Hasbro is one of the largest toy companies in the world and the parent company for Wizards Of The Coast, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal, it recently made an offer to take over its chief rival, Mattel.

 

 

This combination would create a toy behemoth with a substantial share of the U.S. and world toy business, especially in certain categories. I would think it would also violate antitrust laws, but I’m not a lawyer, so I guess that part remains to be seen. But it’s interesting news none the less, according to the WSJ, the offer was made, but there were no details on how much, how it would work, or even if this would go anywhere. I guess time will tell.
