Doug Dohring made a bundle selling a Website called Neopets that let young kids earn make-believe money by playing online games. Now he plans to reward them for studying math and reading.

Dohring's new venture, Age of Learning Inc., plans to launch a Web site called ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy designed to teach basic reading, math, science and other subjects to children between the ages of two and six. In some ways, the site is a big departure from Neopets, which Dohring sold to Viacom Inc. in 2005 for $160 million.
