PixyKids: $3 million to Menlo Park, CA-based PixyKids--$2 million from ATA Ventures and $1 million from a choir of angel investors. The startup is hoping to become "the" social media platform for kids ages six to 12; CEO and co-founder Rajul Kadakia calls it "a cross between Facebook and Disney." ("Social Network" meets "Finding Nemo"?) The market for a kid-friendly social network is pretty crowded with the likes of Imbee, Everloop, and KidZui already on the scene, notes Gigaom.
