Our local related Hallmarks send then to those of their 12 stores which sell wk well; they are all in areas with different populations centers. One does not carry any of the animals (including Ty & other collectibles) or statuettes the others do - but it has a wider selection of stationary/notepaper & pens of all ranges. They just distribute according to likely sales.
Mine had four so we bought them (four children) only to find out my husband got four alos on his raod trip so we are stuck with way to many!
Consider yourself lucky. Many people who want them can't find them, or have to pay big bucks for them. You have some great gifts for friends of your kids who are into Webkinz, and who weren't able to get any... or you can always try to sell them on eBay. They were bringing pretty good prices there the last I checked.
What a good Mom & Dad you are!!!
WI can only get information from Ameriwade, so if they say that, WI posts it, which hasn't been true the last two times. I guess some stores take some from others so some have none, while others have 4 or more. Ameriwade only has itself to work with.
I think it might have to do with the volume of webinz that the retailer sells. The Justice near me had 6 when I went in the beginning of February and when I was buying mine and commenting on it with the salesgirl she mentioned that another customer had just purchased 5 of them.......so what does that tell you about how many they may have gotten altogether. That particular store does a tremendous volume of business in webkinz in that they usually carry 12 of every new pet on the shelf.(and how many in back?) Retailers are required to buy the new pets in batches of 6 minmum....so if a small store only buys the minumum number of pets they may not get the hippo or only the 3.
I think they also left out whole areas! I've yet to see any, and I was looking when the March shipments all came in. Everything but the Hippos. Haven't seen any since either! I ended up getting mine off of ebay, and I wish I would have waited a bit, since the price has sure come down on there even. Next time I'll wait then jump on buying it early for these more "rare" webbies.
