Our retail partner Ameriwade (www.ameriwade.com) has informed us that the Webkinz Jr. Plush Toys are scheduled for official release on February 20th, 2009. This means we can probably expect to see them in stores in early March.

I have a question rearding this Webkinz Jr. thing...Is is something that can be "switched" so when the child is older they can use the regular Webkinz?

I also want to make the comment that when my daughter first started using Webkinz, she was only four. I admit that using regular Webkinz was a bit overwelming, but it gave us something to do TOGETHER, and she was forced to READ so she could manipulate the website. I think using the full version and not the "babied down" version helped to keep me involved and also helped spur her reading earlier...

Just my thoughts..

I HAVE to quote this because THIS is what Webkinz SOLE mission statement seemed to ME to be about. Encouraging early learning and Parental involvement by offering a site that was FUN for both for you Dragonbird!!

ok so I live in Atlanta, (im an adult so it is ok for me to say that) and I work with some of the stores in the AmericasMart down off Spring Street in Atlanta, does anyone know which Vendor has these? (there isnt a Ganz Store there that I know of) and are they available to the public? I can try to get my hands on some pictures or something if they are.


YAY!

Hmm, I don't know, seems to me that if it is easier, then the parent can just let the younger child go that much sooner on their own...I guess each child develops at a different rate, or might be put off by the harder to use regular WW. I'll be interested in hearing what parents think after using it-especially if they have other kids that use the grownup version.

Time will tell!
