THE SYMBOL OF HANDS

The human hand is a symbol for many things, not the least of which are unity and support. You're On! Inc., a Fort Worth-based company, understands the importance of such symbolism to today's world, and has recently announced the release of the first four in a new line of child-friendly toys called People Holding Hands.

The 12-inch pellet and fiber-filled "little people" are not only designed to hold each other's hands, but to represent racial uniqueness: "Trace" is an Anglo-American boy; "Gail" an African-American girl; "Jessie" an Hispanic American boy; and "Connie" an Asian American girl. Each little person connects to another with hook and loop fabric, while an embroidered name pocket on the back of each figure can be used to hold each little person's own "story", which can be accessed by visiting www.PeopleHoldingHands.com. A portion of the profits from each sale will be donated at the end of each calendar year to selected humanitarian organizations. Four new "little people" will be added to the collection three times a year. The suggested retail price for each doll is about $9 ($36 for the full set). For more information, go to www.PeopleHoldingHands.com or call (817) 927-8565
