No offense to anyone that likes those hamster things, but adding them to Webkinz, is just plain... wrong. Webkinz is virtual pets; not hamsters! They already sell them; why have to make a Webkinz version? Why Ganz, why?

*I'm not really sure if I'm going to enjoy this...

Webkinz is already little virtual pets...our zumbuddies are our pets for our pets...I don't see why they wouldn't make little things for the zumbuddies to play on and in...it is far more unique than using an idea that another company already has...AND if they really wanted to do this copycat thing-why not chose a DIFFERENT animal? Of all the creatures on the planet-why one that is already used?

Why not bugs? I can think of oodles of bugs that would love to crawl through tunnels and such...

I agree completely! I was opposed to Zumbuddies the moment it came out, but I caved and bought one for a separate account with only one pet that my sister and I use to earn money and buy the rares for, then send them to our accounts. Needless to say, that account has been long forgotten for months now...

Anyways, I am not a proponent of these also, because although I am not familiar with the Zhu-Zhu Pets, I have done a little research, and the concept sounds very similar. It's one thing if Ganz is taking ideas from other pets we haven't heard of for their own site (for all we know, pets like the minty reindeer and fuzzy purple monster may already exist somewhere else), but taking ideas from a product that we know isn't very reasonable, in my opinion. I am not even a fan of these "pets for your pets" already. Webkinz should be all about YOUR pet that you buy that comes with a code, the one you bathe, and enter contests with, and walk in the clubhouse, not about little bunches of pixels that are side pets.

That's not bad of an idea, dbird! I would support bugs over the hamsters also! I am 98% sure that Ganz took a look at these Zhu-Zhu hamster pets before they developed the idea. It's just way too coincidental, as you said, that hamsters were chosen.

I can think easily of over a dozen other creatures they could have chosen...worms, termites...actually, bugs are pretty much the only way to go! The most disturbing thing I find about this is the type of pet they chose. There isn't a Webkinz hamster, but there is a guinea pig, and I find it odd that a pet would have a real pet as a pet (did I put one pet too many? ). It's pretty awkward to be taking care of a pet like a Guinea pig, who has a pet that is almost like them! I'm not sure if I'm explaining this correctly, but it's like a human having a human as a pet...it just isn't logical.

The only reason Zums work is because they're little insignificant creatures that are small in comparison to their owners. A normal pet playing with a little creature just like we play with stuffed animals.

That's just my take on this. As of now, I'm completely against the idea.

Oh, wow. This is kind of lame. I mean, really. Complete Zhu-Zhu rip-off. Way to go, Ganz.

I think it is cause kids love hamsters - my ds is over the moon and almost touched the ceiling (excuse the mixed metaphor) when he read the front page news. He has wanted a Webkinz hamster for over a year now Somehow ants just don't have that furry, cuddly appeal - but who knows you may have your bees and ants before we get our hamsters (or very soon after)!
