Rooms can be used for a lot of different activities in Webkinz World. Many items sold in the W Shop are interactive, so players can use them to play games or interact with their pet. Some games such as Air Hockey or Link'd cannot be found in the Arcade, and must either be bought in the W Shop or played in the Tournament Arena. Appliances such as Stoves and Blenders can also be placed in a room and used to cook recipes.
Players are able to customize and decorate their Rooms using nearly any item. While furniture and decorations can be bought and rewarded at many places and events, the W-Shop has numerous themes and decorations always available to buy. However, some items can only be placed in Outdoor rooms (and will clarify).
Furniture such as wardrobes, boxes, and dressers can be used to store clothing and sometimes books and other small items. Refrigerators can be used to store food items only.
Previously, Party Packs could be purchased so that users could invite friends over to their House. They have since been removed from the W Shop, but if a player still has one in their Dock it could be used to have a party. Currently, the only way to invite friends to your House is to send them a request through the cell phone.
Purchasing a Room
Each user receives a free room upon adopting their first Webkinz pet, and continue to do so until their tenth pet. To purchase a room, click on the house icon in the Dock. Once in My House, click on the house map icon in the upper left corner. There should be a picture of a room with a plus sign on it in the upper right corner - clicking on this icon should display the prompt to purchase a room. New Rooms can only be purchased by Full or Deluxe members.
There are several different room types: Outdoor, Treetop, Underwater, and Inside. Inside rooms are the standard room and come in three different sizes:
- Small rooms (5x5 tiles)
- Medium rooms (7x7 tiles)
- Large rooms (10x10 tiles).
Outdoor, Treetop, and Underwater are all large rooms (10x10 tiles).
Outdoor rooms can hold Farm Fresh seeds and other plants, and also have different backgrounds depending on the time of day. Underwater and Treetop rooms can only be purchased after the adoption of an aquatic or flying pet respectively.
- Small Room: 500 KinzCash
- Medium Room: 750 KinzCash
- Large Room: 1,000 KinzCash
- Outdoor: 1,000 KinzCash
- Treetop: 1,000 KinzCash
- Underwater: 1,000 KinzCash
Outdoor rooms depict a grassy garden area set outside. This type of room can be decorated with indoor and outdoor-only items, and be used to grow your own Garden.
The background shows a view of a large valley, surrounded by trees and is against a mountain backdrop; during different seasons, the background and tiles of the room will change accordingly. For example, during fall, some of the trees' leaves in the background will turn red and orange, and the grass tiles will have orange leaves on them. The sky as well corresponds with day and night.
