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.
Just like the other types of Webkinz, these plushies come with a code that can be used to adopt them in Webkinz World. With the adoption, members will get a Wish Token, an “eStore-quality pet specific item”, and an exclusive item from the new Signature Theme. The Regular Signature Pets are released at a rate of one per month. They are both more detailed, realistic, and more expensive than the Webkinz and Lil Kinz pets. They also have limited availability.
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.

Word is that the Small Signature pets were created by Ganz as a response to customers who thought that the Webkinz Signature Pet line was too expensive. The small signature line was retired from the Webkinz line-up in March 2011. The final addition to the small signature line was confirmed to be the Small Signature Black Lab.

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.
