It's ok, for the right kid
on November 24, 2007
I bought this recently for my daughter's birthday. All the kids at the party went wild when she opened it. I think kids are all reacting to the hype they hear about this toy. None of the little girls who were at the party actually have one yet. They may be dissappointed like my daughter was. The internet play with the animal is less then impressive. It's very similar to playing on Neopets.com, except that your pet isn't gogni to die if left unattended for too long. My daughter actually played on Neopets, but I'm the only one who has shown any interest in goign to the Webkins site to see what is was all about. It's cute, but not much fun. You have to earn a lot of points to buy things for your pet, including food. You bascially have to spend more time earning points than playign with your pet. I can see where kids would lose interest very quickly with this. I suggest just setting up a free account at Neopets.com before buying this item, to see if your child would hold any interest in the online part of this toy.
