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.

Respectfully,

I doubt it. I mean why would they do all that stuff and get their members all excited and stuff to just turn around and dump Webkinz...it be like a slap in the face to their members.

I wonder if I'll be able to get another mat? I'll have to try and get a code from an add and give it a try.

It is a smart idea, I think.

I totally agree this is a marvelous idea but one has to ponder the reason for this change. Did the people whose dropped accounts rise in number? Were the company efforts to encourage bringing a friend back not having the expected results? Was membership down? There has to be a reason for this type of change and I wonder what it was.

I think its important to remember that the phasing in of new stuff is as far out as a year in planning before it actually hits the site..maybe even longer..so just because new stuff is hitting right and left doesn't mean that the site is as popular as in 2006.

Could this also be an experiment to see how many people will spend money on pets and delux in order to have access to the whole site..??? I have a feeling the access issue will be huge. Who is going to want to play on WW if they can't access their favorite things they use to when adopting a pet each year? So they are not telling us what that limited access will be...it could be a lot we will not be able to access that will make it not so much fun.

This could backfire.

This is great nes. Although I can imagine the site will be running slower due to the large amount of people joining webkinz.
