Ok hear is my 2 cents, since webkinz was started for kids it makes no sense to me that this prize is being awarded through twitter, please correct me if I'm wrong, but don't u have to be 13 to even be able to sign up for twitter? I would say that is taking away from the originaL intent of webkinz. I am a 49 year old mom who was introduced to them by my 6 and 8 year old niece and nephew. I have seen them disappointed in ganz on several occaisions due to this type of decision in the past. I also am an avid collector/of webkinz, I have been a member slightly over a year and have 5 accounts one of which has over 100 webbies, and all my accounts are deluxe. This being said I feel that webinz in some ways gears itself to the adults. Maybe they need to have a Webkinz Sr. for adults so they aren't disappointing the kids with these adult type contests. This is not the first one I have felt was geared to adults (not that I want to start over or anything, just a thought....lol). One more thing, I also have been in retail management for over 30 years and what they did is definately false advertising THAT IS ILLEGAL. So will ganz do anything about these shoddy practises or will someone file a formal complaint? I guess we wait and see.

It wouldn't cost you anymore money Ganz AND it would turn a bunch of what are now very displeased customers into ecstatically thrilled customers. What do you guys think??

Sigh, it's such a nice pet, it would be in Ganz's best interest to sell it in the eStore. Although, they might end up selling it there. You know, say they won't so people want it more, then "change their minds" so it does end up in the eStore, and like twice as many people buy it. It could happen. I hope if they don't they have it as tons of prizes this year. Wouldn't it be awesome if it was a cummunal contest prize? That would be SO cool!!! The PSI is really nice, though I'm not sure the colors really look right with the pet. All in all, very nice, and if Ganz doesn't sell it they will be making a BIG mistake. But I think they will, just watch and see, they will "change their minds."

I really like your thoughts about this, I agree, at times they seem like this is a site for adults, yet it says ages 8 and under or something like that. It's the same with the eStore, how many little kids have a ton of money to spend? Although, i guess the eStore is angled towards little kids because they know if little kids see it they will right away want to buy it, without thinking about if they really want it or if it's worth the money. (which is why I don't buy eStore pets, I don't want to spend real money on something that's virtual.) Why was what Ganz did false advertising? I didn't see them advertisng anywhere. I'm not trying to go against what you're saying, I just didn't see any ads. I can't believe something they did is illegal. Could they be forced to shut down the site because of it??? I hope not!

Hey Lela2241! I believe this is what we are all are referring to by "false advertising":

Click the image to open in full size.

It clearly states "This pet.... can only be purchased at the Webkinz EStore" and now they have changed their tune and are saying it will never be an EStore pet, only a prize. Maybe they don't realize that some of their most devoted fans try to collect 1 of everything! By making this something that they may never be able to get, they are making that goal most likely impossible for their biggest fans, and thereby discouraging them from even trying in the 1st place. Seems a doofy idea to me but I don't get paid the big bucks to be their CEO either, so who am I to say. I do not have 1 of everything & am perfectly content that I never will, but not everyone feels that way. Putting off your biggest buyer = not a bright move Ganz!
