Snowball Collection Event in Webkinz World! *UPDATE*
Winter is now in full swing in the northern hemisphere, and in Webkinz World also! The much-anticipated Snowball Collection Event has started and will run from January 18 to February 10, 2013.
If you enjoyed the Flower Collection, the Marshmallow Collection event back in July 2012, or the Halloween Candy Collection, you will like this one also since they are the same type of Click-to-Win contest. Open your Webkinz World account and go to the Map of Kinzville. In the bottom right-hand corner of your Map, you will find the snowball as pictured here on the left. Click on it to play the Snowball Collection game. You get a free bonus snowball just for showing up! Then, you can ask up to 5 of your Friends (from your Kinzphone) and send them requests for snowballs. You can send a total of 10 requests per day but only 5 snowballs will be counted. For a seventh snowball, look for the ad in Webkinz Newz. A word of warning: get your seventh snowball from the Webkinz Newz ad LAST; otherwise, it will just count as one of the 5 from your friends!
Here are the prizes that you win as you reach the 3rd, 8th, 15th, 20th and 30th snowballs:
They are the Icicle Icing Cupcake, the Winterfest Snow Globe Hat, the White Magnolia Tree (which was a promo item for the movie: "Mirror Mirror"), the Snow Cushioned Bench (an eStore item) and the grand prize of the Webkinz Willow Sapling from the retired Caring Valley Webkinz Foundation.
Our Webkinz Insider members will be happy to know that when they have completed their collection, they can start all over again and get more of these prizes, over and over again.
UPDATE: When this event first began, there was an option to complete your collection for the grand prize and begin again .. That option is no longer available once you complete your snowball collection after the recent "fix". If you started a second round before the "fix", you are able to complete it and get your grand prize, but once done, you will no longer be able to begin a new collection.
