Spring Winners!

These are the winners for the “Spring” comment contest! Gagagee wanted to give me a choice of the calves as a gift, but I wanted to see what would happen. In the random numbers, I would have won twice anyway, so I kept myself as a winner & submitted for a new random number to get the final winner!

momskinz – Lil Green Spring Calf
zingyginger – Lil Purple Spring Calf
Mimzy – Mystery Bag
KinzGramAtHeart – Lil Yellow Spring Calf

We will go in this order to select prizes; however, you only have 24 hours to respond in a comment on this post with your prize selection or we go to the next person!!!  All winners also need to email me mail2momskinz@aol.com with your selection as the subject of the email to claim your code!

As a reminder, the prizes are eStore 2017 Spring Super Mystery Bag code (donated by AmberRose) or Lil Purple Spring Calf, Lil Green Spring Calf, or Lil Yellow Spring Calf (donated by gagagee). Thank you AmberRose & gagagee!!!

    I started a draft of the post & was going to post the comment counts in order of who commented the most just because sometimes it is interesting to see, but when I got back and started to finish the post, I got lazy & just posted the winners.

    All I’ll say is I talk too much. :mrgreen:

    Wow thanks so much for your generosity, AmberRose & gagagee! Congrats to the other winners!

    Would love the Lil Purple Spring Calf (I thought about the mystery bag for 2 seconds then realized I should let someone else with good luck with mystery bags have it, lol).

    Thanks for hosting, moms!

    All right moms, pictures on the way! Okay, the things in the first five photos are most likely going to be from chocolate eggs, can’t tell which are regular chocolate and which are white chocolate, and sorry, I don’t have any names for these prizes yet:

    http://i65.tinypic.com/svpe29.jpg

    There’s your boy clothes, Boper! And yes, that is the duck plushy that I posted before.

    http://i68.tinypic.com/13yqzpc.jpg

    Matching girl clothes, and the goose/swan plushy

    http://i66.tinypic.com/20qklxe.jpg

    Shrubs and trees…I figure one shrub and tree for each kind of egg.

    http://i64.tinypic.com/vd1x0x.jpg

    Red tulips in same style as last year’s, a couple of floor tiles, and another tree. I can’t be sure these are egg prizes, but they seem likely.

    http://i66.tinypic.com/2rcyet4.jpg

    Pink wildflowers, mixed color wildflowers, and this year’s white chocolate egg individually and in the 6 pack

    http://i63.tinypic.com/p0u9u.jpg

    A jelly bean crown, a bunny cake pop that I suspect will be in this year’s Easter basket, which is also pictured, and a painted egg hot air balloon. Not sure if balloon will be estore or not.

    http://i68.tinypic.com/14xosk1.jpg

    More of the bunny furniture that is in the estore BOGO sale right now, a chocolate egg fountain, and an egg car. Looks to be all estore stuff.

    http://i67.tinypic.com/2u46150.jpg

    Not sure where this stuff will fit in, but it all looks like early spring estore merchandise. The balloon looks like the same color scheme as the Weathered Windmill that was last year’s white egg grand prize, so maybe it is this year’s white egg grand prize.

    I’m looking forward to having a belated St. Patrick’s Day dinner tonight with corned beef brisket, potatoes & cabbage that we made last night. It was a little salty earlier so hoping that adding a few more potatoes while heating it up would balance it out.

    moms, the blog ate my post with the pictures. If you would be so kind as to retrieve it from the spam bin, and give the software and good swift kick in the pants, I would be much obliged! :mrgreen:

    I was just on WKN, and the Sunny Spring Dress is confirmed as mystery, so my guesses for what is in this year’s mystery bags were 100% correct. Man, I am good! :lol: We’ll see if I am as accurate with chocolate egg prizes. :mrgreen:

    So, then, the full list of mystery:

    Bunny Sunglasses
    Daffodil Hat
    Duckling Rain Hat
    Flower Petal Wings
    Ladybug Slippers
    Lilac Bunny Wig
    Pink Bunny Wig
    Pink Skirt and Stockings
    Purple Blossom Hat
    Purple Blossom Sandals
    Purple Skirt and Stockings
    Spring Basket
    Spring Egg Dress
    Spring Flowers Rain Boots
    Spring Flowers Raincoat
    Sunny Spring Dress
    Sunny Spring Headband
    Zany Spring Socks

    Congrats to the winners and the donations rocked! That’s pretty cool that there’s games/contests here too. Is there a rotation to the donations or is it just whoever/whenever?

