We mentioned the Zhu Zhu Hamster toys yesterday in our coverage of the ToysRUs Hot Toys for Christmas List. It looks already very certain that the Zhu Zhu Hamster is the Furby or Elmo of the Holiday Shopping season 2009. It is still early in the game as we still have September, but the game is on: Find a Zhu Zhu Hamster at the normal price of $10 or even at $8 like Walmart is selling them if they are in stock.
Currently you pay around $20 for a Zhu Zhu Hamster on Amazon or on eBay. On eBay you can bid also on the complete 14 piece sets that are even harder to find.
Yes, exactly you are actually not done finding a Zhu Zhu pet, you also should get some of the many accessories that include stuff like the Funhouse, surfboard, Garage, bed or Adventure ball.
Have fun in the coming weeks finding a deal or at least stock of the Zhu Zhu Pets. The officals stores that carry Zhu Zhu pets include Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, Amazon.com, Meijers, Hallmark Gift Stores, Palmida, Shopko, Duck Wall and Fred Meyer.
