Hi!

Would you ever create an Alyssa game like the Doug the Dog gem hunt? We have several thrones but lots and lots of stars saved. It would be fun to look for Alyssa like we look for Doug!
Thank you for your time and considering our ideas

Okay, I'm so excited for this chance to ask some questions straight to the Creative Director himself! Thanks for this awesome opportunity!

Will you ever retire Pet of the Month items, as more and more new ones are introduced?

Also, do you have any plans to give us more options when purchasing outdoor rooms? Such as selecting snow flooring and backgrounds, sand flooring for beachy outdoor areas, or the traditional grass option. I think I'm speaking for most people when I say how awesome it would be to have more flexibility with this. For example, I would love to enjoy my winter rooms long after the snow has melted in WW.

Would you ever consider forming a partnership with Disney to release Disney themed items into WW? How cute would our little Webbies be sporting Mouse ears? Or even better....a Tinkerbelll costume!

I would love to see more exciting happenings going on over at the travel agency. Will you ever retire the current prizes and introduce new ones, to keep our interest going? Maybe some new raffles?

Thanks!

Mazin' Hamster question, part B (part A is in previous post, but these can either be considered 2 parts to the same question or you can treat them separately):

Recently, there has been another change to the Hamster programming. The background images in the Hamlet areas have been changed and are now more detailed and very beautiful. I really love them! When I go into a Hamlet area, this is what I see:

A beautiful background image, with a castle in the background:
Click the image to open in full size.

I get a little closer:
Click the image to open in full size.

Now, I pause for a second to decide whether I want to run forward through the field or not.

But, this is what happens when I pause (and my hamster does not change location from the previous picture):
Click the image to open in full size.

There is NO field to run through! As a matter of fact, there are boulders there which I just couldn't see until I paused for a few seconds! If my hamster got a little closer without pausing, then the boulders would have appeared; but they only appear when the hamster gets close enough to them.

My question to Part B:

Please let us know your opinion on why the Hamlet has been changed and if this is a permanent change to the Hamlet? It is very "foggy" (almost like a negative image in some cases) and you can't see very far in front of where your Hamster is standing/moving (but the background images render perfectly--even through boulders). Perhaps this change was made to make it harder for us to complete the challenges (now that we can't see more than a few yards in front of our hamster--with the exception of the far off background)?

What are the reasons behind the recent changes to the Hamster areas? Will these changes be adjusted so that the Hamster areas are more realistic as to how we humanly see objects, distant images and landmarks? When will we be able to enjoy playing with our hamsters in the Hamlet without felling like we are walking through a thick fog? Can you play in the Hamlet and let us know what you think?

Thank you!

There are so many features in WW, which makes it awesome, but is there any modification that you regret making or wish you could've changed?

This would be an incredible feature to add. I go bonkers at times trying to find things in my house.

I like the way you think, kitkat

Thank you for your consideration.

1. In the past few years several professional sports teams have had promotions for webkinz, and I was wondering if there were any team specific webkinz being created for any upcoming giveaways? I would love to see a T.C. Bear giveaway for the MN Twins this summer!

2. Would it be possible to have a contest to design a new webkinz that would actually be made and put up for sale, possibly one of the limited edition ones that are starting to come out?

3. From start to finish, how long does it take for a webkinz to go from the drawing board to being on the shelf in a store?

How did Ganz come up with the name Webkinz?
How did you come up the really cute "thread fur" like on the cocker spaniel and golden retriever?
Who does all the coding for your site?
Is Webkinz HQ like a big room with a bunch of huge computers mounted on the wall?
What was the second country Webkinz were sold in?
Can you buy Webkinz in Antarctica?

Dear Webkinz,

Will you ever:

1. Bring back the game "Dashing Dolphins" or
2. Bring back the game "Skater Kat"?

I loved these games so much, and I was devestated when they retired. When Webkinz says they're bringing back a new game, I really hopeit is one of those. Thank you!

Hello there, and thank you for such an awesome opportunity! To speak with you directly is certainly exciting!

Well my question for you concerns my ultimate WW dream item...the Room Design Trophy. (yes the chair is pretty nice too ) Lately, you've been awarding estore pets and such for the room design contests, and I'm wondering if 2011 will bring us any contests with this beautiful trophy as the grand prize. Wouldn't you love to give a few away? And a contest with no item restrictions would be so much fun!

I'm certainly a fan of good design. I think you would love my rooms if you could just get a peek at them. We could even make arrangements for you to browse my account and enjoy them for yourself. I think you would agree that a trophy would be right at home with my other prized possessions. (you could even drop a trophy into my dock, and I wouldn't tell a soul about it...LOL)

So, are there any trophies in store for us in the near future? I really hope so. In the meantime, I'll keep my creative juices flowing, just in case.

Also, I'm a big fan of the Academy. I apologize if this question has already been presented...I haven't had the time to read through this entire thread. At some point, will you consider retiring some of the Academy prizes, or introducing some new, interactive ones?

Oh, and one more thing. You may have gotten this question already, but I'm dying to know...Do you have a real Director's Chair in your office? Does it look at all like the trophy?

Thanks for taking the time to consider our questions.