    Loving all the pictures, especially the blue and purple dress- wowza.

    Busy day today with doctor’s appts for two of my girls (my middle two), then we had a nice lunch at Cracker Barrel with a little country store shopping, of course. Back to work tomorrow though… blech. Hope everyone else had a great day too!

    brinjoel, thanks for the package. I think that my TC 2.0 blue/gold room is done now. We also like stopping by Cracker Barrel when we are on a road trip. They have a great breakfast. On another note, random people on this forum host contests from time to time.

    Afternoon Gymbonians!

    Michelle on Webkinz Picture Guide has started updating the site again, yay! I was using gottaluvjoe’s update page on WI to get the names for things, but gottaluvjoe stopped updating in January so I was at a loss as to how to get the item names. (I don’t need anyone to get the pictures, because I do that first thing on Update Wednesday! :mrgreen: ) So, here are some of the names of the things that I posted the photos for yesterday:

    Photo 1: Michelle hasn’t posted the names yet lol
    Photo 2: Dazzling Hairstyle Bow, Dazzling Dress, Dazzling Sandals, no swan/goose name posted yet
    Photo 3: no photo names yet
    Photo 4: no names yet for first three, but the tree will be in April’s estore ?? box, and the April ?? Box will be the Peaceful Forest theme. WKN posted photos of the walls and floor a few weeks back, but if you want, I will post a photo of all the possible contents of the ?? box. Anyway, the tree is called Peaceful Forest Sacred Tree.
    Photo 5: no names yet
    Photo 6: Happy Spring Crown, no names for the cake pop or gift yet, and the balloon is called Spring Celebration Hot Air Balloon
    Photo 7: Spring Bunny Bed, Spring Bunny Wardrobe, Spring Chocolate Fountain, Spring Egg-Mobile
    Photo 8: Butterfly Gown, Butterfly Fascinator, no names for the others yet

    I’m not sure if tomorrow is Update Wednesday or if the 29th is Update Wednesday. Five Wednesdays in a month always mess up the schedule, lol. I hope it’s tomorrow because I love spoilers! :mrgreen:

    Photos 3, 4, and 5 seem to be the upcoming Spring line at the KinzStyle Outlet. No names for these yet, sorry! Don’t you just love that green soldier uniform thingy? It’s like Sergeant Webkinz’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, lol! And I just really dated myself there. :mrgreen:

    http://i65.tinypic.com/10ru241.jpg

    Photos 9 and 10 are really exciting…not sure if this will be estore or what, but it’s a slushie machine that seems to make seven different foods!

    Argh! moms, once again I posted pictures, and once again the blog ate them. Could you pretty please with sugar on top and sprinkles and a cherry go whisk them out of the spam bin? Thanks!

    There’s got to be a better way to post pictures so that the blog doesn’t eat them, especially if, going forward, I post pictures of all the spoiler items. Anyone have ideas for how to make this work so moms doesn’t have to keep doing clean-up duty after me?

  29. 29 Mimzy said,

    March 21, 2017 @ 3:06 pm

    Thanks again to those who donated prizes. Gagagee I will let you know what was in the bag and if the fountain you were asking about was included. Can I ask some silly questions? How many accounts do you each have, and how many pets? Do you keep building new rooms or just re-do older themes? There seems to be no end to themes and furniture and stuff, all very nice – so hard not to want to make new rooms.

  30. 30 TheLoopyLurker said,

    March 21, 2017 @ 3:44 pm

    Well Mimzy, I have nineteen accounts, the largest having over 300 pets. One account is just Harry Potter rooms. My main account just has my very favorite pets and room themes, and if I get tired of a room theme on that account, I rotate it to a different account so my main account is never too crowded. My main account has less than sixty rooms and only about twenty pets. Please note, I am not representative of the blog, because I have been obsessed with Webkinz for a decade. :mrgreen:

    March 21, 2017 @ 5:54 pm

    I fished out your post, TLL. It was in the pending box so maybe dee was working on it already when I saw your message. Any of the admin can fish it out, not just moms.

