I wish everyone would stop complaining so much.
its not that people hate webkinz, we (at least i) feel like we are not getting our monies worth as it is. now they want more money *tsk tsk tsk*. as for people "complaining" we are just voicing our opinions as is our god given right . people need to be able to "get stuff off their chest" and have friendly people let them know they are not the only ones feeling that way, without feeling like someone is going to tell them not to do it.

anyway thats just my opinion

This increase seems to follow inflation. While unfortunately timed, leading into the holidays, I suspect that it is a step taken by Ganz thanks to material and labor costs. I do hope that the virtual Kinz prices hold steady on weekends and Wednesdays.

I consider that a number of retailers in my area run a gamut of prices so I'll hope for the best and brace for the worst.

Ya unfortunately, everything is getting more expensive it seems. The new, new Webkinz will be expensive, but I've seen some of the older ones for BOGO! Sweet!

Price point is one of the things that makes Webkinz so popular. It's affordable and fun.

"Affordable" as in, the cost of an initial plush is not that bad considering some other toys' costs whose prices to continue playing with them is a high-ticket value (videogames, LEGO, Calico Critters, etc).

If GANZ's site and plush toys were perfect, or at least had minimal problems, I would say that they're somewhat justified in raising the prices on a quality product considering their marketability.

But the site is always down, glitching or broken, the toys are often deformed and coming apart at the seams, and GANZ's sales attitude towards its loyal retailers is less than stellar (we're still waiting for September releases at our stores and it's almost the end of November). Add all this to them wanting to release way more pets per month than anyone is willing to afford in the first place, and they want to increase the price? I can see many people just dropping this altogether.

Anything purchased at the eStore is money thrown away. It costs real hard cash and you can't even sell it back within WW to get KC for anything: in other words, you're stuck with it. You don't even have anything to show for all these purchases if the site ever gets discontinued. Nothing whatsoever.

I can understand how production costs require more income to maintain. But as I said before, if the site was a real quality site and the product was real quality product, then it would be OK... But raising the prices on the pets at this point is just plain greedy.,... and GANZ is as greedy as companies get.

They are shooting themselves in the foot.

The cost of everything is going up, it was only a matter of time. Production costs go up therefore they have to charge more for the product to cover the production costs. Yes they are made in China, but the GLOBAL economy is in the toilet. The high price of gas doesn't help. Those webbies don't walk over from China, they have to be shipped here then trucked to distribution centres. It is unfortunate, but unfortunately, this is the economic climate we are in right now.
