Nope, they cost the same to dealers, I'll update the article.

The tags look like they are just hanging out in the open though. ?? From studying the boxes, it looks like they are really trying to convey all the things to do with the pets. Maybe people that were buying the plushies lately weren't really understanding what to do with them online. Looks like Ganz is giving more instructions with these.

At first I though "Cool!" But no. How are they going to fit them all onto the shelves?! And I Don't have any extra money!

Oh now I see the prices will stay the same! But still how will they fit them all onto the shelves?

Thats for the post about packaging - hate to say it but if somebody's intent is to steal the tags they will steal them - the one pet in the pix has the tag just in reach - about trees -Ganz couldn't have timed the annoucement better - right after Earth day -What's Owl going to say about this

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

I agree! If they're making this decision, what is with the Webkinz Video: Let's Make The World A Better Place!?!?

All of North America should take a lesson from other countries...REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE! In Germany, they recycle everything...papers, plastics, fruit rinds, leaves, coffee grounds, etc. We all need to catch the recycling bug. If you buy the webkinz in the box...make sure the box gets recycled!!! Spread the word about recycling, educate your kids, and make a difference in your own community.

Sooooo... the fact that it's RECYCLED cardboard that is going to end up in landfills that is supposed to make those of us that actually do care about the earth feel better?

Sorry but that still doesn't fly with me.

I am also confused by the fact they made an Earth puppy and are doing this, made a ptm video about helping the environment and then whammo. Excessive packaging that retailers might go for becuase it looks pretty. Give me a break.

I think Ganz needs to have a staff meeting and watch the POTM video for the Bluffadoodle. Stop talking out of both sides of your mouth and that packaging can stay stay stay away from me.

BTW... It is my professional opinion as someone that has worked in theft prevention.... that packaging is going to do absolutely nothing to stop theft. That's just an excuse they made up to justify the wasteful packaging they are using to make them more appealing so people will buy them, that's all.

Point of note.

I have seen the Littlest Petshop using this exact same packaging.

Walmart - Many Tags missing off Littlest Petshop, packaged like the new Webkinz packaging.
Liquidation World - Some Tags missing, again packaged just like the new Webkinz packaging.
Zellers - SomeTags missing, again packaged just like the new Webkinz packaging.

Vigilance on the part of your staff stops theft, not a pretty box. Watch your customers. Keep Webkinz on display where you can see who is doing what with them.

Places near me like Giant Tiger and Hallmark have alot of success with displays of Webkinz kept behind counters.
