Default New Zumbuddy activities and furniture

A new front page story has been added:

New Zumbuddy activities and furniture

A new video in Webkinz World has revealed a purpose behind the Zumbuddy Babysitting Contest last weekend.

Now we can hold interactive Zumbuddy parties in our Zum rooms with an additional game to play. When the party bar is full, click on it and start the party. Pop the balloons to get awesome zummies to buy the NEW furniture that is available for your Zums or furniture in your pet's room. Your babysitting task is finished when all of your Zums fall asleep.

To find more information on Zumbuddies, head over to the WIki and read all about them.
Click the image to open in full size.

Here is the New furniture that is available in the Zum Shop for your Zumbuddies:
Zippy Zum Dining Table, Zippy Zum Dining Chair, Zippy Toy Chest, Zippy Statue, Planter and Zippy Zum Portrait.

LOL, I found that if you spell most words correctly the translator does not kick in so much
Anyway, I would also like to tell everyone that the Zumbuddies' foods are now marked with a Lemon (for sour) A pepper (for spicy) a lollipop (for sweet) and a green thing for salty (sorry, it just really defies description)

Default Re: New Zumbuddy activities and furniture

I have to say, I just played with my little zumbuddy and I can't say that I love these new changes too much. I preferred the voice he had before and the ability to tickle him when I wanted to, now I have to wait for him to blush before I can tickle him. I also have to scrub him clean from time to time which is kind of cute. The magic trick thing is cute too; a magician hat pops over his head you click on it and trace an outline then he does a magic trick. The trick I had was him spinning like a little tornado. Then after a while you get a party and get to pop two balloons, I managed to get two parties, on the first I received 1 blue zummy, 1 pink zummy and 1 yellow zummy, for the second party all I received was one purple zummy. Then I received the message that my zumbuddy was now taking a nap and not to worry I would be able to play with him again tomorrow. So now it seems I can't play with him again today.

So overall, I'm not a big fan of these improvements.

Just my two cents worth.

Hope others enjoy it more than I did!

Have a fabulous day everyone!

That's interesting. Once it starts to nap, you can't play with it! Does that mean you would have to have more then one to continue to play? Don't get it! Not going to buy another one. We didn't care to play with the one we have.

I was very excited when I saw there were changes. After playing, I'm very unhappy. Can't tickle to get them moving when they "stall". Less zummie drops when playing, less zummies dropped per party.

Haven't gotten the "asleep until tomorrow" yet but, if they really have changed our access to the zumbuddy game from full time to limited, I will have a major problem with that. They sold $13 plushies with full time game access as a benefit. If they're trying to change that retroactively to gouge more sales out of us, then I think that would need to be addressed with the CBBB and/or the Canadian Ministry that get the referrals when the CBBB gets nowhere with [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate].

Default Re: New Zumbuddy activities and furniture

I am not happy with the new changes either. A couple things are good though:

The good:

1. Scrubbing the "dirty" [notranslate]zum[/notranslate] is cute.

2. The magic tricks are cute: tornado, music, make sparkles, make a rainbow (my computer screen is getting fingerprints all over it though as that is the only way I can seem to retrace the shapes).

3. I like that you don't have to wait for all the zums to be happy to have a party.

4. The interactive pop a balloon feature for the party is cute. You get to pop 2 balloons for each [notranslate]zum[/notranslate] that is ready to have a party.

The bad:

1. I liked that you were guaranteed a couple of blue zummies once you got to have a party. Some balloons have no zummies, some have 1, some have 2. They seem to be random.

2. I do not like that the zums go to sleep and can't be played with until the next day. Limiting how long you can play is just terrible in my opinion. My dd with 3 zums: I played on hers for only about 15 minutes, earned 13 blue zummies and now she can't play after school because they are all asleep.

3. The zums seem to be pickier than ever about what they will eat/play with. I used to be able to drop in random toys/food and more times than not they would take it. Today, even dropping random stuff into a room of 5 zums, most of it went to waste. This will make it take longer to earn zummies and will waste kinzcash. Them not taking random stuff would be fine if they asked for stuff more often but it didn't seem like they were asking for toys/food very often at all.

4. They really need to change either: the frequency that the blue zummies are awarded or lower the trade in values of the blue zummies to get the prizes. The update did not address the shortage of blue zummies to the other colors.

That is my 2 cents on the changes...
