Can someone confirm if you still hug smashed Teddy Bears? --Hyperchao 02:58, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
Smashed Teddy Bears are crafting items. They are in your crafting inventory. No option to hug. There was apparently a bug though in that even if you smash your Teddy Bear, your Teddy Bear remained on the Misc tab, and that's how people could get multiple smashed and/or regular Teddy Bears. -- Camomiletea 17:13, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Categorize items like this

Since there are now more and more items like this one (Teddy Bear, Santa Bear, Slap Cat, Toy Ronza Ship); I think we need a category for them or a single page on which all could be listed... Don't know what would be a good name. -- Camomiletea 00:27, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Flavour/Flavor Items. There's a number of them, most of the items sold in the Festive Gift Shoppe are just there for flavour and not for crafting, even if they do fall under crafting items. It's certainly up for more discussion though. -- Grexx 10:30, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Novelty Collectables. This is from the Developers in the last minute Christmas shopping news post. "All the new items are entirely novelty collectables" -- Ralphminer 12:30, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
I would recommend using a category rather than a page - since a hunter does not need to compare them. -- Ralphminer 12:32, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
I think it would be good if it were centralized like Crafting Items and Cheese, which makes it easy to keep track of, as well as clearing any confusion there might be about the usage of these items. There are 2 categories at the moment, clickables and non-clickables. We could probably create a new article Novelty Collectables and point the various items there, including Gold Bricks etc. One look and players will know that the items have no practical usage. If we do decide on Novelty Collectables, we'll need to remember a redirect on Novelty Collectibles, as both are acceptable variants. -- Grexx 17:38, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Do we know that they are all novelty collectibles though? I know that the last wave of holiday gifts were confirmed to be useless in terms of crafting, but as far as I'm aware that's the only info we have. Are we sure, for instance, that the Teddy Bear is useless? -- Doogleface 18:45, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Regardless of the usefulness of the item, most of them certainly qualify as Novelty Collectables. A remark can be easily made about the fact that whether it works or not is unknown, and best left to the player's imagination. One way around this is to have another Novelty Item section in Crafting Items to hold those listed as crafting ingredients, and another Novelty Collectables article to hold the items that appear under the Misc tab, ie Teddy Bear. Of course another solution is to check with Dave on that, but it'll be best to sort out any details here first. -- Grexx 19:09, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
That could work. We could sort the Novelty Collectibles article like it's done in MH inventory.. Like have sections for gifts, misc, and crafting. Also I like your idea of also putting the "craftable" items on the crafting page, with a note saying it's uncertain how they will be used. Is it ok that the novelty collectibles that are also used for crafting will appear twice- once on each page? -- Doogleface 2:22, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Created page at Novelty Collectibles (note spelling) -- Doogleface 15:58, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
