We Updated the River Otter Pet Patch!


We love hearing from our players! And when we sneak peeked the River Otter and you said you weren’t crazy about the juggling paws in the Pet Patch, we listened!



We updated the Pet Patch, removing the paws and leaving the river rocks. This cute new Pet Patch reflects how important our players and your feedback are to us!



We love this sweet otter and its new patch so thank you for sharing your thoughts with us!

    I got 2 adorable puppies (teacup and spaniel)with rocks-no hands) YAY! And today I got an otter baby which I love :) . So the 5 spark option was great for me! Thank you :)

    I didn’t personally hate the hands, but seeing it without them looks a lot nicer! Thanks for listening to everyone’s feedback, I think the change was for the best. :)

    Frequently, I get requests for things not in the monthly challenges. Like ski passes, Egyptian things etc. Where do I find these challenges? They are not listed in the left challenge area to see or hide challenges.

      I’m not sure I understand what you’re asking. Do you mean that your pet is making a request? Your pet usually asks for things that are in your dock or are available in the W Shop.

        I think I understand, you’re asking about things coming through on your message center, right? Not pet requests. ndtractorboy05, when you get messages from your friends list requesting these items, they often are from older challenges that you have probably previously completed, or from building projects that they are working on that you may not specifically have. Sally, are there items that can be purchased from Ganzestore that would have building material requests in them? Or possibly anything from the Adventure Park? oh! Also sometimes the requested items can come as part of the Collection events that you access from your Webkinz map, like in May we’ll do the Flower Collection event, and for Valentines in February there’s usaually a heart collection, that kind of thing. ;) Does that help?

          Aha! This was a Next article so I thought they were talking about Webkinz Next. Friends on Classic can send requests for challenges that they’re on — it doesn’t matter if you’ve already done them. And yes, you can receive requests to send building materials. You can find building kits in the W Shop if you want to make your own, but you can only do the regular challenges once.

            I understand and it was on Webkinz Classic because I had the same request I had last year, but NOT ON WEBKINZ NEXT

    I have many people on my friends list I don’t recognize. When I try to delete them, I get told I am not a friend with that person. How do I get rid of them from my friends list so I can add more friends I want on the list?

    I just found the ladybug in Next, but it was see-through! Anyone else have that happen? I got it, so I’m not complaining, but it was weird! :)

    Thank you for listening. The hands did seem kind of creepy to me also. I really like the updates you’ve made.

    Ganz, you guys ROCK for listening to your fans’ feedback! Personally I didn’t mind the juggling paws, but I saw that a lot of people didn’t like them. Way to go, designing team!
