a whole new level with state-of-the-art animation as well as games and
activities that inspire creativity in kids," says Diane Goveia-Gordon,
President of MGA Canada. "MGA is also targeting adults for the first time with
the introduction of the Jeopardy! DVD Home Game System. Anyone who likes the

Each game comes with a console and remote control. Little Tikes has also come
out with My Real Digital Camera(TM) ($49.99), fun for kids ages three years
And the fun doesn't stop there...Techno-kids can now become part of the
wildly popular Bratz cyber world on Be-Bratz.com(TM). Girls can simply log on
using the USB key, which doubles as a stylish necklace, to create web pages,
shop in the virtual mall, and visit the game zone. They can also safely chat
with other Be-Bratz(TM) users. Be-Bratz retails for $39.99 and comes with a
hip computer mouse and one of three different Bratz dolls.
MGA is reaching an entirely new audience with the launch of the
first-ever Jeopardy!(R) DVD Home Game System for adults. Players will feel
like real contestants as they use the game's wireless buzzer to answer up to
1,200 skill-testing trivia questions from the show's famous host Alex Trebek.
The game is fast-paced and includes audio and video clues by the 'Clue Crew,'
- just like the television show. The new game is recommended for adults ages
25 to 49 and retails for $59.99. Jeopardy! is just one of many more advanced
games to come from MGA Entertainment.
Rescue Pets(TM) My ePets.com(TM) is aimed at both boys and girls from six
to 10 years of age. After kids adopt their new pet, they can go online to
groom, feed and care for their new best friend. After walking their epet,
children get to play games, relax in their room or chat with other My
ePets.com users. At only $12.99, this innovative toy is a great value.
To coincide with the release of MGA's first theatrical film, Bratz: The
Movie(TM) dolls launched at the 2007 MuchMusic Video Awards. The most
articulated Bratz ever, these dolls feature new movement at the wrists, elbows
and waist, for myriad poses. Each doll also comes with a camera so girls can
put on their own Bratz fashion show. The dolls are priced at $29.99 each.
And how do Bratz: The Movie dolls stay so beautiful? Another of this
season's fabulous lines is the Bratz Fashion Stylistz(TM). Hair, nail and
make-up artists have been added to the gang to keep the Bratz primped and
pampered for posing. Each comes with fun accessories for girls like
hair-tinting, nail polish and eye glitter. The dolls retail for $24.99 each.
The Bratz Babyz(TM) are not only defending the planet as super heroes in
their new video game, but the Bratz Super Babyz(TM) dolls are also available

a super pet. This make believe fun is a super value at only $14.99.
The Little Tikes(R) 2 in 1 Buildin' To Learn Workshop(TM) is a tool bench
and work station with all the tools that little ones could possibly need to
build their own projects. Kids can use it as a work bench or they can flip the
shelf over to work on the motor. The power tools have real sound effects and
actually work when activated. There's even a chalkboard on the back to plan
out projects. The workshop comes with over 60 pieces including a power drill,
chop saw and blueprints and parts to assemble a model car. For ages three
