I know! So strange! They retire new ones - to make more new ones. It makes no sense! And I in fact liked the Samoyed.

This is how I see this retirement; Ganz knows that it is hard to get some of the pets that just come out, so they are retiring them quickly to cut down on the number of people that have them, so when they decide to make them the Pet of the Month there won't be many out there.

That is just my opinion, maybe right, maybe wrong, who knows?

Wow! I wasn't suprised about the Striped Snake because it came out this month but the Toco Toucan and Crocodile?! Now they are going overboard! It's bad enough they release and retire some in the same month.. but now before it even comes out?! That's ridiculous.. GANZ is getting on my nerves now!

Cool Re: Ganz Retires 5 More Webkinz, Some Not Even Released!

I am sad that there is a possibilty that people may not be able to get their hands on the toucan and the alligator. Shame on you, Ganz! I think Ganz is being greedy. How in the world can you retire something that isnt yet available??? I am very disappointed right now! I really wanted the tocan and alligator-hopefully I will find them.

:acs:That is one of the meanest things I've heard of on Webkinz, and it's usually a really nice site!!!! Luckily for me, when a Webkinz retires, they're in stores months after they retire in my area. They're still selling Gorilla's at one store!:leoliz:

Of course, I don't have any first hand data, this is just my assumption. Is Ganz stock traded in the US stock market? I may have to check in to that if I can pause my efforts to get that darn Polar Plunge trophy!!

Thank you for the "Insider News"

This is getting ridiculous. My first thought is that they're doing this now just to get attention, although Greenbean phrases the situation a lot better.
I KNOW that they are a business and need to get money to *stay* in business, but I'm getting quite sick of their antics, especially considering that I can't afford Webkinz if they cost any more (the KinzStyle clothes and charms are bad enough...)
