We Got Joy one a couple weeks ago. What was life like BEFORE Webkinz??
It is wild. Joy feeds her "pinky" pony, exercise her (bought her a treadmill), and talks and plays.
She loved it SOO much..Helena HAD to get one. They can communicate through premade phrases, send each other email etc.
THEN: a girl at school got one.
Part of me is (the ex fundy part I think) like..WHOA...what a perfect set up for future gamblers--kids earn $$ that they then can spend on their pet. Play Games, earn money, buy stuff. WOW..sounds like a blast.
