Mass Pet Retirements Announced! *UPDATE*
Webkinz Insider members are reading about a series of pet retirements in Webkinz Newz. First, there will be a new pet retirement every weekend, starting July 27 when the Red Panda is due to retire. There will be special activities for the owners of the retiring pet, both on Saturday and Sunday. In the past, pet retirements have been marked by special Retirement Parties featuring the Count The Sailboat Game, which was very popular; but there is no guarantee that this beloved game will be returning. We will have to wait and see.
There will be a mass retirement of all pets that were Holiday, Chase or made for a retail partner such as Justice or Cracker Barrel, but these pets will not get a retirement event. No details were given about exactly which pets would be included in this retirement, or what is meant by "Chase pets".
The Signature line of Webkinz pets will be retired at the end of December 2013. Since its introduction in 2009, there has been one Signature pet every month. The last Signature pet will be an as-yet unnamed fan-favorite dog. Members will recall that the Small Signature and the Endangered Signature pet lines were retired in March 2011.
We will bring you more details as they become known. Please note that a pet retirement means that Ganz will not produce any more of these kinds of pets. Current stocks will still be sold in stores, the codes will remain effective and the pets can still be adopted.
*UPDATE* The Chase Pets to be retired are the Dodo Bird, Razzle Dazzle Dog, Cuddly Koala and Patchy Puppy.
There is a special Daily Activities on Saturday for the owners of the Red Panda, the Count the Sailboat Game. There are no Retirement Cupcakes as in previous years.
