Default Re: How True?????

This whole limited edition thing is very confusing I find. I am not able to find any Hippie Hippos in my area, except for one store, that had the 3. Meanwhile, in other areas people are finding up to 14! What is going on here? lol Maybe it depends on where you live, if you get a surplus of plush, or very few...if only ganz would let up know for sure...

For example, out of 3 Justice in our area only 1 got the Hippie Hippos. Heck, in the last 3 months only 2 out of the 3 has been carrying the new Webkinz..

Default 2 reasons why I am sure we will all get our wanted July pets.

Hello everyone so I'm sure most of you have heard about the July regular pets being limited to 3 pets per store. Do not fret about this! I have 2 reason why:

1) Remember how the minty mouse was only going to be 6 per store? My local Justice got like 10 of them. Even after I picked mine up.

2)I was visiting my local Justice about 4 days ago. I saw a hippie hippo in June! I couldn't believe it! I didn't get it because it's apperance weas one I wasn't too fond of. (Just my opinion)

Please think about this and don't fret about getting your July webkinz. Ganz is doing this as a marketing trick. Remember that. Somehow Hallmarks and Justices and Fye's and all the other webbie retailers will find a way around it like always. I hope this brings up hope for those of you who really want these July webbies!

((HUGS))~Kiki (Sorry if this is in the wrong place)

I find this funny:
1) With the Hippie Hippo, GANZ said that they were limited and everyone went totally berserk! Then, after a month or so, everyone's excitement died down. No one was bombarding stores, and i could bring my Hippie Hippo places without 10 people coming up to me asking where i got her. GANZ churned out more. AFTER the biggest portion of the money had been made.

2) The only reason they kept the Hippie Hippo limited for a while is because they got what they wanted. People weren't thinking, "OH I HAVE TO PAY A LOT OF MONEY FOR A JULY PET!!!" they were thinking, "Hmm, i don't know if i can trust GANZ. If they keep doing this, i may not buy webkinz anymore.. And if they go estore, that's a lot of money down the toilet..." and so on. People weren't freaking out like they did over the Hippie Hippo, they were MAD. I know that when i heard the news, i wondered why GANZ was doing it, because it wasn't turning people toward them, but against them. I'd bet money that i walk into Hallmark in July and they're 10 of each on the shelf. Marketing trick. Beanie Babies did it back in 1998, they said that all beanie babies were retiring, and what did they do in 1999? Put them back on the market.

Personally, i'm not worried either. I really hope that this post has assured some of you that ARE worried, too

I didn't know that about beanie babies - what a cruel trick by a company! I hope all the July pets are fairly easy to find. Usually I preorder, but since I can't now, I'm probably stuck trying to find them in person. I'd really like to be able to get all of them, but if I can't, I at least want the puppy. And maybe the camel.

I agree with you. I am going at the first of the month and scooping up the Petal Puppy and Mohawk Monkey.

I know, I paid 30.00 for a Hippie Hippo for my daughter on eBay thinking I wouldn't be able to find one, then a week later, they had 3 at Cracker Barrel.

I did the same with the Minty Moose ~ I guess I should have learned my lesson the first time ... .

Hopefully it will be the same way this time, and we'll be able to find the pets we want at a local retailer.

I hope your right. I was excited about the petal puppy, and then got worried when they said it was going to be limited. After the whole hippie hippo incident though, I have a feeling that even in the mad rush the first few weeks, you will be able to find some after the rush dies down. Atleast thats what I'm hoping!
