Just received December week 2 shipping notice!
Received my Topps shipping notice for Week 2 last night, and then the FedEx notice today. It’s always been the other way around for all my other orders. Not sure if this is good or bad sign for delivery schedules
But did receive Nov week 4 and Dec week 1 today, a couple days early.

December week 4 is up.

No guest artist or wonky, but instead a Thank You Wacky Packages wrapper card

We can handle a 2 week hiatus.

I hope in Feb. 2021 the Wacky Packages Weekly Series will feature Valentine's Day related Wackys.

All I can tell you is that at least 2 gag writers have industriously submitted several Valentine's-ish roughs to the powers that be. Let's see if any of them fly!

Need a guest artist for December Week 2-Slippi.  I have multiple Wonky Packages for Trade.   Please let me know if anyone wants to make a trade. Thanks.

The artwork for December Week 4 is great - but I had no idea what the "Sorta Slo Flamingo" was all about.  So I looked it up and found this.  How crazy is this for a toy?

That’s amazing, I had no idea.  What kid wouldn’t want to see this bird in action lol.

Reminds me of those Christmas novelty toys from several years back, those plastic reindeer that poop out chocolate jellybeans.  The flamingo takes it to a new level.

I just don't get the pooping fascination.  I guess the kids love it.  We bought our grandkids Squeaky the balloon dog for Christmas, and he electronically pees or poops after you fill him with air.

It wouldn't sell as well if they included a scent pack to mix in.

According to this commercial, this flamingo recycles his poop.  You're supposed to feed it to him after he craps.  I once saw a bird in Australia that did this sort of thing (without the toilet, though) - it's intestines are unable to digest its food in the first go around.

Right, a couple weeks off (unlike GPK, which is churning along through the holidays)

A break is truly appreciated.  Maybe they can get us the rest of the December sets before starting the 2021 sets.

December week 4 sales:  658, to close out the year.

We’ll see what 2021 brings us starting next week.

Same!
There’s a chance we may get all of December before January starts next week

It's slated to return next week.

There could be only 3 weeks of January 2021 Wacky Packages entries.

Regarding pooping toys: In 2019-2020 we had The Hangrees which featured Wacky Package-ish takes on food products poop style.

3 weeks would be an odd number to have.
Maybe we are in for a change and something different.
Maybe Neil or Dave can start a new thread for 2021.

I got two shipping notices for Week 4.  I hope I didn't accidentally order two sets.  Guess we'll find out.

I am beyond upset.  I had decided to spring for 40 sets of December Week 4 because of the special "Thank You" Wrapper card, but looking at my orders just now, there's nothing.  Perhaps this is a sign to stop buying these completely.  And, at least I saved a ton of money.

Maybe I'll finish out 2020 if someone here can sell/trade me two Week 4 base sets and Wrapper cards.

Pat, if I receive my orders, and you still want, I'll be happy to do so!

Thanks so much!  Someone else has already offered, and also suggested I wait and see, as it could simply have something to do with my Topps account.  Sure enough, I found an invoice from 12/28 for 20 sets (I was waffling between 20 and 40).  Seems it just didn't get linked to my Topps account.
