Spoilers from 12/13

TheSpoilerLurker dropped off some good spoilers earlier in December, and in all the rush, I wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to see them & oooh & ahhh or throw tomatoes properly. So in TheSpoilerLurker’s own words:

Let’s kick it off with PETS! Top row, we have the Lovestruck Panda Gift Box, the Lovely Bamboo Loveseat, and the Pink Bamboo Salad. Middle row, we have the Ragdoll Cat Gift Box, Designer Vanity, and Ragout a Go Go. Bottom row is the Purple Persian Kitten, Crown Beanbag Bed, and Priceless Pate.

Here’s the Purple Persian Kitten up close and personal:

Next up is MORE PETS! Top row is the Snuggly Teddy Bear Gift Box (this is the second of the Teddy Bear theme pets, obviously! :mrgreen: ), the Teddy Bear Wardrobe, and the Honey BBQ Chips. Bottom row is the Chow Chow Puppy Gift Box, Puppy Wardrobe, and Crunchy Cereal Cup.

Here’s the Snuggly Teddy Bear up close and personal:

And here’s the Chow Chow Puppy up close and personal:

Up next is yet more pets! We don’t have names on any of this stuff yet, but I suspect we’re looking at this year’s Easter pet estore trio. (Easter already?! Can we get through Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Valentine’s Day first? :mrgreen: )

Let’s move on to items, shall we? First up is the February ?? Box theme, Tender Hearts. Top row: Tender Hearts ?? Box, Tender Hearts Wallpaper, Tender Hearts Flooring, Tender Hearts Bed. Bottom row: Tender Hearts Rug, Tender Hearts Window, Tender Hearts Lamp, Tender Hearts Dresser.

More estore stuff. Top row: Country Farm Armoire, Country Farm Chair, Country Farm Coffee Table, Country Farm Curtain. Bottom row: no names on this stuff yet, but it appears to be more Country Farm theme.

More estore. The only thing that has a name here is the Purple Fl0ral Wallpaper, but I suspect the top row is more Country Farm and the bottom row is more Purple Fl0ral.

Moving on to the new Chalet theme. You’ve seen some of this before, but now we have names! Top row: Chalet Armchair, Chalet Chair, Chalet Window, Chalet Ski Rack. Bottom row: Ski Slope, Expert Ski Slope, Ski Lift Sofa, Chalet Column.

More Chalet stuff, and next year’s Deluxe Membership prize. Top row: Chalet Wallpaper, Chalet Flooring, Ski Slopes Wallpaper, and the Half Pipe (the deluxe prize that was designed by someone on WKN). Bottom row: We finally get skis!!!!!1!!1! :mrgreen: Ski Googles, Winterfest Ski Goggles (presumably a Winterfest prize), Skis, and Winterfest Skis (again, most likely a Winterfest prize).

Valentine stuff. You’ve seen some of this before, but now they’re named. Top row: Pink Sweets Tree, Pretty Pink Sweets, Pink Lollipop Fence, and an unnamed bouquet. The tree is February’s candy tree, the sweets are the candy tree’s food, and the fence is the candy tree tie-in item. Bottom row: Be Mine Divider, Valentine Milkshake Machine (NEEEEED!), Pink Marshmallow Milkshake, and Chocolate Strawberry Milkshake. The two foods are the Valentine Milkshake Machine’s foods.

More Valentine stuff. Some is named and some is not, sorry! Top row: Valentine Zangoz Gumball Machine, Sweetheart Gumball (the food for the aforementioned machine), Sweetheart Castle, Cupid Zingoz Statue. Middle row: and unnamed Cinnamon plushy (OMG NEED NEED NEED NEED!), an unnamed Valentine bookshelf, and an unnamed Valentine sofa. Bottom row: unnamed Valentine side table, cubbies, and armchair.

2018’s Valentine chocolates. No names on these yet, sorry!

