Webkinz Opossum Described as Exclusive 'Preview' by Ganz
In our previous article detailing the soon-to-be-released Webkinz Opossum at Cracker Barrels around the US, we wondered about the wording in a press release issued by Cracker Barrel.
As most of you know, retailers like Justice have released semi-exclusives, such as the Webkinz Guinea Pig, which were released to all retailers a few months later. Accordingly, the wording of this press release led us to believe that the Webkinz Opossum might be a fully-exclusive pet, only available at Cracker Barrel.
Thanks to Zameron from our Webkinz Forum (and our retail partner at http://www.ameriwade.com) for pointing out the following ad in Webkinz World, indicating that the Webkinz Opossum is an "exclusive preview release" at Cracker Barrel.
In addition, the wording on the Webkinz Newz announcement of the pet also includes "exclusive preview release". What does all of this mean? It means that, after a set amount of time, all Webkinz retailers will be able to order the Webkinz Opossum and all of you that aren't near a Cracker Barrel will be able to grab one and have the beautiful Gazebo for your outdoor yards! How long? We're not sure, as Zameron has pointed out that the Hallmark Exclusive Webkinz Arctic Fox is still not orderable by smaller retailers, though it was supposed to be available 60 days after the initial release.
