mattel_logoABC TV News reported on the board game boom here. No way to embed the video, unfortunately.

Meanwhile, Alice Gomstyn on Money Beat reports on the board game trends from the NY Toy Fair. She talked to Hasbro and Mattel.

Hasbro is producing new variants of their board games, making them cheaper, and pushing family game nights. Mattel said that the toilet in their new Barbie’s Dreamhouse makes flushing noises.

Hard to believe that Mattel is doing badly.
