Free Webkinz Guide - Curio Shop and Gem Mine Tips


Curio Shop Tips and Tricks

Arte, the owner of the Curio Shop, is slow to warm up to strangers. After the first time you visit, there are six levels of friendship, as indicated by Arte's greetings:

1. "Welcome to the Curio Shop. Hope you find what your looking for."

2. "Welcome back. See if you can find a bargain today."

3. "Hey, welcome back, if you see something you like, let me know."

4. "Good to see you again. Have fun shopping."

5. "Ahh, one of my favorite customers. Let's see what I can do for you."

6. "There you are! Always great to see you, my shop is your shop."

At the fifth level, Arte starts to drop hints about what general time frame you should look for a Rare Item. When you get to the sixth level, Arte will hold up a sign telling you exactly what hour of the day the Rare Item will be available at the Curio Shop.

So how do you progress through the levels? Arte, like most people in the service industry, loves to get tips, but don't insult him with too small an amount, or by tipping him more than once a day! He also appreciates your business, so try to check the Curio Shop to see if it's selling anything you want before hitting the W Shop. Who knows, Arte might even be selling it cheaper than the conventional store is!!!

The first levels are the easiest to progress through, but if you make sure to tip Arte 100 Kinzcash daily, and buy at least one small item every visit, you'll have the insider's scoop on the Rare Items in no time!

Gem Mining Guide

The Curio Shop is also your entrance to the mines, where you can hunt once a day for precious gems, either to collect them in the hopes of exchanging one of each for the coveted Webkinz Crown of Wonder, or to sell them to Arte. Gems are arranged by colors and levels of rarity. The more rare the gem, the more Arte will offer you for it, but the harder it will be to find again. Arte also has a "Gem of the Day," for which, if you find it that day, he will significantly increase his offer.

To keep you from wandering aimlessly through the mines in search of treasure, I've compiled a list of where each gem can be found, to increase your likelihood of finding what you want. Remember, you have three tries to find a gem, and you can only mine once per day, so use your chances wisely!

Tim on July 12, 2010:

There used to be lists of Curio Shop Future Information that showed rares and great deals as days in advance. The Curio Shop lists have begun in April 2007 and ended in February 2008. I think the retirement of the rare and deals lists were due to making Level 7 too irrelevant.
