Launch of Monster High at LICENSING International Expo

Jun '10
At the 2010 Licensing International Show, Mattel, Inc. unveils its multi-category line-up of best-in-class partners with new apparel and footwear alliances, as well as global personal care collections, products that inspire an active lifestyle and original branded play experiences for boys and girls of all ages.

For the first time in company history, Mattel will roll out a new intellectual property, Monster High, across a number of diverse consumer products categories simultaneously. This new franchise targeting teen and tween girls brings together the hip teenage descendants of the world's most famous monsters to brave the trials and tribulations of high school. Monster High reaches girls via multiple touch points through strategic partnerships year-one with Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, best-selling author Lisi Harrison, Universal Pictures, Justice and Party City.

“Mattel is a leader in providing meaningful brand experiences that translate into innovative and successful cross-brand partnerships,” said Neil Friedman, President, Mattel Brands. “Our ability to secure best-in-class category experts to introduce teens and tween to the Monster High property is a testament to our brand management expertise and reinforces our long-standing legacy as one of the world's premier licensing partners.”

Across its larger portfolio of entertainment brands, Mattel also continues its strategic licensing agreements with licensors of many popular kids' properties, including Disney, Warner Bros., World Wrestling Entertainment and HIT Entertainment.
