What the Webkinz are they?

No primary category set

If you’ve not heard of them you’re not alone, but chances are you soon will if you have children! They’re the latest craze fuelled by the Webkinz website. It’s a cross between Beanie Babies and Neopets – you can buy your Webkinz and then watch it come to life on the Webkinz website, as well as interacting with other kids Webkinz.

Each Webkinz comes with a secret code and when you enter the code into the Webkinz site your toy is activated online. From then your pet gets a house that you can decorate and extend, adding toys, rooms and a garden. You can cook your pet a meal in an online kitchen, play games, watch TV and play in an online swimming pool or on a trampoline.

Of course there’s only one problem, all the shops are pretty much selling out as soon as they get stock. Not to worry, there is of course one place you’re guaranteed to be able to buy Webkinz – on eBay! Only problem is of course they’re selling for way over the normal retail price.

  1. I was writing a new article for my blog the other day about sourcing products and I was looking at popular searches.

    I noticed Webkinz at the top of the list in popularity, and I had no idea what they were! I had to go and look them up!

    Already it seems a lot of people are cashing in on the fad.
