The new plush pets come with a unique secret code which allows users to adopt their pet online.
Once users have adopted their pet within Webkinz World, they can play arcade games, enter trivia quizzes, feed, care for and look after their pet, all with an educational focus, helping children with maths and spelling through play.
Boasting one new user every minute, Ganz – the company behind the Webkinz line - has welcomed a new population of Webkinz owners across the UK in the last few months, with numbers growing daily.
These plush pets are available to buy through the Webkinz UK distributor, The In Thing. Webkinz are priced at £5.99, with the smaller Lil Kinz retailing at £3.99.
Daniel Sayers, Webkinz UK brand manager commented: “More and more children in the UK are jumping into the Webkinz virtual world to adopt and care for their plush pet.
"With a substantial TV campaign running from January to August and new styles due out every month the future for Webkinz in the UK is very exciting. We are very confident of replicating the almost unparalleled success of Webkinz in the USA’s over the coming months."
