Special Report – With Steve Webkinz!


Hi everyone, Steve Webkinz here. In today’s special report, let’s take a look at some of the recent changes to Webkinz Newz.



WebkinzNewz.com began as an official information site for Webkinz.com. When Ganz Studios began developing new games outside of Webkinz, there was an effort to create a single portal which tied all of these various properties together. For this purpose, Webkinz Newz then became part of the much larger Ganzworld.com site. Features like an arcade with its own reward currency and prizes were created to add incentive for exploring all around the GanzWorld portal.


Webkinz Newz: 2010 


GanzWorld: 2017


As the other Ganz games ran their course and closed down, we’ve returned back to where we started, —with GanzWorld only featuring Webkinz Newz. On the back end, there has also been an ongoing process of moving everything away from unreliable data centers (which led to repeated site down time) and into a much more stable cloud environment.


To make the site run more efficiently in this new environment, not only was it streamlined down to only include Webkinz related news and information, but other features like the GanzWorld Arcade were also removed. However, the “Moneyz” currency earned on Webkinz Newz accounts can still be redeemed for prizes and sent back to Webkinz accounts.



Webkinz Newz remains your #1 source for all the latest news about Webkinz!

      On NEWZ BLOG, click on Recent News. Either go to page 5 or type in the search bar – Super Mystery Bags. Look for “Special Report with Mandy Webkinz: Super Mystery Bags!” and click on Read More. Hope this helps.

      go to recent news and jump to page 5 scroll down to the story about mystery bags and click to read and it should pop up. As more news is posted each older story will move down the list and then to the next page 7,8,9 and so on. Hope you get it.
