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.

Well I got 3 pairs of slips, 2 windows, 5 vines, 9 plushes, and 12 posters. But not a single bobble head or charm on any of my accounts!

It just stinks for people like me who worked so hard and did lots of trades and sacrificed lots of very valuable items to get slips and now they make it easy for people to get them. I wish I had known about this long before, I would have waited and not traded for them.

I so agree with this, everyone who tries to get my pair literally offers me wshop, and kinz style outlet! I'm not trading them until I know exactly how rare they are still. I worked very hard for my original pair which I've had for months, and now I'm not trading away my extra pairs for practically nothing! People on webkinz newz are GIVING them away to people in addition to a trade! Yikes!

I go to the trading room everyday and I have seen a lot of people offering slips for trade but not for Wshop or Kinz clothes.....it is a good thing to always remember that there are some people who will try and cheat the other trader with "so called" values of the day.......I have seen this many many times.......I spent a lot of time and real cash (7 whole boxes of series 4) to get my pair of slips......and I was lucky enough to get ten more pairs during the promotion but I plan on holding on to them until the dust settles......I'm sure that slips will always remain popular and the value may be a little lower but not so low as Wshop items........I least I hope I'm right!!

You are smart to hold on to them until the dust settles. I have seen this happen before, and after a couple of months, the old value holds on items like this. When KinzStyle items have been offered on the wheels (such as the Sunny Summer Hat this year), they become more abundant in the trading rooms for a while, and within a couple of months, it is just like before the event.
The posters and plushies were the items that were most plentiful. I wouldn't really worry about the slippers; they are so cute, I'm sure there will always be a huge demand for them.

I think what is important to remember is that 'value' is set by demand a lot of the time. Those 'slips' were never priceless items. You can still purchase trading cards and they were still always available...it was the 'desire' to have them that made the value what they were in the trading rooms...but in my mind, those 'slips' were never a priceless item...and I, for one, am glad they showed up the way they did in the peek-a-newz because now I can actually wear mine into the trading room without being hounded for them...

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.

Are people aware that there are two different pairs of purple slippers? I have both of them. One is as pictured and the other has no strap on them. As for doing the PAN search-it isn't that often that the slippers were given out. Even so, people are still trying to trade them for things that still retain a much higher value. Trading is interesting right now because Ganz has not restored our KC+ yet.
