My bet is on the baseball theme, as it is partially covered by the newer sports theme and is an old theme with older graphics, nothing animated and it doesn't really mix well with other themes. The space theme goes well with the TC stuff and special space beds--those won't be discontinued. And it's been featured heavily lately in the Curio Shop and is offered on sale today. At 8 AM KT, the chair (with legs, not the beanbag) v is on sale on Deluxe accounts for $102 instead of $120.

I would also like to caution those thinking of mounting a campaign against Ganz for not telling us which theme. I read all the posts last night and thought about this very carefully. I think it will likely backfire. Next time, Ganz won't give us any warning again! Stop and think:

1. Why do you care? Only one item will no longer be available. If you have built a room or buy one of each item (very doable--it's not an expensive set), you will have it. You can have it. You just don't know which item will be retired so you can buy 10 for trading down the road. That's it, isn't it? BUT--if Ganz tells us what is retiring, EVERYONE will buy a bunch and then it will lose its value. You can't have it both ways. I think Ganz doesn't tell us, so you will have the opportunity if you are clever, to acquire something valuable.

2. Ganz customer service reps are there to help us with problems in WW. They are not there for us to badger about Ganz policies. You can leave feedback on several forums about your dissatisfaction. I'm sure they have thought this through carefully, and the Webkinz Newz announcement was a step to try to be more satisfying to their customers who didn't like the sudden retirement with no warning.

3. This leaves us some mystery and intrique and something to ponder about. There can be positives to this, not just negatives. Look how many of us have gotten caught up in thinking about this!

My other thought is that the theme that might be retired from the Curio Shop and no longer offered would be the country theme. I don't believe it will be the dog or the cat as there are too many of those Webkinz still being issued and they are popular pieces. There are newer wooden pieces still active in the W shop to replace the old wagon wheel pieces and dark wooden items. But I've stocked up on all three...just in case. Hey, I never said I wasn't capable of hoarding stuff that might be valuable to trade!

I think it will be one of these: Kid's room, beach room or the sweets and treats.

I knda think it's the sky theme. It seems like it's been around for a long time, and I don't think that they would retire the kid's theme because it's kinda the "beginner or 'I have no money' theme"

I find this annoying for one simple reason--we're talking about virtual items and virtual money, for goodness sake! Why can't Ganz give us a head's up--"We're retiring the XXX Theme at the end of the day on XXX," and give everyone a chance to buy the items? Why should Ganz care which items are rare? They don't get any more money for them. At least a few hints would be nice.

They have new people joining all the time, so some folks won't have any of the older items. Just my two cents worth. But I agree that complaining could backfire and result in them just retiring things with no warning next time.

Come on, Ganz--give us Webkinz Lovers a couple of clues!

Maybe that is the piece they will retire from the W-shop and the curio shop -- the chair! Because everyone gets one when they become a member.

I doubt the kids theme. Some pieces are already in the curio shop, that's the only reason it may go. Ganz is unpredictable. I wouldn't be surprised if randomly got rid of a super cool theme. I'm looking for the dog beds right now, cuz i luv them!