Random goodness. Do NOT quote me on this, because the items are not yet named, but I have a feeling that the gems will be one of the peek-a-newz rare items, and the wall art will be the other. Looks like we’re getting a gemstone pile or rug each month for 2018, and it looks like they’re recoloring the Upscale Condo theme from the W Shop and we’ll get a piece of that each month for 2018. Anyway, top row is the January 2018 WKN Gift Box, the unnamed gemstone rug thingy, the unnamed recolored Upscale Condo wall art, and the Teddy Bear Trampoline.

More randomness. Top row: Sneaky Snowball Thrower (which I suspect was made to go along with January’s Room with a View theme, Snowmanland), Sheep Pet Lamp, Year of the Dog House (LOL!), and an unnamed bath tub thingy. Bottom row: unnamed fireplace (possibly chalet?), unnamed art supply shelf, unnamed lantern and unnamed winter castle.

Yet more randomness. None of this has names yet, but I’m gonna make some edumacated guesses, lol. My guesses are usually pretty good…I predicted the contents of this year’s crackers exactly! :mrgreen: Anyway, top row is a planter I’m guessing goes with the Purple Fl0ral theme; a Valentine piano that looks like last year’s February Deluxe Challenge harp, so I’m thinking it’s THIS year’s February Deluxe Challenge item; a dresser that has Easter overtones to it (spring mystery bag, maybe?); and a log cabin that I’m guessing goes with the Chalet theme. Bottom row: the next arcade challenge trophy (though I’m darned if I know which game it’s for, because we don’t really have a safari-themed game in the arcade, do we?); an early spring patio door that I’m guessing is estore; and what appears to be a wintergreen berry patio plant and food. To which I say: YAYYYYYYYY! :mrgreen: I’m gonna run out of room in my greenhouse for patio plants soon, lol!

And finally, you guessed it: more randomness! Top row is all unnamed, so we have some random donuts, an egg car, a balcony window (maybe it is spring mystery?), and a St. Patrick’s Day bed. Bottom row: an unnamed snowsuit, Pink Figure Skates (YAY!), and the Aurora Crown.

From Mayor Dr. Quack:
*Wacky Zingoz Extreme has been added to the Arcade for Deluxe Members! This fun variation on Wacky Zingoz could previously only be unlocked with a Feature Code that came with a Wacky plush toy.
(And to think I spent actual money for the game. Grumble grumble grumble!)

*Following right after Christmas, come visit me in the Kinzville Park! We’re having another Meet the Mayor event from December 26th to January 1st! Once again, I will be giving a daily gift box containing a random prize! Stay tuned to Webkinz Newz for more details!
(This is where that plaque and bobblehead I showed you last time will be dispensed!)

Reminder photo:

*Our next Deluxe Day arrives of Friday, December 29th! On that day, Deluxe Members can visit Today’s Activities to get a special prize: a SantaKinz Snowman! Also on Today’s Activities, they’ll find several Deluxe daily activities to enjoy!

*Deluxe Members receive a monthly gift box containing their choice of an item from the NEW Cozy Condo room theme, along with a special piece of clothing that can’t be found anywhere else! January’s Deluxe clothing item is an Aurora Crown!

*Also for Deluxe Members: Your next Deluxe Monthly Challenge begins on January 1st! When you complete all of the tasks, you’ll win a Cozy Condo Loft Bed!
(This goes with the new Deluxe bonus gift theme for 2018.)

*Still thinking about going Deluxe? Next year’s Super-Deluxe item for getting a 1-year subscription is the fan-designed Half Pipe! The perfect place for your pet to play this winter! And as a BONUS, if you sign up for a 1-year Deluxe Membership in January, you’ll also receive a Snowboard Suit!
(AHA! That’s where the mystery snow suit comes in! Too bad I already bought my deluxe for next year at half price on Black Friday, lol!)

*Speaking of winter, our annual Winterfest event runs from January 1st to January 12th! Watch for floating snowflakes and then click them to receive some super snowy prizes!

