     The Bob the Builder - Project: Build It traveling museum exhibit opens
 on June 17 at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis and will visit 30 major
 markets in North America through 2011, reaching more than 2 million
 children and families.
     "The Children's Museum is excited to create and debut Bob the Builder's
 first traveling exhibit, offering children a learning experience that
 encourages Bob the Builder's signature can-do attitude, problem solving
 skills and teamwork," said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO of The
 Children's Museum of Indianapolis. "Following the grand opening, Bob the
 Builder - Project: Build It sponsored by Delta will begin its national tour
 at The Children's Museum of Manhattan in New York and The Royal Alberta
 Museum in Edmonton, Canada, and it will visit 30 venues during the next
 five years."
     "This is a great opportunity to reach the community with important
 messages about conservation, as well as what goes into building and
 maintaining a home," said Reinhard Metzger, president of Delta Faucet
 Company. "Bob the Builder is a great partner for the Delta brand because he
 embodies the combination of a can-do attitude and concern for the
 environment that our company was built upon. We are pleased to partner with
 The Children's Museum to help educate young visitors on these ideas."
     "We are thrilled to work with The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, a
 premiere provider of exhibits that are interactive and educational for
 visitors of all ages," said Jamie Cygielman, Senior Vice President,
 Consumer Products, HIT Entertainment. "Their dedication to providing young
 children with high-quality, hands-on, educational events, makes them the
 perfect partner to bring Bob the Builder - Project: Build It to life."
     The Bob the Builder - Project: Build It traveling museum exhibit will
 invite families to spend time in Sunflower Valley with Bob the Builder,
 Wendy and the rest of the can-do crew. Children can practice their own
 fixing with kid-smart activities that build up their can-do attitudes and
 encourage them to be an active part of Bob the Builder - Project: Build It.
     Families can also work together to install new parts to sinks in Bob
 the Builder's mobile home and in his building workshop, and learn about
 water conservation, courtesy of exhibit presenter Delta Faucet Company.
