FISHER-PRICE ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

 FISHER-PRICE ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER RESULTS
 EAST AURORA, N.Y., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Fisher-Price, Inc.


(NYSE: FPP) announced that it had net income of $.45 per share of common stock for its third quarter, which ended Sept. 27, 1992, compared with net income of $.27 per share for the same quarter last year. Net income for the quarter was $14.4 million, an increase of $5.9 million over the restated net income for the comparable period last year.
 For the first nine months of 1992, the company has reported net income of $.84 per share. Net income for the nine-month period was $26.4 million, a $15.4 million increase over last year's restated net income of $11.0 million for the comparable period.
 Fisher-Price reported net revenues of $186.1 million for the third quarter, a 1 percent decrease from net revenues of $188.0 million for the same period last year. Domestically, net revenues of $130.4 million decreased 3 percent from the same period last year and internationally, net revenues of $55.7 milion increased by 4 percent which includes a $3.7 million favorable currency effect.
 Net revenues for the nine-month period were $486.3 million, a 7 percent increase over net revenues of $454.8 million for the same period last year, with domestic revenues increasing 9 percent and international increasing 1 percent which includes a $3.5 million favorable currency effect.
 Ronald J. Jackson, chairman and chief executive officer of Fisher- Price, said, "Fisher-Price's third quarter results demonstrate continued improvement in operating margins and in earnings per share. The decline in domestic revenues for the quarter reflects some softness in our juvenile products business which we expect will continue in the fourth quarter. However, the domestic revenues in toys continue to show year to year growth led by sales of Action Workshop, Little People(R) Farm, Baby Basketball, Laundry Center, Dino-roarrrrrs, Flip Track Rail and Road and Tournament Table. We're optimistic going into the final quarter of the year, however, we recognize the uncertainties in the current ecomonic environment."
 Fisher-Price also announced that its board of directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $.05 per share of the company's common stock. The dividend will be payable on Dec. 3, 1992, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on Nov. 13, 1992.
 Fisher-Price is an international manufacturer and marketer of children's products. Fisher-Price's common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and is traded under the symbol FPP.

 CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF INCOME (continued)
 (a) For the first six months of the nine months ended
 Sept. 29, 1991, Fisher-Price operated as a division
 of The Quaker Oats Company, therefore, the reported results
 are not necessarily indicative of the financial performance
 of Fisher-Price as a stand-alone entity. As Fisher-Price
 was not a separate publicly-held company during this period,
 net income per common and common equivalent share and
 weighted average common and common equivalent shares
 outstanding are not applicable.
 (b) For comparative purposes, the results for the three and
 nine months ended Sept. 29, 1991 have been restated
 to reflect the change in accounting policy for advertising
 and merchandising, which was implemented on July 1, 1991.
 Application of this change in accounting policy, to
 calendar year 1991, results in the three and nine months
 ended Sept. 29, 1991 advertising and merchandising
 decreasing by $.6 million and increasing by $4.5 million,
 respectively, and the resultant net income increasing by $.3
 and decreasing by $2.3 million, respectively. These
 quarter-to-quarter changes do not affect results for the
 calendar year. Full details of these adjustments will be
 set out in our third quarter Form 10-Q, which will be
 available to all stockholders upon request.
 (c) Where applicable, data has been adjusted to reflect the
 two-for-one stock split distributed June 1, 1992. This is
 the first time that common equivalent shares had a dilutive
 effect on computing net income per common and common
 equivalent share. As such, primary net income per common
 and common equivalent share and weighted average common and
 common equivalent shares outstanding are presented. Since
 fully diluted data is approximately the same as primary data,
 it is not presented.
