    Dear Michael and Mandy, I really hope that the hotel theme is available to regular players. It is not fair that all the new room themes and furniture, decor etc. are available only with Estore points etc. please note also, all the real challenging games (like Eager Beaver) are only available to deluxe members as is the vacation room. Why did Webkinz do that? I am an adult player and I keep my children and Grandchildren’s accounts alive until they want to take it back. I will never become a deluxe member as the cost is not worth it. But it is an amazing site and great to play on. Thank you, CDDC

      I agree with you 100%. I get a bit upset when I see something in the W-Shop that I like (and want) but can’t buy. I do love Webkinz World and I have for a long time but I won’t buy Estore points or a Deluxe membership. But I will be a Webkinz member for a long time to come!

      I’m also and adult player and frankly, I can’t justify spending even a little bit of my salary on a Webkinz account. The only reason I have a deluxe membership is because a 12 month subscription was on sale.

      Same here…I’ve been playing my children’s accounts and my own since 2008. Still love it. It also isn’t fair when you wait all day because Arte said there’s a rare item coming in at 7pm and it ends up being a Deluxe item! The game should know which accounts have Deluxe or epoints so only those items will show on them…anyways just had to add that :)

    I hope that this is available with Kinzcash and not eStore. I can’t ever buy ANYTHING because it’s all for points :(

    Sally Webkinz, please help.Do you know if there is an issue with the Gizmo Buddy for reaching 400,000 points in the family score? I saw it come down in the “new items” section on the taskbar, but when i look for it in any category, I can’t find it to use it. Thank You, ggsparkle.

    What a great episode! Thanks so much for reading my comment, and congratulations to everyone else on having your KinzPost featured! I really enjoyed listening to Mike and Erik and learning about the creative process behind the Hotel theme, from designing the concept art to implementing the items in-game – All of the artists are very talented! The second half of the theme looks amazing – I can hardly wait for its release! Michael – The rooms you designed are beautiful – I love the Zangoz Soda Machine that you added to your Hotel Hallway! Thanks for the Sneak Peek – I’m definitely looking forward to this year’s Wacky Zingoz Celebration! Thanks so much for another awesome episode – Looking forward to tuning in next time :o)
