Hidden Realm is the best UB Funkey place yet!

****Warning: Spoiler images below******






Looks like Mattel has topped itself again. I'm writing this just after I had a chance to explore Funkeystown after the 4.0 update to see what's new. It was so much fun just to get to Hidden Realm. I don't want to spoil anything for you, because it was oh-so-cool........so go download the update if you haven't done so already! I even enjoyed listening to the storyline.

If you do want a sneak-peak, here's some more...


The location of the new Hidden Realm portal is just past the Daydream Oasis portal. I've included an image that shows the map in the lower right corner. The large red diamond marks the spot of the portal.




Then you'll board an "airship" that flys and takes you over to the Hidden Realm





Then you're dropped off....

And the surprising news is that YOU CAN PLAY SOME GAMES! That's right, unlike the previous new zones, you don't need the new Funkeys in order to explore the zone and play a few games! We played Plink-Plank-Funk, Jade Jumble, and Sushi Showdown. The only place we couldn't enter was the Oni Dogo, you'll need a Hidden Realm Funkey to enter.

Have you reached enlightenment yet? We have! If you haven't, then explore around Hidden Realm some more.....if you need any hints, I'll post some over on the Funkey Fan Forum under "Spoilers".

Oh, and the best news of all....is that you can now sell back your furniture and stuff for coins!!!!

There's another new thing with the 4.0 update that is worth mentioning. Thanks to Ninjix for the email ~ The 4.0 update added a big sign right in front of the Funkeystown stores and the sign says most played games and most played multi-player games.

Here is my previous post where I posted some game images: UB Funkeys Hidden Realm, It's time!

Do you have any idea what stores are going to carry the Hidden Realm Funkeys? I sure would love to add this to my son's "BOX" of funkeys that I have collected for him for Christmas.

Robyn said...

No, I'm sorry, I haven't heard anything yet but I will keep you posted when we start seeing them. Your best bet right now is to start checking Toys R Us, Target, and Walmart.
One option is to order through Amazon.com (see the blog sidebar on the right), then if you see them in the stores first, I believe you can cancel your order from Amazon if it didn't ship yet. Don't quote me on that, but I've heard of someone doing that before.

I got the update but when I went to my crib I found a different gem than my stich gem. I emailed a picture to neonmaster and mabey that I think of it that cresent gem might be a hidden realm gem!(according to your last post.)

Robyn said...

Wait, Lilaq! I'll try to help you, you don't need to give up!

chris said...

Wow! Calm down. Take it easy. If your having trouble with the update go back to the post a million years ago and use my method. I just used it to get the update. IT WORKS TRUST ME!

Choji43 said...

I can't find a Dreamstate wave 2funkey either all the stores by me have are chat speed racer deuce lotus and dreamstate wave 1. Iwas thinking about quiting funkeys but I'm not

P.S What is that box and rocket ship on the side with the item bag

CP funkeys said...

Hey robyn I just got to the pard where king sids preaches to you! past the path of ???? and all the gates of ????!

CP funkeys said...

Lilaq u could of sold them no point throwing them out and you could asked for support on the ub funkeys forums www.ubfunkeys.com/forums

Cathy said...

You can play some of the games without a corresponding Funkey? Very cool! Can you get through the portal without a Hidden Realm funkey as well?

lilaq said...

IM NOT GIVING UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
on the funkeyfever site i got my gift from christmas around the world! alll i have to do is send in a package to there offices and the i get my gift and they were all dreamstate yay me!!!!

Robyn said...

Yes, Cathy, that's right! I was shocked, but it's true. You can go through the portal and explore, sell some furniture back, play 3 games, make a wish, and do more some interactive stuff. It's a very nice change from the teasers we've had before.

Robyn said...

Lilaq ~ I'm so glad to hear you're not giving up!

Roco said...

Choji43, the box holds stuff like hoodwinks and dreamcatchers and the rocket holds quests I checked cool huh?

chris said...

Ya that's the way to do it! Never giving up!

TechHunter16 said...

funkeys isnt working!!!!!!!!!
dont wory, im not giving up.but its very annoying.a popup comes up like it usually does, then it does all the radica stuff, then, still in the window, theres a funkey popup that just says "quit" on it!!!!!!

please help me

and, yes, i have flash player 9 and adobe reader.

kb said...

WE had a small update yesterday, but did not get Hidden Realm. On the map, the far bottom left corner is grayed out as if we haven't been there yet, but when we go down to that corner, there is nothing there.

Maybe soon we will be the rest of the update? I hope so!

Cathy said...

Robyn, thanks for posting about this -- that's AWESOME! My daughter loves Funkeys, but having to buy new ones just to go through a portal really bugs me. I'm so glad they've decided to handle it this way.

vromminator said...

ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG! hey Robyn thats sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cool!!
ALSO, I HAVE A QUESTION. how do you make the error message you get that tells you tall call mattel to go away? i need the updates!!!

brouf said...

Roco said...

pit272 said...

When is stitch in the graveyard for the quest i am getting Rom and when is he there i want to get the white gem and 10000 coins

Pteprocks said...

Wha? How do I sell furniture back?

guinnie said...

We have an update where the corner of the map is grayed out, but we do not have the new boat dock or the ship! Do we need to do something for these to show up?

Robyn said...

If you're not getting the updates, first make sure you're connected to the internet when you play. Then the next thing I'd ask after that is if you got the last update where you can do quests. If not, I can tell you what made it work for me.
If that's not it, then I'll start a blog post on it and we'll all figure it out together.

Oh, if you're running Vista, then remember to right click on the Funkey icon on your desktop, and click on "run as administrator" before you log in.
Let me know if you still aren't getting the updates

Robyn said...

Hey Pteprocks! It's good to see you drop in here, I missed your comments here since you've been busy on your own blog!
Maybe I used the wrong terminology, but at the Forge behind the 3rd set of gates (maybe 2nd?) you can "recycle" your stuff in exchange for coins.

pit272 said...

when does hidden realm funkeys come out is it today?

Robyn said...

They've been officially released, so now we're just waiting for the stores to stock them. My theory is that don't order more Funkeys until their current inventory sells. And I've seen lots of stocked pegs in every Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us lately! But stocked with all the ones the most of have already!!!
I'll start a "Hidden Realm Funkey watch" on here soon and we'll start reporting.
