MANAGEMENT'S REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING
The Company's management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) promulgated under the Exchange Act. Hasbro's internal control system was designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Hasbro's management assessed the effectiveness of its internal control over financial reporting as of December 26, 2004. In making its assessment, Hasbro's management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in "Internal Control Integrated Framework". Based on this assessment, Hasbro's management concluded that, as of December 26, 2004, its internal control over financial reporting is effective based on those criteria. Hasbro's independent auditors have issued an audit report on management's assessment of its internal control over financial reporting, which appears in Item 8.
