It is priced too high. I did buy the KNIGHT SUIT of armor....wish I read the fine print -- can't send it to anyone! AND I can't order just one chair for $4 without adding something else -- req min $5....

Now we know why WEbkinz didn't want us selling items on ebay -- coz they planned to fleece us in a webkinz store. AT least now we can swap in the Clubhouses. I have every exclusive now and nearly every bed. Just need the ancient civ pool.

Doesn't Ganz's user agreement say that all the virtual items/images belong to them? If we buy something at the eStore is it actually "buying" it if it doesn't "belong" to us? I think they should change the "buy" option to a "rent" option. That is what we will be doing. We will be "renting" it for the life of our account. If our account expires or gets terminated (or WW shuts down), then the things we "bought" at the eStore are no longer ours (if they ever were to begin with). They will then belong to the cyberspace recycle bin (trashed!) LOL!

For that much money they should also come with a game or something more interactive. Like every time you sit on the chair it could give you 2 KinzCash (usually my mystery prize amount on the Wheel of Wow! LOL!). The train could come with a train game where you could actually control the train. The waterfall could come with a fishing game. The pool could come with a game where you could dive for coins!

I really like all of the items in the eStore. Maybe this is the way that Ganz is trying to make money to keep the website going. If it doesn't work they will probably start charging a lot more for the real items like the stuffed animals. It is really fun to play in Webkinz World and I hope the WW website keeps on going and going like the energizer bunny!

This is a great idea if this is what they need to do to keep the costs down for their "real" items. I hope they sell virtual charms so everyone will get a chance at being able to get into the charm forest. Or maybe they could start producing the charms again. It has been way too long since I have seen them in any of the stores.

So the reason they stopped the sale of virtual items on eBay wasn't because it was immoral, or wrong, or that the prices were ridiculous for virtual items. The reason was so that they themselves could sell virtual items for ridiculous prices. Genius Ganz, genius!

I can't imagine GANZ is in need of more money! If anything they're profits are through the roof. Not hurting for profit one bit.

Sorry, but id rather spend that $$ on family. How in the world could Ganz even think about this mess...especially when the economy is not showing signs of getting better.. Are they not paying attention to it?

Its just pathetic.. its hard enough coming up with $4 a gallon of gas to fill up our vehicles. That and child care cost and lousy work pay. LOL.. I mean I cant complain b/c I am not part of that working force (work from the home), but seriously.. we deserve to not have to worry about a virtual item..

Now.. if Ganz would sell gas... for kinzcash.. id be more up to that LOL

Smile Re: BREAKING NEWS: Webkinz eStore is Now Open!

I think it is realy cool but.... i think the maximum u should pay for some thing in the eStore should be like $2.00!! and they should have packages like buy 3 chairs together and get $1 off or something. but i would feel bad if they changed the prices when ppl already bought things .
