One thing I would LOVE to see in Webkinz World is a new My Page, but with more features and individualization and not restricted to just your friends. Basically a profile for your account when you’re in the clubhouse or park… you could walk around and see other pets, and when you click on pets it brings up a profile that you’ve created. I would like to be able to showcase room designs and I really really want a feature where you can list what items you have for trade and what items are on your wishlist. It would make trading a lot easier for me! My Page used to have a have/wants list but it’s since been removed and the interface wasn’t great.
Thanks for the contest Kelly!
Also- if you listen to the new podkinz, they are allowing deluxe preview members to get the deluxe day item as well!
I like the idea of monthly challenges for non-deluxe members. My biggest want for WW is probably a better way of trading. Ganz has recently made trading more difficult. As Boper said, we need to be able to have a place where we can list what we have available for trade and a list of what we want. It would also be helpful if we could communicate easier with people in the trading room. But a complete list of items would be ideal.
grandma, i used 4 ozs applesauce to replace two eggs………be careful what you use the applesauce replacement for! if you google, egg replacers…………i got mine off the peta site. we also have the box of egg replacer which is made of tapioca and dd sometimes uses flax seed……..all depends on what she is making
Dee – I have egg replacer and I’ve heard of using applesauce, just hadn’t tried it. Also never thought of using brown sugar. I believe you said your recipe was Betty Crocker. I’ve always used one from Better Homes & Gardens. I’ve tried a couple of vegan recipes that I found online but looking forward to trying the recipe that I’ve used all of my adult life, just switching out the eggs. Does your recipe call for shortening?
Dee – the oven beeped while I was typing. It turned out good! Doesn’t taste the same, maybe because of brown sugar, or applesauce, or a combination of the two things. But it’s way better than the vegan recipes that I’ve tried. Thank you so much for sharing! I put carob chips in one loaf but haven’t sampled it yet.
I would like if it were easier to find things in my dock. There was some additions but it still takes forever to find things.
How is everyone doing? It is nice to have somewhere to come and chat. I am not suppose to leave my house except for doctors and food. But I won’t be going food shopping again after today. I spent almost an hour in the checkout line. It was a special hour of shopping for seniors and I think every senior in the township was there. LOL
I am thinking of making chicken soup today. There were no frozen veggies at the store I went to this morning, but my neighbor found some for me at another store. It is great to have such caring neighbors.
Kelly… thanks for your generous contest for the blog… I would really like to see some new Helping Paws prizes… nothing new since it began ! Local grocery store shelves remain bare… Looking for a loaf of bread..none.. no beef..was able to get some chicken… Wanted to get some steaks … we are getting together tomorrow for small family get together…wanted to do some grilling….Himself is almost phobic with the restrictions imposed by our governor but will be coming as well as my sister..brother and niece…Our thoughts will be with my mom who as you all know no longer lives in her home.. KinzGram.. local grocery stores also offering early shopping for seniors… Hope you all remain healthy and safe !
grandma – glad it turned out…………i have learned i do better with my “old” recipes and just subbing out stuff………..mine wanted margarine. we keep the vegan butter when dd is around, but i just used country crock (which is vegan) the jif brand peanut butter cookies are good veganized too! I swap the milk for unsweetened almond milk and use the egg replacer
This is such a generous contest Kelly! Thank you! I for one am super excited about the prompt haha! I have been emailing Ganz with suggestions for years now
One thing I wish to see in Webkinz (I’m not sure if this was how it used to be in the past though) is the ability to change your pet’s outfit when in the clubhouse or park. It would make pet requests to wear something different and just overall fashion changes much more convenient than having to exit to the arcade or house and then re-enter clubhouse, which takes FOREVER to load on my slow computer.
Another wish I have is to be able to Upgrade the size of rooms already bought. When I first started playing Webkinz, I didn’t have much kinzcash so I always bought the cheapest size rooms which are also the smallest. Now that I’ve been playing for longer and have saved up since then, I’ve found that I have so many small rooms that are not big enough to use for my room design ideas and they are just taking up space in my house. I would pay a lot of kinzcash to be able to purchase some sort of “size upgrade” to make some small rooms bigger!
I also wish that Webkinz brought back the past feature where you could invite pet’s to see your rooms. That sounded like so much fun and a cool way to view everyone’s room designs that they are working on!
Additionally, Moms gets credit for this idea..but I would absolutely LOVE a search function for rooms and just my dock overall. If there was a way we could type in an item name and have only those items pop up in a section of the dock, that would save me so much time (and finger cramping from clicking so much) when it comes to endless scrolling to find an item buried at the back end of my dock
I definitely have many more ideas but I don’t want to fill up the whole blog with my Webkinz wish list for features to be added lol!
