    Some great events on the schedule for June! :)

    Oh my gosh the Bright Idea buddy is adorable! And note aside, I’m wondering who amongst the Webkinz busy bees is a Bugs Bunny fan? I’m vastly amused by Goober’s last name by boat loads and all I can think of is one particular episode of classic Bugs Bunny with the King in the episode shouting out “Cook! Cook! Where’s my hausenfeffer?!” :D

    Hey, the wheel of wow keeps kicking me out of webkkinz entirely in my overseas accounts (2 Asian, 3 UK). I’m sadly somewhat resigned* to the Deluxe Prize machine kicking me out and leaving me prizeless, but never had the Wow wheel do it. Haven’t done my US accounts yet, although usually this glitch does not strike there. (*Actually no, I am not resigned, I hate it, it happens almost every other time the DPM is available and please for the love of Bob and all his tiny flaming pineapples can this pleeease be looked into and finally fixed? Because it has happened for years now, and — as you know — deluxe costs a lot of monies.)

    • roachiesmom1 says:

      Nope, it just happened on a US account, too. Five accounts before this did not do this, but yeah, hit the button and instantly got the “You will be logged out” pop up for this account. Have five more to do after this.

        I have problems with fireplaces and musical instruments not working after about 10 years. These are my pet specific items in many cases . not happy about this many nuts and bolts issues never fixed and apparently never addressed. I did miss about three years so I dont know if info was given out by the webkinz team . I also seem to have lost my high standing in classes at webkinz academy and in some cases can no longer do jobs at all. I do not understand webkinz now; it seems very restrictive. No more player visitations; players seemingly have stopped meeting in the park; no more parties. I keep hanging in there but so many issues seem to never be addressed. I am a long time player; my children grew up with webkinz, and I now have their accounts also. Feel rather marginalized. So sad

        • Elizabeh says:

          Those original keyboards are one of the items not working, along with my pink poodle piano !

        • roachiesmom1 says:

          I know. It’s really awful how many items have been left in limbo. And how many things that were left hanging that way years and years before “flash ended” and “new programming, sorry” became a de facto excuse for leaving it that way forever. I also inherited my kid’s account, plus some others, plus the ones I started because clearly lunatic, for a grand total of 16 now. Also, yo, team. I still have this wheel of wow thing happening, still buggin’ my US accounts. Other than how I obviously should have knocked salt, thrown wood and broke all the mirrors before I said stupid things like ‘not in my US accounts’ that first time, can this please be corrected? Getting kicked out of the game is a huge pain, especially since ‘flash ended.’ ‘new programming.” “sorry” login info is no longer saved and has to be typed. every. single. freaking. TIME.
