Remember when we hosted a Zhu Zhu Pets Giveaway in which one lucky Rave and Review reader won a Zhu Zhu Pet of their very own? (hint, it ended yesterday)... Well, we have gotten our little hands on yet another Zhu Zhu Pet and wanted to share the love with our loyal readers.
Living under a rock? Zhu Zhu Pets are the newest craze for kids aged 4 and up and are quickly becoming one of the hottest holiday toy offerings this year. Normally I have a hard time understanding what makes the hottest toys fly off the shelves, but in this case I completely understand the kid (and adult) appeal. Zhu Zhu Pets are adorable little battery operated hamsters that zip up ramps and curves, cruise down slides and react to their environment in multiple ways that make playtime fun and exciting for little ones.
As much fun as it was to watch the Zhu Zhu Hamsters roam through the winding and curving hamster track, play is even more fun when you let the hamsters loose in their own little cars or hamster ball and they can cruise around your house. If you have a smooth surface for them to play, Zhu Zhu Pets can even scurry along outside of their hamster track without a vehicle and add even more fun to their hamster world.
Their artificial intelligence is all fully contained in their adorable little bellies and is virtually invisible to the kids playing with them, which makes them seem incredibly life-like and all the more fun to play with. But, their built in technology is pretty cool, allowing the Zhu Zhu Pets to interact with their environments and react to their surroundings such as sleeping when they reach their beds or making excited coos as they twist down the slide. Yes, that's right, it's like a real hamster only better!
So, I’ve got a riddle for you: what’s better than a pet that requires no cleaning of cages, no fancy pet food, no pet sitters and never dies (at least not that a few batteries can't fix)? A pet that has an on/off switch, of course!
Price: $6.99 and up, each sold separately
Overall: One of my top picks for holiday gift giving
