GENERAL QUESTIONS

Questions about Webkinz WorldTM: what you can do, how you sign up and questions about the plush toys.

 

What are Webkinz Pets?

Webkinz Pets are lovable plush pets that each come with a unique Secret Code that lets play with a virtual version of your pet.

 

What are all the cool things I can do in Webkinz WorldTM?

Where do we start? First, you adopt your pet and name it. Then you can custom design a room for it. You can play games in the Arcade, or compete against other players in tournaments. You can answer quizzes in Quizzy’s Question Corner. All of these things earn you KinzCash, which you can use to go shopping for your Webkinz Pet in our W Shop, or any other shop where you can buy things for your Webkinz Pet. There are stories to read and fun daily activities. The best part is that we add things to Webkinz WorldTM frequently, so it’s always getting bigger and better.

 

How do I find out more about Webkinz WorldTM?

There are lots of ways. Inside the site, you can click on the help button at the bottom right of the dock to open a Help File for more information on the area you are in. You also getmore information from the “Contact Us” section of the Newzpaper, or even by visiting WebkinzNewz.com.

 

Webkinz WorldTM sound awesome – how do I sign up?

Starting a Webkinz WorldTM account is FREE! Just click on the “Join Now For Free!” button on the home page to get started.

 

Can I join Webkinz WorldTM for free?

Yes you can! Just click the “Join Now For Free!” button on the home page to sign up for your FREE account! Once you’ve created your FREE account, you will be able to play on the site with certain limitations. If you want to play with fewer limitations, you can adopt a Webkinz Pet using a Secret Code, or become a Deluxe Member.

 

I just bought a Webkinz Pet – how do I register?

Once you create an account, just visit the Adoption Center. Ms. Birdy will take you through how to add another Webkinz Pet to your account using a Secret Code. Your Pet’s Secret Code will either be on a tag attached to your plush pet, or it will have been sent to you if the Webkinz Pet was purchased at the Ganz eStore.

 

OK, I’m registered. How do I get back on the site later?

The next time you visit us, just click on “Log In” and enter the user name and password you picked when you first registered.

 

How many Webkinz Pets are there?

There’s a link to our collection on the main page – just click on the “Webkinz Catalog” button on our home page. Once you’re logged in, you can also check out the “Webkinz Pets and Stuff” section in the Newzpaper. The Webkinz family is always growing, so check back often!

 

Where do I buy new Webkinz/Lil’ Webkinz pets? Can I buy them online?

To find a store, go to the Webkinz home page and click on the “Store Locator” button. Newly released Webkinz Pets may take a week or so to arrive at your local store, but you can always go in and pre-order them. If you find a store does not have the Webkinz Pets you are looking for, ask them to order it. They will be more than happy to do this for you. There are also some online stores where you can buy Webkinz Pets. Just ask a parent to Google the word WEBKINZ.

 

How much are the Webkinz plush pets? Can you make them cheaper?

Sorry to say, but the prices of the Webkinz Pet plush toys are not in our control. Ganz provides each retailer with a suggested retail price. However, it is up to the retailers to price them. You may have to shop around to find the best priced Webkinz Pets.

If you want to know where you can get a Webkinz Pet, be sure to check out the Store Locator on the Webkinz WorldTM home page.

 

Can I machine wash my Webkinz Pet?

No, your Webkinz Pet plush toy should not be washed in a washing machine. If they are looking a little scruffy, and a bit of a wash seems like a good idea, please wipe it with a damp cloth with a little, teensy-tiny bit of baby shampoo. Next, wipe it again with a damp cloth, this time with no soap.

 

What’s the Webkinz Catalog for?

You can view the Webkinz Catalog from the home page. The catalog is just another way to look at all the wonderful Webkinz Pets. You can even check off the Webkinz Pets you want to adopt next and add them to your Wish List!

 

How do I make a Wish List?

To create a Wish List, simply click on the “Webkinz Catalog” button and check the box next to any Webkinz Pet you are interested in collecting. When you have checked all of the boxes you want, click on the “Wish List” button and you’ll be able to print a copy of your new Wish List!

 

How did you come up with Webkinz WorldTM?

GANZ has loved stuffed animals for a very long time. So we thought, wouldn’t it be great to have a place where your stuffed animal came to life so that you could care for it like a real pet? To make the pet more real, we decided it could be happy or sad, healthy or sick, hungry or full. Taking care of your pet matters!

Of course we wanted it to be as fun as possible so we added games and trivia and lots of fun items that we thought players would enjoy working for to purchase for their Webkinz Pet!

 

How do you come up with your ideas?

We have a whole team of people here always working on new ideas to make Webkinz WorldTM better for everyone. We also get ideas from fans like you.

 

How often is Webkinz WorldTM updated?

We generally update Webkinz WorldTM every three weeks or so. But not everything on the site can be updated every few weeks, so keep coming back to check what’s new!

 

When did Webkinz WorldTM begin?

Webkinz WorldTM began on April 28, 2005. It is getting bigger and better every single day! We’ve got a great team of technical wizards, creative writers, awesome artists, and terrific support people who work hard to make Webkinz WorldTM wonderful! We hope you’re enjoying your time in Webkinz WorldTM…you never know what might happen next!

If we select the Limited Advertising Option what ads will be limited?

As a courtesy to our users, we provide an opportunity to limit third party advertisements inside of Webkinz.com. If you select this option, you should not be presented with any third-party banner or clickable advertising, as well as any sponsored content integrated into the site. If you find that a third party advertisement appears for some reason, after you have elected this option, please report it to our Customer Service team so we can have it removed.

When the Limited Advertising Option is selected, some features, including certain prize opportunities, e.g. floaty-clicky events, may not be available.

 

Please note that Free Players cannot choose the Limited Advertising Option.

 

Which category of users may select the Limited Advertising Option?

Only users with current Full or Deluxe accounts tied to a Webkinz Pet may limit third-party advertisements. Those with “free” accounts, may not select this option.

 

What advertisements will you see if you select the Limited Advertising Option?

You will still see Webkinz and other Ganz advertisements, but third-party clickable and banner advertisements should be turned off.

Remember that if you select this option, others accessing Webkinz WorldTM on the same computer may be subject to the Limited Advertising Option as well.

 

What should I do if I am still seeing third-party advertisements after selecting the Limited Advertising Option?

While we endeavor to limit all third party advertisements when you choose this option, it is possible that a third-party clickable or banner advertisement may be mis-programmed and viewable by users. Please report any third-party advertisements that you encounter to our Customer Service team so we can take appropriate action.

In addition, if you clear your device’s cache or remove cookies, certain third party advertisements may be viewable on the Webkinz.com home page, login and logout pages and certain pages or activities presented after you log-out. Clearing your cache or removing cookies should have no effect on the limiting of third-party advertisements within the internal Website itself.

If you are using a different device than was used to select this option, you will see third-party advertisements on the home page, login and logout pages and pages and activities following the logout page. This should have no effect on the limiting of third-party advertisements within the internal Website itself. To avoid this, re-select this option from the new device.

 

What type of Ads do you allow on the Webkinz site?

Webkinz contains both advertisements of its own and third parties and sponsored (branded) content. Advertisements are clickable and may take users off of the Webkinz website. Sponsored (branded) content may use a logo or contain branded announcements, but are not clickable. We also have our Webkinz Pets, Webkinz products and our Webkinz branding throughout the Website, but do not consider that to be “advertisements.”

We are very selective about the content of third-party advertisements and the products and services being advertised through third-party advertisers on the Website. To learn more about our advertising standards, review our Ad Policy.

 

Where do you permit Advertisements on the Webkinz site?

Ads may appear within Webkinz WorldTM, as well as on the home, login, and logout pages, and the pages appearing after the logout page. Some sponsored content may be part of various prize activites, e.g. floaty-clicky events where users may win prizes.

 

How do I limit 3rd Party Ads in Webkinz WorldTM?

To limit 3rd party ads, you must log in to your Parents Controls through the Parent’s Area, accessed from the Webkinz home page. Once you have logged in, you will see the option to limit 3rd party advertising. Please note that Free Players cannot opt out of third party advertising.

If I clear my browser cookies, will I still be opted out of third party advertising on Webkinz?

How do I adopt another Webkinz Pet?

To find out where you can get more Webkinz Pets, check the Store Locator on the Webkinz WorldTM home page to find the shop closest to you. Webkinz Pets love to have friends, and there are always new Webkinz Pets waiting to be adopted.

