    I don’t know how to request someone to be my friend! I feel lame.

    Nevermind…I guess you can’t add her as a friend, lol.

    February 1, 2008 6:14 pm

    I also don’t know how to use open chat (where you get to say whatever you want). Anyone know how to fix that? It won’t let me use the [select] option.

  5. buildabearvilleblog permalink
    February 1, 2008 6:44 pm

    Sammi you have to have a furry friend without the welcome pass to enable open chat, also it was in the set up options when i first registered for me, i don’t know how to go in and change it though.

    weird – i was talking to JenniferLoveable14!! I thought it was you, then you showed up JenniferLoveable!

  6. hollybear37 permalink
    February 1, 2008 6:55 pm

    I think it is under options where you can change to type chat.

  7. February 2, 2008 12:03 am

    No luck with the ground hog. It probably won’t show for a few hours, afterall, nobody knows yet XD They report at like, what, 5AM?

    February 2, 2008 8:41 am

    Hmm…that’s strange about the chat. I registered with an actual bear I bought at BABW, and I have three others without the welcome pass.

    If you’re ever interested you can learn a lot about Webkinz at (WI). Webkinz were the first internet pet and have a huge following.

    There’s also Kookeys that you can learn about at WI’s sister site (VPI). Soon VPI will be adding info about other virtual pets, maybe Club Penguin but we’re not sure yet.

    Links are on my blogroll.

    Yea, I just noticed that. Is Maxine still gonna have a b-day?

  15. FreyaFullOfHugs permalink
    February 26, 2008 9:19 pm

    Oh yeah, ’cause leap day is before Maxine’s birthday!

  16. February 28, 2008 4:42 pm

    Just heard from a guide that clubs will come to BABV eventually.

    March 2, 2008 7:36 am

    I was thinking, that today at 5:00pm anyone who wants to can help be in a show that I created in the pawforming arts center. It’s called the “Emoticon Show”. What we do is we do all these normal and special emoticons. People who don’t have special emoticons can use normal ones.

    Who: Anyone who says they want to be in it.
    What: A emoticon show.
    Where: Performing Arts Center.
    When: 5:00 PM
    Why: So we can have fun!
    How: just dance and start clicking

  18. kitten1462 permalink
    March 2, 2008 7:41 am

    Sorry, forgot to add you should post your BABV username and that you want to come so I know your coming. It will be in bear boluvard. If it’s full check your friends and see if there in Bear boluvard, so you can get in.

    Sorry, I also forgot to add that when the show is over there will be an after party at my cub condo.

    Hello guys,
    I am Briadiva3 will be there.

    Oh and our BABW party was a blast. We got
    playful polar bear, trekkin turtle, Lucky for you teddy, triceratop, husky, and the rainbow pink pawsom bunny (I think that is the name)
    we had fun putting all the cool outfits on. All that is left is going through the quests:)

    I just saw a guide and he told me to wear the bunny ears on Saturday. He said it is a special event “The bunny ear day”.

  26. FreyaFullOfHugs permalink
    March 4, 2008 7:33 am

    That’s great! We should all meet up and wear our ears or tails. Let’s wear all the same clothes too – those cheerleaders at the emoticon show looked pretty cool all dressed alike.

    What should we wear?

  27. sarahbearish<3 permalink
    March 4, 2008 2:36 pm

    what if we all did skirts with the t-shirt that has the three flower on the side with converse(everyones clothes in a in a different color but matches the bunny ears)

  28. sarahbearish<3 permalink
    March 5, 2008 9:26 am

    or we could wear capris or cargo pants with it if we want…

  29. princessbunny permalink
    March 5, 2008 12:56 pm

    How about wearing an all pink jogging suit
    light pink like the ears or all yellow (something eastery LOL ). I will probably have to borrow the ears from my son 😦 cause the leopard at the end of the quest just gave me 500bearbills 😦 no bunny ears. I don’t know why?????

    aaaaaah strawberry you are going to look so cute can’t wait to see you. Sorry about the game, my son kept on getting stuck on his quest LOL and I had to run every time to the rescue LOL cute game though 🙂

  32. March 5, 2008 3:16 pm

    New events are coming.
    Tomorrow is Maxine’s Birthday, so we may want to try a “Find Maxine” thing like we did with the Heroes, she’ll have gifts again afterall, plus a special hat from Bearemy and we can buy a special shirt from the boutique.

    New clothes and furniture come out on the 14th as well and if you make a purchase of 15 dollars or more on the 14th to the 31st will get you exclusive access to the Beach where you get to beat a celebrity and get a special item from him.

    The Pawsome Peanuts Quest starts tomorrow and ends the 14th…

    And the Pot o’ Gold Hunt starts on the 11th. The Fishing game comes out the 12th.

    Only one code per account 😦 I asked for an extra one last night at the store so I could get on and she gave me one extra. I think it depends on the person working there, it doesn’t hurt to ask for extras!!

    Hi, has anyone seen the new “pawsitivley green center” yet?

  44. jenniferspaws permalink
    April 1, 2008 12:46 pm

    I have seen the center. It asks you to find five objects. They are in different places for each person! I am still looking for all five!Also, when I was logged on as my daughter, I found a Black Lab in Paw Park and he asked me to go on a quest to find five black lab dogs throughout BABV. Now he doesn’t appear…anyone know why? My mom, sister, etc can not find him either…

  45. jenniferspaws permalink
    April 1, 2008 2:05 pm

    Maybe they were testing it? I logged back on as my daughter again and the dog was gone…when I looked in her PDA it was no longer listed as being an active quest. Anyone else experience this?

  46. sophiesosweet permalink

    Hi! How do I become part of this blog? I was also wondering, if I purchased the tropical Kitty, will I be able to register as a furry friend… or is it more so of a novelty item? Anyway, I really enjoy this blog, I was so lost when I first started off in BABV but your blog helps alot. Thanks for having it!!!

  58. May 20, 2008 4:16 am

    Good morning bsgirl, You should first take a look at the rules on the about page. Click on the home tab at the top of the page to view all the front page current posts, there is some info about Hello Kitty there and most of your questions should be answered in that post, read through the comments and post more comments or questions if you like on any of the posts.

  59. bsgirl0722 permalink
    May 20, 2008 2:18 pm

    Good Morning Freya, I am glad to know that it is quite imperative to be nice while posting and for it to be a safe environment here…(I don’t really see that too often on the internet). About the Hello Kitty question as posted in “57”, I actually contacted my local BABW and asked.. they said that Tropical Hello Kitty could not be registered as a furry friend on BABV because it is a licensed product (just a little FYI for the people who are fairly new to BABW and BABV like myself and didn’t know). Anyways, thanks for letting me be part of this blog.. Have a great day!!!

    I finally met Shea on Saturday and got Mercer’s emoticon. I saw them in either “Clouds” or “Cubby” den, but it was purely luck that I met them cause I was just moving around different dens. I hope that you all get to meet her cause it was pretty cool!

    You’re welcome melodypaws. 🙂 Yeah I thought that it would be something different too. I’m happy though because I missed Shea back in March.

    I can’t wait for all the cool stuff to come out later today cause I just got my sweatband from Bearemy!!! OOOH yay all the excitement! 🙂
