    i know this probably won’t be read but its really important to me. Why don’t you guys do treasure hunt on webkinz newz? i really enjoyed it and would like to know why it isnt there anymore or if its coming back. Thanks!

    Hi guys! i love it when PSIs and PSFs are very extravagant. Like a bed, couch or maybe even some sort of ride! I also love it when they are very true to what the pet is and follows the theme of the pet, which you guys do really well! I love seeing all the PSIs, even for webkinz i probably can’t get! PSIs are actually one of my favorite things about virtual webkinz! Bye!

    Hi Gennelle and Mike! I’ve been playing for three years now and my favorite webkinz PSI and PSF are the bamboo fondue and secluded spa that you get when you purchase the red panda! Not only do I like them my red panda Clover loves them too! Oh and Podkinz rocks!

    Dear Podkinz, my favorite PSI would have to be the Webkinz Signature Timber Wolf’s. I do not have this pet, put my favorite PSI that I do have is the Webkinz Signature Bengal Cat’s psi bed, the Cozy Canopy Bed. My favorite pet food is Webkinz Signature Bengal Tiger’s pet food the Roasted Rib Royale. I do not have this pet yet, but I’m getting it for Christmas. See ya later Podkinz!
