Bin Mystery: Following the Trail

Hello Bin Weevils!

Here’s the Friday post from the Bin Weevils What’s New Blog

Scribbles_Missing_Fisherman_2

Scribbles was last spotted at the Club Fling VIP party before he mysteriously vanished! He asked Posh to look after his Bin Pet, then got Flam to give him a lift to Mulch Island! But where did he go next?

Tink and Clott asked Flam to fly them to the island too, and drop them off at the exact spot where she left Scribbles. “This part of Mulch Island is dangerous territory, but we’re SWS agents,” said Tink. “It’s our duty to investigate!”

When the three of them landed on the beach, Tink and Clott looked around cautiously.

“Look! There’s a boat over there! It could be the WEB!” warned Tink in a whisper. “Stay alert, everyone!”

“Stay alert for what?” said a voice from nearby, making all three of them jump. It was Blem, sitting on a large rock and calmly casting a fishing line into the sea.  “That’s just my little old boat, nothing to worry about!”

“You gave us a fright, Blem!” squealed Clott. “Yikes! We’re looking for Scribbles. He’s missing!”

“Scribbles the reporter?” said Blem. “I’ve seen him. He needed a ride to the next island over, so I took him there in the boat.  I think he was searching for something…”

No More What’s New Blog Posts!

Hello Bin Weevils!

Here I am, sitting at the magazine office. Do you like my new colour?

  Here I am, sitting at the magazine office. Do you like my new colour?

I have come to the decision that no more What’s New Blog posts will be posted on here except for Weevil Weekly Round-up and the Satarday post.

Authors, please check your emails for a new author schedule that has been emailed to you, thanks!

Thinking about it now, there isn’t actually any point in posting What’s New Blog posts, because people can easily just visit the Bin Weevils blog and read it.

Weevil Weekly Round-Up #221

Hello Bin Weevils!

Here’s what’s new from the Bin Weevils What’s New Blog:

WW_NewDigital_221

Greetings, readers! It’s Scribbles here with your big Friday scoop! That’s right, it’s my Weevil Weekly Round-Up post, and I’ve got some major news this week. Read on!

Write me your comments all week long for a chance to be featured in the next Weevil Weekly Round-Up, and I’ll send you a shiny gold Scribbles Trophy for your nest if I choose your comment.  You can leave your thoughts on all What’s New Blog posts that ask for your comments!

WW_221_Fling_clubFling

It’s Dance Fever Month and Fling is giving away a new gift every Friday! I caught up with Fling for a quick-fire interview as he dashed off to a dance lesson!

Scribbles: Hi, Fling! Everyone’s excited about Dance Fever Month – what made you decide to give away a whole bunch of free items?

Fling: I wanted everyone to find their groove and dance! Building a Dance Fever room in your nest means that even when you don’t feel like going out, you still have the perfect place to hold your own dance party. Bin Pets love it, too!

Scribbles: Yeah! My Bin Pet, Doodle, absolutely loves to dance.  Have you got any other big plans for Dance Fever Month?  Rigg’s been spotted at Club Fling, which must mean you’re up to something!

WW_221_TinkClott_clubFling

Fling: I’ve got some massive plans, in fact! And yes, Rigg is doing a bit of construction for me, for a very special event. There’s just one problem…we’re waiting for an important delivery, but it’s gone missing!  I should never have trusted Tink and Clott to go pick it up. Who knows where they’ve dropped it!

Scribbles: Oh, dear. I hope you find it soon!  I’ll let you go now, I hear you’re going to a dance lesson. But I can’t believe that the Bin’s best-ever dancer needs a lesson!

Fling: Hahaha! The lesson’s not for me – I’m the one giving the lesson! She might be the DJ with the most brilliant beats, but I’m still trying to teach Slam how to dance…wish me luck!

Scribbles: Good luck, Fling! And good luck finding your missing delivery!

WW_PFAD_221

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have your very own Bin Pet? If want to check out the fun for yourself before you decide whether you want to adopt your own pet, drop in and visit Dott at the Bin Pet Shop! With Pet-for-a-Day, you can borrow a Bin Pet for a whole day!  Learn about pet training, feed and care for your pet, and play games together at Bin Pets Paradise.

My Bin Pet, Doodle, is totally awesome. I think everybody should try a day with a Bin Pet!  It’s completely free and you don’t need to be a Bin Tycoon, so pop over to the Bin Pet Shop and try out a Bin Pet this weekend!

WW_221_NI_RoomTip

The Nest Inspector’s first Nestige item, the Deluxe Aquarium, was the top-selling item of the week at Nestco!

