Yes, i tottaly agree as i said in my other post i usually have to pay for mine, mmmmm maybe im going to get a webbie for christmas, i would be so happy because my mom usually just takes me to the store and i have to buy them, but my lil sister did have a little smirk and she told me she was that she was going to get me something this year, then i know how it is $$$$$$$$ is tight in my house so i havent asked my mom for any webbies lately, because i respect her

Ok I have read every post on this thread and feel that the majority of you must be children. So I thought I would add something from a mothers point of view. First of all if you sit back and think Christmas is only two months away, think in terms of how your parents get paid whether it be once a month, twice a month or 4 times a month. So think of how much extra money they will have from now to Christmas out of those paychecks after bills and putting food on the table. Now conclude would you want gifts under the tree from your parents or a webkinz right now and nothing from your parents at Christmas? Webkinz aren't all that expensive but at the same time they aren't cheap they add up. You could continue to work for weekly allowance and depending on how much you make set it aside for one to have before Christmas or stick to charms or trading cards that are more in the budget this of year.
Second there are kids that cannot have webkinz not because of being poor or parents not allowing it. Where we live there are still locations that do not have high speed internet because there isn't any place to put the towers, so some children are cursed with that problem because unfortunately Webkinz does not run on dial up, or theres the problem were your computer doesn't meet the requirements so therefor why have a webkinz when Ganz still sells cute beanie babies that cost less. So my point here is just because somebody doesn't have a Webkinz don't assume they are poor.
Lastly word from the wise Never Nag it gets you no were other then upseting a parent, Never Snoop if you get caught the result could be really upsetting, Never Ever go to the other parent after one says no you could cause a major fight between your parents.
