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!

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
Rep! Great reminder! You wouldn't want to buy a Black Cat and find out that it had a Googles tag when you adopted it!

I always make sure i have the right pet. I have seen a handful of pet with out tags. I remember the other day (yesterday) i found a lil kinz black bear without any of its tags. And i always seem the see retired St bernards with out any tag. It's very sad to see YOUNG children steal tags just because there parents can't afford to buy the plush. This is a very good reminder for people.

Here's something else to think about (I have had it happen TWICE) Inspect the tag carefully to make sure its SEALED! Theives are getting more devious. I have bought a pet with the tag intact, and then gotten home only to find that the plastic has been carefully slit, the tag pulled out (then I guess they wrote down the code and took it home and adopted it,) then put the tag back in the plastic. Without EXTREMELY close inspection...you couldn't tell So look really carefully. On the second one, when I adopted it and it said that the code had already been used...I contacted Ganz, and they had me send in the tag, that way I could prove it was mine, and had not just written the number down. (I made a copy beforehand, in case it was lost.) Then they (said) the shut down the account of the thief!!!

Oh yeah...and they issued me anew code for the pet too.

Read post above....please...for your own good!

Thank you for the excellent reminder. I always look to make sure the tag is there but I never thought about reading the plastic tag to make sure it was for the right pet. That is an excellent idea and it's so quick and easy to do.

Thank you also to all of you who shared about buying the wrong pet! You have made me feel much better. Today I bought a Cocker Spaniel for each of my kids to save until May. When I got it home I looked closer and they were American Goldens! I laughed so hard! My kids don't care, they were just excited to register the dogs early but I felt pretty silly. I didn't even think to read the tag because it looks just like the cocker spaniel I had when I was growing up.
Later I looked at the Webkinz cocker spaniel picture and it looks more like an english spaniel to me.

I appreciate several points that you have made because I never thought about tags in that way. I always check for a tag, but I have to admit I don't look that close, but I will in the future. Thanks for the warnings. I must say I have led a very sheltered life, it would never have occurred to me as a child to take something from a store without paying for it. Because not only it is just, so wrong on so many levels but also stealing hurts everyone. And I would never be able to bear that look of disappointment in my mom eyes. I jump when the buzzer goes off in the stores and I know I haven't done anything wrong.