    I think the limit was 3 links so that your posts show (or maybe it’s been changed to one link?). Anything above the limit will not show. Anyway, it’s to prevent spammers from posting multiple links to pharmaceutical items and the like.

    I can’t see the pics on my current screen (it’s either my browser or my adblockers are messing with tinypic) so I’ll check it later tonight when I get home. You might want to consider switching to imgur – tinypic sometimes reuses the same links so you end up with another pic than what you intended.

    Hi Dee, I am just short 2 dining chairs from the blue/gold TC2.0 furniture. I have two friends who send me their extra trading card furniture. I store them in a room until I have enough furniture to make up a room. Did you get any rare pets from your trading cards? If so, how many boxes of trading cards do you need to buy on average to win a rare pet?

    Howdy!

    Welcome new folks!!
    Loop, I have Harry Potter folks too!!! tho’ my first/main acct needs some straightening out/rearranging/etc. The gramma accts are much much smaller and easier to manage. Lots of stockpiled kinz unadopted. Real life has limited my play time; I have catching up to do. It all started with one of my granddaughters giving me the Gray Squirrel for Christmas 2008, because I have feeders for squirrels and birds in the backyard. Who knew how much fun webkinz could be??? :-D not to mention all the great people who become dearest friends here at gymbos! ♥

  39. 39 Mimzy said,

    March 21, 2017 @ 8:37 pm

    Wow Loopy that is more than I imagined! And Dee, I play a few accounts too. I only have 3. I inherited my daughter’s old account and she had like 40 pets and many rooms. We were never deluxe, but had some nice rooms. We used to play together until she turned 12, and that was it. Middle school drama and too much homework. Anyway, I found her account last year and since it was active, I now play. I think I like decorating too much as I went through her old stuiff and made a bunch of new rooms; might have over a hundred rooms now. My nieces, 2 of them, come over and I set up accounts w/ pets I found at the dollar store. They like the games and challenges and dressing their pets, but usually send me all their furniture, so …….

    About me: I was a stay at home mom and still kind of am though my daughter is graduating and will be off to college in the fall (happy & sad about this). We moved in with my parents after my 25 year marriage ended in 2015. I am a breast cancer survivor since 2009 and I suffer from depression, but webkinz helps take my mind off things, and now this blog :)

    oh, and i have one big rule in my house – we do NOT count webkinz …

    :lol: that means over a dozen accounts & hundreds of webkinz on them

    all of my room design is mostly on my main account, so tons of rooms – i have two sons (i affectionately refer to them as the warthogs), and i inherited both of their accounts so some rooms on there, but not a ton – my main account is my main for all things … i wish i had the foresight back then to separate my pets by themes on accounts because i would have a signature account and some sort of other way … i also want the ability move rooms so i could have a more logical layout for my ridiculous sprawl, but i have the “eternal wants” so oh well ;-)

    Webkinz began for us when my granddaughter was only five, she came home from a birthday party were they were playing webkinz.
    Diamond was adopted on Nov. 25 2007, and it all began.
    How can a little girl learn to play webkinz? Of course, her grandmother and mom have to learn so they can teach her.
    My daughter and I found Gymbo’s sometime around Feb. 2008, I can’t remember the exact date.
    It was so wonderful to have others to help you learn and trade. Trading was a big thing back then.
    They no longer play, just me.
    I have met such wonderful people here and the love continues and grows.

    Thanks for sharing everytone. Glad to know I am not the only adult who loves to play and decorate. My daughter is my one and only child. She is a blessing but as of late she and I are not communicating so well. Been reading up on this and I guess it is normal. She is starting a new journey. Hopefully it will get better when she goes to college even though I am not ready for an empty nest. I guess that is why I am filling my “nest” with more and more webkinz rooms. I am constantly emptying them and rearranging to make more sense of the layout. We had many medium rooms and they are useless. I feel your pain moms – eternal wants. Well I am off to try to put together her corsage for prom. Will be viewing youtube how to videos and hoping and praying she likes the end result. Wish me luck.

