Oh great....what fun, now I have to contact the place I go get webbies and ask them to hold on to the pets I want for July. (when they get them in of course)



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

I think they are phasing out plushies, and pushing for all e-store pets. It's the only explanation that fits.

Hmm, the silver lining here seems to be that there will be less Mohawk Monkeys around...

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.

This is what I was afraid of and I can see it coming. Many of our stores in our area, and we live in a fairly large area, don't sell Webkinz anymore. There are only a few stores left except for Justice for Girls and even they aren't getting in all the new Webkinz. 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

I agree. That totally makes sense. How scary and sad though! Plushies are so cute and nice to have...and I feel like Ganz will lose business if they move to all estore. Although I personally purchase estore pets, they are a bit of a waste of money with no physical item...without selling plushes they'll lose nearly half their users!
