Heard of Webkinz? They are the new and approved stuff animal for the younger generation. Each comes with a unique code that allows you to gain access to an online world where you make an account and can take care of your pet and talk to others. However the chat options are limited because you can only select a response from a list provided. I think this is quite clever because since this is a primarily younger audience it is good to have safety and privacy precautions. This is just another case of how the world is becoming digital. Today the child's favourite toy is a Webkinz, tomorrow a cellphone. All technology based and connecting people together.
