Default Well so much for the value of the purple slips

Well as of tomorrow the value of the coveted purple slips has fallen. The newz has said there will be a peek a news starting tomorrow and that is one of the prizes. This is going to make a lot of collectors happy and mad at the same time

Well, the promotion only runs for a week.

I've always thought it was a scam that people want so much for those pretty little slippers. They are a prize from the trading cards and are not retired. They became popular in the trading rooms and the demand for them went out of control. I could buy a pack or trading cards today and have a chance of getting a pair of slippers. I am so glad that they decided to do this peek a newz event. Good luck everyone..........don't let a little pair of pixel slippers ruin your day!!


*I would like to add that I have bought many packs of trading cards and have personally gotten the slippers almost as many times as the other clothing items. Yes, the chance is rarer than some of the other pieces, but not impossible. The only thing keeping the so-called "value" of the slippers up is demand and the fact that people want huge items for them.

I noticed Ganz has started making different leveled prizes for the Peek a Newz... some are very hard to get, as we saw with the Cave Explorer Top in AP peek a news and Stoogles Plush in Alex Floaty promotion, and I am sure slips will be the same in this one along with the window since they are so coveted. I am hoping everyone has an opportunity to get them, because really I don't care for the value, I care about the fashion, and how well they look on pets.

That would be equally as nice! I would love some Shutter Shades for my pet.

You make good points, Price. Probably the slippers will be rarely given out.
The purple Dancing Shoes also sparkle and look nice on our pets; they were/are a prize for attending a clubhouse party - fairly easy to get.

Oh, cool! I don't have most of those prizes. In the trading room, I'll be asked if I have shuts slips or torn and I have to say, sorry don't have them. But maybe, just maybe, I'll get a couple pairs 'o slippers to trade!!

I have a pair of those pretty sparkling shoes, but they are very weird on my pet, and in my honest opinion, junky just because of how large in size they are, and are dress up clothes.

Default Re: Well so much for the value of the purple slips

Personally I think the slippers are over priced (over valued) in WW. So it would be nice to actually get some for the kiddos. However, I am not holding much hope for actually getting them. I am sure they will still be more difficult to get in the "random" prizes. Just like a few pieces of the park clothing (never did see that cloud dress or diving helmet) or in the wacky one (we felt lucky to get a charm or plush, the bigger better items were nearly impossible).

So I guess if the past events mean anything combined with our luck...out of 9 accounts, the only way we will get a pair of slips is if Ganz values them the same as a food. lol
