Great...How come Ganz can make like 5 items a week for the e-store but can't come out with a new W shop theme once a month?
Because this is 100% pure profit for them with no production money going out except to pay the artist and the money they can make on it is much better than what they would do on the existing site. The estore will grow at a huge rate compared to the site mainly because of the money making ability. I think as long as people are purchasing stuff from the estore they will make more and more stuff for it. Its working for them so why not. I just can't justify buying items from the estore because you can't do anything with them other than put them in your webkinz world house. The pets are different to me because you can move around the whole site with those..but the items to me are not the way I want to spend my money. I don't spend that much time in my house on WW..and if I am the only one seeing what I bought..it seems pointless to me. I do buy the figures and charms from them because I don't like looking for these items in stores..I can never find them.
I agree with Tula. I have bought quite a few things that I love from the estore but they are usually cars or charms and a few pets. I wish they could be sent as gifts. Just like your own house, sometimes you get bored and need a change. If you could send them to friends so you could redecorate would be nice. Otherwise, they sit in your dock FOREVER! I have to say, the creators are very imaginative and make some really cool items. These new items are good examples!!
I'm not keen on the 'artwork' - I've always been more of a 'realist' than an 'impressioninst' anyway... I do like the furniture and will probably get a couple pieces to go with my oversized chair. I LOVE that dino slide, though. I will definately be getting one of those- it will complete my Amusement Park room. Plus I won't have to trade for a Panda slide once I get that so it's a double bonus!
I have to say I'm a bit disappointed in all the new e-store stuff too.
I understand that it is pure profit, and I do have a Deluxe membership and have bought a few things off the e-store, but right now, I'm only spending what I get with my membership. I can't afford to buy all this extra stuff. It would be one thing if these items were a dollar or two, but not when they are mostly over 6 dollars an item.
I hope they come up with some new great themes in the W shop.
