Educational Fun and Great Family Memories for Grandparents and Their Grandchildren Thanks to Webkinz Stuffed and Virtual Animals – Update and Recap!

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

Webkinz stuffed and virtual animals are big favorites with all of my grandkids, and probably with many of your grandchildren! Playing with the Webkinz online world is lots of fun but it can also be a bit of a challenge. Especially for all of us busy baby boomers in the Sandwich Generation as we are dealing with the myriad of issues involved in caring for the elderly parents in our family and helping with the grandchildren. That’s why I wrote the 11-part series,ย Webkinz Stuffed and Virtual Animals โ€“ Activities for Grandparents and Their Grandchildren!

A Panda is cute but a Webkinz Panda is cute and a gift that will be fun and educational for your grandchildren all year long

GUESS WHAT! Webkinz made a few changes. So here I am to give you the updates I’ve spotted, just in time for y’all to have fun building sweet family memories while playing Webkinz with your grandkids for the Christmas holidays! ๐Ÿ™‚

The first time you log on for the day, it now shows the DAILY KINZCARE right away as you open the page. Be sure to tell your grandkids to click on the correct day of the week as this is one of the easiest “how to earn money” tips on Webkinz. ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus they usually get a food item for their pet, which saves them money as well. Once they click on the right day, it probably won’t show up the rest of the day, even if they re-log on later.

This is the new screen on Webkinz stuffed and virtual animals world that pops up first - its one of the easiest how to earn money tips on Webkinz

They’ve re-designed some of the menus. To get to the daily activities and earn money, you still click on THINGS TO DO, but then you have to click on MAP OF KINZVILLE. (Sometimes you will also see TODAY’s ACTIVITIES in the top left of the screen, but not always so I am just teaching my grandkids to go straight for the map. Much easier.) Once the map shows up, you can click on TODAY’s ACTIVITIES – #1 on the picture below) to do most of the daily activities. The GEM HUNT is not there anymore, however. For that, you click on CURIO SHOP on the map (#2). It will then take you to the shop where they can enjoy the GEM HUNT.

Theres been several changes and updates at Webkinz stuffed and virtual animals world - so heres some info for all you grandparents and grandchildren just in time for Christmas activities and fun family memories

There are a few other changes, but I don’t think any are related to my past articles. My grandkids are quite excited about some of the new options such as the “Unlocking the Key” projects (#3 on the above picture) and Amazin’ Hamsters (we think it was where #4 is pointing, but it’s disappeared for the moment ๐Ÿ™‚ ). That did require a download each time we used it so you would have to help them with that. It is brand new, so perhaps they are working out the kinks? ๐Ÿ™‚

If you spot any other changes, let me know and I’ll post the updates. In the meantime, have plenty of winter fun with your grandkids and their Webkinz stuffed and virtual animals. It can definitely be a lot of fun and very educational (we’re using a couple of the games as fun with phonics resources). Always a fun combination for us grandparents and our grandchildren!

  • Happy New Year, Kaye! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You’re off to a great start with awesome info for parents and grandparents. My kids were obsessed with Webkinz, but *sigh* those days are long gone. ๐Ÿ™‚ TMT will be resuming next week …. look forward to have more conversations with you in 2011. You’re the best!!

  • Hi Melinda, Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚ And be watching – we’re adding articles about the great Wii games for everyone in the family from kids to seniors. Perfect for younger AND older kids and even us boomers (although, according to two restaurants, I’m also a senior ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I’m quite excited to announce I’m still bad at them, but not as bad as last month!!! HEHEHEHEHE ๐Ÿ™‚ So I’m looking forward to tweeting some of those your way this month. ๐Ÿ™‚
