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.

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*

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.

Emperor Dragon Retires on January 5! *UPDATE!*

HM178.pngWebkinz Insider members with Asian accounts are already seeing the announcement for the next weekly pet retirement. The next pet to retire will be the Emperor Dragon.
The retirement weekend in question is Saturday January 4 and Sunday January 5 2014.

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 Emperor Dragon on the Sunday.
The Emperor Dragon is an older pet, first released in January 2009, and at the time it was only the second dragon in Webkinz World after the Whimsy Dragon which dates from May 2008. There have been many dragons since then, which you can see in our Pet Collection in our WIKI. 
*UPDATE* The Sunday activity will be a FREE Alyssa House Tapestry!


Webkinz Insider Member Adopts Sig English Bulldog and Fox Terrier!

Congratulations to Webkinz Insider member chels101 on the adoptions of these December pets, received just in time for Christmas!
On the left we can admire two Signature English Bulldogs, cutely named Pancake and Waffles. They are demonstrating their Pet Specific item, the Double Decker Bus, which is a bed as you can see. The Signature English Bulldog's Pet Special Food is the Great Puppy Poundcake. This is the last Signature pet in the series which is now discontinued.
On the right, you can see another December pet, the Fox Terrier. Her name is Nellie and she is sitting on her PSI the Windy Moors Den. Her proud owner tells us that she can sit on at least 3 of the 4 green hills of the moors. The Fox Terrier's PSF is the After Run Bun.
If one of these pets appeals to you, don't forget our partner store Ameriwade. Ameriwade charges a flat shipping fee of $5 in the US ($8 in Canada), for any size order up to 8 Webkinz; and your credit card is not charged until your order ships.

Winter Wonderland Theme Returns With New Items!

In the continuing saga of the Winter Wonderland Room Theme, here are the latest developments. Here are the new items that will be added to the theme: the Winter Wonderland Clock, the Snowball Beanbag Chair and the Ice Cold Wardrobe. Let us hope that these won't be Deluxe-only items. Also, our Webkinz Insider members will remember that some items from this theme will not return but will be permanently retired.
The Winter Wonderland Room Theme will return to the W Shop as anticipated, on January 8 2014, taking the place of the School Room Theme which will in its turn be seasonally retired until next fall.

Santakinz Choice Items from 2012 and 2013 Will Become Kinzpostable!

Holidayhamstersnowglobe.png  Gooberholidayplush.png  Whitechristmascenterpiece.png
When you visit Santakinz in the Webkinz World Clubhouse and sit on his lap, you can choose one of the presents that Santa will bring you on Christmas morning. You choose from among 3 items, and your choice is found in the Holiday Gift Box.
Last year in 2012, you could choose one from the three items shown above: the Holiday Hamster Snow Globe, the Goober Holiday Plush or the White Christmas Centerpiece. However, contrarily to previous years, these 3 items are NOT KINZPOSTABLE. This year's 3 choice items, the Pink Rocking Horse, Doug Holiday Plush and Wacky Christmas Gnome Lantern, are also non-kinzpostable.
But in a move full of Christmas spirit, Webkinz Newz has announced that these 6 items will be made kinzpostable early in the new year 2014. All other items from the Christmas and Holiday Gift Bags prior to 2012 have always been kinzpostable.  Click HERE to see all previous Gifts.
Thank you Ganz for granting us this wish!
