i know, seriously know, this is a longshot. but we do have a voice and ganz does keep up with whats going on at webkinz insider. this is not a thread for "get rid of this theme" or "i don't like that one" this is to save all rares from being retired. or to give some suggestions to ganz that if they must retire a theme please give us a chance to buy the items from the theme.

thanks everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't retire the rare themes, Ganz! The themes you are talking about are ALREADY Curio Shop Only and hard enough to get!

My suggestion is make a New section called "Arte's Back Room"!

"Psssst...hey Arte? Got anything else for sale?"

DON'T RETIRE THE RARES, Ganz!!!!!

Wow amazing suggestion AuntMary57! That would be really neat...maybe you'd have to buy enough to be on level 7 terms with Arte before you could access it...that way they're still available but just slightly more challenging

many kids cannot get a lot of these rares and many parents have taken to picking up rares for them. i believe this is how many adults started an interest in collecting hard to find items. ganz forgot about the kids ages ago and as long as they have profits they will continue on this path. i have read some posts saying that Egyptian theme is most likely to be retired because it is the only one people would buy replicas from the estore. if ganz was so worried about kids the estore wouldn't exist. how many kids do you know that have credit cards? i don't know any!

i have read posts that say kids seem to buy pieces rather than collect whole themes. this is very very true also. but there are going to be a lot of kids out there waiting for a special item that will never appear again and what if they are not so lucky as to have a nice adult in their lives who follow WI or webkinz tweets? they may never even realize that item will never show up again? even if ganz runs a front page story on WW some kids could miss it. not all kids get to log in every single day and they change the front page twice a week.

i really believe this is not a good idea and it's sad that ganz is doing this. i know traders care about values and the WIGIV and the new values of retired items but this is not what kids care about at all! if they did there wouldn't be kids in trading rooms trading a love puppy PSI couch for a greasy grill!

Adding another 2KC because this wasn't up when I first posted...

My niece goes in and buys EVERYTHING in the W-Shop when a new theme comes up!

She has sold Exclusives, Priceless Retireds, you name it (without consulting her Aunt Mary!) just to get a new theme!

Traders do care about honest WIGEV values but I don't know a WI trader on here who would EVER say "Oh I hope this theme retires so I can get a greater value out of it".

Another thing, traders don't give a rip about eStore replicas BECAUSE THEY CAN NOT BE KINZPOSTED OR TRADED IN ANY WAY!

As a Trading Card Collector, when the Gamer's Garden Shrubbery bed came out as an eStore Replica, even though I didn't have it, I didn't buy it to finish my collection.

Why?

As a friend said, "It wasn't my kill."

In other words, I didn't get it from coding that one...last....card.

I finally got it on my own...and no! I'm not trading it!

Ganz, don't retire the RARES!

I really don't want them to retire a rare theme! Even though I only collect Palace Princess and the new Persian theme...

I agree that the rare themes shouldn't be retired.
If the items don't cycle through so quickly, that is quite all right with me.

My little ones love shopping for their pets, and finding something at Arte's that they have been saving up for is a delight to them (and to this mommy).

I'm pretty sure Ganz will retire a rare theme anyway. They might not even read this thread. Sorry, but I promise I'll tweet Ganz and ask theme to retire the Baseball theme instead.

Keep our rares! Keep our rares! Keep our rares!
Why retire the rares? I don't understand why? They are in the curio shop RARELY! We get one or two a day, and that's if you have PURCHASED Deluxe. I agree though. I think they will retire something they can offer in 6 months in estore. that would probably be Egyptian.
