A few years ago the craze was Beanie Babies, today it is Webkinz. In the past it was the virtual pets, today it is Webkinz. Why? It is because Webkinz are able to combine the best of both worlds: a soft pet that you can hug as well as play with online in its own little virtual world.
Webkinz pets are plush pets that come with a special code that allows you access to the Webkinz web site. On this site you will be able to play a wide variety of virtual games with your pet. The online account that you create is only good for 1 year though. After that you will have to adopt another pet in order to renew your account for another year.
So, if you want to get in on this Webkinz craze, you will first have to purchase 1 of these pets. You may want to visit webkinz.com first though to see what the pet of the month is. This is because you will then get extra surprises and you will also get extra activities to do each day. While you are at the web site you will also be able to find where you can purchase your Webkinz at.
Once you purchase your pet you will need to name him and go through the adoption process to get 2,000 Kinz Cash and 1 room. (Each time that you adopt an additional pet you will get an additional room.) You also get to decorate each room that you purchase.
After you are done with the adoption process you are ready to start earning some Kinz Cash. In order to earn Kinz Cash you will need to play games in the arcade or tournament arena, do jobs at the employment office or hunt for gems to sell. Check this post to see by which ways you can easily earn big Kinz Cash!
While you are doing all of these other fun things you also need to take care of your pet. You will need to purchase food to feed your pet in order to keep the hunger meter full. There will also be times whenever your pet gets sick and you will have to take them to the doctor.
Here is a little menu for your webkinz with most standard products you can purchase. There are also more luxery products like cake and special drinks.
