Default Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

A new front page story has been added:

Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

Thanks to Robert at our partner webkinz store, Ameriwade.Com, for letting us know about something new that Ganz has done with Webkinz packaging starting next month.. Retailers are now able to order Webkinz with or without outer boxes!
Click the image to open in full size.
This new display style is a welcome departure from the pets alone with hang tags because the codes were so easily ripped open and stolen without shopkeepers noticing until it was too late. The boxes should help prevent loss to shopkeepers and also allow them to display the Webkinz pets more prominently in their stores!

Robert has also just let us know that both the Webkinz Mystic Pony and the Webkinz Scottish Terrier are both sold out at Ganz, so retailers will not have a chance to re-order. If you haven't already secured a pre-order and want either of those pets, make sure you buy your webkinz right away! Our friends at Ameriwade are helpful and reliable as our official partner and you can get flat-rate $5 shipping on every order!

UPDATE: To those assuming that the new boxes will lead to a price increase, the cost of the Webkinz with or without the boxes (retailers can choose whether to order with or without the packaging) is exactly the same! It is also highly likely that the boxes are made from recycled cardboard for those with environmental concerns.

Oooh, how cute! Very smart, too. The only complaint I have about this is my trash can fills up too much already and it's going to be hard, constantly stuffing Webkinz boxes in there... I think I'll learn to live with it, though. XD

this was a smart idea of ganz
although i personally don't really like how it looks, it will prevent tag stealing
i wonder if signatures will come in those boxes...if they do, i wonder how they'll look

Neat Idea ganz!

It'll be weird with packaging. We should've realized MAZIN hamsters were in boxes for a reason.
It wouldn't be neccesary, in England. we have these things by the doors that can tell if you've taken something. And in some supermarkets they even have like xrays!

I don't understand how this will stop the stealing of tags, because they are still right there within reach.... unless the entire thing is encased in a clear plastic box which does not show on the photograph?

This seems like a good idea... but hopefully more packaging won't cause the price to increase.

Cute! It's good they're taking action too, I see code-less webkinz ALL the time. Mostly at Target & Walmart. I feel bad for them :/

This is ridiculous! The world is already struggling from loss of trees, and Webkinz is a huge company that produces tons of Webkinz! A lot of Webkinz = A lot of boxes = A lot of paper = A lot of trees being used! This is a terrible idea!

Plus, shopkeepers could just put the Webkinz behind the counter!
