How  does a Webkinz come to life?
When you purchase a new Ganz Webkinz you will notice that there is a special sealed tag attached to the leg.  This tag is sealed in a see through envelope and is to be opened by the new owner of the Webkinz.  Inside the tag you will find a special secret code.  Each Webkinz contains its very own secret code.  No two codes are the same.

What is a Retired Webkinz?
Retired simply means that the Webkinz is no longer being made.  If you own a Retired Webkinz, you can still play with it and have all the fun any other Webkinz owner does.  However, no more of the Retired Webkinz are being made, so they are not available for anyone else adopt.  A retired Webkinz is special, since they are no longer available,  you own something that is unique!  Not only are they Retired Webkinz fun to play with, but they are also a desirable collectible among collectors of Webkinz.

What Webkinz are retired?
Currently there are officially only two Webkinz that have been retired.  The Cheeky Dog and the Cheeky Cat.  There is a lot of speculation that the Cheeky Monkey will soon be retired.  However, there is no official word from Ganz about the Cheeky Monkey being retired.

Ganz sometimes stops making certain products, but does not label them as retired.  In this case they refer to them as discontinued.   Generally speaking, a discontinued item is a retired item.    There are several of the Lil'kinz that Ganz has labeled as discontinued, such as the Lil'Kinz Black bear and the Lil'Kinz Hippo.

How much does a Webkinz cost?
Webkinz suggested retail is $9.99 and Lil'kinz suggested retail is $6.99.  However, since Webkinz have become more popular, the supply is almost exhausted.  Ganz is having trouble keeping up with shipments to retailers.  Thus the price of Webkinz, especially the more popular ones has increased.   There are many webkinz available for sale on auction sites such as ebay.com.  You will find the prices far above the current retail.

The two officially retired Webkinz, the Cheeky Dog is selling for several hundred dollars and the Cheeky Cat is selling for well over one hundred dollars.
