WI must be filled with people who take their gifts back to the store after Christmas and birthdays. Whatever happened to it's the thought that counts.
I'd completely agree with you if this was neopets giving an easter gift- cause neopets is free. Webkinz world is not free. They don't let you go there and play games/etc. without BUYING stuff- with money.... real money. And sometimes you don't even get what you paid for (adoption gifts) and they are like ohwell. so yeah, I think it's okay to be disappointed in a holiday gift- they come few and far between in the year and to get a wshop item is kinda sad. But I did look thru the past years (couldn't remember what all we got in 07) and it appears they repeat the eggs every year (plus this year springfest too), and "something" (this year the shoes- which I guess is better than the SAME ears as before- they did two colors and atleast they didn't go back to pink or white bunny ears!) -but in the past if I remember correctly it's been first year = nothing else, next year = marshmallow bunnies (worth a lot now!), and now this year =wshop flowers. so I guess it's just not as "good" as last year.

But I think it's okay to express disappointment in a website you have to pay to get into and get this stuff. If it were a FREE website that anyone could go to- I would completely agree with you. But your comments are the same as saying if you go to a restaurant and pay for a meal- don't complain if you get food you didn't want! Because after all it's a gift. No it's not a gift- it was paid for... just like webkinz world was paid for. Our parents do teach us to be grateful for gifts... this really isn't a gift. It's called a gfit- on a webiste you can only get on if you put out real $$.

(for instance gifts from WI are really gifts-- and should be grateful for anything, including the website itself which I am very grateful for. can't be compared to a website you have to pay to get on it)

Wow! I think the shoes are kind of cute! As for the tulips, I just bought like 20 of them to place around the periphery of a charm forest room I made! Well one more will be nice!

I have to agree too...get a gift shop item was a real let down. The shoes are cute but like others have said bunny ears would have been better. I wasn't around last year so I would of loved ears. Oh well it's a least a gift.

Well, I opened an Asian account so that I could get a jump on the Easter gifts. Was I disappointed when they turned out to be the chocolate eggs we have been catching and tulips which are available at the W-shop. At least for Valentine's Day the roses are unique and pretty. Same old tulips are blah! The shoes are cute, but why give the same old stuff for the other 2 items?
The Easter card is really cute, however. The butterflies fly in and out of the frame and the rabbit juggles the Easter eggs.
I took a picture, so I will post it.

She is going to beg me to give her my shoes for her other pets...I will probably let her have them, too. To her, it is the thrill of opening up that gift.
Thank you! You are right! It's a gift given in good spirit. Who knows, they may be saving the best stuff for next year! I was unable to recieve last years gift so I didn't get the chcolate eggs, and I think the egg shoes are adorable. The W- Shop item is a little odd, but, it's one less item we have to use our KinzCash on (as many have already said). Let's enjoy this present and our Easter!

True. Even though some don't like the gifts its fun to get a gift for Easter, Valentines Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and even Christmas!

Remember how happy the kids are to get these great gifts.

Be thankful for what you get and maybe you might get something great in return.


Happy BIrthday to Wi and Happy Easter to everyone!

God Bless you all!
