Brand licensing is an exciting, fast paced industry where there’s always something new to get stuck in to. Simply put, brand licensing allows companies to ‘rent’ our well-known brands and use it on their products, connecting our powerful brands to in-demand products such as clothing, home furnishings, sporting goods and much, much more. Imagine seeing Barbie clothing in Missguided or a flying Hot Wheels car – we make that happen!
The beauty of licensing at Mattel is we get to work across not one, but all Mattel and HiT brands meaning variety and high profile brands are our everyday. We get to follow our licensed products from the design stage right through to them being placed on the shelf, meaning we get real ownership and input of the products we proudly produce.
