My neice first introduced my daughter and I to the world of Webkinz. My sister was playing it all the time and she was the grown up. She told me how addicting the game was and she was right.
I set out to buy my daughter a Webkinz at a decent price. It turns out that you have to buy a stuffed animal Webkinz in order to get a code to use online. This code gives you the same Webkinz, but a virtual one. What I loved about the online version was my daughter got to learn how to take care of a pet without actually having one. She had to feed it, love it, take it to the doctors, and even get a job to earn money for its needs. We found a great one at Ebay.
Not only was my daughter attracted to the online Webkinz, but she loves the stuffed animal Webkinz as well. She dresses it up and carries it around the house. These Webkinz truly rule both the online world and the real one.
