Webkinz Revolution...

webkinz_penguin_avatar.jpgI have been meaning to blog about Webkinz ever since I received one as a gift for Christmas this year from my good friend Kaylee. For those of you readers that don't know the premise behind Webkinz creatures is similar to that of a Tamagotchi (bloggers my age [22] may remember having these in middle school along with their subsequent banning from middle school). I think Wikipedia gives the best definition of Webkinz:

"Each Webkinz stuffed animal and Webkinz accessory comes with an 8-character code. By registering this code on the Webkinz website, you "adopt" this pet in the virtual Webkinz World. Without the Secret Code, the user may not get access to the Webkinz world.

The Webkins World is an online play area with its own economy. The user receives money (called KinzCash) by adopting new pets, playing online games, answering general knowledge questions, and through daily activities like clicking "I love my Webkinz!", spinning the Wheel of WOW, playing Wishing Well 2, or completing jobs (minigames) available once every 8 hours.

Each day, there is a Game of the Day which can be played for bonus KinzCash, and other bonuses are available each hour, full days on weekends and afternoons only on weekdays. With each Webkinz toy purchased, more money, rooms, and items are added to the user's account."

As I mentioned before I received a Webkinz stuffed pet for Christmas and since "adopting" my pet penguin in January his world has grown immensely. My penguin has what I like to call a Webkinz mansion. His home floor plan is pictured in the screen shot below.

He has a yard, garden, guest bedroom, bedroom, game room, bathroom, lounge and a party room. I guess I should note that each of these rooms costs $1,000 KinzCash and then you have to buy all the accessories for each room. My pets lounge also doubles as a kitchen in order to save space.
