Default Trader Information: Fruity Punch Pool is NOT a Pool *UPDATE*

A new front page story has been added:

Trader Information: Fruity Punch Pool is NOT a Pool *UPDATE*

Click the image to open in full size.For the past two months we have been getting scattered reports here on Webkinz Insider from members who have been tricked in the Clubhouse by players trading the Fruity Punch Pool. As most of you know, this item is not a pool at all, and it is not very valuable. It is a decorative punch bowl that is a common prize, easily earned by watching a video on the Webkinz Newz.

Unfortunately, there are players out there in Webkinz World who take advantage of items like this to scam their fellow traders. The best way players can protect themselves against tricks like this is to know what the items they're trading for are, and how much they are worth. The fastest and easiest way to do this is to use the Webkinz Insider Gift Exchange Value Guide (WIGEV) as a reference. Have the guide open in a second window while you are trading, and you'll never be scammed again.

UPDATE (June 8): Ganz has corrected the name of this item! It is now called "Fruity Punch Bowl".

This is GREAT advice. Even I have been told that the Fruity Punch Pool is a pool.
Thank goodness for and all of their up-to-date information through the WIGEV I knew this was not a pool Thank you FIA

It's sad to think that fellow WKW users would try to trick somebody with this item.

It should be called "Fruit Punch Bowl". I think Ganz meant "bowl" the whole time. Who would want to swim in Fruity Punch anyway?

Another trader problem is how older kids trick younger kids into trading rare items for cheaper items.
