They're not as cute as the extremely popular webkinz, but they are interactive! Have you heard of UB Funkeys? My daughter has a set that she got from my mom for Christmas. The "base" Funkey plugs in to the computer via a USB cable, and she can change which Funkeys she's playing with from the base.
On their home page, you can take quizzes, respond to polls, play games, and visit Funkini Island or FunkeysTown with your own collectible Funkeys. There are tabs where you can click on "Who are the Funkeys," "The Funkey Community, and "Funkey Facts."
The official description of Funkeys states: U.B. Funkeys™ - the collectible figures that unlock a virtual world filled with games and items. Each Funkey that you collect unlocks new zones. Play the games in the zones you unlock to earn coins to buy items you can customize your “crib” with. Post your virtual world crib online for all of your friends to see!
