This is excellent news! I have one question, though. My account is set to expire on the 30th of this month. Does that mean I don't have to adopt another Webkinz to keep it active after January 19th?

Very nice. I know my account expires in May and I know for sure that I wasn't going to get anymore Webkinz. Although, I'm quite curious on why GANZ did this. I wonder... Hmm...

Well I said before its a great idea and it is,but..here is the deal...until we all know what they mean by limited access...we just don't know how great this is. I have a feeling deep inside me that we are going to have a huge amount of disappointed users when it concerns the limited access....so don't get too excited yet...if you can't do much of anything...is it worth it to have a free account? I dont' know....maybe for those that have more than one account it might be...but can't say it will for those that have only one or two accounts..if the access is seriously limited.

My thoughts exactly...

One might say 'no way, look at the new hamster stuff and all the new pets each month'. But then again, we've been told (all over WI) that Webkinz have dropped in popularity & the fan bas is shrinking - the craze is over.

So, what are your thoughts? Anyone else think this is something besides unprecedented goodwill & generosity on Ganz' part?

Just curious.

Hope the 'too good to be true' is true in this case.

Good point. I was thinking that. I'm still buying pets every now and then, and I might have a limited account in the future, but I hope they only have a few games and what not, not like a Full membership. Then people will buy more.

I have a bad feeling about this too. I do feel they have already taken a page out of Club Penguin's book (the snow covered map and behold Waddel's adventure being the community game) and feel they will continue along that route. Club penguin limits access to lots of their features if you don't buy the extras with a card or monthly or yearly charge... I have not seen them be altruistic since I have joined... maybe on their donations through caring valley but we help pay for that... any thoughts? Anyone else know about Club Penguin? My nephew used to play and one grandson was interested for awhile...

This is great but I am hoping for some info on limited membership and more details on this.
