I couldn't agree more. We all are equal human beings and if Ganz can't treat all it's customers the same they shouldn't have contests at all! I am thankful for this situation in one sense. It has opened my eyes to how some people really are and the silly things that people still think and do in this day and age. Discrimination and prejudice just makes me sick.

Like you I am not sure how to explain it either or than to simply say "well it's what the webkinz people decided and no, we are not moving to Canada this weekend".

I already know my older daughter will more than likely write GANZ a letter stating her frustration about it being unfair just because she lives in a different country. AND she will take it to the mailbox herself, just like the last time.

Good luck Moms!

Am I disappointed? Yes, of course.

But not because my country was excluded. Whether because of local laws or target markets in advertising contracts, sometimes that can happen anywhere. It's never fun or pleasant, but it is a RW reality.

I'm disappointed because Ganz handled this poorly. They should have announced the target market for this early and clearly. When you market to kids, the ethical thing to do is NOT set them up for a unnecessary disappointment.

As for this being a taste of our own medicine....It sounds to me like your holding on to some grudge you have yourself. I hope your wounds heal from whatever situation you had to deal with and you can stop insulting the rest of us.
I'm sorry - maybe it's just outside influence on my life. Like I said, I really don't mean to offend anyone, and I know it sounds like I'm holding a grudge (wish tone of voice could be sent via the internet) but to me it's just sort of amusing. Yes, there have been some - personal issues, and I'm sorry if it sounded like I was bringing those out on all of you. That wasn't at all my intention.

Maybe I just like discussions about politics too much...Maybe I'm just liking that there are actually people online for me to talk to (and enrage) at 6 o'clock in the evening.

Maybe I, like everyone else, am hoping for a bad April Fools joke. Though the fact that Ganz very cleverly planned this for Good Friday (meaning no calls of protest as customer service will be closed) is a clue that it may not be a joke.

I'm sorry, I hadn't thought of the legal actions. Though with VIRTUAL items, I can't imagine what sort of legal actions there could be.

Maybe that post was entirely uncalled for. I'm already regretting it...

- Jane

I agree. Completely.

I wish there was a way they would make it up to ALL of us.

I agree. The original advertisements didn't say this. They said to go to the Webkinz Newz for the rules, but then the rules were never posted on the Webkinz Newz. As far as I can tell, the only way to read them is to see one of the advertisements first and click on it.

Wow! Thanks for letting us know! Now it will be even more important to really work at the contests we do get to play!

It may be the only way we can share in good fortune! Just start doing what we did with the Griffin rugs, get as many as possible so can have a give away contest with lots of cool "country specific contests"!

As a group we all know we can do this. Man I wish we were in Canada for the Holiday Weekend!

Again thank you for the update about other countries not being able to compete!
