Default BREAKING NEWS: Undersea Porthole Returns to Webkinz World

Written by FIA
Wednesday, 17 December 2008


Thank you to Webkinz Insider member mathmom2 for letting us know that the Retired Undersea Porthole has returned to Webkinz World. I was able to "wish" for one in the Wish Factory just moments ago using 10 Tokens on my personal account. Here is a picture of it being awarded.

As many of you will remember, the Undersea Porthole was officially retired by Ganz back in February of 2008. Below you can see a copy of the news article that ran in the Webkinz News announcing the retirement of the Giant Venus Flytrap, the Undersea Porthole, and the Jelly Lollypop Tree. This is almost certainly a glitch that will be corrected soon, but in the meantime, those of us who did not have a chance to pick up the Porthole when it was around the first time may be in luck.

The simple answer is "yes" it will probably affect the value. By how much depends on how long it takes Ganz to figure out their error. The WIGEV will be updated shortly.

Yeah baby!! I got mine. I've had 11 tokens waiting to decide what I wanted or to save up for one of the more expensive items. I've been wanting a porthole badly for a while. I wonder how long this will last.
Thanks Mathmom2 for finding this and to WI for breaking the news.

Ohhh! I don't think it's a glitch! The porthole is now listed among the exclusives in the list on the main page of the W-shop. It's right there next to the Geode, the Traffic Light, the Vortex... when you open the W-Shop, the list of exclusives, next to "Pet of the Month" and "Sell".

I just wished for it. I don't think it's a glitch, either. It makes sense that they would bring it back out of all the retired exclusives because of the underwater rooms.
