As many of you know, I do not want a real animal in my house. We have fish, and that's enough for me for pets. However, my kids love pets and Zhu Zhu Pets fit that bill. It's a win/win situation for both me and the kids. I can honestly say that I think the Zhu Zhu Pets hamster and accessories are going to be one of the hottest items this Christmas.
I love this hamster, because besides the batteries, I don't have to anything. They don't stink, they don't have to be fed, and they don't die (Not that I am too worried that Will would squeeze the life out of hamster but you never know). They run around just as much as real hamster and act like one too (when you pick them up and pet their nose, they squeak at you. They actually have around 40 different sounds they make.) There are 5 different hamsters to pick from, so you can get one that fits your kids the best. There are a ton of accessories that you can get like the funhouse, wheel and tunnel, mobile and garage, spiral slide and ramp, adventure ball, surfboard and sleep dome, skateboard and U-turn, pet bed and blanket, and pet carrier and blanket.
You should be able to find these at Walmart, Toys R Us, and Target though I've heard that they are somewhat hard to find. This is definitely the must get gift this year, so make sure you get your hands on one of these Zhu Zhu Pets!
