*Warning* Shimmer Bunny adoption changes to Hummingbird


We have had a number of complaints that the the new Webkinz Shimmer Bunny is not what it seems.
 
Two of our users, Celinab123 and Cloud have reported to us that when they adopted their new pets they were surprised and disappointed to find instead they had adopted regular sized Hummingbirds. Also the gift you receive is the Hummingbird package, not the Shimmer Bunny's.
 
The Coding for the Shimmer Bunny is exactly the same as the Hummingbird except that it is HM502 for the Shimmer Bunny and HS502 for the Hummingbird, one slight letter off.
 
For those of you who have not yet adopted your Shimmer Bunny it would not be advisable to do so until Ganz has had an opportunity to fix this error in coding in their database.
 
Please keep an eye on Webkinz Insider and we will keep you posted as to when it is safe to adopt your Shimmer Bunny.
 
If you have already adopted a Shimmer Bunny only to discover that it has wings, please contact Ganz here: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/wiki/Contact_Ganz
 
UPDATE:  Ganz has responded to this issue.  They say the programming will be fixed on Monday.

Re: *Warning* Shimmer Bunny adoption changes to Hummingbird

Huh, interesting...I'm sure that Ganz will fix this quickly. On the plus side, hey, shape-shifting rabbits!
Thanks for the news, Dixiecup, and congrats on your adoptions, Celinab and Cloud!

Thanks so much Dixie!!

We should wait!

Re: *Warning* Shimmer Bunny adoption changes to Hummingbird

thats not good.

Re: *Warning* Shimmer Bunny adoption changes to Hummingbird

Wow, that's no good! I hope it gets resolved, the shimmer bunny is cute! But so is the Hummingbird, lol.

Perhaps it's a ninja-shape shifting rabbit

Is the hummingbird "regular" size not lil kinz? My daughter just said go get me a shimmer bunny because she has always wanted a full sized hummingbird (or cardinal or canary). I told her they would probably fix the glitch and her dream of a full size bird would turn into a rabbit.

It's full size.

Re: *Warning* Shimmer Bunny adoption changes to Hummingbird

Aw sorry that's disappointing ...Wait by regular hummingbird do you mean the little kinz or is it a full size webkinz?!? Because that would be kind of cool!

Re: *Warning* Shimmer Bunny adoption changes to Hummingbird

Full size hummingbird.

Re: *Warning* Shimmer Bunny adoption changes to Hummingbird

Hopefully Ganz fixes that.

Re: *Warning* Shimmer Bunny adoption changes to Hummingbird

This is so bad!!! So sorry that happened to members who tried to adopt Shimmer Bunnies.
