I really don't understand how people can afford all the webkinz things they have, like 100s of pets and clothes and e-store items, trading card items, etc. And it is really stressful in the trading rooms when people have no interest in what I have for trade, because my items aren't "special" enough. Don't get me wrong, there are lots of nice people on WW and WI, but most of them have, and will always have, lots more stuff than I do.

Has anyone's estore changed yet? Mine is still showing stuff for Sunday and nothing for Wed yet. Not even the deluxe membership stuff.

I have to say I am both intrigued and sceptical.

It is another way for Ganz to make money (our choice to buy or not). It may offer exciting features, and the points may be worthwhile. My concern has been repeated above: will this impact WW as we know it? Will it restrict access to those who choose not to buy the membership?

It is early yet and we still need to find out the details. Can't wait for the e-store to be completed!

* My question: on the family membership, it states that the points go to the main joining account. Will each of the 5 get a monthly gift?

What are your thoughts?

How do you purchase it? I have looked all over the website and the estore and I can't find it.

I think that, given the fact that I haven't been able to find a place to purchase the membership, it's an April Fool's Day joke.

The implication is yes. They specify that only ONE account gets the e-store points (which makes sense, as these will appear to be akin to money, spendable at the e-store just like cash) but do NOT specify that for virtual items (like the monthly gift) other than the one-time gift (the hat).

I understand where you are coming from but maybe there should be something else besides a super bed. I don't have money to buy all this stuff. I go to college, my husband laid off and i have 2 kids. My husband doesn't like me to spend money on webkinz. My kids have 9 and 10 pets each we bought some charms in the estore for the kids and they have 1 figurine each.I think they need to slow down with some stuff. And yes I know members with hundreds. But I just don't think the membership is the way to go. I will never have that much money. Unless I want a divorce. LOL

I think that as long as my grandkids are into Webkinz, I'll buy the Deluxe Membership for the whole family. It is a fun thing that we have in common and we have a lot of fun together. I'd rather have them on Webkinz than MySpace!

I'm in a fairly similar boat. My wife recently got laid off. But she and my daughter love their webkinz accounts. All three of us have, with them having considerably more pets than I. But it comes down to spending the money you feel comfortable spending and not being obligated to. My wife is already drooling over the trees, so she'll probably get a caring valley pet ASAP. My daughter loves the forest so I'll look for the Zips for her to get to Zumwhere. But we won't necessarily need to get BOTh purchases for BOTH of them. Not every account needs to purchase everyhing Ganz puts out there to get the best experience for the individual player. On the other hand, if you want to play/experience/collect more, then, yes, naturally, that will cost more.

This looks interesting but I am still a bit confused. Does anyone know if this is all virtual boxes, clothes etc...?? It's not real clear to me.??????
