I agree. The money made on virtual items - where [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] is making no real life item - have to have a MUCH higher profit margin... they are really only paying programmers and graphic designers they probably already employ to make these things. Selling stuffed animals alone just cannot continue to support and improve a website forever. [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] needs to have these low cost/high profit eStore items available to make money. I don't buy them all, not even a lot of estore stuff or pets, but I THANK everyone who does... Of course I know that a lot of the money is going to the company, but a lot is going into maintaining and improving the site too. More than just plushie sales could ever hope to accomplish.

That is my issue too but I try to remind myself that the people that weren't on last fallfest are probably thrilled that they brought back all of the prizes.

But, I personally wish it was just the new prizes or at least an equal distribution because I sure have gotten alot of cornucopias and sweaters but only 1 globe.

Well, we don't play much anymore.
We decided to try Fall Fest and I've been watching for 4 hours with only 1 leaf to show for it.
Got a hat from last year.
Now I remember why we don't play much anymore.

I agree it's the parents that get frustrated the most or kids that see parents getting frustrated so they get frustrated. In the end it's a virtual game and definitely not worth real life stress that causes real life problems.

Remember [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] doesn't have to do any fests or give away anything free. They could just decide with all the complaints it's just not worth the glitches and hassle and no longer have fall fest.

That's not to say I don't get frustrated if I click a leaf and nothing happens (like one yesterday) or I'm on for a while and no leaves ever show up but I try to keep it all in perspective. It's an annoyance and nothing more.

The fest is several days so maybe take a break and do something else then come back later and try your luck again.

I would like to rephrase my latest comment. There have been several additions to WW such as games and items. But there has been an explosion of items for sale at the estore. Like the plush pets--back when they started you would be ready for the one pet a month to come out and greatly look forward to the next month to see what was coming out. Now, it is trying to keep up with the 12 or so pets per month they put out. I think WW is and always will be the greatest kids site eeeevvvvveeerrr. It is safe, controlled chat and such. So, I would just like to see more new things come into WW without having to purchase.

Me too! I know that it's nice for the people who don't have last years stuff, but I wish none of it returned!!! I have enough of all of it and now even more, but the new stuff is not showing up. Out of 81 items only 9 have been new items... not good odds

Well if someone wants to be “the better person” by not saying anything to [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] that’s fine. I personally believe in accountability so I do write to [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] when things go wrong (especially since things always go wrong with Webkinz). I also feel constructive criticism is a good thing. There are a lot of good ideas on here that would make Webkinz World a more enjoyable place. A good company would welcome the feed back.

As things stand now, my niece will probably not get anything new from Fall Fest this year. It’s not a lack of effort on her part either like some suggests. Kids just don’t have the time it requires to get a leaf. Not to mention if lady luck is on her side and she catches a leaf it will probably be something old from last year. I’m sure this year she’ll be disappointed when all is said and done.
