It seems likely that these decisions have to do with a combination of a desire to maximize profits and certain production issues.

The retirement of certain pets may be due to the fact that the quantity of each pet that must be produced to fill the demand is staggering and Ganz may not be able to find enough manufacturers who can handle the volume needed without sacrificing quality. Certain pets are also harder/more expensive to produce than others.

However, the number of new pets being released can only be attributed to a marketing strategy.

In the past many retailers found themselves with large amounts of older pets that weren't selling. The 2 for 1 sales and Webkinz Day Extravaganza event helped retailers unload a lot of these overstocked pets.

It seems logical that increasing the number of new pets will continue to drive the volume of sales up while at the same time avoiding the over-supply of any one pet that caused problems for retailers in the past.

There is a minimum that even small shop owners must meet for their orders. Ordering a smaller number of each pet from a larger assortment is certainly preferable to having to order a larger number of only a few pets.

These are just my thoughts. I have no way of really knowing why Ganz makes the decisions they do!

I don't understand why they are retiring pets that just come out and haven't even came out yet they should retire the older ones first.I can't continue to spend so much money on Webkinz.I have been limiting to around 2 per month with the increasing gas prices and food prices.I can't afford to buy more than that anymore.

Ganz REALLY needs to think more.
They just can't come up with an idea then throw it down the drain!!!
Thats probably the only thing that ticks me off about them.
They should just make limited edition webkinz for goodness-sake...

What in Webkinz World is going on? We have waiting patiently for the Toucan and the Croc. Now I won't even be able to buy them? Or does that mean they will release one shipment? Why tell us about them if we won't be able to buy them? Isn't that false advertisment? Does anyone know the true story behind all this mess? Is it because all the factories in China were destroyed? Thats what I heard but not from what i would consider a good source.

Thanks for the update, cause this is pretty annoying. At this rate, I might just quit trying to collect Webkinz because there is no way they should be able to retire the new webkinz in order to make newer ones as they so say is necessary. This is garbage that they keep feeding us. Good luck to Ganz with this stunt, but they won't get much of my buisness anymore!
