As one who has been closely involved with Rares for well over a year now, I must respectfully disagree with this thread.

Retiring a Rare theme is an excellent idea, it will inject new life into things. Having retired items is part of the fun in WW, just look at all the interest that lava lamps acquired by becoming retired.

More frequent Rares sales will not help the many with Kinzcash shortages, it will just add to the frustration of being unable to buy several rares daily.

Believe me, the retirement route is better for all of us. And remember that mixing themes is much more creative than building a "matched set". It's not at all necessary to have every Egyptian item, in order to create a great pyramid room, on the contrary adding other items from other themes results in a unique room.

Creativity is the name of the game here.

i think this should be about kids being unable to attain items that they were told from the beginning would be available. i know retirement is part of the game but to retire items that people have to wait long peroids of time for is unfair. i mix and match my rares alot. i commented on my musuem rares in an earlier post..my point in starting this thread was to give people a chance to talk about their frustrations with rares being retired without hearing every few posts "i hope its XYZ theme going" everyone has a theme thats special to them and i wanted a chance to express in the section that was created for the purpose of getting all our ideas for ganz in one place.

i am dreading the day we find out which theme is retired and i have to tell one of the kids here that i will not be able to get a certain item for them. the kids in my family depend on auntie nicole, the cool aunt, to make all there webkinz items appear from the curio shop. they have learned about saving kc, and waiting patiently for their special item to show up. whenever possible i will let them go to artes but many times items pop up while in school. i get asked on a regular basis if i have seen the items they want. they don't care about entire collections, just certain special items.
i see nothing positive that can come out of retiring a rare theme. i don't see how that will help with creativity. i only see an impossible quest to obtain the retired items and having to give up a lot more that an item is worth to see it in my dock. kids who only can play a hour or two a day are not able to afford to get these items needed to trade for retired pieces. so who wins? not the kids

It is hard enough for the kids to get the rares and find them when they are on WW. If the main objective is like what Ganz said in their own "tweet" retiring a rare so they can cycle through the others better? Then just have another rare on weekends or twice a day? It will still be rare because of the cost and the fact its only @ curio and we don't know (especially those not on level 7 or starting out) WHEN it will show up. Retiring a rare is just not a well thought out plan in my OHO . I agree with the point made earlier some kids get webbies 1 a year for gifts and don't have guardians/parents to stock pile emergency stash for the rares and get them during Asian early am hours. They rely on their KC and playing the games and jobs etc. I know WW has a lot of Adults (guilty of 200 + pets here! ) but wasn't this originally geared for the "young" and young at heart. Please retire another wshop and don't send it to curio,please keep the rares. Thank you

I totally agree! I am collecting 4 rare themes right now and would be very upset if one of them retired! And, every theme does have its own collectors, so please don't retire a rare theme Ganz!

Hi Nicolee1978,
There are a variety of opinions expressed here. Thanks you for posting this thread. I have a small regular account. The main reason I participate in Webkinz is to collect items for my godchildren. They are only permitted to have computer time on the weekends.

In my opinion, this choice by Ganz is bad for their business.

1. The purchase of rares does generate cash for Ganz directly (estore) and indirectly (retailers).

2. Many people will not be able to purchase the items they want. This will create frustration and bad feelings toward Ganz.

3. All customer centered companies do announce what they are retiring and when they are doing it. This way people can purchase the items they want before they are "out of stock". Ganz is not telling us which rare theme and what date it is being retired. This will create frustration and bad feelings toward Ganz.

4. This will decrease the purchases of new and future rare themes. Who wants to start a collection that they can not finish? I doubt I will start another rare collection.

5. The Deluxe account holders do have alot of benefits. The rare dining room chairs are usually offered to these members, but not very often to the regular members. This has happened with the Medieval Dining Chairs twice in the last two weeks. If Medieval is the theme that retires, it would be salt in the wound. Sure, I could get other chairs for my godchildren's dragon rooms. But why should I when I have the kinzcash to buy the matching chairs?

Ganz, please reconsider the decision to drop a rare theme. If you must do it, please tell us all the items and when they will be retired. It would be better to have all of them offered in the Curio Shop during the close down time.
