Default Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

I was about to get the golden and gobbler turkey, now the only thing I have to do is decide what color I want, the gold or the redish turkey? LOL! So weird, why did GANZ do this anyway that I don't understand. I mean if you can't get a gobbler turkey in your area and can't go on the estore, then what is the advantage? LOL I got estore and I think I am going with the gold turkey because, to me it is more special.

Actually i hope the do...
6-7 new pets a month,... Most people do not buy them all so, Now they will have another reason not to buy them all
and it is a big pain tray to collect all the new 6-7 PSI Having less of them to collect saves me some headache

If that is their idea, then all they had to do was put the gobbler turkey in the Estore for Thanksgiving time. Problem solved (that and ebay for those who can't find it locally). But a lot of us liked the idea of having both, but don't want the same PSI twice. I just think it was lazy of them. Just change the color of a pet, not have to make a new PSI and have people buy it.

Yup, definitely going to skip this one.

Agreed. Definitely lazy.

How annoying! I hope it's the last time they do it, too! I don't have either of these pets, but I do NOT want it to happen in the future for other pets.

A pet's PSI and PSF are unique! You don't want another pet having it too! What ever happened to "This food is made specially for the ______"?

Exactly! Put the Gobbler Turkey in the eStore, not a new, different turkey with the same PSI. They put other plushie pets in the eStore as online only, so I don't really understand the reasoning behind this. Obviously, it's not to increase sales (many of us won't buy it, if it has the same PSI), and I thought Ganz was always looking to increase sales ~ LOL!

For me, it's a start of not getting every single eStore pet, so I believe it's a sign, since my interest in WK has declined considerably over the last several weeks/months. In fact, now I may feel no need to get every single plushie pet either. It sure will save me lots of $$$.

I have the Gobbler Turkey, and I love the PSI and the food, but if I'd bought the Golden Turkey expecting to add to my Thanksgiving theme in some way, I would have been very disappointed. I feel sorry for anyone who was disappointed by this.

This seems to be a sure way that Ganz will shoot its own sales in the foot, if people can't be sure that they'll be getting something new and different.

Default Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

When Ganz first started to promote their estore pets - they made a HUGE stink about how the estore PSI's are far more intricate, detailed and just more "exciting". All you would hear about is "estore quality, estore quality, estore quality" blah blah blah.

Soooo....... What happened to that??? Where's the "estore quality" with this PSI??

Why would someone pay the SAME amount of money for a virtual online-only pet that has the same PSI as a actual toy plush that their child could hold and play with????

What a stupid idea Ganz. Makes no sense to me at all. Go back to offering better quality PSI's for your estore animals please.....
