Congratulations to Webkinz Insider member funkyc63 on finding all of the "Lazy Zums" in Zumwhere. In exchange for her hard work, she was awarded a "Zum Crossing Sign" to place in her Webkinz' house. funkyc63 also exchanged some of the Zummies she had been collecting for a "Field Hat" and a "Field Jacket". The Hat and Jacket can be sent via KinzPost. The Crossing Sign cannot.
Since entering the code from her first Kinz Klip on April 1st, funkyc63 and her daughter have been tracking, taking pictures, and fully documenting their experiences in Zumwhere. If you have any questions about Zumwhere, Zums, or Zummies, please check out her thread "I Caught ZUM-things!" located HERE.
EXOTERIC's "Zumwhere Adventures" Guide is also a fantastic resource. (Thread located HERE.)
Ganz has selected the winners of the Webkinz Newz Mother's Day Contest. Congratulations to Ric, Francie, Stephanie, Jennifer, and Rosalie on designing the winning small kitchens. Ganz has sent each of them a feature code for a Chef Gazpacho Stove and two Chef Gazpacho Place Settings.

We've been working with the Toronto Blue Jays for the past few weeks to help promote their upcoming Webkinz Day event on July 26th, 2009 vs the Tampa Bay Rays! The first 5,000 kids (14 and under) to enter the stadium will get a free Webkinz Cocker Spaniel wearing a limited edition Toronto Blue Jays collar!
The event at Rogers Centre will also be "Dog Day", where fans are permitted to bring their dogs to the game, with a pregame "pet parade" around the field.
Last year's Blue Jay giveaway was a huge success for the Jays, with the largest walkup ticket purchases of the season and fans lined up in the rain to get the giveaway Webkinz! The Ganz family attended the game and threw out the first pitch.
The Toronto Blue Jays are proud to continue the Webkinz giveaways this year as their goal is to provide value, with quality giveaway items. Both players and Blue Jays personnel's children have and play with Webkinz every day and all want their own custom Blue Jays collar for their own Webkinz pets!
We're thrilled that the Blue Jays have chosen WebkinzInsider.Com to help promote the event. We are excited to announce that we're hosting a contest to give away 2 Webkinz Cocker Spaniels, with the limited edition Blue Jays collars!
