PLAYSKOOL'S NEW TALKING BARNEY ARRIVES IN STORES NATIONWIDE

 PAWTUCKET, R.I., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting this week, children nationwide will no longer need a television set to have Barney tell them, "You're stu-u-u-pendous!"
 Playskool's Talking Barney, the flagship product of a comprehensive line of toys, will be hitting store shelves across the country in late June and early July. The toy will retail for approximately $35.
 Children can interact with Talking Barney in two different ways. If a child squeezes Barney's hand, he will suggest things to do such as, "Let's walk like a duck." When the child hugs Barney's tummy, he offers comforting phrases including, "Remember, I Love You."
 Talking Barney features more than 500 different phrases, and speaks in the distinctive, easily recognizable voice children know and love.
 Other new Barney toys from Playskool: BARNEY'S ANIMAL KEYBOARD, where kids can choose from four different musical and learning activities with the voice of their most lovable dinosaur friend to lead them along; the BARNEY PLAY-DOH PLAY BOX, which lets preschoolers make their own Barney and Baby Bop figures using purple Play-Doh and molds; and the TALKING PHONE with Barney and Baby Bop's voices so children can make phone calls to very special friends. The Barney line is rounded out with more great products featuring Barney and Baby Bop including the SPIN AROUND TRAIN, MINI POPPIN' PALS, and CARDBOARD AND WOODBOARD PUZZLES.
