I think it's great, actually. I don't think it will hurt local retailers, because the price is higher than what many of them charge, and if you want a plush then you will still be shopping at your local retailer. However, many people have a hard time finding the POTM locally - I know I do. So this will keep people without good local stores (and people in countries where Webkinz are hard to find!) from being left out of the POTM fun. Also, while I very much like the plushies generally, I have yet to find a Himalayan cat in a store that doesn't look like it's been chewed by a dog and then sat upon by a squirmy 2-yr-old - so I may very well buy a code-only pet next month!

I agree. At the webkinz retailer I usually buy from, webkinz are around $10-15. And the potms usually go on sale. With the plush. Why would I pay more for just the code when I could go to the store and get the plush+code for a lower price? It's not a bad idea to sell the potm at the estore if they made it a lot cheaper.

while I am gld they they are offering it- as i have not been able to find it and have called everyone in a 20 mile readious (3 suburbs worth) It should be availible to everone not just Deluxe and they shouldn't charge full price for a partial product ( no plushy) This is my main problem with all e store pets. They should cost more lilke 9000 rather than 12500.

Ha ha!! Too true! The Himalayan plushie is not the prettiest thing by a long shot. The online one is fine, kinda cute, but no way do I want the plushie of that one!

That is pretty cool considering that the older pets are getting hard to find!

I can usually get the POTM for $2.89 at my local Wagreens store so I wouldn't want to buy one from Ganz. But I think it is a good idea because not everyone has places close to them to buy Webkinz and it gives them a chance to get the POTM Loot bag if they want it. They should be much cheaper and also available to everyone not just deluxe members.

I think this is a good idea to sell at the e-store. But I also think the POTM should cost 10.00 at the e-store as it is an older pet. Even in the stores around here where I live, the POTM will sell for 10.00 when the other Webkins sell for more. Like everyone else is saying, a code only pet should sell for less than the plushie with a code.

I also think this is too high and I will not utilize this feature. I remember when the estore debuted the Grey Wolf was $9, I thought that was fair and I was one of the first in line to get one. I can get pets locally at Walgreens for $5-$9.99, the ones for $9.99 are a 2 pack, big kinz and lil kinz. My local Hallmark offers them for $11.99 but they also send monthly coupons and run wonderful specials such as buy 1 get a lil kinz free or buy 2 get a 3rd free, etc. Justice has every new pet months before anyone else, including signature pets and theirs are $17.99 pet and $29.99 for signature, the difference is if you join their mailing list and e-mail list you get 40% off coupons at least twice a month making their prices $10.80 for a pet and $18 for a signature, which makes their pets still lower than eStore. I think Ganz needs to go back to the $9 price, it just seems more realistic and a fair market value.

I like the idea because I have an older child and we end up disposing of (usually thru charity) the plushies. I would rather stop buying them now that she's less interested and just buy the codes since I like the games still. I know not everyone is in that situation, and it does seem expensive to buy a virtual square, but some of us would rather do that than have a closet of bodies.
