Definitely sad about POTM ending, I hope they'll let us get some of those items some other way.
I'd rather see the eStore gone, seems like too much 'good' stuff costs extra and while we'd love some of them, paying money for virtual items strikes me as a waste (just IMO). We don't like the lion or owl but might have to buy them anyhow.

This is just dead depressing. The pet of the month activities are my favorite things in Webkinz, especially the videos. I adore the endangered pets, and I love the small signature pets. What is so special about this Tail Towns and "Amazing World" stuff that they have to take away the things I love about Webkinz? Next thing you know, we won't have an Academy any more either. I'm going to go cry in the corner now. :cry:

Webkinz just keeps getting better and better, first the amazing E-store, then the fun fun Deluxe, then the incredibly fun Mazin' Hamsters, then the ultra pretty map of Kinzville. Now no more overpriced whimsy free realistic pets, or annoying to look at Webkinz Jr. I can't wait to see what comes next.MOO

I don't like the fact that they're doing away with the Pet of the Month. I think too much focus has been taken away from WW and placed into other areas but that's just my personal opinion.

I just sat down and tallied things up...I have purchased EVERY endangered pet. I have purchased 9 out of 13 of the small signature pet. I have purchased enough pets of the month so that I have EVERY pet of the month item, and I even have duplicates of the ones I really like, like the donut seeds. I have purchased pet of the month items from the eStore for EVERY video they have done. By discontinuing these lines, Webkinz is kissing goodbye a large chunk of my money! That is not smart!

I'm going back to my crying corner. I'm going to cry myself to sleep and pretend this day never happened.

Oh, and they are doing all this to focus more on Tail Towns and "Amazing World"? It is March 8, the official launch day for Tail Towns, and the site isn't even ready yet. Hmph!

I understand about the signature pets, they're way too expensive, even they're pretty, but why cancel the POTM thing? I love the songs and all the extra stuff you get

It's very odd to me to see so many negative posts about Webkinz jr. Webkinz jr is designed for under 5 and I doubt there are webkinz insiders that are that age- so of course the site would not interest people on here. However, as a parent, I can say that the site is phenomenal and is VERY CHEAP for learning and entertainment purposes for young children. Most educational toys are at least $30 and the plush pets for webkinz jr are incredibly soft and cuddly. I haven't heard 1 complaint from a child under 5 about webkinz jr. and THOSE are the voices I would want to hear from concerning the site and line of pets. I have sat with my children amazed at what you can learn on the webkinz jr site. I have given them as presents and have had nothing but positive feedback. So, I would be sad to see it go. But then again, this "news" is not from Ganz, so I will wait to hear what the future of this and other lines is straight from them.

I think they should close WW all together and call it a day, they ruined the fun in the site

I believe that would be a true disgrace.

I can only hope that the webkinzjr accounts will continue to work. Can't imagine telling a child that they can't play with their stuffed friend anymore.
I can understand the Pet of the Month program in a way since the big question each month is always, "Is it safe to adopt my POTM ?"