Nest Inspector suggests: “Start with a centrepiece item to inspire your room. In this case, I used the Deluxe Aquarium.  This item works perfectly with an Under the Sea theme, but it’s equally at home in an icy cave that picks up the nice blues in the water!”

Look out for the next Nestige item coming soon – I’ll have the scoop for you next week!

Pssst! Want to rock the Dance Fever fashion?  Hem’s been hard at work crafting the perfect hat to celebrate Dance Fever Month. The Disco Ball Hat is coming soon to Hem’s Hats at Dosh’s Palace.

Don’t forget that the Level-Free Hat Sale is still on, so if you’ve had your eye on a hip hat, now’s the time to pick it off the shelf!

WW211_FanComments

I asked my readers to share their theories about the Mysterious Crate! Here are a few of my favourites:

modo3134: I haven’t seen any clues of what it is or who delivered it, but I’m hoping it’s full of XP and Mulch!

podolski100: It might be a box from the Thuggs to say sorry for what they have done!

jinny125: I knew something was wrong when I heard a helicopter in the Bin and my Bin Pet went all strange – you know pets pick up scents of mystery things! Maybe she knows Weevil X is lurking around in the Mall!

chopseycharlie2: Maybe it will be a Super Antenna because some people probably want it but could not do the quest!

cobra1317: I think it’s a portal to the outside of the Bin! Wow, if it was, you could go to other Bins or explore, but I might get a bit homesick!

Apatosaurus: Me and my pet have been woken by helicopters flying over us! I visited Nestco to buy some ultra-cool nest items and I saw some familiar faces: Digg, Trigg and Dosh! Maybe it’s a new Nestige item!

I’m sure we’ll get to the bottom of this with all my weevily reporters on the case!

Weevil Weekly Round-Up #216

Happy Christmas Weevils!

Here’s what’s new from the Bin Weevils What’s New Blog:

WW_NewDigital_216_v1

What a fantastic Friday! Christmas is almost here and everyone’s in a festive mood.  And now it’s time for me, Scribbles, to bring you your Weevil Weekly Round-Up post!  Every week, I’ll be blogging the top stories from the Binscape with my helpers – that’s right, YOU, my team of rockin’ reporters!

If your comment gets featured in the Weevil Weekly Round-Up I’ll send you a shiny gold Scribbles Trophy for your nest.  You can leave your comments on the What’s New Blog posts all week long to let me know what you’re thinking!

GAMS_INTERVIEW_title_216

Last week, I asked for your help to prepare for my big interview with the SWS chief, Gam!  I asked him some massive questions about the Bin’s history, the Great Bin War, and the strange relics on Mulch Island. Here’s what he had to say!

Gam, what was the first mission you ever had to do?

Once, when I was still very small, I delivered a note to an important commander. Turns out it was just letting him know that his favourite beans on toast were in the mess tent! Later, when I became a soldier, I took on many MUCH more dangerous missions. But I never forgot those beans, and how proud I was do my duty and serve others.

GAMS_INTERVIEW_pagebreak1_216

How did spiders play a part in the Great Bin War?

Spiders were the cause of the Great Bin War! They started it, and the trouble began when they invaded our peaceful lands from beyond the mountains.  Just think, everything you see could be covered in spiderwebs if we hadn’t stopped them.

Did you see many strange relics and ancient stones during the Great Bin War?

Yes, I certainly did. We had a secret base in the jungle, at the ancient site where the Bin Pet Temple stands. We saw many strange things in the temple.  It’s a very odd building, and the ancients who built it had a magic about them that hasn’t fully left the place.

GAMS_INTERVIEW_pagebreak3_216

Gam, have you ever been outside the Binscape?

It’s been a very long time since a Bin Weevil left these lands. There were some who left during the Great Bin War, but where they went to remains a mystery.

Is Octeelia the only spider that is a WEB member, or are there more?

After the Great Bin War, when the spiders were defeated, we didn’t see one again in the Binscape until Octeelia and the WEB arrived.  We have no idea how many are still out there now… it’s perhaps best not to think about it, and leave those matters to the SWS.  But I’ll tell you this – we need all the agents we can get. Nothing is certain.

Thanks, Gam! And a big thank you to all my reporters for helping me with these questions!

You can read more about Gam’s time in the Great Bin War inside Bin Weevils Mag Issue #21, out now, and Issue #22, coming soon!

