I was thinking that EXACT same thing. You can get these in the trading rooms all the time. I know that the replicas of really old stuff isn't liked by those that have them (although it shouldn't really bring down the value of the real ones in my opinion since the replicas can't be kinz posted) BUT how about a not-so-recently-retired item?? I would have to say the same ones that you mentioned Katie!

I don't understand why they are making a replica of this one already - I have so many already - I can't even get rid of them in the trading rooms - blah

Hmm, I'm sort of disappointed. Seriously, an ice-cream tree? Most people who like webkinz will have joined early enough to get that. Well, I guess Ganz will notice when hardly anyone buys them.

With that being said it is VERY clear that WW is trying to make thing have no $ value by introducing these retired items.
It is a bit crazy to see the REAL cash some of this stuff sells for on other sites.

I seem to be talking in circles here.
i just wish they understood that collecting is a HUGE big deal to some of us and this just destroys that.
yeah I was wondering if this was upsetting people at all. people work hard for the things they have in wi... whether buying them or trading for them.. this just reduces the value of things. i wish they would cut it out. they seem to have gotten really greedy.

So... I'm thinking that this means that we should focus more on collecting retired psi's, because it's much less likely that Ganz will make replicas of those!

I agree with what most people are saying, but I'm looking at this another way,too. those people who want to buy it probably want more than 1,right? Some might not even have heard of this item! Not eveyone has enough estore points to afford multiple icecream trees (or whatever the replica item is) When you want an item you don't have yet, or want more of, you probably go to the trading room. Wouldn't they trade anything for more icecream trees? (a lot of people have the originals, I see)
