Janex International Inc. posted a net loss in its third quarter, as its sales fell 34%.

The Woodland Hills-based maker of children's products posted a net loss of $357,693 in the quarter that ended Sept. 30, compared to a $239,149 profit a year ago. Sales in the latest quarter fell to $2.98 million, down from $4.53 million last year.

The company said its poor results were due to a lack of major licensed toy products this year.
