Webkinz Jr. ~ Blue Puppy is the new Lovey in Our House ~ Review/Giveaway


I have Webkinz, lots of them actually. I challenge anyone to beat my high score at Goober's Lab.  Quizzy's Word Challenge and Cash Cow are two other games where nobody can touch my high scores.... Uh, yes I'm the mom but seriously, my Webkinz all have seriously sweet pads, decked out with swimming pools and the finest decor available.  Will and Henry have several Webkinz but Kat is only 4 and the online Webkinz world was just a tad to old for her.  This is no longer the case, though!  We are LOVIN' Webkinz Jr. for kids ages 3-6 years old!




Thanks to Ganz, Kat received the blue puppy - whose name is **wait for it** Blue Puppy!  This plush guy hasn't left her side since it arrived a few weeks ago.  He was there for the holiday excitement, traveled to the mountains, and goes to bed with her every night.  I love how soft he is and he is quite a bit bigger than the original Webkinz so he's become the companion cuddly in our house.





The Webkinz Jr. site is geared towards younger children and includes a parents area with account settings and skill level controls.  The virtual world includes a cute little classroom with a music center, sharing circle and other familiar preschool centers.  The activities are all centered around learning shapes, numbers letters, etc.  Signing in was simple and within minutes Kat was able to navigate the site all by herself. 


At $24.95 it might be a little more expensive than your average cuddly plush animal but the website membership more than makes up the difference.


The great folks at Ganz are giving one lucky BB reader the chance to win a Webkinz Jr. of their own!  To enter simply visit the Webkinz Jr. catalogue and then come back and tell us which plush you would purchase and why!
Giveaway CLOSED ~ CONGRATULATIONS to @vhubler!!

    We love Webkinz! My guys got oodles from Christmas. We love Cash Cow too and also gem hunt. I know it sounds sad, but there is something satisfying about going down into the mines and bringing out some bling.

    Why didn't we think of Webkinz?

    Don't you just love the creativity children use when naming their stuffies?! Princess has Pink Dog, Black Poodle and White Tan. When she was younger they were even more interesting...Ear (a zebra), Foor (a teddy bear), Neck (a giraffe), etc. LOL!

    I originally bought 2 webkinz. One for my grandson and one for me. It was a birthday present for him that I thought we could enjoy together. He never really got into it, but I ended up with a couple of the things. I had gotten out of the habit of playing with them every day, and was going to let my subscription lapse, but my husband surprised me with a reindeer webkinz for Christmas... just 10 days before my subscription would have been up. I was surprised that he had payed enough attention to know that. LOL!

    If anyone has a younger child they want to introduce to the computer, I think these are excellent, just be careful or you'll spend more time playing with them than the child! ;)

    I would select the grey elephant. This is because when I was a little girl my favorite stuffed animal was a steiff elephant. He was very loved, and I still have him 34 years later. I would love for my little one to have his own favorite elephant also.
