Meet the Pet Buddy Finalists!

We had another crop of AMAZING submissions in our 2021 Pet Buddy Design Contest! It’s so hard to narrow down the list to ten – let alone choose one! That’s why we need your help!


As always, the final decision is up to the Creative Dept. at Webkinz, but we want to get your feedback in a vote later this week. When we are selecting finalists, we try not to judge on a designer’s artistic skill level, but on the concept and how we think the idea could be interpreted by our artists to become a Pet Buddy in Webkinz. Please keep that in mind when considering which design you plan to vote for.



The winner will have their design turned into a virtual Pet Buddy in Webkinz Classic which will be available for Points at Ganz eStore in the autumn!

The grand prize winner will receive a Pet Design Trophy, the winning Pet Buddy, plus 3 months of Deluxe Membership. And all ten finalists will each receive a Summer Super Mystery Bag – courtesy of Ganz eStore!

    I think all of the finalists would make wonderful buddies. It’s hard to choose just one when so many are worthy to win.

    The Robot Robin idea would make a really nice webkinz, it reminds me of Tinkerpup! I love fantasy/sci-fi themed webkinz :)

    I’m loving the Firefly, Ladybug, and Water Sprite! They’re all so cute though!

    The water sprite is adorable! Will there be other people’s submissions as well?

    All of these are fabulous ideas, and such great drawings too! Right now, I think my favorites are; bright idea, the firefly & the kite. I really like some of the others a whole lot too, it’s so hard to decide !!! I hope someday they make a lot of these into pet buddies :)
