What are Webkinz?

Posted by WebKinz Fan on 30 March, 2008

webkinz, webkinz, webkinz 2008, webkinz collectionWebkinz are stuffed animals that are called “pets.”  Each pet has a secret code on its tag.  You will want to make sure that one of these unopened tags is included with your Webkinz whenever you purchase it.  This is how you will be able to get into the virtual online world.


In this virtual online world your child will be responsible for feeding and clothing their pet and for setting up a little house for them to live in.  In order to do any of these things they will have to earn Kinz Cash.  This can be earned by playing educational games such as trivia.

As a parent you may be surprised what your child learns from playing on this web site.  For instance, Webkinz has been known to help some children with their reading since you need to be able to read in order to play this game.  This is why Webkinz is actually recommended for children who are between the ages of 8 and 13.  Younger children can also play but you will have to read for them.  Older children will still be interested in playing too as there are lots of great games available for them to enjoy as well.


Clearly you can see that this is a well-rounded web site for children.  You will also be happy to know that it is also a very safe site as well.  While children are able to chat with one another, there are built-in safety precautions that allow them only to be able to say certain things and their name and where they live are not one of these things.


Webkinz really is a great toy.  For only $12 per pet you get access to all of these great things online for a full year.  Your child will definitely spend more than enough hours playing on this web site for you to be able to get back the money that you invested in this toy.  Plus, the educational value that they also get will be an extra bonus that is well worth having as a parent.
