Visit the Curio Shop and Hunt for Gems in Webkinz Next!

The Curio Shop has finally opened in Webkinz Next! Visit the Curio Shop by heading to Kinzville and clicking on the building, or click on the map icon directly.

What can you do in the Curio Shop? Look for deals on W Shop items and check for rare items by clicking on the Cash Register. You’ll also find the Wish Boutique — a place to spend your Wish Tokens on exclusive items and on past prize items you might have missed!


Of course, it wouldn’t be the Curio Shop if it didn’t have the Gem Mines! You can reach the mines by clicking on the Gem Hunt sign here, or enter it from Kinzville, or click on its map icon.


Run around the mine area with your pet and looking for glowing rocks! Click on them to see what you get — you might get a gem, or you might get slag! You get three chances a day to click on rocks — if you find more than one gem, you will get to pick the one you want to keep! Any slag you find goes directly to your dock (hold on to that for later!). When you’re finished mining, Amanda will offer to buy whatever gem you’ve selected, or you can keep it for your collection. Trade in your completed collection for the Crown of Wonder!

There’s a new Curio Shop challenge to help you get acquainted with all of the new features — look for it in your list of challenges on the left.


So update your apps and head to Kinzville to check out the Curio Shop and the Gem Mining activity — let us know what gems you find!

Download Webkinz Next now — available for iOS, Android and Windows 10.

    So excited to see an updated crown! Can we earn the crown? Cool to be able to run around in the mine, and so great you have added a new feature to the game. Great work from our wonderful team at Ganz.

    Maybe after Arte Fact comes back home from his adventures, he and Amanda Panda can form some kind of a co-ownership of the Curio Shop.

    Oh, my goodness! My grandson was so upset to see Amanda instead of Arte! I must say that I was SO excited that the mines were FINALLY open and I LOVE the layout and the mechanics! I’m wondering what we are going to get to do with the slag that we are collecting now????

    The gem hunt rocks! You actually go into the mines with other players! I’ve already bought a rare item. Love that you added Triple Strike Solitaire!

    Yay! I haven’t been on Next in a while because I’d gotten bored with it, but I am certainly going to get on now and check this out! I see Amanda has taken Arte’s place?

    can we please have a clear image of the gem rarity chart? we have no reference for which gem to keep!

    • Wingsfan65 says:

      I agree—knowing which gems are rare would be so helpful! The new gem-hunting game is LOTS of fun and I love being able to explore the cave even after I’ve used up my three gem-hunting (gem-clicking) chances per day. Yesterday, my pet was wandering around the neon pink mushrooms–so cool! Thanks for this great update, Webkinz!

    I’m pretty new playing Webkinz Next. How do you get wish tokens? I’m slowly learning how to play. Thanks! Ajoy65

    • Sally Webkinz says:

      You can win Wish Tokens on the Wheel of WOW. They’re also some of the prizes you can win in the Curio Shop challenge

      • megamom12 says:

        Right now we are just running around the map looking for 5 of them.

      • GoGanz24 says:

        Where can you find how many Wish Tokens you have? I think I have ten so far from doing the challenges, but can’t find them or where it says how many I have. Thank you!

        • Sally Webkinz says:

          You’ll see your Wish Tokens when you’re in the Curio Shop, just like you only see your Arcade Tickets in the Arcade

          • GoGanz24 says:

            Thank you! I found it. I can’t believe I missed it. I had been looking all through my dock and around the edges of the machine thinking I had to add the tokens like with the classic one.

    I just found my first gem and bought a rare item from the new theme! Plus there is a new game in the arcade. Can’t wait to know what the slag will be used for. Still looking for wish tokens, but so far this update ROCKS!

    This looks incredible!!! Slowly but surely we are getting more activities :) Just PLEASE don’t forget about us Mac users! 6 months since it was originally predicted to be released by… is it still being worked on?
