Where the magic of wonder begins.

Mattel Headquarters

Mattel's headquarters are in El Segundo, California - just a few miles down the road from where it all started in a series of garage workshops. Though we haven't lost our garage mindset, we've certainly traded up on our digs. We're now proud to offer our employees inspirational workspaces, opportunities to play and give back, and amazing on-site conveniences.
