Ever wondered what would happen if you crossed Webkinz with Zhu Zhu pets? Well, you might find out.. We've come across some very interesting information about a significant upcoming feature in Webkinz World -- Amazing Hamsters!
We aren't sure if this will be the final name that Ganz settles on, but the feature is currently in development and tentatively slated for release into Webkinz World in July! According to our sources, there will be 6 plushes of varying colors to start with, and certain colors will be more limited in availability to retailers making some rarer than others. They are expected to be around the same size as Zum Buddies, and we are unsure about the approximate cost.
The best description we've heard is to imagine Zhu Zhu pets within Webkinz World. You will be able to build mazes and tunnels by adding different pieces and the Amazing Hamsters will run through the mazes and obstacles! We assume that the Hamster area will be a separate section of Webkinz World, like Zumwhere, however Ganz could surprise us and have them running through our rooms.
UPDATE (May 26th): Ganz has released a "teaser" image of the six hamsters (shown above).
We expect that these new Hamsters will be available for order very soon. As soon as they are, you will be able to purchase them on pre-sale at Webkinz Insider's partner store, Ameriwade
