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!
new webkinz 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.

Oooh, how cute! Very smart, too. The only complaint I have about this is my trash can fills up too much already and it's going to be hard, constantly stuffing Webkinz boxes in there... I think I'll learn to live with it, though. XD

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

this was a smart idea of ganz
although i personally don't really like how it looks, it will prevent tag stealing
i wonder if signatures will come in those boxes...if they do, i wonder how they'll look

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

It's a great idea!! Plus it's really cute!! Are Signature pets going to come in the boxes, too??

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

Neat Idea ganz!

It'll be weird with packaging. We should've realized MAZIN hamsters were in boxes for a reason.
It wouldn't be neccesary, in England. we have these things by the doors that can tell if you've taken something. And in some supermarkets they even have like xrays!

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

I don't understand how this will stop the stealing of tags, because they are still right there within reach.... unless the entire thing is encased in a clear plastic box which does not show on the photograph?

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

This seems like a good idea... but hopefully more packaging won't cause the price to increase.

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

Cute! It's good they're taking action too, I see code-less webkinz ALL the time. Mostly at Target & Walmart. I feel bad for them :/

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

This is ridiculous! The world is already struggling from loss of trees, and Webkinz is a huge company that produces tons of Webkinz! A lot of Webkinz = A lot of boxes = A lot of paper = A lot of trees being used! This is a terrible idea!

Plus, shopkeepers could just put the Webkinz behind the counter!

Im Sure theres a thing called Recycling, Which I Do it myself. We Love Recycling, We Recycle Almost Everything

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

Hmm, I kinda liked it the way it was because it was easier to carry a whole bunch at one time xD Oh well, I'll learn to live with it xDDDD

I agree with this, too.

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

I'm unable to find the scottish terrier even on ameriwade?

Also not understanding how this will prevent code theft, unless, as mentioned, it is enclosed in plastic?

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

I think the box will look nice for gift giving. My daughter's birthday is this month and she wants... webkinzs!

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

So cute!

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

I think that's a cool idea I love the design and colors on it. I can't wait to buy one for the first time!

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

This is a good idea since it will be much more obvious that a code is missing and a bit more obvious to steal one. It's too bad to destroy trees and I hope these will be made from recycled paper. At least there is no plastic sleeve or ribbon to through away and the whole box except the tag can be recycled. The only thing is that they will probably be fastened with a plastic strap that has to go in the trash.

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

Hide your 'Kinz, hide your wife 'cause they be stealing everybody out here.
Ugh kleptos and wastefulness. Loathe packaging. *shakes fist*

imho, the best theft-prevention =
put an electronic tag on the actual tag...

If a Mom'n'Pop can't afford that, keep either the tags or the entire Webkinz in a locked case/at the registers.

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

Cool! Can't wait to see how the new package sells! Good Luck GANZ!

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

Thanks for the updates.Everyone have a great day and God bless.

Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

Thanx Justin for the info.

This is a great idea! It's gonna keep the tag safe so everyone who buys a webbie will always get a tag.

Doesn't the Razzle Dazzle Dog look cute in the new package?
I really mean that!
I take back every single mean thing I said about it earlier.
I can't wait to get mine!
I'm gonna give my Razzy a good home.
