Nick Launches New Sites

Nickelodeon’s online division today launched two new web sites as part of the Dot Kids Act, established in 2002 to ensure safe spaces on the Internet for children under 13. The new web destinations, www.nick.kids.us for kids and www.nickjr.kids.us for parents and preschoolers, join existing sites www.nick.com and www.nickjr.com, and promise to offer viewers more opportunities to interact with their favorite animated and live-action TV characters.

Visitors of www.nick.kids.us can play such games as SpongeBob’s Jellyfish Shuffleboard, SpongeBob SquarePants B.C. Bowling, The Fairly OddParents Big Superhero Wish Game and My Life as a Teenage Robot Techno Tennis.

Over on www.nickjr.kids.us, fans can check out Max & Ruby Toy Bowling Game, Dora’s Star Catching Game, Blue’s Matching Game Oswald’s Big Diner Specials Game and Little Bill’s Captain Brainstorm’s Adventure. Also included are Dora’s Super Silly Costume Maker and online storybooks based on the shows Blue’s Clues, Max & Ruby and Dora the Explorer.

In creating the new sites, Nickelodeon Online worked closely with NeuStar, Inc., the company responsible for developing, implementing and operating the kids.us Internet address, which is open to all consumers, businesses, educators, government agencies and organizations with a U.S. presence to register Internet addresses and establish websites.
