Exclamation Answered: Totally Inappropriate Ad On Webkinz World Log-In Page and WKN

I just opened the page to log in to Webkinz World and saw the most inappropriate ad. I am not even going to post the screen shot for fear of being yelled at, as I know the content is not allowed on WI either.

I'll just say it was an ad for a movie....combining the name Jack and the name for a donkey. I am so disgusted....... How can they advertise that on a kids site?

Internet Ad Companies sell packages to sites and some they sell are called "family friendly" (their words).

I know that is what WI purchases and if you EVER see something offensive on here, please let a staff member know so they can make Justin aware. He WILL do something about it for WI.

Unfortunately Justin doesn't have any control over WW or WKN. Best bet is have an adult call Ganz customer service to let them know what is being posted on their site. If you have a screen shot to send them, even better.

LOL! You're right not to post it here! And I'm sure if Ganz knew, it wouldn't be posted on their sites either!

But come on Ganz, very disappointing!

Oh wow, I'm really surprised at Ganz's recent decions regarding ads. It's okay if you see an ad here and there consisting of content targeted towards the younger kids (HOP, Pokemon, etc.) but that is totally unacceptable. I'm disappointed, Ganz

Oh goodness. I haven't see an ad like that on WKN. Perhaps calling Ganz tomorrow to let them know that you didn't like viewing that would help.

Glad to know it's not just me
If Ganz is going to allow ads, they should at least make them kid friendly.
