<blinks> That's the user policy. It applies to users (us), not to Ganz or their authorized representatives.

Ganz is not a "user" and cannot be in violation of the "user policy".

A parent requires kids to consume all food at the kitchen table, but takes their own coffee and snacks into the living room. Maybe even makes a mess. The parent is exempt from the kitchen rule because it's their house and their rules. WebKinz is Ganz's "house". They can set up a hotdog stand in the bathroom if they want.

Now backing away from the thread... nice thread... pretty thread... bye, thread.

Yeah I'm with you!! I just think it's so stupid that they expect us to buy virtual pets and items for REAL money! I really like the pets that are available in the eStore, but I would only buy them if they came with a plush pet! I wish they did very much. ='(
Thanks for making a great point! Rep! =D

do you realize there are some countries that dont sell the plushies at all. the only way people can get them is to pay outrageous prices on ebay and such. i think the online only pets are a great thing especially for people in those countries. they get pets at a reasonable prices and no shipping

anyway thats my opinion and im stickin to it

Yes, Ganz wants money. All businesses want money, because then they can pay the people who work for them. By having an e-store, Ganz can give jobs to many more people, including designers (who draw the pictures of new pets and items) and computer programers (who turn these pictures into the pets that we play with online). They have families that depend on the money that Ganz pays them to do their work. Eliminating the estore would result in the loss of jobs, and I for one do not want that to happen! So if you do not like the estore, then luckily you have a choice to buy plushies at the real store. But I am glad that Ganz has expanded their business by selling the virtual pets, too, because that means more jobs for more people. It's all good!

I don't think it was a good idea. Ganz is only doing this for money. sure a few people may disagree with me. It would be a good idea if it cost a lot less. Ganz wouldn't be able to make tinker pup plush because online it has a lot of screws and it's made out of medal. But for the grey wolf and the purple moster those should have a plush! And they should stop selling the online stuff because they are way to expencive they are worth under a $1.00 but the online pet is worth $4.50

I will never ever ever purchase an online pet only. NEVER. No matter how cute it is! I want the plush! I think that Ganz should stop this online pet only nonsense! It may be fun to some people, but wasn't the whole point of webkinz the plush??? Plus, the plushes are cute and cuddly! And, you can get the webkinz clothing for them! You can't do that for online only pets!
So who's with me???

I do like the plush pets, but I think it adds to waste in our environment. I think the online pets are nice because I can have a mix of the two - a few plush pets, but also some pets that won't add to the landfill one day.

Still... online pets are more environment friendly. Think of all the wasted material there would be if people bought the plush pets yet they just wanted the virtual pet. Now they don't have to and the plushes won't go to waste.

Yes - Some countries stores don't even sell webkinz. So, the only way they can get them is on Ebay, which the prices can be extremely high..This way everyone who has internet access can enjoy webkinz, and people (Like myself.) who buy Webkinz for the virtual game, won't have to waste the plushie to play.

Smile Re: STOP THE ONLINE PETS!!!!!

I agree. My bro and I personally think that the plushies are half the fun and how each of our Webbies got their personality developed is from playing with the real versions. Besides, my mother says that I'm not allowed to buy E-Store because it's only virtual, so what's that point? I think Ganz should focus on real plushies, not just online only ones.

Yes, but GANZ has put seperate pets (basic ones) that are for sale in other countries. Why make ones that are for anywhere just because?

True, but they should focus less on E-Store pets and more on real ones. And the designers and programmers have to work on Webbies that are avaidable as plushies, too!
