In the past I think residents of Canada and New York (U.S.) were excluded from contests because Ganz has headquarters in both places. I still don't understand why residents where Ganz has headquarters were excluded.

In this case though, Ganz excluded members of every country BUT Canada. That kind of contradicts their previous rules that residents where they have headquarters were disallowed from all contests.

I don't understand how they can now circumvent what they previously claimed were 'legal issues'. I just know I'm getting more and more aggravated with their arbitrary policies that alienate so many people who've kept them in business all these years.

I'm not pacified by the Ganz Tweet re: FOX and their agreement. They shouldn't have agreed to it b/c they know they have a huge customer base outside of Canada. You can't have those clothes floating around and say "sorry, rest of the world this is just for Canada"... I mean ALVIN and CHIPMUNKS!

I just get more irritated with each mistep they make.

Do they need new marketing and/or public relations help over there? The peeps they have seem to be asleep at the wheel.

Anyways--- Thank you so much to those generous Canadians who are willing to share with members from the rest of the world!!! There are many children who are so happy that you are donating!
I put up a Tweet regarding it a little while ago - but I bet there have been some that have been a bit more impolite regarding the contest.

And, sadly enough - FOX has more money and power than Ganz does, even in the fan base sadly. Even if Ganz had more kids involved than FOX, that company has adults buying its products so this will be second banana to it - they know that even if the kids boycott, most adults won't.

Luckily for me, my youngest daughter really doesn't care much about clothes for her pets. At least I don't have her crying over THAT. What really upset my youngest daughter was when Ganz announced the Sparkling Pegasus as an estore pet available for anyone who uses the estore.

Then they reneged and changed it to 'contest only'. *sigh* It just seems like Ganz is alienating more and more people and it almost seems deliberate as though they just don't care.

I mentioned when they reneged on selling the Sparkling Pegasus via the estore that I would only maintain my kid's accounts by purchasing a new pet ONLY when their accounts were set to expire.

That caused a couple of days of crying, but they're over it now. I explained to them that Ganz can no longer be trusted to honor what they initially say they are going to do.

It's easier to have my kids cry for one or two days, than hear them cry every single time Ganz pulls the stunts they've been pulling for the last couple of months.

I think the one thing we all seem to forget is that Ganz is a company full of humans that make mistakes. And, when you have a product that has soared like Webkinz has (few others have had this success) you will do and make things that some people are going to be happy about and not others.

What I've not been happy about is the Sparkling Pegasus - I originally signed up for Twitter to have a chance to get it, and had considered doing the YouTube bit and seeing if I could win so I could donate it for a contest of sorts. But, the more I think about it, the more I go "Do I want to have to constantly think of the four way test of the Rotary Club creed?" By this - 1. Is it the Truth?, 2. Is it fair to all concerned, 3. Will it bring good will and better friendships, and 4. Is it beneficial to all concerned? So, I realized it wouldn't, and decided against it. Sadly though - Ganz lately hasn't followed any of those quite universal notes and bring more and more disappointment than anything.

This was posted on Webkinz Twitter about 3 hours ago as to why it was for Canadians only:

Re: Chipettes contest. It is the terms of our agreement with Fox. We may make the costumes available in other ways (ala Bee costume)

That's very generous of the Canadians who've been excluded from previous contests, Justin. This really is an amazing site.
