I'm thinking that if they read through everyone's comments they'll see that they definately have to bring it back-too many of us will not be able to afford it...After all, this is money they are just getting for free-it isn't like they are giving us "real" anything for this money anyhow!

I cannot believe that they are taking away this option! It outrages me! I will NOT be purchasing a deluxe account due to this when my membership is up. I hope all families do not renew...and we show them how much they are really going to lose if they don't bring the family option back. I am very glad that I just had to renew our account before this happened!! Atleast we have till next April untill I see this....

NO FAMILY PLAN!! Nooooo...I don't like that. That's what my family and I used and it will be so expensive to get full deluxe benefits for four accounts..

This has made me cry and for all the little children and people that this is going to effect greatly!

WOW... many people where Deluxe, judging from this topic.
I never even began with Deluxe or Estore and now I'm glad I didn't... I never felt paying real money for virtual pixels was right. It's the plush animals that really interest me...

I'm really, really sorry for all the dissapointed families out there... I agree, taking away the family deluxe membership is crazy and unfair!!!

IMHO, Ganz made a bad business decision a year ago in creating a distinction among players- regular and deluxe. Rather than have a basic deluxe option at a fixed price, they confused the issue by offering different plans. Had they followed the model of the cell phone companies there might have been fewer “confused” customers. You can get a basic phone plan and add a line for an incremental amount for each additional line on the plan. As an enticement to purchase the pricey one account plan, they added an exclusive item available only with that plan. If the individual plan had been priced at $25 with the benefits of the deluxe menu, gift boxes, and a few estore points per month, more folks might have made that initial purchase. Additional accounts, up to a total of five accounts, could have been added at the time of the initial purchase for something like $5 per account per year. If deluxe had been only a benefit plan geared toward events and items within the world of Webkinz, people would have made the purchase. Another mistake might have been the addition of the extension of the accounts for a year without the addition of any pets.

When my Granddaughter gave me a Webbie 3 years ago, I was in complete awe of this fun, friendly virtual world. WOW! For the price of a pet (around $12 then), you could enter this magical world, play for an entire year and exercise your imagination no end. Gave them as gifts to young and old so that they could share in this imaginary world. What creativity, planning, programming and preparation had gone in to the development and maintenance of WW??? Simply amazing!! Also wondered how they could do it all with the revenues from toys….

Enter the estore and deluxe membership. The estore offered items not available elsewhere and for some players, they added to the fun. Then GANZ chose to sell online pets and become direct competitors with the retailers who are the source of their success. That really bothered me…. Why go to a store for your skunk when GANZ has it a few clicks away?

Personally, I’d like to see Webkinz continue to be an enterprise that Ganz views is good business. We all know that modern day collectibles, whether real or virtual, have a definite life span in the marketplace. This is such a bummer for me to confront the fact that someday GANZ can turn off the servers and POOF! There goes our wonderful little world…………………..
