GANZ NEEDS TO REGROUP, RETHINK, & REPRIORITIZE!!! *The Production of Webkinz Pets needs to slow down while Ganz fixes it's other problems! (Themes, e-Store, W-Shop, Dailies, KinzCash, Glitches, Problems, etc.)* Post your thoughts!
 
Regroup, Rethink, & Reprioritize
*Take a Break From Production of Webkinz & Fix Everything Else!!!*



I don't kow if I am the only one noticing this but... Ganz needs to slow down and regroup and rethink. Ganz is coming out with more and more webkinz each month, which is yes GREAT because of the diversity, but it could be bad for the people who get every webkinz when it comes out. I know a few famlies who have two or more kids and get each of them webkinz whenever a new one comes out. Right now, it may seem great to have all of the choices, but think in a few months when Ganz is OUT OF IDEAS! It's going to happen sometime soon. I mean, there are only so many types of dogs you can make! I have done a little research and tracked what Ganz has done with it's webkinz production.

In the year 2005 Ganz Produced 21 Webkinz
In the year 2006 Ganz Produced 14 Webkinz
In the year 2007 Ganz Produced 29 Webkinz
In the year 2008 Ganz Produced 75 Webkinz
In the year 2009 Ganz Has Produced 49 Webkinz (to the current month; includes Rainforest Boa & Cotton Candy Sheep)
In the year 2009 Ganz Is Releasing AT LEAST 11 More Webkinz (at least 60 total)
199 Webkinz Total Since Day 1 of Production
*please notify me if I have this count wrong.*

As you can see in the year 2008 Ganz produced 11 +MORE+ webkinz than they did the previous three years combined, and are well on their way to 2009 being their most productive year.

I believe Ganz needs to quit worrying about producing more webkinz, but to begin fixing their continuing glitches and complaints. Ganz is producing more WEBKINZ than they need to. More things such as dailies, foods, furniture, etc. need to made before 100 more webkinz.

I also believe that the e-Store, Kinzclipz, Deluxe Memberships, etc. aren't that great either. I don't agree that with the e-Store you pay a lot money for an online pet. You don't even get the plush! I honestly don't even know what Kinzclipz are, but they seemed a bit tacky to me, so I didn't bother. Deluxe Memberships may be great at first, with the great e-Store points, Gift Box, Gold Zone, More Dailies, & a Deluxe Hat. However, the e-Store is very expensive and the monthly points probably can't get you much, for what you pay each month or annually (sp?). The items in the Gift Box can be traded in the trading room, and that goes for the hat also. As for the dailies, they aren't that great and diverse to begin with, and now are having problems... and your own color zone? That to me is a rip-off. I could care less what color zone I'm in all the time.

Another excellent point brought up through this thread is the distribution of KinzCash. As we all know, KC is very hard to earn... sometimes seeming impossible. Ganz could fix this problem by making more dailies, improve chances of winning on various games (Bingoz, Scratch Offs, Gem Hunt, Arcade, etc.), improve dailies to make more money, etc. Aside from earning KC, we all know how we like to spend it. But on what? As I and other WI members have pointed out before there is not much at the W-Shop you can buy. Most of it you must get through The Caring Valley, Trading Cards, & The Academy ((once you master a class)) which takes a lot of KC or $money$. Then, once you get the money and something to spend it on... it is so much KC! Have you seen the food prices? REDICULOUS! I honestly don't buy my PSF because of the high price, everything should be between 1 and 4 KC. You can raise the price for stuff like sushi and the candy, but I mean, what is it? $16 KC for a plate of chicken nuggets? That's expensive. I believe Ganz needs to improve the way you make money, what you spend it on, & how much everything is.


Please post your thoughts, agree, disagree, in the middle, or whatever you may be thinking... post it! Thanks!!!

