I already spent over 5000 kc on buying room themes!!! and i can't sell my other wshops because i have almost none (i only have the kids toy box and beach ice box but those might retire too so i need to keep them) so I might have to sell rare-but-not-rares like the medieval trophy pedestal and bee costume and other. . . i wish ganz will give us better hints and not just "one of the older themes" !!!

I'm going to guess that the Kids Theme will go next.

I'm reposting this, as I missed an item that was added to a theme - the jungle blender, and I couldn't seem to locate the edit button. Thanks CMV_W for pointing this out.

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 Blender added
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....

There have been quite a few room design contests before. One of the first ones was a fall room design contest, and there have been a number of others. The one you're referring to wasn't specifically a beach theme, if I remember right, but rather a vacation theme. The winner, again if I'm remembering right, had made an indoor swimming pool using blue flooring surrounded by mats to create the illusion of a pool. The most recent contest is to design a classroom for the new sea dragon - it runs this weekend.

So I don't think that is a hint. Actually I doubt that theme is the one that will retire. It's a big theme, quite popular, and has a newer item - the cooler.

They are going to make most of the theme CSO. They have said that at least one item would retire for good.

I have had one more thought today about why I think the kid's theme will NOT be the one to retire:

The gumball machine is part of the kids theme. Many pets have that as their favorite toy, so Ganz will want to keep it available so that you may buy it to make your pets happy.

I'm still betting on the baseball theme. Have my stuff hoarded...despite my cautions to everyone not to get carried away. Only one item will be retired for good--everything else will be available in the Curio Shop for a good long while. Many like me are buying some extra items for trade, so if you become gifted, you'll be able to sweet talk us out of one, no doubt, to complete your set. This is really not a cause for panic or unusual buying behavior, unless you have lots of KC and want to gamble and buy some stuff that might become retired for trading.

Someone asked why items have to retire. I'm sure it's to make room for all the new themes and keep the size of WW down a bit. And so much more is being added than taken away. I can't complain, personally, about what is being done. And I am very happy for the warning this time. Yes, it's not completely specific, but how about this mystery and intrique in our lives? There are pluses and minuses to this. If we all knew which items, we'd all buy a kazillion and then they would have no value to speak of. I'm really OK with the way Ganz has handled this.

And please don't call Ganz service reps trying to find out. Hasn't been all that long that we've had live reps to reach without leaving a message and waiting for a call back. Let's not abuse them, and take away from them helping others with legitimate problems in adopting pets, stuck items, etc. They need the reps time! And it might backfire--we might lose our live reps answering the phones or lose the announcement that a theme is retiring next time. You can write to Ganz thru the feedback form and express your wishes without taking away from others. It might have MORE impact that way!

I am now thinking it's the diner... they could definitely make an updated diner for sure! Something more elegant or modern like the new themes have been.

You do have a point about the themes. I mean, I was a member when the candy theme came out, same with cheerleading theme. That was February 2007 and May 2007. The other themes are very old looking, because the are old.
