Well, I have to put my thinking cap on for this one! I can't see the video that is out there (blocked at work), so can't wait till I get home!

At least I already have things on youtube. I agree with many of the earlier posts about how this seems not quite the right venue for a contest. But maybe they are just mixing it up. They know a lot of us use various sites and tools on the internet, and want to test the waters. It will get them more publicity. Not a bad thing from their standpoint.

But not all webkinz players can enter. With this in mind perhaps they should have some contests limited to younger players. Oh well, maybe just LOTS MORE CONTESTS. We will be so busy we won't notice/care that we can't enter all of them!

I have to agree that it is pretty unfair to the kids. I was going to say that if I wasn't a webbie mom myself I probably wouldn't let my kids enter this one.But the truth is I AM a webbie mom AND I still am probably NOT going to let them enter.

My reasons are pretty simple.
1. My kids are not allowed to go to youtube anyways. As far as I am concerned it is unsafe and has unsuitable content that is too easily accessed thus the 13 and over rule. i won't even get into viruses etc.
and
2. Most decent videos made about the "biggest webkinz fan" are probably going to have to show that fan. I certainly do not want a video of my kids floating around the internet as well as encouraging people to view it. I have not checked the rules about this yet so hopefully there is something about no actual people or something. Could you imagine a WI member winning and not even being able to show the video here because it would violate the rules. LOL


Somedays I really wish Ganz would go back to being for kids.

It is nice that they are having more contests, but....

They are actually encouraging people to be in the video with one of their suggestions of dancing to one of the POTM songs!


I don't believe that this is particularly "safe" for anyone under the age of 18 (or even perhaps 25!) if they actually appear in the videos.

If you look at the rules, they are still excluding people from Quebec, Florida and New York.

They are excluding anyone who doesn't have a video recorder (like me!). I am supposed to go and buy one just for this contest? I don't think so! LOL! Maybe I will get my niece to record me! My sister has a video camera!


It is not clear if the winner will be the most viewed entry from April 1st through the 24th or if they are going to pick a few of them and then those "few" videos are going to be the ones where you have to watch them on the 24th (and then just the number of "hits" on the 24th count).

Smile Re: Ganz Announces Biggest Webkinz Fan Youtube Contest

I don't think it's that big of a deal. I mean, there are other contests for kids to enter (Webkinznews, Communal Contests, Stadium Competitions, etc.) that don't involve signing up for a website that can give out personal information. I think its great that GANZ is reaching out to teens and adults with these Twitter and Youtube contests. Plus, if your face can't be shown on Youtube (like myself), you could just show off your Webkinz Collection or something without showing yourself. I am excited to enter! I think it will be fun.

Oh boy, Webkinz fans on YouTube always fight, I'm afraid this will make it worse.

I love the contest idea, though.

If my mom only let me have a YouTube account. ):

Okay, I went and looked and I don't see anything about people being in the video. It doesn't say that they have to be but it also doesn't say they don't have to be. lol Interesting.

I did however see this and can't say it left a warm fuzzy feeling.

Now I know these are probably standard rules etc but you might want to think about what they are saying. For example if you show yourself (or your child) in the video and submit it. Ganz now has the right to do WHATEVER they want with the images. Most likely nothing would happen but you never really know. They could take your childs picture and put it on any type of thing they want to. They could sell it to another company on the other side of the world that may end up using it or selling it themselves to whoever they want. There is no telling the product your child's face may end up on. Moral or unmoral. And there is nothing you could do about it.

Just food for thought.

This is very disappointing. So many people I know don't use YouTube. My parents don't approve of me using it, because they think it's unsafe.

And for the other contest, for kids younger than 13, I think that contest should have more than one winner. That way more kids can have the chance to win this awesome prize. Way to be all about the money, Ganz. **sighs** This is why I'm starting to like Build-a-Bearville better.
