I don't like this, GANZ- maybe you should rethink what your customer's reactions may be?

That isnt good news at all! Well looks like officially Ganz has lost it
I hope this is just a summer time thing or it will be even more difficult to buy webkinz!
Hope they sort it out soon

Wow! I'm just sick about this. My family and I have spent thousands of dollars over the past 5 years on Webkinz anything. This recent change of what is available to buy each month is both ridiculous and scary. I'm trying to stay positive but can't help but wonder what it's all about. I hope Ganz will speak up soon regarding this so that "we" can all stop worrying about this.

This really freaks me out, I really hope they release some more info, or you all find out more. Hopefully like others said it's only for summer/temporary.

I think I can read the writing on the wall...they're hoping to discontinue any and all physical merchandise and convert to online-only sales. For both plush pets and eStore pets, the same conceptual work and expense goes into making a pet, but for plush pets, they also have to produce the pet and ship it. (Plus lately the trend seems to be having to redesign the virtual pet so it matches the plush better, which only means more work and expense.)

I mean, look at it historically...they got rid of most of the physical merchandise piece by piece. Lil Kinz, trading cards, physical figurines, book marks, lip gloss and body spray, clothing for Webkinz, clothing for people (though you can still special order a shirt through the eStore), and most recently endangered signatures and small signatures. They can see that the economy is terrible, but die-hard Webkinz lovers still manage to acquire their favorite pets and items. So they figure they will get a bigger percentage of the retail price if there is no middleman, and no physical product.

I hate to be so cynical. It's not like me, really! But I think this is the beginning of the end. I'm going to start taking screen shots of all my stuff, so when they eventually pull the plug, they at least can't take away my ownership of my pixels!

They probably did this to make room (in everyone's wallets) for Tail Towns or whatever.

This will sound even more cynical, but I will believe that when (and more likely if) that website ever gets launched! What are we now, nearly three months past the advertised launch date?

OK so does this mean that even regular webkinz that aren't the limited ones will be limited too?

I don't know if I'm falling for this one . I bought a Hippie Hippo from eBay for higher-than-usual price thinking that they were rare, just to find out that you could find them in many stores for regular price.
