Not all Canadians live in a border town. I live on a military base in 4 Wing Cold Lake, Alberta. Look it up on a map .... it's a heck of a long distance from the US / CDN border.

The Guinea pig was originally released through Justice on April 1, 2009. It was made available to all on November 1, 2009 ~ hardly a few days wait. I know because I keep notes on everything I buy, when I buy it and where I bought it from in an Excel spreadsheet.

I didn't even mention the Strawberry Cloud Leopard, but it was released through Justice only on October 14, 2009 and still hasn't been made available to everyone.

The Opposum was released through Cracker Barrel on September 16, 2009 and also has yet to be made available to everyone.

And yes, IMO, your comment was an angry and sarcastic one, and I do not respect your lack of diplomacy or your lack of knowledge of Canadian geography.

You know, you can get a passport, cross the border and walk into walgreens

Phffffft ....... as if.
Hey, MysticZon, thanks for the info. I was really disappointed that I couldn't participate and I do wish that everything Webkinz was available to ALL webkinz aficionados but I now see that that isn't so! (I did know about the poor people in Florida and New York--they are probably shaking their heads once again!) Anyway, this is just a game (Yes, it IS!!) and I have other things to be busy with this weekend. All you Canadians who can participate--go get those outfits! More power to you!

I think it's just for legal reasons. Maybe others don't know, but for legal reasons, Canadians miss out on online video watching and merchandise. Whenever we go to Target, it's like a wonderland filled with stuff we can't find in our Wal-Marts. All of this is because of restrictions placed by the government. Perhaps Ganz had to, or the company that owns the 'Chipmunks' series chose this?

Also, in defense of the Canadians getting told they get everything the Americans get, that is untrue. The Cloud Leopard is yet to come, and everyone I know was psyched for it. Most Ganz merchandise takes a while to get to us, and that's just Toronto. In our cottage further up North, they still haven't gotten many stuff from 2009! I'm not saying that Ganz is making things right, but I kinda want to.

I am sorry to people outside of North America, who regularly get shutout from a lot of our things.

GANZ IS BEING REALLY STUPID.
Think about it. Remember all those contests for both U.S and Canada? So this is what we get, huh? Well then, keep it up and you won't be getting any money from me.

And I'm not complaining...! Come on, it's not that bad. I can still GET them, I'm thankful for that! Think of how many people in this world cannot get them, period.
Or think of the many people in the world who cannot even get clean WATER... and our problems are suddenly insignificant.

These dresses are just virtual items, no need to go all angry about a few pixels. Ganz gave us many dresses and other items before.... Why attack the group who cán get them over this? It's not their fault...

Ganz probably had to do this for a reason... let's give them a chance to tell us why?
That is a good way to put it. We all DO get too wrapped up in a few pixels on a screen... And it's not really all that bad, 50,000 prizes means SOMEBODY in the trading room or elsewhere will be willing to trade it. And if they want too much for it, move on. Sure, your pets won't have it, but hey, it's just an outfit. You have to think what you would even do with it... I mean, I'd probably wear it for a day maybe, get tired of it (unless it was the Brittany one) and trade it. Anyway, good luck to all of you out there in Canada!

Anyone else try calling Webkinz customer support? I just did and received a telephone recording telling me to leave a message with my contact number. Oh well, worth a try.

Ganz shouldn't of excluded so many contries. Sure it makes it easier for Canadians to win but still the USA has a huge population of webkinz owners. Or maybe this contest is for Canadians and there will be another for everyone else

Come on, it's one contest. Even so, if we were included, we probably wouldn't be in the first fifty thousand anyway.
