How many webkinz do you have? 900? There aren't even that many webkinz!

(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!

That's like saying the world will end. We've been having tornados, earthquakes, etc. but the world won't end will it? xP LOL, that's a weird comparison

Thanks! I really want two of the June Webkinz and sometimes the stores I buy my Webkinz at don't have the ones I am looking for and now with less Webkinz at each store it's going to be even harder. This is not a very smart move, Ganz!

I'm sorry but that just made me want to cry. You are so right. Somehow I think Webkinz is going downhill. All that money I've spent... I love the plushies. They can't get rid of them.
*Sigh* in a way it kind of is the end of the world...

I hope that Webkinz is going to end. If it isn't and they are just cutting back on the plush so every one will buy from the estore i will just let my last year go up and deal with the limitations. If they keep it up there will be lots of people dealing with the limitations.

sorry i meant not going to end
