From Webkinz Insider Wiki
Each year on February 14th, players logging on to Webkinz World receive a special holiday gift. These gifts typically include an Object and two holiday Foods. They started awarding Valentine's Gifts in 2007.
Ganz sends every account in Webkinz World a special Valentine Card. These messages all arrive on Valentine's Day and you can see your card by accessing your Kinzpost Mailbox.
- Main Article: Valentine Bouquet 2011
A new Valentine feature was added to Webkinz World in 2011. From February 7th to February 14th, players searched for Cinnamon the Hamster in Kinzville Park. Cinnamon gave out one rose, each a different color, in a vase each day. Players collecting all the roses at the Kinzville Park and also collecting a red rose from the Webkinz Newz site received the grand prize bouquet.
Pictures of these items can be found in the (Picture Gallery) Kinzville Park.
Valentine Bouquets did not reappear in 2012.
There have been only a few seasonal items for Valentine's day in the wShop. The first was the Cinnamon Hearts. The Cinnamon Hearts were sold in the wShop in February 2007 and 2008, but not in 2009. The Cinnamon Hearts have also been included in the Valentine Gift Bags for 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010.
Seasonal eStore Items
In 2009, Ganz introduced two seasonal items at the Ganz eStore for February: the Cupid's Shimmering Spring and the Sweetheart Symphony Piano. Both items are animated, and the Piano plays part of the song "Pachelbel's Canon".
In 2010, Cupid's Shimmering Spring and the Sweetheart Symphony Piano both returned. Ganz also added several new items: Love Letters Hat, Sweet Surprise Costume, Heart on Sleeve Shirt and Pants, Dearly Devoted Dress, and Love Bird Lake.
In 2011, Ganz added several new Valentine items to the eStore: Valentine Cupcakes, Teddy Bear Stone Cherub, Sweet Sounds Harp, Precious Pink Tree, Passion Pink Dress, Passionate Pea Coat, Love Spell Hat, and Love Puppy Float.
Also in 2010, the Love Lion was officially retired.
In 2011, the Love Kitten returned and was joined by the Love Puffin.
In 2012, Ganz introduced the Eluvant and the Sweetheart Monster. The Eluvant is a plush pet sold during the Valentine Season, and the Sweetheart Monster is an estore pet sold during the Valentine season.
In 2013, Ganz introduced the Lovely Panda. The Lovely Panda was an exclusive eStore pet sold in February 2013.
History of the Love Kitten
The rumors of a Love Kitten date back to February 2008 when a picture of a cat covered in hearts (shown above) appeared in Quizzy's Calendar. There was lots of speculation by Webkinz players on what this picture might mean, but none of it was confirmed by Ganz.
Then, due to a glitch with the Ganz eStore, for a few hours on June 4th, 2008, several items were made visible that were not supposed to be offered for sale. One of those items was a Love Kitten that was marked "Out of Stock" and could not be purchased. Ganz quickly fixed the glitch, but not before word had spread through the online Webkinz community.
Shortly after correcting the glitch, Ganz contacted Webkinz Insider to request that the front page story showing pictures of the items be removed. Ganz also asked WI to "make it clear that those items are not available, will not be available soon, and may never be available."
For 2010, Ganz released a Love Frog KinzKlip. The KinzKlip came as a package deal attached to a Webkinz Love Frog. Like all other KinzKlips, this item's feature code gives players access to Zumwhere.
In 2011, Ganz released a Mazin' Hamster named "Cinnamon" and a Love Puppy KinzKlip.
