PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- November 08, 2012

Global branded play company Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today announced that it
has been recognized in The Civic 50 survey as one of America’s most
community-minded companies. Hasbro was selected in the top 10 by The Civic 50,
the first comprehensive ranking of S&P 500 corporations that best use their
time, talent, and resources to improve the quality of life in the communities
where they do business. This list also includes companies such as IBM, Citi
and AT&T.

“Hasbro is honored to be recognized alongside some very deserving companies as
a member of the inaugural Civic 50,” said Brian Goldner, president and CEO,
Hasbro, Inc. “For nearly 90 years, Hasbro’s commitment to civic engagement has
been part of our DNA and we remain focused on providing our employees’ talent
and our company’s resources along with an element of fun to help empower
children worldwide.”

Hasbro was evaluated on several elements, including leadership, measurement
and strategy, design, employee civic health, community partnerships, cause
alignment and transparency. The survey was conducted by the National
Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) and Points of Light, the nation’s definitive
experts on civic engagement, in partnership with Bloomberg LP. An article
about The Civic 50 looking at the philanthropic efforts of some of the top
companies appeared in the November 12-18, 2012 issue of Bloomberg
Businessweek. The full Civic 50 ranking is posted on www.businessweek.com at

“The results of The Civic 50 show that what is good for business can also be
good for the community,” said Michael Weiser, Chairman of NCoC, and Jackie
Norris, executive director of Points of Light Corporate Institute, in a joint
statement. “Rather than passively write checks to charities or philanthropies,
the top corporations are actively aligning their resources and professional
skills with the needs of community partners. The Civic 50 reveals which
companies are truly innovative, and we are hopeful that these examples will
inspire other companies to make a difference in communities.”

Hasbro and its employees have a long history of giving back through its
philanthropic programs. With nearly $16 million in product and financial
support provided in 2011 to charitable organizations worldwide, Hasbro’s
philanthropic work focuses on helping children overcome critical life
challenges, bringing them joy, and inspiring them to make their mark on the
world through service. The Team Hasbro employee volunteer program gives
employees four hours of paid time off per month to volunteer with child
focused organizations in the communities where they live and work.

This recognition builds on the leadership distinctions Hasbro has received
from several prestigious organizations in 2012 for its CSR efforts, including
CR Magazine's Annual "100 Best Corporate Citizens" List and the Ethisphere
Institute’s "2012 World's Most Ethical Companies." Hasbro has also been
recognized for the second consecutive year as one of FORTUNE’S “Best Companies
to Work For.”
