I think its important to acknowledge that Webkinz is not the first of its kind, people have had the idea to make virtual pets into plush toys for years. Webkinz just made a bigger impact because Ganz is more well-known then the companies trying the same idea. Also, Ganz not only hyped it up - they gave MANY features to Webkinz that are probably more well-funded then Shining Stars.
I will have to check out Shining Stars...
I think they could have done a bit better on the ideas for pets for Shining Stars, if they're supposed to be 'constellations' why didn't they make them based off the Zodiac or something? Doesn't make sense.
thats right they did copy webkinz and i know the story, when ganz was delayed of making webkinz the shining stars saw that as their opportunity to take over webkinz and make them history,so they started making their version of webkinz like crazy!!!! they were so interested in taking ganz down they didnt even have there arcade up, they still had alot to do.when ganz found out they started making more webkinz then soon they had them in all of the stores they're sold at, so now thats why everybody was getting huge shipments in at the same time!!! then they started donating money to charity to make them seem even better than webkinz!!! dont ever fall for their evil plans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! always stick to webkinz!!!!!!!! if u have anymore questions pm me i'll try to answer them!!!!!
add me im girliegirl66~~~~~~~
Donating to children's charities is an evil plan? What?
Even if they're rival companies, that doesn't make them 'evil'. They're just jumping the band wagon.
Just like Bratz copied Barbie, and you know what? Bratz got its own movie and gained its own fanbase, just like Shining Stars will.

That sounds as fishy as the story about the sonic fangirl who said she 'committed suicide' and told her friend on her dying breath to 'Take care of her neopets'.
I mean, if your sister really died thats just terrible but.. lets not over publicize family tragedy. Just because Shining Stars is similar to Webkinz doesn't mean its any better or any worse.
From what I got from it, it just seemed aimed towards a younger audience.
