Design a Pet 2021!


Update: We had such a great response to this year’s contest that it is taking us a little longer than we expected to choose the finalists. We will announce the 10 finalists on Friday, February 12, 2021.



Happy New Year! A new year calls for a new pet design contest! We would like you to design a new Webkinz Classic pet that will be sold by Ganz eStore starting on Webkinz Day – April 29, 2021!


Here’s how it works:


Between January 1 and 31, design a pet that you think would make a great addition to Webkinz World! It can be any kind of pet you like! You can use one of the templates provided below or you can create your own drawing. You can enter as many times as you like!


You can use any kind of art supplies that you want – markers, pencil crayons, crayons, or other art materials. While we will not accept images that have computer generated patterns or graphics copied and added to them, participants may use programs like Paint or Photoshop to color and draw freehand. We can’t accept submissions with company logos or sports team emblems. Please make sure you save your images as a jpg, gif, or png.


You don’t need to include a suggestion for the pet’s PSI and PSF but you can if you want!
Submit your drawing to the Pet Design 2021 Gallery in the Share Center by January 31, 2021.
Wait until February 7, 2021 to see if your design is one of the 10 finalists.


The winner will have their design turned into a real virtual pet in Webkinz World and they will receive a code for their pet when it is added to Webkinz World. They will also receive a 1 Month Deluxe Membership to Webkinz, a virtual Pet Design Trophy, and all ten finalists will each receive a 6 pack of 2021 Winterfest Cookies, courtesy of Ganz eStore.

    Hello everyone! I love everyone’s entries so much! Some of them are so creative! Like the Chocolate Dragon that MMTaffyM actually sewed. I wish everyone the greatest of luck in the contest!

    Some of my pet designs I submitted later are showing in the gallery, while ones I submitted before still haven’t shown up :( I hope they are reviewed soon.

    There are a lot of really cool pet designs this year! I especially love the Hairless Cat. I know lots of people think they’re ugly, but sphynx cats are actually very sweet and loving pets!

    How does the 1-month Deluxe membership work if the winner is already a Deluxe member? Does it extend your membership by one month?

  8. MMTaffyM says:

    I submitted my Chocolate Dragon, but my first submission was such a large image that no one can read the descriptions I put in it, so I re-uploaded it in segments so that the pet description, PSF, and PSI could be read.

  9. MMTaffyM says:

    I really wish I could find out which design won.

    Though there was a bit of a delay, you can now find my ili pika and shepsky pup on the webkinz share center. Do check them out! And good luck to all the fellow contestants!
