Webkinz Redux

It's been over 6 months since I last wrote about Webkinz - Crack for Kids, and the debilitating obsession that can happen with kids and on-line gaming. Still, that article is being referred to in the news. In August, the UK Guardian picked it up... Last week, it was The Age, in Australia, who referenced my wee article. And a few days later, The Sydney Herald...  Folks continue to leave comments and it looks like the original tide of love for Webkinz type applications is starting to turn. NBC has a story in May, and I can only make the reasonable assumption that they borrowed the *Crack for Kids* tagline ;-)

That being said Dave Barry compares Webkinz to South Florida Crack. :-) And he did it in Feb of 2007.