Thanks! I know seriously, I mean it's like... "OMG! OMG! I bought my 68th webkinz today!!!...... to bad the site doesn't work most of the time!" Thanks for the rep! :)

Exactly! Give the wekbinz what they deserve! lol. They should only produce maybe 2 webkinz a month, and then 1 a month at the estore... that would be great for me! :)

Woah! I never knew the numbers were that big! But still, I love seeing allo f the great webkinz they come out with, and I think the more the merrier. I know I think way differently than everyone else, though. I also love it when they retire webkinz LOL. I love the new items, too. But I do think that the glitches and problems should be higher up on their list.

Also, about the "people that need to buy every webkinz that comes out" thing, remember that everyone is free to make their own choices, and they really have to buy every webkinz that comes out.

What would be a happy medium? I read about Ganz doing too much, I read about Ganz not doing enough. And watch all the traffic when the rumor goes out the Ganz is going out of business and shutting down WW. We ask for more, they give it. Do you think they are listening? I do. Everyone better becareful what they wish for. I know I have just become more selective about who and what I adopt. Another lesson in patience. I am at 24 and see a cherry blossom bird and fox in my future.

Yeah, the numbers are really big, bigger than I thought too. I also love to see the new webinz come out and all of the great ideas Ganz has now. I'm just worried for a year or two down the road when Ganz is coming up with every different type of ant or something. Maybe they should have a maximum for one month? I like it when the webkinz retire also... as long as its not one month after it comes out. New items are cool, the Crew at Ganz really have imaginations. Most definately glitches and problems should be higher up!

Yes, everyone is free to make their own decisions and I agree with you. I remember reading the few post where the mom said that she buys every webkinz for her kids that comes out, and I think... well that's to much! I mean really when are 199 webkinz going to come in handy? (Maybe in 20 years when they're a collectors item, but who wants to keep up with that many for that long?)

Thanks for making your opinions in a nice way! I really apppreciate it! :)

I agree! I've posted about this I don't know how many times. All of these e-Store items, and new Webkinz, and additions, and updates...UGH! Ganz really needs to fix all of the current glitches before adding anything else. They're getting to carried away. The scoreboard in the Arcade still needs fixed. Items are still getting stuck in my room. My pets are still floating. And sometimes I am still not able to complete all of my Daily Activities. I don't really think highly of the e-Store as it is, and it really isn't helping to make 7 new e-Store items a month. I don't like Birthstone Pets, Kinzclips, Deluxe Memberships, anything like that! I am so annoyed! I liked Webkinz so much better when it was simple. Anyone else agree?

I believe that Ganz is doing to much and to little. To much of producing products, and to little of fixing their long time problems. A happy medium for me, and I'm sure quite a few WI members would be a set amount of webkinz that Ganz can only make each month. I don't believe that Ganz will be going out of business any time soon with their $25 signature pets. I also, can't control the rumos that get out of hand, after all they're just rumors. You have to be more specific when you ask for more I guess. I think they listen when they want to, other times they make their own decisions. I believe everyone is careful about what they wish for, and everyone is having to get selective when there are 199 pets they have came out with. What do you mean another lesson in patience? I hope you enjoy your two new webkinz.

Thanks for commenting! :)

Personally, I think Ganz is making more webkinz now because a lot more people are interested in it. Since there so many new members, they are (probably) trying to broaden the selection a little. Does that make sense? This is sorta what happened to beanie babies. It became very popular, so Ty started making a lot more and retiring a lot more at the same time. But then it went out of style......and more than likely, that same thing will happen to webkinz, eventually. :(

I believe that we're going to have to keep stuff like this posted on the forum, so maybe one day, hopefully, Ganz will read it and see all of the replies. Yes, the arcade is what I think bugs me the most even though I don't even look at it. I mean how long has it been broken? A year? Floating pets is never good and the dailies most definately need to work in order for WW members to make the kinzcash to feed all of those webkinz Ganz is coming up with. The e-Store isn't my favorite either. I don't know about some people, but I spend good money on a pet, I want one for my room also, not just a emailed code. The 7 e-Store items a month? Gee, that'll really fix the glitches. lol. I don't like all of that added stuff either like the Birthstone Pets, Kinzclips, Deluxe Memberships, etc. some of it seems like stuff that will get lost and thrown away eventually. I personally thought the Kinzclips were tacky, but I don't know... maybe they're not. Webkinz does nee to go back to being simple, I most definately agree!

