Thumbs down Omg Ganz What Is Going On??

GANZ WHAT IN THE WORLD?? ok so first u make series 1 trading cards... ok cool. Then series 2... now series 3??? ok all Ganz is trying to do is make money by tricking other people! i mean seriously!! then they come out w/ webkinz figurines!! ooo wow! NOT! $7 for a 3 inch toy??? seriously!! ok guys it doesn't cost that much to make a bunch of cards... so why charge us so much for stupid trading cards?? and virtual items don't really cost that much to make... so why are they charging people TEN DOLLARS for a virtual bed in the webkinz e-store??? its STUPID!! they are making money off of our mistakes! the mistakes: WE BUY THIS JUNK! Oh and the lipgloss and mousepads and bookmarks... little kids don't really want a webkinz bookmark (i really dont think that most little kids even want to read) all they want is the code!! so why charge so much for a decorated piece of paper with a magnet glued to it?? and now they are making webkinz clothes (which also comes with a code!) Ganz is making little kids ADDICTED!!! and addicted is NOT a good thing! sure i understand getting a couple of trading cards... but when a kid goes out to buy like 6 or 7 packs of cards... it's practically GIVING ganz money, putting it right in their hands! and now they even started selling pets WITHOUT the plushtoy! how low can u go ganz?? pretty low... to the level of now taking money from little kids who don't know any better.
sry for my venting... lol i just had to get it out there...it makes me so upset... if u totally disagree its ok... i just wanted to state my opinion so that someone will read... if u did read this thanks! i know that i can go on and on.... lol

Wow, $7 for a figurine. That is crazy and I thought paying $3.99 was bad. I do buy them for my granddaughter because she plays with them. She even carries them all around with her and that is probably why I buy them for her.

I don't blame you for wanting to vent, it sure does help most of the time.

Swimforlife, I understand how you feel. Yes my family are MASS Webkinz collectors. We tend to stay away from the overly expensive shops who always seem to have an interesting amount of mark up. I'd like to see more stores carry Webkinz so some of us who don't live in the more populated areas arn't "stuck" going to the "trendy" stores. We also network with extended family on which stores have the best prices or deals and those are the places that get our money. Whoever is closest goes. We also don't buy the clothes, bookmarks, and some of the other items we've seen. Code or no code. The up-side of all this buying? When the 40 yr. old, 10 yr. old, and 4 yr. old can't relate to anything, we always trot out the pets and can play for hours. Hope this helps.

I brought trading series 1 and all I got was one pet and the 80 cards and the challenge cards but was missing the extra cards to collect. Spend over 500.00 and couldn't get everythings for that series. I don't buy clothes,and only brought 2 figuries. I think it's unfair that the good stuff is in the E SHOP! They should stick to the webkinz websites and the webkinz. I'm collecting the Webkinz I can see and play with in my hands.

No one is holding a gun to your head!
I do agree that some of the items are a little over priced (the e-store mainly)
I have an Uncle who has spent over $30 000.00 on Harry Potter stuff, pieces from the movie set, cards etc... That is was makes him happy.

I don't know about where you live but it cost me over $65.00 to take my kids and I to a movie, it's only 2 hours of entertainment (and not always).
It's all about what makes you happy. I spend my evenings on webkinz, we play together as a family, share our latest trophy wins, trade our items with each other, it's our fun and entertainmant.

You are more than entitled to share your feelings, but I think it's totally up to the preson buying the items.
I am not about to stop anytime soon.
Bring on series 4 cards and I am there!

ohh thanks for the rep points my friends tried to get a free pet.. they bought a bunch of packs... but didnt get any pet lol... so technically it's not really a 'free' pet, cause i pay for every pack you bought to try to find that code for the pet. lol
