The Pet of the Month items should ALL be equally as awesome so there are no disappointed customers who've bought an extra frog just to get the exclusive.
PLUS they should NOT make it random....we should be allowed to choose. Some people may want to keep picking the same thing....and not want any others.
If you have the option to choose, then I bet you anything kids and parents will buy more pets since you can select the Pet Of the Month item.
Certain people who love the snow maker may want 5 frogs so they can get 5 snow makers. But if they get randoms then they'd be less likely to take the $$ risk.
I can see it now.....someone in WI will have 10 snow makers in a room.....or 10 lurking lagoons....or music makers.
........oh and a U.F.O. for pets to ride in please. If that was a PET OF THE MONTH ITEM, and we could choose which item we got I would buy at least 5 pets.
Great ideas, and so well-stated. I hope you sent this exact note to GANZ via their e-mail address, just to ensure someone on their end will read it.
i now ike theponds and the unicylcle arent equal to the fun picture
--i agree..some of the potm items are not equal..the snow maker..unicycle..the star maker..even the ponds are (in my opinion are greater)..all we can do for 8 days is speculate on how it's going to go..
Yes, I agree with those who dislike certain items.
If we were not allowed to choose the special item then I would guess that many people would lose interest. Because what I see as being the most popular potential"attraction" of the Pet of the Month is chosing what item you want from the collection.
I'll say it again, I'll wager GANZ will sell HEAPS more webkinz if you could choose the item. Because, as anyone knows here on WI, that people want to have 3-5-8 of certain exclusives. Not 3-5-8 of the same donut seed package. I would stop buying the pet of the month if I got the same item twice in a row.
I'll go one step further, GANZ ought to be donating proceeds from WEBKINZ SALES TO AN ANIMAL CHARITY. There has to be a line between insane profits from merchandise and giving back to the animals that made you so successful. I for one would be a lot happier to buy a few extra if just $1 was going directly to animal shelters or the WWF or Sierra Club. ANHYTHING.
It's just responsible business practise....it's also the trendy move for ANY COOL company to do --- impress your young customers....be a role model....give back.
So.....are they listening??? Or are they only listening to the sound of the register?
The amazing thing about this suggestion is that it's a WIN-WIN-WIN. There is only more success from the idea.
All it would take would be to have another company start up with the same concept and make it known that they donate proceeds $1...or any amount....to an animal cause...and it will explode.
It makes customers FEEL GOOD and hopefully the owners of the companies.
As a marketer you WANT YOUR CUSTOMERS TO ASSOCIATE GOOD FEELINGS WITH YOUR PRODUCT. I'm sure Ganz is aware of this....
Look at the success of the Lance Armstrong wrist bands. People were going nuts buying them up for the cause -- and you couldn't play with them online.

If we can't chose they may find this promotion isn't that successful If I kept getting the items I didn't want why bother to buy these older pets that everyone probably already owns. I don't even get excited about the new pets unless they have a PSI I like as getting a decent exclusive is rare.
