Webkinz tend to open up children's imagination and make their conversations more interesting with their parents. We love hearing the stories, espcially my 6 year old. My 3 year old loves to look at them before we ship them. We have shipped them all over the world and will continue to do so. So we would love to hear from you even if you haven't bought from us. Thanks again and hope to be shipping your Webkinz real soon.
