The winners of the Best Dressed Pet contest have been announced. Congratulations to Carmel, Angie, carrie, raeven, and adam michael. Ganz has e-mailed each one of these players a code for a Webkinz Phoenix.

NOTE: In response to all of the questions we have been getting about the Fire Fawn's outfit, the Orange Army Shirt and the Red Sports Pants used to be wShop items. They were retired from the wShop back in August of 2007. The Orange Army Shirt isn't available in Webkinz World anymore. The Red Sports Pants are now a KinzStyle item that you can get with the code that comes with the Red Sports Pants for your plushie. The Pants cannot be purchased in the online KinzStyle Shop.

Congratulations to all the winners! That was a good idea to use retired items!

I agree with a lot of the comments here that the winners must be randomly picked. My daughter had the same outfit as one of the winners too. Congrats to the winners!!!

I am so happy the winners were finally announced and even though I didn't win my little Nonie (the elephant) still thinks that she was dressed to the nines. I was concerned about using retired items, because of some of the results in past contest, so I am glad to see that it didn't disqualify anyone. I would like to extend my congratulations to all of the winners - that is an absolutely fantastic prize and is one of my favorite eStore pets.

What if this contest had been a trophy room contest? If someone only used rare and retired trophies and won, is that anything different from this? No, it's not. You call a trophy a trophy whether it's retired or not, right? A Wshop item is a Wshop item whether it's current or retired. You have to remember that Ganz thinks differently than we do about the value of an item.

I believe that the selections are randomly chosen. I believe they look over the five random winners just to make sure that none of them are completely revolting, and then they post them as winners. Honestly, I am so glad they choose winners this way, because I don't want any of them to waste their time poring over contest entries when they could be doing better things, like fixing glitches and creating new and exciting activities for us to do in WW.

I disagree with the previous post. Your analogy doesn't suit this situation. The w-shop only rule was made to prevent an unfair advantage. Using an item that was last open to user in August '07 is rather unfair. Ganz should have taken control and shown loopholes don't pay off. I'd guess it's random, because I'd seen better than that Penguins on our very boards. Too bad I didn't enter.

I understand what you are saying, but I read the contest rules thoroughly and saw nothing about Ganz saying use only Wshop items to prevent "unfair advantages." I think that is just what is assumed. My point is, they don't look at retired items the way we do. Look at how items are valued in the trading room. If someone tried to trade an orange camo shirt for a googles PSI, the googles PSI owner would receive the warning that they are about to exchange an item of value for a regular item, when in fact the orange camo shirt is worth much more.
I think that the only winner who broke the rules is the cow, because in my opinion those sunglasses are not red. They are pinkish/purplish. The rules did not state that Wshop seasonal or retired have to be excluded. It just says Wshop, so the fire fawn did nothing wrong in my books.
