Oh good! The POTM is still on. I don't really mind the Signature small and endangered are gone. I agree that it was too much.

This is truly excellent news to hear!!! So glad that Ganz will keep the POTM! This makes me very happy. Thank you, Ganz!

Very glad about POTM! I'm still sorry to see the Small Siggies go though. They were affordable and the larger ones don't seem worth the price (jmo).

I agree to certain extent but when a major distributor "hears" something or sees a trend (items missing from upcoming inventory order sheets for example), there's usually more than a grain of truth to it. It could have been on the table (maybe still is) or they put the word out to see what kind of reaction they get.

I'm glad we're warned ahead of time about the Signature line. I may pick up an Endangered pet since they are soon to be "extinct."

I never said it didn't have more than a grain of truth. In fact, the rumor mill often has info that has more than a grain of truth in it. But that doesn't change the fact that it was not information direct from Ganz.

I'm so relieved! It's overwhelming having so many new pets released in one month, and one only has so much of a budget to spend on toys a month!
As long as the same standards of maintaining the regular Webkinz website are maintained, then I'm happy.

I didn't intend to upset or offend you. I just have a slightly different view of it. I don't read the rumor mill because that stuff comes from anyone and something like this could go unnoticed as it would have for me. I'm glad I can get a heads up whether it's official or not; I trust the source on the posting. I'm grateful for the news and updates on the front page as they are. Hope you have a good day!

WI's front page is always confirmed...and accurate...ganz probably saw this and let them know that they changed their mind on the POTM

now I am sure retailers will be happier with less items to bring in and sell...

See, statements like this are why I said this should have been in the rumor mill. Because it WAS NOT confirmed by Ganz. It was info from a third source and although Robert @ameriwade is a trusted source of information, it didn't get confirmed with Ganz and even the wording was misleading. I don't think Ganz would vamp up the POTM advertising only to drop it in 2 months. AND the CREATIVE DIRECTOR himself said their would be new POTM prizes. Why would he say that if they were discontinuing POTM?

I'm happy for those that were rallying for POTM to stay. Still sad to see the small sigs are gone. The big ones are too much money for a toy, the small were perfect.

I wonder how long Ganz will keep WK jr going since it won't have any money coming in from new pets. Seems like after a while when the excess stock of pets is sold down, that it would just become a money pit and they'd close it to cut losses eventually. Or I guess it would make a tax loss write off but I don't see that lasting long either.