*Also, look for our 2018 Winterfest Cookies at the Ganz eStore or the WShop starting in January! They come in 3-packs and 6-packs. Each time you feed one of these cool cookies to your pet, you’ll receive a prize! Once again, this year’s random prize pool contains unique items that match our other 2018 Winterfest prizes!

*The Winterfest fun continues with the 2018 Winterfest Challenge! Complete all of the tasks in the challenge and you’ll receive some stunning NEW Chalet Wallpaper and Chalet Flooring for your pet’s room!

*Watch four our next winter Shopping Spree running from January 13th to January 21st! Log in each day to receive some cool winter clothing!

*STILL can’t get enough of winter? Visit the WShop and pick up one of our Winter Party Packs! They’re only available for a limited time!

    Good Morning
    It is snowing now, it wasn’t when we were out earlier at 4:30 am.
    I have to pick up hubby around 10:30 am, hoping it won’t be too hazardous.

    Thanks for all the updates.

    So happy to hear kitty is doing better.

    Morning everyone! :)

    Sorry for being slightly MIA the last few days. Winterfest and real life have been keeping me pretty busy. Plus, I haven’t been sleeping well so I’ve been really tired lately and being on the computer/my phone seems to make it worse.

    TSL, thank you for all the wonderful spoilers! And thank you to Moms for posting this new post with all of them in it! I’m really looking forward to finding out what the eStore Easter trio is this year! I absolutely love the Easter pets! There are some nice Valentine’s items in the spoilers, too, but I doubt I will get any of them. My family doesn’t understand the whole concept of virtual items (or pets) so I’m rarely “allowed” to buy a whole lot of eStore stuff. Usually I have to wait until points are 50% off to get any (which only happens 3 or 4 times a year) and I have to TRY and pace myself/practice some discipline in how I spend them. :lol: By the time another 50% off sale comes around, all the Valentine’s stuff will be long gone.

    gramma, try to stay warm! It’s pretty cold where I am, too, so I feel your pain.

    gagagee, yep, I noticed who designed the new Halfpipe/2018 Super Deluxe Item… Patsie mentioned it on another post and it was one of the things I wanted to comment on but didn’t end up having time, so I’m so glad that you brought it up. Well before the whole “drama” with 22bunny/Matoaca113/4321pinkpony here on the blog, when the Webkinz team was still in the process of choosing a winner for the 2018 Super Deluxe Item contest, I was really hoping that 22bunny’s design WOULDN’T win because I thought it was way too simple for a so called “Super” Deluxe Item.. This might sound harsh, but really 22bunny’s design is basically a giant block of ice with some lines on it (at least that’s how I feel). There were so many beautiful, intricate designs for the Webkinz team to choose from, ones that you could tell whoever submitted them clearly spent a great deal of time coming up with and actually designing them, and all I wanted was for one of those deserving people to win… But of course that didn’t happen and someone who, as we all found out, was trying to deceive us here on the blog, ending up winning a free 1 Year Deluxe Membership in addition to all the things he/she got from the generous people here. It seems to me the Webkinz team of designers were feeling a bit lazy and chose the simplest one out of all of them to which I have to say I am still disappointed about. Of course they took some creative liberties with the design (they added a big banner, light poles, trees, and some snowy edges, all of which were not in the original design), but still… I don’t think the Halfpipe is anywhere near as “super” as past Super Deluxe Items. On a related note (now that I’m done ranting), have any of actually RECEIVED your Halfpipe/2018 Super Deluxe Item upon upgrading your accounts for the year? I upgraded one account to a full year of Deluxe and still have yet to get my Halfpipe or my January 2018 Deluxe Gift Box. I emailed customer service yesterday in the wee hours of the morning, but no one has gotten back to me so far and I’m worried they never will. I’ve been hearing bad things about customer service never responding/having become essentially “unreachable” as of late from people on Webkinz Newz and Facebook and am worried that I am going to be joining in those peoples’ frustrations soon.

