Congratulations to Webkinz Insider member R3dRulez for being the first to adopt the virtual Snowy Googles!
 
His name is Indigo, and here he is with his Pet Specific Item, the Frosty Snowmobile! The Snowy Googles' Pet Special Food is the Rock Candy.
 
The Snowy Googles is a virtual-only pet available for the first time this month in the Ganz eStore as a special offer for Deluxe-only members. He is the Deluxe Advantage Exclusive Pet for the month of December, and will be available all month for 10,000 points.
 
The Webkinz Googles have always been especially popular and you can see the Googles Collection in our WIKI.
 
Did you know?  Ganz was making Googles stuffed animals many years - decades! - before the inception of Webkinz, and even before the Google of the Internet was invented.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah to our Webkinz Insider Members!

             File:magnificentmenorah.png
 
We at Webkinz Insider would like to wish a Happy American Thanksgiving and a Happy Hanukkah to our members.
 
It is not very often that both Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah overlap. The last time was in 1918, although in Texas it also happened in 1945 and 1956. To help you celebrate these two holidays, there is a Thanksgiving Basket in your dock and a card in your KinzPost. If you have menorahs in your Webkinz World account, you will notice that they become animated during the eight days of Hanukkah. Today is the first day of Hanukkah and two candles are lit. Every day, you will find that an additional candle has been lit. The middle candle is always lit, but is not included in the count.
 
Have a very happy holiday!
 
 
 

Thanksgiving Gift Baskets Arrive in Webkinz World!

Our Webkinz Insider members with Asian accounts, where it is already November 28, are receiving this Thanksgiving Gift Basket on login.
 
There is also a Happy Thanksgiving card.
 
There are three things in your Thanksgiving Gift Bag: a food, an article of clothing and an item. Please do not reveal what they are, in order to preserve the surprise for those who enjoy opening their gift basket!
 
If you have Asian or European accounts, make sure to log in when it is November 28 in your account, rather than in your real-life calendar, in order to receive your gift.
 
Visit our WIKI to see the Thanksgiving Gift Bags of previous years, and their contents: click HERE.
 
 

Virtual Images for the Gingerbread Puppy!

 
Webkinz Newz is giving us a sneak peek at the Gingerbread Puppy! This will be a virtual-only pet, the seasonal offering for the Christmas season 2013. It is not yet known how or when this pet will be available, but the Ganz eStore is a strong possibility.
 
Here you can see the Gingerbread's online avatar, the Gift Box, the PSI and PSF. The Pet Specific Item is the Gingerbread Bed, and the Pet Special Food is the Gingersnap Pie.
 
Our Webkinz Insider members will remember that there used to be a Sweets N Treats room Theme, which was a pretty good match for this new pet. Hopefully you have already acquired these items, which you can see in our WIKI; you can still buy them from Arte in the Curio Shop. The Sweets N Treats theme was introduced to the W Shop in February 2007 and was suddenly retired to the Curio Shop in May 2013.
 
UPDATE: We now know that this adorable Gingerbread Puppy will be arriving in the eStore on December 7th. Not only that but starting on December 11th you can expect to see the Gingerbread Puppy on your Kinzville Map in Webkinz World. Click on him and you will be awarded Kinzcash!

Christmas Carol Theme Returns to W Shop!

 
With Wednesday's maintenance, the Halloween items have left the Webkinz W Shop, and the Christmas Carol Theme has returned!
 
In addition to quite a few repeats from previous years, we have four new items seen here from left to right: Town Square Music Stand, Festive Winter Sapling, Elegant Menorah, and one Deluxe-only item, the Christmas Caroler Gazebo.
 
It's interesting to note that the Town Square Music Stand and the Festive Winter Sapling will go in all four types of rooms: Indoors, Outdoors, Treetop and Underwater. The Elegant Menorah will go only in Indoor rooms; it is an animated item and the candles should begin to light up, one per day, starting on November 27. 
 
The holiday items are usually added in two installments, so watch for more additions on the next maintenance Wednesday. Happy shopping!
