I agree, cocoa. It all matters on the person's taste. For example, I do not want a lava lamp, but a neon plant

People like the lava lamps because they are rare and animated, and also because it's a trend.

The Trading Rooms have different values for things than WI does. WI is based on it's own trading, and WW's doesn't really have values, it just is all about how cool it looks or how popular it is w/ the group people (no offense? lol).

I prefer the older, less popular things like that Jelly Tree, Gold Safe, or Prismatic Chair because they aren't as wanted, and when they all get sold due to unpopularity, their values will get higher. Those Lava Lamps will get even more value because they are wanted much more.

When I climb to the rarest of unpopular items (like Blue Dragster or that Stone Elephant Statue), I can trade them off for much more rare things due to the popularity chart. See? I didn't expect you to understand... lol

it is kinda funny....i do like lava lamps but the ice cream tree, the lolly pop tree and other interesting retired also are my favorite! i love all the unique things webkinz has to offer and never stray to only certain things in trades. I love to see varietys of items, clothings and even food.

Every trading community on Webkinz World has their own values, whether they are set in stone on a guide, or not. This includes, WI, TR, and smaller Webkinz trading sites. I have been in many trading communities to realize huge differences among all of them. Most of the value usually relies upon how old it is.. then demand and rarity make up the rest of its value (however in certain cases, an item isn't old at all, in which demand and rarity make up most of the value)
However, I will tell you honestly.. there is a HUGE HUGE HUGE difference between the value system on WI, on TR, and on smaller communities. On WI, mostly everything goes by the WIGEV and is considered "fair." In the Trading Room, you have a lot of WI members who will go by the WIGEV, a lot of little kids who will offer you small items for large ones.. a lot of scammers who trick you into getting a PSF.. and then you have people who either don't care about what they have or don't know and will give you something amazing for nothing. Now on tiny communities, pretty much everything is not that hard to get (yes, by everything, I mean 05s, 06s, most level 10s, etc.), and the WIGEV is followed loosely....

I don't really trade much among newer items like the 08 retireds.. however, I do agree that the blue dragster and elephant statue are much rarer than the red lava is (must I repeat the fact about how I got 13 red lavas in 2 weeks? lol) But I do understand a little of what your saying at the end.. however.. uh I dunno. I've personally lost interest in getting more of the blue dragster and elephant statue ever since their replicas were offered in the e-store a while ago.. (I forget whether is was 2008 or 2009) but again, a lot of people really want the real thing Good luck
