December is nearly over and January is just around the corner.  Can you believe how the past year has flown by!  A new month in Webkinz World means new monthly activities:
 
  • Pet of the Month Ribbons - On the 1st ad 15th of every month, floating Pet of the Month Ribbons come to Webkinz World.  Click on a blue ribbon to get a chocolate version to feed to your pet.
  • Pet of the Month - It's a new month, and there's a new Pet of the Month.  For January, the POTM is the Webkinz Schnauzer.  Adopt a new Schnauzer any day in January to receive a special POTM Gift Bag and to receive a free download of the Schnauzer's song "Moustache Louie".  All Schnauzer owners will be able to participate in special POTM activities.
  • Caring Valley Tree - There's a new tree coming to the Caring Valley.  Players entering the Caring Valley code off of specially tagged Webkinz, and planting the required number of saplings in January, will receive a Party Palm Tree that they can customize and display in their Webkinz' yards.
  • Birthstone Pet - The Birthstone Pet for the month of January is going to be the Garnet Rover. It will be on sale for the full month of January. Also, If you'd like to pick up one of the Birthstone Pets from 2009, visit the Ganz eStore on December 30th or 31st when they will ALL be for sale.
  • Deluxe Membership Gifts - Those of you who have signed up for a Deluxe Membership will receive a new Deluxe Gift Box in January.  The special clothing item for the month of January is a Snowsuit.
 
Thank you to WI member thinksharp for this picture of her Schnauzer wearing the new Snowsuit.

Webkinz wShop to Stop Selling Christmas Items on January 5th

webkinz cheatsOver the weekend Ganz made an official announcement regarding the Christmas Theme items for sale in the wShop.  Instead of being for sale until January 6th, as many of the items say in their descriptions, they will "only be available until January 5".
 
So, if you have some last-minute decorating to do, or if there are any items from this year's theme that you've just got to have, it's time to get over to the wShop and spend some KinzCash.  From year to year the seasonal items in the wShop change, and there is no way of predicting which items will return and which items may be gone forever.
 

New Arcade Tournament Game Coming Soon: Duck Crossing

webkinz cheats
 
Ganz has announced that a brand new game will be coming to the Arcade Tournament Area soon: Duck Crossing.  The objective of this game is to get your Duck across the pond before your opponent does.   Both players take turns moving their ducks and placing "reeds" (to block the other player).  The first player to get all of the way across the pond is the winner!  This game is expected to appear in Webkinz World in the next few weeks.
 

Thanks for a great year, Ganz!

Santakinz Has Finished Delivering Gifts to ALL Accounts!

webkinz cheatsGanz has announced that Santakinz has finished delivering the Christmas Gifts to EVERY account in Webkinz World, even to players who were not able to log on during Christmas Day.  Remember, this year, you must click on "Get Items From Storage" to get your gift to show up in your dock.  Unlike with previous Holidays, you will NOT get a pop-up announcing that your gift has been delivered.
 
We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday and is looking forward to a bright New Year.

Webkinz Insider Member Solves Domestic Cat Mystery!

webkinz cheats
 
Back in August of this year, we brought you news that a Webkinz Domestic Cat had been added to Webkinz World (click HERE for story).  At that time, all we could tell you was that the Cats were being spotted in the Clubhouse, but we couldn't tell you how players were able to adopt them.  Today, it appears that they mystery has been solved.
 
Thank you to Webkinz Insider member 12Mitchp for these pictures showing his adoption of a Webkinz "Cat"!  Here is his explanation of how he was able to get the option to adopt this pet:
 
I was going to adopt a new Webkinz today when I found a third option which said "try a limited account".  So I pressed it expecting to going to the Webkinz demo when it transfered me to this new thing on the normal server and it had an option to either adopt the domestic cat which is actually called the cat or the mutt.  You get to name it and all, but it has limited access to 5 games, a few hourlies, and lots more.
 
As you may remember the Webkinz Demo was a feature that was added to Webkinz World in November of 2008 for people in countries that do not have Webkinz retailers (outside of the United States and Canada) to test out Webkinz out for one day before they order one online (click HERE for story).  In that demo, people could adopt a pet called a "Mutt".
 
Unlike the Webkinz Mutt, which comes with a copy of the Webkinz Dragster as a Pet Specific Item and comes with a copy of the wShop Hamburger as a Pet Special Food, the Domestic Cat does not come with a PSI or a PSF.
 
At this point we are not certain why some some people are getting the option to select the Domestic Cat when they sign up for a Demo account and some people just get the Webkinz Mutt.  We'll let you know as soon as we learn more.

Ganz Releases More Information on Christmas Gift Delivery

webkinz cheats
 Webkinz Newz update at 11pm EST:

With his longest working day of the year finally coming to an end, Santakinz has sent us another update on the status of his long journey. As exhausted as he is, his trek across Webkinz World continues. The snow storm which slowed him down refused to let up, and he has been delivering presents well through the night. Many members have already received their gifts, but there are still some who have not yet been visited yet.

If you haven’t received your gift, Santakinz wants you to know that he will be personally delivering every last present, and that the wait shouldn’t be much longer. Because of the delay, Santakinz will automatically be placing the presents right in your dock, meaning you’ll find your presents waiting for you the next time you log in after he has visited your room. You may also need to retrieve your items from storage through the dock to see your present.

We here at Ganz would like to apologize for this unfortunate turn of events. We’ve been working long and hard through Christmas Day to ensure that everyone gets their presents, and we appreciate your patience. With the snow storm finally letting up, it shouldn’t be long before Santakinz has completed his journey and can finally retire to his workshop for another year. He’ll have deserved his sleep once he does.

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day, and we look forward to seeing you all enjoying your presents this weekend in Webkinz World!
