The items are nice. I like especially the chair. It is made from gold?

Unhappy Re: Seasonal Webkinz Day Items Coming to Ganz eStore

This is a new "low" to me as far as Webkinz... we have been here since Year 1, have spent thousnds and thousands of $ on their products, have put up with all their glitches, mis-fires, events that weren't "events", locking up, site problems....and yet we're still here.

We stopped buying EStore products. The "points" system is cute but when you look at it as cold, hard, cash, it is riduclously expensive. There is no reason we have to even pay $1 for a graphic of a few towels sitting on a table when we ALL have more than paid enough, through our purchasing, for our own servers and web site. You can buy a web domain name and a 3 Gig host for $50 a year - haven't we spent more than that this year? They can't need us to "pay" $6 to "store" a simple hat on our account.

Yes they are past greedy. Yet their site is full of bugs, glitches, slow-computer-unfriendly things to do, 'please wait', lock ups, punting, unwinnable games (scratch offs, jellybean guessing.....). I sit here and wish I could beg Ganz to let me dedesign the site or give them a long list of what a nightmare their navigation is. For FREE. So why are we being nickel and dimed to death? Aren't we the ones that ought to get a "thank you" that we've endured all the growing pains the last 5 years?

I saw the hat, cake and yellow chair in the ad and thought WOW that will be our prize on Webkinz Day! But, sadly no it's only in the estore. So very bummed.

Agreed! I think that Ganz has figured out their most active demographic is no longer kids ... it's adults like us who have charge cards and disposable income and who are in this for the long haul. Most kids play for maybe a year or so and then drop it, but adults understand the investment we've made and -- quite honestly -- just love the game so much we're much more inclined to spend *real* money on it.

I've been playing for four years and I have an e-store account and I've bought a lot of things. I'm trying to cut back and I won't be buying these particular Year Five items, but if something really neat (or really cheap like those adorable milkshakes for fifty cents) comes up, then I'll buy.

I agree it's really annoying that the really, really neat items are now almost always e-store. It's sort of a Catch 22. They make very cool pixels and offer them for sale, we keep buying, they create more stuff for the e-store.

All that said, however, we just need to remember Ganz is just a business and companies are in business to make a profit. It's not anything personal.

Just my two cents

I got the Webkinz Day package... it's kinda fun. I wanted the Golden Loader Lounger because, well, it's a Golden Loader Lounger. Didn't matter to me it was for the 5th. The hat is cool, sparklers going off all the time will make it a cool party hat. I didn't expect the cake to be much, but it's little candles are actually burning! I wonder if they will be "blown out" tomorrow after Webkinz 5th Birthday is over.

I had just renewed my Deluxe, so I had the eStore points. If I don't have those points, I rarely add more just to "buy" eStore items.

Default Re: Seasonal Webkinz Day Items Coming to Ganz eStore

well...it kind of IS personal when you see what is available with "credit card only". And besides that...did you see the activities offered for Deluxe members today and not for the regular accounts?? KC, Prize Klaw, Wheel of Deluxe, Balloon Dartz. Regular accounts have w-shop, Quick Draw, another Quick Draw, sale items ,...the usual stuff. GANZ...This is supposed to be an EXTRAVAGANZA FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!! Those are not special activites on the regular side. So my point is...yes, Ganz knows what it is doing. It is personal. They are slowly starting to shut down the "small accounts" so they can cater to ones ones willing to fork over more money!!

Well, the candles continue to burn on 5th Year Cake even after 5th Webkinz Day is over! We weren't sure about that one. Also pictured, the 5th Year Hat, still sparkling AS expected. Photo attached with Webkinz Day Countdown clock to to confirm Webkinz day is over and these items still active same as on Webkinz Day!
