Default Re: Webkinz Announces World Wide Day of Play

My question: Why a weekend? For the kids they are targeting with this, there is a good chance that webkinz is just as popular on weekday afternoons. What about the kids who are punished becuase they have good parents who already have control of their child's online time and only allow screen time during this period on Saturday? Or teens and adults that work and do homework all week and only get on the computer during this time because they already know that their other priorities come first? It just really disappoints me that I plan a day that I can catch up on everything I need to do on webkinz and then am denied that time. I am in school 6 days a week, four of those until 8 PM, with homework after. Letting teens on 3 hours per week isn't much to ask, is it?

I have used the comment section on WW from all my accounts to inform ganz of how I feel about their decision. It probably won't stop what is happenning tomorrow but may help them to consider our anger over their idea in the futrue. Please join me and let them know how you feel.

To answer a previous question, it's on a Saturday because it's a national event that is taking place in Washington DC. It's taking place near the White House with activities and concerts going on all day. This event is also being supported by the president and has gotten the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award. Webkinz joined as a sponsor of the event.

Thank you for the inofrmation. However, Webkinz is free to promote the event but not to restrict access to a site we pay for to make themselves look good. Its going to rain here all day Saturday and I assure you no one is going to be outside playing.

What about kids or adults who have a skin disease where they cannot go out into the sun but only in the night time cause their skin is super sensative?

Does Ganz ever think about things?
i don't think they are saying go outside and play and thats all you can do, i think its just promoting to get off the computer and do something else like read or play board games or If you can go play outsdie and enjoy life.

Made me laugh

I would love to have everyone boycott the estore for a while in support of the country's economy.

And what will stop ganz from deciding wheever they feel like it that they are closing down the site to promote any cause they choose? Its nice to know that I paid for deluxe membership so ganz can decide I should go out and play.

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?
thats why they are probably doing this so that no events are schelduled at those times

They could really really get sued for shutting the site down. To legally shut it down. They would have to cease selling webkinz. Wait one year then shut it down. But that's only the law.
Hm, interesting point. I will talk to my lawyer co-workers about this.

I think a couple things that bother me, are that we know that Ganz has never been concerned in the past at how long they've asked us to sit at the computer in order to win a few items. They have been infamous for asking kids to sit long hours to win things that they could have programmed to be given quickly, instead of waiting so many hours... sitting.

Also, I just keep remembering in the past how they took so much pride in their whole 'Webkinz Cares' pets, that were aimed at allowing kids in the hospital to play online and receive gifts on their accounts. So, they know that their site is used by people that are in the hospital, people who are disabled, or for whatever reason are not able to go outside and play.

We schedule our own lives in ways we see fit for us. I for one, really don't like them assuming that unless they give me the idea to get outside, that I won't be outside. I can make my own decisions, and certainly don't need them to act like a parent to me. As it turns out, I probably won't even be home at that time, so it's not a problem to me personally,... but I just don't like that they presume to be in charge of my decisions.

I think their decision to go with this program has little to do with their great concern about kids sitting at the computer, and more about promoting their image of their company.
(but maybe, just maybe... they will take that time to fix some glitches???)
