I loved, loved, LOVED Webkinz growing up as a child. Ever since that lovely Christmas 2005 day, I have been obsessed with Webkinz.
But now GANZ, the creators of Webkinz, have gone too far.
Firstly, they added Deluxe Membership, which is a lot similar to Membership on Animal Jam. I was a Deluxe Member for about a year or so. Life was good, until that Membership ran out. :I I was pretty disappointed when I found out I could no longer play my favorite maze game, Whimsy Skies, and another game called Stardrops. Man, I was the QUEEN OF THAT GAME. No kidding! :P
Secondly, they completely changed the layout of the WShop. (The place where you can buy furniture, food, toys, decorations, etc.) They should have just left it how it originally was, because mixing the Deluxe-Only items with the eStore (online Webkinz store; purchases made with real money) items with the regular items. And that's another thing too: the Deluxe-Only items. They changed some of the best items (like the princess bed and the delicious drinks refreshing cooler) to Deluxe-Only!
Can you imagine how angry I was!? >:U
And I'm not the ONLY one who was screaming with rage and frustration.
In my opinion, GANZ should create new items to make Deluxe-Only, instead of taking away some the features we already have. It's not fair.
I know they're trying to make money, but this is so. not. fair. >:I
Then they took away the Vacation Island from us! I'd always visit the tropical wonders of Vacation Island to play that one haunted shipwreck game and spin the wheel of pineapples or whatever.
Thirdly, for almost a year, all of the new pets that were ever released were one simple animal: a puppy. Each puppy had a different pattern on it: doughnuts, chocolate, common texting abbreviations, scribbles, snowflakes, peace signs...
GANZ designers weren't taking enough time with their products.
Fourthly, they stopped traveling on their annual Road Trip! The last Road Trip I went to was in 2012. It was so much fun. The GANZ employees tossed out Wacky Zingoz plushies, figurines, bookmarks, and other Webkinz-themed trinkets to the crowds. I even grabbed a few for myself. :3 Now I bet their company has lost its popularity, so they quit the Road Trip. >:(
And finally, the mayor of Kinzville (who was supposed to be Fluffington, the richest resident in all of Kinzville) is a teenager, still in her high school years, and she's the daughter of the Kinzville Academy teacher, Ms. Cowoline. You guessed it - Cowabelle!
She's so young and childish! No one wants a 17-year-old cow for a mayor! o.e
The real reason I made this post was to let everyone know that...
THEY'RE TAKING AWAY DR. QUACK! DR. QUACK IS CLOSING IS CLINIC ON MARCH 25TH!
I want to cry right now. I'm so agitated on the verge of bursting in tears.
Dr. Quack is the Kinzville doctor. He takes care of every pet's health needs. He's been on the job for around ten years. TEN YEARS!
I still love my family of Webkinz plush dearly, but...
GANZ has taken my childhood from me.
How could you, GANZ?
How could you?
