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.

You hit the nail on the head, the free plush dolls you get in a McDonalds Happy Meal are smaller, but they have higher quality stitching and material.

Three of my little one's Webkinz did not survive a month of light play and are now restitched in a few places and two of them are permanently shelved because they shed so much that they would be completely bald if she were allowed to play with them.

Ganz isn't in the customer business, they are in the profit business.

Their profits come from suckers like me who weren't aware of the problems until too late.

Or because of bad shipping, or because people intentionally or accidentally mess them up. What I'm saying is, not everything is Ganz's fault.

ALL companies are in the profit business.

Hmm....I've never actually noticed ths before. I just took a look through my webkinz to see if there were any 'malfunctions' that I hadn't noticed before. But, they all were perfectly fine! I have about 14 that have a plush, and all of them seemed very good quality!

It might have to do with the way they're shipped, how many they're fitting in a box, how they're handled etc.

If you're continuously finding very-low-quality Webkinz plushes, I would suggest contacting Ganz and/or telling the store's manager.

I've noticed these too. That's why I pick my Webkinz carefully. Also, my Sig. German Shepherd's hair is falling out. ):

True! My Pink-and-White Cat has legs WAY spread apart so she's practically lying on the ground! I got her at Target, and you could see all these Webkinz just stuffed into miscellaneous boxes.

Yes,I think they should make them better

Then they need to package them more careful.

Your definatly right. I've noticed a lot have big mistakes. Quite a few of my webkinz had to be sewn cuz the had holes. Also for my 3rd and 1st webkinz their smiles broke off! It was easy to fix the first but the 3rd one now has a completely different smile. Really Ganz? Either lower the price or rise the quality!
