Emperor Dragon Retirement Event Rescheduled for January 26!

Click the image to open in full size.
 
Owners of the retiring Emperor Dragon were disappointed this past Sunday (Jan 5), when their Retirement event was mistakenly programmed for the Pet Of The Month instead (the Arctic Polar Bear). They were unable to receive the retirement prize of the Alyssa House Tapestry.
 
But all is well. Thanks to DragonforceFan3 for letting us know that Ganz will reschedule this event for Sunday January 26, 2014.
 
If you own an Emperor Dragon, don't forget to mark your calendars!

Snow Leopard Retires on January 12!

 
 
 
The next pet to retire will be the Snow Leopard.

The retirement weekend in question is Saturday January 11 and Sunday January 12 2014.

A
Retirement Party will be held on those dates, including a Count the Sailboats Game on the Saturday and some other special activity for owners of the Snow Leopard on the Sunday.

The Snow Leopard is regular-sized plush Webkinz, first released in November 2010. Be very careful not to confuse him with the Signature Snow Leopard released this past summer in August 2013! There are eight other leopards: the Icy Mist Leopard, the Rockerz Leopard, the
Endangered Clouded Leopard, the Candy Leopard, the Strawberry Cloud Leopard, the Spotted Leopard and the two who started the leopard trend: the plain old Leopard, of which there are two sizes: the regular Webkinz Leopard from Jan 2007 and the Lil' Kinz Leopard from Feb 2008.

Detective Cap Recipe Revealed By Webkinz Newz!

 
Webkinz Newz is revealing to its readers the open secret of the Detective Cap Recipe (also called the Detective Hat).  However, this is a well-known recipe which has been solved now for almost 4 years by Webkinz Insider member mlachance9. Above you can see the screenshot taken by mlachance9 when solving this recipe on February 10, 2010. Combine the Blue Ball Cap, the Red Ball Cap and the Tan Suit Jacket in the Clothing Machine.
 
 
The Detective Cap was introduced as a Secret Recipe on Sept 16, 2009 and was solved in 4 months and 25 days by the collective effort of our members, culminating in mlachance9's success. However, even prior to that date, there had been many sightings of the Detective Cap in the Clubhouse, so that many members must have solved the recipe on their own.
 
 
We have a lot of interesting information on Clothing Recipes in our WIKI. You can see a list of our Solved Recipes HERE and HERE, and you can learn all about the History of Solved Outfits by clicking HERE. We have a special section for them in our forum HERE, where you could join in our efforts to solve one of the yet unsolved clothing recipes.
 
 
This is reminiscent of the recent revelation of the Yummytummy Tumbler Recipe. It is very thoughtful of Ganz to share these recipes with all Webkinz World members.

School Theme Retires on January 8! *UPDATE*

school.png
 
Webkinz Newz is announcing the retirement of the School Theme from the W Shop. This will happen on January 8, 2014, to make room for the returning Winter Wonderland Theme. You will remember that the Winter Wonderland Theme was removed from the W Shop in June 2013, with a promise that it would return seasonally.
 
The School Theme will also return, next fall, just in time for the start of the new school year. However, not all the items will be returning, so you would be wise to stock up now with your favorites. There will also be new items added to this theme when it returns.
 
Click to see the School Theme in our WIKI. Click HERE to see all the Room Themes.
 
UPDATE: This week, visit the Kinzville Map and do the Webkinz Video Challenge in the Kinzville Movie Theater for a FREE Classroom Wallpaper! You can get one every day.
