Also not understanding how this will prevent code theft, unless, as mentioned, it is enclosed in plastic?
I believe they are already preordered.

In Canada, some retailers take out the tags and store them behind the counter. The box looks stupid... can't someone just manipulate the plushie out of the way to steal the tag?

Hello, let me introduce you Ganz's latest Webkinz the Earth Puppy.

Let's make a video for the POTM Grey Owl about saving the Earth says Ganz.

Shortly afterwards they then introduce us to excessive packaging that a large percentage of which will end up in landfills. Because honestly not everyone bothers to recycle or has time to do recycling. Those that do recycle I salute you, you are few and far between and I appreciate it anyway.

This new packaging will take up way to much space in stores. That means retailers will buy less of them because they simply do not have the space.

Take a collecter of Webkinz that doesn't adopt every pet she buys. I put them on my shelves to admire them but I do keep them piled on top of each other because there simply isn't space for me to display them. Now I am trying to picture my 300+ Webkinz with all that packaging on them. I think I am going to make my selections even pickier, not because of cost but space.

You take the packaging off something it drastically loses value should you decide to trade or sell it in the future.

This will be interesting to see how it all works out. But I really do hope that the price for Webkinz does not go up. And, also, I don't really see how the tag is protected... Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

They've had them in boxes like this at my local Walmart for a few weeks. I does make them stand out so you can find them and you can't help but notice them. You can see right in the picture that the tag is on the paw the same as it was before, so this is not going to help with stealing tags, so I don't see how that would be a reason.

Our Walmart had them in the box, but still had some not in boxes at a different part of the store.

I would come closer to thinking that some of the big box stores have requested packaging to make it easier to stock them prominently.

Target was really bad, more that 2/3 had no tags. Do these boxes show what come with the pet? That would be great!

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

I don't like this idea, it's a waste, and kills our earth! Tell ganz if you are against un-eco-friendly ideas! We need to stop killing our planet, this packaging kills trees, and makes more waste end up in landfills! I'm writing a letter to ganz! I hope everyone else does too! I won't be buying any webkinz sold in packaging! Shame on them for not thinking about this side of the concept, the store I go to (well, used to go to, I don't buy webkinz that often now, except to keep my account going) kept the tags behind the desk, this is a MUCH better idea, mark my words, i'm going to complain and not buy any webkinz sold in packaging. Please do the same!

I work at a retailer that sells Webkinz - to combat theft, we remove the tags and keep them secure behind the counter. When someone comes to purchase their pet, we match the tags to the nametag on the pet's bottom, and then tie them back on. This prevents people from leaving without a tag, as the barcode is on the tag, and prevents us from having unhappy webkinz fans with no codes on their beautiful pets. Everyone has been incredibly understanding and appears to like the method.

I am disappointed that Ganz is being incredibly un-earth friendly with this packaging... while it is true that we are able to recycle the packaging if it is just cardboard, I'd prefer not to see that extra packaging enter the recycling system at all...
