Default Unanswered: when a pet is retired

I apologize for asking so many questions. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone in the "real world" who is a web-head (as I have taken to calling myself!).

I have been going back thru old posts and reading to aquaint myself with as much info as possible. I see lots of posts about retired pets. People are upset they are retiring so many, so fast.

If you have a pet and it gets retired, can you still play with it online? I just wondered because someone mentioned buying one, getting home from the store and finding out it was being retired. I would think that having one that is retired means you have one that is now going to be more valuable? Because it will be harder to find?

Again, I apologize for asking so many questions.

oh, ok. I was curios because I live near a every friday flea market and there is a stand that sells the webz. The prices are cheaper than the 1 store I have bought from. I thought maybe they were old or retired or something. He had little ones for 7 dollars. I am going to look tomorrow to see if they are retired or just cheap.

you can still play with a pet that is retired. it just mean that ganz isn't making that pet anymore. so if you want it its a good idea to get now than later because it will be harder to find.

When a pet is retired you can still play with it online.Retired just means that ganz isn't making any more of that pet.Ganz retires them so they can make new pets.When a pet is retired it will get more valueable.

Yup! They just mean, they don't sell them at stores. If I got a cheeky dog today, i could still play it even though its been retired for years!

I see that you question has been answered. I just wanted to add that one reason people have been upset about it is because there were a few Webbies that were listed as retired right after they were released. That seemed like a strange idea. Ganz did not even give those pets a chance to see how well they would sell. It could also be that with this economy they wanted to drive sales immediately. I love Webkinz, but I don't like feeling like I have to buy the next one that I see or I may miss out. All of this was also around the time that they opened the e-store. They have to make marketing decisions that they feel are best for the future of their company. I am sure that retiring a critter that was just released has got to drive sales as soon as they hit the shelves.
