Default When buying Webkinz, check tag FIRST!

Hey everyone, this is just a reminder to check the tag of the Webkinz before you buy it.
1. Check to see if the tag is there (some stores keep the tag up front)
2. Check the name of the Webkinz so you can make sure you are getting the right one.

Personally, I have seen Webkinz with the tag taken out by a thief. Please do not do this. It hurts other people.

So, just make sure that you are not scammed, and if you see a Webkinz without a tag in it please take it to the front dest and/or tell somebody about it. You will be doing a good thing.

Just a reminder

UPDATE: Jazzymom43 has another reminder to everybody. Make sure that the tag is sealed before buying it also because someone could take out the code, wright it down and put it back in the slot. Then later the thief would adopt it at home and waste somebody's money. Bad bad bad.

Thanks for the great reminder! Sometimes, they have the wrong tag in the little pouch thing xD. I was looking at webkinz and i saw the B&W cheeky dog, and I looked at the tag and it said spotted frog xD. I told the manager, and she fixed it, and i got a free Tiger webkinz!

Great reminder! Thanks! There are just some sick and twisted people that would take the tag out! It's considered Theft, which is a real crime. So everyone, do not take out the tag! It won't pay off in the long run!

Yes! You are so right. I always make sure that the tags are attached to the pets I am buying. And it is also VERY important to make sure that it is the right pet.

My sister-in-law bought a few hippos when hippos were POTM. She was so excited and adapted all of them but did not get any POTM bags. Then she realized they were actually Rhinos, not Hippos. Well, they sort of look a like, you know? I was laughing so hard when she told me the story. But, then the other day I bought a pelican thinking it was a swan. So I guess I can not make fun of her any more.

So sorry you got the wrong one. But you sure did make me laugh. I almost did the same thing with the different snakes until I looked at the tag in the check out line. I would have had two of the same one.

Good for you for saying something to the kid and telling your mom. That was brave of you too stand up for what is right!!

It’s sad that people do that. I too have seen way too many Webkinz without the tag. I wish I could catch someone in the act. I'd march them right up to the salesperson. But as a parent it's good to see you standing up to other kids. Just make sure to be safe!
