Superstores Discuss 2014 Distribution of The One World Doll Project's Prettie Girls

One World Holdings Anticipates Imminent Roll-Out Into Big-Box Store Chains

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/14 -- One World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OWOO) ("One World") announced today that its subsidiary, The One World Doll Project, has engaged in a series of discussions with several big-box superstores, to secure major distribution across the country for The Prettie Girls!™ multi-cultural dolls.

"This is a very exciting time for One World," stated Joanne Melton, CEO of One World Holdings. "A number of very lucrative opportunities have opened up for us with several big-box store chains since the Toy Fair 2014. What is most extraordinary however, is the speed in which a few of these superstore chains are encouraging us to roll-out The Prettie Girls!™ product line. We could very well secure deals with at least one, if not two, major U.S. store chains before the end of this second quarter."

Big-Box stores, a.k.a superstores or megastores, are physically large retail chains, generally comprised of hundreds of store locations in either a particular geographic region, or spanning a country. Management has suggested that while 'category killers' like Toys "R" US, Inc., are normally the "holy grail" for children's toys, The Prettie Girls!™ offer a unique perspective and play experience for children; something that isolating the doll line to a singular store type could limit.

Ms. Melton continued, "Our founder, Trent T. Daniel, has a broader vision for One World and The One World Doll Project. Therefore, we are in talks with buyers from toy retailers, to warehouse club stores, to regional and national hypermarkets. Our ambition is not to simply sell millions of dolls, but to touch the lives of a million little hearts. Luckily, we have been fortunate enough to find that many of the chain stores we are currently in discussions with, support this endeavor and share in this vision."

As Ms. Melton mentioned in yesterday's release regarding One World's relationship with major online retailer Wayfair LLC (Wayfair.com), she expects to see demand from major retail chains grow considerably over the next two quarters. Management is firmly confident that One World's first superstore roll-out is imminently on the horizon.
