Curiostiy Kits: Calling All Heroes

CK Announces New Trading Card Quickits

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - October 1, 2007) - What do superheroes and all-star athletes have in common? They both have their own Curiosity Kits® personalized Trading Cards, available this fall from Action Products International, Inc. (NASDAQ: APII), a leading educational toy designer.

Using their own images, imaginations and the guidelines provided in kits, children create and trade their own trading cards, featuring themselves as the all-star athlete or superhero they've always dreamed of.

"With the trading card series we are moving to an exciting new product combining elements of self expression with creativity in a unique way," said Richard Malagodi, president and chief operating officer of Action Products International, Inc. "The cards allow children to dream up, live out, and trade an experience completely unique to them, and we think that is incredibly important in terms of growth and development."

Kids will have the ability to step into the spotlight and show off their athletic skill with the All-Star Sports Trading Cards QuicKit. Just in time for the start of several major sports seasons, young all-stars can create their own sports trading cards with their favorite photos, plus colorful stickers proclaiming "You're the best," "Rookie of the Year!" and much more. Kids then have the choice to make up a winning team with the cards, or feature themselves in various sports to collect or trade with friends.

With the Superhero Trading Cards QuicKit, mild-mannered youngsters can transform themselves and become larger than life! Included in the kit are the coolest costume elements and mask stickers around so kids can craft their very own super trading cards using their favorite photos. The fun doesn't stop once the card is created as the new heroes give themselves unique names and describe their amazing super-powers on the reverse side.

Each kit includes easy fold and sticker assembly and enough material for four cards.
