Doesn't it seem though that taking action to remove "the little guy" from their business means that giving away those $5 and $20 gifts were about as good an investment as MAT purchasing the Learning Company and then giving it away....?

I wonder if they did as little research into that investment as Mattel did into the Learning Company. It was probably all done on the basis of the mythical graphs of marketing morons as well.
