The Webkinz Thing

Oy!
What an ongoing craze this has turned into.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, first take 20 whacks with a wet noodle, then go look Here.

We were late getting in on this since we got the girls their first toys (a white terrier for Ara and a chihuahua for Rea)only last summer. At the time we figured that we'd be home more since we'd just moved to Calgary and were still unpacking and trying to figure our way around.

And it grew....and grew!
This year saw us dashing all around from Cold Lake to Sherwood Park, and all around Edmonton for the Webkinz Extravaganza in April.
We came back with way more toys than I ever planned on getting, but the kids have been enjoying them.

Actually, I was playing with their toys after they went to bed every night, so one day Oshean brought me one of my own.
Yup, this pretty lady here is "Amour", the Love Frog :)...and she's all mine!

I most definitely know what Webkinz are. In fact, I think we are in danger of them taking over the house! A few new pink Googles joined the herd this weekend. I love that you have your own! some of those games are quite addicting! ;)

Hey Laci-Loo....

We're passed the Webkinz fad, Teisha says she doesn't like them anymore after collecting about
40 :( OUCH!!!! Actually she earned many of them.....glad to hear some lil ones still enjoy them, they're all so cute. I still have some Beanny Babies in their boxes from wayyyyy back.
