Me and my best friend, ‘snow’ used to send each other uncommon things. she once sent me the Swim Top on thanksgiving. we stopped a little while ago tho cuzz we were running out of stuff xD

    and is there some way to block certain ads? occasionally, i see some ones innaproptiate to people my age (somewhere between 10 and 15).

  10. Bali_Tiger says:

    How do you guys get hired at ganz? are you just walking around the street and some random dude screams ” HEY! WANNA JOIN THE GANZ SQUAD?” lol but seriously, how does that work?

    • Matt WebkinzFriends says:

      That’s a close guess! Ganz, like any company, will post ads on job websites that you can send your resume and portfolios to. Then, from there, you go through the typical job interview process!
