If you played the new Video Challenge on Webkinz Newz featuring Kinectimals, an Xbox live game that was released in October of 2011, you might have won a Pet Buddy as your prize. Unlike the plushies and wall decor items that are also prizes you might win, Pet Buddies will not be in your dock nor are they an item that you can place in your room.
So how exactly do you find and use your Pet Buddy? Click "Read more" to find out!

Webkinz Newz is letting us know about another new Zum contest! Watch this weekend for a Sweet zum to appear on the Webkinz Newz site for a chance to win either a Sweet Zumbuddy bomber jacket or possibly a rare Zorbo zum! Good luck zum catchers!!
Ganz has announced that they will be adding a line of code-only "Sweet Zums" to the Ganz eStore. Zike, Zilma, Zorbo, and Zofina are coming to Webkinz World. It appears that some new items and games will also be arriving soon. There haven't been any changes yet, but we'll be keeping an eye on things.
The next Webkinz Newz contest is scheduled to start on Saturday, September 11th. For this contest, Ganz wants to hear in 1000 characters or less "what makes you the best babysitter." Five lucky winners will each receive a "Zike" Zumbuddy.
If you've been having problems adding one of the new July Zumbuddies to your account, you're not alone. Over the past couple days, we have been getting scattered reports of players getting stuck on the "Loading Pallete" when they try to access the Zumbuddy screen. We've been tracking this problem in our Glitch Section, HERE.
Ganz made the following announcement @webkinz today: We've found issues with the latest set of Zum Buddies...We'll be fixing these today.
Ganz has also announced that they will be correcting the online Signature Deer picture. If you've adopted a new Signature Deer on your account, you've been seeing a picture of the regular Deer instead of the Signature Deer. This image problem should be corrected soon.
