I'm not happy about this. I won't be able to play with my pets or anything! I HATE Going outside because i have an extreme bug phobia and the outside is just not for me

This is just my opinion but....

We PAY for this site, it is OUR choice if we want our kids to get off the computer, not Ganz'. The thing is they should be FIXING their site instead of telling us what we should and shouldn't let our kids do. I would be OK with it if they were making the site better during that time, but I have a feeling it is just to try to make themselves look better/save money/do work on Webkinz.

This is also not a well thought through event. What about the disabled/elderly or bedridden/in the hospital? Is Ganz going to tell them to go outside and play, for some of them Webkinz is the only way to pass time.

Sorry for my rant. Just my opinon


Sorry I meant to say

I have a feeling it is just to try to make themselves look better/save money, not to do work on Webkinz.

I'm so SICK of everyone thinking they need to be our parents instead of the parents stepping up and deciding what's right for themselves and their kids!

My child is active every day. She's a perfect weight, if not a little underweight for her height and age. She spends all MORNING on Saturdays working hard/being active and her time to play online is early afternoon!!!

I read below that Ganz is sponsoring something or other on Nickelodeon about getting out and playing.. Well know what?? One of the reasons my child gets up and is active is because I refuse to pay to watch tv - so we don't get all those channels that keep a kid tied to the couch and tv. We get CBS, ABC and sometimes FOX. We know nothing of things on Nickelodeon.
So while it's fine for Ganz to sponsor something like that, they should STRONGLY SUGGEST that the kids turn of the computer and go play - not shut down their play site to make the kids miss out on time that might be their only online time for the day! Is Ganz shutting down the estore site that gets them money directly into their coffers during the same time?? Seems to me they should!!

Perhaps there's enough time if you have unlimited time to sit in front of your computer. But for kids like mine, she gets two hours to be online in the EARLY afternoons on the weekends. So when her computer time is 12:30 - 2:30 and Ganz decides to play god and deny her service during that time, she loses out for the day.

Yes, I do complain and get cranky when Ganz does that during the middle of the day. While I realize they serve a global consumer base, they need to look at where the majority of their consumers are located and when the peak times of usage are and do maintenence shut-downs during the LOWEST usage hours - so the LEAST amount of consumers are affected by the outage.

Just adding my opinion --- yes we will all survive w/o Webkinz for 3 hrs but that is not the point. This is just one more example of how our rights are being infringed upon. We are told what light bulbs we must buy, we cannot get a regular fry in our kids happy meal, choc milk in the schools is evil and now we must all be told to get up and go outside for 3 hours.

Get off your high horse Ganz -- as a parent I get to make the decisions for my children and right or wrong they are my business. Let's hope a child isn't injured while outside or I am sure some personal injury lawyer will file suit! I think I will let my kids go to Clone Wars Adventures and play for 3 whole hours!!!

I hope it helps some kids decide to play outside for a while, and maybe some adults to go with them. It might actually be a good thing they're doing, I'm willing to wait and see; and I am curious to see how it turns out for everyone. Good luck filling the extra hours!

Honestly I think it's kind of weird that they would do this when school comes back in instead of in the Summer. Still, it's an interesting idea, and VEEEEERY unusual of Webkinz to do this.

Anyway, I've been visiting my pets online a lot lately. I'm gonna see if I can play more with them in the real world on that day--maybe even make a home video of them. And then, the next day, I'll celebrate my Webkinz Cocker Spaniel (Bountie)'s Birthday! True story.

Disregard the last post! This is actually a different WI member...I'm on the wrong acount! OOPS!

I will be honest..I dont like this idea. I mean yes I suppose some will exercise...but not everyone will...some will pry play video games, watch tv, do other internet activities, etc.

I mean does Ganz think a child is gonna go outside and start jogging around, do jumping jacks, push ups, etc all smiling and then say to their parents, "I want to have carrots for a snack and for lunch I want brussel sprouts and boiled spinach with low fat turkey."

Hmm I wonder if they wi ll have no webkinz hourlies going on then? Or will they still have them even if we cant get on?

Imagine if they had token balloon darts, wheel of wishes, free spree, etc real good stuff all at that time when noone can get on?

why can I see that happening?
