Default Overpriced?!!!!

I think Webkinz are WAY overpriced. They should be 6.99 for 'Lil Kinz and 8.99 for Webkinz! I love Webkinz and I'm a proud owner of 38 Webkinz but I've spent over $300 dollars in Webkinz and I just don't think I should have to throw all my allowence and babysitting money down the toliet if I want to have a bunch of Webkinz. They don't even have a shortage of Webkinz, they are just trying to get us obsessed. What is up with this??

I say keep the Webkinz coming, keep these Plush Pets cute and furry, but for the guy who designs the prices, GET REAL!!!!

Who's with me????!!!!!!!!

Sorry I disagree. When beanie babies were all the craze the cheapest you could find them was $10.99 and some went for hundreds even before they were retired. And beanie babies just sit there and look cute.

At least with Webkinz you can enjoy the plush to cuddle and play with as well as you have the whole Webkinz world to interact with your virtual pet and with other Webkinz owners.

For each pet you pay for you get the plush toy plus one year of interactive play online. I buy all the plushes when I want them.. but I don't activate them. I have activated only 2 so far. I will activate them closer to my 'expiry' date to extend my WW time!

I don't think they are overpriced, either. At least, not yet, anyway. Where can you buy a computer game for around 15.00?? No where that I know.

I think the trading cards are a little overpriced, but that's life....And that's one of the biggest things I love about the WEBKINZ game in general: It is constantly teaching children about real life---financing, making choices, etc.

If you feel that you are flushing your money down the toilet then you should probably stop buying them because they are not worth it to you.

I agree. This really is a great tool to teach kids about the value of earning something. First they have to earn the money to buy the Webkinz.. then they have to earn the money to get their pets all the little extras they want.

I was lucky.. I got the trading cards for $2.99 a pack.. I don't think that's too bad. Hope when they get more that she keeps the price the same,

i dissagree with you. Webkinz teaches children things like for example this is on webkinz.com
  • Booger Gets an A promotes addition skills
  • Lunch Letters helps children to learn how to type and spell
  • Quizzy’s Word Challenge aids in spelling
  • Operation Gumball encourages children to think logically
look at the choices plus quizzys i mean the only place that has them over priced is limited too

Not very many children actually 'earn' the money for their webkinz. I know a little girl who everytime she sees a webkinz she likes, she gets it. And I know many other people who are the same way. They are technically not earning the money for the pet. i think that if you buy webkinz in large quantities you should get a special discount - or like a webkinz card where the amount you spend on webkinz adds up then when it adds up to like a hundred dollars you get a free webkin and every webkin after that is like 25% off. that would encourage people to buy webkinz but still not spend too much money. it is outrageous how much money people spend on webkinz. I have 14 pets so i must have spent $140 on webkinz, most of that being my money.
I agree that they are a bit more than i would like to pay.
however ganz obviously hires a lot of people to work on the site, think of the pets, make the pets, exclusive items, games, daily activities, arte's, etc. it takes a lot of work so they have to pay a lot of people so we have to pay a lot so they can make a profit otherwise it will go out of business.
