Never heard of them. What are they? I didn't really understand from the link you gave.

EDIT: I did a google and found this link which explains it in more depth (click on "take a tour"). It looks interesting, but it's not really up my alley.

Oh sorry, I thought the link explained it.

For those who don't know...

Webkinz are a stuffed animal made by Ganz (very cute) and they come with a code that you use on www.webkinz.com . They are a virtual reality pet. You can play games to win money to buy food/clothes/etc.

I use them as a release The games are fun, pass the time.... and the stuffed animals are adorable.

This is the one I got for V Day: http://customerservice.webkinz.com/c...ove_monkey.jpg

I've always loved stuffed animals, and still sleep with one from time to time LOL Its the one part of immaturity that I think I will have forever. I stuffed animals.

My kids love em too.

They are $13-15 for the animal with the code, which gives you access to the online world for 1yr. The local store here, they know me well so we talk. There's one older ladies (60's) who comes in once a month and buys one. It's her fun and excitement Cheaper than a movie at a good theater.

I've heard of them... thought they were cute, but I already have Neopets online... which I've had since I was 27... and now am 36... I have enough to deal with keeping them going... I swear sometimes I'm the oldest one there... I have three pets. and I swear, one time I tried 'giving one to the NP shelter' I got the guilt trip and kept her... I can't do it. Sad, no?

My son has a ton of them and plays online occasionally. We get them for him for his birthday and Christmas, and I usually pick out the ones I think are cute. Like this year I HAD to get the hedgehog b/c he was so stinkin cute and I love hedgehogs. I have never played online with them, though.

Oh yeah, I know what they are My 12 year old loves them. She has 7, and I've only bought 1 of them. She got 3 of them last year for her birthday, and was hooked.

At Christmas, she asked for one. I got her a Littlekinz. Then I got her 14 year old sister one as well- just so that there'd be no drama on Christmas morning. Now the 14 (just turned 15) year old is hooked on the site too
I got her a chickadee- cute little animal. It's even cuter online b/c it flies around it's house But she didn't ask for another one for her birthday, nor did she spend any of her birthday money on one.

They're cute- but I don't want one.

The girls used to do Neopets too. When one of the pets my youngest had got sick- such drama! Oh my- dh had to help her earn points so that she could get medicine for the pet to get better!
