The Cost of Raising a Child Star Just Went Up

CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 25, 2005 -- Purpose Media Group, LLC announced the release of Kid Showbiz Magazine, the newest must-have resource for parents and kids in the entertainment industry. The magazine sold out of several Barnes and Noble stores nationwide shortly after being placed on shelves Friday.

Kid Showbiz magazine presents a distinctive philosophy emphasizing that "stardom is never the goal, it is the accident."

"If you like oysters," explains editor, Kiya Tomlin, "then eat oysters because you love them, not because you might find a pearl -- likewise, if kids love to perform, then encourage them to do so because they love it, and not because performing could make them rich and famous."

Purpose Media Group also offers a free Start-up Guide for parents interested in getting their child involved in the performing arts. "Our goal," continues Tomlin, "is to inspire, entertain, and promote the development of happy, healthy, fulfilled children."

"Kid Showbiz magazine is two magazines in one," says Tomlin describing the unique double-cover format, which offers a separate section for parents and kids. "It's a parenting magazine with a twist, and a kid's magazine with a focus."

The parent-side, also called KSB Parent, covers a wide variety of industry specific, career and lifestyle issues designed to inform and guide parents committed to helping their child advance in the entertainment field. On the "flip side," KSB Talent delivers a fun, educational magazine for kids with craft-specific techniques and character-building information that will help a child develop as a person and performer.

Kid Showbiz magazine is available for purchase in select bookstores and newsstands nationwide or directly from the publisher at
