Spooky the Mazin' Hamster Not Yet Programmed in Webkinz World *UPDATE*
Over the past few days we have been getting reports here at Webkinz Insider from players who have purchased "Spooky" the Mazin' Hamster but who are unable to activate him in Webkinz World. The reason for this is that "Spooky" isn't scheduled for official release until September 7th, and the feature codes for these pets have not yet been programmed into the system.
According to their agreements with Ganz, retailers are not supposed to sell Webkinz products before their official release dates. If you shop at a retailer that puts Webkinz out early, be prepared to have the feature codes not work in Webkinz World right away. Generally, the programming for new items is added just a few days before their official release dates.
UPDATE: Ganz has just released pictures of the virtual "Spooky", Spooky's Ball, and Spooky's Tube Design. Ganz has also announced that they went ahead and updated the system with the "Spooky" programming this morning. If you have one of these adorable Hamsters on-hand, you can now enter his feature code and get racing!
