Now stop complaining and go back to Webkinz World.



Forgot to add that if you send the box back, they will reuse it for newer Webkinz.
we who think its dumb and wasteful packaging are allowed to have our opinion just like you are allowed to have your positive opinion i dont tell you to stop your positive opinion and i dont degrade your belief system........i wish you would not do that to those of us who dont like this idea............. we are allowed to think negatively of this. too often any criticism is seen as ganz bashing when it isnt. fans and custormers are allowed to boo and to cheer.
so i still hold to my original posts, of which im allowed to post........
just because its probably recycled cardboard does nothing when 95% of the people will send it to a landfill. i just think ganz could come up with a way better solution than this, and the timing is very ironic. i also am as positive as i can be that the prices WILL go up, thats how businesses work. they may not go up right away but they will go up if they stick with this packaging. there is no way they cant. ganz never gives you the real deal right away......... they start out new games giving us good yields but as time goes on the real programing comes into play.

Where we live, it's pretty recycle UNfriendly. It costs a pretty penny for them to pick it up, and all they give you is a pretty small milk carton type container. So we haven't been able to recycle for years now. So yeah, I'd be throwing these out in the trash.

Guess I just don't see the point in the boxes at all. Looks like the tags are just hanging out as always. People will still just pull them off. This just makes them more big and bulky, and yes not exactly good for the environment. I hate packaging on toys anyway though, takes forever to get the toy out and you always end up cutting yourself up on it! Not a fan of this.

also lambchop, i always liked to pick up the plushies and examine them or hold them, i honestly think they look more appealing and inviting out of the boxes ---------- they look more real to a kid and even to us adults.


also, i liked to see the tags of what im buying when i cant return them. to see it they look tampered with. with this packaging i dont know if you can do that or not. i dont see how it solves the problem for them. jsut makes less products on the shelves for those stores who do it this way.
and even in areas that have easy recycling people in the usa where i live dont do it. the rest of the world is wayyyyyyyyy ahead of us in caring about things like waste. its a real shame.

hey violin, thanks for the clapps!

I understand that some of you believe it will be recycled cardboard, and I have a couple things to say about that.
1. It only MAY be recycled.
2. Recycled still uses the original trees that were cut down and only a portion is recycled.
3. We don't need this packaging in the first place, so were wasting the recycled stuff.
4. People won't keep the cycle going, they'll throw it away afterwards.
5. Many people can't recycle if they wanted to, here, they charge us to do things like pick up extra trash.
6. the're excuse that the tags are being stolen obviously can't be true, because the only ones who think it will help are those who haven't seen them, those who have seen them say they can access the tag just as easily.
7. 2-5 aren't even true unless it turns out that the boxes actually are recycled, if not, trees are being cut straight down and used once on top of all this, period.

Shame on you ganz! Shame. And think about this, all of you who are to selfish to care about the environment.

btw, one way the cost will NOT GO UP is only if they MAKE FEWER OF EACH PET, of which ironically the last two months there is three pets that cannot be reordered , that being australian shepherd, mysitc pony, and scottish terrier. there is the answer right there. costlier packaging, well just make less product and you dont have to stock as many on shelves then.

a solution to a problem we never even had. but now we do.............

Thanks for the update! I still won't be buying the Webkinz with the boxes though, knowing that I will sooner or later say this,"What can I do with these boxes?!"

I hope that this may cut down on the amount of stolen tags. It seems like it would be more difficult for someone to take a pet in the box and "hide" it while sneaking the tag out- who knows if this is really true though, just a thought. i think it will def make it easier for stores to display the webkinz as well as make them generally look more appealing to customers - lets get more people into webkinz!

I think that these boxes are a very cool idea, but after some time this might get annoying when I have to go out and buy a new Webkinz every weekend. For now I love the idea and I think it is very different from anything Webkinz has done for the Regular Webkinz Pets so far. Now I know what my favorite Webkinz Retailer Friend meant by boxes!
