Default Webkinz Players Ask: What Happened to Those Rare Items? *UPDATE*

A new front page story has been added:

Webkinz Players Ask: What Happened to Those Rare Items? *UPDATE*

Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.
In October and November of 2009, Ganz introduced a new Rare Theme to Webkinz World, the Palace Princess Theme. Shortly after the theme was added, all of the items showed up as additional adoption gifts. It was expected that the rare furniture would eventually show up for sale in the Curio Shop too, but over one year later, one item, the Contessa Candle Wall Sconce, has not yet been sold by Arte.

The Desert Destiny Window has a similar story. The Persian Theme was added to Webkinz World in March 2010. Just like with the Princess theme, all of the furniture items have been received by players as additional adoption gifts, but the Desert Destiny Window continues to elude players shopping at the Curio Shop. Arte has never offered this Window for sale.

Finally, we have the Delicate Swan Bed. This non-themed Rare item was last sold in the Curio Shop in March 2010. In April 2010, following a scheduled site maintenance, a rumor started that the Bed had been retired. While we don't usually deal in rumors here on Webkinz Insider, it has been almost a year since the Bed was sold in the Curio Shop, and also that long since anyone has reported receiving one as an additional adoption gift.

So, what is the true status of these three items? Are they different from the other Rares in Webkinz World, or is a strange bit of random chance at play that just makes it seem that way? All we can say for certain is, if you own one of these three items, hang on to them. There's no way to know when they will show up again.

UPDATE (Feb 17): Earlier today Ganz sent out the following information on Twitter:

The Wall Sconce wasn't set right. It will be in the rare item list starting next update. Window just hasn't shown up recently.

I'm so glad I got one of those swan beds! It is disappointing that there hasn't been a sighting of the window or the wall sconce though. Those items definitely have a place saved for them in my webkinz home. Maybe this thread will encourage ganz to say something about them, or release them into Webkinz World.

Strange coincidence but I was looking on WI rare items list today and wondered about the Contessa Wall Sconce listed as "not yet" at the curio shop. I'd really like one of those.

Have a few Swan Beds when it showed up regularly in the Curio Shop after not being available for a while. I've been playing since 2007 so it's hard to remember when that was.

The window I don't have either and would love to get it. Never been that lucky with a pet adoption.

Maybe it's Ganz' programming. Someone "forgot" to release the window and the sconce.

Thanks FIA for bring this to the front page. I have been waiting for the Persian Window and the Contessa Wall Scone to complete my themes. I hope Ganz sees this and finally releases them.

I love that window! I hope it is not going to be available only as an adoption gift. I have very bad luck with adoption gifts.

I couldn't have said it better myself. I have blank tiles on the walls in my Palace Princess and Persian theme rooms just waiting for the sconce and window to make their appearances. Without these two rare items, no one's collections are complete, and I hope we see them in the Curio Shop sooner than later now that the situation has been made a front page story.

I already sold my swan bed. Which is extra sad, because now I want one for my lamb's room.
