Flemington, NJ, August 21, 2007 – Results of a national study conducted among 301 Americans revealed that the majority (76%) reported that they will continue to purchase Mattel products in the future even after the massive toy recall.
The communications research study was conducted by HCD Research, during August 20-21, to obtain Americans’ views of video comments made by Bob Eckert, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Mattel, Inc, on August 14. His comments were made in response to the company’s recall of about 9 million Chinese-made toys that may contain lead paint and magnets children can swallow.
While viewing the video, participants indicated their levels of believability by moving their mouse from left to right on a continuum. The responses were recorded in quarter-second intervals and reported in the form of curves. Participants were asked pre- and post-viewing questions.
