Did anyone notice some of these dates are on school days during school hours? I got all excited, because I saw they added a date near me finally, then...oh....great, never mind.
I thought GANZ markets to kids? Do they encourage skipping school?

I was thinking the same thing. I will definitely be calling the location I want to visit to make sure the date/time is correct.

They added a date near me and I am asking tonight. I mapquested directions but i'm just wondering if its in a good part of that city. I'm sure Ganz would pick a good area. I will worry about calling and confirming if I am allowed to go. Thanks for bringing this matter to our attention

We went to see the van on Saturday in Wheaton, IL at Cosley Zoo It was packed with people. The zoo had no idea how popular Webkinz is. My husband, myself and my daughter waited in line 2 hours. We were all able to get lots of prizes. They were very generous. They also had karaoke which was slowing the line down. Then they split it into a separate line which moved things along. You got a cd of all the first POTM songs. We did that as well which was an additional hour wait. They were very nice and passed out prizes while in line. We got clothing, figurines, bookmarks, lip gloss, and kinz clips. I cannot believe that these other places do not know that Webkinz is coming especially at a store. They will need police crowd control in the parking lots. People came from all over Iowa and Wisconsin as they are not going to have a van stop in their state. All and all, we did have fun. We could look at the animals while waiting in line. We could also go to the rest room while one of us stayed in line. The line was finally winding down by the time we left so I think everyone got something for their wait.

Today our Road Trip was actually put inside the Toys R Us...I was told by the manager that it was because they did not have electrical outside and they did not want to run an extension due to liability issues...I don't know if that was why we perhaps got a watered down version with no karaoke? I'm glad it was indoors though because it was hot and mosquitoy..

We were the first ones in line and really, there weren't as many people as I thought there would have been. We were lucky-I won a cd and dd won kinz clothes and stickers and trading cards...

I think the biggest surprise was when I opened the cd I read that inside information and loved the little comments that were inside. I hadn't realized all the songs were by Ganz Employees! What a special cool thing for an employer to do!

I'm sorry you had to wait in such a long line-hope it wasn't too terribly hot for you...

i called the toys r us in flatbush, brooklyn, ny. you could not find a ruder bunch of people. i called on sunday. they said call back monday and speak to the manager. i called monday and they said try again tomorrow. i called tuesday and they said they had no inofrmation. when i asked when they would know, they said "i dunno". i asked if there was someone else i should call or if i should call corporate. he said "nah". i asked asked if i should call back tomorrow he said "don't call here everyday".

on each day i called i was put on hold for long periods of time. multiple people would pick up and ask me what i needed.

i called corporate but they have no info.
very sad.
