Watch out Club Penguin

The dinosaurs are coming and they are getting ready to take over.

A new website called DinoSawUs is looking set to take a bite out of the lucrative children's computer game market.

Inspired by Club Penguin, a virtual Arctic world for children filled with penguin pals, DinoSawUs creator, Custard Square, has tapped into that fascination many children have with dinosaurs.

"Kids just love dinosaurs. They love that they're from another world. It's almost like make-believe - except it really did exist," says Anna Lee, Custard Squares Design Director.

Custard Square has come up with a virtual prehistoric game world for kids full of dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus.

Aimed at children aged five to eleven-years-old, DinoSawUs takes the virtual world idea a step further than Club Penguin.

"We saw this as the perfect opportunity to introduce children to the wonderful world of dinosaurs, so as well as the games, there is a lot of educational material on DinoSawUs. They can learn what Triceratops ate and why a Gigantosaurus couldn't get up again if it fell over." says Michelle Archer, Custard Squares Chief Editor.

The website also has a strong conservation message running through it with a newspaper for the children containing conservation news and tips every week.

"We want the kids to have fun with DinoSawUs but we also think websites like ours can do a lot more. We hope the children will enjoy learning this way." Say Michelle

About DinoSawUs:
DinoSawUs is a fun and educational website aimed at children aged five to ten-years-old. The children adopt a dinosaur, play games with it in a dinosaur valley and learn to look after it like a pet. They can also learn about the world of the dinosaurs through the education centre and keep up-to-date with conservation issues through the DinoSawUs Daily newspaper.
