Congratulations to fan favorite, Webkinz World, winner of the 2010 Reader's Choice Award for Best Virtual World for Kids. The subscription-based website is unlocked through the purchase of a Webkinz stuffed animal. From there, kids are invited to care for their pets, play games, earn coins and decorate their own in-game homes. Webkinz World is a closed community with a nice suite of parental controls. It is highly regarded for quality entertainment and a safe environment.
We also want to acknowledge all of our finalists for a job well done:
