Oh Thank you! Love thoses, will have to make a house painting room!

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

Unfortunately, it's a little glitchy, and I am "stuck" at clue #3! <sigh>

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

I got stuck waiting for the pop up after clue 2, still haven't been able to do the challenge treasure hunt!

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

I can't wait to do it! Love it!

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

I completed the Treasure Hunt on 4 accounts and the 2nd clue worked fine for all 4 of them.

The 2nd clue's answer is Mobile Apps.

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

We haven't been able to finish the last one - it stuck on the 1st clue and won't go on. Had never had a problem up to that time..

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

Finished up mine early this morning. Super easy and thankfully no glitches early this morning. Super cute. Good luck to all!

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

Mine is stuck on clue number two also.

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

i have tried numerous times and the pop up for clue 2 will not come. Any Suggestions? I have tried both IE and Firefox.

the pop up on mobile apps wouldn't come up

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

I did the hunt, by hitting the back key and then it brings up the next clue.

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

I'm seeing errors on the page for the 3rd clue. It's not recognizing the Mobile
Apps choice which should then give clue 3.
I tried the back button and that did not resolve for me.

I'm trying to log off and back on again to see if it brings up Clue 3

We haven't been able to finish the last one either - not showing the 'found' clue even though we are positive the locations are correct... really frustrating! And our boys LOVE baseball and really wanted the Bulldog & bat rack! Urgh!

Hope others were able to get it.

Happy New Year WI Family!

Re: New Year's Treasure Hunt Added To Webkinz Newz!

These usually give me no trouble, because I do them on day 1. For the December ones, I left them for my kids to do, but by the time they tried, they didn't work. So I was surprised when this new one didn't work on the first day. First was Firefox, then I tried in chrome, nothing. Finally I tried in IE and started with the bulldog one for my kids. And it worked!! Though after I did them it'd switch to the reindeer hamster clue and that didn't work. But as long as I cleared cache after winning each figure, I WAS able to get all 3 hippos. I was using the same computer, so maybe the browser was it. Worth a try. I hope it works for everyone who's having trouble.

It sounds like fun, well, once the glitches get resolved.

I was able to do this Treasure Hunt on my Mac, using Firefox, with no problems at 230KT. Perhaps glitches are fixed?
