Update #325: What’s New!


Hello there, it’s me again—your mayor, Dr. Quack! I’m pleased to tell you about all the new and exciting things we have planned in Webkinz Classic for the next few weeks! Let’s have a look, shall we?



  • We’ve updated some of our Recess prizes! The next time you take your pet on Recess at the Kinzville Academy, you might win some pieces from the Kinzville Academy Basketball uniform, a Sheet Music Floor Tile, or a Report Card while digging for Buried Treasure.



  • We’ve also added an all NEW Kinzville Academy Bathroom Stall to the Recess Wheel! To make room for the new prizes, the Booger Plushy and the Kinzville Academy Bus have been retired.



  • Watch for the floating bus here on Webkinz Newz starting TODAY, Wednesday, August 25th, for our Catch the School Bus event! When you see the floating school bus, click on it to win a daily prize of either a previous Super School Giveaway instrument, or a NEW piece of clothing from our KVA Basketball, Football, or Soccer team “Away” uniforms!



  • Our 2021 Acorn Collection Event begins next Wednesday, September 1st! Throughout the month of September, visit the Map of Kinzville on the Webkinz Classic desktop app and send requests to your friends. As you reach each milestone collecting acorns, you earn a cool new prize! This year’s grand prize for collecting 50 acorns is a Kinzville Antiques Shop! And if you finish your collection before the end of the month, you can start collecting all over again!



  • Our latest Webkinz Days of Play event runs from Saturday, September 11th, until Sunday, September 19th! Log in each day to the Webkinz Classic desktop app during those dates to receive bonus plays of your favorite Magical Forest activities!



  • Our next Deluxe Day is on Sunday, September 12th! When the day arrives, just visit the Today’s Activities schedule on the Webkinz Classic desktop app to get your special prize for September: a Yellow School Bus!



  • Our next Player Appreciation Day is on Saturday, September 18th! On that day, log in to your Webkinz Classic account on either the desktop app or the mobile app to receive your special prize for September: a Dirt Patch Hopscotch! This Ganz eStore prize item can be sent, traded, and sold.



  • Our 2021 Fall Fest event runs from Monday, September 20th, until Thursday, September 30th! Watch for floating leaves to appear across your screen on Webkinz Classic (desktop app AND the mobile app). When you see one, click on it to receive a fun fall prize!



  • Once again during Fall Fest, you can also collect complimentary prizes by picking up some 2021 Fall Fest Soda from the Ganz eStore, or from the WShop for eStore Points. Feed the bottles of soda to your pet for a cool prize matching the 2021 Fall Fest leaf prizes, and for a chance to win this year’s grand prize: a Fall Fest Food Truck Dispenser that dispenses a delicious variety of fall food!




  • In September, Deluxe Members will receive their monthly gift box containing a Deluxe Medallion Gift Box filled with pet medallions, a Tween Theme Gift Box which you can use to choose an item from the Tween room theme, a Wish Token—and of course—the month’s special clothing prize: a Fall Leaf Hat!



  • Deluxe Members will receive their next monthly challenge next WEDNESDAY, September 1st! If they complete all the tasks before the end of the month, they’ll receive a Friendly Froggy Tea Set, along with a NEW Friendly Froggy Bunk Bed!



  • Look for the Antique Shop in the Webkinz Classic desktop app’s Clubhouse from Wednesday, September 1st, until Thursday, September 30th! Inside you’ll find the NEW Baby Monkey virtual pet (available from the Ganz eStore). When you click on them, you’ll receive a daily random prize, consisting of previous Fall Fest prizes!



  • UPDATE: While we had originally planned a floaty clicky with past Fall Fest Sodas, this event was replaced by the Antique Shop in the Clubhouse in which the Baby Monkey hands out past Fall Fest prizes. Our apologies for the confusion.To make up for our blunder, next Thursday, September 23, check Webkinz Newz for a code for a free 2020 Fall Fest Soda!




