<center><b>THE BABY EINSTEIN COMPANY PARTNERS WITH MARLEE MATLIN ON
THE RELEASE OF ITS NEWEST LANGUAGE TITLE,
<i>Leading Infant Brand and Academy Award Winning Actress Create Video Exposing Little Ones to
Various Forms of Communication</i></b>
BURBANK, Calif. (February 20, 2005)
– The Baby Einstein Company, parents’ number one choice for infant
videos, announces the release of Baby Wordsworth™
, an innovative new title created to expose children to first
words and the idea that communication can take various forms. Hosted by classic Baby Einstein™ puppets, the title
includes a special guest appearance by Marlee Matlin, Academy Award Winning actress, who introduces little ones
to the concept of language, including verbal, written and sign. Scheduled to launch July 19, 2005, Baby
is the first title in the award-winning Baby Einstein DVD collection to be offered with closed
captions, and is an interactive way to explore, discover and communicate with babies and toddlers.
At nine months of age, babies begin exploring ways to communicate and <b>Baby Wordsworth</b> provides
interactive and meaningful exposure to multiple forms of communication, including non-verbal communication.
<b>Baby Wordsworth</b> introduces little ones to 25 different words from five different rooms of the house. Tapping into
a baby’s natural curiosity about the everyday objects they see in their home -- from the kitchen table and living room
window to their favorite teddy bear and ball -- <b>Baby Wordsworth</b> takes parents and children on an adventure
through the kitchen, yard, living room, playroom and bedroom. In each room, little ones are exposed to various
representations of the specific word being introduced – first the written word is shown, followed by Marlee signing
the word, then the word is said out loud for little ones to hear. <b>Baby Wordsworth</b> also incorporates the core
elements that make the award-winning Baby Einstein video collection so unique, including classical music, real-world
images and engaging puppet shows.
“As a mother of four children, I know how wonderful it is to spend time with your baby and see them
discover the world around them,” said Marlee Matlin. “By partnering with Baby Einstein, we knew we could
bring to life the idea of non-verbal communication to many parents and children. All children, whether hearing
impaired or not, will enjoy this title as a way to discover first words and different ways to communicate. Working
with the company has been wonderful because they understand what is appropriate for little ones and how to
create engaging products that encourage parents to spend time discovering the wonders of the world with their
In addition to being featured throughout the video, Marlee Matlin hosts the <b>Baby Wordsworth</b> DVD

phrases in sign language, and various story telling features. The sign language featured throughout <b>Baby
Wordsworth</b> is a combination of American Sign Language and other hand gestures to communicate concepts and
words. As with every Baby Einstein DVD, <b>Baby Wordsworth</b> features multi-language viewing options
including French, English and Spanish.
