So true! and that place will most likely be the e-Store.

I'm getting so tired of them announcing "Get them while you can!" Just to see them turn back up. They've already had two days when all the birthstone pets were up for sale killing the trade value each time, the estore POTM items stick around after the month has ended, (making that "last day" statement a joke) not to mention re-issuing the same seasonal pets, (both plush and estore). And now even offering "replica" long retired items.

I used to find great pleasure in being a collector, but I've learned that nothing is really ever retired, (other than webkinz day trophies and prints) The last straw for me was the addition of the Glam Boutique theme to the estore. I spent a fortune on the Spritzes and Lip Glosses (before retail stores slashed the prices!) and although they are now hard to find, I was so happy to have collected the entire theme, with extras for friends and trade. And now it shows up in the estore?

Incidents like these, (oh, and let's not forget the surprising re-release of the unicorn) has totally ruined collecting for me. I still like to get the items I need for my own WW home, but I no longer consider anything truly retired or "priceless".

Oops, I meant to make you all feel better about these things leaving, (in that I'm sure we'll see them again) but I got a little off track. So get back ON track.....I think it could be the Space theme retiring. I'm sure that no one is buying that stuff at the Curio Shop since there are so many other themes now. And what's bigger than space? Not sure if that's considered "rare" though?

I think many children don't really care if an item is rare or not, they just buy what they like. My daughter has turned down many chances to buy rares from Arte, because she doesn't like the item. She doesn't buy to collect everything or buy to trade, she only, only, only buys what she likes. If I buy a rare item for her (like Science) that she doesn't like, she will sell it at the WShop immediately. I think there are probably other children like her. I think those of us who are "kids at heart" care more about the rares than the children do. I know I do!

So true, kids only want what THEY like, it doesn't matter to them whether it "matches", or is rare, or the cost. It's us adults (loosely used, lol) who are missing collection pieces that will be saddened by the loss of a rare theme.

I agree it's sad to lose a rare, and I REALLY hope they at least give us a chance to collect all the pieces before it's retired. So many of us are missing many pieces in all of the themes it would be a shame to not at least give us a chance to get them. Here's hoping we see the retired theme constantly at the CS over the next two weeks!

Oh Nnnnnnnnno!!!! I'm trying to do rare theme rooms! I'm not done! Really not done!!!

Please let it be the science theme! That's the only one that is complete...

I have mixed emotions about this announcement. I, too, still need items from several themes (well, to complete rooms for each of our family's 5 accounts!), but it is also kind of exciting to think that we may soon have a theme that is no longer available. It would definitely make it more special. However, I hope we will be given enough notice and opportunity to snatch up the items we may still need before they are gone. I tried for nearly TWO YEARS to get the medieval bed. I kept worrying that they would retire it before I was able to buy it! I FINALLY got it! PHEW! So, I kind of still suspect that it may be the Medieval theme...

Personally, I could part the easiest with the Science Theme. However, I don't have the globe!!! Both of my sons have a complete room (except for the globe), and I do think it is a really cute theme for boys. It's fun to put the exclusive spaceship in there with it.

My main issue with retiring either the Science or Medieval themes is that they are two of the most reasonably priced themes. You can actually buy the items without completely breaking your KC bank! So, that will be the biggest loss, in my opinion.

I love the Medieval Theme and use the plain side table in a lot of different rooms. I wish there were more "basic" items like that available. I also love the floor. Looks good with the funky girl walls, of all things!

I pity those who don't know about WI. Before I found this site, finding rares was SO frustrating for me!!!

FYI...this is my first actual post! Hope I did it right....

Wouldn't mind to see an older rare theme retired...make way for the newer ones...And yes...guessed we will be trying to stock up a bit...but, we have so many of the rare items in our accounts...It would be a welcome addition to look forward to trading again....Good for the older members of WW..sad for the newer ones..Thanks so much for the update!!

And..too, I agree...if a rare theme is retired..guessing that replicas will show up in the E-store....Just more out of pocket money for... used to be KC items....

The last two days the Curio Shop has had the Scence theme for sale. But a few days they have been selling Medieval. This could also be throwing us off. We better watch for another rare theme slipped in before the next update.

Default Re: More Clues on Retiring Theme, It's a Rare Theme!

oh no!!! I need a three more dining chairs for my Egyptian themed room and the pool for the Ancient Civilizations room!!!

I'm on board with retiring the Science theme... I have two pieces 'cause they're pretty cool but it's not something that interests me at all... after that I'd be okay with the Aztek theme... tempting to start picking up additional pieces of other stuff for trade though... just need to figure out how to trade for stuff I need!

Welcome to
I have found that Everyone here is Awesome & Very Helpful

As to the Rare theme retiring?? I admit it makes me sad... I have been active in Webkinz since Christmas 08 and trying to complete all rare themes. I still have holes in each room as it is not always easy to find them for sale when I can be online to get them from Arte.
If it wasn't for this website's tracking info & help, I would be in real trouble.
Thanks for the heads up!! Here is hoping Ganz lets Arte sell us all what we may need to complete our collections before they are gone forever.
