LOVE the Easter Basket w/ prizes but so disappointed that it's estore. I use the estore on occasion but this almost seems like it would have been a floating click to win type of thing in the past. I'll probably buy one basket depending on the price.

Too bad they all fall around the same time at the end of the month.

Hi Busymom122

Try buying Webkinz on Ebay. Its a lot cheaper than stores and you get the plush too. Stores are not so close to me either and the one that does sell the Webkinz only sells the plush no other Webkinz items and they are over priced. Try Ebay - get new ones for cheap!! Sorry you did not like my comment on the Estore.

I'm thrilled there's so much to do in April and don't resent Ganz for being the company that it is (which exists to make a sustainable profit, not give community service or non-profit services). It has the right to market products related to but beyond basic level membership. We have the right to purchase them or not. I don't believe that's fundamentally greedy. The owners may or may not be greedy in character - we can't know that. But the business model is sound and understandable. That's how they keep a free site running, yes?

I think there's a great balance of things that are free with membership (Spring gift basket, click-to-win, etc) and things that we may buy if we have the resources and wish to do so. I don't think Ganz owes us a thing. If they tip the balance to offering nothing at all for just being a member, then certainly a lot of people would quit. But they don't - and while the ads can get a little much sometimes and I have some issue with the amount and type of advertising that younger kids see, it's currently no worse than TV! If the marketing for additional purchase items gets too "too", there will be a backlash and either they'll learn or it will go down. But a business exists not only to provide a service, but to do so for money.

Thanks, Ganz for the great gifts coming our way this month. And I'm hopeful of being able to choose an e-store treat for myself - but if not, it's not your fault! And if others can purchase more than I can, I'm glad for them. It's so with houses and clothes and cars and "stuff". I expect it to be the same here.

Thanks for the tip but i have had bad experience on Ebay of not receiving items. Was not upset at your comment just was stating that the estore is very useful for our family.

I agree with Mommyflynn. I am disappointed to see the word Easter being taken out. Why is it that everyone seems so bent on taking away the names of Christian holidays but no one would think of
changing the names of other religions' holidays. So, yes, I am also disappointed.
