Default Re: bag those webbies, stop tag stealing!

I was at a JC Penney that had about 25 webkinz and only 10 had tags. I told a manager about it and suggested that they remove the tags and keep them at the register or under the counter and she said, "That's not my department, you need to speak to the store manager."

Well, that shocked me right out of my shoes. Isn't store theft every departments' concern?

Well anyway, I did finally get to speak to the store manager and she was like, clueless. I explained that the tags were the main reason that people buy webkinz, so they can go online, enter the codes then play with their "virtual" counterpart on line in Webkinz World. (That it was like getting 2 pets for the price of 1".) Well, she seemed to like the idea to keep the tags in a safe location, but I guess it became too much of a chore, because now they don't carry webkinz anymore.

With so many stores today that have electronic monitoring, and those beepers that sound when someone tries to steal an item, you would think that GANZ could somehow put a security chip in the tag somehow that would sound when you walked past those security scanners. The chip could be activated by which ever security system that store had.

Well, it IS a nice idea, but I like to look over the kinz first to make sure its fur isnt messed up or anything. (backwards or something) And I also like to make sure its tag is right. (mixed up on the assembly line?)

Agreed, I do that too. Most of the time I can find holes and stuff. Maybe like the Mazin Hamsters? They come in little box things.

Here's one for you - I actually was at Toys R Us once and searching in the bins and found a tag without a Webbie! I took it to the front and since it was without the Plushie, they gave it to me for free.

I agree, something should be done, too many tags are stolen.

Default Re: bag those webbies, stop tag stealing!

I couple weeks ago there was this one pet at Target I wanted so bad and visted for weeks as I saved up my money, it was a Lil' B&W Cat, with the sweetest face... When I had almost enough money, the day before getting my allowance, I hid him under a pile of roosters. The next day, me and mom went back to the store JUST FOR HIM, but there was NO tag or ribbon or case or ANYTHING, there had been the day before, he was the last one, and he was on the other side of the aisle. I was in tears for the next couple hours, I'd already had a name, a room, a personality, everything picked out for him, and then...

I fully support this idea!

Oh, I am so sorry you could not get your lil' cat. There is always the partner store. I know you can't pick out the best pet that way, but I know that Robert would never ship a pet without a tag.

I checked all the pets and two thirds of them had no tags. Some of them still had the plastic pouches, but no tags! There was no manager to be seen, but I did e-mail that store later. I think that if webkinz came in bags (like the ones shown here http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...online-620780/ ) that the nasty tag stealers might give up. And even if the tag stealers didn't give up, at least well meaning parents and grandparents would see that something was wrong with the torn bag, and think "this one is open, I don't want to get DD an open one"
I always check before I buy a webbie in a store, but I am certain that other grown-ups who do not understand that you need the little blue tag would just buy a webbie for a child, who would then be very upset that they could not adopt the pet.
So I think that all webkinz, or at least those sent to Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc., should be sealed in plastic bags with the webkinz logo, and a window to see your pet. This would at least deter the nasty tag stealers!


VERY GOOD IDEA!! That would also keep them CLEAN! I have seen some VERY dirty Webkinz!!!!!

THIS IS WHAT I CALL WEBKINZ ABUSE!!! ONE DAY I WENT TO WALMART AS ALWAYS I WAS HOPING TO SEE SOME WEBKINZ. I WENT TO THE TOY ISLE AND THERE WAS A WHOLE LOT OF WEBKINZ FOR SALE EVERY ONE STRIPPED OF THEIR TAGS! Those Webkinz sit there, never to be loved, never to be bought and owned, because someone stole their tags!!! I dont think we should do a bag cause i too like to feel my Kinz but we should do something!
