Mattel Launches NFT Platform Via ‘Mattel Creations,’ Pivots From WAX To Flow Blockchain

Toymaker Mattel is doubling down on its NFT activities, announcing the launch of NFTs on a new dedicated platform, ‘Mattel Creations’, this week. In a press release obtained by Bitcoinist on Monday, Mattel shared its new platform activities, which are expected to be led by the toy company’s latest series of Hot Wheels NFTs.

Let’s take a quick look at what this latest announcement from Mattel is all about, its new blockchain of choice, and what to expect going forward.

Hot Wheels NFTs: pedal to the metal

Hot Wheels NFTs have been one of the most successful NFT projects to operate on the WAX ​​blockchain, but once Mattel Creations formally launches its NFT support (which is slated for early 2023) it will no longer be the blockchain of choice for Mattel. and are Hot Wheels NFTs. The signature toy is entering its fourth series of NFT releases, and the new platform is a bull sign for NFT fanatics, reflecting a continued and invested interest in NFTs for the toy brand that bodes well for collectibles​ ​blockchain-based in the future.

Meanwhile, Mattel Creations is already in the works, albeit not with NFT support. Creations brings to life a ‘toys as art’ inspiration, and digital products will continue to complement this. Previously, Hot Wheels NFTs were usually sold in bundles priced at $25, including a voucher for a physical Hot Wheels car, and typically sold out quickly. Creations also hosts a bevy of cultural collaborations from the toymaker, which will also be ready for NFT involvement.

In the big picture, Mattel has likely hit a home run when it comes to introductory NFT strategy across brands. According to data provided by WAXMarketCap and CryptoSlam, Mattel’s Hot Wheels releases were a success, bringing in over $5 million in on-chain NFT sales from over 20,000 users. Additionally, Hot Wheels has maintained relevance on the chain and is still in the top 3 by volume over the past 30 days on WAX. It will be a big win for Flow and Mattel to move to a dedicated platform.
