Webkinz, Neopets, Club Penguin

The first Webkinz came out in 2005, but Ganz only recently experienced the tipping point with their Webkinz plush pets. The Webkinz site broke into the top 1000 sites in January 2007 and just this month, reached neopets.com

  10. i like them all and i have more then 3 acounts in club penguin and i have 2 webkinz acounts in neopets i have about 2 3 4 and a rumer from neopets to webkinz is if u are a new member miss birdey makes ur pet unhelthy and if u open a black leter all ur webkinz pets will blow up.

  11. hii do not be a member in webkinz DO NOT OPEN A BLACK LETER IN WEBKINZ ALL UR PETS WILL BLOW UP it’s a rumer IT’S NOT THROW

  12. I love webkinz and i LOVE clubpenquin.they both rock but you have to pay because to be a meber of club penquin every month and webkinz you have to pay once

  13. Neopets is way better than webkinz and clubpenguin because it is optional if you spend money same on clubpenguin but you cannot do anything fun if you don’t pay. And webkinz is for little kids i mean who spells a website with a frikin z at the end hello, KIDDISH! and clubpenguin I can bear but not for more than a half an hour. And neopets is a lot harder and adults actually play it. So all yall who are obsessed with webkinz get over it because you have no life. Because I bet if they deleted Webkinz you would crawl in a hole and cry for a day.

  14. webkinz is stuipid you barly move around and so what if you pay evry….i forgot when you have to pay but you can also get free stuff on clubpenguin its true and theres more clothes and guitars and webkinz is pathetic i hate webkinz theres nothing fun about it the only time you see other kinz is when you go to the club house it stinks well i sorta like webkinz i think its ok i take it back what i said before im sorry i sorta like webkinz