Thanks for your comments!!! :)

I agree with you also. I do believe Ganz is making more Webkinz now due to publicity, but maybe they shouldn't retire new webkinz so quickly, that would help cut down on the production, but still keep a choice broad. I absolutely agree that makes since. I agree it is what happened with beanie babies, but I don't think Ganz is going to go anytime soon, I mean look at the new stuff. Webkinz Jr., Signature Pets, Deluxe Memberships, e-Store, I mean from what I'm learning... a lot of people like these additons (some don't, including me, but hey! Not everyone has to have my same opinions!)

Thanks for commenting and stating your point in a nice way, without causing a big fus! :)

Wow - they have created a LOT of new pets!! I agree that they need to slow down on that. They've just added different colors for the same pets for a lot of them. I mean, how many colors/patterns of the same fish do they need?

But I have noticed that they are creating different kinds of animals lately. Most of them for the e-store. I hope that it is not a trend.

And I think everyone can agree that they need to fix the glitches on the site. The problem with that is that most of the glitches only happen some of the time. Kinda like your car - it always works when you take it to the mechanic!

This is a great discussion. It would be nice if Ganz would actually read it!

I really wish if they were going to make e store pets they either cut the price down or send the plush too. At first one here and there was ok. Now there are loads of new pets. They cost the same thing as the plush do. Sometimes more. I dont think they should sell a plushless pet for more money than a little kinz.

I know I was shocked when I added it up! I mean 199? 70 something in 2008 and this year it wouldn't shock me if they got up to 199 pets by the end of the year! Yes, they are doing the same colors for the same pets. I mean really? Great you have spent $75 on wekbinz to get the same fish in red, orange, yellow, blue, and purple. Rediculous if you ask me! But that's just my opinion...

Yes, I agree they are broadening(such a word?) their horizons and making different types of pets. I like the zebra, camel, toucan, etc. they have added the past few months. Yes, a lot of them are for the e-Store... which I posted earlier isn't my favorite way of getting webinz. I mean, I want the webkinz in my room if I pay money for it, not just on my online account.

Yeah, I agree with your glitches statement!

Thanks, I do believe this would be a very productive thread if we can keep it up on the boards for Ganz to read, but I need a bunch of replies. So, tell everyone you know!!!

Thanks for your comments!!! :)

That's the reason I don't like the e-Store. Don't get me wrong... the service sounds fine, but with the current problems of not processing orders, not getting your codes, etc. it just doesn't seem worth it. Yes, I agree that the price should be cut down if you don't even get the plush. I think that if they sent the plush to you they could say that the additional cost was for shipping and handeling and they would make money and customers happier. I agree, the bottom line is....
If you don't give me the plush, dont' charge me more than you would for a little kinz.

Thanks for commenting!!!:)

I know 199! It's insane! Thanks for agreeing! I agree, Webkinz was sooo much more fun when it was simple. I honestly don't care for the e-Store, Deluxe Memberships, Kinzclips, Club-Penguin Like Memberships, etc. I rather have my plain ol' webkinz back. lol. You would be surprised at how many people think like this.

The minute that Ganz slows down on producing new items every month most of their customers will forget all about them and find something new to spend their money on. WI members are a small and very loyal group of Webkinz fans. We might be able to let Ganz take a breather and spend a couple of months fixing glitches instead of putting out new Webkinz, but most of their customers will have just moved on to something else new and shiney and eye-catching and never give Webkinz another thought. A juggler has to keep throwing more and more things into the air or people will lose interest!

