My thought exactly. When you look at other websites for kids/families like Wizards101, LegoOnline, and Club Penguin they offer e-items only for purchase, except for the rare collectable. I must say that is one reason we have always stuck with Webkinz instead though, because in the end, I want to have something tangible for the money.

I think it's sad too. Even though I have a few estore pets, I won't buy them exclusively. I like the plushes the best. I would have bought the Petal Puppy and Sun Bear, and definitely the Camel, but I won't if they cost double on eBay because of scarcity. I wish retailers would figure out that scarcity leads to a big secondary market but not necessarily higher profits for the company itself.

You know, I've been less obsessed with Webkinz for the past few months- I haven't bought any since March, and some of you older users have probably noticed that I have hardly ever been on.
In fact, right now, I'm prefering the plushies to the actual online pets and site. The site is kind of boring for me. I prefer games that you can actually connect and chat with other members on... easily, at least.
I do not want Webkinz to just be online. The plushes are what I like best about it. So Ganz, you might lose at least one member if you make it too hard to get plushies.

I agree with you there. I really enjoy the getting the Plushies along with the online version. Personally, I would rather have the plush version along with the virtual version, instead of just an online thing. Because once the trend passes by, you will always have the plushies.

I really hope this is just a temporary thing, I was really looking forward to the Puppy! Many of my local retailers aren't getting in the newer pets, and are carrying fewer wekinz in general. Sigh, hopefully this is just a phase.

Sounds like a phase-out of plush to me, too. I can understand why they'd rather sell estore pets only, for higher profits with much less effort. I won't be buying them, though.

Ganz could shut down the website at any moment (the tags say 'Ganz reserves the right to discontinue webkinz.com at any time without prior notice) and I'd feel awfully stupid having paid for something that doesn't exist. At least I'll always be able to pet my plushies.

Oh no. No no no no no no NO! I MUST HAVE THAT MOHAWK MONKEY!!!!!!!!!

But didn't they say the same thing about the Hippie Hippo? I found one at Hallmark about 2 months after.

I really hope that they aren't slowly getting rid of the plushies. That would be really bad, and i wouldn't stand for it. Like LakeTrio, I will now bang my head on the keyboard;

This is really upsetting news. I will not buy e-store pets (no offense to anyone who does). My daughters cannot snuggle up with e-store pets when they go to sleep at night, nor can they have tea parties with them or take them on all-day trips to gramma's house. I really hope they reconsider their decision.