Have a great day everyone! Hopefully Ganz might implement some of these ideas in the near future! I know from the Ask Fiona pages, that they are working on somewhat of a search feature for docks (idk if would work for rooms) Fingers crossed! That would make me soo happy
Kelly—Thank you for this fun contest!!! So generous of you! Although I do not wish to be considered I too would love to see a search function for rooms and docks. It takes forever to find anything. My hand and arm actually get sore from clicking through my dock sometimes. Moms and muffin said it perfectly!
moms—”i also want to be able to submit multiple wish tokens to the wish factory & multiple berries to the jumbleberry jars at a time.” YES!!!
Everyone has such awesome ideas!
I would like a function to help with passing the agility class. Maybe after 10 or 15 fails you can click and have a ‘tutor’ help. Or when you get to recess there is a prize coupon on the wheel or dig up in the sandbox to pass a days class or level.
gaga—I’m so sorry this has been so difficult on you, your family and your mom. I hope she’ll understand this is all to keep her safe. I’m glad Stella’s picture brightened your day a little. I’m so glad your family is able to get together for a dinner this weekend. Time with himself is always good.
sheba—Thinking and praying for your dd that is in Spain right now. Prayers for you too, I’m sure it’s difficult not having her home.
moms—Sending email to you. So thankful you and everyone put so much hard work into making this place possible and keeping it a safe and happy place for all of us!!! ♥
I would love to see an easier way to earn zummies in zumwhere when you care for your zums. I would also love to see tutoring in the academy come back! I remember you could pay extra to help your pets pass a class and buy would that be really helpful to me. I have been trying to pass the strength level 9 classes foreeeeeever.
I would like to a better way to communicate in the regular trading room. It would be nice to have each category of things to say updated to reflect how webkinz is nowadays. This has been said- but make it a feature again to be able to visit other’s rooms! Now that the estore is around and there are so many cool new types of items, I would love to be able to see my friend’s houses!!! Also, what an awesome contest!!! Thanks for the opportunity.
does anyone look at earthcam? we had one bookmarked for boston hoping to have a dd sighting i was looking at some earlier for chicago and NYC i do not know anything about what they usually look like, so not sure if all of this has changed folks……
Went with banana oat muffins instead of banana bread, but then I couldn’t find our other muffin tin so I ended up with 12 muffins and one banana oat loaf. Did anyone here get the new Animal Crossing game?
The university finally announced that they’re postponing graduation until August. Hopefully this nonsense will be cleared up by then. I’m glad they decided to postpone instead of cancel because that’s what a lot of other schools are doing.
Kelly – Thank you for the opportunity to win any of the prizes in this little contest.
I think a lot of us can agree that Moms’ search feature for dock and house would be the most useful update since the ability to move rooms. Better organization of the dock would be super helpful too. But what if there were little preview buttons for rooms so you could take a quick glance instead of loading the room only to find out it wasn’t the one you wanted?
Kelly – What seeds are you looking for, apple trees? I don’t remember getting other seeds from fall fest. If apple trees are what you need, I have some of them. Also, I have extra of that green coin box if you still need it. I think that’s the one you are asking about. Getting ready to log in so I’ll check.
Dee – thanks for the tip about the peanut butter cookies. I copied and pasted that into a document. Haven’t had good peanut butter cookies for a few years so that’s a must try. I’m having banana bread with carob chips as I’m reading here, yummy!
Kelly – I see that the hot peppers and snow peas were from fall fest. I’ll send those with the lucky coin box. Let me know what seeds you are looking for and I’ll see if I have them. If these are the right ones, let me know how many you want.
Howdy, (((waves hi to everyone)))))) Just stopped in to say ‘Hi’ &I hope all are doing well. I still want the ability to move doors in rooms. To type an items’ name to find it. I want them to fix it so I can vist another player again… I would love to have special outside weather rooms. So you could by a regular outside room or an outside weather room that would have extra features; where it might be foggy,rainy, windy, or snowing depending on the seasons. By the way thank you so much for the generous contest! I don’t want to be a contestant not because the prizes arent awesome but because I’m not able to be on as a regular anymore and ya know… . I may have some time coming up with the whole virus thing we are partially shutting down at work & may close up for awhile soon.
