JAKKS PACIFIC® & DISNEY OFFER TWEEN GIRLS A VIDEO GAME EXPERIENCE OF THEIR VERY OWN WITH G2: GAME GIRL™ HANNAH MONTANA™ & HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL™

High School Musical

MALIBU, CA – February 17, 2008 – JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (Nasdaq: JAKK) and Disney Consumer Products introduce G2: Game Girl™, a video game experience designed especially for tween girls. G2: Game Girl™ features the popular Disney Channel entertainment, rich graphics and sounds and tweencentric gameplay that provides girls with games that are both realistic and inspirational.

Driven by JAKKS’ proven, award-winning Plug It In & Play™ technology (compatible with any standard television, no video game console needed), G2: Game Girl™ boasts 32MB of high resolution graphics, rich sound and vivid gameplay. Infused with creative design elements from Disney artists, the sleek, stylish design of the controller and console will look cool in any tween girl’s bedroom.

But what excites girls most of all? Playing and hanging out with their favorite tween characters! With G2: Game Girl – Hannah MontanaTM Deluxe TV Game, girls can experience firsthand all the fun and drama of not-so-average teen Miley Stewart and pop sensation Hannah Montana! Live the life of Miley and Hannah and choose the perfect outfit, make the grade at school, keep it real with friends and somehow get it together to perform a sold out show…all before bedtime! The ultimate goal: Diamond® sales for your new album! The game features a fully immersive world of characters, locations, clothing and shoe options, and music from the Hannah Montana TV show.

Then, join Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, Ryan and the rest of the East High gang in G2: Game Girl™ – High School Musical™ Deluxe TV Game.

Tweens choose to play as one of their favorite characters to dance and sing their way through a series of auditions for the school musical and, ultimately, perform in the big show. The game also includes social activities, like hanging out with friends in and after school, and emailing & text messaging with one of several cool cell phones/PDAs.

With great graphics, hit tunes and gameplay that is relatable and inspirational for tweens, G2: Game Girl truly delivers. “I believe our G2: Game Girl™ Deluxe TV Games line fills a void in the tween video gaming segment,” states John Ardell, Senior Vice-President of Interactive, JAKKS Pacific, Inc. “We’ve combined the hottest entertainment brands with the newest Plug It In & Play TV Games™ technology and a cool, sleek look to appeal to the fickle tween segment. It is exciting to watch this brand continue to grow.”

The new G2: Game Girl TV Games are expected to be available in Fall 2008 for a suggested retail price of $49.99.
