List of Toy Companies

What are the biggest toy companies in the world? With so many toy manufacturers out there, it can be difficult to choose. Rather than rank them, we compiled a list of toy companies featuring some of the most popular toy company names in the business. For instance, Fisher-Price has been making kids' toys since 1930. Among other toy companies in the USA, Hot Wheels has cornered the market on toy cars since American toymaker Mattel introduced it in 1968. Talk about great kids toy companies! 

No toy brands list would be complete without Wham-O? Ever heard of the Hula Hoop? The Frisbee? A Slip 'N Slide? Been Boogie boarding? All of these classic kids' toys were created by the Carson, California-based Wham-O. 

Another one of the top toy companies in the world is LEGO. The Danish toy manufacturer typically runs neck and neck with Mattel for the coveted No. 1 slot of toy manufacturing companies. Whichever is in first any given year, they are both consistently among world's largest toy companies.
