Alvin & the Chipmunks Movie Advertisements
From Webkinz Insider Wiki

In December 2007, a series of third-party advertisements started running in Webkinz world to promote the Alvin and the Chipmunks Movie. The movie started on December 14th, 2007. The advertisements ran from December 1st to ???
Clicking on the advertisements either opened a slightly larger advertisement, awarded the player some Waffles to feed to their Webkinz, or awarded the player one of three Chipmunk Costumes.
|Alvin Costume||Simon Costume||Theodore Costume||Waffles|
- The Alvin Costume consists of three parts, the Cool Chipmunk Mask, the Red Full-Length Hoodie, and the Toy Electric Guitar. The Toy Electric Guitar should not be confused with the "Toy Guitar" that is sold in the wShop.
- The Simon Costume consists of two parts, the Chipmunk Mask, and the Blue Full-Length Hoodie.
- The Theodore Costume consists of two parts, the Cool Chipmunk Mask and the Green Full-Length Hoodie.
- The Waffles from the advertisements are exactly the same as the Waffles sold in the wShop.
After this Click-to-Win event ended, many members speculated that the costumes would show up in the Curio Shop, just like happened with the Bee Movie Advertisement costumes. Unfortunately, this did not happen.
Then, there was some speculation that Ganz might bring them back for the promotion of "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel" in December 2009. Instead, it looks like the production company decided to spend their advertising dollars in Build-a-Bearville giving players there an "Alvin Dance Move".
UPDATE: Webkinz World got involved in the promotion of this movie for the DVD release on March 30th, 2010. For information on this promotion, please see Chipettes Movie Advertisements.
