PLAYSKOOL TO UNVEIL MAJOR REDESIGN TO ITS CLASSIC TINKERTOY LINE AT 1992

TOY FAIR; POPULAR CONSTRUCTION SYSTEM IS BIGGER, BRIGHTER AND BOLDER
 PAWTUCKET, R.I., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Playskool (R), known for its best-loved classics and innovative new toys, will unveil a major redesign to its ever-popular Tinkertoy (R) line next week (Feb. 10-14) at the 1992 Toy Fair. The updated construction system features easy-to- assemble, brightly-colored large and durable plastic parts that are sure to provide children with enhanced play value.
 With new Tinkertoys, kids can be more creative and will enjoy the increased scale of the product. The big structures kids can design are endless -- from vehicles that really roll, to tall towers, to free- moving ferris wheels. It's perfect for little builders ages 3 and up with big imaginations.
 "Creative in-house 'tinkering,' thanks in part to suggestions made by consumers via our 1-800-PLAYSKL customer service number, has resulted in exciting changes to a classic toy," said Playskool president Dan Owen. "The improvements made in the new product help ensure that current and future generations will extend the long-running success of Tinkertoys."
 Playskool's new Tinkertoys will be available in the following sets:
 Tinkertoy Trial Pack - with 18 pieces
 Tinkertoy Big Builder - with 35 pieces
 Tinkertoy Super Structures - with 50 pieces
 Tinkertoy King-Size Creations - with 70 pieces
 Tinkertoy Colossal Constructions - with 115 pieces
 All new Tinkertoy sets are currently shipping and will be available nationwide in February. Tinkertoy will sell for the following approximate retail prices: Trial Pack for $4.99; Big Builder for $9.99; Super Structures for $14.99; King-Size Creations for $19.99; and Colossal Constructions for $29.99.
