From Boise to Beijing, Mattel′:s toys dominate the universe. Its no–:fun–:and–:games marketing muscle reaches some 140 countries, and its iconic products have been a part of our culture for generations. Now, in this intriguing and entertaining expos?, New York Times bestselling author Jerry Oppenheimer places the world′:s largest toy company under a journalistic microscope, uncovering the dark side of toy land, and exploring Mattel′:s oddball corporate culture and eccentric, often bizarre, cast of characters.

Throughout this scrupulously reported, unauthorized portrait, you′:ll discover how dangerous toys are actually nothing new to Mattel, and why its fearsomely litigious approach within the brutal toy business has helped their products dominate potential rivals such as Bratz.
