Playing in Webkinz
This is Computer Girl playing in Webkinz. Are you familiar with Webkinz! I am extremely particular about letting kids on the computer because of either the viruses or malware people try to put on your computer, the trash you can so easily run across, or the objectional message of the games even for children. But that all changed when my friend Angela told me about Webkinz.
Webkinz is an online game for kids that is fun, nice, educational, and developmental. I just love it and so do the girls. You purchase a Webkinz animal at a participating retailer. It is a stuffed animal that runs about $15.00 - $20.00. It comes with a code that allows you to go to the Webkinz site, http://www.webkinz.com/ , where you register and name your webkinz pet. Once you are logged in the website opens to a full screen application which makes it difficult to accidentally open other applications.
After registering you get a room for your pet when you register and can buy more rooms to add on to your house, clothes for your pet, toys, food, etc. You earn money to buy stuff by playing games. Don't you wish we had it so easy! Of course if you like games, your kids may never get to play with it and you will never get anything done. When Word Girl got her first Webkinz I played with it all the time. Then I discovered blogging. Like that helped.
This is a great gift idea for kids of just about any age.

Ahhh. Life doesn't get much better than this.
