Are your children having trouble figuring out recipes on Webkinz World? These unique toys that allow children and young teens to create an online pet can be much more complicated than you’d expect. Despite tutorials on the main Webkinz site, and despite numerous websites devoted to these adorable pets, it can be difficult to figure out exactly what to do! This is especially true for the younger children like mine and for recipes in particular. After I helped them get past creating ‘gunk’ (the stuff that is produced from failed recipes), I thought it would be great to share some helpful pointers.
How do you find the recipes- On Webkinz world there are recipes so you can let your pet try something new. You have to have 3 specific different foods and put them either in the oven, in the sandwich maker, the blender, or on the barbeque. But how do you find these recipes? There are 2 different ways. One of the ways is to watch TV by turning on your Webkinz television and selecting the cooking channel. Chef Gazpacho tells you many great and interesting recipes and they are always different. This is a great way to learn exactly what works! If you do not own a TV you need not rush to buy one for your pet. A simple alternative is to visit the W-Shop and just buy a recipe book, although in my experience many of these recipes are not as interesting.
The different cooking appliances– For cooking there are four different appliances. There is a stove, a sandwich maker, a BBQ, and a blender. While it’s great to have all these different appliances to make your pet some great food, you must be careful! If you put the wrong ingredients into an appliance you will end up with ‘gunk’. We will cover ‘gunk’ a bit more in a moment, but for now just know that your pet will not eat it. For example; if you were making a sandwich on the oven then you will get gunk, but if you make a sandwich in the sandwich maker, you will succeed and have a delicious sandwich for your Webkinz pet to enjoy. The oven is used to make things such as spaghetti and pies. The sandwich maker is obviously to make sandwiches, the blender is to make things such as smoothies and milkshakes, and the BBQ is for making things like hamburgers. To find more recipes for the BBQ or blender, remember you can buy a cook book, it will contain many delicious recipes for your Webkinz.
The gunk problem– If you decide to experiment with recipes and they don’t turn out right they will turn into gunk. You will also create gunk if you try a recipe on the wrong appliance or even just use the incorrect ingredient. However, even though your Webkinz does not like gunk, you can sell it at the W-shop. There are many different colors of gunk, but it’s all worth about the same amount of Kinzcash.
