doraI just found another reason to love spending time at the legendary FAO Schwarz Fifth Avenue store. This week I met Brian Backus, Founder and CEO of Kidlandia. This past March, the Kidlandia(r) Personalization Boutique was launched at FAO Schwarz in New York City.

Once you meet Brian, you want to jump in and make your very own personalized products from Kidlandia(r). I had the opportunity to do this and the results are priceless. Brian knew exactly what he was doing when he founded Kidlandia.com in 2008. What better way to get parents and kids to imagine, create, and rule their own kingdom of fun and adventure. The kingdom that each child creates on Kidlandia(r) can be filled with whimsical creatures, as well as real-life family and friends.

Creating a Kidlandia(r) Kingdom is easy and fun – kids and parents simply choose a product and theme, then personalize their design. The customized designs can be purchased on a variety of products including posters, t-shirts, gallery wrapped canvases, canvas scrolls, door-hangers, growth charts, placemats, puzzles, mouse pads, magnets and more. Kidlandia(r) provides the most sophisticated personalization in the market today, capturing memories that last a lifetime. Additionally, the company has instated The Kidlandia Kids and Kreechurs Foundation, a charitable foundation aiding kids at home, at school and at play; 2.5% of Kidlandia stock has been set aside for charities under the foundation umbrella.
