Well, as others have said, you can always sell it .
But I'm just wondering, do each of them have their own account? If you have your own, put it there and let them play with it . If they each have their own accounts, let them choose: 2 new webkinz of your choice OR you can have this one ... or something that might change their opinions.
Good luck!

This thread has me fascinated!LOL I can't wait to see what you do. I still stick to my original post, but I wanted to let you know I did the math and 3 sherbet bunnies at an average price of $65 would be $195. If it sells for $300, this would give you $105 in profit. You could buy a box of trading cards to try to win another panda for about $80 leaving $25 in your pocket. Also, based on the magical retriever, the value is going to drop drastically. I say sell it while it's hot!

That sounds like a good idea to me i hope you make a good choice

When they grow up, they can make the decisions. After all, we're not talking about food or medicines here, but a hobby. There have to be advantages to being the grown-up. Otherwise, why should the kids want to grow up?

Use this opportunity to nip jealous behaviour in the bud. If they fight, this is an opportunity to help them get along. Teach them about envy, and how to overcome it, and how to appreciate what they do have. If they are being honest, they will admit that you are the one most deserving of this special treat, since you do so much for them.

Have fun and don't feel guilty!

And another thought: if one of your children had been the one to find the panda in their pack of cards, that child would have got to keep it. You wouldn't have taken it away and sold it on ebay without their permission, or given it to another child, or taken it for yourself.
Totally want to...don't know if I will. $300 would keep us well supplied with webbie stuff! This is agonizing...in a good way?

Default Re: I NEED ADVICE!! HELP MOMS!!!

I like Webberlilly's comments. If Mom finds it, it is Mom's! However I think I would definitely choose to ebay it. I don't think I would keep it a secret from my kids, I would get them in on the excitement of watching it go on ebay. Also, that way if I decided to share the money with the kids or use it to get other Webkinz, they would know where the money came from and why instead of thinking that Mom is made of money to provide them with lots of stuff.

I would not try to arrange a sharing situation with this. As well as my kids get along together, I think it would be too hard to come to a mutual agreement as to how to design the room, dress the pet, etc.

Congratulations on your find! I look forward to finding out how this goes for you.

Default Re: I NEED ADVICE!! HELP MOMS!!!

Here are some more details of my situation: daughter #1 is removed, daughter #2 removed, and daughter #3 is removed . They each have their own account--and way too many webkinz! The oldest would INSIST on keeping it--she is a die hard webkinz addict and quite emotionally invested in the whole thing. I am trying to help her to NOT be so emotional about it, so having this pet would not help in that respect at all! The others would want it, of course, but are not as "crazy" about the whole collecting angle.

If I sell it, I will NEVER tell them I had it--not to be deceptive, but to avoid the whole ordeal. Daughter #1 would be wayyyyy too emotional. They would be very spoiled in their Easter baskets! If I do keep it, Mommy found it so it is rightfully hers, just as if one of them bought a pack with their money it would belong to them. I just need to decide...

You are all awesome to help me out!

Help!!!!

I'm not a mom either, but I can tell you that I have two brothers, and one sister. I wouldn't sell it, but make an account for your three girls to share. That way, they can also check up on their panda.

I can see the pre-teen wanting to keep it, but at that age they understand the value of things, but don't yet grasp that money isn't indispensable. Good luck with whatever you choose! I wish I had your problem!
