Webkinz Jr. Party and playtime


Today is another fun Hip Homeschool Hop so I thought I would post a quick review from our 5th year old Nathan's birthday party last week.  We were blessed to be chosen to host a Webkinz Jr. Party as part of MomSelect. About 2 weeks before the party I received an email about the party (I honestly had totally forgotten I even applied), then I received this huge box via UPS. Inside the box was party supplies, ideas, and 10 goody bag complete with coloring books, song CD's, stickers, and Webkinz jr. pets.

Nathan picked out an adorable puppy.

and Cameron selected a cute white mouse.

Both little critters are super soft and each comes with a code to set up Webkinz Jr. activities online

This week we set up the boys' webkinz jr. accounts and let them play. The website is geared toward ages 3-6 but Cameron who is 7 1/2 still had fun. The games are fun , colorful and educational. There is a parent's area as well where you can view , set up and change your children's accounts, send them cards, and if you choose to go with the deluze memership you can even print out activities that match the monthy themes. ( I'm still trying to decide on the deluze membership as we are already signed up with a couple other online activities).

Anyway, I handed out all 10 of the critters (2 stayed at our house), so far the kids that got the critters are loving them, I even received the cutest voicemail from my 3 year old nephew telling me how much fun he was having with Ohso (his giraffe) and the coloring book.

I am planning on adding a Webkinz jr. Card to Nathan's workbox activities  as we add more boxes and activiites for the year.

If you have Webkinz I would love to hear your opinion especially on how a little boy age 7 1/2 would enjoy it... (He really is too old for the .jr edition). and if you stopped here from the Hip Homeschool Hop, let me know.

Have a great day!


  1. Just stopping by from the hop! Looks like fun!!!

  2. Webkinz definitely targets a younger age group. Although, my son used to really enjoy all of the fun games there when he was younger.

    Thank you so much for joining the Hip Homeschool Hop today.
