The items will be retired/sent to the Curio Shop during a general maintenance where all the time zones are down. No one will get any "heads up" as to which one it finally is.

The fact that it is being retired to the Curio Shop is no big deal as we could just buy it when it shows up there. It's that "at least one" item that will be completely retired that is bugging me.

I just hope it is one of the oldest themes as that is what I am concentrating on. Pleeeeease!!

I think it is the Ichiban theme. The bed, table and seats, are NOT listed in the catalog at Webkinz Newz! Neither are the mats or window. It isn't listed as a theme choice either for a search. And, it is the latest theme on sale in the W shop..

I still need the bed and window and storage chest. Hope I have enough KC!..

I think it will be the kid theme because the long lost kid sink is already a curio only item.

I just hope it isn't the Country theme . . . I love that one when I get some weird rare that doesn't really go with any other theme. Somehow that one always works, I think.

I wonder if the Swamp theme might go? I hope not -- even though it's kind of hard to do more than one room with it. I LOVE the wallpaper for that one especially.

But Kids, Baseball and Atlantis could go and I wouldn't even bother buying pieces before they retired. Especially the Atlantis theme -- it seems so redundant when all the underwater Webkinz are really underwater now. Any new rares or PSIs that would go with the Atlantis theme wouldn't go in a regular room now anyway!

Wow... I really dislike it when they retire themes. Well, with the exception of the Cat theme. I wasn't honestly sorry to see that one go...

Don't worry, it won't be that one. That is a very recent theme - just a few months old, if I remember right.

I'm going to guess the sweets n treats theme, probably because it doesn't have as many items as some other themes and they seem to retire the smaller themes first.
I feel like announcing it but not revealing the theme is to encourage people to go to the wshop and purchase all of the items, using up all of one's kinzcash, and then they'd release like the colossal movie screen to regular members and they'd need fast kinzcash and would then have to buy more products or something in order to get the kc back quickly. I don't understand why they would announce a retirement, but not the theme. At least when they retired the cat theme, they let everyone know a week ahead of time so everyone could get the items they wanted! I am tempted to go buy more items from my favorite themes, but at the same time I don't want to deplete my kc. And true there are items I love, but don't have extras of because I assume they'll be at the wshop for when I need them.

I was looking through the different themes today. Someone earlier mentioned that previously retired themes were all small, so I counted the number of items in the different themes. I did not include themes that I remember being added in the last two years. Here are my findings; I'm starting with the smallest theme (I can't remember the proper names for all the themes). I also took note as to which of these had items added to the theme in more recent times. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong with any of them, or if I missed anything.

Cheerleader: 10
Diner: 11 - Sign added
Classroom: 13
Baseball: 14
Candy: 15 Chocolate room divider added
Beach: 16 Picnic cooler added
Kids: 16
Frog/swamp: 16
Wizard: 17
Pop Star: 17 Sandwich maker added
Jungle: 18
Country: 18
Atlantis: 18
Blue Sky: 19
Fantasy: 19
Winter/ice: 20
Space: 21
Ballerina: 21
Garage/car: 22
Football: 22
Pirate: 22 Dogbeard picture added
Rock Star: 23
Funky Girl: 28 Rug added

I also took note of the graphics - some of them definitely look older than the others. The ones that I got this impression of were the baseball and football themes, the diner theme, the kids theme, the candy theme, as well as the cheerleader theme.

Then I did a bit of reasoning and putting all the info together. I can't see them retiring the classroom theme, with more people doing classes to get recess and wanting to make classrooms, and there isn't anything else like it. I also can't see them retiring the diner theme - it has a newer sign, and again, there isn't anything else like it.

That would leave the most likely contenders (in my opinion) the cheerleader theme, the baseball theme, the candy theme, and the kids theme. They are all smaller themes with older looking graphics, and no newer items added.

I made two new rooms today with the cheerleader and the baseball theme. I also bought a few pieces of the kids theme that I like. I already have the candy theme. I guess I'll find out if I was right....
