Webkinz

Posted on Saturday, May 31st, 2008

Dave!Dear Isabella,

Yesterday I went to my mail box and there was a package in there! I was very excited to get a present in the mail, and so I ran all the way home so I could open it.

And what did I find inside? Why, it was a Webkinz Monkey and a letter from you!

Thank you very much for my new pet. I have called him Bad Monkey because he reminds me of Lil' Dave's pet monkey. He is a lot of fun, and likes to sit next to me on the couch while I watch television. It is good to have a new friend!

Dave and his new Webkinz Monkey.

In your letter you said that I should go to webkinz.com and enter a secret code so I can play with my monkey online. This is very cool! Now my monkey has a house on the internet! It is fun to buy new furniture for Bad Monkey's bedroom. I like pirates, so I am decorating it to look like a pirate ship. I even bought Bad Monkey a pirate hat!

Bad Monkey's Pirate-Themed Bedroom in Webkinz World

He likes to sleep on his pirate bed next to his favorite toy, a plastic guitar...

He also likes to climb up to his Crow's Nest Chair so he can keep an eye out for scurvy dogs who want to steal his treasure...

Bad Monkey also likes to eat a lot. His favorite foods are Potato Chips and Bug Sandwiches. He also likes Chocolate Pudding... just like me! Here are foods I like to feed him...

Webkniz food... Chocolate Pudding, Jungle Bug Sandwich, Chocolate Milk, Potato Chips, Bananas, Ice Pops, Cupcake, Waffles, and Rasins.

I like to give my monkey a bath so he stays clean and healthy...

In Webkinz World, you have to buy things with KinzCash. It is fun to win KinzCash by playing games. I bought a game called "Dogbeard's Bathtub Battles" which is a lot like "Battleship." If you win, you can get 40 KinzCash...

There is a word game you can play, but I am not very good at it...

Instead I like to play Quizzy Bear's WhizKinz game. I am very smart... like super-genius smart... so it is easy to win more KinzCash by answering questions...

With all the KinzCash I won, I bought a yard for Bad Monkey to play in. Now I am saving my KinzCash so he can plant a garden...

Thank you so much for sending me such a great present!

Your Friend,

    OMG, Dave!!! You could SO fit in with my second grade students!!! As I was reading your post, all I kept thinking about was: he sounds just like my student, Brayden, who never fricking uses contractions when he speaks or writes! This was waaaaay funny to read! Makes me want a WebKinz….I wonder if they have Hello Kitty ones?

  2. Zoe Savetz says:

    My mom just read your post to me because she reads your blog. I have 4 Webkinz and would like to be friends with Bad Monkey. Can we meet at the Clubhouse at a certain time & date? Thank you.

    My Webkinz are a kitty, penguin, poodle, and a googles. I’m getting the chicken tomorrow. Also, what is the exclusive item for a monkey???

  3. Karl says:

    Who is Isabella? Funny, that’s my niece’s name and she loves the Webkinz.

  4. Colin Brooks says:

    Haha! That’s pretty awesome!

  5. Dave, dude, you rock. This post made ME happy, so I imagine that the little girl who it’s actual addressed to will be over the moon when she reads it.

    If you were here I’d give you a big old hug right now (although I’m sure you’d prefer some chocolate pudding). :-)

  6. Beth says:

    Is it wrong that I’m a little weirded out knowing a 40 year old man is in my kids virtual playhouse??? Keep your monkey in his room, mister!!

  7. I think it’s so sweet you dedicated a post to Bella! (I’m assuming she is of the Ninjapoodles gang?) I know B loves her Webkinz! :)

  8. Sandie Law says:

    My son has a webkinz puppy. He thinks your pirate ship is cool and wants to know how much the backyard cost you. Being a huge pirate lover, I’m also a fan of Bad Monkey’s home.

  9. ~jtm says:

    Damn…now I want one, but it will probably end up in a drawer,forgotten, like my Tamagotchi.

  10. Nat says:

    OH… a monkey! My son has tired of his Webkinz online. I, on the other hand, am completely addicted to Where’s Wacky. Don’t ask…

    I am ashamed of myself.

  11. Mary Dawn says:

    that made me giggle, thanks

  12. seewhy says:

    I’m already addicted to neopets so I dare not go anywhere near this site *so tempted*

  13. Avitable says:

    FCUK isn’t allowed? What a crock of shti.

  14. kim says:

    You are doing much better at webkinz than I am. Though that probably is because you don’t have a 5 year old standing over your shoulder reminding you that it is his dalmatian.

  15. NYCWD says:

    Why do the dogs have to be scurvy?

    Obviously they just need some oranges or bananas to cure the scurvy… but I bet the monkey is hogging them all.

