Webkinz Day

The most up-to-date image and information guide on Webkinz Classic items, events, and more!

Webkinz Day is an annual holiday on April 29 to celebrate the launch of Webkinz. The event typically includes an in-game login gift and opportunity for players to spin the Super Wheel. A variety of sales are also available at the eStore. In early years, partnered retailers offered Webkinz Day sales and promotional activities at participating physical stores.


The first Webkinz Day celebration took place on April 29, 2006. While the game officially launched on April 15, 2005, the date April 29 was selected for the anniversary celebration due to the proximity between April 15 and Easter Sunday in 2006[1]. Webkinz Day celebrations have continued to take place on April 29 each year.

Login Gift and Activities

Players who log in on April 29 receive a Webkinz Day Gift Box. The box typically contains a trophy, group print, cake, Wish Token, and Kiwi Bird Medallion Box. Players also receive a KinzPost holiday card[2].

Players can also visit the Today's Activities page to spin the Super Wheel.
>> Click here to see the Archive of past Super Wheels. Webkinz Day Super Wheels are labeled Apr 29.

In recent years, a Deluxe Preview Week has also taken place from April 29–May 5 each year.

A variety of non-recurring activities have been offered throughout the years including Click-to-Win events, special Clubhouse rooms, and various promotions on Webkinz Newz, as well as additional activities to promote the release of a new fan-designed pet each year, which typically debuts on April 29. Major anniversary celebrations are noted in the Major Celebrations section.

Kiwi Bird Medallion Collection

In 2019, a recurring Pet Medallion collection event was introduced. From April 1–30, players can collect floating Kiwi Bird Medallions each day (limited to 4 per day for Free and Full Members and 5 for Deluxe Members). Players who collect 100 Medallions can adopt the Kiwi Bird on their accounts. The Kiwi Bird can be adopted at any time, but the floating Kiwi Bird Pet Medallions are only available during April.

Players also receive a 25x Kiwi Bird Medallion Box in their Webkinz Day Gift Box. On April 29, 2021, a glitch prevented the box from disappearing from a player's dock after being opened. The glitch was resolved later in the day and has not occurred in subsequent years.

Major Celebrations

Webkinz Day ExtravaGANZa

Webkinz Day ExtravaGANZa was an event held from April 25–27, 2008, and May 1–3, 2009. Certain retailers partnered with Ganz to host Webkinz Day events at their stores. These locations offered Webkinz-themed games and activities for visitors to play, as well as exclusive plush pet giveaways. Activities included coloring pages and real-life versions of the Jellybean Challenge, Wheel of WOW, and Wishing Well.

In 2008, the first 500 customers who made purchases of $10 or more at participating retailers received a free Webkinz plush with a special Webkinz Day ExtravaGANZa tag. In 2009, any $15 purchase allowed customers to purchase a Webkinz Day ExtravaGANZa pet for $1. These pet codes expired on May 31 to discourage reselling.

During the 2008 ExtravaGANZa, an in-game click-to-win event was also held featuring flying pigs. When players clicked on the pigs, they received Jellybeans. The flying pigs did not return in 2009[3].

Year 5 Anniversary

From April 23–29, 2010, players could search for Goober in the Clubhouse each day to collect rockets in the Goobatomic Rockets promotion. The event functioned similarly to the early Leprechaun Chase and Trick or Treat events, with Goober moving between Clubhouse rooms.

Players who collected all 10 rockets received the Webkinz Day Year 5 Fireworks Machine. Players who collected 50 rockets received the "Collecting is a Blast" badge[4].
