3 things bad about the boxes--1 it costs more, 2 it is less earth friendly, 3 you can still steal the tags! bad idea in my opinion.

I have seen these new boxes at Walgreens. I think they are pretty cute.

I think this is a bad idea. It doesnt help keeping codes safe, it looks like. and, even if you recycle the boxes, not everyone will, and trees will still be cut down too make them.

This is a smart idea, but there's one con to this-- I'll probably end up hurting myself on the packaging if the 'Kinz are secured to the boxes.

Thumbs down Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

The only thing the packaging does is give the illusion that a piece of fabric constructed of petroleum by-products by an underpaid worker in a foreign country might be worth $15. And maybe provide more advertising for Ganz. I'm with romeo on this one - can't they just design a (recycled/recyclable) plastic tag with a clip or lock mechanism?

Unhappy Re: Ganz Introducing New Webkinz Packaging for June 2011 Webkinz!

In my opinion,
This is not smart....they just make more trash! At lest they should make them out of recycled bottles or something!

I have mixed feeling about this new packaging.

Thieves are going to steal tags no matter how well they are consealed.

Lage bulkey boxes mean you need a larger bag to put them in, and a much larger box to ship them, which in turn means higher postage.

Yes, the boxes can be recycled, but I think the point is to avoid excess packaging in the first place.

i do not like this! because when i get the pet i like to hug it and sleep with it and usally i still have the tag on cause i haven't put it on webkinz yet! I don't put all my webkinz on at once. And my mom said keep the tag on them in cause really fast i grow out of webkinz (which hasn't happened yet) so then we can sell them on ebay. But if they are now like this i would have to take them out of the box to sleep with them so them they aren't "brand new" like!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All of your environmental concerns about the extra packaging make sense, but I think Ganz is stuck with a difficult dilemma with the shoplifting. The reason they are taking extra measure to prevent shop lifting is to prevent loss of money right? Putting them at registers or in a locked case sounds like a solution, but they would just be trading one loss of money for another. I imagine most of their sales happen when children grab a Webkinz within their reach and beg their parents for it at the checkout. A lot of sales would be lost if the toys were not easily accessible to their primary audience. Even for adults who might pick one up out of convenience on their way home as an impulse buy or surprise for their kid would be deferred from the time over head of asking for assistance to access the Webkinz.

If we want to keep playing with our awesome Webkinz, Ganz needs to stay in business. I'd say your best bet right now is to recycle the boxes. It's up to us to carry out the environmentally friendly message that Ganz tries to spread throughout Webkinz world. Let's give them a helping hand and keep them in business at the same time.
