Webkinz JR. – CLOSED

If any of you have children, I am sure you have heard of Webkinz.  These cute little plush toys come with a code that can be entered into the Webkinz website, and your kids can take care of their cat, dog, unicorn (or whatever toy/pet), online as well as real life.  For those of you that don’t know, Webkinz are a very successful product, you can find two or three (if not more), in anyone’s house that has children older than 5 or 6.  Webkinz is now expanding their line to be more appealing to the younger bunch.  Webkinz Jr. is the same concept as the original Webkinz, but the plush toy is bigger and the website is more simple for preschoolers (suggested ages 3 – 6) to use.

I received a Monkey Webkinz Jr. for review.  The first thing I noticed about the Webkinz Jr. is that is was much larger than the original.  My daughter loves hanging onto her large soft plush monkey, she carries him around the house and says “eee – eee – eee”, like a monkey.

Now, my daughter is still too young to use the computer on her own, but I am sure she will be learning sooner rather than later.  A few years ago, before there were many websites for  young kids, I recall my cousin’s 3 year old using You Tube to search for Teletubbies videos.  I was absolutely amazed at how well she could use the computer, but wasn’t sure if You Tube was the best option for her.  Now with something like Webkinz Jr. children can learn important computer skills on a website that is child friendly, so there is no need for parents to worry what their children could stumble upon on the internet.

The Webkinz Jr. websites allows children to take care of their virtual pet to make sure they are happy, and within the community children can learn and play (and probably not even know that they are learning things).  They can have fun learning about numbers, reading, and expanding their computers skills at the same time. Parents you can make the online world age appropriate for your kids depending on their learning stage.  As your children get older, you can increase the learning levels.

I think it’s great for young kids to have a safe online environment that will teach them computer skills.  I also like that there is no need for parents to worry about what their kids are doing on the Webkinz Jr. website.

  6. I love the idea of Webkinz Jr. I’ve never seen them before, and I think my children would love having their own virtual pet!

  7. I think my son would like the Orange Kitty 🙂 I think the online part would be great for young kids.

  8. I love the giraffe, and that it is for ages 3-6 my 3 year old would love to play with her sister on webkinz, but it is just too hard, this would be great for her.

  9. Oooh, my cousin LOVES Webkinz and this would be an amazing present for him! Visited the site, but since I already know wayyy too much about how you register them, play with them, buy them stuff, not much new for me to learn!

  10. The giraffe is so cute! The fact that kids can register their Webkinz Jr. and interact on the site makes these animals unique.

  11. I saw that kids can play games and learn at the same time. It seems very educational and could possibly help the younger ones advance earlier. I think that’s great. Thanks.

  12. I saw a store locator on their site… the nearest store selling their products is: THE GALLERY,
    ALFRED NY

  13. The animals look soft and adorable! The site where you can
    adopt your pet and play games. Great idea…..Thanks, Cindi

  14. I like the recipe section that rates the recipes from 1 to 3 stars depending on the difficult.

  15. I just learned that Webkinz Jr. pets are lovable plush animals that each come with a unique Pet Code and the entire site is for younger kids.

  16. I learned there are alot of Webkinz! My daughter would love this and looks like I need to get on the ball with her collection. Thanks!

  17. I love the array of pets they have to offer and I expect that it will grow pretty quickly! How cute! I love that they have an elephant. My daughter LOVES elephants!

  18. I viewed the catalogue of the webkinz jr. and found a tan puppy that looks like my dog Junior. The kids will love it.

  19. I learned that this will teach young children responsibility while having fun and learning. The pets respond to what you do with different emotions.

  20. the Webkingz site has a Take A Tour which is very helpful in understanding this product and also a site for parents.

  21. I saw and liked that the parents can control the level of play and get a progress report on the “games” the kids are learning from!! I know a litle girl who would LOVE that monkey and a little boy who is thirsting for the knowledge these games could provide :o)