And running out of ideas for new pets isn't even a worry... there are millions of species and breeds of animals out there and that's not even counting the prehistoric, the mythical or the just plain made-up! :thumbup:

I very much agree i am a retired grandmother and i have four sites one for each grand child. I think two webbies a month is plenty to bing out. I also think the estore is way over priced for a virtual item, nothing should be anymorethan a 10 points and that would be for the pets. They really do need to make dailies better and more new items for the rooms and cclothing is really terrible. I love the webbies and enjo keeping the kid's site going but it is way to expensive for some one on a fixed income. Thanks very much

I don't think that they would forget about them, I just think that they would be ready for the next pet to come out and then buy that one. I think that Ganz wouldn't need to take a few months off to fix their glitches and problems. Honestly, I think if they would give out 2 days of their time, they could get everything fixed. Like one Monday & Tuesday they could close the e-Store, Webkinz, Webkinz Jr., etc. for those two days only. Then re-open up that Wednesday and show everybody the improvements they made.

I agree that they have lots of more pets to go threw. However, they need to expand and get different types of pets, not just (as someone said before) the same fish, but in different colors and patterns.

Thanks for your comments! I appreciate it that you stated your point very nicely. Great points!!! :)

Thanks for agreeing and commenting! Two webkinz in the stores and one at the e-Store is plenty to go around. I agree the e-Store is way over priced and it isn't even worth it. I honestly don't even like e-Store, Deluxe Memberships, Kinzclipz, etc. Dailies should be better and more fun. I like that they are coming out with new furniture, but yes the clothes are pretty bad. I agree and understand that webkinz can become expensive very fast. I mean $25 Signature Webkinz? I understand that it is made out of 'finer material' and 'bigger'... but the material honestly is the same, and I mean great! It's a whole two inches bigger. I like Webkinz when it was plain and simple!

Thanks for your commments!!! :)

Well, here's my two cents worth! I love Ganz coming out with new pets, virtual or plush, BUT, it is getting to be so many at once that it is HARD TO AFFORD!!! I want each new pet, but I can't afford each new pet. I don't know what the answer is because I see the people's points that say if they don't keep on making new ones people will lose interest or move on to other things. I se the point about the estore being expensive and I know there are lots of people that absolutely want a PLUSH not just virtual pets. I am glad they are making virtual pets because my house is overrun with stuffed animals already!!! That is just ME, though. The one thing that I REALLY, REALLY agree with 100% is that they NEED TO MAKE MORE FURNITURE, ROOM THEMES, ACCESSORIES and CLOTHES!!!! I am so sick of the room themes and the more pets you get the more rooms you need!! How many times can you do a room theme, no matter how creative you are, there is just so much you can do with the themes that are available. The lamps and decorative items-yuk! Sick of them. Outdoor yard things?? No new flowers, trees (except Caring Valley) which involves alot of money again. I have quit making yards, gardens, and treetop rooms because there are only so many ways to combine things to look different! Yes, if you can afford trading cards, or if you are good enough to graduate from the kinzville acadamy etc. you can get more kinds of furniture, but what about the kids who get on to play that WILL NEVER HAVE 40,000 KC to spend on the new movie screen???? Or will never be good enough to graduate from the academy? Or will never win a scratch and win? It takes A LOT to get 40,000 KC at 20 KC per wheel of wow and wishing well!!!!! I think they need to be more generous in the ways to make money. Well, I could just go on and on, but I have said enough. It is just irritating how hard I see my grand kids try to earn money and with school and everything else they are involved in, they can't sit on the computer all day trying to earn KC. They are always sad that they can't get the new stuff because they don't have enough KC. I think Ganz is REALLY STINGY with the KC they award for EVERYTHING. It should be challenging, but not next to impossible!!!SORRY this turned into a BOOK!!!!!

