Re: Unannounced Upgrade brings New Adoption Exclusives and Much More

I wanted to voice my concern over the seemingly constant changes you are doing to Webkinz World.
Let me start by explaining to you why my children and ultimately myself, began using this website. WW was a fun place that my kids could go to and just have fun. It was a place where everyone was whatever animal they wanted, without any stereotypes or stress.
WW is similar to the real world in that it forces kids to “earn” money and save it if they want something special-and I have always enjoyed that idea and embraced it. If they saw something nice that they wanted they would work extra hard at a game or remember to do their jobs often and they would be able to get that item.
However, due to your increasing the amount of special features for the Deluxe members, WW is quickly becoming a place where my kids feel left out, alienated and “less than special.”
It has not crossed my mind to actually purchase a Deluxe Membership because frankly, I can’t justify spending money on something you cannot touch. Keep in mind, that my daughter alone has over 40 little Webkinz plush dolls.
My husband is currently deployed and on an Army salary, and I will not destitute our family because you are feeling a little greedy. I will, however simply stop purchasing plushies and discontinue the use of your website. Why should I spend more money (on top of large amount that has already been spent) for something that is no longer enjoyable to my kids because they are constantly wondering why they don’t get to spin a fun wheel or how come they don’t get a special rare item?

While I admire your sentiment, you already have your answer. You stated your kids are willing to 'save up' for the things they want so...
Have each of them decide NOT to get their next Webkinz plush (thus saving an average of $10-15 per plush) and then apply that money to a Deluxe FAMILY membership which includes up to FIVE accounts for the cost of 3-5 plushies... Rather than rant at a company that is doing what companies do (try to make moeny), use your creativity to make the best of the situation!
