New Addiction

Hi, my name is Kellie and I'm a Webkinsholic.
Yes, I admit it. When Megan goes down for a nap in the afternoon and when she goes to bed at night, one of the first things I do is log into her Webkins account and play. I am getting pretty good at the Home Before Dark and Dex Dangerous games in the arcade. The Color Storm was tricky for me at first, but I finally got to the orange raindrop level today. The Cash Cow games are fun, but I think I prefer the version where it's possible for bottles to break, making it just a bit harder.

I also like feeding Megan's Webkins dog, Swesty. She came up with the name all by herself. Since I don't get to do a lot of shopping for me and the kids, I enjoy going to the "store" and picking different foods for Megan's cyber pet. Anything from baked beans and bacon wrapped bones to asparagus and soda is on the menu.

Then there's the rooms you can decorate for Swesty the dog! I got her a karaoke machine and a new toy the other day. The better you do on the games the more Webkins "cash" you have to spend on your pet. Now that Megan has more money in her Webkins account, Swesty is getting a bigger and nicer place. In addition to the karaoke machine and new toy, he has a huge bed, a nice dresser, pink and green paint in the bedroom, blue paint in his living room, a balloon, book, a backyard, and a ball. I'm sure tomorrow has more fun in store. I'd do it now, but unfortunately the website is doing maintenance (growl).

I think you have to buy an animal. My mom bought both kids animals and we set it up when we got home. We haven't actually done Jeremy's yet since he's too little to understand, but we probably will soon.
