First topic message reminder :

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.

El Segundo, CA 90245-5012

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,

Here is another letter you could send to mattel:

Quote :
I just want to let you know how much I love the product Ub Funkeys. I want to thank all of you at mattel for making them. I think they are starting to get very popular, based on what I can see in stores and around the internet. I play it everyday, just hoping for another update to come,along with new funkeys. I have been playing for a while and still love the little critters. I think the chat function was a great idea, and so was the Game Creators. The designs on funkeys are so cool,and I have so many funkeys. The Games are WAY more awesome than you could find on any website.I love Ub funkeys an always will.
I hope they go on forever!


Your FUNKEYEST fan,

Ah! Bryan1-2 from TSE and also had an account on UBF although he didn't frequent there. Good idea! Let's try to get the message out to all we know. Who knows? Maybe it will help to get our beloved funkeys back cheers

Another thought on keeping funkeys going....

I think what is needed is some marathon playing of the game itself. I know that there are still some doing some game competitions which help, but maybe if we can start just playing the game again to help show that the interest is still there. As long as people are playing the game with an internet connection - it uses server bandwidth which will show them that people are still playing it even though there hasn't been any new funkeys or any updates.

What's Mattel's e-mail?
P.S. I think Ub Funkeys are alive again. I just found Bomble and Raj at a Walmart close to me. They weren't there about a month ago so I think they re-ordered them. (I'm not sure though.) cheers

The only email I am aware ATM is support@mattel.com

Try looking through the Mattel website - there could be some hidden in there that we haven't seen or already tried contacting through!

It's really too bad that UBF has ended. I suppose there's nothing we can do about it, sadly

Yeah; Sunday I asked DArkDjrios about it, and as far as I know no one has played Funkeys for quite a while.......
