    couple of quotes:

    The Cars property had the single biggest year in the history of the brand. For the year, Cars was also the #2 vehicle brand at retail behind only Hot Wheels.

    We will continue our work on creating new franchises and optimizing our entertainment partnerships, which for 2012 will include Brave and Batman, as well as the Evergreen Cars property. And we will also continue our focus on expanding our international footprint.

    we worked closely with our retail partners to ensure that shipping, POS and retail inventories were aligned across our portfolio of brands. This proved to be important as overall holiday sales were consistent with our expectations, but were concentrated later in the all-important fourth quarter than in prior years.

    With the success of this effort in 2011, we enter 2012 pleased with the current state of both our inventories and those of our retail partners.

    I tuned in a little late, so I missed the discussion about Rip Clutchgoneski. ;-P

    Some quick notes:
    Mid-single-digit price increase effective 1/1/12
    Opportunistic deployment of cash
    13-18% raises of minimum wage in some states in China!
    Commodity cost increases (labor, oil for packaging)continue
    Deliver brand & play value for the consumer
    Increase in market share 1% in 2011
    Thomas Train wood business line will be added in 2013
    Monster High very popular, esp. “Hydration Station”
    “We worked hard with our retail partners to make sure we had the right inventory on the shelf.” – HA!
    Cars 2 met high expectations.
    Barbie is 40-60% of sales.
