Default Webkinz Opossum Described as Exclusive 'Preview' by Ganz

A new front page story has been added:

Webkinz Opossum Described as Exclusive 'Preview' by Ganz

In our previous article detailing the soon-to-be-released Webkinz Opossum at Cracker Barrels around the US, we wondered about the wording in a press release issued by Cracker Barrel.

"It is a tremendous honor to be the first retailer that Webkinz has worked withto create and distribute an exclusive pet in this hugely popular collection,"says Cracker Barrel Merchandise Buyer Karen Smith.

As most of you know, retailers like Justice have released semi-exclusives, such as the Webkinz Guinea Pig, which were released to all retailers a few months later. Accordingly, the wording of this press release led us to believe that the Webkinz Opossum might be a fully-exclusive pet, only available at Cracker Barrel.

Thanks to Zameron from our Webkinz Forum (and our retail partner at http://www.ameriwade.com) for pointing out the following ad in Webkinz World, indicating that the Webkinz Opossum is an "exclusive preview release" at Cracker Barrel.

In addition, the wording on the Webkinz Newz announcement of the pet also includes "exclusive preview release". What does all of this mean? It means that, after a set amount of time, all Webkinz retailers will be able to order the Webkinz Opossum and all of you that aren't near a Cracker Barrel will be able to grab one and have the beautiful Gazebo for your outdoor yards! How long? We're not sure, as Zameron has pointed out that the Hallmark Exclusive Webkinz Arctic Fox is still not orderable by smaller retailers, though it was supposed to be available 60 days after the initial release.

Hmmm.. Justice may have been able to get them because they are a bigger retailer... Smaller retailers such as Ameriwade have not been able to order them.

That opposum is soooo much cuter than in real life. Thank you Justin for you info and the hard work you put into finding out updates for all of us here. Can you call a Cracker Barrel and pay by phone and have one shipped to you? That may be an option for those of you who do not have a Cracker Barrel nearby.

I've also seen the Arctic Fox is a Justice stores recently. Maybe they picked up the exclusive preview for a few months after Hallmark's initial order?

It's possible that Ganz is starting from the top down with semi-exclusive releases... The bigger places like Justice get them first and then it trickles down to the smaller places... My local store doesn't even have the Guinea Pig yet...
