Welcome to Webkinz World

By May 23, 2008

Follow me on:

webkinz world If you have kids under the age of 12, then you're most likely VERY familiar with the world of Webkinz, a virtual Web world built around real-life stuffed animals. These Webkinz "pets", ranging from a duck to a horse to a dog and everything in between, are cute little plush pets that come with a unique secret code that can be plugged into the Webkinz World, where your child can do all sorts of things: feed the pet, help it sleep, play games, exercise it, etc.

The Webkinz World is part of a quickly emerging phenomena for kids on the Web; one that encourages children to be part of a virtual community and helps them to navigate through situations and circumstances that can aid them in real life. I'm pretty sure that the Webkinz World is absolutely the most popular, mostly because of the cute stuffed animal angle, and also because it's considered cool to have more than one Webkinz (in our house, we trade chores for Webkinz World time).

More sites for kids

  • Free Online Games for Kids: There are a ton of exceptionally well-designed, high quality online games for kids. Here are a few that I play with my own children.
  • Yahooligans: Yahoo has done an excellent job of pulling together Yahooligans, a directory of Internet sites that are kid-friendly. As stated in their online info, "each site has been carefully checked by an experienced educator to ensure the content and links are appropriate for kids aged 7-12."
  • The Best Kids Sites on the Web: I've put together a comprehensive list of the best sites for kids online, organized by category.

I love webkinz and they are major on the internet. The virtual world is taking over. And this is what our kids will be a part of. Not what I did when I was going up. I was out side playing games. The world has change and the internet is a big part of that.

Why does my game keep stoping and not giving me my points. Then I comes back on for me to play again. I find it usually does this after the fifth or sixth level.

Lately, the site has become extremely slow, if I am able to get in at all. This is frustrating to say the least, and very bad for those of us thinking of buying more Webkinz for Christmas. If you cannot handle the current traffic, why should I buy more pets or even renew the ones I have? It’s also making me reconsider my Christmas list for 13 nieces and nephews.

Hello, I bought a little black lab puppy at the Hallmark store here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
I had no idea that Webkins had a website for
taking care of your pet and games. I cut the tag off the puppies leg and threw away. My grandson pleaded with me to try to find away to contact your company and see if there is anyway we could establish a connection for Conner and “Snowflake”.

It’s always hard to log in to webkinz world,it takes you to everything else and its getting bad when kids that did once really enjoy webkinz are finding other things to do on the computer that doesnt need to be bought.

July 19, 2010 at 6:42 am
(41) Judy says:

It’s bad for us that can’t even click on webkinz world and get to that site without going through alot of other ones that don’t take you to what you want. You can’t even get on it anymore so why buy more webkinz and support the company when we aren’t getting anything out of it. Very sad for the kids that they have to find other websites to get on that isn’t so complicated.

(42) Heather says:

I got a hamster and webkinz will not let me put the whole code in to adopt it what should I do?
