Adjusted earnings were $4.76 per share, down from $5.38 per share last year.

Net sales for the third quarter were $242.3 million, down 14% versus $280.1 million last year. The decline was driven by lower sales of products related to Disney's Frozen and Frozen 2, which were strong contributors to sales in the third quarter 2019, and by sharp declines in sales of Disguise Halloween costumes, demand for which was curtailed by COVID-19.
