hmm... so, Is this going to be one of those greedy zums? orr. is this going to be like a Wacky Zingoz plush toy? where when you buy it you unlock a new game? or is this going to be a kinzclip\all of the webkinz toy stuff where when you get it you unlock a game in the magical forest?..

Well what ever it is. Go Ganz!

Couldn't agree more! I love WW but I'm starting to get very concerned about the recent surge in marketing. I see a trend that I've seen in the past and the end result is not good.

Ganz is going the same route as Ty Beanie Babies. My dd and I had a blast collecting them until they started coming out with soooo many that it was no longer fun. As soon as you got the "must have" new release, 5 more were already on the way. Fortunately, we both got Beanie fatigue at the same time. Our huge collection is now relegated to the back wall of the shed to be passed on some day to the next generation.

I remember when we used to look so forward to the new Webkinz releases, and editions to WW activities, and wShop items, but now we just groan. (Remember how fun it used to be just to spot a new pet in the clubhouse?) Now there is no way we can keep up. Items are too expensive and are old before you even have time to enjoy them. And now with the flood of virtual items that are WAY too expensive, and not even accessible to many WW players, there seems to be more frustration than fun.

Retail stores are being affected as well and are starting to sell less and less because there are just too many to keep up with. My retailer told me the newest releases are old within a week or two and no one wants them if there is a "newer" release, so retailers are stuck with them. Ganz has to slow down to let us enjoy the new releases or as you said, Webkinz fatigue will cause folk's to just give up and search for a cheaper alternative.

Bring back the days of fewer releases, lower the prices of eStore pets/items, and new themes in wShop, and concentrate on fixing the existing glitches that have been around forever, and maybe, just maybe, Ganz can avoid the inevitable crash and burn that is quickly setting itself up.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go pre-order a couple of new pets from Ameriwade and check out the new eStore items.

I just showed my daughter this news item and she is freaking out! Santa Claus brought her a huge pile of Zhu Zhu pets stuff for Christmas, so adding Zhu Zhu pet type stuff to Webkinz World is like her idea of heaven! I hope obtaining the Webkinz version of Zhu Zhu pets isn't as burdensome as it was to obtain the real Zhu Zhu pets. I stood on line for three hours last Thanksgiving night to get my hands on one of those silly hamsters for her!

So like Zhu Zhus and Zumbuddies mixed together?
Sounds cool.
I want one!
I just hope they look like normal hamsters, though.
