There’s just something about children’s toys that makes them magical. The fact that a small piece of plastic can be transformed into just about anything through the imagination of a child creates a sense of wonder in just about everyone.
We never cease to be amazed at how the toys we provide brighten up the faces of the children at events, and that’s why we always work hard to provide the hottest and most beloved brands. The most iconic toy brands of all time are still popular today and are mainstays at our clients’ events. Here are just a few of the best.
It’s hard to argue with a brand that has its own theme park, isn’t it? When put together by someone with a lot of imagination and patience, these colourful interlocking plastic bricks can create just about anything. Based out of Billund, Denmark, Lego has been in business since 1949, and crossed the 600 billion brick mark last year! With Lego shuttle displays at NASA and full-scale city reconstructions, there’s no wonder that so many parents crave these toys for their kids.
Perhaps the most well-known American toy brand, Mattel has been putting smiles on kids’ faces since 1945. This California-based company is in control of iconic toys like Barbie, Hot Wheels, and WWE figures. They do billions in sales each year, and sell in more than 140 countries around the world. Their toys have spawned movies, cultural trends, and shopping frenzies. Not too long ago they acquired their first movie studio, and they even produce board games! No event in Toronto would be complete without the kids opening up a few great Mattel products.
Mr. Potato Head, G.I Joe, Transformers, Pokémon… ring a bell at all? If you ever had any of these growing up, then you’ve had a toy made by Hasbro. They make toys and board games that have reached iconic status, starred in movies, and launched TV series. Based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Hasbro have been hard at work making toys for nearly a century!
Pop! provides upscale toys without upscale pricing, and we do so because we love to make everyone smile. If you want any of the most iconic toy brands in the world at your next event, all you have to do is request them!
