I'll miss the small siggys - loved them. The Endangered siggys were cute too. I didn't mind spending extra for those because it made people aware of what animals were actually endangered. I find the regular size siggys overpriced, and meaningless. Gonna Miss Those Critters.

YAYYYYYYYY. I'm so glad ganz is continuing POTM! I see no reason for them to discontinue that. But i feel the same way that they do on how many siggies where released each month.

Ok..so if I'm understanding this correctly, a rep told Robert that the POTM program will be ending. And that this news we read yesterday is just premature? As denimbutterfly pointed out; why would the CD make mention of new POTM items and why would they increase their advertisement? To get rid of the 'stale' pets is obvious..but is it so that they can start another, maybe just maybe a better program like the POTM? And, if they are going to stop (sometime sin MAY?) will Ganz officially announce it on their site?? DIRECTLY to us?? I've always loved getting my INFO from INSIDERS but it's time that Ganz communicates directly to us so that these 'misunderstandings' don't happen. Because this was released too early wasn't it?? It wasn't because Ganz changed their minds after seeing all of the reaction on this thread?? Is it??

Oh, and does webkinzjr actually work?? because when we had our monkey on there we could only get on a total of 3 times..should I adopt another Jr pet to re-activate my son's account or will it be a total let down for us??

And, I forgot to ask, does this mean that the value of the Webkinz Jr Plushes will go up since there won't be any in production? And, will Ganz offer an alternative, long term, like they have now where you can buy the virtual online animal? This I would like to know.

I wonder if the Ganz rep knew everything she shared with Ameriwade would wind up on the web before it was ever meant to be public? I know if I was that rep I'd think twice about what I shared from that point on.

Nothing against Ameriwade, I love the inside tips. Just looking at it from the reps POV might be different.

Thanks to Zameron and everyone for clearing up what transpired. I'm very happy about the POTM and admit I used to adopt a POTM almost every month. Then our accts got to be over 200 pets so I slowed down. But I'm definitely doing it again b/c you never know when they might discontinue something. Nothing should surprise me anymore w/ Ganz but they have a way of launching/dropping stuff in a big way, lol.

Thanks WI, you're doing a great job in keeping us informed and involved!

This all seems pretty messy to me. I think Ganz is biting off more than they can chew with two brand new sites.

Are they changing the target age group for webkinz? I always thought Webkinz was for everyone?

This is all quite confusing for me. Hopefully once I see Amazing World and Tail Towns it will make more sense.

I am hoping the same thing Pat...I am finding these shifting "targets" very confusing

This is how I see it...

The info will get out somehow and we will find out sooner or later. I believe that we have found out based on what Ameriwade was able to order. It is only a few months before the product (that is now ordered by retailers) is seen in stores. I love the "inside" info. It was accurate based on what was available to purchase by retailers. It could be that now Ganz will only offer pet of the month pets in the eStore and will not sell them as a "package" to retailers (the availability of buying POTM pets at retail stores could be gone--unless they still have old stock of that pet). It is also possible that the POTM program will be renamed and changed a little (or a lot) before the end of the year. Maybe the pets sitting and waiting in our closets will never be pets of the month? Maybe we will have to buy an on-line eStore pet in order to get "POTM" advantages in the future??? These are all what could happen (not what will happen). Ganz seems to be changing WW and it seems like the POTM program will continue in some way, but maybe not the way we forsee?

Webkinz "target" was always six to twelve. Even though I really feel there is in no way a real age limit for thinks like Webkinz, My Little Pony, or Sesame Street, many people do disagree. Those new sites are for the teens and adults who think Webkinz is only for kids, because there are in fact people like that, including the parents of some teens on WI.MOO
