Pictures of all the new Webkinz, future Webkinz and upcoming Webkinz for 2010 and 2011 on Webkinz Insider. These are all confirmed new Webkinz that will be available in Webkinz World in the near future.
All day on Thursday reports were pouring in from Webkinz Insider members who were lucky enough to get messages and prizes by KinzPost from several of the Webkinz World Hosts. Most of the prizes have been wShop objects, Trading Card items, and KinzStyle clothing, but there are also eight brand new outfits that have never been seen before!
To see pictures of all of the special prizes, and to learn more about making friends with the Webkinz Hosts, check out the Webkinz Insider WIki. At this point we don't know exactly what a player needs to send to the hosts to get a special prize in return, but we are busy collecting data, and if a pattern is found, we will bring it to you here.
Don't forget that there are also two MyPage badges that can be earned from the Hosts. The Best Friends Badge is awarded after a player gets all eight Hosts as friends on their KinzPhone. The Pen Pals Badge is awarded after a player sends KinzPost messages to the Hosts.
NOTE: It is NOT necessary to send a large or expensive gift in order to get something in return. Some members have reported getting special clothing items from just sending a small note.
Over the past few days, many Webkinz players have been delighted to receive responses and gifts from the eight Webkinz Hosts who can now be added as friends. One gift in particular, though, has them a bit confused.
Several Webkinz Insider members have reported receiving a Spree Bonus Roll from Amanda Panda. It is not clear at this point what players are supposed to do with the roll. So far, it seems that the red dice just sits in a player's dock where it cannot be used, sold, traded, or sent by KinzPost. We are tracking this issue in the Glitch Report section of our forum.
This appears to be similar to the glitch affecting the Blue Chihuahua Dice, Green Cow Dice, and Yellow Googles Dice that some players have sitting in their docks. Those dice were all awarded through system glitches and, although they can be traded, nothing else can be done with them.
UPDATE (Sunday, 2:35pm ET): Moments ago Ganz released the following statement: The Spree Rolls received from Amanda Panda will be fixed shortly. Spree Rolls will appear in the game once the issue has been resolved.
