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...
I guess I should've mentioned that we buy the cards also & yes it is exciting when you get the 'good' stuff. BTW-I'm laid off as well. When they did Amanda panda chest which we got from cards we had paid for he said we had to buy it & now everyone will have it. I understand how your child feels. I told my son you still have the item & now more kids can be happy. He thought about it & now it doesn't bother him, In fact when he saw this one he said YAY!! more happy kids & more for me! I tell him that if you place value on things or yourself by comparing to what other have you will never be truly happy. Hope this helps

I used Firefox for the 6 accounts I am helping with and caught all the jackets for them in about 10 minutes time.

I use Firefox with peek a newz as well and it seems to work better for me.

I forgot to mention, I have bought the trading cards by the box as well and it really doesn't bother me that the prizes are click to win. I once bought 4 boxes of them all in one shot from a friend.

That means I can get access to more of the items that I want so I can do a really cool room theme for myself.

There is alot of advantages to getting the prizes from the trading cards and getting the same items through click and wins. For one you get to have them before everyone else does and have duplicates when they become cli and wins to decorate a room with etc.

It's not that bad.

I have been looking for at least two hours and not seen a floating pathway or floating jacket ... very disappointing to the owners of the four plus accounts in our home!!!

Happy Father's Day to all WK Insiders members!

I have tried several times throughout the day and clicked on 50 pages each time....no floating jacket.

edited to add: I finally won by using IE instead of FF. It only showed the little box with a red X on it.

I agree with you on both your posts.
My daughter loves to get webkinz or cards as much as the next kid. I make it very clear that our money is limited and I'm just not going to pour a lot of it into pixels for make believe clothes and items. She's okay with that. She loves playing with the stuffed animals and likes me to click and win, peek a news, or just play and earn. She knows what rares are and I've stressed that we just aren't getting them. I refuse to trade for them and if we miss an item somewhere, oh well on to the next fun thing. If we get something like this blazer, how lucky we are.
