BunnyGirl asked, "does anybody know if he is instantly being taken off shelves."
Hi all! They are definitely NOT taking the toucan off the shelves before they are sold. I just bought one today, and it is soooo cute. I think they are just making a very limited number of them, and no more. When those are sold, that is the end of them.
I heard that they are doing the "quick retirements" in response to a lot of collectors complaining that Ganz was saturating the market with too many of each pet. Thus lowering the value of "collecting" them. They are still doing a lot of pets in big production, but they've picked some to make in limited supply to try to get back to at least some of the pets being more "collectable" - or hard to find. I think it is probably a hard balance, but my understanding is that the change was in response to what at least some collectors had requested.
I know that eBay has a lot of them and the other retired pets advertised. So, you could try there if you don't find them locally. I sure hope you find the ones you want!
They dont take them off the shelves when they are retired they just wont make anymore !( in that Size ..they still can do the lilkinz in it ! ....not a bad marketing plan really , when they do the lilkinz it will be really hard to keep them on the shelves ! right ! I heard the stores that ordered them will get them but then thats it ! So if you see it buy it !
our local Hallmark got them in yesterday and they have them on the shelf but there going very fast. When I left yesterday there were 7 left and she said they will not be able to reorder them far as she knows right now.
What happens is each store gets ONE shipment of them. After that, no more come. But i'd hurry, because people will buy them up quickly! All of the dragons at the hallmark by me were gone in ONE day!!!! But no, they won't take them off the shelves. They let them sell and then they go off and enjoy their money
