Mattel Income Slides on Drop in Barbie Sales
Mattel’s profit down 53% on drop in sales for Barbie, Hot Wheels
From now on...
I will no longer advertise Barbie products for free.
(Yes, that's what blogs are, free ads.)
I will only talk about Barbie products which satisfy any of the following criteria...
1. OOAK or modified dolls
3. ONLY available from secondary market (at least the profit doesn't go directly to Mattel)
4. Doll items on sale (with at least 40% discount) from the primary market.
...until Mattel decides to produce good quality and fair-priced dolls.
The rule will be broken only if I'm paid to talk about the dolls currently available in the market.
We have been (consciously or not) telling our fellow hobbyists to buy and buy more dolls but recently, Mattel has been producing dolls not even worthy to mention.
