The Molten Lava Volcano is available today at the eStore. It is an awesome outdoor animated accessory, and appears to be available on purpose this weekend. Thanks to jagular we know that it fits in outdoor yards only, not on treetops nor in underwater rooms.
Also, a Golden Goal Deer Figure code is available for sale. Here is a picture of the two items that are awarded with the code: the virtual Golden Goal Deer and the Golden Goal Stadium Seat.
The "extra" items available for Surprise Saturday at the Ganz eStore (www.ganzestore.com) are:
I've been wanting to update the rares display for a very long time on WI and just never could find a way that was as visually-pleasing as I wanted and uncomplicated enough for manual entry. I finally broke down and spent the last few days on coding a new rare entry and notice generation script!
Now, a WI staff member needs to only enter the Curio Shop rare data once and the system takes care of the rest, with a nice graphical display! Our Curio Shop Tracking Tool is also integrated into this new entry mode, so that data will become useful to everyone once again as well.
A few functions that you may not notice at first. The name of each rare item can be found by putting your mouse over the image in question. The rares for the entire day will be visible until the clock in that time zone turns to midnight, so members can see if they've missed any rares earlier in the day. Finally, whenever each time zone has a rare in the Curio Shop, the text above and below the image will turn red, giving everyone on the forum a heads up that something rare is available in the Curio Shop during that hour!
This morning's update also brought us 5 new recipes to solve in Webkinz World! Our resident recipe guru's will surely be hard at work trying to figure these out as quickly as possible. If you'd like to lend a hand, please visit our Webkinz Recipes section in our Webkinz Forum!
The 5 recipes in order are: Grapplesnap, Sweet Creola, Tusslepuff, Picaroon and Springerle Drizz. Good luck!!
Ganz updated the KinzPost section of Webkinz World last night, as well. There are 4 new wrapping papers -- Wizard Paper, Wacky Paper, Unicorn Paper, and Fairy Paper. In addition, there are a number of new stationery sets, stickers and "canned messages" to include with your gifts. Here are pictures of the 4 new wrapping papers:
Those of you who have been collecting "Zummies" in the "Zumwhere" feature will be pleased to know that new Zum prizes have been added to Webkinz World. You can now trade in your brightly colored Zummies for Zum-themed clothing, toys, decorations, and more. To access the prizes you can either go to the Magical Forest to view the Zum Field Guide, or you can purchase a Zum Field Guide from the wShop. This item can be found at the very end of the Toys & Books section. (As of this morning, the cost of the book has been lowered from 1000 KC to just 250 KC.)
To trade in your Zummies for prizes, turn to "Zumthings Catalog" at the very end of the book. Here you can see all of the prizes, their "cost" in Zummies, and how many Zummies you have collected. Click "read more" below to see pictures taken from this section of the catalog.
We are pleased to report that the programmers at Ganz have corrected the glitch in the Webkinz Rally game. Players completing the final level of the game are no longer kicked out of Webkinz World. Thank you to Webkinz Insider member chapman12 for sharing these pictures from her account with us. Here you can see "FLY-SWATTER" posing with his brand new trophy. (The helmet is a Deluxe membership prize.)
chapman12 has completed the game several times this morning and has confirmed that only one trophy can be won per account. We have also confirmed that this new trophy cannot be traded or sent via KinzPost. So, just like with Bamboo Break and Treasures of the Crystal Sea, unless you really enjoy the game, once you have received one trophy, there is no reason to continue playing.
