With the holidays in full swing already, Jim Cramer thought this would be a good time to focus on the best ways for investors to play the holidays in their portfolio. And, for anyone who has young children, that could involve a toy made by Mattel or Hasbro.
Maybe even both, for those who want to keep their kid in a good mood.
For the past few years, if anyone asked Cramer how to play the toy space, he would have said to buy Hasbro. It has the best licensing deals and movie associations, including many partnerships with Disney. Mattel was known as a much more old-school play, selling things like Barbie, Fisher Price toys and Matchbox cars.
"Mattel does have some 'Star Wars' style Hot Wheels, but Hasbro has got virtually everything else from that franchise," the "Mad Money" host said.
