Webkinz Insider Members Wonder About "Stone Age Car"
Back on June 2nd, Ganz announced that a new Rare item, the Stone Age Car, had been added to the Webkinz World system. Although it is impossible to predict in advance when Arte is going to have a specific Rare item for sale in the Curio Shop, many of you have noticed that there seems to be something different about this Rare introduction, and that is causing you to ask questions.
Normally when a new Rare item is introduced to Webkinz World, it quickly starts showing up as a bonus gift in some new pet adoptions, usually within minutes of Webkinz World coming back up from site maintenance. In the case of the Stone Age Car, it has been over three weeks since the announcement and we haven't had a single report of a member getting the Car as an adoption gift.
At this point, we are not certain what is going on with the Stone Age Car, but we will let you know as soon as more information is revealed. In the mean-time, keep an eye on the Rare Item Notice at the top of the Webkinz Insider forum for the latest Curio Shop information.
UPDATE: A number of you have pointed out that at least one other "rare item" has had a similar history. Back in January 2008 Ganz announced that a "Rockin' Mohawk" would be coming to the Curio Shop (Click HERE for Story). The item eventually became the "Rockinz Mohawk" a prize on the Wheel of Wishes, but as of today, it has never been for sale in the Curio Shop. Hopefully this won't happen with the Stone Age Car.
