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.
Many of you noticed a new
"teaser" advertisement in Webkinz World today. Could this be a
reference to the new Faintail Goldfish Webkinz expected out next month,
or should we be wondering about something bigger? As soon as we can
confirm what this is about, we will let you know.
Three new Lil Kinz have been
added to the wCares program: Lil Kinz Horse, Lil Kinz St. Bernard, and
Lil Kinz Persian Cat. Thank you to sweetheart422, a member of our forum, for sharing this picture of the latest additions to her Webkinz family with us.

The Zingoz Celebration has begun! "It's time to get a little Wacky"! Zingoz Celebration will last from Thursday, July 17th through Wednesday, July 23rd. Thank you to our members with Asian Time Zone accounts for giving us a sneak peek at the festivities.
Floating Zingoz have been spotted in Webkinz World. Clicking on a
Zingoz will win you the previously unseen Zingoz Plushie. Keep your
eyes peeled and click quickly. Once Zingoz Celebration is over, these
adorable animals could be gone for good. Congratulations to Cozmic and Roselake for being the first WI members to report clicking Zingoz.
UPDATE: We can now report that the Zingoz are flying on an Eleven Minute Schedule. What this means is that every eleven minutes you will have a chance at having a Zingoz fly across your screen. This same timing was observed during the Webkinz ExtravaGANZa with the Flying Pigs.
The Wacky Zingoz 600 Trophy which has been unavailable for over a year
now has returned for the Celebration. To pick up a trophy, visit the
Arcade and try your hand at Wacky Zingoz. If you can hit the Zingoz to
a distance of 600 or more in one shot, you will be awarded the trophy.
Congratulations to Dixiecup for being the first WI member to report winning the trophy.
