U.S. Toy Sales Down

U.S. toy makers are banking on big holiday sales this year to help pull the industry out of a slump.

Researchers say 2006 sales through October are down from last year.

That means toy retailers will have to make $9 billion in November and December if the industry hopes to match numbers from last year.

Experts believe the sales slump may be a sign that children are losing interest in toys at younger ages, turning instead to video games, DVDs and web surfing.
