Olsen Twins Spin Old CDs, New Fashions

04/04/2003 at 10:00 AM EST

While Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen prepare to take their SATS, Sony's Columbia Records is spreading around their greatest hits.

The label has reissued 10 CDs originally recorded by the 16-year-old twin moguls -- who first became famous with their childhood roles on the sitcom "Full House" -- when they were aged 6 to 12.

This worldwide deal allows the CDs to reach many foreign territories for the first time, a spokesman for the twins' company, Dualstar Entertainment Group, tells Reuters. The girls also are weighing several other offers from major music labels to produce new music.

Nine of their CDs, including "Brother for Sale" and the really hot "You're Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley's Sleepover Party," were released on April 1 in North America. A Christmas title is also in the works.

No financial terms were disclosed.

In Mary-Kate and Ashley news, on Saturday they are expected to unveil their spring/summer fashion line via satellite in Wal-Mart's 2,800 stores across America.

The closed-circuit TV fashion show, aimed at dressing toddlers and "'tween" girls ages 6 to 14, is expected to last half an hour, and (letting one secret out of the bag early) the spring line is heavy on pastels, according to Judy Swartz, Dualstar's vice president of fashion.
