That's great! Good work, Ganz!!! I used to be so mad when I saw a webkinz that I liked at a store- but someone stole the tag

Wow. I'm very disappointed with this new packaging. Didn't we just celebrate EARTH DAY? What a waste of resources. Ganz, please think this over. I've only ever seen one plush w/ a missing tag since 2007. Doesn't seem worth the extra expense and I won't buy any packaged this way. Why not get creative and not wasteful?

I think they are super cute but agree with it probably isn't eco friendly

That is good and nice packaging. I see a lot of tags off, especially at Walgreens. They put the pets in the back of the store, usually in a quiet area.

I like the design in all . . .but i like holding on to the stuffed animals. It is the best part (for me that is).

For those of you worried that you can't take the pet out the box because of resell-ability of the Webkinz you do not end up registering or because you would feel bad taking the "newness:"

*The front page of this thread/story says that retailers have a choice to order with OR without boxes. From the pictures on the front page, it looks the the tags are still attached in the usual way. Therefore, taking them out of the box shouldn't be a concern. Also, you could locate retailers that don't use boxes if you don't want to deal with the extra garbage or recycling. I'm sure many online-only retailers won't need to order boxes.

And just to clarify from my last post:

Yes I care very much about the earth and it would be better to abolish the packaging all together. The whole world would be a better place if everyone had the time and motivation to recycle and if shoplifters didn't prompt stores to increase the packaging for security. There may be a better solution and the box thing might (hopefully) be temporary until they figure out a better way. But considering that most retailers sell products in gobs of plastic/metal/and cardboard parts, I'd say Ganz is going light on the packaging relatively speaking. It's hard to make the best choice all of the time and, besides, Ganz is a business. Even with a few good intentions, large business tends to error on the side of their own needs. That's the way of the world.

I don't like the idea of the new packaging.

I'm glad they waited to announce until after Earth Day, because it seems like they're adding lots of useless packaging.

The code tags are still accessible, so it can't be a security issue.

It will add lots of expense with shipping. Webkinz used to fit into the smaller flat rate boxes, but not anymore! I'd be surprised if Ameriwade doesn't raise their shipping rate. I know all the sellers on eBay will have to.

It seems like a bad idea to me.
