Ms. Birdy in the Clubhouse
For the 2009 season, Ganz added a brand new feature to Webkinz World, the "Count Down to Christmas". In this feature, Ms. Birdy visited the Clubhouse in the days leading up to Christmas, December 14th through December 25th, and passed out fantastic Christmas-themed prizes. One gift per account, per day, for twelve days.
How it Worked
When Ms. Birdy appeared in a Clubhouse room, there was a faint "Jingle Bell" sound. Players clicked on her to receive a gift. Then, the wreath will opened up on the screen showing the gift filled in. After the wreath was closed, the pet would say say "MERRY CHRISTMAS".
Players could only get one gift per day from Ms. Birdy. Players clicking on her more than one time in the same day got this message:
If a player wasn't able to find Ms. Birdy on a particular day, the spot for that day on the player's wreath was filled in with a snowflake. It was NOT possible to go back and get prizes from days past.
Tracking Ms. Birdy
Webkinz Insider members worked hard to find Ms. Birdy, to share information, and to determine what "pattern" she was on. All of thos work took place in a special tracking thread in the forum. As soon as a pattern was discovered, it was posted on the front page of Webkinz Insider and in the first post of the tracking thread.
Unlike with the Trick or Treat Ghost & Hamster, it was possible to "jump" into a room AFTER Ms. Birdy has already appeared to get a gift from her. Players just had to be quick on the color zone change! After someone posted that they've seen Ms. Birdy, players would dash over there quickly to click on her.
Webkinz "Twelve Days of Christmas"
The Webkinz "Twelve Days of Christmas" song has one verse for each of Ms. Birdy's gifts. Ganz revealed the song, one verse at a time, during the event.
