Sunday at the Webkinz eStore brings the continuation of Wowzer Weekend.
Along with the return of the Grey Wolf, 2 charms are also available, the Polar Bear and Yorkie Charm. A new item is also available in the Specialty Outdoor category: a Giant Bamboo Garden described as "enough bamboo to make any Panda salivate."
Surprise Saturday is back at the Webkinz eStore, and so is the Webkinz Grey Wolf. In addition to the Wolf, the Panda Charm code and the Wacky Zingoz Charm code are for sale. Also, the Zingoz Tree, last sold on August 23rd has returned.
Two members from our Webkinz Insider forum just provided images of their newest adoptions, the Triggerfish and Clownfish!
candygirl9150 was the first members to provide us pictures of her Lil' Kinz Triggerfish! A few members had already adopted them within the past few days and had been locked out of their accounts, pending an update to Webkinz World!
The PSF for the Lil' Kinz Triggerfish is "Coral Cordon Bleu" and the PSI is the "Bubbly Blue Bathtub".
Nels1M provided us with pictures of the first-known WI member adoption of the Webkinz Clown Fish!
The PSF for the Webkinz Clown Fish is "Algae Alfajore" and the PSI is the "Underwater Television".
Congratulate them both on the new additions to their Webkinz families! read more »
Many of our members have discovered an interesting glitch with the new Stripy Toque that was added to the wShop last week. When a Webkinz wearing the new toque smiles, waves, or flips, the animation for the toque changes briefly from the winter hat to what appears to be a "racing helmet". Could this be a sneak peek at a future item? At this point, we don't know, but some of our members who are racing fans are very excited about the possibility.
Congratulations to Webkinz Insider member meet virginia on the addition of the new Webkinz Hummingbird and Webkinz Porcupine to her online family. Here you can see Beija Flor posing with her Brilliant Hibiscus Chair. The Hummingbird's special food is Honeysuckle Sticky Buns. And this is Pokey Princess posing with her Porcupine Sculpture. The Porcupine's special food is Pokey Porridge.

Congratulations to one of our newest members schmoopie for being the first to report finding all four pieces of the ancient treasure map in Rock the Boat, one of the games you can play when you send your pet on a Tropical Island Vacation. It took 19 vacations for schmoopie to piece together the map. Once the fourth piece is found, the entire map is revealed, complete with an "X" marking the spot of the treasure. No other digging around was necessary; the WWS Narwhal treasure box pictured below simply appeared in schmoopie's dock.
Dragging the box into the room, reveals THREE prizes. A Tropical Island Treasure Chest, a Mermonkey Artifact and a Ghost's Gold Doubloon. We're not quite sure what, if anything, the gold coin will do. All three prizes appear to be kinzpostable! Here is a picture of all three prizes as well as a pic of schmoopie's pet frog enjoying the new prizes. Congratulations!
Last night, during the 9-10pm Quizzy's Blast activity, many of our forum users discovered that the number of darts was unlimited! At this time, we're not sure if this is related to the 128 Quick Draw chances that our users noticed on Saturday. We're also not sure if these occurrences were the result of a glitch, or if they were designed to give everyone some extra fun, but we'll be keeping a closer eye on our own hourly activities to see what might happen next! Thanks to madge06 for providing a screenshot of her dart board!
