Now we know what the "Something
Fishy" teaser ads were hinting at. According to the front page of the
Newspaper, underwater rooms are coming to Webkinz World. It appears
that these special rooms may only be available on accounts that have
adopted either the new Manatee or the new Fantail Goldfish. As soon as
an adoption of one of these new Webkinz is reported, we'll be certain
to bring you all of the details.
Three more Webkinz have been officially retired by Ganz: the Beagle,
the Collie, and the American Albino. It is worth noting that the
American Albino isn't scheduled for release until next month. Also, the Rhino, which was retired in May, is now officially listed as "Sold Out".
In addition to the Bunny Hoody Set we have already told you about, there are four more Plushie Clothing items scheduled for release: Army Shirt, Army Pants, Varsity Jacket, and Sleeveless Hoody Set. They are all scheduled for release in late August 2008.
Also, just a reminder, the Webkinz Trading Card Series Three Packs should be released to retailers soon!
As we already know, the Cotton Candy Bunny is scheduled to be released for the Easter 2009 season, and the Duck is scheduled to be re-released, but now we can tell you about two more Easter-themed items that are also scheduled to sold: the Powder Puff Carrier and the Bunny Hoody Set.
The Easter Season items are all scheduled for release mid-February 2009.

As many of our members
suspected, the construction at the Clubhouse means KinzChat
PLUS is coming back soon. It's not back yet, but as soon as the doors open, we will be certain to let you know. Kids, you'll have to have a
parent's permission before you can visit this new area. Parents, for
more information about KinzChat Plus, including how to grant or deny access, please follow this link to the
Webkinz Parent's Area: http://mci2.webkinz.com/parentarea/
Thank you to all of our members with Asian accounts who posted this picture. read more »
A small number of Webkinz World
accounts were treated to a preview of the new "My Page" feature today. A statement released by Ganz
indicates that they are using this preview to make sure everything is
ready before the programming is added to the rest of the accounts in
Webkinz World. Check out the "Things To Do" menu on your account. If
you have the "My Page" button, your account has been selected for the
preview. If you don't have it yet, just be patient. Hopefully you will
have access to it soon.
"My Page" is similar to the Profile Pages we have here on Webkinz
Insider. You can customice your page with information about your
Webkinz family, your favorite things in Webkinz World, your Arcade
scores and more. Just like with regular KinzChat, all of the options
are preprogrammed, so there is no risk of any real-world personal
information being exchanged.
