Webkinz Newz is announcing the Retirement of the following Exclusive Items: the Elephant Statue
, the Wading Pool
and the Farm Tractor
. These three Exclusive items will be retired on February 1st
, so get them while you can!
You can obtain Exclusive items in five different manners:
- at the Wish Factory, in exchange for Wish Tokens: both the Farm Tractor and the Wading Pool are worth 10 Tokens.
- at the Wish Factory, make a Wish of the Day for a chance at obtaining your wish
- as part of a Webkinz Pet Adoption
- as a prize on the Super Wheel
- as a trade
The controversy surrounds the announcement of the Elephant Statue
as an impending retirement. The statue pictured in the Webkinz Newz announcement is the Stone Elephant Statue
. This exclusive was introduced in 2005 and retired in May 2006. In April 2009, it was offered for purchase at the eStore as a Replica
There is no item in Webkinz World with the exact name of "Elephant Statue".
It is not known what kind of error is involved here. Can a retired exclusive be retired again? Or does Ganz mean the Elephant Fountain
, another current exclusive?
Stay tuned for clarification of this mystery.
UPDATE (1/14 @ 10:30pm EST): Webkinz Newz has updated their original announcement. The image of the Elephant Statue has been removed, and replaced with the Elephant Fountain. The Fountain will retire along with the other exclusives mentioned above on February 1st.