    Bought my young son a lil kinz basset hound at a local fruit store. He loved it. We played together for a while. Even my husband would get excited about buying the POTM every month. Then my baby got older and lost interest. He’s 15 now and on to bigger and better video games. Like gaga I didn’t grow with him lol. Now I play our account. I have 11 others but I don’t keep up on them. They are mostly just used to ship things back to my main account. I just last night reached 300 pets! Exciting benchmark for me. I would have many more, however my husband now frowns on me buying so many. I normally go to the Tuesday Morning store a couple of times a month and look for new ones. I hide them in my car till I can sneak them in. I’m bipolar so often the real world is a bit much for me. I like my simple life of working, sleeping, and playing webkinz. Cute pets make me happy lol

    Good morning! Welcome to all of our new friends! I have played Webkinz since 2009. I do not have children, but I was a Pre-K teacher for years and another teacher got me hooked. I own/have access to 14 accounts, but really only “maintain” one. I log in daily, but rarely have time for much more. My account is such a mess! I have somewhere around 300 unique plush pets. (I just moved 13 totes of them into storage.) I have been trying to construct a list to determine which ones that I have for sure so that I stop buying duplicates. Many of my plush pets have not yet even been adopted! It will get done someday! Right now my husband needs my attention in expanding our business. So that takes a lot of time!
    I love this game! And the way I look at it – I’ll take this addiction over ALL others. RIGHT?!
    Have a great day everyone!

    Hi Dee, my UN is leenie2014kinz.

    My account was started in 2014 and my two kids started their accounts in 2008. We hardly bought anything for the first couple of years and missed all of the older holidays. I have 15 pets on my account and 45 rooms.

    Hello my Friends, I see everyone is sharing a bit about themselves & Webkinz. So here I go! :lol:

    I had a stroke in 2003 and could no longer work, I found myself playing different games on my son’s computer & as my youngest got older she found Webkinz & we started playing together. I opened my main account in 2009. I have 438 pets & too many rooms to count, I have also inherited a few accounts & opened 2 more. So I now have 6 accounts & sometimes keep care of 7 other accounts LOL
    The only other person in my family that still plays is luvallsoulz. She is more of a lurker on here & does not post very often. Mimzy I am also a Breast Cancer Survivor since 1998. :D I have some depression issues that come alone with strokes & Webkinz also helps me with that. I visit Gymbo’s everyday but I don’t always post & due to an illness I was diagnosed with about a year ago, I have good & bad days & I can not allows read all the posts & sometimes my posts might not make much sense LOL. But I still consider Gymbos & Webkinz my home away from home! & I have met the best of Friends here. :D

    I think that may have been one of my longest post! Well off to WW now! :D

    Have a Great Day my Friends! :mrgreen:

    We have a tall kitchen table so have to use counter chairs but we have actual padded chairs and probably not Warthog proof. The cats/Kat both the four and two legged versions have been rough on them.

    I added a visible version of your room to your comment Shorty.

    Hi Mimzy, welcome.

    Started on Webkinz back in February 2007. My older daughter, then 8 and now 18 and also graduating from high school this year, came home after Christmas break talking about these stuffed animals some of the kids got for Christmas. She wanted one. Took me awhile to find any they were sold out after the holidays. Her first was a Unicorn. I also had a two year old daughter now 12. I was apparently playing on her account too much at night to earn her KC so they bought me a Gorilla and a little kinz Chihuahua for Mother’s Day. My younger daughter started her account that October and had to have all of the Halloween furniture which since she was three I had to earn all the KC for. I have 7 accounts of my own and have 7 others I take care of and share. My older girl mostly only plays the occasional game and helps out with the challenges. She was playing Amazing World more the last couple of years but seems to have lost interest in that as well. My younger daughter mostly only wants to adopt pets and decorate rooms. I log in and do the wheels and any daily activities that hour on all the accounts most days I play. I have around 260 webkinz on my main account and a lot of rooms. Other than when I need to adopt a pet I only decorate on the main one. Then the girls two main accounts have 71 and 104. My other accounts have around ten pets and the ones I help with vary. A couple of their friends that also only play everyone once in a while have me grabbing stuff for them. We have a lot of un adopted pets, we tend to adopt when a pet fits a theme or a room we are decorating. I met Gymbo on a different webkinz blog just after the 2007 fall leaf fest when I was looking to trade leaf prizes. She told me she was starting up a blog and I ended up helping her with it.

