I ordered the Pink Giggly Zum (Zool) on ebay two days ago. It's supposed to be here on Thursday, but I was hoping it would come sooner.
Now I'm a little confused... Since I haven't had to do anything with Zumbuddies yet I'm not sure the truth about what happens. I'd really like to get the Blue Lazy Zum (Zlock) another time, but I wanted it even more when I found out that Zumbuddies each had their own rooms, could play with each other, etc.
NOW I find out that your best chances of getting Zummies are when you have like all six!
But the one thing I don't understand is why is everyone getting so worked up over this? You'll eventually get enough Zummies to buy stuff either way, so I'm not sure why everyone's like regretting buying a Zumbuddy and stuff...

Thank you all for the great insite. My sister went to the mall today and found the purple Tricky Zumbuddie Zalo for me -- I'm not so sure I want to install the code. As some of you have stated... Our webkinz time is precious... some days only have time to do the dailies quickly- I'm not sure I want to have to invest so much time to make this worthwhile. I hope Ganz receives so much feedback they'll rethink the award precentage.

I have a large investment in Webkinz already - over 170 in our "family" and Ienjoy playing with them all. From what you've all stated now this little guy will really take up al lot of their time.

Thank you to everyone who is working so hard to do the research on this new segment.

I am not impressed at this point....the little bugs aren't happy most of the time and nothing happened with a party but a lot of noise and balloons and confetti. I don't have the time to sit with it for hours...went from 100% happy to 15% in seconds...I hope this is new item glitch.

It is better for them to start out with something being too hard and gradually his develops we will be able to earn the zummies. I certainly hope so.
I wish you were right but I disagree, for months and months we have had no change in our ability to find good items in the incredibly unfair and unmotivating Woodland forest game. I am not happy at all right now about what they have done with these zumbuddies. To me they are tricking kids into thinking they are getting something really special only to find out they will be seriously disappointed. Thats a crying shame if you ask me. I never have take a stand like this before...but this one takes the cake for me. I have been unhappy from the start. I don't really feel they will change this unless people just quit buying the zums altogether.

What is ganz trying to do to kids? Do they honestly think its healthy to put kids in a position to be in front of a computer endless hours damaging their eyes when they could be outside playing, doing homework and socializing? So much of what they have added lately can't be enjoyed unless there is this never ending time spent on a computer. I don't want the kids on the computer all day. There is no exercise in that. If they care about the well being of children they need to consider all these things because kids should not be on a computer hours and hours taking care of a zum just to make some zummies. They can learn about adult behaviors sure,, but they are still kids and they don't need this much responsibility at this age. Fun yes, but they don't have to have a reality call on everything in Webkinz World as being like the real world. They are kids, lets let them be kids, enjoy being young, expose them to adult concepts but please lets not over do it. And what kind of message does it give the kids when adults are on the computer endless hours so they (kids) can have these wonderful WW experiences? What are we teaching them by spending this time on the computer? I don't think anything good. If you don't want the kids on the computer all day, then certainly we should model also that this is not right for us either. jmo.

Confused: If you have klips and have zummies, can you use them them for the Zumbuddies???
Unfortunately the zummies for both areas are different. So, it doesnt really matter what account you put them on as long as you put all of them together if you have more than 1.

The problem is that unless you adopt a few right off the bat, you don't even have enough zummies to even buy them a bed. You get 10 zummies of each color for each zumbuddy you enter and the only way to get the "shower of zummies" that ganz talks about is is you have a 5 zum party. (the max you can have party together is apparently 5) this gives you the best chances of getting zummies and you get about 15 zummies at a time.

So now after investing $25.98 plus tax, and about 15 hours of my time I have gotten 60 zummies. Finally enough to buy a bed and chair or maybe two beds for my zums!

i started to think today that it depended on the zumbuddies you have...but it appears to be random. the first 5 times I got zummies I never got any pink ones. but now I have a pretty even number of all, except purple i have 10 more purple than everything else!

We're not just unpaid beta testers, we actually pay GANZ to test their products for them ! Sorry to say this but after numerous patient and nice phone calls to condescending customer service reps, I've decided the only way to make them listen and fix things is to stop buying essentially defective toys until they do their job right.
