Happy New Year From Your New Mayor!


Happy New Year! I am so thrilled today to take over as the new Mayor of Kinzville! Dr. Quack has done a fantastic job as Mayor and I hope that I can live up to the high standards he set.


I’m so excited that my new role as Mayor will let me introduce players to some of the cool stuff that eStore has to offer. Once a month we will hold a Player Appreciation Day upon which we will be giving away a gift from eStore!


I am happy to announce that our very first player appreciation day will be held on Saturday, January 26, 2019. Log into Webkinz World that day to have your first Player Appreciation Day gift added to your dock– a three pack of 2017 Winterfest Cookies!



Drag the box of Winterfest Cookies into your pet’s room to open it. Once it’s opened, your cookies will appear in your Dock. Drag and drop a Winterfest cookie onto your Webkinz to feed your pet. Each time you do, you’ll have a chance to win a prize from a prize pool that includes the 2017 Grand Prize: the Snow Fort Slide!


As Mayor I look forward to working hard for the citizens of Kinzville. I will be sharing changes and updates to Webkinz World on release dates, and I will keep you posted on future Player Appreciation Days featuring more awesome eStore prizes!



Mayor Sophie Stockwell

    I’ve been trying to purchase a deluxe membership on sale too. The system is not allowing me to do so. Could you please help?

    I never got that rink side lamp, so fingers crossed! I also like those beautiful skater outfits. And I could always use more bleachers, so I’m really looking forward to the 3-pack of 2017 winterfest cookies! Thanks Mayor Sophie!

    I tried to buy a deluxe membership today for half price but it just says the URL can not be found. Can someone please tell me what I’m doing wrong. We tried to contact customer support, but they’re closed. We also commented on Facebook, but no reply yet. Thanks, Sparkle

      I had the same issue, buy it as a gift. That worked for me. I have a problem with that every year and can never remember how to.

      I read elsewhere on another thread (where someone couldn’t order on Black Friday due to a problem on estore’s end) you call them today (1/2/19) they might be able to get you the membership at that price. You’re not the only one to experience this problem.

    Yes, yes,yes. Would love to move doors.

    Thank you Sophie and Webkinz/Ganz team members. Mom and I just got our 4 deluxe memberships that we get every Jan 1st for the 50% off and we got them all without a hitch this year! Neither of us really like the cow though. Is there a way to trade codes? Probably not but it would be nice since we miss out on some pets we really like because the memberships are full price at the time they are offered.

    • Anathema says:

      I feel the same way about that antelope or whatever it was before the flying cow. I really reeeeeeeally with they’d offer a backup choice, or chance at past pets as a plan B. There are past pets I had no choice but to miss out on, and would love to get. And worse, now sometimes they are offered again, but as points premiums, and never at the rare times I can afford a splurge on points.

    The 2017 Winterfest Cookies prize pool has the cool snow castle slide as the grand prize not the ski slopes wallpaper. I forgot exactly what the slide was called, though.

    This is off topic, but do you think that you could add a feature to change the name of your Webkinz? I have a few pets with the same name (I have a lot so it’s hard to keep track of their names). A feature to delete/sell unwanted rooms would be nice as well. And a feature that allows you to move the doors in your pets room, side they are often in an inconvenient spot.

    • grannyjany says:

      Yes, it would be wonderful to move doors.

    • y2jll says:

      I remember reading somewhere that the option to delete/sell unwanted rooms is in the works. So just keep looking :)

    • SugarP says:

      Yes!!! I have been asking for ages for us to be able to rename our webkinz. Literally on every “Ask Fiona” I’ve been putting the same question over and over about renaming them. So far though no response but I am really hoping that it’s one of the projects they’re working on. The moving rooms feature kind of just popped up as a surprise so maybe they don’t want to reveal anything until it’s actually close to being ready.
