Mattel is continuing to show support for essential workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.  #ThankYouHeroes is part of the Company’s “Play it Forward” platform focused on leveraging Mattel brands to give back to communities in times of need. All net proceeds from this new line, including new items from Matchbox, Mega Construx and UNO, will be donated to #FirstRespondersFirst. 

The new items join the previously announced action figures and Little People Community Champions from Fisher-Price celebrating today’s frontline healthcare workers and the everyday heroes keeping communities up and running.

  • Matchbox #ThankYouHeroes Frontline Heroes Vehicles Gift Set – The set features seven die-cast vehicles including an ambulance, garbage truck, grocery delivery van, news helicopter, mobile hospital, package delivery van and police car.
