This is a great idea! Ganz should do this more often to encourage kids to play. Hey, it's on a Saturday, I play outside a lot on evenings and on Weekends. PLaying outside is real healthy for you and kids should play outside more!

What a good way to support the outdoors, but what about the disabled? Are they going to sit around watching a looped message? Maybe, because with the exception of the East Coast and the Midwest, everywhere else is sunny. I hope everyone without rain (unlike me ) has fun!

I agree with you, and also, I hope you'll have sun!

Good Point.

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.
Actually, they also spelled steer and artificial wrong too...
But even better point!

Very good points, everyone! But I think this might be proof Nickelodeon might buy Ganz, and then discontinue Webkinz for Neopets/Petpet Park, or vice versa, not an evil anti-disabled plot.
But my theory is probably false.

It's only a few hours. I don't think it's really a big deal.

Hey come on Ganz probably just put that sign up so they could update or fix problems on the site. But he just wanted to do it in a education way probably. So give him a break

Not happy about them bring down the site, we will have thunder storms here all weekend and kids will not be out side playing. Saturday is laundry day and webkinz, guess I will head over to Farmville to play. I agree with the parents. that it is there responsibility to allow computer time for their children. I do hope that they will fix the glitches if there doing this.

This is exactly what I was thinking! I'm good at parenting on my own thanks! I don't need them to shut down in order to teach going out and playing. I also thought they were going down for their own reasons, and using this as an excuse. Yes, it's only 3 hours, but since I have sunk a boat load of money in to my accounts I should be able to decide when I want to play.

but some kids don't have parents who monitor them and this is just helping get the word out to go outside and play

That's a good idea... but I think it should be for the entire day instead of just... what is it... 3 hours? There's lots of "fattening" things for kids to do besides Webkinz-other computer games, TV, video games, listening to music... well, I'll and ride my bike for that time anyway. I could stand to lose a few pounds anyway. Okay, more than a few.
