Earlier this month Ganz announced that they are releasing three brand new product lines for Webkinz World in April 2009. They are Kinz Klips, Signature Series, and Caring Valley. Because there seems to be a lot of confusion regarding what the feature codes for these items will unlock in Webkinz World, here is a quick summary:
Kinz Klips. These little key-chain like Webkinz come with a code that will unlock a new area of the Magical Forest called "Zumwhere". In this feature, members search for and collect "Zums" to win virtual prizes. So far there are six different Klips: Penguin, Monkey, Panda, Whimsy Dragon, Kangaroo, and Chihuahua.

Signature Series. First there were Webkinz pets, then there were Lil Kinz pets, now there are Webkinz Signature pets. Just like the other types of Webkinz, these plushies come with a code that can be used to adopt them in Webkinz World. With the adoption, members will get a Wish Token, an "eStore-quality pet specific item", and an exclusive item from the new Signature Theme. April's pet is the Signature Panda. May's Pet is the Signature Chimpanzee. Click HERE for more info.
Caring Valley. Just like with the wCares Lil Kinz, these Webkinz will come with a special tag and code. This code will unlock a new area called "The Caring Valley". For each code entered, members will receive four trees that they can plant, and care for, in the valley. Also like the wCares pets, part of the proceeds from the sale of these plushies will go to support the Webkinz Foundation, a Ganz charity. So far the Webkinz Panda is the only pet involved in this program. UPDATE: Ganz has announced that Caring Valley Poodles will also be released. Click HERE for more info.
