I think I know why they're doing this, It's to push more E-store Sales. Think about it why make plushies when you can just sell Pixels .

If I remember correctly this problem occurred with the beanie babies - and a lot of parents and grandparents quit trying to find them - too much hassle - not worth standing in line for a chance to get one.
I personally think limiting availability is going to have a negative affect on Ganz ! they will be going from one extreme to the other - first they flooded the market and you could
find them everywhere. And now ??

Thanks for the reassuring info Justin

I definitely do NOT like this at all. Is Ganz TRYING to get rid of webkinz altogether?

Ganz is probably trying to push the e-store, but I am not buying anything from it. The plushies are too cute (well most of them ) Why waste your money on pixels and not real items? I also wish they still made clothing, perfume, mousepads, etc. Plus, I am not planning on going on tail town or amazing world.

Me either. Ganz is going to lose me as a coutomer if they keep this up.

I know. Ganz, you made a HUGE mistake. Really? 3 pets? C'mon, at LEAST 5....

Maybe Ganz is trying make more people buy from the estore and less from stores............

Maybe, but that is stupid. Most parents say. "No! You cant physiclly do anything with it. What a waste. Estore. hmph."

Worst...pet...ever.



Well, the other part of this is we are on year 6 of the Wekinz phenom. Anyone older than fifteen will remember Beanie Babies had their heyday for about the same amount of time...AND Beanie Baby collecting now seems like a comparatively cheap hobby when you take into account Deluxe memberships and EStore purchases and that Webkinz generally go $10 to $25 a pop. Not to mention kids that started with this at about age 7 are aging out. No wonder they've started airing commercials.
Yeah..........

It is probably a smart move on their part since it costs way too much for Ganz to ship out all the new ones they produce, but if this happens, my husband won't be keen on me ordering online. I wish I could so I might have to end Webkinz or just get one a year
BUT I DON'T WANNA BE REDUCED TO ONE A YEAR EITHER!!

They will lose me...
