Meet the Webkinz, a cuddly collection of very special plush pets. Every Webkinz wears a tag with a secret code that can only be read after purchase. This code is the password into Webkinz World, an online environment just for kids. After they log in, kids can name and adopt their new pet, learn all about it, play and have fun. There are rooms to build, trivia challenges to play and lots of arcade games, too. It's all age-appropriate, friendly and welcoming.
