 GALOOB TOYS OBTAINS HALT TO SPENCER GIFTS' SALES
 OF UNAUTHORIZED GAME GENIE(TM)
 SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Lewis Galoob Toys Inc. (NYSE: GAL) today announced that a stipulation and order had been entered in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, in Galoob's unfair competition lawsuit against Spencer Gifts Inc. The stipulation and order precludes Spencer Gifts from purchasing, selling or marketing in the United States Game Genie(TM) video game enhancers that had been licensed and manufactured for sale in Canada, until a hearing for a preliminary injunction is to be held at some point after Feb. 3.
 Laurence Pulgram, trial counsel and a partner in the San Francisco firm of Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Robertson & Falk, stated: "We are pleased to have it recognized that Galoob has rights as U.S. trademark holder of the Game Genie, and would suffer harm from Spencer Gifts' sale of a Game Genie version not authorized for the American market. We believe that we will prevail in our efforts to enjoin permanently Spencer Gifts' illegal activity, so that we may continue to enjoy the American consumer's confidence in our products and our integrity."
 Galoob filed a lawsuit alleging unfair competition against Spencer Gifts on Jan. 10, seeking injunctive relief and damages suffered by Galoob as a result of Spencer Gifts' illegal sale of the unauthorized Game Genies.
 Lewis Galoob Toys Inc. designs, develops, markets and distributes a variety of toy products sold worldwide.
