Zack's Webkin

On Saturday Zack visited a friend who has a "webkin" and came home insisting that he must have one. Zack is given a weekly allowance of $2.50 so any toys he wants have to be purchased by him (unless it's Christmas, birthday or earned in some other way). So, he got to work and drew this depiction of his intended purchase. He was told they were $6 and he wanted the elephant version. He was also told they were sold at Walmart. He placed $14 (all the money he owns) inside the folded drawing and taped it up. So today after school he grabbed the drawing and off we went to Walmart. Well, just in case you are looking for Webkins this holiday season, Walmart does not have them. We had to go to the Red Balloon and they were $14.99. Guess who's not getting a Christmas present from Zack this year? Anyway, he is thrilled with his purchase and can't wait to buy clothes for his elephant next time he saves up a mere $5-$10!

I've never heard of Webkins. What a cute face Zach's elephant has. I'll have to check these out.

To my disappointment, my boys haven't been introduced to webkins yet. Darn! I love that Zack has a concept of money and that he earns money and can buy what he wants with it! Good parenting, Steve and Deid!!!

We have a webkins but I haven't told the kids what it is really. So we haven't gone online to do whatever it is you do online with your webkins. You'll have to explain it to me!
