I mean what is to stop someone from trading a country bed for a Superbed to a little kid like my Granddaughter? No...I think I will stay with this for now.
Everybody does realize that this is all just pretend "stuff"? None of it is really worth anything. If you are that concerned about what your kid is going to trade and that it is not going to be fair, you are either taking this WAY too seriously or you shouldn't even let them be playing at all. Probably both. Although anyone on this message board obviously takes WW way to seriously anyway, including me.

Thumbs up Re: Webkinz Insider Receives Preview Images of Trading Block from Ganz!

I was so excited when I 1st read this, but after reading the responses to Justin's post, I'm nervous.
I think I may only trade with people I know in the beginning (in the clubhouse.)

I think the best plan may be to just keep going towards my goal and work towards being able to trade on WI GE, like many others think on this thread.

Thanks to all posts for all the information, positive and negative!
WI is the best!

Hmmmm, I'm not as excited as I was . . .
Uhhh....those first two things are true now...you can only kinzmail 3 items a day...you can agree to more but thats all you can actually trade a day.

We all do realize this is just pretend, but it is our hobby. We enjoy what we do. I just like kids to be happy. It kills me to see my friends selling their valuable stuff, but if they prefer the kc, it's okay with me. Most of us are more laid back than we seem.

Default Re: Webkinz Insider Receives Preview Images of Trading Block from Ganz!

I think it's great except how do you communicate like we do here. It's not like you can say how about this for this or I'm looking for this. Not to mention how are they going to keep it fair like they do here? I don't think it will completely replace this site- It will be great for some of those smaller trades- unless there is going to be rules even there. Does anyone know? I'm worried about the little kids trading say an exclusive for something of much lesser value at the wshop- and then regretting it later. I hope it's monitored like it is here so some kid doesn't get ripped off.

That was well said...
I know what you mean...one of my nieces got another elephant fountain...I had been telling my mom I wanted that item and so she told my niece and she sent it to me cause she is less into webkinz then my 55plus mother and my 30plus self...I was so happy but I felt guilty too cause I knew it's trade value...and so just to clear my concience I sent her a rose party dress from the kinzstyle shop and gave her a Persian Cat Webkinz...cause what she did was so sweet...bless her heart...
