Webkinz. An adorable website where a kid’s plush toy comes to life. Where a kid can play with there own virtual pony, or fish, or whatever. With Webkinz, a kid can make friends, play games, compete against other pets, and last but not least, feed there pets. Of course kids love Webkinz. After all, you can’t feed a cat a cupcake in real life. And what stems from all of this? A lifelong experience they will probably never forget. So, why would people complain about something so sweet and innocent as that?
I see a lot of complaints on this website of parents and grandparents saying that Webkinz is a “bad influence” on kids, and “All that it is is a shop. It lures the kids in. Buy this, buy that.” Well, I want you to know that this is NOT true. If the people didn’t have such a one track mind about Webkinz, they could see for themselves that Webkinz isn’t all just about buying. It’s about games, friends, challenges, adventures, books, taking your pet to the park, prizes, announcements and much much more.
The next complaint I see a lot is that Webkinz is “dumbing kids down.” they say that kids do not learn anything from Webkinz, that Webkinz was made to make kids stupid, and that Ganz should close down webkinz eternally. In other words: “Oh look, Webkinz. My kids are having the best time of there life on there. Well, since they aren’t learning anything from it, why don’t I block my kids from ever going on it again, and complain on the internet about it?” God, stop being so overprotective, you idiot parents! Not only do you think this way, but you don’t even give Quizzy’s Question Corner any credit! 3 words: get a life.
My next complaints are the ones I agree on: the first is Secret Code problems. Many people complain about entering a secret code and guess what? It doesn’t work! Well, this problem can easily be fixed. If you are having secret code issues, you could:
(A: Try it again, or
(B: go to customer Support. Here is the link for the such topic: http://customerservice.webkinz.com/cs/us_en/adi.php Find which problem you are experiencing, enter some info so they can investigate, and wait for a reply.
The other complaint is Kinzchat plus problems. People say that there kids are doing innapropriate things on kinzchat plus and such. Well, it isn’t Ganz’ fault, it’s yours. It clearly says that kids need parental access before going on kinzchat plus. The advice is simple: block your kids. If you don’t know how, here is the link:
As for the first two, for those who are seriously complaining, you are either:
(A: Having a one track mind
(B: Being an overprotective parent
(C:Getting angry about something you shouldn’t be angry about, or (D: just bored and looking for something to complain about.
