The Motherloot Blog: Product Reviews

webkinz jrI will admit that our family is a late bloomer when it comes to the Webkinz products. My son received a Webkinz Zebra and we have been saving his activation code for the last six months as something for him to do for one of those snow days… or a day when I have completely lost my mind. Despite not having activated his pet, he loved and slept with it every single night and only recently has learned of its online virtual zebra world. Yes, the holidays can make a mom lose her mind!

When Webkinz asked if they could send us a sample of their new Webkinz Jr products, I jumped on it…mainly, to activate their codes at the same time so I could tackle some of those holiday chores.  Just imagine sweet silence while getting the chores done and knowing that your kids were getting something educational out of it to boot. You gotta love that! We received the Plush Tan Puppy from the line which includes everything from puppies to monkeys!

The Webkinz Jr line is targeted specifically at children who are between the ages of three to six. The games are age-appropriate for this age and a fun way to keep your child entertained. How do I know that they are age-appropriate? Unlike other online sites where there have been tears of frustration over not being able to understand the games, there is simply sweet silence as she plays with her virtual puppy online.

To top it off, the Webkinz Jr line is extremely plush and cozy. Our new puppy feels like a soft Gund toy that is perfect for your little one to snuggle up with at night and enjoy IRL (You know, In Real Life.)

Parents can monitor their child’s activity online with their own login, but further information does require a special paid membership. I prefer to monitor my child for free though and have her play her games next to me. Too bad that the Webkinz virtual world expires after one year and requires another purchase with a fresh activation code to start playing again. Regardless, a year of playtime and a plush toy that will last until she is tired of it for $24.95 still seems like a great deal to me!

Overall, I am really pleased and my daughter is loving her, “Daisy the Dog,” as she promptly named her… and then petted her both virtually and in real life. Ah, the power of technology!

Suggested Retail Price: $24.95

    If I am not mistaken, are not Webkinz originals retailing for half the price? So for a marketing for a even younger kids, they have doubled the price or more?

    I have a 5 year old who is just starting to use the computer. This sounds like it would be perfect for her. Most of what her older sister plays requires one of us to sit with her to help her understand. I am also a busy mom who would love to find a few minutes while she is otherwise occupied to do laundry, clean the bathroom, etc. :)

    My son would love a webkins jr. He loves all animals so much and it would give him a opportunity to cuddle with one while playing with one online. He can learn while he loves his friend. This would just make him the happiest little man.

    I have a son, who would love the webkins jr. He is just starting on the computer some and this would give him something that is just for him and not his 4 other siblings. His b-day is in Jan. This would be a perfect gift. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I have 4 kids and my 5 year old has struggled with playing the WebKinz games with her older sister since she cannot read and it’s complicated to navigate. This junior version sounds intriguing and, I’m sure, would bring less frustration and much more enjoyment for my daughter.

    My 4 year old daughter would absolutely love one of these! She loves playing computer games, but some of the websites/games seem to be too “old” for her. This would be perfect!

    This would be perfect for 3 yr old little brother to participate with big brother on the computer with his webkinz!

    My youngest daughter Ivy is Autistic but loves animals. She loves any kind and is extremely gentle with them. She would like a real pet but she is just not mentally capable of taking care of a real pet. So she would truly love and adore a webkinz jr that she could actually interact with and play with as tho it were real. It would be like a dream come true to her.

    My 5 year old has several webkinz that her younger sister likes to steal and play with. I’d love to win one for the little sister who is 2 yrs old.

    My two daughters play w/ their regular Webkinz online, & I’m sure that their three yr-old brother would enjoy having one of his own that is suited more for his age group. And yes, they are adorable & soft.

    This sounfs so awesome and entertaining for my two youngest children. As a single mom of three and a full-time college student, silent study time is almost impossible. My kids haven’t ever had anything like this, I think it would pretty cool.

    My 6yrs old daughter has been curious about Webkins, I wasnt too sure what age would be good for one. But being a Jr it would be a great start for her.

    My six year old would love this dog because she was having a hard time doing the regular webkins online. An easier program would help her to get ready for the older webkins. She loves the idea of it and taking care of the animals.

    This would be a perfect surprise for my Veterinarian-to-be. And she only has 1 Webkinz, that I held the code for 2 years and now that code is expiring.
