It's an exciting day for fans of the Kooky Scientist theme in Webkinz World! The long-awaited Kooky Scientist Wallpaper is finally making its appearance after years of speculations. Congratulations to Webkinz Insider member KaptJaneway who received this wallpaper as a Trading Card Series 1 prize. Thanks to KaptJaneway for providing us with this picture of their new Kooky Scientist room, seen above, with some other Rare items. The flooring seen here is not part of the theme, although there is indeed a Kooky Scientist Flooring not yet released.
Pictures of this wallpaper have appeared in a tantalizing way, here and there over the years, and it's a great thrill to see it become accessible to our members. It remains to be seen whether this wallpaper will also be available in other ways besides the Trading Card Series 1, which can be hard to find.
KaptJaneway also received some Kooky Test Tubes as Trading Card prizes, which you can see here in the Items section of the dock:
Neither the Kooky Scientist Wallpaper nor the Kooky Test Tubes are kinzpostable. The test tubes are an animated item: they bubble, light up and wiggle a bit.

Thank you to Webkinz Insider Member miss spots for bringing to our attention some interesting virtual trading card pack information. It appears that when members are opening virtual trading card packs from Series 1 & 2 in their Webkinz World rooms that the "Webkinz Doodlez" and "At Paw Level" cards are being awarded very frequently allowing members to finally collect them all and unlock the prizes that go along with them. The "Webkinz Doodlez" and "At Paw Level" cards were previously very rare and very seldomly awarded. Once all 8 of the "Webkinz Doodlez" cards from Series 1 are collected the Kinzville Sketched Window is awarded and once all 8 of the "At Paw Level" cards from Series 2 are collected the At Paw Level Display Screen prize is awarded. If you have some unused trading cards sitting in your dock today might be the best day to use them to finally complete your trading card collection!
For about the past week, we have been getting reports from members here on Webkinz Insider that they have been having problems with their Series 1 Trading Cards. Some players are getting unexpected errors when entering the feature codes on the cards. The error says that the prize is an "Feature is Invalid - Theme AB: 28".
Based on the conversations our members have had with the support staff at Ganz, it appears that the Webkinz programmers are aware of the problem and are working on it. One player was told this afternoon to hold onto the codes and try them again "in about three days".
Some members are speculating that the feature codes with problems had been programmed to award items from the recently retired Kooky Scientist Theme.
The new Trading Card Albums have arrived in stores. Thank you to Webkinz Insider member jessicabarnhart for sharing pictures with us of the prize she received from entering the feature code: a new Series 3 Trading Cards Pedestal. This pedestal is an interactive item that can be used to track your Trading Card collection. Clicking on the Pedestal opens a "Collector's Book" in which you can view pictures of the Series 3 cards, check off the cards you have, check off the cards you want, and print a copy of your "wish list".
There are now five different Trading Card pedestals in Webkinz World. They are:
Series 1 Trading Cards Pedestal(Original Trading Card Album Code Prize)
Series 2 Trading Cards Pedestal(Original Trading Card Album Code Prize)
Trading Card Condo Pedestal(Series Three Trading Card Feature Code Prize)
Series 3 Trading Cards Pedestal (New Trading Card Album Code Prize)
Card Collector Pedestal(Series Four Trading Card Feature Code Prize)
Thank you to Webkinz Insider member thecarters05 for providing us with a clear picture of what has come to be know as the "Brown Yorkie" sticker from the Series 4 Trading Cards. Is this sticker an indication that Ganz is planning on releasing a Brown Yorkie, or is this just a more accurate picture of what a Webkinz Yorkie should look like? As many of our members pointed out back when the Webkinz (white) Yorkie was originally released, there is no such thing as a pure-bred "White Yorkie" and the animal released by Ganz looks more like a Maltese. If/when Ganz releases any information, we will let you know.
Thank you to Webkinz Insider member dana0921 for sharing this picture with us. It's from the back of a Series 4 Trading Card. Could this be a previously unannounced Blue Googles? At this point we just don't know. Unlike the card with the Walrus we showed you a few days ago, this card does not have any description.
