Default Re: It would be smart if Ganz re-released the Cheeky Cat and Dog

Think about it this way.
A cheeky dog or cat is kinda like a classic car, say from like 1960. That car would be worth ALOT of money right now. But if the factory started to rebuild and sell that exact same car, it would demolish the value of it.
It's pretty much the same way with the old classic Webkinz that are now retired, in my opinion.

I'm sorry, but I completely disagree.
They are retired and I believe retired items/pets should stay retired. [I was a bit mad when they un-retired the Unicorn.]

Imagine if someone just bought a Cheeky Cat for $300 dollars, I saw someone on eBay who actually did. Then let's say GANZ did un-retire the Cheeky Cat and started selling it again for only about $15. Wouldn't that person who spent 300 bucks be mad?

I'm sure that the people who spent $600 dollars on a cheeky dog wouldn't just be outraged - they would be devastated. These things have value. You can't just do that. xP
well, Im sorry for expressing my opion.

Using the "they have no more fur" thing is not a real reason when there is always the possibility of obtaining more.

Sure, it would make people mad. It would make those mad who spent outrageous amounts of money on getting one. However, more people have joined Webkinz since the Cheeky Dog and Cat were retired than were members when they were active--a LOT more. So, if you want to look at numbers, I'd be willing to safely bet there'd be more people willing to buy them than would be complaining. I think it would be a sure seller.

People buy stuff for investments, but all investments carry a risk. Never forget all those people who bought Beanie Babies, and at the top of their popularity whole collections were going for thousands. Now, after the shine has worn off the fad, they are worthless. Same thing will eventually happen to Webkinz, and all those people who paid big bucks for a Cheeky Dog or Cat will be mad whether it was done to them by Ganz or by the general public's waning interest in Webkinz.

So, I say YES. Bring them back!
THANK YOU! Some one who understands!

Yes! Great idea! To those people out there who would get mad because they bought one for over $200, so sorry! It's ridiculous to spend that much on a stuffed animal anyways!

I have to say, I completly disagree.
I'm not going to make a long and rambly coat, and even though what MamaDragon said was right- they'd wear out, imagine how they would feel.
I can.
My family has been having money trouble for a LONG time. If I, someway, had gotten the cheeky dog yet spend $500, I would be happy.

then the next day, if they brought it back, I would see many happy faces. But my family would be devasted, and be in a bit f trouble if we had just wasted $485 on a plush toy. It would be a lot of trouble, and I know there are many more families with financal troubles bigger than ours who probably decided they'd get a cheeky dog for their kid because it's not like they can hop on a plane and go have fun right away. I'd imagine they'd be completely, completely devasted.

That's the problem. It would not be smart, because IF Ganz did this, a lot of people WOULD, infact, quit.

I'm pretty sure I won't, as webkinz is an escape from reality for me, but many, many, would.
I have always loved the cheeky dog, but I would much prefer I work hard and get it for $500 someday (if we win the lottery) than buy it for $15 and then think of all the people who lost so much money for one single plush toy with a piece of paper in a plastic tag attached.

and I just realized I did make this into a long rambly post. sorry.

I respect all opinions, but I will gladly debate on the side for not bringing back the cheeky dog.
Thank you,
~Amy

Thank you so much all for posting your opinions. Closing this thread now, since I think we've pretty well covered it.
