ganz is worried about profits for ebay sales ect. they are giving these people free rain with this retirement stuff to ask way over what ganz is making -- I think they are going in the oposite direction then trying to keep a handle on scalper type people.

what are they thinking... kaching, kaching -- if they think they are going to get more -- wait I guess people will buy them. I am not a big collecter but was looking forward to the toucan and the alligator.. I wonder if we will even see them.. who knows..

I have a question: Why doesn't Ganz retire the older ones from 2005 and 2006?! I mean, these early retirements are crazy!

It's really a shame. I'm sure it's all to get us to buy more. But how can ANYONE keep up anymore!! I'd rather 1-2 new ones a month. First 11 new releases for August, then the new trading cards, figurines, and now this... I wanted the toucan, but was going to wait and not buy any next month, because there are quite a few I like in August, and I just can't afford to buy them all. Not with gas prices what they are right now. I guess I'll really have to think hard about which ones I want the most, because I can no longer get all of them (not that I wanted all, but I did like 6 of the new ones). But to retire them this quick. It just doesn't make sense. I wonder if we'll even see them in the stores. The stores here in this area, are just finally getting the June pets. They seem to go to the big chain stores first (like Justice) and then the smaller business stores last. And a lot of the smaller business owners aren't going to get them anymore, because by the time they get the new ones in, they've been out in other stores for several weeks. So no one buys from them anymore. Personally, I'm not going to buy mine from the big chains anymore like Justice, Limited, too, and FYI. For one thing, they are too high priced, and I just don't think it's fair to the little business owners. I'll just wait longer. I love webkinz, but I don't like Ganz's tactics at all.

Are the crocodiles and Toco Toucans still being sent to retailers though? Homecrafters, my Webkinz Shop, had the Lil Kinz Unicorn there so if the Toucan and Crocodile retired itll definitely have them.

Unless it was not sent to them.... then we have a prolem.

Thanks for the info Justin!

Wow! I already felt like Ganz was using these early retirements we've seen lately to push sales, but I never expected them to retire pets before they even became available. If Ganz is retiring these pets due to some unexpected glitch or production problem, they should make a statement to that effect, otherwise they will have many unhappy and angry customers. It makes me feel a little exploited by the company, but you know what? We saw some American Cocker Spaniels in the local Hallmark Tuesday, so...yup, I'm going back today to see if they're still there! And that's what they're counting on, isn't it???

Maybe they should stop saying "retired" and just say "canceled." Maybe they should reduce the massive amount of new products and return to the old days of moderation?

WOW- Extremely WOW! I am so surprised that they would do this. I have a feeling they're going to be retiring a lot more of them now

Good question re: stock market. Does anyone know if Ganz is a publicly traded corporation?
