Default Re: Ganz should have stricter quality control on their plush

I personally think they're good quality. I have 115 webkinz and I only have one or two with stitching problems. A lot of the ones I've seen that were TERRIBLE were smushed in the box. Its sorta obvious that's what happened.

But I have to admit I have seen a few that are really messed up! And it makes me sad. But I've seen other stuffed animals with defects too! Not just webkinz. I've seen the defects worse in others. I guess it just depends on where you shop and your shipment... But I've never seen any mangled ones. lol.

Ganz itself does not make webkinz. A factory in China does. On the tags it clearly says "This product is made in China." There is no way for Ganz to control how it is made. And even if the plush is made very well, they can still be smushed together during shipping, and when they arrive in stores, people can easily mess them up.

Anyway, I haven't really noticed this. All the webkinz I buy are very high quality, in my opinion.

I don't mind. It makes it unique. I think it's cute. I would hate if all the plushies looked the same.
One of my cheeky's cat ears is pretty much nonexistant and hidden, while the other's is normal. I like that. And one of my emperor dragon's scales was sewn into the head so it isn't there either. I like that. But if any of the pets were actually hanging by a thread and low quality, not just misplaced features, I would contact Ganz about what you've noticed.

Lol you sound exactly like me I usually don't pay attention to the plushes either and my doggie chews most of them up anyway--i'd rather just have the code

TOTALLY!!!! Every time i get a webbie, i look at ALL of the ones of that kind, to see which is best. When i got my siamese, it's muzzle is totally slanted to the left side, so she has a lopsided muzzle.... and that was the best one there! You can hardly see my clover puppy's eyes! they are buried in fur. sigh.... like the only good webkinz i have, are my signatures, the wolf and calico, and they surprisingly look better than the ads. LOL but that is expected isn't it?

But if you go by that argument, no company would be responsible for their own products. The majority of toys are made overseas. Thing is, Ganz does have control over their factories. They are the ones who commission them and give them the exact details on how to make the plushies. If they're not satisfied with the quality, they can control that by dictating tighter quality controls (which will cost more money) or moving to another factory.

So, actually, the reason that the plushies are of low quality is because Ganz refuses to pay for a better factory.

Your right! Usually whenever I go to shop for a new Webkinz I always have to dig through all of them to find one that has a nice face.

agreed! I've noticed that some of my webbies don't even look close to the ones shown in the catalog!
