Webkinz Jr. Party Fun

 My daughter has a boat load of Webkinz toys.  She loves to go online with her friends and play.  Recently my son became interested so I purchased one for him.  Unfortunately, it is a wee bit too complicated for him.  Actually, complicated isn't the correct word because he can perform all the fun functions of the website it just has too many ins and outs for him.  He wants it a bit more simplified so that he can have more fun with it. 

So when I received the MommyParties sponsored by Webkinz Jr. It was an excellent opportunity to see if this new website would be exactly what he was looking for in the Webkinz product.  Webkinz Jr. pets are lovable plush animals that each come with a unique Pet Code.  This pet code is then entered onto their website when you register your pet.  These "Jr." pets are geared for the 3-6 year olds.  The website has activities that help children practice the skills they're learning at school as well as encouraging social skills and caring.

We invited a bunch of kids in the 3-6 age group. Unfortunately, only a handful ended up being able to attend.  Who knew 3-6 year olds had such a tight schedule?


We had snacks and made animal puppets for a craft.

Aren't they darling?  The kids loved it.

Then we let them choose their pets. 

Once they had their very own, we had them pledge to take care of their pets.  Then we got down to some serious business of freeze dance and other games.

 
The party was a success and the kids loved getting a goodie bag which not only included their very own Webkinz Jr. pet but we were also supplied with stickers, a music CD with great children songs, and more. 
 
Once everyone left, my son couldn't wait to get online.  "Scruffy" the puppy was registered and my son played on the Webkinz Jr. website for over and hour.  He didn't need me to explain any of the games or special areas he could go to.  I have to say that this was most definitely a big hit for him and the perfect fit for him to feel like his big sister and have fun with his Webkinz too.
 
GIVEAWAY
 
Since we didn't have all of our invited children attend, I'm going to give away 2 of the Webkinz Jr. pets.
 
There will be 2 winners - meaning that each winner will receive 1 Webkinz Jr. pet in the goodie bag along with the other cool items which were supplied to me. 
 
Since I will be mailing these prizes out - I have to limit this to only continental US residents and no P.O. Boxes please. 
 
HOW TO ENTER

I'm not sure if my last comment went through. It said that there was a problem with it.

But, anyway, my son has always wanted one of these.
Our family has 7 birds. We have no other pets.

Whoops. Just attempted to leave a comment (delete it!) but forgot to leave my e-mail address!

As I was saying, we are a petless people but I think I can handle the online type. Definitely curious.

Thanks for the opportunity!

We don't have any pets. My 3 year old son would love to have one, because his sister has a lot of webkinz, and now he would have his own, and leave hers alone.
