Hasbro Inc. is an American multinational toy and board game company. It is one of the largest toy makers in the world. The corporate headquarters is located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The majority of its products are manufactured in East Asia.
Having previously sold toys under the Hasbro trade name, the company shortened its name to Hasbro Industries in 1968 and sold a minor stake in the corporation to the public.
In the mid-1980s, Hasbro moved past Mattel to become the world’s largest toy company. Hasbro then moved to outsell Mattel’s Barbie in the fashion doll market with the 1986 introduction of Jem, a record producer/rock musician dual identity fashion doll. Initially posting strong sales, Jem plummeted and was withdrawn from the market in 1987. Hasbro followed up in 1988 with Maxie, a Barbie-sized blonde doll, so Barbie clothing and accessories would fit. Maxie lasted until 1990.
Hasbro was named by Fortune magazine as one of the top 100 companies to work for in 2013, citing that the “company enhanced its vacation policy by giving new employees three weeks off in their first year instead of having to wait five years.