Once you create an account, just visit the Adoption Center. Ms. Birdy will take you through how to add another Webkinz Pet to your account using a Secret Code. Your Pet’s Secret Code will either be on a tag attached to your plush pet, or it will have been sent to you if the Webkinz Pet was purchased at the Ganz eStore.

 

How many Webkinz Pets can I adopt?

While there is no official limit to the number of Webkinz Pets you can adopt, we recommend that you do not adopt more than 100 pets on a single account, as this may affect the speed of your account depending on your system’s technical limitations. When you reach 100 pets, we recommend starting a new Webkinz WorldTM account!

 

Can I adopt another Webkinz Pet with the same Secret Code?

You cannot adopt another Webkinz Pet with the same Secret Code because in Webkinz WorldTM, every Webkinz Pet has a unique Secret Code that helps keep track of everything about them. Each Secret Code will only allow you to adopt one Webkinz Pet.

 

My plush Webkinz Pet didn’t come with a Secret Code tag

All Webkinz Pets must be sold with a Secret Code. If yours did not come with a Secret Code, please take it back to the store where you bought it and get another Webkinz Pet that has a Secret Code. If you were sold a Webkinz Pet without a Secret Code, it is the retailer’s responsibility to replace it.

 

I lost my Secret Code

The Webkinz Pet tag and the Secret Code it contains is a valuable part of the Webkinz Pet product. Each Webkinz Pet comes with its own unique Secret Code, which is contained in the tag that is securely attached to every Webkinz Pet when it is shipped to the original retailer.

Just as we cannot replace a lost Webkinz Pet, we are unable to replace a lost Webkinz Pet tag and the Secret Code that comes with it. We have made every attempt to identify that the Secret Code is necessary to the adoption of your Webkinz Pet.

We understand that honest mistakes are made where tags may be disposed of or misplaced accidentally. We truly want you and your child to enjoy the full value of the Webkinz Pet. However, Ganz policy states that we cannot replace any Secret Code that is lost or misplaced. This is why it is very important to keep your Secret Codes in a safe place at all times.

 

I accidentally adopted my new Webkinz Pet under a new user name – can I put my Webkinz Pet back on my original account?

If your Webkinz Pets are on two separate accounts and you would like them to be on the same account, the accounts must be merged.

It is possible for us to reset your new account if you have started it within the past 30 days. Please be aware that if we do this, you will lose all other Webkinz Pets, KinzCash, rooms, and items you have accumulated on your account. Also, if you have entered any Feature Codes into this account, once the account is reset, the Feature Codes and all associated prizes will be lost. You will be unable to re-enter the Feature Codes in your new account. However, you will be able to readopt the Webkinz Pets using your existing Secret Codes. This way all your Webkinz Pet s can be merged onto the same account.

 

I accidentally adopted my friend’s/sibling’s Webkinz Pet onto my account. Can we split them?

Unfortunately, once a Webkinz Pet has been adopted onto a specific account, it cannot be removed from that account. Please make sure that you are using the correct account when adopting your Webkinz Pet. When you first sign up, you have the option to adopt additional Webkinz Pets onto the same account – be sure that this is what you want. If you want to adopt another Webkinz Pet on a separate account, please wait until you have finished registering the first Webkinz Pet, and then log out and start again for the second account.

 

Do all my Webkinz Pets have to be on the same account?

They do not have to be on the same account, but it might be easier for you to take care of them if they are. To make sure your new Webkinz Pet gets on the same account, log in first and then visit the Adoption Center to adopt your new Webkinz Pet. Please make sure that you adopt your additional Webkinz Pet on the correct account as they cannot be moved or removed later. Remember, with each additional adoption, you get some awesome presents!

 

Can I share an account with a friend?

One Secret Code only gets you one Webkinz WorldTM account, which can only be played on by one person at a time. Additionally, Webkinz does not condone the sharing of passwords between players as it can result in the breaching of accounts and loss of KinzCash and items.

 

How do I print off my Adoption Certificate?

Once you complete the adoption process, your certificate will be displayed on the screen. You can print that off right away, or you can go back to it later. To access your Adoption Certificate, click on the My Pets icon next to your pet portrait in the Dock. Both your Webkinz Pet’s biography and Adoption Certificate will be there for you to view or print.

 

When does my Full Membership expire? How do I renew my account?

Your Full Membership expires one year after the adoption date of your most recent Webkinz Pet. When this membership expires, you will be able to continue as a Free Player, with access to all of your pets and items, but with some limitations. If you wish to regain your Full Membership status, simply go to the Adoption Centre and adopt a new Webkinz Pet with an unused Secret Code, or have your account upgraded to a Deluxe Membership.

 

How do I permanently delete my pet or account?

If you no longer wish to play on Webkinz WorldTM, feel free not to login to the site. If you do change your mind at any time within the next two years, you are welcome to come back. You will be able to play with all of your pets and will still have all of your items. After 18 months of inactivity, we may archive your account, including all of your items and pets included on that account. An archived account can be recovered by contacting our Customer Service team.

 

How do I delete a Webkinz Pet or account and start over?

The adoption of your Webkinz Pet is final – we cannot delete a Webkinz Pet and let you start from scratch. If you are really unhappy with your account, you can always purchase another Webkinz Pet and start a new account.

 

I’ve forgotten my username – what do I do?

If you’ve forgotten your username and if you have provided a Parent’s Email for your account, just click on the “Forgot Password?” button on the log in page and then enter your Parent’s Email address. We will send your User Name and a link to reset your password to your parent’s email.

 

If you’ve forgotten your User Name but haven’t provided a Parent’s Email address, you will need the Secret Code from one of your pets on that account to recover it. Click on the same “Forgot Log In?” button then choose the Secret Code option. You will then be asked to enter that Secret Code, along with other personal information to verify your identity. Make sure you use the same information you entered when you first adopted your pet. You will also need to provide an email where your User Name and the password reset link can be sent to you.

 

Can I change my username or Webkinz Pet name after I have registered?

Unfortunately, no. Please choose your user name and Webkinz Pet name carefully. If your username or Webkinz Pet name is deemed inappropriate, it may be changed.

 

Why did I have to change my username?

If your username was determined to be inappropriate, you will be prompted to change it the next time that you log in. While most inappropriate words cannot be used, we may later determine that your username is not appropriate for Webkinz WorldTM. Inappropriate usernames include any that use profanity or vulgarity, as well as usernames that advertise email addresses, web addresses or corporations. We do not permit any third-party advertising through usernames on Webkinz WorldTM.

 

Can I change the gender of my pet?

Sorry to say, but there is no way to change the gender of your Webkinz Pet. You got to choose whether your Webkinz Pet is a boy or girl when you adopted it. The good news is that Webkinz Pets are happy to wear any and all clothing in the W Shop and that no one really knows the gender of your Webkinz Pet unless you tell them; the only place the gender appears is on your Webkinz Pet’s adoption certificate.

 

How do I change my password?

If you have forgotten your password, or gave it to a friend and now you don’t want that friend playing with your account, changing your password is easily done.

 

If you have forgotten your either your user name or password, click on the “Forget Login?” button on the login screen. You will be given the option to recover them either with a Parent’s Email already provided for account recovery, or with a Secret Code from one of your Webkinz Pets . You will then be sent a new password reset link from us. You can change that password to something more familiar to you, back at the login page by clicking Change Password.

 

If you think a friend knows your password and you want to change it, type in your current username and password.

 

Click on the button labeled “Change Password”. You will see a screen that asks for your username, your old password, and a new password. Be sure to choose a new password that is easy for you to remember, but difficult for other people to guess.

 

Important: Remember to keep your password a secret!

 

What do I get for each adoption?

For your first Webkinz Pet, you get 2000 KinzCash; for your second through tenth adoptions, you get 2500 KinzCash, an exclusive item and a medium room; for your eleventh and beyond, you get 3500 KinzCash, an exclusive item and either a Super Bed or a roll on the bonus die.

When you adopt your tenth Webkinz Pet and every fifth one after that, you get a Super Bed. To choose the Super Bed, just open your Webkinz Pet’s welcome gift as usual (by dragging and dropping it into your room). You will see the three items in the gift; one of those items will be a gold present. That gold present will be in the objects section of your Dock. Drag the present into your room and it will open up. You will then see the Super Bed screen and you will be allowed to choose which Super Bed you want!

When you adopt your eleventh Webkinz Pet and beyond, you get a chance to watch the bonus dice spin (with your tenth, fifteenth, twentieth, twenty-fifth and every fifth Webkinz Pet after that, you get a super bed). To watch the bonus dice spin, just open your Webkinz Pet’s welcome gift as usual (by dragging and dropping it into your room). You will see the three items in the gift; one of those items will be a blue present. The blue present will be in the objects section of your dock. Just drag it into your room and it will open up. You will see the bonus dice spin and then view the prize you unlocked!

