  SAN DIEGO, CA, Jul 31 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
KidZui, The Internet for Kids (www.kidzui.com), has launched the KidZui
Seal Program to recognize Web sites that meet high editorial standards
for family content and that support KidZui's mission of bringing the
Internet to all kids in a fun, safe and engaging way.

    The KidZui Site Seal lets parents know that all content on a Web site has
been carefully screened and approved by KidZui's editorial team. Once
approved, the Web site is immediately included in KidZui and can display
the KidZui Site Seal, demonstrating to visitors that it is family-friendly
and kid-fun.

    The KidZui Support Seal is designed for family-oriented Web sites that
support KidZui's mission of a fun and safe Internet for kids and would
like to recommend KidZui to their visitors.

    Designed for kids age 3-12, KidZui is a free revolutionary new Web browser
and online service that offers access to the best Internet content for
kids -- more than 800,000 kid-friendly Web sites, videos and pictures. All
content in KidZui has been reviewed and approved by the editorial team of
trained and compensated educators and parents.

    "As the Internet for kids, KidZui fosters a safe virtual playground where
kids are free to learn and explore engaging and fun content," said Cliff
Boro, chairman and chief executive officer of KidZui. "We have become
known for our rigorous editorial program, so when parents surfing outside
KidZui see the KidZui seal, they will know immediately that a site is
kid-appropriate. We also truly appreciate the many Web site publishers who
support the KidZui cause."

    The process

    To receive the KidZui Site Seal, Web sites must pass KidZui's stringent
editorial process that includes: content elimination by computer
algorithms, personal investigation by KidZui trained editors, and
categorization of content topic and age classification. One-hundred
percent of the site needs to pass the editorial process in order to
receive the KidZui Site Seal.

    When a company submits its site for approval, an email notification of the
status will be received within days. Sites that have already been
KidZui-approved can also register to add the seal to their website.

    Those wishing to display the Support Seal will also receive a prompt
response from the KidZui staff containing the necessary instructions.

    Among the first Web sites to earn KidZui's Site Seal are educational sites
www.girlschoiceinc.com and www.clicknkids.com, and entertainment sites
www.wumblers.com, www.igor-movie.com, the site of the children's movie
"IGOR," and www.spacechimpspower.com, the site of the children's movie
"Space Chimps."
