Webkinz in the Toronto Globe and Mail, and in the house

The author of the article in the Globe and Mail calls Webkinz revolutionary and the publisher/manufacturer visionary.

Our link is courtesy of Raph Koster, who is also tracking the Webkinz craze, and who admits he didn't consider the collectability of the plush dolls. There has been a secondary market on eBay and Amazon for some time. The dolls are fragile, only surface washable. This may contribute to their long-term scarcity, and reinforce their collectablility. I wonder what will happen when the accounts change hands without need for the physical doll.

I got my Webkinz yesterday. It's a tree frog. I haven't named it yet.
