I sit on the currencies page under the Kinzapedia tab. I refresh and wait for the page to completely load before refreshing again. When the little red box floats by, I scroll down the page to get it to the blank part of the page where there is nothing to click on. That way I don't change pages in an effort to hit the little red box.

This one isn't as elusive as some have been. I'm using Firefox, and as soon as I opened Webkinz Newz, there it was, floating across the page.

Good morning to all and Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there

Just wanted to let you know that on Safari, for me, the teeny blue box with the ? is floating around.

Just like with the Victorian path, once you click on it, you are brought to the info. page to get your prize.

While I am very grateful for this and all the other great prizes from Ganz, it's a shame and inconvenience that this is happening again, especially after the last path worked correctly.

Good luck to all Keep well and keep happy

Dear Ganz,
I would rather have no contest, than for you to continue to give away items that your members previously paid OR traded dearly to acquire.
Thank you, 50ish
I'm sorry you and the others feel this way.
While I can see your point, I am so glad they do the contests. We are on limited income and cannot possible buy all the trading cards to get these things. I can't even find cards very often. Few places around me carry them and when they do, they are all out. I'm sure many Webkinz lovers buy them all at one time according to many posts here.
So yeah, I am more than glad they do the contests.

I love when they do this!!! I traded to get this awhile back too, but it makes me happy for others who can now have it plus now I'll get a couple more
I understand people wanting rares but this gives the kids & everyone a chance too get them & I don't understand why some people only like something if it's rare. If they don't have it & Ganz gives it away then they're happy BUT if they have it then they get upset because they don't want others to have it too. I think that's very sad & sends a really bad message to the kids.

You have to watch careful because the tiny box with the red X in it is floating and you have to click on it in order to get the blazer.

Well, I'm glad when they do contests, too.

I just wish they'd do NEW stuff instead of doing prizes people have previously had to pay to get. I'm on a limited income too (unemployed), and certainly don't have money to burn- which is exactly what I've apparently done with money spent on trading cards.

At the very least Ganz should have said all along that trading card items may later be click-to-wins, and given people the opportunity to make an informed decision about if they want to spend money on the cards. And if they want to risk trading other valuable items for what suddenly is commonplace.

I also HATE trying to explain this to kids who suddenly feel 'special' stuff isn't anymore, because it's everywhere. We've always had a lot of fun finding trading cards and entering the numbers... I am not kidding when I say that we've even planned a vacation around going to a store that carried Webkinz, LOL.

This just cheapens the whole experience, and it stinks.

Well, again, I think part of it is that people have paid real money to get some of these items. I understand that some people don't spend money on trading cards, but we did.

We've done them as parts of Birthday presents and special treats and sometimes I've slipped them into a book or in a lunch, and so on. Like I mentioned, we even planned our vacation two summers ago, around going to a store that carried them!

We've always had a fun time tracking them down, and entering the numbers... It's exciting when you get a 'good' prize (and keep in mind, it's not often!), and it is 'special'.

And it's just as special if you've traded something dear for what you thought was equally dear.

Having those same items be widely available... it degrades not just the item, but the experience itself.
And it's plain old just "not fair", which is pretty sad to hear your 9-year-old say.
That's not a good message to send to kids, either...