I want each new pet, but I can't afford each new pet. I don't know what the answer is because I see the people's points that say if they don't keep on making new ones people will lose interest or move on to other things. I se the point about the estore being expensive and I know there are lots of people that absolutely want a PLUSH not just virtual pets. I am glad they are making virtual pets because my house is overrun with stuffed animals already!!! That is just ME, though. The one thing that I REALLY, REALLY agree with 100% is that they NEED TO MAKE MORE FURNITURE, ROOM THEMES, ACCESSORIES and CLOTHES!!!! I am so sick of the room themes and the more pets you get the more rooms you need!! How many times can you do a room theme, no matter how creative you are, there is just so much you can do with the themes that are available. The lamps and decorative items-yuk! Sick of them. Outdoor yard things?? No new flowers, trees (except Caring Valley) which involves alot of money again. I have quit making yards, gardens, and treetop rooms because there are only so many ways to combine things to look different! Yes, if you can afford trading cards, or if you are good enough to graduate from the kinzville acadamy etc. you can get more kinds of furniture, but what about the kids who get on to play that WILL NEVER HAVE 40,000 KC to spend on the new movie screen???? Or will never be good enough to graduate from the academy? Or will never win a scratch and win? It takes A LOT to get 40,000 KC at 20 KC per wheel of wow and wishing well!!!!! I think they need to be more generous in the ways to make money. Well, I could just go on and on, but I have said enough. It is just irritating how hard I see my grand kids try to earn money and with school and everything else they are involved in, they can't sit on the computer all day trying to earn KC. They are always sad that they can't get the new stuff because they don't have enough KC. I think Ganz is REALLY STINGY with the KC they award for EVERYTHING.

Don't worry about how much you posted... It's okay! :) I do like Ganz coming out with new pets it's exciting and fun, but very chaotic at the same time. It is getting very hard to afford, and I understand that they're are many different points to this thread. They want your money, but the glitches and poor merchandise at the W-Shop doesn't make you want to spend on the company. I understand about NOT wanting the plush, if your house is filled with them now, just get the online pet and it makes life simple!lol. Yes, the merchandise is a big problem at the W-Shop. You're correct, I really don't like repeating the same theme 8 times in one house, it's rediculous. The lamps are really bad, the only one I really, really, really like is the uptown city living theme. The decorative items are bad.. I think they're like what 2 paintings? I agree the Caring Valley, Trading Cards, & Academy are the only real ways to get decent stuff, but they cost a lot of Kinzcash or real $money$. The prices aren't great, you have a point there. ((That'll be going on the main thread!)) And yes, it's hard to earn $40,000 KC. Ganz needs to make more dailies or make it easier to win a scratch off (improve the odds maybe?) or make it to where you can earn more money on the current dailies. I know my little cousin really wanted this thing ((I forget exactly what...) at the W-Shop and he doesn't have a bunch of KC because he spends it on food for his webkinz (which very overprised... $25 PSF?) and it was something simple, but expensive, and he couldn't get it. I hated telling him he didn't have enough. It is almost impossible to earn KC. Once again, don't worry about how much you posted... you shared your opinions and that's all that matters!!!

Thanks for sharring your comments!!! :)

Everyone better becareful what they wish for. I know I have just become more selective about who and what I adopt. Another lesson in patience. I am at 24 and see a cherry blossom bird and fox in my future.

happy medium would be nice. keep the new to a minimal and fix the problems. as far as our household is concerned, they shot themselves in the foot bc the more they put out, the less i spent. it got REALLY easy to say "yeah, we dont need everything from WW" when they put out a billion items. its been months since i bought a webkinz and pre-august 2008, we had every webkinz they produced (less the cheeky dog/cat and love puppy). we were super collectors. after aug- 2008, i kept my spending to the 2-3 webkinz/month until oct-2008 and then i just quit buying bc it was just too much. dont even remember when i bought a webkinz last. i think it was the end of march? our fav webkinz store still likes us (i think) bc my son likes to buy bakugan with his allowance.

Hmmmm...I'm almost afraid to post, LOL :)

I love all the new pets and the eStore. I love all the new games (Woodland, Zumwhere, Doug, etc...)