 

Why did I not receive a room with my latest adoption?

You will receive a free medium room with the first 10 Webkinz Pets that you adopt. You will not receive a new room after your 11th adoption. Instead, you will get to spin the bonus dice.

 

What’s a Super Bed? How do I get one?

A Super Bed is a super exclusive object that you get when you adopt your 10th Webkinz Pet, and every 5th Webkinz Pet afterwards (your 15th, 20th, 25th, etc).

 

What is the KinzCash coin and how do I use it?

The KinzCash coin is a special gift you can get when you spin the bonus dice. To get the KinzCash from your 1000 KinzCash coin, you must sell the coin to the W Shop. Just go to the W Shop and click “sell.” Drag and drop your coin into the box and click “sell.” You’ll get the KinzCash from the sale added to your KinzCash total.

 

How do you roll the bonus die?

If you want to watch the bonus dice spin, you need to adopt eleven or more Webkinz Pets. With your eleventh Webkinz Pet and beyond, you’ll get a chance to spin the bonus dice and see which special item you might win. You could get a KinzCash coin, an exclusive object, or a rare item. Good luck!

    1. WHEEL OF WOW! – It gives out an average of 50 KinzCash a day. That’s 350W a week!

    3. THE CARE AWARD – Click on the Care Award when you login every day to receive KinzCash!

    5. QUIZZY’S QUESTION CORNER. The best way to earn KinzCash. Try to get through one series of questions (it only 15 minutes) and you’ll earn between 150 to 250 KinzCash a day – that’s up to 1750 a week!

The grand total is 2500 KinzCash and all for playing 20 minutes a day. You can also do a job once every 8 hours to earn LOTS of KinzCash!

Don’t forget that you get more KinzCash every time you adopt a pet.

So why not give the above suggestions a try? You will be amazed at how much you can earn every week and you know what that means…

Now you can REALLY go shopping!

 

How do I make more KinzCash on games?

The best way to earn LOTS of KinzCash from the Arcade is to play the Game of the Day and to check out the “Today’s Activities” page to see if any games are giving out bonuses.

 

Is there a limit to how much KinzCash I can have?

Guess what? There’s no limit to how much KinzCash you can have. We already have many millionaires!

 

Can you give me some free KinzCash?

Sorry, but we do not give out any free KinzCash. There are plenty of ways to get free KinzCash, though, such as:

    1. WHEEL OF WOW! It gives out an average of 50 KinzCash a day. That’s 350W a week!
    2. WISHING WELL. You’ll average 40 KinzCash a day and 280W a week!
    3. THE CARE AWARD. Click on the Care Award in ‘My Pets’ every day to receive at least 10 KinzCash!
    4. THE SURVEY. One click gets you 50 KinzCash a week!

 

Can I lend KinzCash to a friend?

Sorry, but right now there is no way to lend your friends KinzCash. However, you can send your friends items using KinzPost which they can then sell for KinzCash.

 

Help, I lost KinzCash in a game!

Unfortunately, once you are logged into a game, your turn is automatically counted, so if you are accidentally logged out, there is nothing we can do. Sometimes during peak hours, certain people’s connection to the site can become unstable. We are constantly working at improving the increasing demand on our servers so these situations won’t happen as much in the future.

 

I didn’t get my KinzCash from a game/Quizzy’s.

In both the Arcade and Quizzy’s, KinzCash is awarded at the moment you win it. Even though Quizzy’s keeps score of how much you have won, KinzCash is added to your count right after you answer a question.

Is it possible you didn’t notice that your KinzCash went up? We suggest next time you play, you note what your KinzCash count was before and after you play.

 

I won some KinzCash but I didn’t get it.

In most cases, KinzCash gets put on your account the instant you win or earn it. You may not have seen what your KinzCash count was before, or your view of your count was blocked so you did not see it change, like in an Arcade Game. In other cases, like the Tournament Arena, KinzCash is not awarded until the tournament has been completed by all players, which may happen when you are away from Webkinz WorldTM.

 

What happened to my Quizzy/Tournament Arena/Employment Office KinzCash?

The KinzCash you earn at Quizzy’s, the Employment Office and the Tournament Arena is awarded immediately when you earn it. Both Quizzy’s and the Employment Office show you the total amount of KinzCash you have earned, but that KinzCash has already been put on your account. When you win in the Tournament Arena, the KinzCash is awarded as soon as the Tournament is finished (whether you’re in Webkinz WorldTM at the time or not), so you may not notice when it is added.

 

Why didn’t I get my KinzCash from a job?

When you do a job in Webkinz WorldTM, you only get your KinzCash if you complete the job in time. As well, you do not get any KinzCash if you quit a job. You can try a job every 8 hours.

If you have completed a job and are still wondering what happened to your KinzCash, don’t forget, like other things in Webkinz WorldTM, like the Arcade and Quizzy’s for example, KinzCash gets added to your count the instant you finish. It’s always a good idea to know your KinzCash before you do anything in Webkinz WorldTM.

 

I didn’t get KinzCash from the Wishing Well!

Every time you spin the Wishing Well, KinzCash is instantly added to your count. As you cannot see your count until the game is over, it would be easy not to notice it being added.

Next time you’re playing write down your KinzCash count before you play, and then see if it has changed after.

 

Why didn’t I get my KinzCash from the survey?

The KinzCash gets added to your total instantly when you click your answer, so you might not have noticed the increase. Keep a sharp eye on your total next time you answer a survey.

 

TODAY’S ACTIVITIES

Questions about fun stuff scheduled in Webkinz WorldTM, including the Wheel of WOW, Wishing Well and Gem Hunt.

 

What is the Today’s Activities page?

The Today’s Activities page is located in the “Things to Do” menu. You should also have a Today’s Activites building on your Map of Kinzville. This is the place to get coupons, find out about sales at the W Shop, and find out when Quizzy’s questions and Arcade games are paying out bonus KinzCash.

 

Can you run an activity every day?

Unfortunately, not all games can be run every day, which is why we schedule them on the Today’s Activities page. Doing this also helps to keep things more interesting around Webkinz WorldTM with new and exciting things happening every week!

 

How are they scheduled?

The activities are scheduled to start later in the afternoon on weekdays and earlier on weekends. Please note that everything scheduled in Webkinz WorldTM is based on the KinzTime you chose when you initially created your account. We try to schedule different events throughout the day so you can have a chance at trying various things, but we can’t have special times for everybody.

 

How does KinzTime work?

KinzTime is our way of setting a standard time by which everyone can figure out when scheduled events, like daily activities, are happening in Webkinz WorldTM. Yours KinzTime will be chosen for you once you create an account and select a country. Please make sure that you choose your correct country, as it directly corresponds to the KinzTime you are assigned and cannot be changed after the registration process has ended.

 

How does the Care Award work? Why didn’t I get my award?

This is a way for you to show how much you love your Webkinz Pet. You should see the Care Award window the first time you login to Webkinz WorldTM each day. Click on the “I Love Webkinz” button and you will win some food and KinzCash. You will win 10 KinzCash on the first day, 15 on the second day, and five KinzCash more for each day you visit the Care Award in a week. Click on the button every day for a week and at the end of the week you’ll get a 25 KinzCash bonus! If you click everyday you will be entered into a draw at the end of the week for an exclusive item. This draw does not guarantee that you get an exclusive item; it just gives you a chance.

 

How do I play Gem Hunt?

First, you need to visit Arte’s Curio Shop using the building on your Map of Kinzville. Once you are in his shop, click on the “Gem Hunt” button. It will open up a map of 5 mines where you can search for gems.

Each day you will be allowed to search 1 mine. Once you are in the mine, simply click on 3 sparkling rocks to dig them out with your pick axe and reveal if you have found an actual gem. If you have found a gem, you will need to go back to the Curio Shop to put it into your collection. Before you do, Arte will make you a one-time offer to buy it from you. Listen carefully to what he offers you each time so you can decide if it’s worth selling your gem to him.

If you collect all 30 of the different gems, you will be able to trade it for the Webkinz Crown of Wonder!

 

The Crown of Wonder – What is it? How many are there? Can I sell it?

The Crown of Wonder is like a trophy your pet can wear! Arte can make a Crown of Wonder for anyone that collects all 30 gems. As long as you collect all 30 gems, you can keep redeeming them for Crowns of Wonder! You can certainly sell the Crown afterwards, if you really want to. If you have all five colors filled in on your crown drawing, you still have to click the crown icon on the front of your collection book/box so we know you collected them all. When you click the crown icon, Arte will ask if you want to trade your gem collection in for the crown.