    Webkinz are really cool. Blinky has a dozen at the very least.

  16. nicole says:

    aww webkinz, my 3 step sons have them and love them!!

  17. Jen says:

    Webkinz are so dangerous! Once you start you just can’t stop. My son got one not that long ago and I play it far more often than he does. Enjoy your monkey!

  18. Belinda says:

    OMG, I can’t wait to show her this in the morning. Every time we see the Webkinz graphics, we’re reminded a little of the cool, clean DaveToons.

    Also, you should know, that monkey is *retired*. Of course, I didn’t tell you that ’til after you adopted it, so that means nothing anymore. Never mind.

    You’ll have to send Bella your user ID so she can send you some virtual gifts she’s saved up for your monkey. Including, uh, a toy monkey. For the virtual monkey. We’re totally down the rabbit-hole with this thing. ;-)

  19. adena says:

    Oh god, that’s cute!

  20. kilax says:

    That is so cute! No wonder the kids (and Dave)love them so much! :)

  21. ChillyWilly says:

    “That Word Is Not Allowed” OMG.. cracked up on that one.

    I may have to go to this site and see what it’s all about.

  22. Winter says:

    Ditto what Adam said. I laughed pretty hard over that panel.

  23. Hilly says:

    This post is so sweet of you, Dave. How much of a kick will Bella probably get out of this?

    And yeah, what Adam said…. ;)

  24. Lisa says:

    OMG, I haven’t laughed this hard all week! My kids have a ton of Webkinz and I’m always playing the word games to win them KinzCash…I’m a little addicted to kids games. Hey, adult games are too hard.

    Have fun with your new toy!

  25. Matt says:

    Awww – this is incredibly cute. Nice letter. :)

  26. kapgar says:

    Don’t be afraid if a polar bear named Trouty suddenly requests to board your pirate ship. We bought him some time ago but never registered online (we dig polar bears and My Boys).

    And dman Av for taking our comment. You just had to slip a little Dirty Dave into the post, didn’t you? ;-)

  27. kyle says:

    that’s awesome. great post.

  28. Stacey says:

    The word game thing totally cracked me up.

    Bad monkey is very cute.

  29. Mrs. K says:

    I totally want one now! There is nothing wrong with a little innocent fun now and then. I’m glad you’re having a good time.

  30. Patty says:

    Cute monkey ya got there! You would so get along with my son as he would prob. love that. Glad you are enjoying it. ha!

  31. jenny says:

    Wow – you got a gift from Bella? How jealous am I? Now you’re in the cool Webkinz inner circle. I love the pirate home!

    Really a sweet entry, Dave. :)

  32. I have a webkinz. My kids got it for me for Valentines day. If you send me your user name, we could be friends and visit each others houses. My house is not nearly as cool as my kids houses are because I don’t have as much time to hang out on there as they do.

  33. Mad William says:

    You are such a softy. Although, I can’t wait to try that out.

  34. Erin says:

    So adorable! I’m sure Bella will love reading about your adventures with your new monkey pal.

  35. Ahaha…you tried to spell dirty words.

    This reminds me of the time I got addicted to The Sims.

  36. Mocha says:

    I’m sending you a teaching application in the mail. No monkey will be attached.

  37. Alexis says:

    Oh my god, that is the cutest thing evereverever! I fear I’m powerless to resist the dastardly combination of my two favorite things: cute animals and a virtual intarwebz world…guess there’s no choice but to submit and treat myself to a Webkinz! Hopefully my new little buddy can drop by and pay Bad Monkey a visit! :)

  38. PocketCT says:

    Dave,
    I liked you so much that I told Karl I wanted to adopt you as my little brother. He informed me that I couldn’t because you are a little older and a lot taller than I am. I think however, now that I know you are in the elementary school social networking site for eight year olds the taller and slightly older thing is not a problem.

    Now I have two questions for you
    Can I adopt you as my little brother?
    Should I be worried about you?

  39. Sandie Law says:

    I showed the word game panel to my son. His first comment, “Oh they won’t let you do the a-word either.”

  40. Göran says:

    I think both you and Isabella are lucky to have such great friends :-)

  41. for this to be written by someone so intelligent such as yourself, this was scary. like dave turned into a 3rd grader. who wears a helmet on the school bus.
    i don’t think i like short bus dave as much as real dave…

  42. HoosierGirl says:

    My youngest son LOVES Webkinz! They’re the new “Beanie Babies”. You’re a lucky guy! Have fun online!

    J.

  43. That is radical! I was babysitting a couple months ago and helped the kid pick out a new Webkinz with his allowance money. We chose the turtle and then I got to see the online world and thought it was SO MUCH fun… Glad you’re a big kid at heart, like me!
