Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th


webkinz cheats
 
Thank you to everyone who called our attention to a new advertisement running in Webkinz World.  We now know that the rumors about an Ice Cream Tree "Replica" coming to the Ganz eStore are true.  As you may remember, the original Ice Cream Tree was retired as an Exclusive item in May 2008.  
 
eStore "Replicas" are identical to the originals in every way except that they cannot be sent via KinzPost, and they have the word "replica" in their names.  The Ice Cream Tree will be for sale at the Ganz eStore on June 13th, 2009.

It looks just the same as the old one.

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

I was hoping it wouldn't come out! It's one thatI actually have....

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

That is so cool!! I'm glad they did that!!

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

That's so cool! I got one myself, which makes me happy

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

That is so nice!! Just wondering where is the Blue Dragster??

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

Of all the retired items they decided to duplicate in the estore, WHY THAT?? They could have duplicated the red lava, blue dragster, '05 Christmas bear, '05 Witch hat...... But those ice cream trees are already everywhere and I can't even find anyone who wants the ones I have!! Oh well - I guess they'll realize that when not as many people buy it.

I agree. I see these all the time in the trading rooms.

And I was pretty excited to have gotten one yesterday in a trade... Such is life...

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

I too, would have loved to something more rare...Oh well...maybe next time.

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

I don't know if I like the whole idea of replicas......If something is 'rare' or 'antique' in the real world, it holds value because you cannot get it again. Now the value of some of these old items is taking a nose dive, and it takes away the fun of trying to obtain some of these items! What if I trade all my best items for some bunny ears or the witch hat, and then next week it comes out. I would love to have these items, but I want to get them the hard way. I will NOT be buying this tree, because I already have it. And I also don't know if I want to support the "replica" market.....might just try my luck getting things the hard way! (That being said, if they do offer any old clothes for sale, I'd buy them in a heartbeat! )

I agree completely. Ganz makes MONEY off of people wanting to trade items for the bigger more long-retired items, and I wish they would realize that. Because many people who need the older retired items will go BUY the newer releases because the pet items that come with it are popular because they are new, simply to use the new pet items in trade for an older retired item. Ganz is really shooting themselves in the foot by selling retired items in the estore.

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

I will not be buying this I have 4 in storage and a few more used in rooms I would rather they brought something older back the blue dragster, I would be all over that or the red or purple lava. I just hope they don't bring back the totem pole!

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

I don't think it will be as popular as the skater board was. More people have the tree then the trophy. We'll see though! I don't mind them comming out with stuff. I mean, it does take down the worth, but that would be selfish of me and we mght as well be happy for those who never had a chance before!

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

Uhg, I am starting to re-thing the whole "collector" idea of WW.
It really is the one thrill I get, yes I like the games but getting that item that is so difficult to get just gives me that rush.

I have no idea where you guys are trading because I never see this tree in the trading room, I love it and would "scoop" it up in a minute.

With that being said it is VERY clear that WW is trying to make thing have no $ value by introducing these retired items.
It is a bit crazy to see the REAL cash some of this stuff sells for on other sites.

I seem to be talking in circles here.
i just wish they understood that collecting is a HUGE big deal to some of us and this just destroys that.

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

Well, luckily, I have like 2 or 3 of the originals, so I'm not getting the replicas.
I wish GANZ would stop making replicas!! The replicas make it so the originals' rareness go down. If tons of people just buy replicas, nobody would want the originals!! I'd like my rare exclusives to stay rare!

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

AWESOME!!!!! I have to get it!

Re: Ice Cream Tree "Replica" Coming to eStore June 13th

Seriously? It took me FOREVER to find the original ice cream tree for my candy room and I traded some pretty valuable things for it and now they are just going to let you buy it? That's not fair