Bin Pets Paradise is packed with pets looking to get their style on! These readers wrote to me about their pet’s fashion sense, and I’ve got to say, they all sound super-stylish!

elle03: My Bin Pet, Lisa, likes exploring, dressing up, having her picture taken and opening pressies. She’s like a fashion model! She won’t stop bugging me about opening presents!

Bugmon: My Bin Pet is now very fit and has a new style from the amazing Bin Pet Changer – he looks fabulous! He now has his own personal profile, which is epic. What more could my pet want!? He surely is lucky to have me as his owner.

 

zuzanna7075: My Bin Pet, Binbin, really loves the pink bow, purple tutu and lipstick. I hope there will be more great stuff because the Bin Pets Paradise is so great! It has really spoiled my Bin Pet.

missprety14: My Bin Pet, Sugar, loves the accessories. Her favourite accessory is the purple microphone because she loves to listen and sing to Bin Pet tunes! My Bin Pet and I would like to see a music stage background so she could be a REAL rock star!

diavlogold59: I bought the tulip which I put by Lilly’s arms to make it look like she has done gardening! Lilly loves the gym and I love the Bin Pet changer. I have made a great new look for Lilly that I didn’t think of when I adopted her!

What’s your favourite thing about Christmas in the Binscape? Did you get your Bin Pet a present? How are you decorating your nest for the holidays?

Tell me about your weevily holiday plans in the comments and I’ll print some next week!

Weevil Weekly Round-Up #215

Happy Christmas Weevils!

Here’s what’s new from the Bin Weevils What’s New Blog:

WW_NewDigital_215

Bin-tastic, it’s Friday! That means it’s time for me, Scribbles, to bring you your Weevil Weekly Round-Up post!  Every week, I’ll be blogging the top stories from the Binscape with a little help from YOU, my ace reporting team!

If your comment gets featured in the Weevil Weekly Round-Up I’ll send you a shiny gold Scribbles Trophy for your nest.  You can leave your comments on the What’s New Blog posts all week long to let me know what you’re thinking!

xmas_items_comingsoon_215

Have you got the holiday spirit? Have you decked every nest room in tinsel, baubles and ribbon? I can hardly find a spot for another sprig of holly, but a sneak peek at the new items coming soon has given my Christmas cheer a super boost.

Starting next week, Bing’s Christmas Shop will have an all-new Whimsical Christmas Tree, a Candy Cane Throne and more. I know what’s on my wish list!

.BPP_outnow_215

At last, the day all the Bin Pets were waiting for has arrived! No, it’s not Christmas yet…it’s the grand opening of Bin Pets Paradise! The all-new area opened its doors this week and it is PACKED with excited pets. Have you popped by with your pet to see all the fun stuff you can do?

I’ve heard word from Dott that there are more Bin Pet games coming soon, and I’ve just got to get the scoop! I know I can count on my Bin Pet, Doodle, to track down the secret info… so stay tuned next week for more news.  I think every Bin Pet is going to have the best Christmas ever!

petstyle_215

Speaking of Doodle, he’s gone absolutely mad for all the accessories in the PetStyle Studio! The Rock ‘n’ Roll wig is his favourite – he keeps asking me to take more photos of him wearing it. He also loves the electric guitar.

Did you know that you can buy a real Bin Pet Guitar decoration for your nest in the Bin Pet shop?  Yup, I got him that too. I just can’t help spoiling him – but he’s such a good Bin Pet, he definitely deserves it. He learned a new juggling trick this week and I’m extremely proud!

I love to wander around the Binscape saying hello to my fans, and I always get a few pics to remember the occasion. Check out all the cool pets & Bin Weevils I met at Bin Pets Paradise!

I asked you all to help me prepare for my big interview with Gam, and you had some great ideas for questions! Here’s what some of my weevily reporters wanted to know. I hope I’ll have the answers for you next week!

rosieroo361: I would ask Gam: What was the first mission you ever had to do, and how did you do it?

madpet: I know that spiders were seen during the Great Bin War, but I really want to know how they played a part in it.

robbotboy: Do you remember going past any strange relics and ancient stones during the Great Bin War?

Lilygaga: I would ask Gam: Have you ever been out of the Binscape, and what  happened?

Skinny777: Is Octeelia the only spider that is a WEB member, or are there more?

I can’t wait to pick Gam’s brain about the past again. If you want to know more about Bin history, don’t forget to check out my exclusive in Bin Weevils Mag #21. Inside, Gam reveals some of the secrets he discovered during the Great Bin War!

See you at Bin Pets Paradise, and keep commenting on the What’s New Blog for your next chance to get your comments featured!
