Default Re: Stop the online only pets!

I have mixed feelings about the online only pets. I like the idea of not having yet another stuffed toy in my house (both my daughter and son have entirely too many already - not just Webkinz), but I think the price is high considering what you get for it. Of course, that's one of the many things that makes this country run, everyone is able to decide what price they will, or will not, pay for an item. Obviously the price isn't too high for some and I don't have a problem with Ganz selling them...or the other online exclusives. I also think this concept of selling online pets is good for those who are unable to get out and locate the plushies, either because of where they live or because of other reasons. Too bad Ganz doesn't implement kitty668's idea of offering the same "pet" online that is available in the brick & mortar stores instead of them being online only. I think the floral fox would be a really cute plushie.

I'm not a huge fan of the e-store and have never bought anything, but I certainly don't need any more plush pets. Maybe the e-store is geared more toward adults who love Webkinz? I have a small house and don't need any more stuffed animals. Poor stuffed Vixen just sits on top of my computer, but online Vixen gets to play every day!

To each his/her own. If you want the plushie, great--if you don't need another stuffed animal, maybe the e-store is the place to go.

I think the e-store is an OK idea. I think the price is just a rip off... $12.50 for just a code?!My first 20 or so webkinz were $10 for a code and plush! Heck, I remeber when some store near my Bubbie's house was selling webkinz for around $8 on black Friday and she bought my sister and I like 5-8 webbies apiece(We share our accounts) for Hannakuah!
I think it's good though because the online pet doesn't take up any space in your house. My sister and I have like 2 buckets full of our 50 something webkinz.

That is what I do with ours. DD only needs so many plushes and DSKs are too old (in their minds) for stuffed animals. I have 4 retired plushes on my desk. The children's hospital was thrilled to get them.

julianimal,

I want to thank you for sharing your suggestion... thought I agreed with you at first but then I had this thought:

What about animals that might be easily animated in WW, but would be really hard to do as plush pets?

The online only would be a great way to provide animals Webkinz fans might really want to see, but Ganz could make or couldn't afford to make because of cost.

I'm sorry that you don't have access to the plushies you want , but wanted to add this other thought to the mix.

Peace, Jenn

Personally, I would absolutly LOVE the pets having a Plush, I was fairly dissapointed when I found out a Plush wasn't made for the Grey Wolf. As you can probably tell, I am really fond of Wolves. The Floral Fox/Bubblegumasaurus should have a plush, but they could be a little hard to make
Ganz could easily make a Grey Wolf Plush, but I don't know about the other two

I LOVE the online-only pets! I have both the Floral Fox and the Bubblegumasaurus. Their names are Florencia and Fruity Pebbles. I named her Fruity Pebbles because I have a Cocoa Dino named Cocoa Pebbles. The reason Ganz is doing the online only pets is so people in other countries can have webkinz too. Another reason they are doing it is because the Floral Fox and Bubblegumasaurus both are so special that it would be too expensive to make. Like the Whimsy Dragon. For the Floral Fox, if they tried to make a plush they would need to put silk flowers all over them and it would just be too expensive. I am going to get another bubblegumasaurus today actually.

i get them for 9.99 and 7.99 for lil kinz but anyway i have a floral fox, grey wolf, and bubblegumasaurus. i might get another bubblegumasaurus today (havent made up my mind yet) i think the online pets are GREAT . one of my daughters and i collect them and we have 160 or so webkinz (i have more than her lol) out of the 160, 6 or 7 of them are online pets (cards and e store). i like the online pets because the plushies take up room that i dont have, right now they are all in boxes (even hers)

everyone has their own opinion and i commend them for standing up for what they believe. if people want to contact ganz and tell them they dont like the idea of online only pets then go for it . i dont know if ganz will listen to them OR to the people who are willing to pay 12.50 for a code, only time will tell

~thats my opinion and im stickin to it~ have fun all

How have they gotten rid of the plush toy? Did yours disappear because they now sell some only online? If you do not like the idea, simple do not buy them. This is America - you shouldn't try to force other people to think the same way you do.

Think about people out in the country that can't get to a store that sells them or people in other countries that don't sell the plush version. You would take the opportunity away from them just because you personally do not like it?
