You could always teach your daughter how to decline the friends request, and explain that you don't want her using it. And if you let her use it, just explain that just because she may send a gift to someone, doesn't mean that they will return the favor.
I'd say 95% of my daughters Webkinz friends were random people who asked (or they asked them) to be friends. Some they see all the time, most are never on. I would not worry about it. Webkinz world is very safe.
No real personal information can be shared on Webkinz World. Don't worry about it. There is no danger involved here. People probably got your name from WI. Just block them on WW if you feel uncomfortable for your daughter.
Everyone else already covered it. Webkinz doesn't share any of your personal information with people on your WW friends list. You don't really have anything to worry about. But all the same, if it makes you uncomfortable, just delete/block/decline the people.
And you might consider removing your WW ID from you WebkinzInsider profile. Click on Edit Details under QuickLinks at the top of the page. Then where it has the little WW icon, delete your username.
Also consider setting your "my page" to only allow people already on your phone to see your page. To access your My Page, look under "me and my pets" on the "Things to Do" navigation menu on WW.
It's from your mypage, a feature new to WW that allows other members to see your favorite game, your pets, high scores and favorite foods. They probablly just want as many friends as possible. I clicked ok for one of them and they sent me some food. i was like okay, thanks?
Some of my friends have had problems with accepting friends requests, and then getting their accounts hacked into. I'm sure 99 out of 100 requests are fine, but it's the 1 that gets you. I decline all invites unless I'm expecting it, cause I'm a paranoid believer in Murphy's Law. I've spent money and time getting webkinz and trading for items to allow my account to get messed up ...
