Ganz is constantly amazing me with it's greediness and willingness to make it's 'target' customers feel less than and left out...is webkinz supposed to be for 6 to 12 year olds or not?...remember when ads in webkinz world were about eating vegetables and taking time away from computer to play outside?...remember when ganz seemed to care about the health and well-being of young people it says its site was created for?...this latest contest like the twitter one before it is just another example of leaving those younger players behind...the constant ads we now see on webkinz world are ALL geared towards tempting players to deluxe up or buy extra things at the e-store...two things totally beyond the power of 6 to 12 year olds...come on ganz...wise up and realize you're not fooling anybody...you are alienating your younger customers and angering the older customers that care about them...i used to think ganz was a great company...a long long long long time ago...if anyone there [with any power at all] is listening then perhaps some policy changes are long overdue...

Anyways I just wish this twitter, youtube etc tec stuff would stop.
I totally agree with you!!! I mean this is an awesome contest but its like they want to make it unfair for the kids... for ex. I want to get e-store but my mom says it a waste of money for something that is just on-line only... and I want e-store really bad!! It's like they purposely make the better and cooler stuff on-line and then they make so there is no other way to get it.

They do have another contest if you can't do the youtube one BUT there will only be one winner... AND they also state that youtube is to be viewed and used by the age of 13 and older. They know that at least 50% of their players are kids, so it doesn't make since that they would do this webkinz contest on youtube, and they should have made other contest equally awesome as the youtube one...

To be honest, I think this is unfair to kids (like me) who are unable to post on to YouTube.
I mean "Hello Ganz" a majority of the webkinz owners are ages 8 thru 13.

Well I guess I won't be entering this one.

Wasn't webkinz created so children would have safe place on the internet to play, but not anymore since Ganz is encouraging children to use unsafe websites.

But this is just my opinion.

Youtube is unsafe? But I do agree it is very unfair. I mean, I barely know how to make Youtube videos as it is. And since the majority of Webkinz World players won't get to do this, I'm wondering if Ganz made this up right before they fell asleep. I am still entering it though (love that sparkling pegasus or whatever!) but when you think of how many OTHER kids do, and can't make the videos, it is very depressing. And if they are bad videos, I'll bet you anything they will (sadly) get TONS of bad comments.

Wow. That's such an interesting prize. I can't believe they did YouTube though, because not many people can make good videos. Good luck to all who enter though.

Thanks for the information!

Hmm...i must think of ideas! Why are they making it on Youtube? I guess it makes sense but it makes it difficult for others to enter who are under 13.... good luck everyone!

I think they are LONG overdue for another ad-clicking event like the snow white one! I know they are doing the Chipmunk Squeakquel one but that is on webkinznewz like the snow white queen dress one was. That's cool too, but the ads that are actually in the Webkinz site itself are SOOOOOO much better and more exciting! They would be a lot fairer to the kids actually playing too. Most kids are probably not aware of WebkinzNewz or Insider so they will never find out about these Twitter & YouTube contests and never have a chance to win the Pegasus. They are upsetting the kids, their parents, and any other people who care about them. Not a good business decision if you ask me , but hey I'm not getting paid the big bucks, so....
