Ganz has announced a new feature in Mazin' Hamsters called Hamster Hamlet. This new feature will allow your Hamsters to play freely in a huge open world. Explore freely or try a challenge and earn Mazin' Moolah.
Thank you to meatloafbandit and Oddmeister for these images from their accounts.

A special congratulations to Webkinz Insider member Emma8432 on her winning entry!!
Ganz has added a new maze set to the Mazin' Hamster area called Tricky Treasure. This set is made up of six mazes: three easy, two medium, and one hard. Players completing all of the mazes in this set will be rewarded with a Tricky Treasure Trophy.
Ganz has announced that the Floor Flag FolliesMazin' Hamster Maze Set will be "locked away" on Thursday, November 25. If you haven't yet competed the mazes and won your trophy, you've got one week left. The Floor Flag Follies mazes were originally added to Webkinz World in July 2010.
This is the second maze set to be removed from Webkinz World, and at this point we do not know if/when it will come back. The first set to be removed was the Halloween Hunt set.
Hopefully the programmers at Ganz will be able to sort this problem out quickly. We will be tracking the status of this issue in the Glitch Report section of our forum and will let you know as soon as any new information becomes available.
UPDATE (Nov 22): Ganz has announced that these items will return on Thursday, November 25.
UPDATE (Nov 26th): We can now confirm that these items have returned to the Mazin' Hamsters section of Webkinz World. However, these items have returned at an increase cost.
During a brief maintenance this morning, a new feature was added to the Mazin' Hamster area. It's called the "Key Craze" and it can be found in the Hamster Hamlet. In this Daily Activity, players hunt around the Hamlet for glowing keys. Each time a key is found, the player takes it back to a treasure chest in the middle of the hamlet (a red arrow shows the way). If the key doesn't fit, the player looks for another key. If the key does fit, the player is awarded a fantastic prize. Hurry, this is a timed event. Shown above is Zap's Plasma Ball.
To see the other eleven prizes, please visit WI's WIki.
UPDATE: Based on member reports, there appears to be a problem with the Snowflake's Snowglobe prize. For some reason, this prize is NOT appearing in player docks. Members have had to contact Ganz directly to have the prize manually added to their accounts.
A new "virtual only" Mazin' Hamster is expected to arrive in Webkinz World soon. His name is "Chili" and many of you have already spotted him running around in Ganz' latest video advertisement for the Mazin' Hamster area.
Every week Ganz adds new mazes and features to the Mazin' Hamster area. It is the fastest growing area of Webkinz World, and it has many Webkinz players totally hooked.
