Investors still playing with toy stocks

|By:, SA News Editor

The volatile trading in the toy sector continues today, with JAKKS Pacific (JAKK +4%) and Funko (FNKO +2.7%) getting into the mix.

Earlier this week, merger rumors sent Hasbro (HAS +0.3%) and Mattel (MAT -3.1%) on a tear and Toy "R" Us announced more store closings.

Also in the mix, the latest data dump by NPD Group this week showed toys as one of the top five strongest categories. Star Wars products and Nerf toys are underpinning the upturn.
