Hasbro reports 4th consecutive quarter of declines in Girl Toys profits by


As a whole, Hasbro is doing well as a toy company, turning profits for shareholders on a regular basis. Boys products are posting growths, as are the Preschool categories and overall revenues are expanding. However there is really only one category any of us care about, which is the category of "Girls Products", which has just reported its 4th consecutive quarter of declines in revenue.

Why do we care about the "Girls Products" category you ask?
Well, you probably didn't actually ask that or else you'd be pretty damn stupid, considering where you are right now, but regardless; we care because it is the category that My Little Pony products are in.


Things aren't looking so great on that frontier.

The Financial Report from Hasbro reads this "The Girls category revenues declined 28% in the third quarter 2015 to $294.8 million. FURBY continued to drive this decline along with relatively smaller declines in Franchise Brand MY LITTLE PONY, and a decline in FURREAL FRIENDS." 

This represents a loss of nearly $113 Million compared to Q3 of 2014.

Over 9 months, the Girls Products category has lost $170.8 Million over the last 9 months, and an additional $36.4 Million dollars in the final Quarter of 2014.

In 12 months time, Girls Toys, including My Little Pony, have lost over $207 Million worth of revenue.

These losses of revenue are part of a continuing downward trend for the girls products category for Hasbro. These numbers, as reported from Hasbro, show the changes in revenue for the Girls category over the last 7 quarters.

Q1 2014 = +21%
Q2 2014 = +10%
Q3 2014 = +5%
Q4 2014 = -10%
Q1 2015 = -16%
Q2 2015 = -22%
Q3 2015 = -28%

As you can see, Girls Toys have had diminishing returns for nearly 2 years. Only recently however has My Little Pony been explicitly mentioned as being a contributing factor to the reductions.


Coincidentally, the last time that the Girls category posted increases, was when the HUB was on the air, instead of Discovery Family.

So what does this mean for pony? 

Well, it's hard to say.
Surely this, coupled with the continuing plummet in audience and ratings for the television show itself (Season 5 has consistently posted the lowest audience numbers since 2012) cannot be a GOOD indicator for the future of the franchise. But Season 6, the MLP Movie, and at least one more Equestria Girls property are already slated for release in the next few years, so we don't expect pony to be put out to pasture just yet.

That being said, it's time we all admit that the pony wave has crested, crashed, and is rolling back out to sea. When will the next wave hit?
Nobody knows for sure. But let's look out at the horizon as the sun sets shall we?

  1. I bought every toy in the Power Ponies line (including the $60 Fashion size set) as well as the entire Friendship is Magic line, even the freaking barn! DO MY EFFORTS COUNT FOR NOTHING?!?!?!!?

  2. Pony has been nonexistent at Hot Topic and Spencers for a long time now. Pony toys hardly exist in Walmart now, I actually have to search to find them there now (it's such a small area that they constantly move the section to make way for the other toys). Walmart has a horrible-looking pony bathroom set that seems to be online only. At TRU and Target, they are the same awful toys they've had forever. There was a real opportunity with the Sweet Apple Acres set, but they went cheap and flattened the barn, so I didn't end up buying anything. The EQG dolls scare me, but I'll probably buy the minis when they finally come out because they might have actually made a tiny effort on those.

    I wish they'd get rid of whoever has been running their toys into the ground for years, and put someone in who actually cares about making the products resemble the show. And ditch the stock vectors. I want to buy more pony merch, but it sucks, and has since the beginning.

    1. I've noticed the lack of pony merch at Hot Topic for a while now...it's pretty disappointing.
      It's also sad when the fan-made products are better than the official ones:

  3. Maybe there wouldn't be such a decrease in viewers if there weren't two hiatuses back to back.
    Maybe people wouldn't support bad quality of toys if their fans didn't make better at higher prices.

    1. Maybe the people buying the toys are parents for their children. You know, because this is a CARTOON FOR LITTLE GIRLS and all.

      Seriously, what sort of a fucking autismo is actually buying little girl toys for themselves? Plushies are one thing, but actual toys? For little girls? Have fun staying a virgin forever, ya fuckin' weirdo.

      Delete
    2. So you're saying little girl toys should be shit?

      Also, don't be an idiot. Kids more than anyone will refuse toys that are not what they want.They've seen the show. They know that color Celestia is, and it sure is not fucking pink.

  4. They've fucking asked for it. Their products are utter lazy trash. Its basically been the same shit on shelves for five years. With the exclusion of Disney Decendants and a few SW "6 Black Series and Marvel legends figures everything they produce is low grade. The Disney lines I bet have a level of decent quality due to Disney being on their case about it. Also, five fucking years, most toyetic franchises cycle out their shows and product lines between one to three years so they remain fresh to the target demographic. Hasbro fucking does this with Transformers for fuck's sake. G3 last seven and it basically gave the franchsie a bad reputation. Ben 10 fucked over with the third series and the fourth suffered for it, and that franchise lasted 8. You end a toyetic series before it or its products burn out.

    1. Oh yes. A single person is responsible for a full year of decline in sales in the entire Girls Toys sector of a toy company. Flawless logic.
      And do continue using that derogatory word. You're really showing how much of a coward you are in not putting your name next to your hate speech.

      And you're right, I don't know what their talking about since they just shouted "PURPLE TRANNY" and nothing else.

    5. I have no motivation to. Everyone here (except Prismatic and Pika petey) is a coward who hides behind anonymity to avoid any and all responsibility for anything hurtful or offensive they may say. Why should I put in that kind of effort if the person I'm responding to doesn't want to take responsibility for what they say online to begin with?