I think the only thing I DON'T like is that not all items are KinzPostable / tradable...I think they should be.

I love trading and decorating and I like to mix-n-match themes, so I've been OK with what's available out there to work with.

Please...don't everyone hit me at once, LOL! *cringe* :)

-------------------------------------------------------
...just to add, this DOESN'T mean I run out and buy every new thing that comes out, I just like the variety and being able to "pick and choose"... :)

Once again, people stopped buying because of all the new stuff being produced, which became to much. I know you weren't directing this reply to me, but I still wanted to reply to it. I haven't bought a webkinz in forever!

Thanks for your comments!!! :)

Afraid to post huh? Haha okay... thanks for doing it anways. lol. :thumbup:
I like some of the pets, and I think Doug is a great add. It makes you more active with your Gem Hunt and stuff. I honestly think that webkinz added that because people didn't really care about doing it and saving up for the "Crown of Wonder", so this feature makes people do it. I also don't agree with everything not being Kinzpost'able' (making up my own words as I go...) if you spent your KC or $money$ on stuff, you should be able to do whatever you want with it. I like trading, it allows you to get great stuff, but it's become a place for scammers to con you out and get what they want. At first, when yo get your first few pets the W-Shop seems to have everything you ever need, but a pet-peeve of mine is repeating things and I really don't like repeating the same beds, themes, rooms, etc. I understand that you don't buy everything at once, "picking and choosing" is what everyone has to do now with all of the new stuff that comes out.

Thank for commenting! :)

Yes, I know we all have to be careful in the Trading Rooms, at least they implemented the "naming feature" so you know what the other person is putting up.

I do most of my trading here on WI in the GE (I see you can too, now...you're gonna L-O-V-E it!) so you can take your time and really get what you want for your items. :D

Sorry to burst you're bubble, LOL, but I'm going on 100 pets, LOL, and my WW House is going on 60 rooms and I haven't decorated two rooms the same yet, hee-hee! *wink!* ^-^

Like I said...I LIVE to trade & decorate ;D

Thank YOU for all YOUR comments!
Hugs!

I'm glad they added the naming feature also. The scammers are like, "Ooooh look! An exclusive chair!" And then your like, "Let's scan over that real quick.... Hmmm nah... it's a pile of fruit. The GE is probably a really safe and fun way to trade, I need to get started on it. 100 pets and not the same two rooms? You're a decorating finatic... you must be really good at it!

Thanks for replying and commenting!!! :)

Re: GANZ NEEDS TO REGROUP, RETHINK, & REPRIORITIZE!!! *The Production of Webkinz Pets needs to slow down while Ganz fixes it's other problems! (Themes, e-Store, W-Shop, Dailies, KinzCash, Glitches, Problems, etc.)* Post your thoughts!
 
As a mom with 4 kids I really enjoy the site. It my time to relax and unwind. I get sick of the updates that happen during playtime. Right now I am in a place that I can not afford to buy anymore Webbies. IF I could buy more it wouldn't be Caring Valley or Signiture series. One Zum clip is enough. I am still trying to get Charm Forest wallpaper & the Star chair.

I didn't think Webkiz Day was all that great either.

Webkinz World is a happy place! The stuffies are so cute!

My son gets bored with the site! What does that say?

Great thread. Thanks for starting it!

ROTFL :2funny: ...a pile of fruit...that's a RIOT! Yeah, I had someone try and pass off a Monkey & Monkey Dummy as a "rare doll" and then when I called them on it (KinChat Plus), they were like, "Well, that's what the person who traded it to ME said it was"...yeah, right! LOL! ::)

Yeppers, I certainly AM a decorating fanatic, LOL ;D

I like coming up with Theme Rooms in my head and then trying to find the items to fit that theme.
(Like I have a small 7 X7 Library that has the Book Superbed and WTales Sofa in it and the Wizard Bookshelves and the Lots of Learning (FSI) Bookshelves (single shelf of books) in it :thumbup:
