Webkinz Jr. Review & Giveaway

Ganz, the makers of Webkinz recently released {April 2009} a new addition to their Webkinz line, Webkinz Jr. 

Webkinz Jr. has the same function as Webkinz, just geared for a younger audience {ages 3-6}.  Webkinz Jr’s. are plush toys with an attached “code” which gives the Webkinz Jr. owner access to a virtual world.  This virtual world is found at www.webkinzjr.com.  Here,  after unlocking the content with the code which comes with their toy, they care for their pet, play games and learn to navigate around the virtual world in a safe environment.

My older children have been long time fans of Webkinz, and my younger children have often asked to play as well, but just couldn’t as the content is too advanced for them.  I was thrilled when I learned about Webkinz Jr. because now my twins can play Webkinz at an age appropriate level.  As I mentioned earlier, the content in the virtual world is geared towards 3 to 6 year olds, and the actual plush dolls are larger than regular Webkinz, as one would expect for a smaller child.

My twins LOVE playing Webkinz Jr., and are most successful playing on a computer with a mouse, although they won’t turn down a chance to play on the lap top, too.  The actual plush doll is super soft and well made. 

I highly recommend Webkinz Jr. as an affordable and appropriate gift.  With each Webkinz Jr. purchase, the child gets an actual toy, plus access to the virtual Webkinz Jr. World.  Parents have the ability to set their child’s skill levels and manage the account within their login area.  For an additional fee, a deluxe membership is available which sends detailed reports about the child’s progress, and includes more games. 

Ganz would like to give one of you a Webkinz Jr., too.

In order to qualify, simply comment on this post letting me know you are interested.

For an extra entries, consider adding me to your Networked Blogs or Google Friend Connect, subscribe to my blog, update your reader with my new URL, or retweet .  You’ll find the lonely widget that is dying to be filled with Networked Blog followers in my right side bar at the very bottom.

Contest ends on January 14th at 11:59 PM PDT and is only open to those residing in the US or Canada.

Disclosure:  I was provided with a Webkinz Jr. for review.

    My daughter would love this. She just turned five and is always wanting something to do on the computer. She is taking computer classes at preschool and I bet this would go along with what she is learning.

    I would like to win this for my daughter. She loves the original Webkinz and would probably love this as well. I love how it applies to the younger ages. My daughter is 5 and got her Webkinz when she was 4. I think she was a bit young and needed a lot of help. I like the younger version a lot. Thanks for the giveaway.
