Some of the lil kinz were programmed wrong by Ganz, so when you enter them, you get a Big Kinz virtual pet.

It's been happening to TONS of people. If you don't mind the Big Kinz, then enjoy! You saved a couple bucks. If you reallllly wanted a lil, and don't like the big kinz, then call or email Ganz and complain. They might just issue you a new code for the lil kinz.

I'd suggest contacting Ganz. They'd probably want to know about the glitch, even if you don't mind the big webkinz. Congrats on your new webkinz, by the way!!!

Ganz is familiar with the problem, some of mine were little last month and some were big, not sure how the codes got mixed up like they did but it happened. Enjoy the Big Kinz I have been trying to find another and can't . I think it is cute putting him by my horses out in the yard and he is bigger then some of them.

well first id like ot say welcome to webkinzinsider! youll have a great time here and its really fun!




second there was a post on the front page about this. i went looking through the pages to find it and i copied and pasted it here for you so here you go





Here at Webkinz Insider we have been getting scattered reports of members adopting Lil Kinz St. Bernards and having Large Webkinz St. Bernards show up on their accounts. For some members, this was an exciting surprise since the Large Webkinz St. Bernard is retired. For others who really wanted the Lil Kinz, it was a disappointment.

Thank you to Webkinz Insider member chabs, part of the mystery has been solved. chabs collected information from members who had the "misfit" tags and from members who had the regular tags. She discovered one very important difference between the different types of tags. Underneath the barcode is a very tiny number. On the tags that turned out to be Lil Kinz the number was "B39". On the tags that turned out to be Large Webkinz, the number was "B48-A".

Those of you who are planning on picking up a St. Bernard may want to take a close look at the tag before you bring it home to make sure you are getting the Webkinz you want. Just keep in mind that we can't predict what, if anything, Ganz will do with the programming for these codes in the future. They could all go back to being Lil Kinz without warning.

UPDATE (08/22/200: Thank you to WI Member RedBear for letting us know about a third type of Lil Kinz St. Bernard tag. This one has "B43-A" under the barcode. This tag is correctly programmed as a Lil Kinz. So, there is still only one type of "misfit" tag: the one with "B48-A" on it.
