My daughter has one American Girl doll (gift from her uncle) so I know what you mean but they are in business to make money. Considering the average Wii game is $40-50, $4 for a chair is no big deal. I am working on a new planetarium room with some ideas and suggestions from you guys:

Oh, that is very creative!! I didn't think the new Blast Off Rocket Bed fit well with any theme -- but you integrated it nicely there.

Ummmm, instead of the cluster of gemstone tables, how about just one of them next to a Lunar Moon Bed? Possibly a Flying Saucer parked there too?

You can't please all the people all of the time......
I personally love the items (especially the suit or armor) and will probably buy a few codes for myself, my children and maybe my niece and nephew. Thank you to Ganz for offering another dimension to the online experience.

I can't believe that someone would PAY for a virtual item! $9.00 for a super bed?!?!?! It's amazing what some people would do, no offense to those who have already bought items, but seriously: aren't there better things to spend your money on? I can't imagine how much trouble I would be making for myself if I spent real money on a virtual item.

That is just completely crazy to me.

I personally don't know what to think. I was SOOO hoping the items would be things we could buy with Kinzcash. I mean even if it was really high, it might be worth it in kC to save for a long time. I know I pay money for the Webkinz, but personally, I love the stuffed animals. And I'm a mom! LOL. At least if WW ever ends, I'll still have the stuffed animals. I'va laready put a ton of money into Webkinz. I have 87 animals, and my son has 60 some. So, between the two of us (in less than a year, I'll add), we have 150+ animals.
I love the waterfall, but I doubt I'll ever buy it. I've stopped buying trading cards, cause I mostly get cash. I mean, I'd rather spend the money on another pet and get the exclsuives and stuff with it, and now that I can trade, I'm slowly getting all the exclusives I didn't get because I got tons of vortex storage holes instead of what I really wanted.
If it was 10000KC for the waterfall, we'll I'd be saving like crazy. Plus, think about it, they could still make a ton if it was KC for the items, because some people who don't have the patience to do gardens or Quizzy's would go out and get more pets.

And some of these new items like lip gloss andbody mist?!? I understand the clothes, and maybe the mouse pads, but other stuff, and now paying for VIRTUAL things for money?!? Ganz is starting to be like this other company i know, has anyone heard of American girl dolls? They are way to much, $118.00!!! Hello!
I am not for this new Ganz concept of buying VIRTUAL items with REAL money, but I am not sure exactly how you can relate that to American Girls. I have 2 daughters and they both have 3 American Girl dolls each with plenty of the clothing. These are REAL items. They are collectibles to us. They play with them often and I will put them away for their children once they outgrow them. They are expensive but they truly are very well made as well as the clothing. I have purchased a couple of the Target brand "American Girl" items for their dolls, but I can honestly say they are not made as nice. Anyway, before I get way off track here, I will not be buying any of these new Virtual items from the e-Store, but I can understand some people wanting to and doing so. My biggest concern about purchasing them is what is Ganz's response going to be when your virtual items locks up or disappears. Is it going to be the old canned response of "Sorry - tough luck"?!?!?!?!?!??!?!

Do you people realize you're spending your money on things that only exist in a virtual world? It's like buying an invisible carpet or something! It'd be cool if they sold these items with furniture small enough for your plush webkinz, but can you really use virtual items in the real world? However, if you only want it for the code, they should lower the prices! $9.00 for a "super bed" is a waste of money! I mean, it's a virtual bed! What happened to webkinz being kids friendly? Now, it seems like Ganz is just greedy for cash and don't even care about all of the kids playing webkinz!
