Webkinz Desktop App is Available Now!


Back in March we announced the development of our browser-free, full-screen Desktop App for Windows. Well, the wait is over and the application is ready to download today!


Click here to get Webkinz Desktop App for Windows.



Once the download completes, run the installer and you’ll get the new app with an icon on your desktop. Our app automatically updates itself, so you’ll always have the latest and greatest version – no more downloads needed!



Again, this version is for Windows computers only, but we’re happy to announce that the Mac version is going very well and we expect it to be in release state much sooner than first planned! Stay tuned. Also, as a reminder, this application does require the Flash player to remain on your computer, but if you’re playing Webkinz on your PC now, you already have Flash and nothing needs to change.


Finally we’d like to put out a special thanks to all of the Webkinz players who helped us beta test our Desktop App. With your input we’ve created the best, most secure way to play Webkinz ever!


Have fun and let us know below what you think of the new app! We love reading your feedback.

    I’ve played Grand Grotto on the desktop app several times without a problem, but 3 times I’ve received an error message that logged me out of the game and froze my screen. Since I have no alternate screen running in the background, the only thing I can do is reboot my laptop. This is REALLY frustrating when I only have a short amount of time to play, and I have to spend some of it rebooting my laptop due to the error message. I wish you would allow us to minimize the desktop app. Then I could go into task manager and end the app without rebooting my laptop.

    Hello! When I click on the “Click here…” I get a message on the bottom of my screen that says ‘this type of file can harm your computer’. Really? Now what?

      Files that are the same type that Webkinz is have been used in the past to damage computers, however I can assure you that the Webkinz desktop app is safe.

    I downloaded the Macintosh version of the desktop app. It states it requires Flash to be downloaded and installed. I have the latest version of Flash, but the desktop app does not recognize it. OS 10.14.2 on an iMac

    Can someone please help me! I installed the app on my windows 10 laptop, which has adobe flash through microsoft edge. The app will not let me open it, it keeps saying i need to download Adobe flash snd Adobe keeps saying i already have flash. I checked my settings and flash is enabled. What else can i do??

    • Steve Webkinz says:

      The desktop app requires a different version of Flash player than the one you have installed for your web browser. Click on the link provided in the system message to download the correct version.

    Does the desktop app not have the “Free Prizes” option in the “Things to do” menu? I’ve looked to see if there was an article about it but couldn’t find one. I miss watching videos for kinzcash!
