Cupid's Arrows Point to KBkids.com for Valentine's Day Toys Kids Will Love

Enhanced Website Makes Shopping to Your Heart's Desire Even Faster and Easier

DENVER, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- KBkids.com (www.kbkids.com), today announced fun and easy ways for giftgivers to warm the hearts of children this Valentine's Day. With updated search capabilities and an enhanced specialty toy section, introduced just in time for the holiday, it's easier than ever for customers to find the right gift for the children in their lives. Now shoppers can search for a toy and then sort the results alphabetically, by best sellers and cost -- a search capability no other online toy retailer offers. Shoppers can check out the new search feature by browsing in KBkids.com's newly expanded Specialty Toys area. Here they can find toys that entertain and educate from new specialty vendors including Madame Alexander, Chicco and Neurosmith.

``Toys are always a popular gift on Valentine's Day because they remind children of the giver all year long,'' said Founder and CEO Srikant Srinivasan. He stressed that despite the busy E-Holiday '99 season, the company didn't pause in its quest to continually exceed customers' expectations by making each shopping experience better than the last.

``We're thrilled that in just five months we're already the number three online toy retailer. We've only just begun our journey to offer our customers the ultimate shopping destination for children's products on the Web.
