JuniperBerry,
I don't mean to sound like a GrumpyPants or like a selfish little brat ~

My reasonings for that post are as follows:

1. I do not think it is kind to show thousands of children (& adults) a list of available prizes that is LONGER than the list of potential chances to earn such prizes.

2. You only have an 80% chance of getting a prize with each egg - it is not a guarantee.

3. As we saw from the BRIEF availability through estore, most people got several repeats in a batch, thus even if you were on WW & WKN every day that week (and EASTER is more important than Webkinz!), you STILL wouldn't get one of each prize.

4. So they made the baskets available on estore - great marketing idea - BUT - say you are missing a few prizes that you really really want.... so you buy a basket of 6 eggs for $5 at the estore.... that is NO guarantee that you will get the prizes you are missing - even though you pay real money... for REAL money, I feel they should make the REAL item choices available to their estore customers.

~~~~~~
These are a few of the thoughts that I had which led to that post. I sincerely hope you get a wonderful selection of prizes & are overjoyed with them..
I will internalize your comments and learn from them as I should: be more content & thankful & less demanding. Thank you for the lesson. It is one I need to continue learning.
Happy Easter!

Blessings,
Bankskinz

I was one who slipped in and bought 2 baskets while they were in the store. I got less prizes per basket than others - 4 prizes for 6 eggs in one basket, 5 in the other - and got duplicates - rec'd 5 different prizes altogether. And I'm thrilled they're gifting us with free Easter prizes! I don't see any reason at all why they should guarantee us each one of every prize. I just don't get that...... this is a fun gifting. Yay, Ganz!

Thanks so much for bringing this information to us I am so excited I was going to buy a basket of them in the e-store after seeing the awesome prizes, but I think I'll try getting them for free first. Thanks to Ganz for a fantabulous Spring Celebration this year

I think this is wonderful....

Please, Ganz, let this be a "click here for your free chocolate egg" in the daily activities and not "your egg will be awarded right when you log in" like the daily kinzcare pop-up, which rarely works on a few of my family's accounts.

Default Re: Spring Celebration Chocolate Egg Event Starts on Monday! *UPDATE*

Bankskinz, I get where you're coming from (and I don't think you're a brat or any of that!), I just don't think there's anything inherently unkind about showing a list of possible prizes that may or may not be won. It seems like that's the case in pretty much any of the click-to-win fests, even with dailies like Alyssa's Star Challenge, Wishing Well, etc, there's no guarantee you'll get a prize on any given day (or at all). Just seems to be the nature of the game and at this point, with all the technical challenges that WW presents, I'll take all the free chances at stuff they want to offer me!

Dawnscott, no floating eggs. We're not sure how the WW egg will be presented, but just one per day, with the opportunity to "find" one also on WKW (not sure what that entails, haven't seen further explanation yet).

One of each per day. NO FLOATING. I didn't mean to sound ungrateful in my posts either but I was just looking forward to a floating type of holiday fest like we experience on other major holidays at Webkinz.

And God forbid they offend someone by calling it EASTER....
Before Cadbury & before Peeps - JESUS was and He is & He is to come!

I won't let all this marketing & shuffling around of stuff get in the way of Easter - it transcends STUFF..

Happy Easter everyone! May it cause you to think of new life, forgiveness & joy!

Way better than virtual chocolate eggs!

Hugs,
Banks
