My friend Rhonda and I were talking on Yahoo Messenger about kids and computers and she mentioned something about her daughter going to www.webkinz.com and how her daughter loved it. I had no idea what it was so I went there to check it out with Alex and soon found out you had to have this special code from an animal. I have to say I sometimes feel like we don't "treat" Alex as much as the boys so at Kidfest I knew they would be there and wanted to get one for her. I didn't tell her though till we started looking and when we started checking them out I asked if she wanted one. She lit up although she still had no idea what the world it was and really neither did I! We just knew you needed the animal to get on the website. So after going through all 30 + of them she decided on a chihuahua she had no idea what to name. I suggested Cholo and so she now has Cholo the chihuahua. lol Yep he's alittle gangsta dog. Hee Hee! She loves her new toy, carries it everywhere and is learning all about money responsibility online with Cholo and making him comfy in his cyber home. She told me the other day "Uh Oh! I only have $600 now!" It was cute.
From what I'm hearing these are to be the new beanie babies and they will selling out everywhere. They are soft, cuddly and I would have bought 10 if it wasn't for the $12 price tag. The ladies at this boutique were saying that once you buy one then you have to have another and so on. We'll see how many we have before Christmas. lol Thanks Rhonda for making Alex one happy little girl! So will anyone else be buying a Webkinz for someone or themselves this year?
