Whatever happened to the positive ads? When the ads feature was first implemented in Webkinz World all the ads were positive.

Brush your teeth (with Arte)
Read a book (with Booger)
Wash your hands (with the black and white cat)
Go outside get fresh air (dog on the swing)
Turn off the lights (with the light switch that worked)

There may be 1 or 2 I'm forgetting.

I really wish some of the older ads could be added back into the WW ad rotation. Having 4 kids I liked the positive message they were innocently sending. I'm not saying I don't want to see the estore ads and get this pet a gazillion times but please mix it up a bit Ganz.

I agree! I noticed about a month back that all the ads were "new Webkinz!" "buy this!" "eStore sale!", and I didn't see the positive ads... though I'm sure that if I turned off the "product-placement" ads (you can do that in the "my pets" section), then there would be more of the "positive" ads. (but I don't really want to, since I'm too lazy. )

I was under the impression if you do this you also risk missing out on the great ads like Snow White and The Chipmunks and I don't want to take the chance on missing out on some goodies I guess I'll turn of one of my kids accounts and see if it brings those cute ads back.

You're so right! All the AD's now are actually advertisements! xD They show new Webkinz, things about the e-store, POTM, etc. I liked it when they were the cute, positive ones. My favorite was the light switch that actually worked! I would really love for them to bring those back ^_^

I agree, mixing it up a bit would be a good thing.

Ads about reminding children to brush teeth, play outdoors, turn out lights, etc. were about public service and well-being. I suppose Ganz now prefers to remind people to buy - buy - buy!!! It just goes to show, sooner or later, it's always about the money even in a kid's game.

We can have the ads removed but if another promotion crops up, the 30-day wait period to reinstate them makes this option unattactive. (Perhaps what Ganz was banking on when they instituted such a lengthy wait period?)

Yes, they should have more ads where the ads help kids make more healthy choices, all I see now are Estore, new pet and deluxe ads!

That is so true. I'd forgotten that they had those ads. I usually don't pay attention to them anymore because all they do is advertise new webkinz, stuff you need to buy!. I now minimize my screen so I don't even see the ads unless there is an event going on like snow white!
