Smile UPDATE: If you can never find WKN floating items...

... try downloading AdBlock Plus for your browser.

Since Webkinz Newz changed the layout design of their website, I hadn't been able to find a single floater or participate in any Peek-A-Newz events. All the way back to the floating Enchanted Elven Beds, there'd been
zip
, nada, nothing showing up for me at WKN events. It didn't matter which browser I used; nothing happened.

Then during Winterfest I read that some people were adding AdBlock Plus extensions to their browsers and that it was helping with snowflakes. I don't have any trouble with floaters in Webkinz World so didn't add it then, but when the "Find Chef Gazpacho" Peek-A-News event came up in WKN I decided to give AdBlock+ a try on the FireFox browser I normally use. IT WORKED!! I was able to find Chef Gazpacho so easily for all my accounts!!

I hoped it would make a difference with floating items too, and it has! Even before the layout change when I COULD find floaters, it would take a long time for them to show up -- sometimes as much as an hour. But
with AdBlock+ I found the featured floating item immediately or after just 5-6 refreshes!


I don't know who first suggested trying AdBlock Plus, but I am so thankful s/he did! Hope it works for other people who've had trouble as well!

UPDATE: For the floating Valentine's Rose Bouquet, I was unable to find any floating roses until I switched AdBlock+ OFF! Perhaps Ganz tweaked whatever was preventing some of us from seeing the "floaters" because they want us to see the ads? Waiting to see what happens in the next WKN event!

When I tried to install Adblock Plus on my mac, I got all kinds of warnings about not installing malicious software. Is this really a trusted website? Sorry to sound suspicious, but we've gotten some pretty bad malware on our old computers so I'm trying to be super safe. Thanks!

I've used AdBlock + for a long time and have had no bad issues with it, I love it!

It's just an add on for your Firefox browser. I don't think it really installs anything onto your computer itself.

I have a Mac and I did not get those warnings. Is it the Anti-virus software you are using?

I agree it might be the antivirus software that automatically issues that warning. I get the same warning with any add-ons I want to put on FireFox. But so far I've had no trouble at all with the AdBlock.

I will "add" that you do need to follow the instructions to choose a filter subscription from the choices it gives you in a separate window. The first time I put on the extension I bypassed that since I didn't know whether to trust it, but AdBlock won't work without it. I kept wondering why no ads were being blocked! I did some reading and discovered that step is crucial.


At this writing, AdBlock Plus shows a 5-star rating (out of 5) from 2,138 reviews and downloads at a rate of 925,550 a week. Looks like it's doing okay so far!

I was able to the floating items just fine on chrome. I was still reading info. about the floating items when it came across my screen,lol. I don't have any add-ons/programs (that I know of). But I couldn't find the latest Peek-a-newz. I looked, I waited, but no Chef Gaszpacho (what is it with Webkinz and z's?). I was kind of disappointed because I wanted the sandwich maker. Oh well

Anyway....... I have found that I can do any of the floating things well. Just not the Peek-a-newz.

I take that back: I can do the peek-a-newz just fine. It's just I'm so impatient, xD

See yaz!
