Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!


 
In a surprise move, Ganz has retired the Sweets N Treats Theme from the W Shop in Webkinz World, and moved it to the Curio Shop! Unlike other recent theme retirements, there was no advance warning of this move. The items are now appearing for sale in the Curio Shop on an irregular basis as Arte's Favorites, and at prices that vary from 20% over the W Shop price, to special sale prices as low as 40% from the original price. These items will now also appear in the Zum Challenges.
 
In the past when retiring a theme to the Curio Shop, Ganz has usually reserved one or two items that are completely removed from circulation and never available again. It remains to be seen which Sweets N Treats item, if any, will be retired forever.
 
On the other hand, one chair from this theme, the Be Mine Chair, is still available in the W Shop.
 
The Sweets N Treats Theme was first introduced to the W Shop in February 2007.

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Thanks for the info .My favorite them of all time
Reminded me of Candyland

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Thanks for the information. When we first came to WW my dd bought tons of the ice cream sandwich refrigerators. I am glad that we have a surplus of these, at least.

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

I love this theme too!
I hope they make it all available in the curio shop!

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

it reminds me of that canyland boardgame so I made a caandyland thememed board game room

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Ohh...thanks for the update. Too bad, this was such a cute theme. Always reminded me of CandyLand.

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

This was also one of my favorite themes of all time.

I hope they release another theme similar to this one, hopefully revamped and cooler and more modern.

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Good thing. Nearly have all the items!

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

WIsh I hadn't sold so much of theme. :c

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

I didn't ev.en realize it was retired when I lokked at themes in the Wshop.

I made a Candyland themed restaurant and used a bunch of the ribbon candy chairs, so I at least have some of them to go along with my tables.

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Thank you for the information! I probably wouldn't have noticed until I went to go buy something from the theme(which I'll be doing soon since I'm making a candy room/factory)
I guess I better start looking at the Curio Shop.

It really stinks that they retired it from the w-shop. No warning or anything. . .

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Wish Ganz had forewarned us! I would have stocked up on this theme!

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Oh, that's sad! I understand why Ganz retires themes from time to time, but I really wish they would let us know a week or so before they retire it. It would be nice if we had a chance to buy some of, if not all, of the items, if we wanted to. I have a few pieces from this theme and have always thought it was so cute. Hopefully the pieces will show up in the Curio Shop.

Not happy they did not tell us that they would going to do that.

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Yeah I am not happy either!

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

I am not happy either. I noticed some of the items in Curio Shop this morning and thought it odd. Now I know why. I do have several rooms of this theme throughout my accounts but no extras. I will be watching out for them to buy from Arte.
Thanks for the notice!!

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Wow that's a shocker!!! Well I don't have much for this room! I guess it's still around threw the curio shop, I'll have to try and collect it there before the think of retiring something!!!
Thanks for the info on this!!!

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Awwww! I love that theme. Well at lease its in the curio shop now.

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

I have Carte Blanche in NAMING MY ROOMS; I have not even noticed the loss of this theme!
Perhaps that was the Ganz plan with this?

we do need a fainting sprite

Thanks sooo much WebberLily for this info!

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

Perhaps the person who thought to notify us has moved on. Maybe the new social media person will let us know about things like this. It was definitely good customer relations to give us warnings before things were removed.

I'll have to grab some spares from the Curio Shop. I hope one of the things we'll still see is the Gingerbread TV. I loved how many different ways I could use that in decorating Christmas rooms.

Re: Sweets N Treats Theme Retires From W Shop!

I didn't really like this theme, but my siblings have it all, so we're good there.
