Default Answered: How do I find a particular item in the WIGEV?

Many times I want to look up the value of an item, and I don't know what type of item it is. Is it Holiday? Or Click to win? Or a PSI? So I don't know what category search under!

Is there an easy way to find an item, if you don't know where to look?

My most recent example is the Dex Dangerous Suit Top. I have no idea where to begin with that. I tried the search function, but it didn't return anything from the WIGEV guide.

I'd dearly love a search function where we enter an item name, and it returns a picture, what type of item it is, how to get it, and value information. There's so much information available here on WI, but it's scattered. It would be so nice to have it integrated into one database!

Or is there already something like that, and I don't know to use it??

Thanks for any help!

Emmegirl, you are quite right. I tried searching for the Dex Dangerous Suit Top, and got nothing useful in my search results. If I didn't already know what it was, I wouldn't be able to find it either.

The Dex Dangerous Suit Top is part of the Trading Card series 4 Character Clothing.
It's on this page:
(WIGEV) Trading Card Items - Webkinz Insider Wiki
and illustrated here:

It's worth 2000-3000 according to the WIGEV, but it is a hard-to-find item because it can be hard to find series 4 Trading Cards

You can just type in the item name in the search box there. Here's a link that shows how;

I tried that, but it didn't return anything useful. Here's a screen shot of the results. I still have no idea where the item came from, how to get it, or how much it's worth.

Hmm, yeah I see what you mean. I guess you have to go to the category of the item and scroll from there.

Just a tip on searching in the wiki (or in the forum too);

Use quotation marks for specific items.
If you put the item in quotation marks it will look for the whole string of words; so

"Dex Dangerous Suit Top"

will find the location better than

Dex Dangerous Suit Top

though I admit that I also had touble.

In this case, reducing it to just

"Dex Dangerous Suit"
seemed to do the trick . . . but why did the Top cause a problem? I have no idea.

Here's the link to searching help in the Wiki

Help:Searching - Webkinz Insider Wiki

Spoiler on searching below

Spoiler: show
I didn't gain too much from the link above; in fact it seems to say that putting it in quotation marks is no different than putting "and" between the words; but when I compared to the (Dex and Dangerous and Suit) it did not give me the same result as "Dex Dangerous Suit" so the quotation marks truly seemed to help me when I am searching and I ALWAYS use them for particular items.

Hmm this is weird. I can't pretend to understand why the search bar does what it does. The only reason I can think this is a problem is that "top" is a common word on many pages. Sorry I can't be of more help

Good morning!

I see above you found an answer but were having trouble with the search engine of the Wiki, to find your item? Here is another way I have found, it has the whole Wiki on one page. You can now simply follow the instructions to search for an item on that screen, this info is located at the very top of the link page I will give to you. Entire WIGEV on one page - Webkinz Insider Wiki WARNING: Give it several minutes to load

Good luck!
