This is downright terrible. I hope this doesn't continue! *crossed fingers*

Not too surprised by this move. When physical inventory remains high it means making some decisions. With the economy, I hope they consider lowering the estore prices but doesn't seem like they're going to if recent promotions are any indication.

I wonder why Ganz is doing this. I hope they give us a thorough explanation to why this is happening. I think we would all really appreciate that.

If I can't get the plushies anymore, I doubt I will add many more pets to my accounts. We have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on this hobby of ours. But a lot of the changes that Ganz is making is keeping us from putting as much into Webkinz.
Actually I would prefer the virtual stuff if the price weren't so high. I've got so many plushies that I rotate them by the month. I've given a ton to charity too. They are cute, but they do clutter things up. I could cheerfully pay 10 dollars for a regular virtual pet, and 15 for a virtual signature. I've passed on many pets because I just didn't know what I'd do with the plush, although the virtual was darling! However, the prices Ganz charges now for virtuals are just too high.

Anytime you walk into a store that sells webkinz you can find lots of old stock around. Supply is definitely higher then demand. It's a smart move to put less out of each. Think about it. If you clear out your inventory more and spend less because you are producing less then profits will be higher.

I know many don't think Ganz should be thinking about money but lets face it, if they don't, there will be no webkinz at all. They are a major corporation, profit has to be their priority if they want to survive especially now when people are spending less.

I'd also spend more online if they reduced the prices accordingly. I never understood how they figure an online only pet is worth as much as one that comes with a plush.

I'll keep this brief...Ganz is telling it's sales representatives that the reasoning behind this move is to 'create a frenzy' for webkinz...what they are really doing is throwing cold water on the frenzy that already existed among it's diehard collectors...i had to have one each of EVERY webkinz ever released thru December 2010...even the unimaginative e-store ones and the non-cute/non-cuddly ones...then they released the sparkling pegasus and made it impossible for me to get...and all of a sudden my complete collection would never be complete...immediately my fervor for one of each [7 webkinz including 4 sig pets a month] cooled to just having to have the cutest and cuddliest ones...with over 900 webkinz i personally adopted one at a time i hardly need ANY more webkinz....adopting is not even fun anymore...it was just the obsession of a diehard collector...they killed that and cut their sales to me down to about 2 regular webkinz a month...i should really thank them..this new move is making me reconsider buying any at all...i can easily keep playing webkinz with just a single deluxe membership yearly...is this what they want!?!...

We are going to see some greedy people taking advantage of this on Ebay. I think many shoos wll be selling that way.
