"We are thrilled to add both Blokus and Whac-A-Mole to Mattel's growing portfolio of fun and affordable family-oriented games," said Tim Kilpin, Mattel’s GM/senior vice president for Boys, Girls & Games, Mattel Brands.

"The addition of these fantastic brands reinforces Mattel's commitment to offering games that are both engaging and entertaining for people of all ages."
