Thank you to venus1616, a member of our fourm, for letting us know that the graphics for the Pet Special Foods of the July Webkinz have appeared in Webkinz World. You may remember last month that due to a glitch, the foods appeared for sale in the wShop, without graphics. Those of you who were able to purchase them should now be able to see them in your dock.
Congratulations to Milkshakedear, a member of our forum, for having the first reported adoption of a Spotted Leopard. Just like with the Toucan and Crocodile adoptions we reported earlier, the Spotted Leopard's PSI and PSF are not yet visible in Webkinz World.
UPDATE: Thank you to Milkshakedear for letting us know that the PSI has arrived: Spots N Dots TV
Congratulations to yummee2, a member of our forum, on being the first to report adopting the new July Webkinz: Rottweiler, Toco Toucan, Crocodile, and Spotted Leopard.
yummee2 was able to adopt the Crocodile and the Toucan, but it appears that the programming for these two animals is not fully complete. Neither of their PSIs is showing up in Webkinz World, and their special food items are invisible. She says her retailer was told by Ganz that the programming will be ready to go on July 5th. In the meantime, please enjoy these pictures of "Crikey" and "Toucan Sam".
UPDATE: Thank you to katiepup, a member of our forum, for letting us know that the Crocodile PSI has now appeared. Here is the first picture of the Rockin' Croc Swamp. It's outdoor storage that can hold up to ten items. And thank you to momma501, a member of our staff, for posting the first pictures of the Toucan's Tropical Colors Water Fountain.
You may remember our announcement last week that more KinzStyle clothing for your plushies would be arriving in stores soon. Now we can report that several new virtual clothing items have appeared for sale in the KinzStyle shop: Baseball Uniform Helmet, Baseball Uniform Jersey, Baseball Uniform Pants, Kilt Skirt, Ruffle Skirt, Ruffle Tee, and Webkinz Sparkle Tee.
These items are all exclusive to the KinzStyle shop with one exception. Over the weekend, the Kilt Skirt was available for sale in the wShop briefly, and was for sale in the Curio Shop as recently as Tuesday afternoon. Also, it is worth noting that although the name and the sale price of the new Ruffle Skirt and the old Fun Fiesta Skirt are different, the graphic is exactly the same. read more »
To go along with the many retirements over the past month, Ganz has decided to retire the Webkinz German Shepherd (HM146)!
It can still be ordered by retailers at this point, so you should be able to pick them up in stores for some time, but once they are gone, that'll be it.
In addition, the Webkinz Toco Toucan, which was announced to be retired last week on the Webkinz Retailer site is now listed as "Sold Out" from Ganz. What this means is that many of your retailers will get an additional shipment of Toco Toucans in August if they decided to order extras, but there won't be any more after that!
Continuing our early announcements of the pets for the Webkinz Pet of the Month for all previous months with 100% accuracy, WebkinzInsider.Com has confirmed Ganz's selection for September's Pet of the Month.
September's Pet of the Month will be the Webkinz Bullfrog (HM114)!
Don't forget that the Webkinz Clydesdale (HM139) is the Pet of the Month for August, the Webkinz Cheeky Monkey (HM080) is the Pet of the Month for July, and that Webkinz Insider is your #1 source of information about everything Webkinz! read more »
