Well if she really doesnt like them then there really isnt anything anyone can do. Just show her what it is and what it's about. Jesbaker had a really funny but yet great idea too! xD Good luck convincing her!

Hide all the decks of cards in the house so that the only way she'll be able to play "Go Fish" is on Webkinz. 'Nuff said.

Hmmmm Maybe she doesn;'t want one B/C SHE IS AN ADULT!!!! Why are you trying to get your mom to do Webkinz if she told you she doesn't want one???? It is for kids! I am fine when adults have them but why try to make hER???


Please be polite when you post. Lots of adults like webkinz and it is a great thing for parents/kids to do together - smitchell

When I first saw Webkinz, I didn't understand the appeal, and thought it was just silly. I really didn't get involved in it until a family member got me one. I put it on really just to please her, and with all the games and everything, I got hooked. I love playing games, and designing the rooms and collecting the rare items. You could try to do that, if you think it would work.

It might be that your mom doesn't like stuff like that and will never be really interested in it. Some people just aren't, so she might be one of those people. However, you know what she'd like best on the website. I would make sure to be doing whatever it is when she's around so she could see it.

I just thought of something simple, but it could work. If she likes games, be playing a game that she would like while she's around. Pretend that while you are playing the game, you have to go to the bathroom or something. Get her to "play it for you". When you come back, after more than a few minutes, see if you can discreetly find out how she liked it.

I like all the ideas. Well all my ideas are taken but I liked everyone's elses. And also my mom absolutely hates webkinz.

LOL, my mom made it up to level 7 on quizzy's before getting too tired, after loudly stating she was going to play it "for only 5 minutes."
She also helped me name my cow, MuMu, and over the weekend I'm going to show her more parts of WW. (She said she "can't wait!" LOL.)

[I miss you too, Steph! ]

Sweetsparx---Maybe, just MAYBE, I miss my mom because she isn't around as much, and we don't have time to do many things together besides squeeze in a board game once in a while, so I thought webkinz was a good way to connect...and trust me, she's already starting to love it. Before YELLING at me, put yourself in my shoes. But yeah, thanks for hurting my feelings! It just MADE my entire day.
