HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 12, 2007) - Mathew Knowles, who has made it a top priority to release child-friendly content over the past three years, launches Music World Kids. The first release, "Music World Kids 5 CD Pack," is a 5 CD collection containing over five hours of kid-friendly, parent-approved music. The new release, targeted to children up to 11 years old, includes "Nursery Rhymes Vol. 1," "Nursery Rhymes Vol. 1 Spanish," "Kid's Rap Radio Vols. 1 + 2," "Kid's Rap Radio Vols. 1+2 Spanish," and "Krazy Kuzins It's A Kid's Thing." With special performances by Solange Knowles, Trin-i-Tee 5:7, Miredys and Krazy Kuzins, the 5 CD pack satisfies a need from parents seeking developmental and safe music for young listeners, all at a price of under $20.00. "Music World Kids 5 CD Pack" is available November 20, 2007 in mass merchant stores including Wal-Marts nationwide.

"Music World Master Series - Holiday" is a stocking-stuffer full of family-gathering favorites performed by some of the world's most recognized performers, including Destiny's Child, Solange Knowles, Trin-i-Tee 5:7 and introducing Brian C. Wilson. Destiny's Child's rendition of the classic, "Silent Night," is a favorite and is performed with a fervent commitment unto the season. The low priced five song EP is available nationwide on November 20, 2007.

"Parents who like rap and hip-hop have trouble sharing it with their kids, since most of it's inappropriate, so this cleaned-up version sung by kids is a safe, great introduction. The beats are fun and funky and well-crafted," said New York Post of Mr. Knowles' previous release, "Kid's Rap Radio." "Krazy Kuzins Hip-Hop Holiday Cheer" and "Krazy Kuzins It's A Kid's Thing" follow in the footsteps of "Kid's Rap Radio." The holiday cheer CD, in stores now, contains updated, hip-hop inspired holiday classics that are sung using original lyrics by kids for kids! The Krazy Kuzins, Jake, Abby G, John Mike and Jenny B, bring cool and hip songs to life as they rap about everything from Santa and Rudolph to their wacky Christmas lists. "Krazy Kuzins It's A Kid Thing," in stores November 20, 2007, boasts original tracks by the funky foursome children will enjoy jamming along with! As with Mr. Knowles' past parental-approved initiatives, Krazy Kuzins provide music that is cool enough for parents and clean enough for kids.

Baby Jamz, the ever popular preschool line of toys launched earlier this year through a partnership with Mathew Knowles and Planet Toys, continues expand its availability. Launched in 1,500 Wal-Mart stores nationwide, the line will now carried in over 2,800 stores across the country. Customer favorites include the Boom Box Shape Sorter, a toy that engages children to complete three different hip and updated nursery rhymes by placing the square, triangle and circle LED light up blocks in the correct order, and Nursery Rhymes Volume 1, the accompanying CD release to the initial toy line which includes updated and very hip versions of classic nursery rhymes such as "Old Mac Donald," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," and "This Old Man," among others.