    I just turned one of my newer accounts the one with all the reindeer over to a friend but he’s a nurse and barely has enough time to play games a couple times a week so he won’t be visiting the blog. I made him and his best friend a pirate room with all the in room games this weekend. His friend’s favorite book as a kid was Peter Pan. So I dressed one of the reindeer as close to Peter as I could manage then another as a pirate. I got an email a few hours later that he deleted one of the beds and help how do you put it back. So I’ve co opted a couple more middle aged men into Webkinz. I am hoping he stays relatively clueless to the store and doesn’t find the estore he really likes stuffed animals and if he starts buying his own pets his pseudo mom who I was friends with first will be ready to wring my neck. :)

    Wow everyone thanks for sharing all this wonderful info about yourselves. I will get around to friendind all of you soon, but so busy with prom stuff, dress altering, corsage making, and getting blamed for anything and everything that goes wrong. Living with my elderly parents who are set in their ways just as my daughter and I are going through this rough patch is difficult. My own mom can’t help but get involved. Still, love and patience is alll I ask for and peace. Playing Webkinz helps. I have begun to think that God made teenagers rebellious and downright difficult to deal with so that it would be eassier for us parents to send them off. However, my doughter and I were always in sync and it just feels weird. That is why I am so overjoyed to have found you all. Those of you have have health issues, are bipolar, have grown kids or no kids, those who have had a health crisis, and those Peter Paners who don’t want to grow up (I am like that too btw) I am so glad to meet you :) I told moms that I an not tech savy so you probably won’t get pics from me and I may ask dumb stuff, but please bare with me. My brain is a bit scattered/foggy maybe menopause, or whatever, but I will try to keep up with you all – though I doubt I will ever be able to adopt that many plushie pets. But I get the addiction, they are so cute and hard to resist!!!! Anyway, thanks again for being so open. I will try to post here as often as I can but if you don’t hear from me, it may be because my stupid computer quit. You see I inherited the desktop my ex hubby built and ever since I updated to Windows 10 anniversary my computer reboots all the time and now Chrome is freezing up on me (My ex refuses to help). SO FRUSTRATING! I will get a new computer soon (saving up), but honestly, change is hard for me becasue of all the changes that have already occured to me physically, environmentally, maritally (is that a word) etc. I hate change, but change is coming for me and the biggest change is that I will have to return to the workforce after a 19 year absence. So scary to think of starting over. I should have gone back to work when I got separated/divorced, but procrastination/avaoidance has been my go to. Soooooo, advice, encouragement and understanding that is what I need – Oh and I need to open the Mystery Bag too – LOL. Will try to get to that tonight and tell you about it. Talk to you soon.

    Going prom dress shopping with OD, her girl friend, the girl friend’s older sister and I wouldn’t be surprised YD insists on coming too this weekend. Both the prom girls are less than enthused about the idea of fancy dress shopping. I figure they will end up in what their sisters tell them to get. Wish us luck. When I finally gave up pestering OD to set a shopping day up and directly texted her girl friend she asked since prom wasn’t for awhile could they wait for Robotics season to be over first. States isn’t until the middle of April. I laughed then texted back we should of gone last month. Don’t have to deal with corsages her girl friend is taking care of those, she likes stuff like that makes and sells bracelets.

    I love hearing everyone’s stories. Here is mine in a nutshell…
    I have 2 girls 15 and 14.. less than a year apart, married 20 yrs and I work full time as an Optometric Assistant. I do not have breast cancer but carry the gene and am the only female in my family who hasn’t been diagnosed with it yet. My aunt, sister and grandmother were diagnosed in their 30s, my other aunt and mom later on. I do rotate between doctors, mris and mammograms every 3 months to screen.
    I got my first Webkinz Christmas Day 2012. It was a pug.. a dog I have always wanted in real life. I have been addicted ever since. I only have about 30 Webkinz on my main account but I do have “feeder” accounts and 2 accounts I inherited from my daughters. I try to log onto my main account daily.
    I log onto this blog daily and it is my main source of information on WW. I would miss out on so many things without these amazing people!!
    Thank you everyone for sharing!!!

    Happy Wednesday! I love getting to read a little bit about all of you. I’m a college student and fall outside of the typical age of most webkinz players. Besides being a full time student, I’m a lifeguard and swim instructor and also a volunteer puppy raiser for an organization that trains service dogs. I’m usually stressed and busy with school and I use webkinz as my little escape from adult responsibilities. I’m not much for the whole college party seen so I usually have so free time when my friends are all going out and that’s usually when I get the chance to play. I have about 7 accounts that I maintain but only two are my main accounts. I absolutely love room designing so its my favorite part of the game. I think that basically sums me up.

