Thank you so much TheSpoilerLurker for giving us this new info!!!
Let’s get started with PETS! Up first, we have Simba, the Lion King! (You’ll see why I call him this in a minute!) So this is the Tawny Lion Cub, Tawny Lion Gift Box, Sweete Safari Nook, and Crispy Plantain Chips.
And next, we have whippet…whippet good! (Sorry, bad ’80s music pun! ) I showed you the PSI and PSF last month, but now we have NAMES! YAY! This is the Whippet Puppy, Whippet Puppy Gift Box, Favorite Fireplace Spot, and Short Rib Sliders.
Next up is brains…brraaaaaaaains! The Zombie Bear wants brrraaaaaaaaainssssss! This is the Zombie Bear, Zombie Bear Gift Box, Creepy Zombie Truck, and Brain Booster Smoothie. You might recall the monster truck and smoothie from last month, but now we have NAMES! YAY X 2!
Now for this year’s Halloween pet trio. Ms. Drama (whose cast is no longer itchy, but whose cast is now a MAJOR DRAG because she can’t go to the theme park in a week with her friends…oh, the humanity!) thinks these are foxes. I’m leaning more toward trolls. Who knows? These images don’t yet have names, so we’ll have to wait for either A) the names next month or B) Ganz to show us a bunch of pixellated part-images on that face place I will never join to find out what they are.
Okay, now for why I’m calling the Tawny Lion Cub Simba! This is the Sweet Safari theme. This is what that wood-grained ?? box from last month goes with. (I didn’t *think* it went with the wood and pipe furniture because it was too far away in the database. That wood and pipe furniture is a mini theme called the Industrial theme, by the way! ) Top row: Sweet Safari Wallpaper, Sweet Safari Flooring, Sweet Safari Bed, Sweet Safari Window. Bottom row: Sweet Safari Chest, Simb—err, I mean, Safari Lion Beanbag Chair, Pumb–err, I mean, Safari Warthog Beanbag Chair, Safari Wacky Lamp. Obviously, Ganz is riding Disney’s coattails here, which isn’t surprising, because they’ve done that many times in the past. (When they released the Studio Loft theme, I commented on WKN that my daughter was all excited to have iCarly furniture, and they made sure my comment wasn’t published, lol!)
More estore! This is an unnamed theme that I’m calling the Seashore theme temporarily. It looks to be the sort of stuff that will be released in monthly sales or BOGO sales. Top row: seashell chair, potted palm, driftwood storage bench, driftwood bookshelf. Bottom row: driftwood coffee table, lifeguard chair lamp, starfish rug.
Yet more estore! Top row: Whimsical Bistro Set, Whimsical Bistro Fence Divider (this was in last month’s update, but note how it has changed! It’s now only half as wide as it was.), unnamed wall divider that looks like it goes with the Whimsical Bistro stuff (and this is probably why the first divider changed…I think they were trying to make the divider change appearance upon rotation, but it didn’t work, so they created a second divider), Puppy Pop-Up Tent. Bottom row: Summer Vibes Dresser (and this is what the red furniture I showed you last month is called!), Flamingo Lazy River Ride (NEEEED!!!), Geyser Pool, unnamed octopus balloon that goes with all those animal hot air balloons from last year.
Now for some dispenser-y goodness! None of these have names yet, so I’ll give you my best guess. Top row: robin’s egg candy tree and food, apple limeade dispenser and food. Bottom row: apple tart cart and food, and I’m not sure if this is a dispenser or not, but what looks like a cabbage tree, and a food that was right near it in the system.
Yet more estore! Top row: Jungle Flower Cottage, Candle Cottage, Castle Playhouse. Bottom row: Woodland Tree House, Creepy Crypt House, unnamed CampKinz cabin. The Jungle Flower Cottage is the KinzCottage for August, and that rose border I showed you last month is the tie-in item and is called the Jungle Flower Fence. This ties in with the Sweet Safari theme, as does the candy tree and tie-in I showed you last month, which are called the Berry Butterfly Candy Tree and Berry Butterfly Rug. I showed you the Candle Cottage last month, but note how it has changed…the candles are no longer lit. I find this unnerving, because I made a joke about who would want to live in a house that was on fire, and I’m hoping Ganz didn’t see that, because if they did, that means they’re reading my posts and the thought of that freaks me out. Lurker by name, lurker by nature! The Creepy Crypt House goes with the Creepy Crypt theme from last year, which you can see on the picture guide.