    9. Interesting fact: according to what Capper said in /mlp/ anniversary thread on 4chan, our Tranny actually contributed games to the giveaway held by Capper during that weekend. So turns out, she is not all that bad. Maybe just a little.

    10. Yes, not wanting to be anonymous and wanting to have responsibility for what you say makes you an attention whore.
      And even more people saying a horrible derogatory word. Wonderful. Do you think if you say "TRANNY!" enough times she'll turn back into a man like it's a spell? Yes, she is transgender. That is a fact. Thanks for bringing it up.

    17. Listen Alex I. guy, you are acting suspiciously like PT's sock - trying to trick people into uncovering their personal info, just like PT liked to do. If you got something serious to say, why not just submit an article to HN? It's not like they've got anything better to post.

    19. "Everyone here (except Prismatic and Pika petey) is a coward who hides behind anonymity to avoid any and all responsibility for anything hurtful or offensive they may say." Alex I.

      You've got it all wrong my friend, the thing is there should no responsibility to be taken for the things said here, be they anonymous or not, but people like you wish to find people whom they can target and unleash the Internet hate mob upon.

      Those posting here anonymous are not cowerds, they are smart and know how the Internet and SJW's work. The truth is, Alex, it is people like you, that are the cowards. You go looking for trouble, you go looking for things to point out shame, daring others to show their identity so they can be ostracized and made a pariah. All for simply saying and doing things that you deem inappropriate by your standards and wish to silence anyone that might contradict your opinions, even if in jest as the majority here are doing.

      You know I can think of a lot of people that have had to deal being made outcasts because they didn't fit a particular social mold and their struggle wasn't just so people like you can turn around and do the same to others.

    20. pretty funning that alex i turns up to defend PURPLE TRANNY right after he says he will stop responding to anonymous comments about him. sounds to me like the tranny sent out his little white knight to do the dirty work for him. it wouldn't be the first time transfats sent someone else to fight for him.

    25. It's much simpler than that, anonymous person at 01:37: I just want to know who I'm talking to. A simple unique identifier is all I ask.
      And I abhor people who sick the Internet mob on others. That is even more cowardly than being Anonymous. I don't have the followers or reputation to rally people to attack someone online anyway. And I'd never want that power.
      I prefer 1-on-1. Then the conversation doesn't get out of hand and devolve to shouting.

  6. Serves 'em right. I won't mind seeing MLP:FiM cancelled, it's been a mediocre-tier show for years now imho.
    If they hadn't treated Faust like shit and basically fired her I bet things would be going much better. Also, if they made toys that weren't terrible. Drooling morons

  7. For what Hot Topic entails I think a lot of the merchandise they sold really didn't make a lot of sense. I do remember they could not at all sell the expensive Dr. Whooves and Derpy Christmas lights two years ago. Then again I did get all of my hoodies on clearance as well as the polo shirts so patience is a virtue.

    I don't remember who said this but there was a rather expensive and well made Transformers collection that no one bought because it was too expensive while a lot of people liked the cheap pony toys cause they were cheap. Heck they're so cheap now they're in stores in nothing but a plastic bag.

    The other major component, something I've learned and I won't shut up about, is that when competing against other companies copying what they do is very poor move. Instead of trying to secure a new market one is needlessly going against others which forces a more of a rude push than a welcoming pull.

    For some reason I do speculate that many bronies also don't have a lot of money so they save up for that one big thing, burn out, and go and do something else. Not sure if this is true, though.

  8. If you had looked into the report, you'd find out that FiM itself actually had a slight increase in Q3, it's actually Equestria Girls that's brought MLP down:

    https://derpicdn.net/img/view/2015/10/19/1005974__safe_text_hasbro_my+little+pony.png

    It should be noted that toy sales overall have been down across the board, Mattel has been having the same problems Hasbro is having; nowadays kids would rather have video games and iphones than plastic dolls.

    So stop being so melodramatic

  12. whole, Hasbro is doing well as a toy company, turning profits for shareholders on a regular basis. Boys products are posting growths, as are the Preschool categories and overall revenues are expanding. However there is really only one category any of us care about, which is the category of "Girls Products", which has just reported its 4th consecutive quarter of declines in revenue.

    Why do we care about the "Girls Products" category you ask?
    Well, you probably didn't actually ask that or else you'd be pretty damn stupid, considering where you are right now, but regardless; we care because it is the category that My Little Pony products are in.


    Things aren't looking so great on that frontier.

    The Financial Report from Hasbro reads this "The Girls category revenues declined 28% in the third quarter 2015 to $294.8 million. FURBY continued to drive this decline along with relatively smaller declines in Franchise Brand MY LITTLE PONY, and a decline in FURREAL FRIENDS."

    This represents a loss of nearly $113 Million compared to Q3 of 2014.

    Over 9 months, the Girls Products category has lost $170.8 Million over the last 9 months, and an additional $36.4 Million dollars in the final Quarter of 2014.

    In 12 months time, Girls Toys, including My Little Pony, have lost over $207 Million worth of revenue.

    These losses of revenue are part of a continuing downward trend for the girls products category for Hasbro. These numbers, as reported from Hasbro, show the changes in revenue for the Girls category over the last 7 quarters.

    Q1 2014 = +21%
    Q2 2014 = +10%
    Q3 2014 = +5%
    Q4 2014 = -10%
    Q1 2015 = -16%
    Q2 2015 = -22%
    Q3 2015 = -28%
