Arrow BREAKING NEWS: Kinz Post Changes, New POTM Item, Login Change in Webkinz World!

Click the image to open in full size.Earlier this afternoon, Webkinz World was down for about a half an hour, and Ganz performed some maintenance. When it came back online, the Christmas items were missing from the W Shop! The only item left is the "First Snow Christmas Tree", so we hope that all of you had a chance to stock up on all the Holiday items while you could!

Along with this departure of the Holiday items, Ganz gave us a new Webkinz Pet of the Month item, which can be seen to the left. It's called the "Magic 9 Ball", which is just like the "Magic 8 Ball" that we all know and love, except it's yellow!

[... Read More ...]

{mosgoogle center}

We gave our "Magic 9 Ball" a few shakes by clicking on it, and here are a few screenshots of the messages that it outputs when you click on it. My personal favorite is the last one!

Kinz Post Changes
One of the major changes that was noticed by all was a change to Kinz Post. The "Free" wrapping paper in Kinz Post is now gone, so you can only pick fancy wrapping paper that costs extra. From what we can gather, it appears to be in preparation for the Webkinz School Supplies, that are rumored to come with codes that you can use for "special" wrapping paper in Kinz Post.

Login Changes
Also this afternoon, which was near Webkinz.Com's peak time, many noticed a new login "popup" after you enter your username and password. This short wait is probably designed to help with the extreme user loads that Webkinz World sees every day! Once the peak time had passed, this "popup" no longer appeared, so it may be something that Ganz was testing, or only puts in place when the number of users playing in Webkinz World is very high.

A "magic 9 ball" -- I did not catch that new addition to the Pet of the Month items before now. It is cute!

Everybody with a room of the trading card theme furniture will need one of these. Clever choice using the yellow 9 ball -- it goes well with either the deep brown Game Pieces or the blue/yellow Trading Card furnishings!

the magic nine ball looks really neat. i can't wait to see now what i get on next potm adoption.
the next log in pop up looks interesting, unless of course you get one that says "your play tme will start in (ex..) 30 min." but at least you would have an idea. if you close the log out screen...do you lose your place in line??? or do you have to keep it up???

Just a heads up that I was able to purchase a few of the Christmas items that are missing in the W shop, in the curio shop. So you might want to check and see if this is still going to be the case. My guess is that they will catch this soon, so be on the lookout. They may be a little more kc but hey if you missed them you might still be able to get them. I saw a tree and the green outfit pants and some other stuff. (can't remember exactly) Good Luck to those who still need these items!

My plain paper is there and I have 10 others too. Where those there before and I never noticed that there was an arrow to get to them or are they new. Someone sent me a package yesterday with the striped stocking paper and it was cool.
