JUST TOYS GAINS NEW DISNEY LICENSES

 NEW YORK, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- In an exciting new development, Just Toys, Inc. (NASDAQ: JUST), has acquired several Disney licenses, it was announced today by Rose Evangelista, president and chief operating officer of the company.
 Just Toys will introduce two new, breakthrough products based on the tremendous success of the No. 1 animated movie of all time -- "Aladdin" -- which is being released on home video this fall. First is the Aladdin Flying Magic Carpet Hovercraft, featuring an innovative technology: Aladdin will actually "ride" the carpet as it glides along on a stream of air. Just Toys also has plans to premiere a second Aladdin Flying Magic Carpet, a sound-activated toy that "flies" through the air when you clap your hands.
 According to Evangelista, retailer response to preliminary presentations has been tremendous, and she predicts the new Aladdin products will "fly off the shelves." In other news, Disney licensed characters will also be featured in the line of Wind-Em(TM)s, an authentically detailed collection of wind-up action toys. The new Wind-Ems will include Disney's Aladdin, Jasmine and Abu.
 In addition to other popular character licenses, Aladdin and Jasmine join the Just Toys Bubble Kids(TM), a line of collectible bubble toys that also doubles as a necklace.
