Zhu Zhu Pets and Play sets are fun loving toy hamsters that each come with a unique set of personalities. They chatter, scatter, scoot and scurry. To go along with the fun little hamsters is a collection of 9 play sets that each connect to create an entire hamster playhouse including a skate park u-turn, adventure ball, exercise wheel, garage with hamster mobile and more. Zhu Zhu Pets are available as five different characters: Zhu Zhu Pets Patches, Zhu Zhu Pets Chunk, Zhu Zhu Pets PipSqueak, Zhu Zhu Pets Mr. Squiggles and Zhu Zhu Pets Num Nums. Zhu Zhu Pets drive around in little cars, zip up ramps and spin down slides, run in their hamster wheels, and get into all sorts of crazy situations.

The artificial intelligence of Zhu Zhu Pets even allows them to know what room of their hamster habitat they are in. They make toilet-flushing or teeth-brushing sounds when they enter the bathroom and sleeping noises and alarm-clock sounds when they go into their bedroom. In addition to the five hamsters, multiple Zhu Zhu Pets accessories are also available for purchase, allowing kids to collect and connect them all to create their own customized hamster habitats. Zhu Zhu Pets accessories include: Hamster funhouse, Hamster wheel and tunnel, Hamster-mobile and garage, Spiral slide and ramp, Adventure ball, Skateboard and U-turn, Pet bed and blanket and Pet carrier and blanket.

Zhu Zhu Pets are an obvious choice for kids. Children can pet and love them as well as hear them; they can’t squish them, lose them or forget to feed them though. This game is recommended for ages 4 and up.
Zhu Zhu Pets are the most ridiculously fun hamsters money can buy and the best part is that they won’t poop on the floor, pee on your hand, bite you, or die. Well, you need to change the batteries every once in a while (save the planet and get rechargeable ones!), but at least that’s pretty much the only maintenance they need. Read our Zhu Zhu Pets reviews for more details.

We selected Zhu Zhu Pets as a gift tip for our Top 100 Holiday Gift Tips way back in October. The stock situation was already pretty bad back then, but not as horrible as it is now. If you can get the Zhu Zhu pets and playsets at the low list prices than they are a recommendable toy. If you have to pay the premium prices auctions on eBay or 3rd party stores on Amazon are asking, than Zhu Zhu Pets are less recommendable.

Great Gift For
Zhu Zhu Pets are for ages 4 and up.

Price and Where to Buy
Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster are extremely hard to find at normal prices. Anything close to $10 for a hamster is considered normal. Walmart sells them for $8 if you catch them in stock. Consult our Zhu Zhu Pets Shopping Guide for tips on finding Zhu Zhu Pets.
