Nuts and Bolts teased us back in December about a BIG secret project they were working on and it has finally been revealed. This pair of “Construction” beavers have been very busy redesigning the W-Shop! Upon reveal, February 19th, 2014, the W-Shop will feature all of the Main Categories along the left hand side with subsections listed across the top. With the new subsection listings, ie: “Pedestals”, “Plants”, “Clocks”, “Windows” Bolt assures us that finding items will be much easier. There will also be a section in the W-Shop for adopting pets and you will be able to shop for eStore items!
To celebrate this W-Shop unveiling, Fluffington, the St. Bernard and the richest Webkinz in Kinzville has decided to reward everyone with 2000 free eStore points. When you log in between February 19th and April 1st, 2014, 2000 eStore points will automatically be added to your account!
Also on February 19th, 2014 Ganz will be retiring the Cafe Room Theme and the Sports Room Theme to deluxe only so if you are missing pieces of these themes you had better get shopping!
It's interesting to note that the Town Square Music Stand and the Festive Winter Sapling will go in all four types of rooms: Indoors, Outdoors, Treetop and Underwater. The Elegant Menorah will go only in Indoor rooms; it is an animated item and the candles should begin to light up, one per day, starting on November 27.
The holiday items are usually added in two installments, so watch for more additions on the next maintenance Wednesday. Happy shopping!
On the left is the Creepy Ghostfather Clock, which is for Deluxe members only in the W Shop. However, do not despair as everyone can win one FREE by doing your Halloween Is Coming! Challenge (see the icon in your WW room). In the middle is the Mysterious Ooze Chest, which everyone can buy for 700 kc, and which contains 15 items. On the right, the Haunted Toilet is also a Deluxe item, for 620 kc.
All the other Halloween items in the W Shop are repeats from last year and available to everyone. Happy decorating!

Our Webkinz Insider interior decorators will be interested to know about the upcoming retirement of these two themes: the General Store Theme, introduced to the W Shop in June 2009, and the Country & Western Theme dating back to 2007, will both be retired to Deluxe only, on August 28 2013.
You can see all the General Store items HERE and the Country and Western items HERE, including some interesting history about the legendary Kinz Corral Spittoon.
Save your KinzCash and stock up on the items that appeal to you. You have more than two weeks, until Wednesday August 28 to buy them. You can see all the Room Themes in our WIKI HERE.

In an unannounced move, Ganz has retired two Room Themes from the W Shop and moved them to the Curio Shop. They are the Automotive Theme (also called the Cars Theme) and the Super Hero Theme. Click on their names to see all the items in these two themes.
These themes will no longer be found in the W Shop. But our Webkinz Insider members will be relieved to know that Arte will still be selling the various items randomly, in his Curio Shop. They will be labelled Arte's Favorite, and their prices will fluctuate from 20% above the regular price, to as much as 40% off! Arte's stock changes every hour so watch for bargains!
You can see all the items of these themes, and all other Room Themes, in our WIKI.

Rumors are rife and speculations are flying in Webkinz World following an announcement in Webkinz Newz today! Ganz has announced that one room theme will be retired from the W Shop and moved to Deluxe Only. The room theme being retired, will join the Enchanted Train Station theme as a theme available only to Deluxe members.
This change is expected to take place during the overnight maintenance in Webkinz World, on Wednesday January 9. Let us hope that this will clear some room in the Webkinz World warehouses for a new room theme available to everyone!
*UPDATE*: It's now January 9 and we can confirm that the City Styling Theme, also known as the Mocha Theme, has been moved to a Deluxe Only status. You can still see this entire theme in the W Shop, but like the Enchanted Train theme, you can only purchase it if you are Deluxe. Read more to see a picture of this theme.

Earth Day is April 22nd and Webkinz Insider is holding a contest in honor of it.
Here's a tidbit:
Did you know that more than 20,000,000 Hershey's Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil? All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it. The garbage in a landfill stays for about 30 years.
For this contest, you may use an outdoor or treetop room. We want to see your best looking outdoor / treetop room that can be any kind of scene. This contest starts now and will end on April 22nd @ 10pm KT. Please use only Pet Specific Items, W shop or Curio Shop items (retired items are okay). No Click fest items are allowed. Entries must be posted on the Official Entry Thread, located HERE.
Time for prizes!
First place: Magic Mire Marsh
Second Place: Mangrove Treasure Trove
Third Place: Banana Hammock
Fourth Place: Rainbow Shower
Fifth Place: Rainbow Slide
