Hi, I felt the way you do at first when I saw that the e-store was selling virtual items for real money, but then I thought people spend so much money just playing all kinds of games on-line and the e-store and Webkinz is just entertainment just like that. I wasn't going to buy from the e-store at first, but I have now and then. I know there is probably better ways I could spend my time, but I enjoy it and its relaxing after working all day.

I have bought some items, but the pets are a little pricey without receiving a plush. For $0.50 to $1.00 more, I can buy a webkinz animal and code.

I have been tempted to buy at the e-store, but just can't bring myself to do it yet. If I spend that much money, I want something in my hand instead of just on the computer. It's one thing to buy a game that I can play on line but another to buy one small item that I won't be playing with that much. I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels this way.

I like the e-store. I do agree with you about the items, but where I live, if the Floral Fox came out the only place that would have it would be Limited Too. At Limited Too, the Webkinz are $16.75. So, I think that 12.50 is a reasonable price. I think that the reason that Ganz is doing this is for these three reasons. 1: Ganz is doing this so people in other countries can have the oportunity to purchase Webkinz. 2: They e-pets are so unique and special that stores would probably run out and costomers would be unsatisfied. 3: The e-pets are so unique that it would be too expensive for Ganz to try to make. They would be loosing more than they were earning. Like the Whimsy Dragon, they shiny material was too expensive. So take the Floral Fox. In order to make a plushie, they would have to sew fake flowers all over them, and it just wouldn't make much profit.

There are still tons of reasons to play on WW ~ things you can spend KC on, that won't change.

I don't think the pets being hard to make is really the reason Ganz has the estore. Plain and simple, it is a way for them to make a lot of money. They found a gold mine and are using it to their best advantage. Pets are only a few of the things available in the estore --- many of the other virtual items could have been introduced into the WShop or into the Curio Shop as new rare (no theme) items. Having the charms in the estore saves them from having to manufacture, warehouse, package and ship and you still get access to the Charm Forest. (Plus the old charms had lead in them, so they were hazardous.)

One advantage of the estore, is that, like you, many people live in areas (small towns, etc) where they don't have access to the plush pets...they must order them online instead. Having pets in the estore gives those people an opportunity to have some new pets, as well. Also, some people have so many plush pets that they don't have room for them or have even donated them to charity to free up space in their house. Some of these people like getting a cute new pet without having the plush to dispose of.

Good point! People spend all kinds of money on intangible items...this is just another one. The bottom line is, if you don't like the estore, don't buy from it. If you do, great, enjoy it!

There are several threads about disliking the estore, and everyone has the right to start a thread voicing their opinion (though you should do a search first to see if a thread is already available to you). That is part of what makes WI so wonderful...people can say what's on their mind and others can chime in or disagree. It's a great way to get feedback.

Yes, it does cost real money ~ real money that Ganz wants to increase their profits. And if you don't care, simply don't go into the estore. It's not mandatory and you can still have plenty of fun on WW without the estore.

I'm apprehensive that some of the virtual items cost so much. But I think the pets are great! I guess just because I'm an adult Webkinz player, and I don't use the plush animals for anything, anyway, it's perfect for me. I also think that with virtual-only pets, the sky is the limit! Without having to make a matching plush, the pets will probably become more and more amazing. I'm really looking forward to see how much they push the creativity on those.
