I think they have limited what they did and did not bring back.

Lemony, I read this too. I really am convinced that many of the prizes listed as 'returning' are not really returning as click to win Winterfest items...and for that reason, should their values really be returned to the current click to win value if they are going to be 'rare'...??? For instance, the google ice sculpture and potted icicle tree...they are not part of WW Winterfest...which means not all WW members have access to them, as not all WW members visit the Newz site...and they have been listed as random rare prizes which you can only possibly win once a day?

I just wonder if the values of those particular items being dropped to current Winterfest click to win values is right, seeing as they really are not part of the winterfest click-to-win event...
I agree with this, the Icicle Trees are very rare and are valued now as the same as the current 'click-to-win' items, which I don't think is right.

I only caught 5 snowflakes today on server 16 and I haven't seen any since. So much for the 10 flakes limit.

As much as I think the regular schedule of flying snowflakes and the limit is a good thing, I do think the daily limit should have been left at 15 the way it was for fallfest. Although we have 293 webkinz, they are on one account and the 10 weekend limit, and especially the weekday limit of 5, limits the chance for us to get a better number of newer items. As of today we received 1 snowman cookie, 1 angel cookie, 3 popcicles, 1 snowflake face stickers, 1 snowglobe hat, 2 potted ice plants and 1 winterfest window. Not bad, at least I did get some of the new items, and not all food. Hopefully I will get the pajama bottoms tomorrow.

I've seen a snowflake every 5 minute period. Just played to full on 3 accounts (30 prizes total)
Of the prizes,
Icicle Wind Chime, Magic W Toque, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Potted Ice Flower, Roasted Chestnuts, Snow Cone, Winterfest Hoodie, Winterfest Window, Wool Scarf Jacket, Snowman Cookie (only on the Webkinz Newz)
I got all EXCEPT the Wool Scarf Jacket, Roasted Chestnuts, Magic W Toque, and Snow Cone.
The Icicle Popsicle things pop up ALL the time -- I got 3-4 on each account. I also experienced a short of the Winterfest stickers, which I only got on one account. Statistically, I should have gotten one of everything, but whatever...
I'll go on my fourth account and see if I can get a WSJ, RC, MWT, or SC...

I am steaming a bit right now at the announcement of a limit of 5 per day during the week.
Really?!?!?!
How ridiculous is it that they are limiting it to 5
I can see the limit of 15 like Fall Fest so you don't spend all day in front of a computer that some of us "dedicated" participants have been in years past.
But really 5...... I would love to know their reasoning behind this... they aren't paying extra for us catching extra
They want us on their site as much as possible so why try to make it so we don't want to be on it???!!!???!!!???!!!???

Just had to pop by to say that my little ones are LOVING this winterfest!

My son has laughed and had a wonderful time catching flakes --he said, "I missed a few, Mom, but I am catching a lot! I like knowing by my Kinz clock when to watch for them, and that they will show up."

How cool is that for positive feedback?
Way to go, big G! This mom is pleased ♥

I also think the set up is good this time. While understanding that there are alternative views, I like the 10 a day/5 a day limits and think they are healthy.
