    Steve – thank you sooooooo much for that garden harvesting update this year! Of all the updates, I think that one has been my absolute favorite!!! I used to let my gardens sit ready for so long because I didn’t want to take the time to harvest, now they’re harvested all the time! And I agree Michael, I love that little popping sound too :-)

    I love the Puppy Patrol Barracks Bunkbed. How can I get it?

    I need to agree that making this wallpaper available in this tiny little window is very disappointing! In 2018 (Jan. 2-31), it was just a purple snowboard suit, so not a big deal to me because there’s so many other cool clothes. In 2019 (Jan. 2-31), it was the Ivy fairy buddy, not a huge deal because I don’t collect buddies. BUT, now for 2020 this wallpaper very specifically goes with the flooring being given away. Why do that?? And so far, the 2018 and 2019 gifts have never been offered again. So that makes me think this new wallpaper will never be offered again. I sure hope another similar and just as cool nighttime wallpaper that could work with this flooring will be offered at least at the eStore for regular purchase. ;)

    So….I will have to make a choice to renew my Deluxe Membership on Jan.1 so I can get the Super Deluxe item, OR….on Jan.2 so I can get the wallpaper that goes with the flooring you are giving us the code for in this video? Who thought this was a good idea? I cancelled my auto-renewal for this? Honestly, members that become Deluxe Members, anytime during the calendar year, should get the “Super Deluxe Item”! Why would you want us to have only two of three items to make this theme? Is it to force us to buy the wall paper, if we decide to renew on Jan. 1? Have the Super Deluxe Item for where you renew during the calendar year, and have the flooring and wallpaper in the Pod Casts or in the January or February Deluxe Gift Box!! This was NOT well thought out!

      The Super Deluxe Item applies to all 1-year memberships purchased in 2020. The Wallpaper is a bonus item for purchases made between Jan 2 and Jan 31

      • alucard says:

        So…if I wait until Jan. 2 thru Jan. 31, I will get the wallpaper AND the Super Deluxe Item? If that’s right, then I apologize for misunderstanding. Sometimes the information posted in Webkinz Newz is unclear, as it seems that I am not the only one who didn’t understand this. Thank you for clarifying this for us. :-)

      • Quilter says:

        Why is it I never get my Super Deluxe item? For the first two years, I called in to get it, then I just got tired of calling and decided it wasn’t worth it. I just renewed my deluxe and signed up yesterday and, once again, didn’t get the SD item.

    does anyone know a kinzcash non-deluxe wallpaper that goes good with the aurora flooring? I would love to get the flooring for my moon fox…but it drives me crazy when my wallpaper and flooring don’t at least SOMEWHAT go together

    • KarenaJ says:

      I feel the same way. The problem is this flooring is a nightime scene so it doesn’t really “match up” with anything that I’ve found. It looks okay with the countryside christmas wallpaper if it’s a town scene and the observatory wallpaper if you put a border up you can almost pull off an icy moonlight mountain scene. Almost. I agree with alucard that this wasn’t well thought out. The wallpaper is not an option for most of us, only those lucky enough to be purchasing a yearly membership in January.

      • LolliPup says:

        I was going to say just that, I figured out that it looks halfway decent with the Countryside Christmas wallpaper. Good eye, KarenaJ!

      • KarenaJ says:

        In a weird way, it looks kinda cool with the celestial wallpaper, but that one is deluxe. Extended floors don’t match up with non extended walls, and vice versa, it always looks a bit off. But sometimes they’ll do for a temporary fix.

        • KarenaJ says:

          holding out hope the rocky snowy wallpaper we’ll get next month through the challenge will match up nicely with the Aurora Borealis floor *fingers crossed*

          • kittenhideout says:

            I think it looks decent with the undersea wallpaper, but I like it even better with the observatory and the aquatic expedition wallpapers. I haven’t decided which of those 2 I’ll pair it with yet. Thank you for this cool flooring!

        • tigerlily1975 says:

          kittenhideout, what is the undersea wallpaper?

          • kittenhideout says:

            If you go to the W shop, choose decorations then walls, it’s the 3rd one on page 9. I don’t know if it’s part of a theme room, I know the undersea theme has a ‘royal undersea’ wall that is different than this one, so I only know to find it in the decorations section.
