    I have 3 Gerbera Daisy Dresses – wish I could send them to people who like them – I just stuff them in a closet.

  2. ellaelk says:

    umm, the notification for the avocado bear box is coming up, but it’s not in the today’s activities section. Is this an error?

  3. mkd61_mkd says:

    Ah I want those Neo gothic shoes. Oh well. Love the potted plants and can’t wait for the new seeds

    webkinz news log in is back to normal…thank you

    • pepsi4324 says:

      No, it’s NOT!!! Did not receive my PKN boxes on 2 of my accounts. 2 others misssing flowers and on more than one day! Problems only started after Update. Please fix. Thank you!

      • piggitime says:

        pepsi4324, have you checked any of your accounts for duplicate as well as missing prizes? If you are logging in from the top right corner log in link, your prizes may go haywire into who knows what accounts you have or are connected to. And this has been happening to me since the pumpkin pie collection, for sure, not the most recent update. Here’s a work-around I recently figured out that may help, I hope it does. Don’t log in ahead of time — click the flower or meal or LAST PKN pet when it says Congratulations, THEN log in from there when it prompts. Once you are logged in that way, getting the rest of the prizes should work out and go to the intended accounts. So far it has worked for me this collection. During the infamous Pumpkin Pie event, we ended up with one account TEN slices out of sync from the other accounts. It’s craziness.

        • piggitime says:

          Basically make sure you are logging in to/with your actual webkinz account, not a webkinz newz user name/account attached to your webkinz account. That seems to be the trick.

    • piggitime says:

      Oh no, it is definitely still all kinds of messed up.

    So excited for fashion week!

  6. strawberrycream12 says:

    I am so excited for the bunk bed, the martial arts challenge, the appreciation prize, and the deluxe prize! Also, I love the flowers collection event! The prizes are so wonderful! Thank you!

  7. KarenaJ says:

    Love the Boho dress! Excited for the butterfly topiary.

  8. rsprang says:

    since the update I have a terrible time logging into webkinz news. it takes several attempts to get in. Will this be fixed?

  9. mtigger401 says:

    New challenges, etc. are great; but I would love to understand why there are so many issues every time there is an update. Currently, the peek-a-newz, flower, and meal can’t easily be obtained due to the “log in” pop up not working correctly. Does Webkinz not test the updates before releasing them? Issues happen in Next as well as Classic. I love both games and hope that updates in the future can be “de-bugged” before release.

      If it happens again, try refreshing your browser without closing anything, and try logging in again. I can’t promise it will work for you, but it did for me.

    • pepsi4324 says:

      Had the same problem. I went to the “Events” page and clicked on the food item, had problem when box loaded to enter info. I closed the box and reloaded the page to click on to get the box. Got messages that I was unfamiliar with. But, I just closed the login box and kept reloading the page until that login message was gone. Sometimes it would read that the login had timed out. But, I just kept reloading the same page that you click on to get the login box and, eventually, I could get it to work. Took me 7 or 8 times on several of my accounts. But, I did get it to work. May want to try that. Good Luck! Hope it works for you!
