According to WKN the click the ad is only for Canadians! But...once I win the shirt from the ad it won't let me click the candy cane for a prize and vice-versa.

The prize for the ad is a shirt, the candy cane is random.

Interesting. Is this the first time they have ever had a contest open to Canada only? Usually they are the ones left out of these things. How nice for them.

I was able to get the Hawaiian shirt by clicking on the floating candy cane... which wasn't supposed to be floating today.

So confusing. All these freebies are great... but so confusing along with all the challenges. I need a day planner just to keep things straight. lol.

So if you are in canada you are suppose to do the ad and if you are in the US you are suppose to do the candy cane? But you don't know what prize you will get from the candy cane and you'll get the shirt only from the ad.

I agree it's kind of confusing LOL

I guess I'll take my chances with the candy cane since I'm US and hope I get a shirt.

Anyone know what the peek a newz prize is yet?

I got those from the peek-a-news. I got five hawaiian shirts from the candy canes!

The same thing happened to me. Also, I clicked on the ad and won a shirt, but then clicked on the floating candy cane later and won....nothing. It said I had already participated in that event. Very, very weird.

So it seems Webkinz is getting around their own rules by having the ad "just for Canada" but then giving away prizes via a floating candy cane for the rest of the world? Wow, that seems ridiculously unfair because when they give away prizes just to the States they don't have the same floaty clicky thing for the rest of the world.

So today, because I live in Canada, I got the Hawai'ian shirt, but have no chance to win the floating prizes. And the box that took me 20 minutes to get (the peek-a-news is never a cakewalk) gave me nothing.

So far, I'm not impressed with this Alvin promotion. Isn't that the OPPOSITE of what the people advertising would like to hear? :|

The floating candy cane gave the United States the Hawaiian Shirts. The peek-a-newz gives you the gift box. When you put it in your room it says you've got a prize and to check your dock. I had to search a little bit, but I did find my prizes. Either a guitar or a green or blue full-length hoodie is what i got. So search your dock for the gift box prize.