    Shorty no need to send any return gifts! I’ve had those chairs sitting in a storage room for months now and had yet to figure out a good use for them. Glad someone else has a use for them!

Now on to my furstrations: So upset that Chrome Flash keeps crashing right when I am playing Jumbleberry, I will never fill up the purple berrys at this rate:(:(:( Also at the academy I keep getting the wrong pet, anyone else? I think this happened after the last WK update and I emailed Ganz but nada. This is terrible when my pets ask to take a class at the academy b/c I don’t get family score points. So happy to hear that a college student has opted out of the party scene. My daughter is a good girl, but I fear peer pressure. Who am I kidding, I fear everything about her being thousands of miles away, but that is life. Well, goodnight all. Off to watch “The 100” anyone else a fan?

    dee shopping for me is fun – i’m waiting one of my favorite unique furniture places is getting a once a year shipment next week – they have these stools i like except the tops are half circles – something about that bugs me – i sent dh a photo & he called it “butt shaped” :lol:

    i told him about these so that he would think i’m so very reasonable with whatever i do spend – all 4 should cost less than one of these:

    Hey everyone! I have a feeling this post will close soon but I really loved reading everyone’s stories, so I guess I’ll share mine.

    I started playing WW when I got a bulldog and a rabbit for my 10th birthday. I played actively throughout middle school but decided I should stop in high school, so I took a 2-3 year hiatus. During my senior year of HS, I found that I had more free time and picked up WW again because it reminded me of when I was young, innocent, etc. Like littlefish, I am now in college (second year) and I still play, but I find it hard to find time to get on every day. I do make sure to play at least on the weekends, and I try my best to keep up with challenges and events.
    I have 2 main accounts, 4 medium sized accounts, and many many more “feeder” accounts that just do the challenges and get log in prizes so that I have extra to share for those who missed. And like TLL, I also have an entire account dedicated to just Harry Potter characters/rooms, which I hope to work on more this summer. My favorite thing about WW is making rooms, but unfortunately those take up a lot of time.
    Even though I don’t post that often, I read the blog almost every day and during the holidays I’m on & posting all the time. Other stuff… I study computer science, I’m training for a marathon, and I like to cook!

    My WWID is Boper911, please add me and let me know on here what your username is, because I only accept FRs from people that I know. Also make sure you have a wishlist because I loovve to fulfill wishes when I can.

    KinzGramatheart: Cancer sucks, I pray everyday for a cure. Ny best friend lost her battle last September and left behind two beautiful daughters, but I have to remind myself that there is a plan and reason for all of this. I will keep your hubby in my prayers.
    Shorty: Glad I am not the only one having trouble w/Jumbleberry. I was thinking my computer issues were to blame, but maybe it is a Ganz thing.
    AmberRose, so glad you may have reconnected with an old school mate. The item from the mystery bag was apond and not a fountain, but it is lovely – thanks again. That was my first mystery bag ever.
    Boper what is TLL? Also, could you or Loopy post a photo of one of your favorite Harry Porrter themed rooms – I will be jealous but will aspire to someday build one of my own. How do I create a wish list? See I told you I would ask dumb questions.
    Lee-Ann so sad that you carry the BC gene, but glad you are on top of things. I hope your daughters did not get it. BC is a crazy thing, they always warn about having had a mom w/ it etc. but in the end it all comes down to it starting with someone, so I guess all women should be cautious. I don’t carry the gene and I was the first in my family.
    I am so happy Spring is here. It always cheers me to hear birdies building nests and raising chicks and it is a reminder of new beginnings.
    Very excited to see the Easter prizes, and challenges. Loopy how do you get all the inside scoop? It is amazing. I included two accounts above you can friend me on, I have not gotten around to adding any of you, but will do soon.

    we are trying to figure out what to do on our anniversary….we are not dress up go out to dinner type folk, nor take in a broadway show………

    but I feel it should be different than another day………does that make sense?
    maybe a picnic lunch at the lake?
    we are just toooooooooooo old I guess
