Kidlandia™ Partners With Nickelodeon Consumer Products

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2010) -  Kidlandia, a social merchandise company dedicated to inspiring childrens' imaginations, has partnered with Nickelodeon Consumer Products (NCP) to create personalized maps, canvas art, scrolls and puzzles featuring Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants. Kidlandia products encourage a positive self-image and child development by providing them with a safe kingdom of their own to create and explore.

"Every child is enthusiastic about being the ruler of their very own kingdom, with places named after a parent, brother, or best friend," said Brian Backus, Kidlandia CEO and Founder. "Kidlandia provides a personalized and safe way for parents and children to spend quality time online together, learning about and recording their own family stories in a kid-friendly way that then becomes a legacy custom gift. I wish my grandmother had one!"

The partnership between Kidlandia and NCP provides children endless possibilities for creativity and story telling. Using characters they know and love, Kidlandia's personalized Dora and SpongeBob maps inspire deep connection and play, making kids a part of stories they already enjoy.
