Awards and Honors - Page Eleven

We were written up in Tim Grobaty's "WWWhat's HOT" Column at PT Connect.

"Topher's Castle isn't summer camp, but it'll kill the better part of an afternoon for the
K-3rd-grade set. We, even at our advanced age, were diverted for a handful of minutes by
Topher's (he's an elementary-school student in Hawaii) collection of breakfast cereal
characters, with their little pix and bios. We were alarmed to learn that Snap!, Crackle!
and Pop! are well into their 60s, and that the Trix Rabbit is 43."
"Elsewhere in the castle, kids can click over to a Winnie the Pooh character guide,
'neat corporate sites,' such as Disney, KayBee Toys and Crayola, and gather links to such
areas of interest as Goosebumps, Godzilla, Star Wars and TV cartoons."
We were named the "Site of the Week" at Stephen's World.
"We thought that Topher's Castle Homepage was a very good homepage for kids. He has Comics,
and other Kids stuff on his site. We also thought that his page layout was excellent,
and that the colors for Links, and Vlinks were nicely picked and that they went well together.
The graphics are wonderful. Some kids homepages aren't that great, but Topher's is!
Why don't you visit it and see what Topher has for you to explore. GeoCities rated
his page so good, that they put it on the A-List."
We won the Tigger "That's T-I-double Ga-er" Award.

Mining Company Feature on Winnie-the Pooh.
Winnie the Pooh Character Guide
"A terrific site suggested by a Mining Company reader, Topher's Castle
has a really cool layout with multiple versions for different resolutions.
Each Pooh character is illustrated and described, more thoroughly than
I have seen elsewhere. Great site!"
