Webkinz | What Are The Age Requirements And System Requirements

What are the age requirements?
Webkinz World officials have stated their website is designed specifically for kids ages 6-13+. However, there are some games available on the site for younger kids which can be enjoyed with the assistance of an adult.

As for the many different Webkinz stuffed animals, generally you will see slight age recommendations. Children under the age of 3 years old, which seem to be the most consistent age mentioned, are not recommended. However, just playing with a Webkinz pet without Webkinz World seem to be a decision left for the parents.

As precaution, the parent should confront the seller for the age requirement. For instance, some Webkinz pets will have more fur or hair than others, which may be a problem for much younger children.

What are the system requirements?
For better quality overall and enjoyment of Webkinz World, your computer should have a Pentium III 800 MHz or higher; Windows OS 98/2000/XP; RAM 128 MB is recommended; Browsers: Internet Explorer 6 or higher, Netscape 7.2, AOL 9.0, Firefox 1.0, Firefox 1.5 preferably with a broadband connection (DSL or High-speed Internet connection); Monitor resolution 1024 x 768.

Macintosh system requirements: 800 MHz or higher; MAC OS 10.3; RAM:
256 MB recommended; Browsers: Safari 1.2.3 or higher, Internet Explorer 5.3.2; Internet Connection.
