Regular TechCrunch readers may remember Kidlandia, the awesome site that lets you create your own personalized fantasy maps for your kids. Choose one of Kidlandia’s pre-designed map layouts, and you can customize it with various mythical characters, your child’s name, and whatever else suits your fancy. Thing is, it can be tough for kid-friendly companies like this to really reach their target audience without a presence in retail stores. But soon, Kidlandia will be getting just that: the company has forged a deal with Pottery Barn Kids, which will soon feature the maps in its catalog, its website, and its retail stores.
Maps will be a bit more limited than they are on the main Kidlandia site — you’ll only be able to choose from a fairy-themed map or a pirate map, but you’ll still be able to customize it will up to 25 different names. Maps will sell for around $130 each and are 27×35 inches on material designed to last “up to 200 years”. You’ll have to wait until late fall if you want to get your map through Pottery Barn, but if you’re looking to grab one now you can still get it through the main Kidlandia site.
Alongside today’s news, the site is launching a revamped homepage, and is also adding support for Zazzle products — you’ll now be able to get portions of your custom map printed on mugs, T-shirts, and other items.