Random newness! Top row: Pineapple Plushy (which code you ought to be able to use as of right now!), unnamed Spring Flower Sofa (goes with the Spring Flower House from Growing Seeds Mystery Box Series 1! And I NEED IT!), unnamed Violet Carriage (which looks like the Red Rose Carriage in the estore, and yes, it’s Fl0ral Favorites, which means I NEED IT! NEED IT! NEED IT!), random rainbow burgers (not sure if it’s a PSF or what). Bottom row: August 2019 WKN Gift Box and the two rare items that will be in it, the Peridot Glasses and the Forest Tile Coffee Table, and a Zingoz Pie Throw Trophy (Ahem. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!1!!!!)
Now let’s talk clothing! Top row: Baby Shark Hat, Baby Shark Suit, Baby Shark Feet, Halloween Cupcake Dress. Bottom row: Luna Moth Antennae, Luna Moth Suit, Luna Moth Slippers, Thanksgiving Cupcake Dress. The Baby Shark set goes in that estore costume box I showed you last month, so that will be estore. (NEED the hat for my Harry Potter account so I can make Victor Krum have a shark head for the Triwizard Tournament!) I’m guessing the Luna Moth will be also be estore, or possibly KinzStyle Outlet. The cupcake costumes (which I NEED!) might be fall mystery bag.
More clothing! Top row: Starry Night Wig (which matches the Starry Night Skirt from the 2014 Awesome Autumn Mystery Bag…you know, the only mystery bag that had clothes and items in the same bag!), Starry Night Dress (which I NEED, along with the wig!), unnamed spider queen tiara and dress. Bottom row: unnamed creepy dolly wig, dress, and shoes, which Ms. Drama says is a direct copy of the doll from the Annabelle horror movie series. I’ll take her word for it, because I’ve never even heard of the movie!
More clothing, and if this isn’t 2019 Christmas Cracker, I will eat the proverbial hat! None of this is named yet, but I can pretty much guess the names. Top row: Topaz Hair Bow, Zircon Hair Bow, Garnet Hair Bow. Bottom row: SQUEEEEEEEE!!!!! NEED! NEED! NEED! Ahem. Sorry for that momentary bout of hysterical squealy girlness! I’m guessing these are called the Holiday Kitten Slippers and the Gingerbread Puppy Slippers, and I NEEEEEED them for my character slippers collection!!!!!
Yet more clothing, this time for the 2019 Super School event! None of this is named yet, but I’ll take my best guess. Top row: Kinzville Academy Boy’s Art Smock, Kinzville Academy Girl’s Art Smock, Marching Band Trombone. Bottom row: Marching Band Cymbals, Marching Band Piccolo or Flute, Kinzville Academy Football Rug. I let out a holy shriek when I saw the piccolo/flute, because I was a Marching Band Geek throughout school, and I played the piccolo and flute. SO EXCITED that my band geeks are getting proper attention for once! So yeah, NEEEEEEED!!!
And yet more clothing! These are all prizes for the 2019 Wacky Zingoz Celebration and are not yet named. I’m guessing they will be released by some permutation of WKN/WackyER Zingoz/floaty clicky/Deluxe Challenge/Wacky Challenge. Top row: unnamed Wacky smoothie, unnamed Wacky inflatable raft, unnamed Wacky bumper car, unnamed WackyER Zingoz poster. Bottom row: positively amazing unnamed WackyER Zingoz rug, unnamed WackyER Zingoz backpack, unnamed dandelion hat, unnamed Wacky headphones.
Finally, here are the wallpapers and floorings from that WKN contest, and their respective gift boxes. Top row: Observatory Gift Box, Wallpaper, and Flooring. Middle row: Ocean Overlook Gift Box, Wallpaper, and Flooring. Bottom row: The Loft Gift Box, Wallpaper, and Flooring.

Deluxe Wednesdays in the eStore:
Be sure to get the free Webkinz Lamp Shade Hat on the tenth. It was released as a Deluxe Appreciation gift in the estore back in 2015, and it hasn’t been seen since. For those who like the Growing Seeds Mystery Boxes, make double-darn-tootin’ sure you go shopping on the 17th, because those boxes will only be offered that day plus the day they’re released for everyone, and most likely won’t see the light of day for a good long time thereafter.
