Hi, the Panda is so rare and special I would not sell it, I'm a Mom but my children are grown, my DD has a webkinz account and my granddaughter does too, we all take care of each others, i would open an account for the panda, let each of your girls decorate a room for the Panda and when they go to play with it or take care of it they can go in the room they decorated for the Panda and dress it the way they like, it would be like when the family takes care of the family pet, it is a hard decision to make, you know your girls best and you know what will be best for your family , good luck and let us know what you decided to do.
There is the off chance you could get more?? Ok, so that was far reaching, so how about this idea. Sell it on ebay - hopefully for the $300 someone mentioned and use that money to buy more cards. Thus upping the chance for everyone to get one. I think a box of cards goes for 50-70. I'm not sure there is a magical pet in every box, but the box I bought had one for series three. Good luck and you are right, hard decision!
I'm not a mom but i watch little kids a lot and they would fight a lot over things they are brother and sister and if you try to share it may not go well, i would say sell it. if i had it i would sell it so can give money to my brother.
This really is a tough decision and a difficult place to be in. I have two girls and there is no way I could ever decide how to split the pet up either. I had a friend that found a Magical Retriever and sold it on eBay when it first came out. She is very happy with the decision. My initial reaction was shock because I didn't think that I could never sell something as rare as that. After I thought about it for a bit, I realized I would have much rather had the cash to fund our addiction.
If the situation was different and values had dropped, I'd definitely consider keeping it for myself If the going rate is $300, I agree - sell it while it's hot!
I'm not a mom but having a little brother has taught me what can happen when a webbie pops up in a trading card. If I were you, I wouldn't sell it. Sure they're going for a lot but they're so rare that you might be disappointed if you don't find another one. I agree with a lot of people, create a new account just for the panda. All agree on the name, room, etc. Hopefully, everyone will be happy with the decision. Also, try talking to your kids but make it clear that none of them can have it all to themselves. I just think that you and your kids should make the decision together. Good luck with you mystical panda!
I would probably sell it - never even let them know. Then let them each pick out a really special one, maybe an outfit, etc. But, the advice about having an account just for that webkinz was a good idea too.
First, Congrats on that wonderful find. I am also a mom, of 4. We all have an account except one, she is tooooo young. It is your card, you can do as you choose. I found a monkey on my card and the kids got mad. I would hate to see if I got something so rare! I would either sell it and take the money to get more cards and pets. Or I would adopt it on my own account and get the kids their own cards to see if they get something. You know deep down that if one of the kids got a pet, they would keep it and wouldn't care if anyone was jealous or even think of giving it up to ebay or another family member much less a shared account.

If you do sell it, buy everyone a super special pet, cards and clothes, but don't tell them where the money came from.

I would advise against selling it. No matter how hard you try to keep it a secret, your girls are bound to find out, and I wouldn't like to be around when they do! Secrets always get found out in the end.
Also, selling it just seems wrong to me. It's against the spirit in which it was given to you. It was meant to be a really special thrill, a pet to be treasured, and not a quick profit. In fact, although it is impossible to enforce such a rule, I believe that it is against your user agreement with WW.
I would either sell it or open it on a new account ~ whichever I personally felt more comfortable with. In this case I would probably sell it since the kids would all fight over it. Or I would just tell them that I found it and love it and want to keep it for my own, lol.