 

How does finding gems work?

There are 20 stones in each cave. Each stone does not necessarily contain a gem; some stones just contain slag. You can only hammer three rocks in the cave. As soon as you find a gem, you’ll go back to the Curio Shop. There are a lot of people who want to go into the mines each day, which is why you can only visit one each day.

You only get one chance to go mining each day. If you do not find a gem, just come back tomorrow. The more you visit the mines, the sooner you should be able to learn how best to find the particular gems you are searching for, including the “Gem of the Day.” Certain gems are much rarer than others, which is why when you are lucky enough to find a gem, it might be one that you have already found. That’s also why the rarer gems are worth more KinzCash. The gems’ locations are randomly hidden in different spots everyday and that location is different for every visitor. You never quite know where they will be hidden!

 

How does selling gems work?

Arte only offers you money for a gem once you have found it. As soon as you have added it to your collection, you no longer can sell it back to him. But remember, once you earn the crown you can sell the crown itself!

Arte rarely ever makes the same offer twice, except for the Gem of the Day. His offers are based both on your collection and his own need for particular types of gems.

If you sell a collection box, you are not selling the gems inside. If you buy more than one collection box, you will only see the same collection of gems inside.

 

I was logged out after I found a gem; now what?

If you had already found your gem before you were logged out, it was added to your collection. Please log back into Webkinz WorldTM and check your gem collection. The new gem should be there! Unfortunately, you will not be able to sell this gem to Arte.

 

I didn’t get a bonus at Quizzy’s!

Sometimes, on the “Today’s Activities” page, you will see that certain Quizzy questions are worth bonus KinzCash. If you go to Quizzy’s during the scheduled bonus time, you can earn extra KinzCash. If you were already playing in Quizzy’s before the bonus time started, you will not see the bonus. Just leave Quizzy’s, visit the Map, and return to Quizzy’s and you will be able to earn bonus KinzCash on the featured questions.

 

How do the floating prizes work?

The floating prizes are something special! Unlike the other activities, there is no GO button to click on to see a floating prize appear – it will appear on your screen randomly and fly across. You have to click it fast before it disappears! It will not show up while you are in a game, so keep your eyes open!

When a floating prize is scheduled, it doesn’t mean that you are guaranteed to see one – just that there’s a chance that one might float by in that time period.

 

What is the Jellybean Challenge?

The Jellybean Challenge is a fun activity that you can occasionally find on the “Today’s Activities” page. To do the activity, just look at the jar and take a good guess about how many beans there are. Whoever makes the best guess (guesses the number closest to the correct number, or guesses the correct number exactly) will win a jar of Super jellybeans that will fill your pets hunger up to 100 percent! You will also win some KinzCash. We do not announce the final number, so keep an eye on the message you get.

 

How does the Quick Draw work? How do I know if I’ve won?

When you enter a Quick Draw, you will have a chance to win KinzCash and other awesome prizes. If you win, you will get a letter in your room five minutes after the Quick Draw ends.

Check out the “Today’s Activities” page today to see if you can enter a Quick Draw!

 

What’s the Super Wheel? How often does it come to Webkinz WorldTM?

The Super Wheel is super because everything on it is VERY special; from LOTS of KinzCash to expensive W Shop items to a couple of exclusive objects – this is the wheel you want to spin! Keep your eyes on the “Today’s Activities” page or watch for a Today’s Announcement to find out when exactly it will be available. Remember; it’s not around very often, so don’t miss it!

 

What is Wacky’s Bingoz?

Wacky’s Bingoz is a special activity that you can do every day in Webkinz WorldTM. Just go to the Today’s Activities page and click on the Wacky’s Bingoz link. This will take you to a page where you can get your Bingoz numbers for the day. You can play one, two, and three ball Bingoz on this page. Each game is played the same way; if you get a row of diagonal, horizontal or vertical numbers, you can shout out Bingoz and win. If someone shouts ‘Bingoz’ before you and wins, you will receive a new blank card the next day.

Just remember; you only get your Bingoz numbers if you come to Webkinz WorldTM and visit the Bingoz page!

 

My numbers disappeared on Wacky’s Bingoz – what happened?

This means that someone has shouted out BINGOZ and won. When this happens, you get a new blank card to start a new game.

 

How do I use a Wacky’s Bingoz coupon?

To use your Wacky’s Bingoz coupon, just look for the coupon on the left side of the Wacky’s Bingoz screen next time you go to play the game. Click on the coupon to use it. If you use the coupon, you will get an extra Wacky’s Bingoz ball!

 

W SHOP AND CURIO SHOP

Buying stuff, selling stuff and questions about rare items.

 

Q: How do I buy things at the WShop? 

A:

  • Pick any category in the WShop. They are listed along the left side of the shop.
  • Next, choose a section to browse. Each section is listed above the items on display.
  • Click the preview button to see what an item looks like in a room.
  • If you want to purchase an item, click on it then click the BUY button and it will be added to your Dock.

 

Q: What can I buy at the WShop? 

A: You can buy food for your pet, furniture for your rooms, games to play and even more pets to add to your Webkinz Family! Explore the WShop by clicking on each category to see what’s for sale. Remember, if you want to buy Clothing for your pet you need to visit the KinzStyle Outlet. You can access the outlet from the THINGS TO DO menu.

 

Where do I find items in the W Shop?

There are several categories in the W Shop. These categories let you know what items are available in each section. You can find side tables, coffee tables and dining tables in the Tables section. Some things might be a bit harder to find, but generally if you are looking for a game that you play in your room, or looking for books, treadmills or stuff to add to the Webkinz Studio, you’ll find them in the Fun Stuff category. The best thing to do is look in all of the categories for whatever you are looking for. You can find clothing for your pet to wear in the KinzStyle Outlet.

 

I just bought something from the W Shop but I can’t find it!

It is possible that you have a lot of stuff crowded in your dock and you just need to search a little bit more for your missing item. Make sure you try clicking on the tab for the right category and also click on the left and right arrows to scroll through the items one by one. If that doesn’t work, just log out of Webkinz WorldTM and then log back in. We’re sure you’ll find what you were missing.

 

Can I buy that thing I saw in the Newzpaper in the W Shop?

Sometimes, when our artists draw things, they use their imaginations to come up with certain items that you can’t buy in the W Shop.

We are always making great new stuff to add to Webkinz WorldTM, though, so keep your eyes on the Newzpaper and the W Shop to find when any new items are available.

 

How do I sell something at the WShop?

Click the SELL ITEMS button in the WShop and drag and drop the items you want to sell from your Dock into the spaces provided. When you are ready, click the SELL ITEMS button and the KinzCash you get will be added to your total. When you sell something back to the WShop, you get half of what you paid.

 

I sold an item by mistake at the W Shop – how do I get it back?

Unfortunately, there is no way to get an item back once it has been sold to the W Shop. While you can always buy regular items again, be extra careful with rare or special items, as they cannot be replaced.

 

Can you lower prices at the W Shop?

The W Shop is full of awesome bargains. Check out the “Sale Items” section to see what’s on sale.

You can also get coupons from the “Today’s Activities” page to buy items at the W Shop. To use a coupon, choose the item you want to buy, press “Checkout” and on the check out page, drag the coupon from your Dock to the item. The price of the item will be adjusted. Press “Buy Now” to buy the item.

 

How do I buy clothing for my pet?

If you want to buy clothing for your pet you need to visit the KinzStyle Outlet. You can access the outlet from the THINGS TO DO menu.

 

How do I get eStore points?

Your eStore points are displayed in your Dock, above the picture of you pet. Click on the “+” button next to your eStore points to add more to your account. eStore points can be used to buy items at the WShop, earn extra plays in the Arcade and the Magical Forest as well as skip Challenge tasks.

 

What are coupons and how do I use them?

Look for coupon give-a-ways in the Today’s Activities section of Webkinz. If you have a coupon, you can use it to reduce the price of items in the WShop (items available for KinzCash only). Click the COUPON button in the WShop and drag and drop a coupon from your Dock into the space provided to use it.

 

What furniture can I only find in the Curio Shop?

The Curio Shop is the only place to get special rare themes. You can also find other special objects that are only found in the Curio Shop.

 

Why doesn’t Arte remember me?

If you don’t visit Arte in the Curio Shop for awhile, it is possible that he will not remember you when you do visit him again; Arte sees SO many different customers each day! It is important to visit Arte every single day to make sure he remembers who you are. Be sure to visit him and buy an item or give him a tip every day, and he will recognize you in no time!

