Webkinz Friends App for iPad and Great for Travel

Over the holidays, our family will be traveling by bus to my parents. One of our tricks for keeping the kids happy and entertained is to load up the iPad with new games and fun things to do for both Mr 5 years old and now even little sister at 1 years old is getting in on the act!

I recently had the chance to review cuddly plush Webkinz toys and its accompanying online world, so I was interested when I heard they now have a free iPad app. The iPad is by far the device that my kids prefer playing on. It is also my preference as it is the most sturdy. They can poke, and swipe quite easily and I don’t have to cringe as they bang it with their little fingers. We have house rules on how to treat all devices “nicely”, but sometimes their manual dexterity can’t keep up with what is required of a game especially on the computer.

This game is definitely not for my 1 year old, but my son and I downloaded it and started it up on the iPad.

Though we have 2 adopted Webkinz in Kinzville, it is still nice to know that we do not have to have a real-life Webkinz to play this iPad version – anyone can register to play for free.

With game play we are already familiar with, it was easy for me to help walk him through the different goals he had. Another great feature of playing on the iPad is that my son feels adventurous. He will just click on icons and try to swipe items to see what happens. I’d have to say he definitely enjoyed this game better than the computer Kinzville version. We had a good time decorating our house. My son’s fave accessories are anything musical – the jukeboxes and TV screens, he likes to act out how his pet dances.

We didn’t explore to the level of playing with other people, as for us it was most fun just exploring on our own. The touchscreen technology means that my son can play for much longer than he can on the computer.

You can download the WebKinz Friends app for iPad in iTunes by following this link.

What are some of your favorite free iPad apps for kids?

disclosure:  I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Webkinz. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.

    Unethical means of Internet marketing can harm your company’s
    reputation and authenticity. There are several reasons why any organization would require SEO Consulting Services.

    If you were to try to build your own web application or run your own SEO campaign,
    you would be forced to spend hours working on those projects while still having to deal
    with the day to day responsibilities of running your business.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the
    easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get
    annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , people
    can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Just make sure the question or problem that your book
    solves is one that is important and relevant to the majority of your market audience.
    There are conflicts between among huge data, low signals and available
    bandwidth, which is relatively small. You’ll find
    older editions of those $50, $50, $80 textbooks you’ll need for class.
