Newport Beach, Calif.--October 25, 2005--Crave Entertainment, a leading publisher of console videogames, today announced that Sky Dancers for the GGame BoyÂ® Advance handheld video game system has shipped to retailers throughout North America. Sky Dancers quickly became the #1 girls' toy around the world when first introduced in 1994, and was featured in McDonald's Happy Meals and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Young adventurers can now fly off on an exciting journey with Angelica, Camille and Jade!

The game features collectible in-game Sky Dancers costumes and hair accessories that may be traded via the Game Link cable, five unique levels of play, and three mini games: "Angelica's Perfect Aim," "Jade's Sky Slalom," and "Camille's Treasure Hunt."
Sky Dancers are back with a whole new look and attitude and flying higher than ever before! Over 20 million original Sky Dancers sold worldwide, and
rocketed to the top of the Toy Book "What's Hot" list. The brand relaunches in 2005 with a master toy introduction from Play Along, makers of the