 

Arte didn’t let me tip him and I hadn’t tipped him yet – what happened?

Arte only gives you one chance to tip him. If you are about to tip him and click somewhere else before you select an amount, it will count as your tip.

I lost my Dock – how do I get it back?

The Dock may disappear if the connection to the Webkinz server has been lost. Close the window and log back in again from the main site and the Dock will return.

 

I’m having problems moving stuff into or around my room.

In most cases, problems with your room can be solved by clearing your temporary Internet files. If you don’t know how, check our instructions on how to clear your cache using different browsers located in this same section.

 

I bought something at the W Shop, but it didn’t show up in my Dock. I want my KinzCash back.

KinzCash is only taken from your account when your item shows up in the Dock. It is possible that you didn’t click Buy Now at the Check Out counter. It is also possible the item is in your Dock, but you just can’t see it. Use the arrows at both ends of the dock to page through everything that is there.

 

What do I do if my pet is stuck or invisible?

If your pet is stuck in one spot or you can’t see it at all, try jumping to another room by clicking on the House Map button and selecting another room.

 

What do I do if an object is stuck?

Please let us know exactly which item you are having difficulties with (you can find out the name by surfing through the W Shop). Once we know this, our Customer Support team can fix the problem for you. Click on the Customer Support link in the menu on your left or go to the main Webkinz page and click on the Customer Support button. From there, click on the ‘I Have Something Stuck’ link. Once you click on the line which reads ‘I Have an Item Stuck’ you will be prompted to fill out a form which will help us fix the problem.

 

What do I do if a vehicle is stuck?

The Technical Wizards have this special tool that takes cars, scooters, trucks and other fun vehicles and puts them back into your dock if they are stuck somewhere. So, if you have a vehicle stuck in your door, please know that it will be fixed (and returned to your dock) in a day or two. If this has not been fixed after 2 days, then please contact the Customer Support team using the button on the Webkinz homepage. Just click on the ‘I Have Something Stuck’ link and look for the line which reads ‘I Have a Vehicle Stuck in a doorway’. When you click on it, you will be prompted to fill out a form which will assist us in fixing the problem.

 

Help! An object or KinzCash has gone missing from my account!

If you notice that items or KinzCash is missing from your account, please change the password right away. The only way items and KinzCash go missing is if someone else is using your account. We suggest that all users keep their passwords a secret. To change the password, please go to the Webkinz WorldTM home page and click ‘Log In.’ Enter your current username and password and then click on CHANGE PASSWORD – you will be prompted to enter your old password and a new password. Please make sure your new password is a combination of letters and numbers, and is something that others cannot guess easily.

KEEP THIS PASSWORD A SECRET. Also, please note that you are responsible for all activity on your account. Webkinz will not be responsible for lost KinzCash, lost Items, lost pets or damage of any kind due to actions on your account initiated by you or by anyone else who may have access to your account, whether intended or not.

 

What if I don’t log out from the site? What happens?

If you do not log out, our system will assume that you are not taking care of your Webkinz Pet and you will lose a few Happy, Health and Hunger points. Even though you will be automatically logged out after 15 minutes, it is always best to click on the ‘Logout’ button on the top right of the Webkinz WorldTM window.

 

Why was I logged out?

There are two ways for this to happen. First, if you don’t do anything for 15 minutes, you will be automatically logged out. This is done so that your Webkinz Pet’s happiness, health and hunger levels do not decrease. Second, if you have a slow computer or slow Internet connection, you can get disconnected. If this happens in the middle of a game, there is nothing we can do about lost KinzCash.

 

THE ROOM, YOUR WEBKINZ PET AND KINZCHAT

Questions about your room, what you can do with your Webkinz Pet and how to use KinzChat.

 

Where do I go to find out things I can do with my Webkinz Pet?

The best way to find out what you can do in Webkinz WorldTM is completing the challenges that appear as icons down the left side of your map or room. These will take you through everything you need to know about caring for your Webkinz Pet.

 

What can we do in the room?

You can do lots of things in a Webkinz Pet’s room! Including:

    1. Play – you can purchase various toys (like the scooter, skateboard, and trampoline) and the Webkinz Pet can play on these items.
    2. Cook – if you purchase a stove, blender, or sandwich maker, you can drag three foods into the appliance and try to make various foods. There are cookbooks available in the Fun Stuff section of the W Shop.
    3. Invite friends to visit – By using the KinzChat cell phone, you can invite friends over to chat and play in their Webkinz Pet’s room.
    4. Play games – Games in the W Shop’s Fun Stuff section are for the room. You can play some of these games against the computer, and others against friends.
    5. Decorate – You can decorate your rooms in any way you like. Remember; if you want to add a new room, just use the ‘House Map’ button and click ‘Add Room.’ Click on a blank space (where you’d like the new room to go), and click on the type of room you’d like. You can then use the House Map to jump to this new room.

 

Why does my Webkinz Pet look sad or sick today?

When your Webkinz Pet’s Happiness, Health or Hunger meters go down, you will see a change in your pet’s appearance. You can make your Webkinz Pet happier by playing with it, visiting the Arcade or Quizzy’s, buying stuff at the W Shop, or answering surveys. If your Webkinz Pet’s health is low, try feeding it something good to eat, especially its own specialty food, or giving it some exercise. If your pet gets really sick, it will have a green snout and thermometer and only a visit to Dr. Quack’s Clinic will make it feel better.

 

Will my Webkinz Pet get sick while I’m away?

Your Webkinz Pet will be fine. The only level that will go down is your pet’s happiness, because your Webkinz Pet is going to miss you. Your Webkinz Pet will be very happy to see you when you get back.

 

Can Webkinz Pets die or run away?

In answer to your very important question, no, your Webkinz Pet can’t die. But if your Webkinz Pet’s health dips below 9, it will definitely get sick. When that happens, your Webkinz Pet will have a green face and a thermometer in its mouth and you will have to take your Webkinz Pet to the clinic to visit Dr. Quack to make it feel better. The clinic is on the Map of Kinzville. Your Webkinz Pet will never run away, either, though it will get very sad if you do not visit it.

 

Can Webkinz Pets get married and have children?

Webkinz Pets can’t get married because they are too young — they aren’t even teenagers yet! Lil’Kinz are little brothers and sisters for your Webkinz Pets, so if your Webkinz Pet is lonely you can adopt a whole bunch and then they can have lots of siblings!

 

I have lots of Webkinz Pets – how do I keep them all happy?

A great way to keep lots of Webkinz Pets healthy and happy is to make sure you spend a few minutes with each Webkinz Pet each time you’re in Webkinz WorldTM. Play a game with each Webkinz Pet and give your Webkinz Pets a bath. This should help to keep them happy and healthy! Please note though—only your active Webkinz Pet will lose happiness, health or hunger while you play.

 

Can two Webkinz Pets share the same bed?

Right now you can’t get a bed that 2 Webkinz Pets can sleep in at the same time because they get a better night’s sleep when they have their own individual bed. If they had someone rolling over and kicking them during the night, they wouldn’t be as happy or healthy when you came to play with them the next day!

 

My Webkinz Pet won’t stay in bed/I can’t get my Webkinz Pet out of bed.

To get your Webkinz Pet to stay where you left it, use the Logout button on the top right of the screen before leaving Webkinz WorldTM. If your Webkinz Pet won’t get out of bed, its path may be blocked by objects around the bed. Try using the Edit button (top left) to move one or more objects.

 

What do I do with extra clothing that my Webkinz Pet isn’t wearing?

You can leave the clothes in your Dock, if you want, or you can buy a dresser, toy box, or drawers and store them in there like you would any other object. Each Webkinz Pet can also store several different outfits. Just open the Dress Your Pet function while in the room.

 

How do I cook? What cookbooks are available?

After you’ve bought a stove, blender or barbecue from the W Shop and put it in your Webkinz Pet’s room, you’re ready to get started! Just click on the stove, cauldron or barbecue and it will open up. Drag and drop three foods onto it and press “cook” to make a delicious dish.

To use the Sandwich Maker, just pick it up from the W Shop’s Kitchen and Bathroom section and put it in your Webkinz pet’s room. Click to open it. Drag and drop foods from your dock into the spaces on the Sandwich Maker. Click ‘Get Sandwichin’ to make a sandwich.

To use the Blender, pick one up from the W Shop and put it into your room. Click to open it and then drag and drop three foods into it. Click on “Blend” to make your very own drinks or dips!

