The updated part that FIA put in nearer the bottom said that they are basically Webkinz just a different 'line' for the same site -- they have a feature code that can be unlocked in Webkinz World -- it will give you a wish token, 1 estore quality pet specific item {so different than what the other panda has, either item and/or quality and item} plus 1 piece of 'signature room theme' furniture. They are supposed to be looking a lot more realistic than 'regular' webkinz plushes are/have been but whether Ganz felt that warranted a doubling or more of price who knows. Then there's the Caring Valley line coming out {opens up another section in WW along with tree saplings and so forth} plus the backpack clips that will also have codes {but haven't been announced yet for what/to get what with those codes}.

I have to admit, out of the three ideas I've read today, this one is the most disconcerting (worrying) one. While I doubt they'd get rid of the normal Webkinz for a signature line (you wouldn't cut your bread and butter for steak and caviar), there are many questions we don't know about this line:

1. Where's the "W" going to be located? Right now, the panda looks a lot like other pandas you'll see in stores that are not Webkinz.

2. Why $25-$30? Again, as above, right now the panda looks like a regular one you'd see for about $10-$15 in a store. In the current economy, I'm not sure parents (or collectors) are going to want to dish out that much money for a special pet if the money is going to some binary codes that create points of light that fade away after the membership ends.

3. Exactly how large are these pets going to be? Again, if they're the same size as a regular Webkinz, it would bring to question why spend almost double than if you got just a regular Webkinz? Or, are they going to be the larger pets such as the Webkinz Jr. Pets?

***********************

The only other thing that concerns me is why they're releasing this line when they haven't released the Webkinz Jr. one that was promised a few months ago. Have they decided to not do that line? Right now, I have a few concerns that Ganz might be spreading themselves too thin with all these new lines and releasing at least 4 pets a month. It's going to be interesting to see how this one turns out as well as what their signature items are going to be.

I like the Panda but don't want my daughter to start down a new path at that cost.
I'll have to see if it comes with something really great. Although I have a hard time getting Wish Tokens it isn't worth double the price of a Webkinz pet.

I can't even log in again right now. This is a strange time (Tues. Evening not Wed. morning) for being closed down.

The panda's pretty cute, but the price is way too high! If you look at toy stores they have several realistic panda toys that cute for about $15, and some of them come with stuff like DVD's or bottles. I know you pay more for the online stuff, but it seems too much.

Plus the main reason I like Webkinz isn't that they look like animals. It's that they look like weirdo cartoony animals. Like Googles. What animal is that even supposed to be? lol

If I was a kid I probably wouldn't want to spend that much on the panda. If I had a kid I probably wouldn't want them to buy it, either. I think Ganz missed the mark on this one.

I'm still curious what the pets and items look like!

I agree with Hiltonii and cloudsnapper completely.

I thought maybe the proceeds would go to WWF.
