Today’s post is off subject. How many of you love stuffed animals? I, for one, love them! They come as different animals, different colored animals, and different shapes and sizes! I love one type of stuffed animal in particular: Webkinz. Webkinz are those cute, adorable, pets that come with a tag that says: Webkinz: Discover a virtual world! I collect Webkinz, and the most amazing thing is: I bonded over them! I have an amazing friend all because of Webkinz-and chance. Before I tell you the story, I have to explain something. Ganz (the makers of Webkinz) also make Lil’Kinz, the little version of Webkinz. There can be a Webkinz Dog, and there can be an identical, but smaller, Lil’Kinz dog. Ok, now I will tell you the story:
I was at a homeschool co-op, when I saw a girl who had a stuffed dog, a Webkinz to be exact. I said to the girl: Hey, I have the little version of that dog! Later, when I got home, I ordered a Webkinz Pug. When I went back to the co-op, I showed her the dog, and we played with my pug, and her Cocker Spaniel Webkinz. The next week, she brought a Lil’Kinz pug to our co-op. So if you remember, she had a large Cocker Spaniel, I had a small one. She had a small pug, I had a big one. And so it went: Pugsly (my big pug) married Charity (her big Cocker Spaniel) and had puppies, the two Lil’Kinz! We make up (somewhat funny) stories of how the older dogs meet, and how they have puppies. Now we are close friends, all because of Webkinz.
Do you have Webkinz? Do you have an online account? I do! Do you have any codes you are looking to give away? I don’t! 🙂 Do you have an amazing/weird/funny/cool friendship story that you’d like to share? Please do!
