    I agree with Joo Joo on keeping a diary. I have one and sometimes I go back and read something from a couple years ago that I haven’t even thought about in a long time and the memorys come back pretty clear. It’s really cool. Whenever I go to a birthday party I usually get a diary and some cute pens or pencils as a birthday present. :)

    This is quite possibly my favorite Podkinz episode, mostly because I myself am an aspiring artist. JooJoo’s words are so inspiring! There is a program for graphic design in the high school that I’m going to go to and I will definitely snap up the opportunity. Gennelle, I know my comment is probably buried under dozens of pages by now, but if you read this, could you make a Podkinz episode featuring Webkinz pet designs (if it hasn’t been done already)? I know there have been pages that show concept art for different Webkinz, but a Podkinz episode about it would be so great. On the subject of concept art, could we see some for Webkinz hosts and characters? Particularly the Zingoz and Zangoz, because they’re such weird creatures that I’ve always wondered how they came about. Oh, and also Goober because he’s my favorite. Goober needs to be in more stuff

    Ganz, please, bring back music videos! I miss tem, and i’m also looking into future jobs, and every music teacher I’ve met tells me I’ve got a pretty good shot at a singing career. i’m only in 6th grade, but I could REALLY use some money to go to my goal; getting EVERY webkinz poodle from now on, and naming them after a food or sweet!

    I think Fluffington would make a good mayor.

    I’ve run in an election before for my grade’s students council, to be treasurer, but I unfortunetly forgot to make posters and lst. -sighs- And don’t you notice how the most popular always wins the elections? -sighs again-

    • playnowpuppy says:

      Yeah the Populare kids always win :( I’m not saying I’m populare, because I got to be Vice President ones, it was mainly because I worked really hard! A really populare girl almost beat me but she never made posters or anything

    Dear Podkinz, I’m in a Rainbowloom Club at my Library and we learn a ton of REALLY cool things on our looms! We have an ellection every 6 months for president of the club and vice president :) My best friend won this year, and she now has the officalle president Rainbowloom title :) I won the title of Vice Presedent Rainbowloom :) Everyone agrees we work well as the President and Vice President of the club because we work together and have fun :D

    • etncpink says:

      Congrats, planowpuppy! I am sure you and your best friend will make a great team! (PS where do you get all the loom bands???? I run out like every time I buy some!!!) Lol!

    Dear Podkinz, I am SO excited for the Kinzville elections! I can’t wait to see all of the candidates and vote for my favorite! My advice to whoever becomes mayor is to think of the welfare of the town, and also to interact with the citizens and take their ideas into consideration. I hope for a mayor who supports the town and takes the best care of the citizens that they can. Overall, I love the story Ganz has put together, and could not ask for more! Thanks!
