Webkinz Stuffed Animals
My family has adopted 4 webkinz, with more on the way! We own (my kids & me) two frogs (bullfrog & regular frog), the elephant, & the white poodle. My daughter first got one as a birthday gift, and my son quickly had to have his! I like the variety of animals that Webkinz has, it makes it fun and people are more likely to get their favorite animals (my son=elephant, the frogs are mine!)
I like the website, very kid friendly and cute! My 7 yr old does it pretty much by herself, my 4yr old son needs my help about half the time. There are fun games to play, and earn money to buy your animals things. I often go play for a break everyday and provide our webkinz with some extra allowance!
The basic info about Webkinz is this: you pick a stuffed animal, available from various store, we got ours from Hallmark. On the tag of your animal is a “secret” code> this is actually important> don’t buy one if there is no tag! Go home, enter your tag code and set up your account. Once set up, you meet Ms. Birdy, your adoption guide. She takes you through the beinning steps. You get some money and info about your pet, such as their fave food. Name your pet, and start setting up their house. There are all sorts of cute deigns and decorations, furniture, toys for your animal. You can add to your collections, and your pets will share their home with their adoptive broth/sister. You do need to check in on your pet to care for it online, otherwise they get sick. But don’t worry, a quick trip to Dr. Quack will fix them up!
I think this is a cute idea! My kids like caring for their pets online and playing games. Decorating their pets’ homes and shopping for new things is fun, I will admit, for me too! Just make sure to play games to help add to the piggy bank. There are really nice games for everyone, I definitely enjoy stopping in for a quick game break! The only warning: the kids will kick you off your computer to play!!!
