I only know a few canadians on here.
No one said it was anyone's fault for being anything, unless they're a gloater maybe and I didn't see anyone accuse you of that, either. The problem goes way back -- since 'forever' they have excluded many countries and even states within countries {Florida, etcetera} because of state rules on giveaways such as that. However, those rules could be met, rather easily, if Ganz bothered -- which they never have. In fact, in this contest, open to "Canadians only" it is apparent already that Ganz considers Nova Scotia province as having left their Union or something since those players from that area of CANADA are not being able to enter, either.

It is also Ganz' fault that in Canada and in other countries that their products are not as available as they are in certain areas of the United States; I myself have sent pools and things to accounts held by some "Aussies" I know who rarely get any of the products, and surely not enough to get enough kc up to get anything such as new theme items and all.

We really should consider at least a 12 hour boycott...or flood the kinzville park with our pets..chanting kinz on strike! or something. ( crud...that flooding the park could cause one to be banned...so scratch that )

I just met an amazing new friend, and got all three dresses for a great fair trade! I still think that segregation is never good. But hopefully Ganz will not leave all of us out in this contest and in the future!

I'm scratching my head over that one. I hope to have the WIGEV updated by tonight (Friday night).

I'm going to go donate some stuff right now...I hope WI can host an Alvin and the Chipmunks Outfits contest! Although I have no Chipette clothing, I believe I have Chipmunk clothing to spare.

There was only ONE wCares pet, the regular size Seal, that was released in Canada with a wCares tag made available over a year ago. It was released several months after the pets in Walgreens were made available. To this day, you cannot find the plushie seal with the wCares tag ~ they were bought up in a heartbeat Canada-wide.

(B) When the Guinea Pig was first released through Justice only, Canadians couldn't get in on the action right away because we don't have the Justice franchise in Canada. The Guinea pig was originally released through Justice on April 1, 2009. It was made available to non-US residents on November 1, 2009.


(C) When the Opposum was released exclusively through Cracker Barrel, Canadians couldn't get in on that either because we don't have the Cracker Barrel franchise in Canada. The Opposum was released through Cracker Barrel on September 16, 2009 and also has yet to be made available to non-US residents.

(D) Furthermore, the Strawberry Cloud Leopard was released through Justice only on October 14, 2009 and has yet to be made available to non-US residents.

So unless non-US residents have friends and family in the US who will send them the plushies, or if non-US residents want to pay an arm and a leg for a plushie (and don't forget about the exchange rate to the US dollar as well as shipping and handling costs) or code only on eBay ... then non-US residents simply cannot get these pets.

Well even in USA you do not have Justise on every corner and if it is not living close by you have to pay shipping i have never heard of Cracker Barrel. Not to mention even if some pets sold just in one store somebody still have to pay $15 for it.Those Dresses are free and it is not that difficult to get more them one
On the other hand USA has big population so if they all can participate in an sweepstakes it is going to be a lot of those items in the trading room . smaller population means less participants , means fewer items, means huge advantage for those who have items, and they even did not pay for it
It is sad that Ganz did do these sweepstakes this way . Arguing so many people, putting Canadians verses Americans (I am either
There is no reason to do such event or any others similar events and call them a contest for which i believe Ganz should file a lot of paper work . While they could have done it like Leprechaun hunt or quick draw, floating items...There is plenty of other ways that do not need any paperwork no meter you are Canadian. or from Florida or other pleases.

It is also fine print that drives me crazy especially if others can not ever have any opportunity to read fine print so lots of people spent ours looking for it and not knowing they will never see it
Maybe Ganz though that not-Canadians will not know. Well they would see new items in the trading room... Or read about in on tweeter to with Ganz pretty much made us to sing up
That brings another painful topic of discrimination
so .... Well done

Unless there are some very generous webkinz pets in the trading room, i doubt i'll ever get these. I'm not gifted so i can't trade on WI. I'll probably give a fortune for them in the trading room if i can't win them myself. This is extremely disappointing.
