Wild about Webkinz!

We have fallen victim to the latest children's craze: Webkinz. If you haven't heard of Webkinz they are cute little stuffed animals. Each animal comes with a special code and if you go to the webkinz website you can adopt your animal and take care of it online. You can then earn kinzcash to take care of your pet. You earn cash by playing games at the arcade or doing jobs at the employment office. You can buy food, clothes, furniture, additional rooms, etc. And if you have friends that have webkinz you can visit each other and even send them gifts and mail. The girls are having a blast taking care of their pets and it has been a great rainy day activity. We are also in the process of making a house for the stuffed animals as the girls enjoy playing with the actual stuffed animals also. I will post a picture when we finish 'decorating' it. There are also trading cards to collect. In each set of trading cards you get codes to get stuff for your webkinz. The only downside has been convincing the girls that they don't need to own every webkin ever made!
Here are the cute little critters themselves.

Becca has a lion, a tiger and a bunny. Kenzie has a white terrier, an alley cat and a chihuahua.
And.... well....the panda is mine. Yeah I'm hooked too but I only have far.....Hey moms gotta play too!

Very cute, haven't seen those yet out here, but we haven't been out shopping much in the last month or so.. sounds like fun. K has a computer game with the same concept but no related stuffies to squeeze.
Have fun!
