Wow that was very well said I agree with everything you and your daughter came up with. I have been noticing the boringness of the daily activities lately. The quick draws need to go. And the % off of the items, who is going to buy those items, I doubt anybody needs them at that time, and you can't sell them for a profit. As the jellybean challenge goes I agree we should be awarded more KC for coming on the website and trying it. Bingoz needs to go it is impossible to win unless you have over 20 free balls. Thanks for writing this out I really hope Ganz sees this and takes the opinions into serious consideration.

Not hard at all! It's Ganz choice. And all of us as consumers have made it easy for them by continuing to buy their products irregardless. I mean seriously, we've proven that no matter how many glitches, no matter how impossible the games, no matter how stingy they are with the prizes, no matter how monotonous they keep the games, we are all STILL going to make them an UNBELIEVABLE amount of money this Christmas! They have the means to make WW ALOT more exciting on a regular basis, they have the money, therefore they can obtain the knowledge to do it, but if we show we are content with what they've given us by continuing to buy a gazillion dollars of their product on a regular basis, then why should they? The answer lies with us, the consumer, to slow way down on our webkinz buying to show the company it's time for them to step up their game. They have the means to make this a long-standing hobby for future generations, or to make it a flash in the pan like beanie babies, depending on how they continue to treat their customers.
It sounds to me like Ganz is not the only ones who are greedy. It seems like the adults are all saying "gimme gimme gimme". This was created as a virtual world, not your world. If WW upsets you or your children, don't play for a few days. Take a break and finds something you can do together.
My neice can take it or leave it. She enjoys being on WW but is not bound to it everyday. I think this is a healthy way to look at it.

I don't feel greedy. I just wish it was easier for my kids to earn money and buy a few pieces of furniture all on their own. Its hard to keep elementary kids interested in the site when it takes so much work for them to obtain things. I know its a good lesson, but my kids wouldn't have much at all if I didn't play in the arcade for them. I would just like to see more looks of satisfaction on their faces.

I think some of us would like to offer constructive criticism. I prefer my kids playing on Webkinz rather than other kids sites full of advertisements and links for them to click on.

I hope Ganz isn't chintzy because they want us to buy more pets to get the kinzcash.

Very Good point. There are a lot of people who say Gimme Gimme Gimme. I would like to agree while at the same time disagree with that one statement. The rest of what you have to say is true at every level. I would say there are a lot that want things handed to them on a silver platter. I would just be happy with only slightly easier/better KC on some things and a lot better for trophies. While I am not a big trophy person and have not really tried to get any thophies other than the Skater Kat trophy I have won a few. My children and wife have not won any... Theresa doesn't care if she never gets one, but my eldest daughter feels more accomplishment getting a trophy than she does getting the money to get something from the store or curio shop. That is saying smoething if you have ever whatched how much that girl likes to shop... even virtual shopping...

Even my daughters don't Webkinz everyday. We played dinosaurs (a family game with the dinosaur collection that started with my oldest child and has been added to and passed down to the youngest, but we all still play with it. including daddy.) just finished lunch and my eldest is already out finding "snails" in our garden and seperating them but their shell types (she seperates them by conical, rounded and no shells/slugs.) My youngest daughter is playing with her Dora Babies and asking me to get off the computer and play with her again. My son is taking a well deserved nap after a long morning of play. (We get up around 5:30 to 6:00 am and he is on the go an moving from getting-up until layed down...) Well I have to go back to work. My children are an awful awesome responsibility, and as much as I love WI and Webbies, I have to say you guys are a distant second to my darlings.

Sincerly,
Russ

P.S. How many other daddies are reading bed time stories to their daughter's baby dolls out there? LOL, only my children could get me to do this...

i can do skunk sweeper in my room for $60 on single player hard. I can easily rack up $1000 in an hour, if i am not tired even more.

Over all i agree with what you have said. This is supposed to be a child's website and there are so many things that frustrate me, i can't imagine if my son was into it the way i am. He has a few games he likes but is only 5 so that keeps him happy.

We have a funny way of saying "nothing", that makes it almost as fun to him to get nothing in the gem hunt or charm forest, so he is ok with it.

there is no way he can do any of the jobs on the levels higher that the first so jobs are useless to him. He can maybe do the shoe matching game, but not in the alloted time so... i have played and raised my neices levels out of her range on some of the jobs-and she is 14. so she does what she can and i make her extra money on the 2nd level high paying jobs.

He has a few games in the arcade that he can play better than me-but they are low paying games so there is no way he could keep his pets fed if i wan't sharing the account.

In gemeral i agree with you ramses. but need to get going on dinner. i will continue my agreement of your vent later

Rames, this thread got bumped up and I found it today. Excellent thoughts!

I have always felt like the quick draw could be more like the scratch-off lottery tickets - maybe awarding 10 KC if you match two numbers, and going up from there. Even give more chances if you match a couple of numbers. Also this stuff is all in reality pixels and it doesn't cost Ganz a penny to give more W-shop items away and also Curio Shop items.

W-Shop coupons are fun and they do reinforce math skills - they should have at least one "drawing" a day!

I don't bother with Bingoz any more - I think the coupons should be eliminated. I do love the occasional "extra ball" concept!

I can't judge much about the games. I enjoy Quizzy's Word Challenge which is definitely an adult game, but I can see where it would be fun to build words with your kiddo! I play a mean Cash Cow and I think it might be fun for children. Some of the games I just can't do - anything involving pointing and shooting like the pie throw is hopeless!

The jobs are way too frustrating for kids - or they must be. I am a professional musician and I can't get beyond level one of the piano playing job! I've mastered the Hamburger Chef and that's about it. I have never passed the first try at the flooring specialist!

Anyhow, these are very thought-provoking observations you and the rest of the posters have put here! I have really enjoyed reading this very sensible thread!

Ramses,
I really do like your thoughts and agree with you. To the person who said we are greedy, I have to disagree. Webkinz plushies are more expensive than other stuffed animals. The reason most of us buy them is for the code and for our children. Like you, I had to start playing to help my granddaughter. I read her the questions and help her answer them. I think it is a great learning experience.
However, most of the games are too hard for her as are the jobs. Granted she is only 6 and will grow into the games as she gets older.

But I don't think it is greedy to expect a little more for activities that are only occassionally provided. If it has a name like WOW, then I expect WOW not Gak. Big Kinz Cash should be Big not 17 kc.

I agree with whoever stated that GANZ probably doesn't want to make it too easy so we have to buy more. However, they need to be aware that there is a thin line and if our children are not happy and playing then we may quit buying altogether expecailly if the prices go up.
We do like Webkinz and this site. And we are mostly happy. I am just hoping someone in marketing is monitoring this site to get feedback. I post to express what could make things better as I feel most people are doing. I was always told when you bring a problem also bring a solution. This is what this thread has provided. Hopefully, GANZ will get some good ideas and incorporate them in 2008. Happy holidays to all.
by the way, what did you get ofr the potm extra. We got another gold coin.
