Oh ok, so as an adult that uses Webkinz, I guess I'll go take my super soaker and play with the neighbor kids? Yeah I'm thinking probably not. :/

Thank God I am gone all day Saturdays.

I would like to say on record that I am not impressed with this move by Ganz. I am a parent and I am in full control of how long my kids spend on the computer and when those times are. I don't need Ganz' "help" in this matter. I am pretty sure they are shutting down for three hours either for some kind of maintenance or even just to save a boatload of money by having all their servers off for that length of time. This is of course fine and their prerogative, but for goodness sake say so and spare us the preaching.

Webkinz World is a pay-to-play amusement site. They are not an "educational" site; they exist for fun and play, period. For a group of people who can't spell "lightning" correctly, who don't know that "dice" is plural, who think it's ok to teach children that you don't have to answer every letter you receive, for these people to now preach to us about the value of not being on the computer on a Saturday afternoon is more than a little insulting. I say to Ganz: fix your own house before you worry about the "needs" of MY house. Leave your site up and let ME decide - as a responsible parent - when my children should walk away from the computer. And what about the kids who can't "go out and play"? What are they supposed to do?

There are many, many other ways Ganz can make their site into a better learning tool if they really wanted to (which they so obviously do not wish to do), but they are still first and foremost a gaming site that we pay to use. That's all they are. "Shutting down so the kids can go outside"? Nonsense and really not their call to make.

OK, stepping off of my soapbox now. Sorry for the rant but they just make me so angry sometimes.

Hmm, only 3 hours? I guess this will at least get the kiddos outside for a little while.

I completely agree! All parents should be the judge of how long their kids play on the computer.

Just a thought...

But we PAY for this! We bought the pets, we buy the codes, we pay for deluxe and they tell US they are shutting down the site for 3 hours for the kids to go to play?! I don't think they should have that right honestly, since WE PAY for all of this.

I had plans to be outside during that time anyway. Dad and I were going to go apple picking if the apples I like are ripe.

It's not like WW is the only reason kids aren't going out to play.

The kids that really don't spend enough time outside will most likely not be going outside during those 3 hours either.
