BREAKING NEWS: 2008 Spring Gifts Revealed!
Due to a glitch with the 2007 Spring Gift Boxes, some of our members were able to get a sneak peek at the 2008 Spring Gifts. We're not exactly sure why this is happening, but it appears that every 2007 Spring Gift Box that has been opened since the maintenance on Thursday morning has contained the new 2008 gift items.
Because of this, we are able to report to you that this year's Gift Box will contain Chocolate Eggs, a Tulip Planter, and Spring Celebration Shoes!
The Chocolate Eggs also made an appearance in the 2006 and 2007 Gift Boxes and are the prize being awarded during the current Spring Fest celebration. The Spring Celebration Shoes are a brand new item that has never been seen in Webkinz World before! Here is a pic of Uppies' Polar Bear, Nick, sporting the 2008 shoes as well as the 2007 Fuzzy Pink Bunny Ears. Be Careful Nick, those are eggshells!
We don't yet know if this change to the 2007 Gift Boxes was an intentional move by Ganz, or if it was a simply a programming mistake. Based on member reports, this is the only past holiday box that has been affected. Members who still have these boxes in their docks may want to hang on to them until this is sorted out. As soon as we learn more, we will be sure to let you know.
Thank you to MissGnomie for bringing this story to my attention.