    KinzGramAtHeart, stay safe! There have been a lot of weather related accidents in my area recently, and I certainly don’t want one of our own to befall that experience!

    Really quick, I just want to apologize ahead of time for anyone I may offend with my rant and comments about this year’s Super Deluxe Item. I’m sure some of you actually like this year’s item and already have room designs in mind for it, but I just can’t help but feel the way I feel given the others designs that could have been chosen and the the whole thing here with 22bunny. All of you are entitled to your own opinion to which I will respect no matter what (even if you think what I said was totally wrong or out of line).

    Anyway… I hope all of you are doing well and having a good year so far. To those of you who aren’t doing so well/aren’t having such a good year already, I sincerely hope things get better. All of you are in my thoughts. <3

    That's all for now. I've stressed myself out with my own rant and need to go do something productive so I can eventually get to sleep one of these days.

    XO,
    Otterkinz

    Good Morning all!
    dh and I have slowly recovered from all the family visits. :) SIL and I had taken the kids to a Dave and Busters type place…glow in the dark mini golf, arcade, laser tag. My legs have been so sore the last couple of days and It just dawned on me it was from all the laser tag. :lol: Yesterday I spend doing bills and all the things I’ve neglected the last few weeks.

    gaga and mist—Thank you!!! Although, thank you does not even cover it anymore! Your generous gifts are so appreciated and just made my day!!! Wow!

    catmom—glad you are feeling better. I get sinus infections too, I know exactly what you went though.
    gramma/dee—yay! glad you and skitty kitty have your staples out and are on the mend.
    Otterkinz—please don’t stress yourself out about things you want to talk about here. <3 I think Ganz may have chosen the half pipe due to the upcoming winter Olympics. I hope you are able to get some sleep.
    KGH—hope it stops snowing before you have to pick up hubby…safe travels!

    Hope everyone stays safe and warm today <3

    I got the virtual pet of the month thing and for some reason it didn’t get automated to send me the codes in the email or add them to my estore account so I have had to ask customer service for it each month they have gotten it to me pretty quickly once I asked. Often within a day. Had a little trouble getting the month of deluxe out of them but that was because they seemed to think I didn’t understand how it worked and thought I would get it each month, once that was cleared up they sent it to me. I suspect it depends on when you ask and how busy they are. I figure they are dealing with less staff like everything else.

    Man, busy day at work today and apparently busy here as well.

    Otterkinz, I sympathize with the lack of sleep. There was a 4.4 earthquake centered over Berkeley today at around 2:40am that woke us up from sleep. We’re fine but we stayed awake for a bit wondering if that was the prequake and should we start getting ready to go elsewhere (not sure exactly where tho). I went through the day in a fog with the help of espresso and caffeinated soda. Very happy it wasn’t the big one yet. Oh yeah, don’t worry much about what to talk about here. As long as it’s PG13, we pretty much talk about everything.

    Looks like gramma may have gotten her suit. Alas I also have gotten my deluxe half off earlier so it didn’t come with the outfit, else I’d happily hand it over.

    April, it’s been a couple of years since we’ve visited a Dave and Busters but I don’t remember ours having a mini-golf or laser tag. Must have been fun to have you walking that much to get your leg sore afterwards.

    Sorry to hear the virtual POTM pets are a pain to get, tmt. Are you on FB? I think if you bring it up with someone like Sally Ganz, they might fix how you get the pet so you won’t have to contact them each month but they might need your account info to do it.

    Like Lem, I have to wait much later this year to get the deluxe yearly gift as mine doesn’t renew until after Webkinz day. I’m also thinking they might have picked the half pipe because of the upcoming Winter Olympics. I don’t snowboard but the way the artists at Ganz designed the final product, looks fun – whee!

    Huge hugs to gaga and mist for the presents! Mist, you’re not retiring from WW, are you? I never thought I’d see any of these.Thanks so much to you both!

    Loopy, I’m glad you like ’em. I had the hardest time thinking of what to send to all the wonderful Santas here on the blog (and there are so many) so I have sent packages out hoping that if it’s not exactly on your lists, at least they might be useful in the trading room.

