Yesterday, I sent in my proxy vote for my townhouse (since I'm not always there) to vote YES to turn a basketball court in the community (townhouse community) into a dog park! I'm excited! There is a dog park in the town's park that is right down the road, but our own dog park for the townhouse community dogs ONLY would be wonderful!

I also spent my lunch in the Webkinz trading room trading.

I traded a planter of begonias for a Halloween chair (that is currently not sold now)

3,000 kinzcash coins for an exclusive so-mod scooter and another regular w-shop scooter

That so-mod scooter for a Totem pole (also exclusive, but retired!)

And the Science Room them television monitor (pretty friggin' rare) for ANOTHER totem pole!


I'm pretty happy with myself right now. The totem poles are IMPOSSIBLE to get (ha! I proved that wrong today) and are worth a lot in Kinz value (I'm 24 and I love this stuff....don't judge)

Successful lunch!

That would be awesome to have a dog park right there! I'd love that.

I've never tried the whole trading-thing on Webkinz. I just bought the pink dragon yesterday (SO. CUTE.) and got the elephant 1/2 price. (It was a buy-one, get the pet of the month half-off deal.) I haven't registered them online yet though.

the pink dragon is one of the more highly sought after ones - apparently ganz ran out of the fabric or something and can't make any more. Put yours in (course of course you want one for yourself) and go back to your store - buy another if they still have them. Proceed to sell on ebay in 6 months. lol

I have more webkinz than I'd like to admit and I really like some rares/pet specific items for decorating purposes. I had a lot of fun in the trading room today. I did some fair deals, and some deals where I think I made out better (or just wanted the item more, hahaha) So I'm excited! Just know the value of items when trading - exclusives are basically equal (except the totem pole, ice cream tree, rainy day window, twister in a pot, bubble blower, and the new ones - especially the outhouse) cause they're harder to find than other exclusives.

Pet Specific items are basically equal.

You can get lucky and trade two exclusives (on the higher end of the "value" scale) for a superbed.

I had gold coins for 1000 and most exclusives are "worth" 4000 so I bought one for 3000 so it was pretty fair.

haha. There's like a science to this, and I'm addicted!!

ooh what I meant to say was I have a ton of kinzcash money- so I dont mind buying rares in arte's shop for high prices, and trading them for objects that have real cash value (like the pet specific item that you need to buy the animal for) And it's harder to save up for rares than it is to buy animals...so sometimes, I luck out!

you traded halloween stuff!!!! no one has ever offered me anything halloween, i'd like trade a pet for halloween stuff, i'm kind of a fanatic lol, i'm looking forward to halloween this year just for webkinz, sad huh? lol

i have gotten a few cool things in the trading room, i guess i kinda paid the price for them but i'd rather have an elephant fountain then a spaceship, what can i say? plus the spaceship just came out so it'll be around for a while anyways, and it makes my house and pets get glitchy, the only other thing that has really excited me is the easter egg shoes i traded for a w-shop teddy bear and some cowboy boots, oh and i got a christmas nightgown on the first day, i guess i like holiday stuff...

Value sorta matters, but not really. It may be more important to you to have something of "lesser" value rather than something that is higher "value" (like the spaceship) However, the elephant fountain is also worth a lot, so that was probably fair.

yea i completely know about the value of things, actually i've learned quite a bit recently at webkinz insider, even though i hate it, they are such nazi's there, there's a bizillion rules and they act like they really have an actual space ship in their actual home and if their kid trades it by acident they'll go bankrupt and their whole family will die lol i have some pent-up anger concerning that bulletin board

I also like elubin.com - they have checklists and name suggestions for all the different types of webkinz. Check that out as well.
