I went to my local hallmark last week and they had one love monkey left. I was so happy but when i went to grab it I saw that someone had stolen the tag. They told me they were sorry and had none left but to check back this week to see if more came in with the new shipment. They didn't. So I have been looking online for them but everone I find is last years. The sellers told me that the monkey wasn't released this year that only the love lion is this years. Is that true? Is that the only 2010 love webkinz and my hallmark just happened to have some from last year?
I think that's very likely, but we'll have to wait to hear from Ganz to know for sure. Even after pets are "retired" they can come back, just like the Rottweiler did this year. I saw the love monkey at a lot of stores last spring, so it almost seems like the market was saturated with them. But since they are "seasonal" and not "retired", I think the odds are good that they'll be back this year. I hope this helps a little! (And darn those tag stealers!!!)
Guess I don't have much to add to what Bindi has said except that I have seen the love monkey advertised different places and I am sure you can find one this year. Ebay sure has quite a few of them if you don't find them anywhere else.
No You can go to just about any store that carries Webkinz pets. I was able to order ALL three love pets last year, already I think in August. I have 12 Love Frog/klip sets, 6 Love Monkeys and 12 Love Lions, PLUS the valentines T-Shirt assortment pack (in my store)...whoever told you that the Love Monkeys were not available for sale this year was not being truthful OR they have nothing to do with ordering the stock for Webkinz Look around, you should be able to find one somewhere
Almost every Hallmark is selling the Love Frog/Kinzclip set that Dixiecup mentioned. We are, which thrills me because neither I nor my sisters have the Love Frog. My sister has the Love Monkey, which is ok by me because we try not to have multiples of the same Webkinz, excluding the Pets of the Month.
The Love Frog/Kinzclip set, by the way, should sell for the same price as a regular Webkinz, depending on the store. Check Justice if you have one in your area. The one where I live has a ton of random Webkinz, and they might have a Love Monkey.
I'm going bananas trying to find that monkey lol. I have been to two different hallmarks and two wallgreens looking for them. The one hallmark looked at me like I was crazy and said "Are you sure it's a webkinz?). Then I looked at her like she was crazy lol. I wanted to buy one in a store because most of the ones on ebay are stock pictures and I want to make sure they look ok. I have seen a few in store with defects and tears. I love the plush as much as the online use. I have seen people talk about justice stores but I am on the east coast and never heard or seen one here. I'm kinda far from major places but I do have a target about 40 mins from me but I'm not sure they have new release webkinz since the other stores seem to have older ones. Any more suggestions for me? And thanks for the info so far!

The Target I go to has random ones, some new. You could check, but it's hard to say. Walgreens are awful to go to if looking for newer Webkinz. The ones here, which there are a ton and I have checked them all, usually have older ones, some retired. Amazon is another place to look for the Love Monkey. Not sure how much they will be, but you can trust Amazon, that's for sure. I got a Floppy Pig from there, and the code was unused and he was in perfect condition.