    Rubycubes, thank you for hosting such a fun contest. No rush on the code, moms. So much stuff going on with the flakes, peeks, etc. Sorry to everyone else as I was trying to sit out this one out having won earlier but it didn’t seem like anyone was posting about it and had some time to look for it yesterday morning. Also, rubycubes, forgot to ask – I thought I had sent the Dazzling Hairstyle Bow on your list along with a couple of Helping Paws items. Did it arrive? I’ve been sleep-deprived more often than not lately so I may have forgotten to hit send and will hunt it down if I didn’t.

    Sounds like it’s pretty cold right now for a bunch of folks. Hope y’all have reliable sources of heat and are staying inside as much as possible. Safe travels to your dd, dee. I gotta ask, what’s ‘sked?’ I googled it and the urban dictionary says ‘schedule’ but I think you meant something else.

    Anyway, I was aiming the floating flakes before going to bed, but I might just bag it for tonight, it’s been a long day. I’m glad there’s variety of floaty prizes but I’m hoping that they’ll release a community code for the 2018 cookie prize before long. Dreaming, I know but a girl can hope. :) If, by the end of winterfest a community code doesn’t materialize then I will get the cookies as this year’s prizes look great in a lot of rooms.

    P.S. did you guys notice the winterfest window shows a different scene depending on where it’s in the room? A friend posted this on Facebook showing all the different possible views. Awesome, right?

    Thanks for posting the pics, I really like the new deluxe prize after seeing your post.

    Who is buying Winterfest Cookies?
    In the past they have been available in daily activities, on the wheels to win.
    This year the only way is the e-store.

    Has anyone else noticed that you don’t get credit for the bath and sink since Ganz updated them?

    I wasn’t paying enough attention and accidentally bought the 2017 6-pack of cookies. I did not realize that there were old cookie packs at the w-shop.

    Good morning all! :)

    Today has been a very productive day so far. I was up all night making thank you cards from SCRATCH for people who sent me birthday and Christmas cards this year. Then, I called the Ganz eStore Customer Service line to get some missing Deluxe items awarded to my dock. I HATE talking on the phone, so it was a struggle to even physically call the number, but I did it and I am glad I did. The guy I talked to was very pleasant and it took all but a few minutes for him to straighten everything out on my accounts. Meanwhile webkinzsupport@ganz.com still has yet to respond to my now resolved issues/emails… I think whoever checks the emails and sends back those canned responses must have taken a nice, long vacation for the winter. Or perhaps that “person” is actually a bear and they are hibernating. :lol:

    april and zingyginger, I’m not super into sports and don’t follow the Winter Olympics, so that’s probably why I didn’t have the same logic as you guys as to why the Webkinz team chose the Halfpipe to be this year’s 2018 Super Deluxe Item. I’m still not crazy about the Halfpipe, though…

    april, I stress myself out about everything! Every day! I literally don’t know how to NOT stress. I’ll try not to stress myself out too much here, though. This is a fun place! :) And thanks for your well wishes in regards to me getting some sleep. I actually DID sleep last night (it’s a miracle!) probably because of your comment. ;)

    zingyginger, I’m so sorry you and your family got woken up by that nasty earthquake, and that because of it, you were in a fog all day! I’m sure that was no fun! And wow, I can’t imagine how scary it must have been when you realized there was a chance that the earthquake that woke you up could have just been a “prequake” and that an even bigger, more violent one could have been in store. I’m glad that wasn’t the case! You and your family will be in my thoughts these next couple of days. Hopefully all will be quiet and still now. Thank you for posting those two photos, by the way. It’s cool being able to see the Halfpipe in action and seeing the full “picture” those Chalet Windows create when placed all around the walls!

    Alright folks! I desperately need to get in a little sleep before getting into anything else today. I nearly lost my post a second ago and almost had a meltown, so it’s definitely bed time!!

