thanks secret ninja. i am really not too worried about it. i live with the idea of if it's meant to be it will be. i know it's bothering a lot of people but for me i am wasting my energy on something that i can't change. i sent ganz a message, called and left them a voicemail and will have to wait to monday to talk to someone. until then what can i do??? you know?

i do think it is important that everytime there is customer complaints each person should let ganz know. that is the only way ganz WILL know we are disappointed.

i don't agree with people attacking eachothers countrys. this would not be such a huge issue on this thread if it wasn't the united states. i think its sad that a lot of countries are "used to" this problem. i had no idea until today so many people get left out of contests. if ganz couldn't get this contest to everyone they could have offered it in the kinzstyle shop for a limited time, like the superhero costume. when there is a will thers way!

The only thing I can see an issue with this is that some people do have international access and would've seen the ads regardless. It's why they have to use the IP issue to get people trying to find a way around some things that are specifically for certain countries.

also, it is a nice idea to boycott but i don't believe even if a great deal of us boycott it will do any good. if ganz was even remotely worried about that they wouldn't do things like this or the other issues we have had with them.
In a word - no. Ganz already has the money from the pets because businesses purchase the pets to sell in stores (that's why there's a markup on shelves - it's the cost of purchase plus a little bit more to make a profit). Boycotting either the DVDs or the Webkinz plush actually harms the stores, and eventually you because they will think "Oh, the public isn't interested in the pets anymore, so we'll stop selling them."

i am happy for our northern neighbors and hope they enjoy their costumes. i know i will not be getting any costumes but that doesn't mean i have to dislike the people who can get them. it's just pixels and thats how i have to look at it because i am the adult in my household. i have to be logical and calm for the sake of the kids.
Same here - while I'm glad that people can enjoy these outfits, I would NEVER call our friends up to the north any negative names (the one I can think of will be censored and I do no think it's right to use it as an example). It's why I'm deeply disappointed that some of our friends up north are calling us "Yanks." For most of the states, that's inaccurate (especially for the 13 that were seen as Southern states in the Civil War ), and really ads insult to injury in something that is just a contest.

To those who are donating costumes, I say thank you for your generosity. One reason I personally entered Twitter was so I could do something similar if I had the chance. DO NOT be discouraged into not donating outfits because of a few upset people, because you're showing a lot more generosity than many in this world do nowadays.

Oh well I just thought I would try to help some people out since I have used all my emails addresses up.
But if you see an ad, make up something, like "crackers", for example, and add "@webkinzinsider.com" will be sent to WI if you want to donate dresses.

I sent a Tweet inquiring about if they're going to expand the contest outside of Canada, mentioning there are many disappointed it's just there. (How I got that into 140 characters on the dot I'll never know ). If I get a response, I'll let you know.

Yes Ninja, the ads will be up again all day tomorrow. Well, let's hope anyway. I heard somewhere that it was the first 50,000....I can't remember where I heard that now. With our new donation website, we may pass that number today CJ

There was just a twitter from Ganz stating that the contest is per their agreement with Fox. They said that they may make the costume available other ways (ala Bee). Maybe Fox has something in place with another company for a Chipettes promotion in the US and they couldn't allow Ganz to do it there but it was fine for Canada.
