Webkinz on iTunes

Here's an entertaining and educational ipod that gives you a free introduction to Webkinz. Simply go to the official iTunes website and type in the keyword webkinz. Look for the link 'Webkinz Webcast' then double click on it. If you use a 56k modem or wireless, it will take a few minutes to load and play.

To get started, click here for iTunes

A window should appear to install iTunes if you don't have it, or you can proceed to the actual site.

There are several other Webkinz iTunes to listen to--some free... some you have to pay. Enjoy!

New Webkinz Tips

I will update this post from time to time and give you important tips for your new webkinz. Be sure to read them, you may be experiencing problems or completely unaware of something.

Tip #1

Problem: As of late, many customers have been complaining of black screen. It relates to a program plug-in problem. This occurs when you buy a new Webkinz pet toy and try to process its code on the Webkinz World website. This black screen, of course, prohibits you from accessing any new pet online. If you are experiencing this problem, here's what you can do to fix it...

Solution 1: If you have Real Player installed on your computer, simply turn it off. Look for a Real Player icon among the other icons near the lower right corner, at the bottom of your screen. If it's there, right click on the icon with your mouse, then left click to shut it off, exit or whatever the case may be. I would do the same for any audio/video software that's currently running on your computer.

Solution 2: When solution 1 doesn't work or isn't an issue - Instead of using your current browser, such as Internet Explorer, MSN, ecetera, download the popular Firefox browser and use it when logging into Webkinz World. The download is free and there's no monthly subscription. Download it here.

Tip #2

Problem: Video and/or blurred graphic problems

Solution: Download the free Mozilla browser. This is a very popular browser and there's no monthly subcription fee. Be sure to write down our address ...

When you finish with the download, enter the above address in your address bar at very top of the Mozilla browser. Be sure to delete whatever address is present before entering our address.
