Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July Webkinz


webkinz cheatsMoments ago we got a disturbing bit of information from our Partner Store, Ameriwade.  In a surprising move, Ganz has drastically reduced the number of plushies retailers can order from the new set of July Webkinz pets.  
 
Ameriwade, which is the largest Ganz retailer in Nevada, is only able to order three each of the Mohawk Monkey, Petal Puppy, and Sun Bear and six of the Signature Camel.  We are receiving identical reports from our other retail connections, both in the USA and in Canada.
 
In the past, Ganz has released special "Limited Availability" pets in these quantities, but they have never reduced their regular inventory in this manner.  At this point, we are not certain if this is a one time thing, or if this is how future Webkinz pets will be released.  We are also not certain if the inventory for the "big box" stores has been affected.
 
Ameriwade has made the decision to put their pre-sale on hold for now.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

I have to wonder if the stock reduction is only for the summer months when the sales are lower? If not it can't mean anything good.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

I don't think you will be able to find them up for pre sell till dealers know for sure what's going on. I would be shocked if anyone will Guarantee the pre order. We have decided to Cancel our Pre Sale till I can confirm what I can get.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

Definitely best to do so I am getting all of my 'retailer' connections on the phone to get those orders in. It is going to be Pandemonium.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

This IS disturbing news. That's kinda scary!

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

This is really bad. I am worried about what will happen. Are all of these just limited edition? Is it a one time thing? Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

Oh my!!
I really hope everyone is able to get their favorite before they're gone!

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

This doesn't seem like a wise move on Ganz's part. I wonder how many will be like me and say 'if it is so hard to get, then I won't bother'? Seems bad for business to leave the retailers hanging and the customers too.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

I've been taking a break from buying them anyway. They're kinda expensive if you think about it. I think many people will be thinking what you are jms40.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

I do love the sunbear. So i will track that one down. But I am thinking for me this is a good thing. Maybe I will stop buying and just play with what I have. I have over 500 pets on 13 accounts. Lots of estore items, have boughten boxes of trading cards. I think I will just be happy with what I have. And not spend anymore money into my account. I could have had a new car for the $$$ i have stuck into my webkinz account. I DO LOVE WEBKINZ but maybe its time for me to move on lol.

It will probably be like the hippie hippo and in months to come these will be able to reorder and be shelf sitters. Lets keep fingers crossed.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

You know, it could be because they have released (and are planning to release) so many different types of pets that making enough of each individual one for everyone is a bit overkill. I dunno, its just a theory. But, at some point, there will be way too many different types of pets to expect that we can all have each one. And think of it this way: all the pets that you do see on WW will be more unique. Instead of seeing, say, 5 elephants in a clubhouse room at the same time, we will see more diversity. Anyway, that was my attempt at looking at the brighter side

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

NOOOOOOOOO! Must have the Petal Puppy!!!! Why do they make all the puppies impossible to get!

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

I am thinking they are doing this because their sales are down in general. Why make sooo much when they arent going to sell out, and then they end up being shelf sitters. Like they stopped making the plush hamsters.. those didnt sell very well around here. Most places have clearanced them off. I guess I am more of an estore shopper anyways. Lets hope that in months to come this does not happen again. Or I see a sad ending coming within the next year for webkinz world.

Hopefully I do not end up paying more than $30 on ebay for that sunbear. I will wait to see what the item is before I decide if i REALLY need him or not lol.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

why don't they cut back on the NUMBER of different pets each month and make/distribute without limits only 2 or 3 plushies that would seem to be more popular.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

That's a shame even though I don't buy things online.

Good point!

Wait... wasn't the Hippie Hippo supposed to be rare? But I saw them for a regular price at Justice. Hopefully these pets will just end up being common after all (some hope.)
Or maybe one of our retailers will save us by pricing these pets reasonably, however rare they are?

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

Are you serious! Well, that's horrible! I doubt I will be able to get any of the July pets if that's how things are going!

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

Aw! I might have a hard time finding those pets.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

This soooooooooooooooooooooooo unfair!
What is with Ganz?
I was really hoping to get the Petal Puppy but who knows now?

suzee

I agree good way to keep things positive! There is too much negativity lately.

Re: Ganz Drastically Reduces Retailer Plush Stock for July

Oh great....what fun, now I have to contact the place I go get webbies and ask them to hold on to the pets I want for July. (when they get them in of course)



Maybe Ganz is trying make more people buy from the estore and less from stores............
