I have seen Lil kinz priced from $9 to $20
Webkinz from $12 to $25
This is in my local mall! One store sells Lil kinz for $9 and the store on the other end of the mall sells them for $20.
Cards go for $2.10 in one store and $4.50 at the other.

Problem is the stores that you are buying them from.
Say the going rate for a Lil Kinz from the manufacturer is $7, you are going to have stores marking them up based on demand. Hence the reason they are anywhere from $9 to $20.

If anything, try and talk to the management of your local store that you are buying them from and voice your disgust at what they are charging and tell them you will not pay the crazy prices.
Call Hallmark, American Greetings and Carlton and complain to the companies. Only problem with that is most stores are privately owned and pay to put the Hallmark Etc on the front of their store.

Good Luck! This really will not work.
Plus you are paying for all those people making them in China and the importing fees

You may think the prices are ridiculous, but when you are in a business like that, they need to raise the prices. Ganz has to survive. I hear that Ganz sells a lot of stuff, but pretty much makes most of money off of Webkinz.
Ganz has to survive off the money that Webkinz bring in. $13 isn't bad at all. Ganz knows that no matter how high they raise the prices, we will always love Webkinz, and we will still keep buying more.

In the 'stuffed animal business', Ganz is probably struggling, but Webkinz is holding them up. If you don't think $13 is good, try eBay.

like always, i am against the petition(i have a thing, this is like the third one ive been against) but i remember one day in the faq or what ever on the webkinz page, i read that the store makes the prices,not ganz. so if anything you should suggest to you store to lower the prices. and i have wanted to pay more money for a stuffed animal that didnt come with a code...(it was a bat stuffed animal for $20)