Oooooo and Flower pun pets. Like a merge of the pets and the plant name The Tigerlily Tiger The Dogwood Dog The Snapdragon Dragon The Butterfly Palm Butterfly The Cockscomb Rooster ETC……. They already did a Dandylion Lion soooo okay now I’m gonna go ♥
Kelly, how generous of you to donate prizes for a contest!!! I’m loving reading everyone’s ideas for what they want to see in Webkinz World in the future! I especially love Boper’s idea for a new My Page!! I miss knowing how many pets I have without having to go through and manually count them! My wish for Webkinz World is to be able to get rid of the doors in our rooms! Or at least 3 of them!! And the remaining one, we should be able to chose where we want it to go, either somewhere on the wallpaper or along one of the “invisible walls” in our rooms so that we can make it disappear when in edit mode.
moms, I saw on the other post that you’ve been forgetting to go to the Spring Melt room in the Clubhouse… Well, I’m taking care of a friend’s account right now because she does not have Internet at home. She goes to our local library to do her Webkinz and since I know she doesn’t have access, I’ve been doing all of the wheels and special events for her. Yesterday or the day before, I took two of my accounts to the Kinzville Park and Clubhouse to claim the special event prizes and then completely forgot to take my third account to the Park, but remembered to take my friend’s account for both! Go figure!! I’d better go take care of all of that while I’m thinking about it, LOL!
Hoping all are well and staying safe! I think I saw on the other post that someone’s relatives got sick from indirect exposure and are now in self quarantine?? How awful…
Just a reminder for NA accounts: It’s not too late to claim your Deluxe Day prize if you haven’t already!
Good Morning All ! I love all of the suggestions on improving WW ! Would like to see some new trash collecting prizes in the Park… new ice cream from Mr. Moo…No real incentive to collect trash anymore.. April… Somehow I was able to pass the agility test… however I have been trying for years to pass the strength class and the running class ! I get really frustrated and don’t go to “class” for weeks.. I would just like one diploma for my pets !! Hey to the new people who are posting ! dee… hope you are enjoying your dd’s visit ! I am cooking today for a couple of my siblings and himself and niece….Couldn’t find any beef over the past week….so decided on spaghetti ! Will grill some chicken for them to take home…Traveled yesterday to pick up our favorite cake… ( surprise) Hope to have a much needed visit with everyone…. My mom had a chest x ray on Friday night d/t weeks of coughing and now developed shortness of breath on exertion… Asked NP weeks ago for one and he said it was not necessary.. Well……………………Now on 2 different antibiotics… and ordered aerosol tx s.. which they are unable to get equipment till Monday ! Since I have been unable to see my mom for almost two weeks have been unable to asses her myself….So frustrating… feel so badly for all those in facilities that do not allow visits !
I would love to see some sort of special event in which promo pets could be purchased! Many players, including myself, do not wish to spend $100 on estore points each time we like a promo pet, so I hope that on webkinz day, black Friday, or an odd holiday, promo pets, such as the white chocolate bunny and baby weasel, will be made available for a day or two. New Zumwhere prizes and new Magical Forest charms would also be really cool! It would also be very convenient to have an easy way to see how many pets you have, such as the new my page idea mentioned by Boper911. I would also love some new challanges that reward items such as the Zodiac costumes or furniture from webkinz newz themes–specifically furniture that is no longer available other than through trading. For those of us who watch our daily ads in the clubhouse and forget to sell our kinzcash coins every day, it would be very useful to be able to select all of them at once and deposit them in the sell section. This could be useful for any item. Thank you so much for organizing this giveaway–what a fun way to connect with other players through ideas!
Dee – I tried to post to you last night but guess I said something it didn’t like. My banana bread turned out great, loved it with carob chips. I copied the peanut butter cookie info that you posted and I’ll be trying those. Haven’t had a good peanut butter cookie for a few years so your way sounds great. I’ve been searching for vegan recipes but I think this will work out better. Thanks again for sharing.
gurl – now you have to make it! do you have cocoa powder?
are you vegan or do you just cook it? I am a baker and since she switched over, i am always looking for things to make for her cuz well, I am a mom! i know choco does vegan too…………I have never had tofu, but i do want to try….can not remember………either seitan or tempeh……..i get them confused and vegan chili is a no brainer……..nashville has this restaurant called southern vee, that sells nashville hot “chicken” that dh adores……..i went on one trip and just got sides……….they make a potato salad out of chickpeas that is really good.
Kelly – I can send a pack of peach seeds and I know I have some cucumber seeds. I’ve never seen cantaloupe so I’m guessing that is estore. Is there anything else you are looking for other than seeds?
