If they are taking all of these things off, they BETTER have something good coming to WW, not for Amazing Town or Tall Tales.

I am mad!
I liked the potm.
This goes to prove ganz is focusing more on Tails towns and amazing world.

So I'm almost a little afraid to be the odd one out here (don't throw anything at me!) But, really, I don't mind any of these changes.

Signature pets bothered me from the start. From my point of view, mixing the more realistic faces of animals with cartoonish versions ruined some of the ambiance in Webkinz World. I like some consistency within an online world. especially in the design of characters. I definitely love variety, but I like it if the characters came from a similar artistic style. I was initially attracted to WW because of the childlike and unrealistic qualities. It's nice to find an virtual world that doesn't take itself too seriously, yet also attracts am older crowd.

POTM seemed cool at first, but I don't think it was thought out very well. As a previous WI member said, they were using pets that had been out for a while so that they could re-market them. Nothing inherently wrong with re-sparking interest in an old pet, but frustrating for all who already had the pet and felt like their pet is not really being celebrated as pet of the month because it isn't new to an account.

I am in my 20s and I love WW. However, I am also excited to see what Tail Towns is all about. I don't think that the quality of WW will change on account of a few changes to products. Even without two new Websites, it seemed WW was trying to do too much. With less product lines to focus on, they have more time for improving what is already here (esp the website itself).

And my final thoughts: What is wrong with Ganz exploring other possibilities? They aren't replacing WW, they are just expanding with other creative endeavors. The world would be pretty boring and status quo if businesses never tried anything new. Maybe the new Websites will totally bomb or, maybe some of you will find that you really like them more than you thought you might. You won't know if you don't try. Either way, if all of you remain loyal to WW, then it would also be a silly business venture for Ganz to abolish what is so profitable. I don't think you guys need to worry about WW going anywhere anytime soon!

What's going to happen to the Pet of the Month exclusives once the Pets of the Month are gone?

This news comes in perfect timing to Tail Towns launch tomorrow. That is for sure.

I am not in the least bit surprised about Webkinz Jr. That site was HUGE let down.

We paid 36$ for a stuffy..got on the site a total of 3 times. Complete Failure in my books.

As for the other Webkinz sales pitches, as a Canadian consumer, I'm not surprised there either.
Who wants to pay upwards of 35 to 45$ for a stuffed animal with virtual benefits. I don't/didn't.
And, now Ganz has finally listened to the vast majority who who always complain that they
are pushing too much product on us. With free/non expiring accounts what do you expect them to do ??

I'll be happy with the few pets a month. Sad about seeing POTM go but reality check..
why would they continue to produce as much product when they are making WW 'free' (no more expiring accounts).

I don't think this is a good idea. I don't really want to join Tail Towns, mainly because Webkinz are adorable, and the figurines for TT? ..... Not my style.

I'm hoping they don't make WW only enjoyable for little, LITTLE kids. :/

*throws tomato at* I'm kidding
I honestly agree with you some-what, but I liked the siggies.
I really agree with your last paragraph thing, that's 100% true.
