I had noticed that too... I think you are correct. Also, from the forum chatter, it seems to be the least favourite. I am only missing the Incubation Chamber... as are many collectors... last available April 25 2009!!! It better turn up over the next week!

I and grandkids have both won rares from cards so I was wondering about this too. I tend to get my cards by the box online, lol. I'm sorry to see any of the rares go mainly because I don't have them all yet. I like the science theme and have it in a couple of places. I think it suits my Tinkerpup well. It would also be nice to see more of then repeated during the day. It's hard for me to get on at work, because I don't dare unless on break. By the time I get home Webkinz think its night.

The more I think about this, the more I get upset at the way Ganz handles retiring themes/items.

This is supposed to be aimed at kids (although I know a lot of us are 'kids at heart'). Most places give you at least some warning before an item leaves.

I don't understand why Ganz can't announce a theme is retiring, make all the items available for a short period (maybe the weekend before) and let people get the items they need. Yes this would drop the 'value' of the item, but I would bet most kids aren't collecting to trade, they are collecting for themselves.

I don't know how to ask them, but I would really like Ganz to consider making whatever theme they are retiring available at Arte's over a weekend. With most themes having 16 items or less, you could do a different 'rare' each hour for a 48 hour period. That way people could fill out their collections, but you couldn't stock up too much.

Very practical solution! Perhaps many of us should suggest this in person...they tend to listen to the masses

I believe you forgot the "no theme" theme. I wish Ganz would retire those items and put in new interactive ones though I am really pleased with the most recent new themes!!!
