Default BREAKING NEWS: The Return of the Undersea Porthole

Written by FIA
Thursday, 18 December 2008


The return of the Undersea Porthole to Webkinz World late yesterday has caught the entire Webkinz community off guard. Back in February, the Webkinz News said:

Previously, in November of 2007, when answering a question in an official interview with Webkinz Insider about retired Webkinz, the Creative Director of Webkinz said:

At this point, we can assume that the "retired is retired" statement only applies to Webkinz and does not apply to virtual items in Webkinz World.

Webkinz Insider member Funsilly got the following statement from a Customer Service Supervisor at Webkinz:

At this point, we are not certain how a "glitch" gets an official announcement in the Webkinz News, or why it took the programmers at Ganz nearly ten months to "correct" it. The bottom line is that the Undersea Porthole has returned, and everyone will be keeping a cautious look out for more "officially retired" items that could come back some day.

Wow! So that "Glitch" too really long to fix since it wasn't "retired".. LOL

I bet the Cheeky Dog isn't really "retired" either.. that was a "glitch" too

Oh, Kelly..that is TOO funny
I have to agree, if they can bring the Undersea PortHole out of Retirement, what is stopping them from bringing out the 'virtual' pets. I do like this Exclusive, though. I athink I am going to make a room with aquarium windows in it...or I will put them in my Below Decks w/ Captain's Quarter's rooms...

I'm a bit angry at Ganz, they said it being retired was a glitch. Is it a glitch that they "accidentally" typed it in the new? The "accidentally" put it in the pic of retired items next to the fly trap? What the heck Ganz!
