Webkinz Players Continue to Figure Out Nafaria Star Trading
We are nearly two weeks into the Nafaria Star Trading event, and Webkinz players are still trying to figure out exactly how this new feature works. Based on the original descriptions posted by Ganz, it was thought that this event would be just like trading with Doug the Dog, but with a "click to win" element. Now players are now realizing that this "bad fairy" has added in some twists of her own.
Many players are complaining about how difficult it is to find Nafaria, adding that sometimes when she finally is found she disappears in a puff of purple smoke, without offering to trade. Other times she offers to trade but then steals the stars without leaving a prize. Unfortunately, this appears to be the way she was programmed. Repeated calls placed by our members to Ganz Customer Service have all been getting similar responses: that it may not be possible to trade with Nafaria every day and to just keep looking.
The prizes themselves have also been confusing Webkinz players. Unlike Doug the Dog, who gives out better, more valuable prizes each time a player trades, Nafaria seems to like to trade cookies over and over again with the same players, no matter how many times they find her. Some players have been lucky enough to get pieces of a new Lunar Suit outfit, but these are turning out to be very hard to get. The picture Ganz included with the KinzVille Times story showed several interesting furniture items that appeared to be prizes for this event. At this point it is not known what a player has to do to earn them.

UPDATE (Monday, 10:45am, ET): Ganz just released the following announcement: There's an issue with Nafaria's Star Challenge that causes users 2 C a puff of smoke without the option to trade stars. We're working on it.
UPDATE (Tuesday, 12:50pm, ET): Ganz has released another statement: Hey everyone! Nafaria is still flying around Webkinz World but she's having an issue with trading stars. We're still fixing the issue.
