Default Counterfeit Webkinz?

I brought a black and white cat yesterday, but I noticed that the tag by its tail is different from all my other webkinz. The tag on the cat is kinda square shapped, and one side is written in english and the other one in spanish french... could this be a counterfeit webkinz or a new/old tag that I've never seen before?
UPDATE: I activated the cat and it worked fine... I'm guessing its and older version of the newer tag... and another thing that I noticed was that the secret code was all letters, no numbers...

I looked at one of my older Webkinz, the Little Chihuahua. Its two tags on the back leg are oblong (long square). The Ganz tag is embroidered. The other tag which has legal required material content information is in English on one side and French on the other side.

I think that the ultimate test of your pet's authenticity is whether or not its code works in the adoption agency.

Let us know all that happens.

I just bought a seahorse, let me go look at it...

---------- adorablepup149 added 6 Minutes and 21 Seconds later ----------

Well, it has the big Ganz tag, (with the heart logo) and a rectangular paper tag.

Here's what the paper tag says:

[On front side]
HS507 LIL' KINZ SEAHORSE

[On back side]
NEW MATERIAL ONLY
REG. NO 12T-0833305
CONTENTS: Polyester Fiber
Plastic Pellets

(then it says same thing in Spanish)

------

Does it say something like that on your tag? If it does, then it is probably just a different kind of tag shape.

I think all the new one have tags like these, but the "Spanish" side is actually French. (Finally, french classes pay off!

Probably depends on where it's made. I'm guessing they must have more than one factory, most likely all overseas. So even though they all make the same product from the same pattern, there would be slight variations and the tags would be diferent so they can tell which factory made a certain pet.

PrettyPeach102 is an unknown quantity at this point

Default Re: Counterfeit Webkinz?

It would make sense that part of the tag is in French because Ganz is a Canadian company and alot of people who live in Canada speak French.

Default Re: Counterfeit Webkinz?

Oh, hey, while we're on the subject, I wanna be more positive on of my webkinz isn't counterfeit:

I got an original cheeky dog off ebay, no tags, a couple months ago, for, like, $20. Since its tags are used, I can't use that method of making sure it's real. So, does any one know if the really old pets (like, from 2005 or 2006) are supposed to have the embroidered ganz tag? Cause this cheeky dog doesn't. It has 2 tags on it's bottom-one long, skinny one and and on short fat one.

On the long tag it says:
________________________
(front)
---------------------------
HM063

(rith a barcode on the right side)
________________________________

(back)

and the short tag says this:

front:

(and then there's a stamp that says) HL1375

back:

um...same thing as front, only in french...I'm too lazy to type it.

If anyone can help me out, it would be greatly appreciated! I hope it's alright I posted this here, dotdotduck, it's just that this has been bugging me ever since I got her!
