How to find the ABSOLUTE BEST webkinz! All factors to ponder about are here! Make your choice the good one!
Are you one of those people who has complete OCD about which webkinz to choose, and why to choose it? Well, if you are, or if you are just a normal person looking for some guidance, you have come to the right place! Welcome to Ksoccer28's Guide Titled:
You have come to the ultimate guide for webkinz choosing and buying!
The First Thing to do: Go and see the previews of the webkinz. First, when you log in, on the newspaper, you click "Webkinz Pets and Stuff".
Fur can definatly influence your decision. If you want to sleep with your webbies, you want to get a softer fur. If you prefer cool, unique webbies, you might want to get a puffy-fluffy fur one or a stringy one.
The Deal With PSI's
A very important thing to consider is the item the webkinz you might want is coming with. It's virtual PSI (AKA Pet Special Item) is the item. It is a special item you can get only with that type of webkinz. Some are better than others, and don't be afraid to let the PSI effect your decision. After all, you may like different things.
Here is where you can see a PSI:
The Webkinz's PSI is located under the picture of the virtual image. In this case, the Tie Dye Frog's PSI would be a kolidescope.
PSI's have trading values here on WI, also. For example, if you get the seal, the PSI might be wanted more than the Golden Retreiver's PSI.
A Fictional Vs Non-Fictional Animal Webkinz
An iportant thing to think about is what suits you better?- A fictional creature webkinz toy or a real animal webkinz toy.
Some of the fictional webkinz are the Unicorn, Pegasus, Pink Pony, Love Frog, and Love Puppy. (Most of these are seasonal or retired, acually. LOL.)
Anyway, if you have a thing for different/magical/pretend animals, these might be good for you.
I know that some of my friends and family definatly prefer the REAL animal webkinz. If you are looking for a "themed" account pet, like a farm animal or a jungle animal, they have many choices.
Luckily, Ganz has so many great webkinz species that you should find one you like.
POTM (Pet Of The Month)
Pet of the month webkinz- everyone wants them, maybe not for the webkinz its self (Well, except COWS4YOU, she was thrilled when the cow was POTM and encouraged people to buy for the cow's sake ) But for the awesome item it comes with.
The POTM adopter (the person who adopts the PSI) gets a loot bag with their POTM. This includes some kinzcash, 500-1000, a W Shop Coupon, and a secret recipe besides the POTM item.
Similar to exclusive items, the POTM items come only with the adoption of the POTM during the month. It is totally random but all prizes are loved.
Here is a favorite POTM :
If you are looking for a spectacular POTM item, I suggest you wait until a pet you like is the POTM.
I made my decision. Now what?
Now, you have made your choice about a webkinz you want to buy. But how the heck will you find one?
On the webkinz homepage, there is a option that says "Store Locator". Click on it.
Select the product you want. (Webkinz!)
Fill in your Country, State, and City.
When the list of stores pops up, call the one nearest to you. Ask if they have the webkinz you want in stock. If they do, ask the price. You can always stop by the store with the amount of money they ask for it. You can also try calling a couple different stores to see if the webkinz you want is cheaper somewhere else than your original store choice.
When you've considered what price and what store is good for you, you can carry through with your plan of buying your new webkinz!
Hopefully, you are happy with your new webkinz. Every time you buy one is a new time to consider what you want- and why you want it. Thank you for your time of reading this. Thanks to Darby for the coolio picture. Thanks to everyone who helped me make this guide better. -Ksoccer28