Dee – Most of what I eat is vegan. Can’t say I’m vegan until it’s 100%. I still use some meat substitutes similar to Gardein products. Some of them are vegan and some contain dairy. I don’t have cocoa powder but I do have carob powder. Doesn’t taste the same but some carob things are very good so I might try it with that.
Dee – you need to try tofu! Not sure how your dd likes to make it, but I bread it and put it in the air fryer. I eat vegetarian, I’ll probably work on being vegan at some point, but now isn’t the time for me. I want them to bring the hamsters back. I loves the daily stuff with them. There was the mountain one and then one where you look for keys or something?
I would be super excited to see new seeds introduced to the game as I currently am building a small collection of hard-to-find seeds for my garden. Since the last time I played over the summer of my sophomore year in high school, there have been so many new arrivals for outdoor plants and decor. I have many apple trees from the hours I spent on Webkinz catching up – and getting even more addicted to it! I also love food and drink dispensers. The most recent water dispenser wasn’t ingenious, but I personally thought it to be quite refreshing…I miss the simplicity of the old Webkinz set-up, yet at the same time am excited for the more recent millennial changes being made to keep the platform more relevant and modern.
I really ranted (I apologize for that), I haven’t been on a Webkinz forum/community in so long! I’m just so reinvigorated for the future of Webkinz, especially since they seem to be motivated in keeping the game up and running, unlike their more recent shutdown of Amazing World (which left a minor tear in my little sister’s heart – She was young and loved her free bunny). Thanks for having a place where I can just talk and read the comments from other Webkinz Fans : )
Thanks for posting the first Spring Melt Community Challenge task, KinzGram!
Dex Dangerous Challenge starts today also! Not looking forward to playing Dex on my 3 accounts and then again on my friend’s account…
gaga, I’m so sorry to read about your mom’s current condition! It’s hard enough not being able to access loved ones in facilities not allowing visitors, but the fact that your mom is also experiencing concerning symptoms makes it all the worse… You are both in my thoughts right now!
Good Morning All ! Otterkinz… Nice to see you… Thanks for the kind wishes…Situation is so challenging … but trying to stay remotely connected ( by phone) with my mom.. Governor issued Order to Say at Home effective tonight but seems like most people are doing the best they can….Finished Dex Dangerous on one account this morning and it goes really fast…so don’t be discouraged… KinzGram.. thanks for the heads up on the blue bow ! Looks like those glasses may be new ! Boper… if you are around… where in the heck did that white light post come from that is on your wishlist ?? Have been scouring all of my docks in search of one for you … Bepsy… if you are around… any ideas about the items in the new mystery bag being released on Wednesday ? Searched Webkinz Page but did not have any luck… I used to love moolah mountain too moms ! I think I had quite a bit of money left in Mazin Hamster store… as they say… hindsight is always 20/20.. Would have tried for a few more trophies ! Hope you all are well !
I’m going to post, not attempting to enter twice, just wanna talk: thanks…
Wow, first thing today – I am buying a blue bow and any other bow they have…I love cute head peices… my sis is constantly asking to do my hair irl, so : )
Anyways, I just want to say that I love the idea of a search bar or some other form of organizing our inventory on webkinz. I am still acquiring new items, but eventually I can see how it would get difficult to navigate.
Also, Question for anyone who’s reading this: Does Webkinz ever try to limit your inventory and the amount of items allowed in it, because I thought a friend said something about that a few years back…?
gaga—I’m so sorry to hear your mom isn’t feeling well. I can’t imagine how frustrating it is to not be able to see her and assess the situation for yourself. I’m glad you are able to communicate with her by phone at least. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom. We are still under the 10 peeps or less order, but everyone here seems to be sheltering in place anyway. Aside from that first wave of TP hoarding panic, everyone here has been kind and considerate and stores are working hard to keep things in stock. Very happy to read you told to stay at your clinic and be safe. I have a friend from Stella’s puppy class that is a doc and moved back to Hawaii to help his parents last fall. He said the medical situation there is ‘poo’ show, he’s working 14-16 hour days in an Urgent Care Clinic. I haven’t even bothered with Strength in a while, that seems even more hard that the agility! I would love just one diploma too.
moms—Oooh, didn’t realize the Dex Dangerous Challenge was a new prize! Thanks! I miss the hamster stuff too!!
Thanks cakis!! I thought there was a ‘tutor’ button when I first started playing, but couldn’t remember what happened to it. Would love to have that back!
Gotta run, we are heading out for our daily ride in the truck around the neighborhood! LOL It was a daily walk, then it SNOWED last night!! Just a quarter inch, but ugh. Both of us leaving for a bit every day will help Stella not develop separation anxiety when dh finally goes back to work.
