Hello. My name is Kim, and I’m addicted to Webkinz.
My nephew, Robert, got for Ross, a little golden retriever Webkinz for Christmas…and I love him for it!…because I’ve been playing with it for hours now…I know, I know, that’s ridiculous, but it’s actually true.
I’ve never understood what the deal is with the WK craze, but I get it now. Good grief, if I like it so much now, I can’t imagine if I were 8! You get to play games to "earn WK money", so that you can dec out the dog’s room with cool flooring, wallpaper, a flat screen TV (everything I want to do in real life, but can’t afford to!). You can buy him food and clothes (cute clothes!) and fun stuff to play with. You can add to his little apartment, like an outside area with a garden…it’s fantastic!
So I’ve lived my life vicariously through Buddy, the dog, for the last couple of hours, and while that’s kind of odd…it was great to feel like a kid again:)