There are several cookbooks available in the Fun Stuff section of the W Shop including Totally Blendin’ for the blenders, The Art of Sandwiching for the sandwich makers, and Simply Delicious for the stoves. Remember, you can only use the blender recipes on the blender, the stove recipes on the stove and the sandwich recipes on the sandwich maker.

How many rooms can you have?

You can have as many rooms as you like. You can make a whole mansion for your Webkinz Pet!

 

I don’t want my extra room anymore – how do I get rid of it?

When you buy a room, you can’t delete it or sell it back. If you want to sell all the items in your room (at half price), you can start over and redecorate it any way you like. Check out the W Shop for lots of great items and decorating ideas.

 

How do I remove my wallpaper or floors?

There’s no way to remove wallpaper or floors, so if you don’t like the way it looks now, you’ll need to buy replacement wallpaper or floor and cover up the old one.

 

Why can’t my friend color in my Coloring Book?

You can only color in your own coloring book. To get your own coloring book, please visit the W Shop’s Fun Stuff section.

 

Why can’t I print the pages in the How to Draw book?

While you cannot print the “How to Draw” pages in the book, you can always log into Webkinz WorldTM, open the book and draw while you look at the computer. If you really want to print out a page, just click “Alt” and “Print screen” and then go into a program like Microsoft Word. Go to Edit and click ‘Paste.’ You can then print off the page.

 

How do I get the Studio and make a show?

First, you pick up a studio at the W Shop. Go to the Fun Stuff section and look under ‘Webkinz Studio.’ The Webkinz Studio costs 1000 KinzCash. You may have to use the arrow buttons of the W Shop to scroll through the items to find the “Webkinz Studio.”

Once you’ve bought the Webkinz Studio put it in your room, and have your pet walk to it to open the studio.

It will have some actors and backgrounds when you start, but you can buy more actors and play sets at the W Shop (also in the ‘Fun Stuff’ section). To start your show, type in a title, choose a background, a sky style, and a type of music. Click ‘next’ to continue. Choose two actors. Drag them into the boxes. Click ‘next’ when you’re ready to continue. Choose a camera angle. This is how your actors will look on the screen. Click next to continue. Click on the dialogue boxes to enter your actor’s dialogue. Choose an emotion and an action from the drop down menus next to your actors. When you’re happy with your scene, click ‘next scene’ to continue making scenes. When you think your show is finished (you can make up to 15 scenes), click ‘end show.’ You will see a screen with a red curtain. Click ‘play’ to see your show, ‘save’ to save your show, and ‘edit’ to go back and change something in your show. Clicking ‘menu’ will take you back to the main menu.

When you’ve watched your show, you can edit it or save it. If you’ve already saved two shows, you will have to choose which show you want to overwrite with the new show.

Please remember to check out the instructions in the studio, if you ever have any problems or questions.

 

How do I add Actors and Play sets to my Studio?

To find more actors or sets, please visit the W Shop’s “Fun Stuff” section and pick up some actor packs or play sets. To add the packs or play sets to your studio, just open your studio and then click on “Add new Actors/Sets.” Drag and drop the actor or play set from your dock into the box on the screen. If you are trying to add a play set that you already have, or trying to add an actor that you’ve already got two of, you won’t be able to. You can only have one play set of a specific type, and two actors of a specific type.

 

How many shows can I have at once?

You can save 10 shows at once.

 

My show didn’t save – can I get it back?

In order to save your show, you have to click the ‘save’ button when the show is finished. If you did not click the save button, the show would not be saved. Unfortunately, there’s no way of recovering a show that has not been saved.

 

Why do all of my Studios have the same shows on them?

You’re only allowed to save ten shows. No matter how many TV studios you purchase, all of your studios will have the same shows on them.

 

Why can’t I play on my friend’s Studio?

The Webkinz Studio can only be used by the player who purchased it. You cannot watch their shows or make shows while visiting a friend.

 

Why can’t I use a certain word in my TV show?

We do not allow inappropriate words in the Webkinz Studio. If we find that you’ve used an inappropriate word, you will have to change it before you can continue to create your show.

My friends never get my invitations for KinzChat or the Tournament Arena – what do I do?

First, make sure that you’re online by clicking on the cell phone at the top of the Dock and click on POWER to connect. Next, make sure your friend is online – their face will be green. In the Tournament Arena, click on the checkbox next to their name and then select “Invite Friend”. You will only have this option if they are online.

My friend has a yellow smiley face – what does that mean?

If you see a yellow face next to your friend’s name on your Friends List, that means that they have their ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature on. This means that your friend is busy and does not want to be disturbed right now. When their face turns green again, you will be able to invite them to visit or play games again.

 

Why can’t I type what I want?

The Internet can be an unsafe place, so we offer two types of restricted chat.

KinzChat is entirely constructed, which means you may only use pre-constructed phrases. This way, there is no way for anyone to ask or say anything inappropriate. Also, there is no way to exchange any personal information.

In the KinzChat PLUS area, players may type using their own words and phrases as long as they are not on the excluded list of words and phrases developed for this form of chat.

To upgrade to KinzChat PLUS a parent must grant access by using the tools in their Parent’s Account. Parents can log in to their Parent’s Account in the Parent’s Area which can be accessed using the button link on our home page.

I want an underwater room. How do I get one?

To be able to purchase an underwater room, you will need to adopt an underwater pet, like a Fantail Goldfish or a Manatee. We will be releasing more underwater pets in the future.

 

Why did the floor of my underwater room stop moving?

Our underwater rooms require a fast computer to show all of the nifty underwater effects. If your computer appears to be slower than required, we will automatically turn off effects like the floor moving to make sure that everything runs quickly.

 

I want a treetop room. How do I get one?

To be able to purchase a treetop room, you will need to adopt a flying pet, such as a Toucan or a Bat. Also, if you register a flying pet as one of your first ten adoptions, you’ll receive a brand new treetop room for free!

 

Why does the background of my treetop room look different than it did before?

The background in any treetop room will change depending on the time of day. There are four different backgrounds, so try logging in at different times if you want to see them all.

 

FOR PARENTS

Questions most frequently asked by parents.

 

How does this site appeal to small children?

The Webkinz web site has been designed for users aged 6-13+ and is intended to include content for all ages and levels of computer skill within that range. We have designed our site to reach the widest possible audience within that range. We understand that some of our games and jobs may be difficult for younger users, but our research and experience has shown that our younger audience can quite enjoy the site with the support of an adult.

That said, we have designed some of our games and jobs for younger children. Both the Fence Painting and Shoe Store Clerk (both memory games) have proven fun and achievable by younger users. In the Arcade, we recommend Wacky Zingoz and Tulip Trouble 2.

Younger users can also enjoy other methods of making money, including the Wheel of WOW, Wishing Well and the Care Award, and best of all, the 5-6 year old questions in Quizzy’s Question Corner – over 1000 age appropriate, curriculum-based questions that make KinzCash faster than any of the games.

We hope that this information will help you and your child continue to enjoy Webkinz World as much as we do.

 

Is KinzChat safe?

We at Webkinz World understand your concerns. In our KinzChat area, the chat is entirely constructed. There is no way for users to type what they want, exchange any personal information, ask or say anything inappropriate. We control everything the users are able to say. In the KinzChat PLUS area, players can type what they want, but restricted words and phrases will not be displayed to the other players. We try to exclude proper names and numbers to avoid the disclosure of personal information. If you do not want your child to chat in the less restricted KinzChat PLUS area, don’t consent to their access to this area. If they already have access to KinzChat PLUS, you can block their access in the Parent’s Area using the controls in your Parent’s Account.

 

What are some tips on managing my child’s time in Webkinz World?

Webkinz World is a wonderful place to play. It is a friendly and imaginative environment for children to enjoy. Because Webkinz World is so much fun, it can be difficult to limit your child’s time on the computer.

Here are some tips about how to limit your child’s time in Webkinz World:

    1. Use Webkinz World as a reward. Your child will be able to play in Webkinz World AFTER he or she has finished their homework, done their chores, etc.
    2. Decide what you believe is an appropriate amount of time for your child to be on the computer and discuss it with your child ahead of time. Set a timer, if need be. When the timer goes off, so does the computer.
    3. Encourage offline play with the Webkinz plush toy; encourage your child to draw pictures of the rooms they’d like to design, make pictures of their Webkinz pets (scrapbooks are lots of fun), and have parties for the Webkinz pets. Invite some friends over in the real world and celebrate all things Webkinz!

 

How does Webkinz World promote learning?

Webkinz World is a great place to learn and play! Your child can learn lots of fun facts at Quizzy’s. The questions at Quizzy’s are age-appropriate, and most are educationally based.

