Unanswered: Is there any official info on W-Cares?
Just wondering if there has been any offical news on W-Cares? I have not seen the pets at any Wallgreens and I haven't heard of any new ones here either. Have they been replaced with the Caring Valley Pets? If so, what of the W-Cares prizes. Will they go up in value? Should I be having a deeper appreciaiton for that Statue in my garden, or that W-Cares Jacket. I think that Hat is my absolute favorite and I wouldn't think of trading it now. Does anyone know for sure?
There are still W-cares at my nearest Walgreens but then again, we haven't gotten the caring valley pets around yet. I'd hold on to your things just in case. They're already pretty high trading value so be careful if you are intending on trading them. Good luck finding info!
Not sure if there is anything official or not. There are 2 Walgreens in the town I work in. One of them still has the webkinz care pets, but hasn't gotten any new ones in lately. The other store says they will not be getting them anymore.
I was kinda wondering if the care valley was replacing the w cares! Would be nice to know!
I still have not been able to find any of the klips yet and my daughter is dying to have a few for her book bag!
I would hold on to my wcares stuff! I wouldn't dream of trading them for anything right now. Just wait and see!
Thank you both for the quick response. I am going to have to check the WIGEV for values, just because! I asked a friend from up north to check them out where they are from and they say there are few still hanging around, but nothing new. That is why I am thinking the caring valley pets are replacing the W-Cares. I have not seen any kinz clips in Florida either, I would love one just to get into the forest area, and the prizes look adorable too.
I went back through the WI front page articles. There was an article showing the Caring Valley prizes, and it said that you can get some of the W-Cares prizes with the Caring Valley pets, but that they've been renamed. It mentioned the W-Cares teddy bear, armoire, and TV as being renamed.
I think it's safe to assume that W-Cares will be gone soon (I'm very unhappy about this).
Also, I think members have seen the Caring Valley pets at their local Hallmark stores, and they cost like $10.99. And I'm not sure if they're Lil'Kinz like the W-Cares.
I think you are right, I do remember something about the prizes being renamed. It is a shame, because I never got tired of the w-cares prizes and the price of those lil kinz was so fair. It seems like in these tough times, making those caring valley pets more expensive, the kinz clips, if you can find them are expensive and then those exclusive pets.....well it does seem like Ganz is getting very greedy. And lets not even get me started on Webkinz Jr., it sure does seem like it's the adults buying those expensive stuffies, and I don't think they will ever become collectable like the early webkinz did. I sure do hope they keep the site for very young ones and the adults get too easily bored.
Catsinparadise, I'm always hesitant to think of Ganz as being greedy. They are a business, and in these tough times every business needs to change, tweak things, in order to stay in business. Also, think about it, they employ some unbelievably creative people, with all of the new features, themes, and animals that come out. And imagine how stale and boring Webkinz would get after a while, if everything stayed the same!
Having said that, I pass on most of the newer, more expensive stuff. Being an adult, I'm not easily swayed by their "enticements." I'm a little ticked that W-Cares is being phased out. I loved that you could buy a Lil'Kinz for $6.99, and there were extra prizes, and it gave prizes to other random members. It was a great deal all around.
I think it's all about making smart choices, making the right choices for you. You get what you want out of the experience, right? If you can enjoy WW without a lot of the expensive stuff, then that's great!!!!!
