Webkinz has recently updated their Free Account program for new webkinz users. Previously, any user who opened a new free account could adopt the Webkinz Mutt or Domestic Cat.
With this new update any user who opens a brand new Webkinz account will be able to select one of nine eStore pets to adopt. The nine eStore pets include:
The Pink Zebra, Ice Fawn, Leonberger, Afghan Hound, Floppy Eared Bunny, Marshmallow Chipmunk, Sun Fox, Wolf, and Cotton Top Tamarin.
Members may be interested to know that previously Pink Zebra has only been availble through an eStore promotion
. Furthermore, the Ice Fawn
is a seasonal winter pet and only available once a year (providing it is released by the eStore). The Leonberger, Afghan Hound, Floppy Eared Bunny, Marshmallow Chipmunk, Sun Fox, Wolf, and Cotton Top Tamerin are all virtual pets
and available to purchase by members exclusively through the eStore
(note that some may not be currently available as the pet selection rotates through the year).
New users who create Free Accounts are limited in their participation throughout Webkinz World. These accounts are unable to access Kinzpost, the trading room, the items they can purchase, how many rooms they can create, and more. Members can remove these limitations
through the purchase and adoption of any other Webkinz pet, or the purchase of a deluxe membership through the eStore.
