Miss PattyCake Goes to Walmart!

Integrity Music today announced that Sony Wonder will provide general market distribution of the label’s Miss
PattyCake video and audio series created for preschool children.
As part of the agreement, Sony will distribute Miss PattyCake products to mainstream retail outlets including Wal-Mart, Kmart,
Target, among others. This is in addition to the Christian retail distribution currently provided by Word Distribution.

“We are thrilled that this new relationship with Sony Wonder will give the Miss PattyCake franchise broader distribution into
mainstream retail accounts via our new Sony/Epic relationship,” says Daniel McGuffey, Integrity’s chief marketing officer and senior vice

In addition to distributing previous Miss PattyCake videos and CDs/cassettes, such as the Hullabaloo Zoo video and the Good
Night World lullaby album, Sony Wonder will distribute Miss PattyCake’s latest video release, God’s Great Big World.
This particular video holds a special meaning for Miss PattyCake’s Jean Thomason as it includes footage from a trip she and her
husband took to El Salvador to witness the international development and relief work of World Vision.

“As a foundational truth,” said Thomason, “one of the things we are trying to communicate to preschoolers is you are special just
the way God made you, and that we are all the same in God’s eyes. The underlying message in this video is ‘red and yellow, black
and white, they are precious in his sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world.'”

Thomason has toured throughout the United States as Miss PattyCake and through her appearances at the national Women of
Faith arena conferences sold more than 50,000 videos in one year at these venues. Thomason also recently served as emcee of the
“2002 Children’s Pastor’s Conference,” which is sponsored by the International Network of Children’s Ministries, where she was
exposed to a targeted audience of more than 12,000 children’s ministry workers.

The character of Miss PattyCake was created through the efforts of Thomason, writer Nancy Gordon (of A Mother’s Heart
Ministries) and Integrity Music. As Miss PattyCake, Thomason teaches preschoolers educational basics such as colors, numbers and
ABC’s along with moral lessons on sharing and compassion through songs, skits and Bible stories.

“Jean is, as usual, stunningly vibrant and full of maternal fun and energy for toddlers in her new video,” said Steve Merkel, A&R
director for Integrity Music. “Part of the screenplay for God’s Great Big World includes a trip to El Salvador where Miss PattyCake visits
new friends and learns about the culture. She also makes a short appeal at the end of the video for viewers to visit her website to find
out more about sponsoring a child through World Vision. I believe this video promotes good will and understanding in our troubled
world and I can’t speak highly enough of Jean’s heart that is always present through these videos.”

Integrity Music, a subsidiary of Integrity Incorporated, is a leading producer and publisher of praise and worship music. Its
products are distributed throughout the United States and in 176 countries worldwide.
