Default Ganz getting sneaky with Webkinz Newz Floaties

To nite my kid clicked on a floaty in webkinz newz and a new tab opened on a Bank add.
How low can ganz get when they have to fool the kids with a fake floaty.
This as a parent just shows me how sleazy Ganz is with their adds.

Shame on ganz!!!!!

Yes, I think the adds are getting out of control. Especially where children are concerned.

Tone it down Ganz. It's simply too much.

The ads are ridiculous, perhaps install AdBlock...it works easily and solves this problem...puts the user in control of what comes up.

I'm wondering if your child kind of 'missed' the floating icon and clicked on the ad that was under the floating icon? I know that has happened to me. The floaters are designed to specifically go to the contest page they are linked to, so I'm thinking that your child just missed the floaty...but do look into an AdBlock program...they are free and work fantastic!!!

Hi
We have Add Block,and is was working. My kid said it was a dark grey floaty kinda like the penguin on WebKinz but a little different.With Add Block on she couldn't have clicked on a bank add cause they don't show up with Add Block enabled and there wasn't a floaty contest that nite.
I do the extra roll add on WebKinz Newz for her cause you have to temporarily disable Add Block and No Scripts to see the dice add.
It's sad what we have to go thru to avoid adds these days, especially on a kid's site.

I agree, Ganz ads have gotten out of control.
The floaty things are things kids would click on. It's just sad.
I love Webkinz, but same with the Super Mario thing, my little sister clicked on it trying to click the "X" on the popup. It's ridiculous. The ads on the side banners I don't mind, but others are ridiculous.
