Default Unanswered: Why Does GANZ Make Webkinz so Fast Now?

Well what I think is right now, ALL BUISNESSES/PEOPLE are not doing very good with the whole money crisis at hand. They figure, hey why not? This is a big fad right now and we could also use the money. The more webkinz they make the more chances people will buy them, either because that is their favorite animal or they are a super collector. Now the eStore....that is something I NEVER thought I would see. My definition of webkinz..
Web*kinz- A stuffed animal you purchase and enter a code online at webkinz.com to get the pet vurtually.
NOW, the eStore items, yes are a rip off in my oppinion, but the pets is not right! What, did they run out of fabric? I mean, what do you think?

I think you are absolutely correct. The more webkinz Ganz Makes the more money people spend. The eStore is kind of a rip off. Actually it is a ripoff. I mean basically its 12.99 or something like that for numbers and letters. Besides it's much more fun to have the plush pet. My hometown store has webkinz for like 7.00 for Bigkinz and 5.00 for little. We don't have that big of a selection. Yes you are right, Ganz ran out of fur and fabric!

I don't believe Ganz ran out of fabric. I think Ganz realized that the profit margin on virtual items is higher than the plush animals. It doesn't make it right.

In reference to the continued release of items, Ganz planned the release of these plushies months in advance. They're already made awaiting release. They can't stop that now.

Do I think that many people are in a difficult financial situation. I am curious to see if people will continue to spend as much as they have been on Webkinz. Fortunately I did buy several webbies over the summer and have them stashed away for my sons and well as 2 for my husband!

Well, I think the amount of webkinz they are putting out is just to get a variety of webkinz out there... and they do know that lots of us will buy them. So I think they come out very fast, but I don't feel the need to buy the ones I don't like...

The estore I don't like, so I just don't buy from.. but some people like that and that is good for them... but I think ganz sees that they can profit off the virtual item sales, so they will continue to do that too. Which is fine by me, I don't have any intention of purchasing that kinda stuff.. My son would be too disappointed w/ a pet with out a plushie.. And I'd never waste real money on something that would only be seen in my computer screen.. i need something to show for it.. LOL...

But that is just me... People who don't like the plushies laying around, or try to collect all the webkinz or whatever, that is great they can do that

Not forced to buy them

I like the estore. While personally yes I think some things are alittle too high. I love to buy the charms. I mean come on 1.50 and I don't have to worry about what I am going to do with the little charm. I think the price of the pets are high considering if you go to the store you get the stuffed animal and the code. I think the codes alone should be half the price or they should ship you the stuffie in the mail without the code and email you the virtual one like they have been doing. It all comes down to what people are willing to pay and how many. If they are making a big profit with the estore (which they probably are considering there are pets you can only get there) then they have no plans of lowering any prices.

I read somewhere on here the other day that they thought Ganz should get rid of the plush all together, and just sell codes...not too bad of an idea for us adults, but for kids I don't think that would work too well, the plush is what my kids want, I personally like the pets on the estore.

As for the other items, it makes me mad ~ I think Ganz is WAY PAST DUE on updating their wshop. How long has it been since they added lots of new themes, items, etc.? Well, they came up with a bunch of new stuff but we have to pay for them! To me that's CRAZY!!!

I have over 70 and plan to take mine to the hospital children"s ward. ( All but the Horses and miniature schnauzer and parrot when it comes out )Since They are bran new I figure why not try to put a smile on a kids face .. ( course i hope they are not disappointed that there is no code ) but then again my neigbors kids only buy the webkinz for the toy since they like certain animals... my first one was the pegasus , then horse , all the horses .. I still need to log in my albino .

Like you said... it's a business ploy. Webkinz is at the height of popularity, they are taking advantage of it. They create a virtual pet. Whether 20 people or 500 people buy it, no big difference, it's still pixellation, and either way they still turn a profit. Whereas if they make a physical product that no one buys, then they risk losing some profit.

People are allowed to spend money on whatever makes them happy. It's the stuffed animals that make me happier than their virtual image, so I like buying the plushies. This weekend I need a lot to help cheer my up from this week, so I plan on buying 4 for myself, and 2 as gifts.

If the virtual e-store stuff makes them happy, then I'm rooting them on.
It's not much different than purchasing a movie. Still a colored image to dance across a screen.
And I can understand the appeal, only a few people will actually have those items, so it's really cool having something that's not widespread
