<center><b><i>Two ALL-NEW Titles From The Award-Winning
Disney Learning Adventures Series </i>


WINNIE THE POOH: SHAPES AND SIZES

WINNIE THE POOH: WONDERFUL WORD ADVENTURE


<i>Discover The Magic Of Learning With Pooh And His Pals </i>

<u>Developed With Leading Educators, Available On August 1</u>
</b></center>

BURBANK, Calif., May 8, 2006 – Awarded a 2005 Parent’s Choice Award for Winnie The Pooh 1,2,3s
and Winnie The Pooh ABCs, Walt Disney Home Entertainment presents two all-new Disney Learning
Adventure titles, <b>WINNIE THE POOH: SHAPES AND SIZES and WINNIE THE POOH:
WONDERFUL WORD ADVENTURE</b>, each available on Disney DVD August 1st. Developed by
Disney and leading educators, these new DVDs help build the fundamental skills a child should have
prior to entering pre-school or kindergarten. Featuring Winnie The Pooh and his friends, including
Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and Rabbit the DVD integrates entertaining stories with cognitive learning based
themes to help educate young audiences.

Millions of children have grown up with Pooh and his friends, and now the Hundred Acre Wood gang is
back to help future generations develop a foundation in language skills, analytical thinking, and
mathematical concepts. Each title provides a friendly environment that encourages children to participate
directly with the programming and includes learn-along activities that expand the story theme and engage
children’s imagination. Both titles also offer bonus games to reinforce the lessons learned in the program.

<b>WINNIE THE POOH: SHAPES AND SIZES and WINNIE THE POOH: WONDERFUL WORD
ADVENTURE</b> are each available for $19.99 (SRP).

<center><b>WINNIE THE POOH: SHAPES AND SIZES</b></center>
With Harvest Day just around the corner, Rabbit needs Pooh’s help to find boxes, baskets, and crates of
all shapes and sizes in order to organize his garden goodies. The trouble is, Pooh isn’t sure which shape
is which and what size is what. But with a little help from Owl and some fun-filled observation of things
around the Hundred Acre Wood, Pooh learns how to fit different vegetable shapes into right-sized baskets
in time for a very unique and special harvest feast. This lively story uses colorful, kid-friendly objects
including kits and pumpkins to teach children what triangles, circles, and other shapes look like (and even
how to draw them).

<center><u>BONUS GAME: POOH’S POP UP PUZZLE GAME </u></center>
Silhouetted images of favorite Winnie The Pooh characters are broken up into various pieces consisting of
various shapes. Players are invited to match the shapes with a corresponding navigation bar. As players
uncover and identify each hidden character, there are fun lessons to be learned about different shapes and
sizes.

Owl has organized an elaborate and fun series of races in the forest. In order to reach the finish line and
earn a medal, the Hundred Acre Wood gang must figure out word games and perform a series of opposite
moves. But what are opposites? Eager to win, everyone soon discovers that when one way of moving
doesn’t work, moving in a contrary way usually does. After an exciting day of games, one friend in
particular will surprise everyone, including himself, when he wins the most special medal of all. This
engaging story stimulates children to expand their vocabulary through fun word associations. Amusing,
trial-and-error situations illustrate word opposites, allowing children to further broaden their language
skills.

<center><u>BONUS GAME: TIGGER’S UPS AND DOWNS AND INS AND OUTS GAME </u></center>

In this multi-level, side-scrolling game, players are encouraged to learn about opposites. As Tigger
bounces up and down across the Hundred Acre Wood, he comes across several obstacles. Players must
choose the correct ‘opposite’ choice in order to move Tigger along to the next obstacle.

These new titles in the <b>DISNEY LEARNING ADVENTURE SERIES</b> promote early reading and math
skills. The titles include age-appropriate activities that address important goals at the preschool stage of a
child’s development.
