This isn't exactly RPG related, but I still thought it was sort of neat. There's a new craze going on with these stuffed animals called Webkinz. They're selling for double their retail value on eBay, and stores are selling out of the popular ones pretty quickly. The cool thing about Webkinz is that each stuffed animal comes with their own code that gives you access to all sorts of games, activities and fun in Webkinz World.
I personally haven't played around in the Webkinz world, but my girlfriend is enjoying it a lot, and it seems perfect for children and fans of virtual pet games. There's a wide variety of Webkinz to collect, such as a koala bear, a tree frog, and a pink pony.
Probably best of all is the fact that you can find these Webkinz for around $8-$12, which gives you both the stuffed animal and virtual pet. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, read more about them here.
