Patch 4.0.3 | Posted: November 29, 2010
As of January 6, 2019, this pet is no longer available from the Blizzard Pet Store. It was part of the "See You Later Bundle" promotion, and has since been "retired". Blizzard has stated that it might re-appear in the store at an undisclosed date in the future.

This pet is available for digital download exclusively from the Blizzard Store. It may be purchased using any major credit card. Players who purchase this pet will receive a code which may be redeemed on any WoW account. All WoW accounts (of the same region) under one will have access to this pet. Codes may also be purchased as gifts for other players.

As of Patch 4.0.6, the Moonkin Hatchling will fly along side a player mounted on a flying mount.

In 2010, proceeds from Moonkin Hatchling adoptions went to charity. It generated over $800,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Does anyone have any updated information as to this pet being bugged?  I have a level 2 version and am unable to use it to battle at this point.  Thanks in advance for any other information!

As of 5.3, when you buy this pet, you will get the 2 version of this pet, one sent to the first Horde character you login into and one to the first Alliance character you login into.  

If your on a Horde character, you can not summon the Alliance version of this pet, put the Alliance version of this pet into your battle pet party, nor can you go into a pet battle if you have this pet already in your battle pet party. Vice Versa

Having both versions of this pet only counts as 1 unique ingame, but 2 on this site.

Not sure if it is a bug or intentional but my Horde toon has both the Alliance and Horde versions of this pet. They are both counting towards my pet achievments as well. However while my horde toon does have the alliance version I can't summon it.

As of patch 5.0.4 it IS possible for you to have both, I know since I just did this. All my toons were alliance, however I made a horde toon to check the AH, in the mail I recieved this pet and used it. After deleting my horde toon, my alliance toon still has access to this pet. Really made my night! Test it if you don't believe! ^.^

Now, not only does this guy have the best /dance animations, he has the cutest flight animations, as well! Definitely one to keep out while you're showing of your latest flight mount acquisition. :)

Oh little Moonkin Hatchling, all that flapping your tiny wings did has finally paid off! As of patch 4.0.6, you can finally fly! Congrats, little one!

Here's a thought - Of all of us that purchased this pet, how many of us have ONLY Horde toons? If you have a Alliance toon, and they now have this pet, you are now forced to become a multi-character collector.

His little arms are able to flap and make him fly off the ground, even if only for a small bit. Maybe there is hope for his Bigger brothers and sisters yet!

Plus he grows flowers randomly to bring cheer and smiles to your day.

He is the best! I love my little Moony (As is the name i have given mine)

The dance is a /command you can give him. Also, he'll occasionally cast a spell and make nature grow! Taking after his namesake, he's the most eco-friendly pet so far.

The distinct roar of the moonkin is one of the most terrifying sounds in nature.
