AND THAT'S TAKING THE FUN OUT OF THE 30 BILLION DOLLAR TOY BUSINESS. ALTHOUGH THE INDUSTRY IS MAKING AND SELLING MORE TOYS THAN EVER --

"it's created a struggle in the industry"
IN THIS MULTI-FRONT-FIGHT....THE MAIN BATTLE IS BETWEEN TOYS R US...

AND RETAIL'S T-REX -- WALMART. THE DISCOUNT CHAIN ONLY GOT SERIOUS ABOUT TOYS SIX YEARS AGO. NOW IT SELLS MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE...USUALLY FOR LESS.

(Jim Silver -- Publisher, "Toy Wishes" Magazine)

"When you are giving toys away at below costs nobody can make money and all of the other retailers have to lower their prices to compete"
DISOCUNTERS SLASH TOY PRICES TO LURE CUSTOMERS INTO STORES..WHERE THEY OFTEN BUY HIGHER-PROFIT PRODUCTS IN OTHER DEPARTMENTS. THE STRATEGY HAS
PUT #2 TOY SELLER TOYS R US ON THE DEFENSIVE...



(Warren Kornblum -- Toys "R" Us)

"our job is to really make sure we have the hot toys...that they are out ..and that they are in our stores across the country"
..SO STOCKING MUST-HAVE TOYS LIKE "HOKEY POKEY ELMO" IS A MUST-DO. INDUSTRY INSIDERS EXPECT WALMART COULD BE SOLD OUT OF ELMO'S BY NEXT WEEK. TOYS R US IS BETTING ITS LARGER INVENTORY WILL WIN OVER DESPERATE PARENTS.

(Kornblum)

"if anybody has a shot at being in stock -- it's us"
HOWEVER -- THE MOST CRITICAL INDUSTRY SHORTAGE IS -- BELIEVE IT OR NOT -- KIDS. THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN UNDER 12 IS DECLINING -- AND THEY ARE GROWING OUT OF TOYS FASTER THAN EVER.

(Sean McGowan -- Toy Analyst)

"The heart of the toy market is the five to seven or five to eight year old -- at nine to ten they are migrating to other things."
TOY MAKERS HOPE TO HOLD THE LINE WITH PRIVATE LABEL TOYS....AND EDGIER PRODUCTS -- ESPECIALLY FOR PRE-TEEN GIRLS.

(McGowan)

"a product like Bratz for example is not the same fashion doll as Barbie -- its got a little bit of an attitude -- so that's an attempt to appeal to a kid that's more sophisticated."
BUT WITH SO LITTLE ROOM FOR ERROR -- PROFIT-STARVED RETAILERS ARE RELUCTANT TO CARRY TOYS WITHOUT MASS APPEAL. SOME EXPERTS WARN SOON IT WON'T BE PARENTS THAT CHOOSE TOYS FOR THEIR CHILDREN -- IT COULD BE WALMART..

(Silver)

"for example - they really don't carry Thomas The Tank engine -- and all of those play sets -- and so if Walmart becomes the entire toy business -- there goes Thomas.."
..AND SOME SAY -- THE KIND OF TOYS THAT BECOME THE TREASURES OF CHILDHOOD...

(McGowan)

"We are not talking about cancer medicine -- we are talking about play things so as long as kids can be satisfied -- they are ok -- but I know that manufacturers are increasingly frustrated knowing that if they don't get Target -- Walmart and Toys R Us to accept their line -- it will be tough to make any money."
