Dizzywood.com Provides Kids the Opportunity to Explore Extraordinary Worlds and Complete Challenging Games and Activities That Foster Teamwork, Imagination and Cognitive Development

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 8, 2007) - Whether it's a visit to a Mayan-themed jungle or a vast underground cavern, Dizzywood.com offers kids ages 8-12 the opportunity to explore and discover new worlds and environments unlike any other. Each adventure encourages children to use their imagination, cooperate with others, and develop cognitive skills in a setting that is safe, interactive and fun.

Dizzywood is a safe online environment for children. All interaction between players is strictly automated through safeguard technology filters and live moderators, which helps prevent personal identity and inappropriate content/language from being shared. Dizzywood is also COPPA compliant and free of advertising and external links to the Web.

"There are so many websites for kids, but we felt young people today deserved better," said Scott Arpajian, Dizzywood co-founder. "We wanted to create an environment that would open up kids' imaginations and inspire them to create. As a parent of young children myself, safety was also a concern, so we have integrated advanced filtering technology with live moderators that provide for a safe online environment."

Dizzywood is free to use. Paid subscriptions will be available in the future to access premium content.
