Hey everyone! With all the craziness happening in the world recently, many of us are now practicing social distancing by working from home, switching to online coursework, or simply voluntarily flattening the curve by avoiding unnecessary public interactions. I’ve personally been able to find more time for Webkinz, and apparently others have too– according to this article from MassLive– which states that the number of online users has increased by 25% in just the last week! This influx has rolled over into Gymbo’s as well with the return of old faces and the welcoming of new ones. With the increase in popularity and more free time (at least for me), I thought it would be useful to go over some of the current events in Webkinz World so that you’re not missing out on any important prizes and freebies.
With St. Patrick’s Day behind us, the month of March is nearly over, but there’s still lots to do in WW. Here’s a list of what I’m doing as I login to my accounts. Please comment if I’m missing anything! All bold headers are also links to articles in Webkinz Newz or the eStore.
1. Mayor in the Park – Sophie Stockwell is giving away gift boxes for visiting her in the park. There are four new prizes: Parade Hot Dog (displayable object- not food!), Kinzville Souvenir Cap, Ribbon Barrier, and Confetti Floor Tile. On now through March 22.
2. KinzCash Coin Tile in the Spring Melt Room in the Clubhouse – Visit the Sweet Spring Raccoon in the Spring Melt Room in the Clubhouse to get a free KinzCash Coin Tile, every day from now through March 31.
3. Deluxe Preview – with the Deluxe Preview on, you can complete the Deluxe Challenge on ANY account. However, with only 6 days left in the preview, you need to start TODAY:
Make 30 Wishes on Wishing Well 2 in the Arcade
Earn 280 KinzCash playing Get Eleven Solitaire in the Arcade
Sign up your pet for any 20 classes at the Kinzville Academy
The prize is a Soothing Shower Stall, which is a Decoration (wall item). It’s pretty neat in the room.
4. New Deluxe Prize Machine and Prize Klaw items – Along with the Deluxe Preview, there are more opportunities to snag some of the new prizes. Be on the lookout for these two games in Today’s Activities. Check the link to see the prizes!
5. Deluxe Day Saturday – All paid deluxe players will be able to get the Deluxe Day item on Saturday. Go to Today’s Activities to claim the prize, the Water Cooler (dispenser!). NOTE: Deluxe Preview accounts cannot obtain this gift.
6. Community Codes – As always, when you have some downtime you should enter in Community Codes. There are 7 that expire at the end of the month, and now is a great time to get ahead on newer ones as well.
7. Spring Goslings – for the next 3 days, be sure to pick up the one, two, or all three of the Spring Goslings! They are on sale for 8500 points for Deluxe Members.
Looking forward: We’ll make more posts about upcoming events as always, but be on the lookout for the Dex Dangerous arcade challenge which starts next Monday, March 23. That’s all I got, did I miss anything? What are you doing to pass the time in Webkinz World?