We also have several arcade games that promote learning:

  • Booger Gets an A promotes addition skills
  • Lunch Letters helps children to learn how to type and spell
  • Quizzy’s Word Challenge aids in spelling
  • Operation Gumball encourages children to think logically

Your child can also learn about money in Webkinz World; by earning KinzCash, your child learns how to save and spend money.

Webkinz World also helps to teach children about responsibility, caring for a pet, and getting along with others.

 

Is the Wishing Well and the Wheel of WOW gambling?

Ganz does not endorse, nor condone gambling. Webkinz World does not contain ANY gambling. Gambling requires that a player put in a wager to play, and hence have the chance to lose that wager. Webkinz members cannot lose KinzCash playing any of our games. There are no wagers involved at all.

While the Wishing Well and Wheel of WOW use visual metaphors that are sometimes associated with gambling, there is no gambling involved. They are merely a method of giving out random prizes to our members. They are our version of giving out a door prize, a thank you just for showing up. As kids love getting free prizes, naturally these features are highly popular on our site.  Thus, we limit access to these games to once per day.

We do take concerns of this nature very seriously and welcome suggestions on how to improve our site, including these features.

 

Why does the Webkinz Studio allow personal information to be entered!

Please note that only you can see what you write in the Webkinz Studio. There is no way for others to see the movies you make with the Studio. When you are visiting a friend in Webkinz World, you cannot use their Studio, and they cannot use yours.

 

How do we feed the Webkinz Pet?

To feed your child’s Webkinz Pet, just go to the W Shop in the Things to Do menu and visit the “Food” section. You can buy foods by clicking on the food and then clicking ‘Add to Cart.’ When you’ve added all the foods to your cart, click ‘Check Out,’ and ‘Buy Now.’ The foods you’ve purchased will appear in your Dock. Drag the food to the Webkinz Pet’s Dock picture (in the lower left side of your dock) or the Webkinz Pet’s avatar in the room. The Webkinz Pet will ‘eat’ the food and comment. The hunger meter also will go up.

 

Will my Account Expire?

Webkinz World accounts do not expire.  You can always access your account as a Free Player with certain limited features. Adopting a Webkinz Pet gives you full access to the regular (non-Deluxe) features of the site for one year from the day of that last Webkinz Pet’s adoption. You can also purchase a Deluxe Membership at Ganz eStore for the most comprehensive access to Webkinz World features, without having to adopt a Webkinz Pet.

 

What if the Webkinz Pet gets sick?

If your child’s pet gets sick (if it has a green snout and an ice pack on its head), please take it to Dr. Quack’s Clinic. Your child will have to purchase medicine for it to help make it feel better. If a Webkinz Pet is just unhealthy, please feed it some healthier foods and give it some more exercise. Sometimes Webkinz Pets get sick if they are left alone for long periods of time without care and their health meter drops too low.

 

Can Webkinz Pets die?

No, Webkinz Pets cannot die. Webkinz Pets can get sick, but they cannot die.

 

How often is Webkinz World updated?

We update Webkinz World at least once a month.

 

Where do we play games?

Your child can play games in three places:

    1. The Tournament Arena – Your child can play in tournaments and play against other Webkinz World players.
    2. The Arcade – Your child can play games by themselves in the Arcade.
    3. The Room – Certain games (available in the Fun Stuff section of the W Shop) are available for the Webkinz Pet’s room. Some of these games can be played against friends when they come to visit.

Your child can also play mini games, or ‘jobs’ in the Employment Office.

 

How do we add a new room?

To add a new room, just click the “House Map” button in your Webkinz Pet’s room and then click “Add Room.” Click on a free square on your map and then choose the type of room you’d like to buy. Click “Buy” to buy the room. You’ll see a message that asks if you’d definitely like to buy the room. Click “Yes” to buy the room.

 

How do we decorate the room?

To add things to a room, please drag them from the Dock into the room. When a green square appears under the item, you can let it go. Please remember that not all items can go into every type of room.

 

How do we adopt a new Webkinz Pet onto the same account?

To adopt a new Webkinz Pet onto your child’s current account, just log in as usual and then click on the Adoption Center on your map. Ms. Birdy will help your child adopt the newest pet. Please make sure to help your child with any adoptions.

 

Does my child get anything on their birthday?

We do not send anything out for our player’s birthdays, but we do send out birthday cake on each Webkinz Pet’s birthday. The birthday cake appears in the Dock. To see when your Webkinz Pet’s birthday is, click on the “My Pets” icon next to the pet picture in the Dock.

 

Should we adopt our Webkinz Pets onto one account, or multiple accounts?

If your child has more than one Webkinz Pet, we always suggest adopting them onto a single account. When you adopt more than one Webkinz Pet onto an account, you also get special bonuses! You get a new room for your second through tenth Webkinz pet, an exclusive item with your second Webkinz Pet and beyond, and a Superbed with your tenth, fifteenth, twentieth pet and every fifth Webkinz Pet beyond that! Adopting more than one Webkinz Pet onto your account is a GREAT idea! Please note that adopting hundreds of Webkinz Pets on a single account will potentially slow down your gameplay experience if you only have the minimum system requirements.

 

How do we earn KinzCash?

There are many ways to earn KinzCash, including the following:

    1. Play games at the Arcade or Tournament Arena.
    2. Answer trivia questions at Quizzy’s
    3. Spin the Wishing Well and Wheel of WOW in the Arcade.
    4. Watch the Today’s Activities page for chances to do special activities.
    5. Do jobs at the Employment Office.
    6. Adopt more Webkinz Pets! You get KinzCash with each new Webkinz Pet.

 

What can we do in the room?

Your child can do lots of things in their Webkinz Pet’s room! Including:

  • Play with the pet

Your child can purchase various interactive items (like vehicles, trampolines, or pools) and the Webkinz Pet can play on these items.

  • Cook

If your child purchases a stove, blender, or sandwich maker, they can drag three foods into the appliance and try to make various foods. There are cookbooks available in the Fun Stuff section of the W Shop.

  • Invite friends to visit

By using the KinzChat cell phone, your child can invite friends over to chat and play in their Webkinz Pet’s room.

  • Play games

Games in the W Shop’s Fun Stuff section are for the room. Your child can play some of these games against the computer, and others against friends.

  • Decorate

Remember; if your child wants to add a new room, just use the ‘House Map’ button and click ‘Add Room.’ Click on a blank space (where you’d like the new room to go), and click on the type of room you’d like.

How will I know if I won a Tournament game? Where do I find my scores?

There are 2 ways, with the VIEW MY RESULTS button and the TOURNAMENT ICON.

VIEW MY RESULTS button: When you have completed a tournament, you are taken back to the Arena. At the bottom right, click on the VIEW MY RESULTS button (it will be activated). For a BEST SCORE tournament, a Leaderboard shows what place you came in and how much KinzCash you won. For a BEST SCORE PLAYER VS. PLAYER tournament, a Tournament Ladder shows how you did, round by round.

Back at the Arena, you can also click on the game you played, choose the tournament type and the tournament you played, identified by the number of players that were in it (8, 16, etc.). If you choose correctly, the VIEW MY RESULTS button should light up.

TOURNAMENT ICON (Gold Cup): Sometimes you finish playing in a tournament before it ends. That means you’ll find out the results later. In this case, the TOURNAMENT ICON, a Gold cup in the top left of your screen, will appear and start blinking. Click on it and then click YES to go to see your latest results.

 

How much KinzCash do I get for winning?

If you want to see how much you can earn from winning a tournament, just click the TOURNAMENT PRIZES button in the Tournament Arena. You can also click on the PAYOUTS button at either the Leaderboard or Tournament Ladder.

The TOURNAMENT PRIZES chart will show you exactly how much KinzCash the tournaments pay out. Remember; when you play a tournament game, you still get whatever KinzCash you earn during the game!

 

What is the icon or gold cup for in the top left corner of the screen?

The Tournament Icon blinks when there are results from a tournament you have played in. Clicking on it will lead to either a Leaderboard (for a Best Score tournament) or a Tournament Ladder (for a Best Score Player vs. Player tournament).

 

I tied with someone else – why did I lose?

With the way we’ve set up all our games, it’s really hard to tie. We decided that if there is a tie, the winner would be determined randomly. This way you both have an equal chance of winning and since you both tied, we think this is a fair way to decide who wins.

 

Why can’t I invite my friend to play a game?

Not all games in the Arena are available for the INVITE A FRIEND function. When you click on a game from the left panel, your Friends List must activate or brighten. If it doesn’t, it means that game is not available at this time to invite a friend to play with.

