I have to say I think Ganz's "marketing" is great!! I was buying all the pets every month locally, as it got harder I went to the Web. I tried to start being "selective" buying only those pets I really really liked but those seemed to be the popular pets everyone else liked and instead of have 16 to 26 of each available my web sources started to have 6 or less. If I did not check every day and be willing to pay the additional shipping of them trickling in over the month I missed out. Now my addiction to everything Webkinz has been broken. I am no longer buying pets. Same for the other 14+ members of my family. We are also very close to breaking the habit of the Estore, I buy very little over 2.00 with the exception of the occasional "gift" for someone in the family. The "hundreds" of plushes are slowly going to local charities. So I have to say "Thanks". I was spending 100.00 + a month and now less than 10.00

We do not have any Justice stores where I live in Canada...and we also do not have any Cracker Barrel, another place that had some limited pets.

However, the one store for me that sells newer Webkinz Pets is Chapters (Indigo Chapters)....and they have every single one of the pets listed on the front home page for October for sale...so if any of these are limited to certain stores, I'd be surprised. In the past, we didn't get those limited pets, but as I said....ALL new October pets listed on the front page are available through Chapters in Canada.

Why is Ganz making things so 'mysterious' and difficult for consumers?? It's like they want to confuse and frustrate us. Do they think it helps their sales to make it hard for us to buy their product? I'm finding it hard to have any patience for this anymore.

Has anyone seen the Springbok yet? I don't think my Hallmark will have the billy goat. It hasn't been getting any new webkinz for a long time now. I can't wait to find out when both of them will become available for all stores.

I don't like the Justice stores, they're too expensive.

Plus, last week I bought a Dodo in a Hallmark in the mall. When I went into Justice with it the sales girl asked if she could look at it and she asked if it was an Oct pet. I said no it was Sept and she said they were not allowed to put any of their new pets out until the August pets sold. They had a lot of petal puppies and mohawk monkeys and sun bears out. It's 40 degrees out.......who needs a sun chair now?

I am in Canada and have ordered the Papillon from Chapters Indigo online. (www.chaptersindigo.com) It is due to arrive tomorrow. They have the Billy Goat as well. My friend received her Papillon today and I saw it. It is not as sweet looking as Ganz has made it out to be. I was disappointed in the plush. It looks so cute on the webkinz newz, but not as nice in real life.
I have been having a difficult time finding stores with new Webkinz and found out that Ganz makes the stores buy 36 of the same kind of pet. Small stores can't afford that kind of purchase so many of them are getting out of selling them. So if the store wants to have even just 4 new pets, that is a pretty expensive order! The majority of stores that sell Webkinz are small. I have no idea why Ganz would do that.

Isn't Justice an American store? If so, I will not be going there because I'm Canadian. Carlton Cards... not sure if it's Canadian and American or not. I'll have to check.
