HOUSTON, Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One World Holdings (OTCBB:OWOO),
parent company to The One World Doll Project, Inc. announced today that it has
completed the process of taking the company public and that FINRA has

Joanne Melton, CEO. "As a public company we expect to make big steps forward

line, to a market that we believe has been waiting for high quality dolls to
represent true racial and ethnic diversity," she added.
About The One World Doll Project
In her 15 years at Mattel™, Stacey McBride-Irby designed and created countless
fashions and concepts for the iconic Barbie® line. Most notably, Stacey
created an entire new line for the company, the So In Style™ dolls, the first
African-American Barbie dolls by Mattel which, according to Stacey, "more
closely represented contemporary girls and young women in the diverse and
dynamic urban community". Now she is using her love of doll making and design
to create dolls with The One World Doll Project, Inc.
The One World Doll Project has developed an exciting line of multi-cultural
and fashion dolls that it expects will have a major impact in the months
ahead. The Prettie Girls! OWP doll line is unique in the way they look, their
backgrounds and their stories that capture the essence of what every little
girl can embrace and relate to. The Prettie Girls! Ms. McBride-Irby, along
with the One World Doll Project, believes that little girls and their mothers
are looking for images of beauty and fashion that mirror the same colors,
shapes and physical characteristics that they themselves possess.
The overall vision of the company is to introduce a new way mainstream dolls
are designed, marketed and integrated into the fabric of America. The One
World Doll Project's core mission is to make one of the most significant,
positive cultural impacts on play and in the doll category in recent history.
