Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!
Thanks to Robert at our partner webkinz store, Ameriwade.Com, for letting us know about something new that Ganz has done with Webkinz packaging starting next month.. Retailers are now able to order Webkinz with or without outer boxes!
This new display style is a welcome departure from the pets alone with hang tags because the codes were so easily ripped open and stolen without shopkeepers noticing until it was too late. The boxes should help prevent loss to shopkeepers and also allow them to display the Webkinz pets more prominently in their stores!
Robert has also just let us know that both the Webkinz Mystic Pony and the Webkinz Scottish Terrier are both sold out at Ganz, so retailers will not have a chance to re-order. If you haven't already secured a pre-order and want either of those pets, make sure you buy your webkinz right away! Our friends at Ameriwade are helpful and reliable as our official partner and you can get flat-rate $5 shipping on every order!
UPDATE: To those assuming that the new boxes will lead to a price increase, the cost of the Webkinz with or without the boxes (retailers can choose whether to order with or without the packaging) is exactly the same! It is also highly likely that the boxes are made from recycled cardboard for those with environmental concerns.
