WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies


webkinz cheats
As most of you know, Ganz, the company that produces Webkinz and Webkinz World, makes a lot of products that don't have anything to do with Webkinz.  One of these items is called "Lil Hamsters", and as a number of our members have noticed, these plushies are similar in size and shape to the new "Mazin' Hamsters" that are just hitting store shelves now.
 
The "Lil Hamsters" are not Webkinz.  They have "tush tags" with the name "Ganz" on them, but they do not come with feature codes.  All "Mazin' Hamsters" come with feature codes that can be entered in Webkinz World to give players access to a brand new 3D feature.  So, before you snatch up that plushie and hand over your money, make certain the hamster you're holding is the one you really want.  They're both cute, but only one will work in Webkinz World.
 

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

Thanks for the info. I think it's strange to just make the hamsters without the codes. I would probably buy one and not even realize there wasn't a code, till I opened it up. Then I would be annoyed. Thanks for saving me some money. I wouldn't have known, without your updates.

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

They are all very cute.

Thank you for sorting out the differences.

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

Aww. I kind of like the little ones better! The big ones are nice, but i couldn't get the demo for them to work. Maybe I'll get one of each!

I agree!

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

I have the not mazin hamster ones

me and wethehamsters knew about them first in wethehamster's webkinz hamster idea fourm they were there

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

why would Ganz release two products so similar and only one will work on WW? It makes me sad to think of kids who will be disappointed by getting the wrong one. It's so confusing.

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

The little ones are so cool And I know Justice has them!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks for little ones!

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

Do the Mazin' hamsters have a W on their paw like all other webkinz?

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

OMG I saw some of those!

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

Thanks for article FIA!
Ganz makes a lot more items than just Webkinz or other plush. The items look really similar and that can cause confusion. Especially, if someone is buying a gift and does not really know the difference between the products.
I have also noticed that ganz will use the same fabric on Non-Webkinz plushes which can fool someone into thinking that they are Webkinz.

Thanks again for the heads up.

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

yup, i saw many of these while on a vacation to pennsylvania Dutch. there are two variations of ganz hampsters. small little ones like the ones shown and small tan ones that move when you pull their tall. They were $6 so i didnt get one but i wish i took a picture! they were made by ganz i thought they were mazin' hampsters!

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

I bought my older sister one of these last Christmas, xD
She loves hamsters and I couldn't think of what to get her. 8D

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

I think I have one of those.

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

Thanks for the info! I am going to get one sometime this week, so I'll be sure not to get the Lil' Hamsters.

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

I've been excited for these hamsters so I know which one is which!!! Getting SUNSHINE this weekend!! She looks like my hammie )

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

Thanks for clearing that up, or else I would make that mistake.

no they don't they're not webkinz, they're just produced by GANZ. I saw some when i went to a field trip to Great America.

It looks like their paw would be too small for a "W", it's probably on their hip.

Re: WI Members Discover Non-Webkinz Ganz Hamster Plushies

Thanks for the update FIA.
I had no idea Ganz has 2 kinds of hamsters. It's kinda confusing.
Well, I don't really have to worry about them. My mom said "NO" cause I have so many Webbies. I'm really not too interested in them anyway.
I hope everyone here on who gets them enjoys them a lot.