    Nighty night! :lol:

    XO,
    Otterkinz

    Only 6 degrees here but that is an improvement a few days ago they said it would be negative 2 today that doesn’t include the wind chill. Supposed to warm up by Monday which is good cause class start for Older.

    A lot of snow on the coast hope your daughter’s school is able to keep the sidewalks clear for the students Dee. It varied where I went and we have some cousins who attended University in the Upper Peninsula they make tunnels in the snow for the students to walk through warmer that way.

    Glad to hear the roads aren’t too bad Gramma.

    Happy New Year CWC.

    Yay you were able to sleep Otterkinz, not being able to rest no matter how tired you are stinks. Makes it hard to get anything done. The email person may be on vacation it is that time of year. I haven’t asked yet was waiting until next week after your comments figured they were busy. It does read like they are replying from the kinz chat with a list to click on what they can say.

    Hubby has a facebook Zingy but I don’t use it for stuff like that. I have been emailing on the same thread since I first asked so the support person has to be aware it is an on going issue. I was assuming if they could fix it they would have so they didn’t have to keep sending it manually when I ask. I did comment on that at one point. I purchased a stuffed animal on the same order thought maybe that might of glitched it.

    Haven’t bought any cookies yet. Planning to do so. Sorry you clicked on the wrong year Shorty.

    Hi everyone. While it is cold everywhere else we are having “seasonably warm” weather. We are known as a winter city but some of the many festivals are struggling with melting.. especially the ice castles. I would just like it to remain consistent.
    Sounds like so many of us are busy IRL. I’m glad people still take the time to post. I love reading about what everyone is up to. Off to catch some snowflakes.. loving those cute little bunnies.

    Good Saturday morning
    Thank you to all the well wishers. I know your thoughts and prayers helped me get better so much faster this year.
    I actually slept through the night without tylenol last night. Only two coughing episodes and one small fever. Today no blood in my sinuses. Yay! Happy dance in my bed. I have started doing laps and stairs in my house to build back the muscles I lost being in bed since December 23. I even went out on Wed to the bank. We got a little excited to be out and I ended up back in bed for Thursday and Friday.
    We have been having a warm spell now for about 5 days, temps. in the high 50’s even a 60 F. Today we have some wind and small rain.
    My beautiful DD loaned me her laptop and I played for awhile. I have received 3 chairs, 3 ski hills , 3 bunnies, one pink ice skates, 2 goggles.
    I love the PAN prizes and have used them in many different rooms.
    I am sending Peace, Love and Joy to everyone. You are an amazing group of fabulous individuals creating beautiful fun together.
    Thank you!!!!!

    Dee-NEW Blueberry Chex is perfect for making Mixed Berry Chex Party Mix, ready in less than 15 minutes! With a bright and fruity taste, this is the sweet summer combination you’ll love.

    Ingredients
    4 cups Blueberry Chex™ cereal
    3/4 cup sliced almonds, roasted
    3/4 cup freeze dried strawberries
    3/4 cup freeze dried raspberries
    1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup butter

    Steps
    In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the Blueberry Chex and almonds(pretzels & whatever else sounds good to you ).
    In a small, microwave-safe bowl, combine the orange juice concentrate, butter, and brown sugar, microwave on high for 1 minute or until the mixture has melted. Stir to mix and pour over the cereal mixture. Stir until evenly coated.
    Place in microwave and microwave for 5-6 minutes or until just starting to brown, stirring after every minute. Spread mixture on a parchment-lined sheet pan and allow to cool completely. Break-up party mix and store in an airtight container.

    Sitting here at the Apple store trying again for a 2nd time to get a sticky return button on my keyboard fixed.

    Catmom, happy to hear you’re starting to feel better. And it’s great dd loaned her laptop so at least you can play when in bed.

    Blueberry Chex sounds yummy. But so does rice krispies. Which one will you make, dee? I don’t need an invite but do you do airdrops?

    Cashews are hard to keep around here – they seem to disappear super fast!
