Just read press release on the new Japanese version of Furby, they are standing in long lines and even camping out overnight to purchase them. Remember the last Giga Pet [Tamagotchi] frenzy in Japan?.


The Furby distribution in Japan will help out Hasbro's bottom line. The other important element here is the continuing expansion of HAS in the international market. Last year, international revenues accounted for 65% of Hasbro's worldwide business. In my view, they should be able to flip that (65% international) while still growing the domestic business at a good clip. This is a good step in the right direction.
