    Gem mining is such a fun experience! It’s peaceful too.

    I have to confess that I really do not love having to choose one gem. This morning I got three absolutely gorgeous gems and of course wanted all of them. Choosing one and letting go of the others was so painful. Of course I will keep mining and hope to get the others on other days. Other than this I do love the mining!

    My favorite place in the mine is at the waterfall. Often I come back into the mine later after I have mined for gems and wander around just enjoying the experience. I love the section with the glowing pink mushrooms, but just as I do in real life, I’m drawn toward the water. I head to the water fall and my pet sits in the middle of the island surrounded by the stream and enjoys the beauty of the waterfall. Ever since I can remember if there is a stream, river, lake, or any natural water feature near by, that is where I could be found, sitting on a large boulder, or on the grassy bank: enjoying the solitude, watching animals come to the water ,and taking pleasure in the musical sounds of the splashing, and moving water as it made it’s way over the rocks etc. on it’s path down stream. I usually have a book in hand, so places like that became favorite places to read and dream growing up. ♪♫LadyBeauty♪♫

    I was SO EXCITED when I found that the mine was opened!!!!!! I’ve had so much fun exploring the mine! I went clear back to the waterfalls and walked behind them! It was GREAT! I just finished the second level this morning, and ended up using all 6 turns for the Triple Strike Solitaire as well! It was SO HARD to have to sell one of the gems!!!! I’m so looking forward to finding out what we will be using the slag for, not to mention now that we’ve been told that we can craft with our gems I’m bursting with questions as to what we will be able to make! Oh, by the way, Michael Webkinz maybe you can help with this, for some reason, I can no longer get Crafting Bags from the Prize Machine, and I have been saving my prize tickets for them. I could really use some more buttons.

    I must say I love the mine and the design is very well done, and so I am really envious because I am not allowed to play there! I was only allowed to play on the very first day, and since then, all I get every day is the message “done digging. Come again tomorrow”. It makes me really sad.

    I love mining for gems, it’s so fun! And I really love that we get to keep the Wish Tokens we find around Kinzville for the challenge! I didn’t know we got to keep them until Michael mentioned it. I thought they would be like the game tokens and be in your dock, but they aren’t. You can see how many you have when you’re in the Curio Shop, the number shows up to the left of your Kinzcash balance.

    I’m a gem hoarder too, Mandy (lol) Thank you both for a great Podkinz Mini about these two great new features on Webkinz Next. The Gem Mine is absolutely fantastic—I love exploring it with my pet—and the Curio shop is a welcome addition to Next. I wish the Aztec items were a little less expensive but they’re not cheap in Webkinz Classic either, so I can’t complain. Love these updates to ‘Next’!

    I have a question, for wishes, how do you get tokens?

    • Sally Webkinz says:

      The main ways are as login gifts and winning on the Wheel of WOW. They may appear in other prize pools, as prizes for challenges, floaties clickies, added to holiday gifts, etc.
