First there were Webkinz pets, then there were Lil Kinz pets. In April 2009 Ganz expanded the Webkinz line with the addition of “Signature” pets. In January 2010 Ganz announced a new line of Signature Pets. This new “Signature Endangered Species Collection” features similar styled plush pets and special virtual items attainable upon online adoption. When adopted, you are given a special piece of furniture specific to a Signature Endangered room theme in Webkinz World, a “Sanctuary Gift Pack” that includes exclusive flooring and wall paper, and a wish token.
In December 2009, it was also revealed that Ganz was releasing a line of “Endangered Signature” pets. Unlike the other Signature pets, pets from the Endangered line come with a special Wallpaper and Flooring. Instead of getting an Exclusive item from the regular Signature theme, they get an Exclusive item from the Endangered Signature theme. All Signature Endangered pets are based on actual endangered animals. The very first of the Signature Endangered Line is the beautiful Bengal Tiger which came out in March 2010. The final addition to the series, the Red Panda, was released a year later in March 2011 and with this release it officially ended the production of the Signature Endangered line of Webkinz pets.
What are Webkinz?
Each Webkinz stuffed animal and Webkinz accessory comes with an 8-character code. By registering this code on the Webkinz website, you “adopt” this pet in the virtual Webkinz World. Without the Secret Code, the user may not get access to the Webkinz world. Toy animals that are missing tags are not supposed to be sold by retailers, and removal of the tags without purchasing the animal is considered shoplifting. If a user forgets a login name and password, they can always go back to the Secret Code to gain access. Without the Secret Code, a user cannot recover a lost account. Currently, accounts expire within one year, unless another Webkinz animal is purchased, and that animal added to the user account.
Webkinz Signature Endangered Species Collection March 2010 – Signature Endangered Bengal Tiger No More Signature Endangered Ganz has now officially released a statement saying that there will no longer be anymore Webkinz Signature Endangered pets produced. These webkinz are expected to become extremely valuable through the coming years, so if you are one of the many who loved these pets but never got the chance to purchase one, then you better go to your nearest Webkinz retailer ASAP.
Once a Webkinz owner signs up the owner gets access to the world of Webkinz. There are currently over one million registered users on the Webkinz website. Every time a Webkinz owner registers with the site he or she is given a virtual pet. The owner of the Webkinz can then assign his or her virtual pet a name, gender and also choose an avatar. Essentially a user ‘adopts’ a virtual pet online.
Once a Webkinz owner has adopted a pet online, a Webkinz owner is given a room, and some virtual furniture to decorate the room. Each virtual pet has its own sets of advantages and disadvantages, and must be fed using a special food item assigned to it.
Adopted pets have a happiness meter, a health meter, and a hunger meter. So in essence a Webkinz owner has to log on to the website regularly to play and entertain the pet. If the levels of any of the previously mentioned meters fall the pet takes ill and has to be taken to ‘Dr. Quacks’ for treatment, however taking the pet to Dr. Quacks usually costs Kinzcash.
Webkinz, a Ganz website offers you services such as online games featuring your favorite Webkinz pets, lets you take a virtual tour of the Webkinz, a Ganz website, gives you the online catalogue, which is different for different pets of your choice and the site also features trading cards through which you can trade points with other users and end up winning goodies and Kinzcash. The Kinzcash can then later be exchanged with goodies on offer on the website.
