New Challenges and Message Center Added to Webkinz World *UPDATE*


There are new challenges in Webkinz World. Get ready for the Snow Day Challenge. The Snow Day Challenge will involve playing Polar Plunge, buying a Stripy Toque and asking your friends for 10 cups of Candy Cane Cocoa. This last item will involve the new Message Center feature in Webkinz World. You can click on a member to send them a request for the Candy Cane Cocoa. That member will then receive the request and click on it to send your Candy Cane Cocoa. The Message Center shows members whom you have played with last so you can send them friends requests. This is the new place to go to receive friend requests, party invitations & messages. There is also a Friend Finder feature list that you will be able to add yourself to.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Also pictured here are the Bon Appetit and the Green Thumb Gardener challenges. The Bon Appetit challenge consists of successfully completing the Hamburger cook job,  making a snack for your pet using a stove, sandwich maker or blender and earning 20KC playing Pizza Palace. The Green Thumb Gardener requires you to purchase 5 growing seeds from the wShop, plant  5 growing seeds in your pet's yard and water 5 Growing Garden plants.
 
Also reported are challenges called Sparky's Challenge and An Artists Touch. Sparky's Challenge involves achieving 2000 points or higher in Goobers Lab, earning 25KC playing Where's Wacky and feeding your pet 10 glasses of Chocolate Milk. The Artists Touch Challenge has you completing a Fence Painting job, dragging and dropping the Colorful Characters Coloring book into your pet's room and earning 40KC playing Color Storm.
 
To learn more about the Webkinz Challenges and to exchange tips and tricks with other Webkinz players, visit the Webkinz Challenge section of our forum, HERE, or the guide in our WIki, HERE.
 
UPDATE: Please do not think the Candy Cane Cocoa will cost you anything. Just follow the Ask Friends option and it will not cost you or your friend a thing. See HERE!
 
UPDATE: Some members are reporting that they needed to allow popups to get this to work.
 
UPDATE:  One of the prizes for the Artist's Touch Challenge is the Busy Artist Smock, which is an unsolved clothing machine item!  As far as we know, this is the first time this item has been available to Webkinz players.

Okay, probably a really stupid question, but how on earth do I send a request for someone to send the cocoa. Can I use an existing friends list, or does it have to be someone I have played with recently - and again - how do I do that?
I definitely don't like this part of the challenge already! I thought this was a kids based site!!! No wonder younger kids lose interest in Webkinz!!

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

I don't like the friend request challenge either because of the same reasons - it makes it difficult for my kids to just play and have fun. They have each other as friends, but that's it.

Also, I think you have to buy the candy cane cocoa from the eStore. That's also pretty unfair.

Does anyone know if there's a way to get the candy cane cocoa needed for this task without buying it from the eStore?

No you do not need to buy the Cocoa. You just send out a request and your friends respond to it. Easy as pie!!

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

You can send the request by hitting the hints button rigth from the challenge menu. This will access your friend list. The only problem is that we have kids with limited friends lists and no estore accounts. Unfortunately, the cocoa is from the etore only so we may not do this challenge when we have done all the others!

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

I used my existing list. And also requested new friends. The new friends are the ones who seem to send me back the cocoa.

Also, I noticed it doesn't cost anything to send a friend a cup of cocoa. So come on everyone, send those cocoas to your friends!!!!!

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

SO exciting I like the 'Castleville' feel of sending your friends a cup of hot chocolate or sparklers this is FUN, exhausting, but fun.
I have had to resort to using a notebook to keep track of what is done and what isn't. *whew*

Easy PEASY, this exists in a 'mystery dock' we seem to have an endless supply of those. Just click on the firends in your friends list through that task button and you automatically send it. YOu don't have to buy it. Just hope your friends are as generous as you

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

So one of my accounts has the "ask friends" button above the "buy" and "hint" buttons but my other account only has the "hint" button but no way to ask friends :/ Frustrating.

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

Hmmmm...when I hit the "hints" button it explains to me that I need to send requests for the cocoa, but I'm not getting a list of friends or button for sending the requests. I'm usually pretty savvy with the new Webkinz features, but this one has me stumped. It's probably really easy, and I'm just missing something obvious!

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

How do you buy the cocoa? I am happy to send, but it asked for estore points...how many kids actually have that =(

That's the problem I'm having, too. I hope it's just a glitch that will get fixed soon. I've received several requests from my friends, and I've been able to send them the cocoa, so that part is working for me at least.

For anyone who is struggling here is what the various steps look like:

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

From what I gather, Is the only way to buy the Candy Cane Cocoa from the Estore? That's really unfair. Some people can't afford that.

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

I am only getting the hint button not the other two buttons.

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

Also, I got a message I was sent a Candy Cane Cocoa, but it's not in my dock.

No, you do not have to buy it. You just ask friends and they click on the applicable button to send it to you. No buying involved.

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World

Re: New Challenges and Message Center added to Webkinz World
