romance, treachery, and tails? hmmmmm. Sound like some wicked house wives club. I don't think I am biting and certainly not advocating that kind of description for my 14 yo DD in their probably target age group.

I do wonder if they will make it similar to Lego, WOW, and such where you buy the program to load with a code to activate. It would make the system run better.

I'm also guessing they want to tap into the farmville-type game craze going on. Problem with that is that why would people go to this site when they can just go play farmville totally free if they want to? I know you can spend money on it-but you don't have to in order to play it. If people don't like farming then there's cityville and a zillion others like these. The second thing I see happening is every teenager 13 and older running off for this new site due to the "romance factor" and less restrictive chat. To me this spells trouble. Thirteen is still way too young for a site based on this idea. I'm sure most parents will agree. How many kids know their parents email information by heart and will sign themselves up without asking permission? It would be so simple to do and they know it.

Final thought is: Thanks director for making all of us adult Webkinz players feel totally silly for playing on a "children's only" website. Sheesh. Way to alienate your adult members by saying that! Now I feel sheepish

I know the name tail towns is NOT adult or teenager at all! Who thought that up and approved it??? When I first heard the name I thought it must be for young kids. I thought of the animated movie An American Tail (Fievel--was a mouse and the main character). I pictured a whole bunch of mice. The name they give this new site does not go with the description they give at all.

VERY interesting! It sounds like it's pretty cool. I wonder what the "figurines" will be like. I want to check it out but am terrified at the same time. I seriously don't have the time/money to get "hooked" on another website game and I'm NOT leaving Webkinz. What to do, what to do?? Thanks for the informative update Justin!

I just hope that the little tail towns figures aren't expensive. If they're any more than what regular Webkinz cost then I'm not even bothering with it

Also is there any way to get a sneak peak as to what the figurines look like? Or what the whole Tail Towns is going to be like or look like? I hope it's not like farmville. It's weird how a long time ago me and a few other people suggested that Ganz make something for the older age group and here it is .

Yeah, no kidding, LOVE the free preview idea.
Before you buy a figurine, you can check out the world a little to see if you're even interested in the way it looks, how you move around, what games and features it has, etc.
But to tell you the truth, I'm too addicted to Webkinz and WI to take on another virtual world!
Even if it is geared more for the adults (which I am).

No one calling me "stew pit" in the park and lastly perhaps no more crying in Tail Town trading rooms????

Here's to giving it a try,

Sound like membership isn't free there since they are offering a free trial. I will just stick to webkinz.
