Zhu Zhu Pets are exactly like owning a real live hamster. They are smart, plush little life like critters that communicate with one another while they play in their own play sets. The play sets are remarkably similar to the play sets of real hamsters. Zhu Zhu Pets possess two play modes: a cuddly pet style where the hamsters vibrate and make a pleasant hamster sound which is what every child wants in a pet. They also have an adventure style where the hamsters move about their environment. They move around with smart audio which automatically responds to the different habitat. You can purchase several pieces that can be added on to the Zhu Zhu hamster habitat world to make the play area even bigger. Again this feature is in keeping with what you would expect to do with a real hamster. Zhu Zhu Pets use two AAA batteries and are safe for ages 3 and up.
Zhu Zhu, Hamster toys look like the real thing. There is no smell or mess. If they die they can be revived with a replacement of just two small batteries. Zhu Zhu Toys do not bite and kids love them. A Zhu Zhu pet will not fully take the place of a real live pet, but it is a great alternative. It can offer a learning experience to your children. This is a good substitute for a pet especially for younger children who might not handle a live hamster with the care it needs. The cleaning of a hamster cage can be one of the worst jobs ever handed up to a parent when a child is too young to do this. Zhu Zhu’s are clean little fellows and there is nothing you need gloves to clean up here.
Zhu Zhu Pets is the toy that will be a sell out for the Christmas Season. Every year there is that one toy that parents will stand in line for hours to get because they are sold out as
soon as they come in. This will be that toy. It is great for both the kids and the parents. The kids get the pet they always wanted, a hamster in the toy form of Zhu Zhu. The parents have no worries on keeping this toy alive, feed, or clean. When you go out to get the hamster food it will come in the form of just two AAA batteries which are inexpensive, much more so then the real hamster food. Zhu Zhu is interactive and realistically so, to the point that your children are getting an education on how the real hamsters live. Zhu Zhu is the pet of the future and it is here today.
Zhu Zhu Pets were test marketed in Phoenix Arizona where they flew off the shelves. They will be available nationwide at the end of August. They will be a toy that will sell out quickly. Wal-Mart is one of the stores that will be carrying the new Zhu Zhu Pet hamster.
