Have you heard about Webkinz, the cute little plush toys that are designed for kids? If you have young children at home, then you probably already know quite a bit about these little animals that kids everywhere are falling in love with. You can choose between fish, dogs, monkeys, unicorns, dragons and more when picking out your animal. They're not very expensive and normally start somewhere between three to four dollars and run up to around twenty dollars each.
If you've tried to purchase one of these toys you will see just how popular they are. It can be difficult finding them in stock. They don't talk nor do they do anything else particularly special so what makes these plush toys so popular? The key is in the ID collar tag that contains a "secret code" that the owner uses to access Webkinz World. What is Webkinz World? Only the best online website designed especially for kids!
There are so many things for your child to do in Webkinz World and there are several places that you can visit such as the parent's area, catalog, and the eStore to name a few. You can take a tour of the website to see what it has to offer before you let your child sign up and there is a section for customer support and help if needed.
When your child first signs up for the site they are actually adopting the pet. They get to pick a name for their pet and tell if it's a boy or girl. Once the adoption is finished they will have access to their pet's room and to a cartoon version of the plush toy they have. They use the virtual setting designed by the website to interact with their special pet. Here they can enjoy hours of entertainment. There is even a meter that will monitor how hungry, happy and healthy the pet is to help teach kids how to care for their pet.
The website has an arcade with lots of fun games to play, contest to enter and so much more.
Webkinz World is a great place where kids can have fun playing with their virtual pet. However, as with any type of game, you should monitor your child's activity and computer time. It's important to make sure playing with their online webkinz is not interfering with real social activities your child needs to be healthy.
