Hasbro To Raise Toy Prices Due To Raw Material Costs

Shares of the Monopoly maker, which late on Monday announced the sale of Entertainment One Music to Blackstone Group Inc (BX.N) for $385 million, rose 1% in morning trading.” » Continue Reading.

Their materials are cheaper than they were 10 years ago, plastics are much , much cheaper so this is just pure greed.

If prices go up higher, I'm done. They're too expensive as it is and it's just robbery past this point. People are out of work and the economy isn't good and all they can think about is raising prices. Fuck them.

Shipping right now is super expensive.. All air freight from any courier has a premium on it. So i could see that but this appears to be a permanent change and not one to deal with the current pandemic situation.

Re: Hasbro To Raise Toy Prices Due To Raw Material Costs

raise prices + hollow out almost everything. hey kids, Pretender shells are back (minus the pretender).

Kinder Egg X Transformers will be the next collaboration.

That should keep the shareholders happy.
