PostSubject: An end to Funkeys?? - Write a letter   Sat Jan 16, 2010 4:05 pm

One thing that may work and I thought about this when I got wind of the forum closing was maybe ALL the Funkey fans SHOULD write an letter to Mattel telling them what a great product UB Funkeys are! Tell them WHY you like them! Don't go off on them yelling at them about closing the forum or not making more funkeys or the problems people have with them, but tell them what a good product UB Funkeys are, build them up - maybe if enough of us write, they can/will go on!

I am sure we can get a mailing address posted here so we can do this. After all, if even half of the members that signed up at the other forum were to mail, it would be in the thousands. Can you imagine WHAT they would think when they got thousands of letters praising them for the funkeys??? If it were me, I would be totally AWESTRUCK!

Here are some addresses for Corporate Mattel:

Mattel, Inc.
333 Continental Boulevard
El Segundo, CA 90245-5012


Arkadium also helped on the project:

Dear Mattel:

I am a fan of your product U.B. Funkeys. They are really fun to collect and play! I have at least one of each tribe! I have been playing and collecting ever since I first found a Funkeystown starter pack in our local Wal-mart!

This game gets a 10/10 in my book! I love it! My favorite mini-game would have to be ‘Operation: Flight plan’! My favorite figure would be henchman! Favorite zone…close tie between Paradox Green and Laputta Station!

I’ve spent hours playing this game! I have every gem and almost 50 trophies! I also enjoy making “mix ’n’ match funkeys” in Microsoft paint (as above)! I can’t wait for the DC Heroes to come out!

Your fan,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am an avid fan of your UB Funkeys. I love to play the game and collecting the funkeys. As of this time I have at least 1 funkey of each tribe. I have been fortunate to find some of the other rarities of some of the tribes also along with the different UB Hubs you offer.

Just wanted to write you to let you know how very pleased I am with your UB Funkeys! My 3 boys and I love playing it. I love the retro games (reminds me of my childhood) and my boys love to explore and find things. It is the perfect game for us as a family to spend time together working on a common goal. We also enjoy visiting the UB Funkey website and going to the forum to talk with other UB Funkey fans. It is the perfect compliment to the UB Funkey game.

This game has kept us playing for hours – we need to defeat Master Lox, find out what the big red button does and overall help save Terrapinia!

Keep up the GREAT work!

An avid collector and player,

Yes it is YOM2 - I thought it would help give others some inspiration for writing their own. If others would like to share their letter - that would be great! It would help others write one of their own.

So one thing that really helps, I learned, is if you handwrite the letters then they are taken a lot more seriously and there is a much better chance that they will bring about the desired effect.
I did that with Jimmy Neutron. Very Happy
Like, if you email them, then it will probably only score 1/10 on their internal grading scale, while computer composed and printed letters only score 5/10, while handwriting scores anywhere from 9/10-10/10. Just to put it simply. Razz

I have received a response back from Mattel. Although they really don't say much about the continuation of funkeys, it does say that enthusiastic letters as such helps them to continue making great products.

I hope so. I am still encouraging others to take some time to write their own positive letter to the company. I really feel that if they got enough POSITIVE letters, it may do some good.

That's cool YOM2! At least it doesn't look like some 'form' letter for their responses...hopefully if others write they will see what a good thing they have with UB Funkeys!