 

How do I play Switcherooz? There are no instructions!

The object of the game is to have as many of your color of Zingoz on the board at once. Click on a Zingoz to activate it. Click on a dark shaded square and a new Zingoz will appear. Click on a light shaded square and the Zingoz will move to that square. If you move one of your Zingoz next to your opponent’s, your opponent’s Zingoz will change to your color. You win the game if your color of Zingoz dominates the board.

To read more instructions about Zingoz Switcherooz, please buy the game at the W Shop and click on the ‘instructions’ button.

 

How is Chef Challenge scored?

When you create a dish for the Webkinz Chef Challenge, certain judges will like certain ingredients more than others. For example, Ms. Birdy might love tomatoes. If she does, she’ll give you a high score for using them in your recipe. If Dr. Quack hates licorice, he’ll give you a lower score. Pay attention to the judge’s comments and you’ll see which judge likes which food. Remember which judge likes which foods for the next time you play, and you’ll be able to figure out which foods to use to get the best score. Sometimes you might choose a hidden bonus ingredient. Each recipe has four hidden bonuses; when you find them, remember them. If you use a bonus ingredient, you’ll get an even higher score!

 

How is Kinz Pinz Bowling scored?

Kinz Pinz bowling is scored the same way as a real game of bowling!

 

Why do I get a different payout each time I play Kinz Pinz Bowling?

When the game is over, your score, combined with whether you won or lost, determines how much KinzCash you get from the prize pool. Good luck!

 

What happens when I finish all of the questions?

When you’ve answered all the questions at Quizzy’s, you will have TONS of stickers! This means that you’re one smart cookie. It also means that you’ve earned a LOT of KinzCash.

 

Will you be adding more questions?

We will be adding more questions from time to time. If you have run out of Learn and play questions, you can always check the Trivia Archives section to see if there are any Daily Trivia questions from the past year that you might not have answered yet.

 

I got a question wrong. Can I go back and do it over again?

Sorry, but once you’ve answered a question, that’s it!

 

I completed a sub-category. Where are my stickers?

Click on the Discovery Zone sticker book to view stickers for all of the sub-categories you’ve completed.

 

Why are my stats different than in my Quizzy’s Question Corner sticker book?

The stats displayed in Quizzy’s Question Corner sticker book are only for the questions you answered in Quizzy’s Question Corner. The questions that you answer in Quizzy’s Discovery Zone have their own stats, which are displayed in the Discovery Zone sticker book.

 

How often can I do a job?

You can only do a job once every 8 hours. We have done this because we want your Webkinz Pet to rest and play before they work again.

Remember; jobs pay really, really well so you can still make LOTS of KinzCash by doing them once every 8 hours. To see how long you have to wait until you can do your next job, look at the clock over Tabby’s head in the Employment Office.

If you need further instructions, just click the yellow ‘I’ note (for Instructions) on the Job Board.

Deluxe Members also get to do one bonus job each day!

 

Tabby said I don’t have the prerequisite – how do I do the job?

If you’re trying to do a medium job that has a P on it that means you need special skills to do the job. Mouse over the P to find out what skills you need.

For example, right now you’ll see a P on the Ms. Birdy’s assistant job. To do that job, you have to have answered 100 language questions in any age group at Quizzy’s. For more information about how the jobs work, please click on the ‘I’ on the job board for instructions.

 

I don’t get how a job works – can you give me more instructions?

THE NEWZ & KINZPOST

Questions about the Newzpaper and KinzPost.

 

When does the new edition come out?

We change the Newzpaper every few days, so keep coming back to see all the latest greatest happenings in Webkinz WorldTM!

 

What is KinzPost?

When you receive KinzPost mail, you will see a number on the mailbox icon located along the top of your Dock. Just click on your mailbox and you will see the list of messages. When you close the letter, it will disappear.

KinzPost is where you can go to send a postcard to an email address. You can also send a gift or a note to a friend on Webkinz WorldTM. You can find the KinzPost building either in your Map Stuff Dock or on your Map of Kinzville.

 

How do I get on the High Score list?

Getting on the high score list can be tough sometimes. But guess what? Every month the magic scoreboard fairy comes along and clears off all the monthly high scores, so everyone has another chance to see their name up in lights.

 

I got a Tournament Arena high score, but I’m not on the Scores and Achievements high score page!

We update the Tournament Arena scores every night at midnight. If you have a high score in the Tournament Arena, you will see it on the ‘Scores and Achievements’ page tomorrow.

 

I was on the Great Plays list…now I’m not. What happened?

Since people are always making great plays, their names are constantly being added to the ‘Great Plays’ list. This means that new names are always replacing old ones (the older great plays move toward the bottom of the list, and the newer ones appear at the top). Eventually, your name will disappear from this list, when enough new great plays are added. If you want to get back onto this list, you just need to make another great play!

 

Scores and Achievements page – what’s it all about?

The Scores and Achievements page is a page in the Newzpaper that shows all the great scores from all the fantastic games in Webkinz WorldTM. Check out this page to see the top tournament players, the high scorers in the Arcade, and the trivia experts. Check out the ‘My Scores’ page to find out all about how many times you have played each game, what your average game score is, and what your highest score in a particular game was. This page contains all the game info you need!

 

How do I send things through KinzPost?

Click on the KinzPost building on your Map of Kinzville and choose one of two things to do; you can send a note or send a gift. If you send a note, you will get to choose a message to send a friend on your friends list. If you send a gift, you will be able to choose up to three items to send to a friend on your friends list. Please note that you can only send one gift per day to each friend on your friend’s list. Gifts and notes are received by your friend when they log into Webkinz WorldTM. Read the instructions for more information.

 

How do I open a gift or note?

When you receive a gift or note, you will see a number on the mailbox icon located along the top of your Dock. Just click on the mailbox to open it. From there you can click on your list of items to open each one. The items you received in a gift will appear in your Dock. If you received a note, the envelope will open and you will be able to read it.

 

CLUBHOUSE

Find answers to your questions about the Clubhouse.

 

What’s the difference between KinzChat PLUS and KinzChat?

Thedifference between KinzChat PLUS and KinzChat is the way you chat. In KinzChat PLUS, you can type in your own messages, but if those words and phrases  appear in our restricted word dictionary, the message will not be displayed in the room. In KinzChat, you can use our trusty system of pre-constructed sentences and phrases to share messages with your friends. KinzChat PLUS is designed for our older members and KinzChat is designed for our younger members. Both parts of the Clubhouse are lots of fun!

 

How does one get permission to access KinzChat PLUS?

In order to play in KinzChat PLUS, a parent must first grant access to this child. To grant access please have a parent go to the Parent’s Area using the button link on our home page.

 

How do I turn off my child’s access to KinzChat PLUS?

Please log in to your Parent’s Account in the Parent’s Area to find the control to turn off your child’s access to KinzChat PLUS.

 

Are there different activities in KinzChat PLUS and KinzChat?

No, the activities in the KinzChat PLUS and KinzChat areas of the Clubhouse are exactly the same. The only difference between the two areas is the way you talk to your friends.

 

How do I find my friends in the Clubhouse?

To find your friends in the Clubhouse, use the “FIND MY FRIENDS” dropdown menu on the screen where you choose which room to visit in the Clubhouse. You will be able to find out if any friends are in the same part of the Clubhouse as you and which rooms they are visiting.

 

How do I go to a different room?

You can change rooms at any time by clicking the “Switch Room” button in the upper right corner of the room you are visiting.

 

How do I make friends in the Clubhouse?

In any Clubhouse room, you can open the “Webkinz in Room” menu to see who is in the room and to make friends with people. If you see a yellow smiley face next to the person’s name, they cannot be added to your Friend list. A green face with a little smile next to a friend’s name means you can ask them to join your Friend list. A green face with a big smile next to a friend’s name means they are already your friend. If you want to allow people to be on your Friend list, click the button “Click to allow invites.” If you do not want people to be on your Friend list, click the button below the words, “Click to block invites.”

 

I don’t want people in the Clubhouse asking to be my friend – how do I make them stop?

What if someone said something inappropriate to me in KinzChat PLUS?

If someone says something inappropriate to you in KinzChat PLUS, please use the reporting tool to tell us all about it (the tool looks like a shield).

If we find someone has said something inappropriate, we can either silence them by turning off their KinzChat PLUS typing field, or ban them from entering any KinzChat PLUS areas. The severity and length of time depends on the offense and the number of warnings already issued to the player, but repeated attempts to break our Chat Rules can lead to a player being permanently banned from all social areas using KinzChat PLUS.
