She'll definitely love Quizzy's Word Challenge then!

If she likes math games or brainteasers, ask her to try the Kinzpost sorter or Get11 solitaire. KP Sorter is what got me hooked! I loved the challenge, and my little sisters couldn't get past level one... so they used to ask me to help.

I think asking for her advice with room decorating would help too. That's why I wanted my own account, as opposed to just playing on the girls. I got soooo frustrated with the way they decorated, and wanted to be able to do my own room.

Oh, one other suggestion! She might like the tournament arena. My favorite game there is Atomicolicious! I would only show this to her if you are not having issues with the arena. We have been having a lot of problems with games timing out before they start, even when my daughter and I are trying to play together. If you are having this problem, you don't want her getting frustrated with the site before she even really gets started!

Ya know, it just isn't for some people. I can't get my hubby into it either. He will get on and play with my girls sometimes but not much.

One thing I might suggest is to have your mom sit down and play on your account WITH you. I get on my computer (on my account) and play games in the tournament area with my kids sometimes. Or we just sit down and play together.

But remember, it just might not be her thing. Good luck!

My daughter got me started by asking for my help with designing a room or picking out an outfit. I think that now I have more Webkinz than she does

Some people who can not get Webkinz they make a thing that people sign on here like If you think webkinz are awesome sgn here! Then show your mom all the kids who like it. Or if your friends have one you can ask for the password so tyou can earn her money while having lots of fun. Thyats what my friend did. But now I have alot of Webkinz. Or you could save up your money and buy one yourself, or save up your money then ask your mom to pay half or maybe add some money. Or if you are not very good at saving money up you couldhave a garge sale, or something! Hope this helps! Good luck! Oh, and if you do the first one I will sign it and get all my friends to sign it, so if you do that PM me. And again good luck and I hope this helps!

Good idea! Some of the games are actually more fun/easier with a second set of eyes.

With Goober's Lab, sometimes one of the little ones stands over my shoulder and points out combos that I would have missed.

And your mom would be able to help you see more/better words in the Quizzy's game. I always like to help the girls with that one when they're playing. (We play WordSmith together on Tivo too... same concept. You score better with more eyes on the screen!)

Lots of great advice here! I hope you find the thing that works for you and your mom! I do like the suggestion of being honest and letting her know you want to share time with her doing something you enjoy but whatever you try Good Luck!

well, first show her the site, and that you can design roos and stuff [my fav part at least], and then the games. if she still doesn't want one, you can't really change her opinions...

Also, since webkinz is mostly for kids (and the young at heart) she just may not be interested. YOu could also show her some of the games. My mom likes word games, and will sometimes if she feels like it, get on my account and play quizzys and get me some kinzkash (and she rocks at that game!!!)
