Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On November 5, 2007, the Company entered into an agreement with Tinkers & Chance, a Texas partnership, under which Tinkers & Chance agreed to grant to the Company a worldwide, non-exclusive license to all of its current patents and patent applications, as well as patents arising from applications filed by Tinkers & Chance or its principals through November 2014, and the parties agreed to dismiss pending litigation in federal district court for the Eastern District of Texas. In the foregoing matter, Tinkers & Chance had alleged that the Company’s LeapPad, My First LeapPad, Leapster and Leapster L-MAX platforms infringed certain patents of Tinkers & Chance. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company will make payments to Tinkers & Chance totaling $7.5 million in 2008.

As a result, for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, the Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses and its net loss will each increase by $7.5 million compared to the corresponding items in the Company’s financial statements in the Company’s Form 8-K filed on November 1, 2007. With this change, the Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2007 were $41.9 million and its net loss for the third quarter of 2007 was $10.3 million.
