One of our readers, Ms. AGdoll, sent in this furry feature on the Webkinz Lil’ Kinz plush pets as fun additions to your 18″ dolls’ pet collection.
My AG doll, Sadie Elizabeth, is going to show you how Webkinz Lil’ Kinz pets are a great alternative to American Girl brand pets.
Here is Sadie with the Webkinz Lil’ Kinz Yorkie. The Yorkie is soft and huggable, but can still stand easily as she is plush. However, the Yorkie cannot sit, her legs are too short. The Yorkie comes with a small white bow with tiny red hearts on it attached to a tuft of fur on her head. Her body is covered with long, textured, pale pink and white fur, except for her paws, face, and ears, which have shorter, softer white fur on them. She has the Webkinz symbol embroidered onto the bottom of her right front paw.
Now a close-up of the Yorkie. Her head seems to be tilted a bit to the right. I don’t know if all of the Yorkies are made that way, or if it is just this one. It does make her look cute though. One thing about the Webkinz Lil’ Kinz pets is that they do not have a magnet in their mouth like the American Girl pets do. Also, since the Yorkie’s fur is long and textured, she needs to have her fur smoothed by hand and/or combed frequently to keep her in good condition.
Now Sadie is playing with the Webkinz Lil’ Kinz Cocker Spaniel. It is soft plush, and can stand easily as you can see. Every Webkinz pet that I have seen could stand, in case you wanted to know. The Cocker Spaniel has short, soft, brown fur mixed with slightly longer golden colored fur covering it’s head, ears, back, and tail. The rest of the body is covered in short, soft, cream colored fur. The Cocker Spaniel has the Webkinz symbol on it’s paw like the Yorkie. All real Webkinz pets will have the signature “W” embroidered onto one of their paws. The Cocker Spaniel does not need as much fur care as the Yorkie, and I think that he is generally cuter.
Here Sadie is teaching her puppy to sit. As you can see, the Cocker Spaniel can sit easily, unlike the Yorkie.
Sadie waves goodbye with her two pets. Webkinz Lil’ Kinz pets are the perfect size for an 18 inch doll, and are also much more affordable than the American Girl pets, as they are about $3 to $7 each as opposed to the American Girl pets that are about $22 to $28 each. I think that a Webkinz Lil’ Kinz pet would be a perfect item to add to any 18 inch doll collection.

**Only Webkinz Lil’ Kinz pets are the right size for an 18 in doll. The regular sized Webkinz pets are too big**
**Webkinz pets can only be surface washed as they are plush.**