  • We are also running another Bake Sale 2 event in the Webkinz Classic Kinzville Park starting TODAY, August 25th. The Bake Sale 2 Stand will continue to appear whenever there are no other events on in the Kinzville Park until Tuesday, September 21st! Visit the Kinzville Park each day to look for the stand each day and if you see it, click on it to get your gift box. Inside you’ll find a random baked good which you can either feed to your pet, or you can use it in a stove recipe to create a special prize! You can find all the recipes in the Bake Sale 2 Cookbook, available in the “Books” section of the WShop, under “Fun Stuff”.



  • Once again, we’ve updated the prizes on our daily wheels! Check out everything you can win on the Wheel of Wow, the mobile Wheel of Wow, the Wheel of Deluxe, and the Vacation Wheel!




  • Have you seen all of the new pets, items and features we’ve recently added to Webkinz Next? Download the FREE app (for iOS, Android, and Windows), use your current Webkinz Classic login to create a new account, and check it out!

    Why is the Academy not accessible as of the beginning of 2022?

    • Sally Webkinz says:

      I was able to load the Academy and do one of the classes with no problem. If you haven’t quit and relaunched in a while, that might be worth a try. Then restart your computer if it still doesn’t work, and last resort uninstall the app, download a fresh copy from webkinz.com and reinstall.

    This is very unrelated, but if anyone on the Ganz team reads this, PLEASE please bring back the cookies and cream guinea pig. I saw it once in the estore on Webkinz classic. Now it’s not even on the Ganz estore either. I love that pet, please consider! <3

    Hi! I am having trouble with the floaty leaves! I click on them, but nothing happens. I get no prize.

    HELP! Sorry, didn’t mean to yell, but I need someone in Ganz or on Team Webkinz to please answer my question! I have been getting what I call, “ghost items”, whenever I get a prize on my accounts. It’s usually from a floating prize, be it from a prize box on Webkinz Newz or a prize box on my account. For example: this happened during the floating condiments during the Hot Dog Contest. I would get one ketchup bottle, but would end up with two. When trying to use the ketchup bottle for the recipe, one bottle could not be placed on the stove, yet I could still see the other bottle in the dock. So….I would have to place one bottle in a fridge, then hope the bottle in the dock could be used in the stove. If it didn’t, then I would have to put it into different fridge, and get the one from the other fridge. When I logged out and back in, the “ghost bottle” would be gone. In other words, you can’t tell which item is a “ghost item” and which isn’t, without putting them in separate fridges or wardrobes (if it’s clothing), or…logging out and then logging back in, which I sometimes have to do several times! This problem is now happening with the school bus clothing items that I get from the Webkinz Newz school bus. Is this happening to other players? Can it be fixed? It’s not just a one time thing. It happens on all my accounts, so I’m thinking it’s happening to others. Please fix this! Thank you! :-)

        FYI, this usually happens when you have more than one of the same type of item in a storage box or fridge. When you remove an item that has duplicates in the container, sometimes the remaining items in the storage container or fridge will shift places. Not just move over to compensate for the item you removed, but completely change places with other items. This only happens when you have more than one of the same item stored, and remove one. After the items in the fridge or storage box have all changed places, if you remove one of THOSE items, you’ll get the “ghost items” you’re talking about in your dock. So if I had 2 yellow mustards, right next to each other at the end of a fridge, and I removed one. That first one will be fine in the dock. If the remaining yellow mustard jumped to a completely different location in the fridge (maybe now it’s first, instead of last) and I remove that one, it’ll be a “ghost item.” Because even though it looked like you removed the 2nd yellow mustard, thats not what it really was. When you log out and back in, the real item you removed will show up in your dock instead (Maybe it was actually a ketchup). The way to prevent this from happening is to close the fridge or storage box after you remove one item, then open it again. – Then the items will be back in their correct places, and you won’t have that weird glitch when you remove the 2nd item. – Or just log out and back in :)

    Sally , Michael or Steve , the float BOXES are not showing up :(

    • threehounds says:

      lemony Did you mean the floating school gift boxes are not showing up in your specials catergory? Both the peek-a-newz and school bus boxes are the same except the peek-a-newz box has words on the front and school bus does not.
