Around a decade ago, a toy more popular and easier to access than Hatchimals swept the country: Webkinz. Kids were obsessed with the toys for a lot of reasons. First, they would get cute stuffed animals — but the fun didn’t end there. Each animal had a little code that would allow the child to enter a virtual world where they could take care of their Webkinz, play games, mine gems, go to clubhouses, and so much more. Looking back, Webkinz were fun but they were also a step toward the world of websites all designed to keep kids online all the time. With so many parents worried about their kids having so much freedom online, it’s nice to look back to a time where this wasn’t such a big issue.
