Webkinz Insider Member Confirms Arctic Fox Rumor
For several weeks rumors have been swirling around the internet regarding the possible release of a Webkinz Arctic Fox. Thanks to Webkinz Insider member FrogKissingLady we can now confirm that this rumor is true. Her local Hallmark contacted her today to let her know that they had received their shipment of the plushies. FrogKissingLady was able to stop by the store to "visit" with with her Fox and take pictures, but she was not able to purchase him. The Arctic Foxes are not scheduled for official release until March 19th and the store can't sell them before that date. FrogKissingLady is looking forward to being able to bring "Alopex" home soon.
UPDATE: Thank you to our friends at Ameriwade (www.ameriwade.com) we can bring you a little bit more information on this new Webkinz. Hallmark stores are going to have an exclusive selling this new plushie for the first 60 days. After that, other retailers will have the option to order and sell the Fox. There are going to be more exclusive Webkinz in the future, but there is no confirmed word yet on what the plushies will be or on what stores will get them.
