My kids expect a plushy, so I can at this point never buy any of these e-pets, which I find kind-of a scam anyway.
I am also not trying to be rude but I think more people should read this and pay attention to it. GANZ never has your interests at heart, they are a business and they only do things to get your money. All they care about is their bottom line- they don't care if you're spending your last dime on their product instead of food for your family.

The only reason they extended the sale of the Christmas trees is because someone in the executive office made the realization that, "Hey- we're not even manufacturing this VIRTUAL item- all we have to do is flip a digit in a database and we will have as many in stock as we want.... If we limit this VIRTUAL item to only 500 items then the maximum amount we can make is $2500. Why stop there when we can make $x00000000 instead???? (slurp, drool.... money....)

People, remember on EACH and EVERY tag for the plushes you buy it clearly states, "GANZ reserves the right to modify and/or discontinue the website webkinz . com or access thereto, at any time without notice." That means one day Samuel or Howard GANZ can wake up one morning, decide that this venture is no longer worth the trouble, and close shop, throw all his employees out on the street and walk away scott-free with pocketfuls of your cash- and there's nothing you can do about it.

In addition, all your hard-earned money you used to purchase these virtual toys will be gone- and you will have nothing to show for it.

After reading that GANZ had a net loss of 2 MILLION DOLLARS in the past 6 MONTHS, my family took a hard look at our Webkinz 'wants'...

We would feel a lot better if GANZ made a home-version of the Webkinz program that we could play when the site was down. It would be good if we could port all our settings over so that when the site was down we could still play with the games and have all our items. Then we would feel a lot better about buying virtual-only items.

However the way it stands now, we pay GANZ and they hold ALL THE CARDS and make all the rules to suit themselves. When you think about it, they have the perfect business setup.

Just a little food for thought, the next time you're rushing to punch your credit card number into the eStore's payment window....

Didn't go back to read anyone else, but the lede in your story is misleading - it is NOT $5 for both the table and chairs, it is $5 for EACH.

I have the sushi bar and chair set - if you can afford it,

I recommend purchase of 1 set of extra chairs.


I have created a restaurant with the store cashier section, and the low table from the oriental room! I added two of the outdoor / indoor table with the cooking fire in the middle. I don't have software to put an image here.... sorry... when my page is up again you can see it at kayemilam's my page

I don't remember paying 17,000 for it when it first came out. It must have been a lot less for Deluxe Adv Members.
This IS Correct, it IS only 5000 eStore points.

you do receive 'some' chairs with the sushi bar - but 2 extras are helpful.

DESCRIPTION - Sushi Bar & 4 Chairs Set -- SO IT COMES WITH 4 CHAIRS.... but I recommend having 6 chairs.

That said.... I've thought that the price for 2 more was too high.... and never added them!

MAYBE WE COULD START COMMENTS TO THEM ASKING FOR THE PURCHASE OF SOFTWARE? I ALSO HAVE A LOT INVESTED IN WEBKINZ, AND A VERY LARGE ROOM, BUT I DONATE 99% OF MY PETS TO CHARITY. I AM INTO THE GAMES AND DECORATING.

LET'S ADD THIS TO COMMENTS WHILE THEY ALLOW THEM... AND TO THE COMMENTS IN THE NEWSPAPER - ASK FOR SOFTWARE.... I'D BUY IT but want to use online too.

I WROTE TO WEBKINZ TODAY IN THE COMMENTS SECTION - ASKING FOR OFFLINE VERSION OF SOFTWARE THAT WE CAN COMBINE WITH THE ONLINE VERSION.

I FEEL THAT WITH THE INVESTMENT IN THE KIDS PARK AND OTHER NEW FEATURES THAT THEY ARE DEMONSTRATING A COMMITMENT.

THE INCREASED PROMOTION OF THE E-STORE ALSO TELLS ME THAT THEY ARE WORKING CREATIVELY TO INCREASE SALES - SOME of us can afford it... some can't... I have been rethinking and decided to set up a budget - I can't afford to continue to purchase everything - so plan to focus on a very special item each month, or two pets a month.

Thank you for thoughtful post. It was off topic - but timing was appropriate - Cindy
