Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2008
Crocodiles not Waterlilies Entertainment™ has selected the new digital media platform kidthing (http://www.kidthing.com) to debut RINDIN the Puffer™ exclusive animated short video and read-along digital book. RINDIN is available as both a downloadable video and read-along book at kidthing - the safe digital media platform for kids and families. Future titles from CrocPond™ are also coming soon for release at kidthing.
kidthing's digital media platform gives children the freedom to explore on the computer without being exposed to the dangers of the Internet. While kidthing is connected to the Internet, it is not a web browser so kids can't leave the world of kidthing and end up going online. After downloading the free kidthing player, parents and teachers simply browse, preview and purchase rich digital content at the kidthing store, which automatically downloads and can be played without being connected to the Internet. The purchased content resides on the computer and, if downloaded to a laptop, is a convenient, portable entertainment and education option for kids and families on the go.
Endorsed by Dr. Toy, with partners like the Humane Society of the United States, CrocPond's RINDIN the Puffer shows the importance of "being yourself" while respecting the individual differences of others. RINDIN is the first title in the CrocPond family of products. The RINDIN and CrocPond characters were created by Roger Anthony and are being animated by the award-winning director, Len Simon, along with his team at FatCat Animation. Simon has been involved with the production of more than 15 top animated feature films including 'Anastasia', 'Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron', 'Curious George', and 'All Dogs Go to Heaven'.
Nicholas Zaldastani, CEO of CNW Entertainment, said, "kidthing is the right place to present CrocPond's RINDIN the Puffer and other CrocPond titles.

According to Simon, "kidthing has allowed us to share our passion for classical animation and the children's programming we produce. The kidthing player is the perfect place to showcase the diversity of our products."
Don Levy, kidthing's president, strategic business, added, "RINDIN is a rich and wonderful story and we're honored that kidthing has been selected for the exclusive debut of such a beautifully animated video. The read- along book and free coloring pages make for a great trans-media experience for kidthing's community of kids and classrooms."
A growing number of titles from top publishing and media companies are available at the online kidthing store including Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Penguin Young Readers Group, Charlesbridge Publishing among many others.
