The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Wallpaper!


723-1.png    2686-1.png
 
Our Webkinz Insider members who are decorating for Halloween have been puzzled - and delighted - to find retired Halloween Wallpaper and Flooring in the W Shop. The Wallpaper currently available for all to purchase in the New section of the W Shop, is the (until now) retired Haunted House Wallpaper, from 2006. Similarly, the Halloween Flooring available in the W Shop is the Haunted Creatures Flooring last seen in 2010. 
 
Thanks to Steve Webkinz (a senior writer for Webkinz World) on Facebook, we have the solution to this mystery. These retired wallpaper and flooring were put in the W Shop by error, but they will remain there until the maintenance of Oct 30. On Oct 30, they will be replaced by last year's wallpaper and flooring, which were the intended ones all along: the Horrifying Halloween Wallpaper and Flooring.
 
This is your chance to stock up on these vintage items!

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

Has this kind of error ever happened before ?? I can not remember & Thanks for the great information

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

I wonder if we can keep the wallpaper and flooring after we already bought it.

the Undersea Porthole was un retired for about a month back in '09 (most likely Acidental). Im not to sure about anything else

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

I feel bad for people who traded a lot for the original...but I am SUPER DUPER happy to add this wallpaper to my collection! I've been wanting it forever!

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

Also yes those were at such a high value

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

Yeah and I asked him how long the intended wallpaper and flooring will be in the WShop and he said until Nov. 20th. Here's a link for proof. http://www.*************/momskinz.ww...t=feed_comment

Darn it! Here I'll download a screen shot because I'm not sure if that link works.

Here's a screen shot because I'm not sure if the link works.

And I'm okay with the Lillybell name showing because that's my account and it's only a gaming account so I don't care if people see that name.

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

thanks for the info ...........

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

I can kind of understand how Ganz could mix the papers up when I went to check the WIGEV to be sure I was seeing the old wall paper and floors the names are almost the same


2006 is Haunted House Wallpaper

2010 is Haunted House Walls

so it would be very easy (especially for me)

so we get the 2006 walls and the 2010 floors -too bad Ganz just doesn't add the 2006 floors lol

sorry for those that paid big KC for them -

I just don't know if that wallpaper and flooring I already put in my room will automatically change to the grey and green set.

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

OK, this is strange, but great too. I actually won this wallpaper from WKN yesterday. Was supposed to be bricks, but came up as the retire Halloween wallpaper. Happy Friday!

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

Well as good as it has been to be able to buy these retired items, there is the down side to this!!!
The Halloween retired wallpaper and floors like the sailor outfits just went down in value!!! Sad when something like the wallpaper has been retired for almost 7 years, and now it will be like starting over again! It's almost pointless to buy overstock of these items cause of this. Everyone is able to buy it again.

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

none of the Halloween stuff is showing up for me since last night in the wshop. the costumes are also blank.

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

I can't wait until they re-release the Black & White Cat Costume (Hat, Feet, Shirt, and Pants) !! And also for next Halloween; they will re-release the: Monster's Lair Gate, Haunted House Flooring, Ghostly Urn, Gargoyle Lamp and the Spider's Web Window !!

AND ALSO that I want:
Brown Belt
Fancy Chocolate Heart
Gummy Spiders
Marshmallow Bunnies
Webkinz Day Year 1 Cake (from gift)
Webkinz Cares Dining set

Thanks Ganz!!

That's why I don't buy anything from them anymore !!



Sincerely,
blueguy

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

Ganz, please since you have so generously given us the 2006 wallpaper, please release the 2006 floors!!!! We would really really appreciate it!

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

Great! I can't wait to go buy them! Thanks, Ganz!

Actually, what that says is that "last year's Halloween flooring and wallpaper will appear on Oct. 30" (as was intended) But they are replacing the vintage items with what was originally planned on Oct. 30, and will remove those on November 20th.

Thanks for the info.

Re: The Mystery of the 2006 Haunted house Flooring!

I always wondered why Webkinz states that it frowns upon people selling their 'priceless" items which is done by a lot of people on auction sites. Webkinz causes this themselves and releasing this wallpaper shows my point. How many times have they trotted out and recycled the same gifts or prizes and yet they don't re-issue the early years items so we can all have them? It iss a bit disappointing to me to see a lot of what I think is a bit of greed here on WI. Everyone is worried about 'their' loot or what can they get for what they have. I used to love trading in the trading room but many will agree it has turned into a nasty feeding frenzy due to scamming or those who are trying to give "pricelss" items when they are not, but the kids don't know this. I have sat for 10+ minutes waiting to trade while the person is on WI checking the "price" which I have also said before (and got a lot of nasty feedback for) -- if WI didn't have a massive " this is what it's worth" list made up of thin air, all the mean spirit would go out of the trading. Now that luckily this wallpaper is out again, this isn't a priceless rare item that can be used to go take 3 Signature pet items from a 12 year old for. I think it's nice and I wish Webkinz would make more "mistakes" like this and even the playing field. It's just stuff, and the Deluxe/dont have Deluxe "gap" is bad enough without more space between what is supposed to be fun
