After being listed by Chart Track as the top selling Children's PC CD-ROM title for the year 2000, the title continues to dominate the charts, not dropping out of the top three in 55 weeks as children remain spellbound by the Tweenies phenomenon.

Drew Kaza, Managing Director of Internet and Interactive, comments: "The fact that Tweenies - Ready to Play is still at number one in the charts more than a year after its initial release is a staggering success story. It's testimony to the place the Tweenies holds in the hearts of our youth. The title beautifully combines those elements that make a successful children's title and extend their enjoyment of the Tweenies brand. We're looking forward to its continued success and achieving additional acclaim with our new PlayStation Tweenies product."
