    Wednesday Updates August 17

    The Adventure Park launches today!

    In case you're confused, the Adventure Park is a new section of Webkinz World. It contains several cool quests and exclusive prizes.
    You can only get into the Park with a Pink Pony, Spotted Frog, Spotted Leopard, Chimpanzee, Mud Hippo, or Koala (Lil'Kinz Koalas included). 

    The only downside to this new feature is that if you already have one of the above pets and you adopted it before August 3, 2011, then you can't do any of the Adventure Park quests. 
    Complete with a pretty loading screen. Shiny~

    And this is just a very small fraction of the place. Lil'Kinz Koalas can get into the Park, too.
    Keep in mind that the Park doesn't run very well if you have a lot of other programs or tabs running at the same time.

    For 12,500 eStore points (12.50 in US dollars) you can buy any of the Adventure Park Pets from the eStore, in online-version only form.

     The Second Half of the Superfan Theme is in the W-Shop!
    This includes:
    Sleepy Superfan Bed---1200 KC
    Superfan Toy Chest---450 KC, holds 8 items
    Superfan Toy Shelf---150 KC
    Webkinz Fanatic Floor Lamp---275 KC
    Webkinz Nut Nightstand---300 KC
    Webkinz Superfan Dresser---525 KC, holds 8 items

    The Pelican POTM Video is Online!
    And we appear to have some sort of Fruit Salad Fish in the background.
    September's POTM, the Pelican, sings "Let's Go Fishin'".

    Have you ever been in webkinz world when you see two other players fighting or being mean? Well I have and now I am showing you what I have seen. If you have seen fights or meaness please comment or show us a pic.


    I was in the restaurant room having fun when all the sudden all this was popping back and forth on my screen and luckily I got photos of it.

    Candy Kinz Sale!

    From August 12 to August 14, there will be a sweet deal at the Ganz eStore!
    For Deluxe membership owners only, all eight of the Candy Kinz pets will be for sale, with the added bonus of...a Gingerbread Buggy!

    Yep, buy any one Candy Kinz pet, and get a Gingerbread buggy at no extra cost.

     Okay, now look at the eStore and Deluxe signs on the poster. Are those new pets I spy?

    On the Deluxe sign, it looks like we have a...Candy Hearts Puffin, and a Waffles Walaby? On the eStore sign, it looks like a Candy Apple Camel, and either a Skittles Fish or a Rainbow Taffy Fish.
    What do you think these pets could be?

    Webkinz World Working Again+KC+ Closed

    Webkinz World, Webkinz Newz, and Ganz eStore are all working again. 

    Webkinz players could log in again at 1 AM, but not all of them successfully. As the day went on, it seems as if more and more problems are being fixed.

    Kinz Chat+ is CLOSED.
    Ganz stated on their Twitter feed about an hour ago, that,
    We're taking KC+ down for now. Our monitoring tools aren't working properly, and we've got to be safe. Will let you know when it's back. 
    However, just plain Kinz Chat is still working.

    Webkinz World Currently Down

    The Webkinz World, Webkinz Newz, and Ganz eStore sites are all currently down.

    Do not panic; this is not because Webkinz is ending.

    Ganz has stated on their Twitter feed that,

    Our server host has had a major power failure. Currently bringing them back up. Could take an hour or more. We appreciate your patience.

    So far, five hours after that update, the sites are still not working. We will just have to be patient until everything starts working again.

    Webkinz Mystic Moon Bear Promotion

    Remember the Webkinz Mystic Moon Bear, which we wrote about in this post?
    Well, the way to go about getting one has been revealed...

    Purchase 75,000 eStore points and get a bonus Mystic Moon Bear adoption code free.

    The advantage to this is that with the eStore points, you can get several other pets.
    The disadvantage?
    This is the only way to get the Mystic Moon Bear, as of this report.

    Quite a Few Updates Wednesday, August 3

    There were quite a few updates this Wednesday in Webkinz World.


    The eStore (the one already in WW) has been updated. 

    You can now buy virtual Mazin' Hamsters, pets, charms and figurines directly from the eStore in Webkinz World. 

    There's a new theme at the W-Shop!
    Come to think of it, there's a new theme every month. 
    Anyhow, this theme is the Super Fan Theme. 

    I really do like the theme--it's like an upgraded version of the Trading Card themes. What do you think?
    Crazy for Webkinz Carpet---525 KC
    Devoted to Webkinz Sofa---950 KC
    Superfan Study Station---420 KC
    Superfan Swivel Chair---175 KC
    Superfan Wallpaper--125 KC
    Webkinz World Widescreen---1225 KC
    Superfan Flooring---150 KC
    The second half should appear during the next major update, which is August 17.

    The Rooster POTM Video is now working at Webkinz Newz. 
    Now you can listen to the August 2011 Pet of the Month, the Rooster, sing "It's A Beautiful Day" at Webkinz Newz. Afterward, answer some trivia to win a Farmer's Wife Straw Hat for your pet. 

    5 new recipes have been added. 
    They are Mataruck-Lucks, Glopsrisma, Keeleebabs, Wanapaneer, and Worblewraps. 2 are made on the stove, 2 in the blender, and one on the sandwich maker. 

    There are 5 new Adoption Exclusives at the Wish Factory. 
    They are the Speedy Scooter, Enchanted Garden Fountain, Happily Ever After Cake, Wild Water Ski, and Bubble Wrap Chair. For some reason, however, the Bubble Wrap Chair only goes in underwater rooms, not indoor rooms. Ganz has stated that they are looking into the issue. 

    In additional news, for some reason, the Yellow Springtime Chick is available at the eStore again. 
    What is strange about this is that the Chick is a Seasonal eStore Pet, last sold in March 2011. Also, a Blue Springtime Chick and Purple Springtime Chick were for sale also. This time, just the Yellow Chick is for sale. 

    And, last but not least...
    The PSI and PSF for all the September 2011 Pets have been revealed!
    In a surprise move, they are all revealed at the same time! 
    First, the Brilliant Bandit...
    Eh. The dress is cool, but I'm still not liking the sequins.

    ...And then the Dodo Bird.
    I love the PSI! Clever.
    And now the Harmony Puppy!
    The pet's still cute as ever!
    Now, the Signature pet for the month, the Black Footed Ferret.
    The ferret looks really cool, and the PSI looks nifty!

    And then we have a pet that wasn't announced previously: The Big Top Elephant. This is a Virtual-Only pet, and we haven't been told how one would go about getting one.
