The bodies can

be opened and the filling used to stuff a pillow.
be used for a beanbag toss game.
make good pet chew toy.
be stress relievers - ever rip off a tag?? or the head??
be used in a scientific experiment - how many 'beans' does a body contain?
be tossed at the monkies at the zoo.
be thrown at the TV during a sporting event. - Ever gotten mad at a bad call?
be used under a tire stuck in the mud.



Hmmm, maybe I DO need those bodies!!
You made me laugh so had that I cried. And then I almost wet myself when I read it a second time. Rep points to you!

I enjoy going to the estore and don't miss another stuffed animal in the house.I don't care how cute it is it will end up in the big box of webbies under the bed.I don't use credit cards I use a debit card same as cash for me no fee. As for people who do not have a credit card they sell Master card and Visa gift cards. I fully respect your opinion on this but I for one enjoy the estore.

I agree 100%!

Those online pets are SO expensive and you aren't ACTUALLY even buying a product. It's pretty much just AIR! LOL! You're only buying a computer graphic!

I love the online pets... Yeah, they are a little pricey but, if you really think about it, we're buying the entertainment factor that goes along with them. Most of the purchases we make are things we buy but can't hold onto. We spend $10 for a ticket to see a movie. We have nothing to hold onto after that. Cell phones, cable tv, satellite radio... All purchased for entertainment purposes but don't give us anything tangible to hug! I love the estore and WW. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I think that Ganz did a good thing introducing the online only pets. Some may think that it's very inexpensive to offer these pets but it really isn't. There is a lot of designing and behind the scenes work that goes into each of these animals. It takes dozens of people lots of time to design them and make sure they work in WW. Just my opinion.

Hmmm, okay I am another extremist I guess. I save my outrage and boycotting for things like unnecessary starvation, abuse of living creatures, abuse of our planet, pointless deaths, and other issues of this ilk. Whether a company chooses to be greedy in a capatilistic society, or a consumer choices to spend their money on the like of virtual items is really a personal choice I don't wish to spend my time worrying about.

Heck, pay per view, cable, going to the movies and soooooo much more....all are
intagible means of entertainment that really just don't influence my emotions one way or another.

So, I think that puts me in the to each his own category.

I have both & adore them all! I wish they would make the virtual only pets into plushies, because they are so darn cute!
Some don't wish to have the plushies & it works out for them! Everyone has different needs. I do think the online pets should be considerably dropped on price, but Ganz knows as long as people are paying it they aren't gonna do that!
A local gift shop here has Codes Only for sale on their website & at their store. I'm not positive if that is a Ganz thing or what, but they are all $11.99 each. Although that is cheaper than the $16.50 stores---I find big webkinz on sale at this store all the time for $7.99-$10. Go figure!
Also Hallmark has their big webbies for $12.50. I don't get why they are charging so much for the codes only.
Regardless as long as 1 person buys them, they will keep selling them. Supply & demand.

Have a great Day!!

A few available if fine by me.. for people who cannot drive down to Hallmark and get one (they may not be able to afford money to drive, ect. Or don't have any stores that sell webkinz near them).
I'm just afraid that one day I am going to log on webkinz and see 'NO more plushes! ALL online only pets from now on!'.

Default Re: Stop the online only pets!

If you really think about it, online pets and plush pets are the same price.

You play 12 dollars for the code, and 3 dollars for the plush. All you don't get is the 3 dollars for the pet. Sure, it's just a computer graphic, but they're actually cheaper than plush pets, which is what I(and my mom!) like.

Please don't throw them away. Take them to a hospital ,women;s crisis center, police station where they can be given to children that might not get toys and it might help them through a rough situation. Webkinz are way cuter than the average stuffed animal. Please be a blessing to someone with your abundance.
