I am once again late tot he party. Today I was talking with my friend John at work about toyz and he told me that he wanted to get his kidz some Webkinz. Webkinz? What the heck are Webkinz? Well apparently they are the hottest toys for kidz at the moment. I mean these are the combination of Pokeman and Beanie Babiez. The buzz around theze thingz iz incredible. And yet, I firzt heard about them today. Honestly I had no clue what they are until John told me.
You may have noticed that I have some Amazon.com affiliate linkz on the site. There was one today for a Webkinz. It think that when something enters your knowledge then you see it all the time, everywhere. It is so weird.
So, Webkinz are very interesting because they are toys that you play with because they are stuffed animals. But you can also play with these online as well. They have homes, toys and all sorts of things that they can do online. And you have to play with them or they get sick and die. What an marketing juggernaut this has become. This has been around for a while and yet, just heard about it.
I thought that this would be an interesting thing to mention on the technology blog. Using technology to sell overpriced stuffed animals is amazing.
