I’m loving the new Zhu Zhu Pets that are out right now… it gives the bebe the joy of having a pet without giving me the joy of having to clean up after it. These Zhu Zhu pet hamsters are pretty darn close to the real deal. They move like hamsters (even on carpet!). Though they are meant for kids 4 years and older, my 20 month old boy is in love with it. He watches it go through it’s little slide, tunnels and even watches it drive a car! It’s hilarious to watch.
To “play” with them… all you have to do is click a few buttons:
AND they come with all these little playsets that the hamsters can play with – including a hamster ball! BTW – all the playsets totally work. The hamster drives a car and surfs! These hamsters and their play sets are definitely a must-buy.
Oh, and they are definitely not just for kids… we had kids over at the house and they were playing with the Zhu Zhu Pet and everyone wanted one. My sister-in-law even got one for her little Chihuahua.
