I for one won't be joining. There's just too much coming out and not enough
money to go around. It's not something I need, but something I want.
So, I'll just have to do without.

Usually I am vigilant for signs of exploitation and "bottom-lining" by Ganz, but I just have to say...


To the people complaining that they or their children feel "left out" by being unable to afford this, well...you don't have to have everything. I am always a little amazed when people say Ganz is releasing almost too many pets to keep up with. The fact that there are those out there who buy every single pet is just astonishing to me.

It's not fair to fault Ganz because you want everything they release and can't afford it. McDonald's doesn't offer fewer choices because you can't afford everything on the menu. Toy stores don't stop stocking their shelves with new toys because people may have blown their budget on everything else in the store.

Personally I think the feeling of wanting everything and feeling left out when you cannot have it, is somewhat unhealthy, or at the very least unproductive.

To those with children, I think this is an excellent opportunity to explain to them that while you may want something that others have, it is ok to pass it up once in awhile because of practicality. And that we can't always have everything we want.

As I once heard someone say, Ganz does heavily encourage the "more more more" attitude, so we need to take steps to curb this way of thinking- in both our children and ourselves.

I totally agree with you. This makes my kids want this stuff more. I tell them that they can't have everything.

Does that not seem like an April Fool's thing to you?

What if this turns out to be an april fools day joke?

It'd be kinda mean for the kids if this was an april fools day joke though. Because some people might be getting really excited about it.

it would be the best kind of joke if they said you'd have to pay for it, then turn around and start giving you all of that stuff for free!

For this to be an April Fool's joke, it would have to be funny. I don't see what's so funny or confusing about it.

Ganz is offering a new product. You can either purchase it, or not. It's not different than offering Lil Kinz or clothes, or figurines, or e-store items. Would you complain if McDonald's starting selling Hot Dogs? I mean, you already have burgers and nuggets and salads to buy, now hot dogs?

Or if Nintendo stopped making new DS games because, hey, there's already a few hundred out there.

I understand it's hard for a lot of people (myself included) to afford everything. I understand that it can make someone unhappy to NOT be able to afford every rare/exclusive/super item...but that's (for me) the fun in the collecting. The challange to win/earn/trade for those hard to get things. And for those of you that won't/can't pay for the Deluxe membership, think about how much better it will make you feel for the good things you CAN afford. Or when a friend of yours gives you a gift of a Signature pet or a deluxe membership.

I'm not sure what to think about the changes. I wish it all did not cost so much.
I will have to think about this one.

I usually check here at WI before I log on, but today I didn't. After I read about deluxe membership, I really didn't want to play anymore. Webkinz is all about investing time and earning the stuff by trying. Now anyone with 45$$$ can have the deluxe things without even trying. Bad job Ganz. You should give members some kind of chance to earn this too.
