Kidlandia hits FAO

Kidlandia's Manhattan available exclusively at FAO

I’ve got a thing for maps, anyone remember my deep love for LeapFrog’s TAG map…  As a toy, I find so many ways to turn one into an educational tool.  I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to see when I checked out Kidlandia, but I fell in love!

Founded in 2008 by illustrator Brian Backus, Kidlandia helps kids and parents create personalized kingdoms of their very own. I had a chance to meet and chat with Brian and his products are not just whimsical but in time I can definitely see them becoming heirlooms.

Haute toy store FAO Schwarz just opened their Kidlandia Personalization Boutique on their lower level. Utilizing HP’s printing technology, Kidlandia now has its own kiosk where customers can now create and print their own kingdom, whether real or whimsical, in-store. The Kidlandia Personalization Boutique features 24×18 inch fine art prints including the Kidlandia Patchwork USA Map, Kidlandia Whimsical World Map, Family Trees, Kidlandia Kreechur Kingdoms.  My personal favorite is the FAO Schwarz exclusive keepsake map of Manhattan.  I had so much fun making one for my littlest one.  I added fun little details like where mommy goes to school, where daddy works and where his great-grandparents live.  I loved the beautiful details and colors and was so impressed with the quality of the print.  It certainly isn’t cringe-inducing in my book, I’ll even venture to say they are a piece of art and will proudly hang in his nursery.  I hope one day we’ll be tracking his stomp around the city in a very special way with Kidlandia.

They have even partnered with some of our favorite brands like Disney Princess, Winnie the Pooh as well as Dora the Explorer, and SpongeBob SquarePants to create one of a kind maps with your children’s favorite characters.  While I’m a purist at heart, I can definitely see the appeal and I can see my daughter going ga-ga over the Princesses and Dora.  They are all available at the FAO Schwarz Kidlandia Boutique for approximately $39.99.

Kidlandia maps are a wonderful treasure that can leave a lasting memory for a lifetime and beyond. To learn more about Kidlandia and their extensive line of personalized products, visit them online at www.kidlandia.com

    What a cute map! Do they have other cities?

    I’ve seen similar maps but this is so reasonably prices. I would have to see the quality of paper in person though.

    I’m not too sure about the weird animals but I would totally get it if they have a Yankee Stadium icon ;)
