For those who would rather not go online to create their project and who happen to live in or near New York City, Kidlandia now also has a boutique within FAO Schwarz. While the boutique doesn't have the full range of products that the website does, you can purchase a 24x18 print there, you can take your print home that very day (and there are special FAO only items available at the boutique).
What Kidlandia is really offering is a way for children to both explore within their own imagination and, particularly when used on the website, a way for them to also figure out more about the world at large in which we live (hey, that stuff we designed on the computer here at home is connected to something larger out there somewhere).
Whether you end up creating a family tree (which didn't feel quite as in depth as we would have liked), play with a real map, or create something completely unique and different, the customization options are huge and there is a ton to explore. If your child and your neighbor's one both end up using the same basic template you're still virtually certain to get a final result which is noticeably different.
So few things in this world offer one the opportunity to be creative, have fun, and end up with a result which you're virtually guaranteed to love. Kidlandia is one of those things and a website not to be missed.
