Zhu Zhu Pets *Review and Giveaway*

September 8, 2009 by  
Filed under Contests, Product Reviews


Hamsters are one of those pets that, I would never really want to have anywhere near my house.  They remind me a lot of a mouse and I don’t find them particularly cute either.   I can remember growing up and having friends that had hamsters and the horrendous smell that always came from them.  Even though those cedar chips are supposed to help, cedar doesn’t smell good either.zhu-zhu-wheel-225x180

Now there is a great solution to your kids wanting a hamster!  Thanks to Mom Select, we were sent the cutest, most adorable, non smelly pets for the boys.  Let me introduce you to Zhu Zhu Pets.  They are fun interactive little hamsters that are sure to delight your child.  They have all sorts of fun things for your hamsters and a whole habitat that you can get, so they can scamper around in it.


After we set up the entire habitat, the boys were very excited, when I pressed the little hidden button on their hamsters’ backs and let them go to do their thing.  I was amazed at how well these things moved around, and the noises they make are so funny.  At one point when their noses bumped each other, I swore I heard a kissing sound, so cute!  They can drive off from the garage in a car, surf on a surf board, walk in their wheel, take a walk in their ball or take a nap.  This is better than any toy that I had as a kid!

The set up process was a little time consuming and takes up a considerable amount of floor space.  It isn’t something you would want to continually take apart and reassemble.  The garage was a little on the flimsy side and the doors didn’t stay in place so I just taped the sides of the garage and that seemed to work.  With all that being said I think in general is is a great toy and my boys have played with it almost every day.  A small word of warning, don’t get the hamster anywhere near your hair because it will get caught in the wheel.

Zhu Zhu pets will be hitting the shelves this Fall and would make a perfect Christmas gift for a special someone who asks for that pet hamster.  At least you know it will make them happy and no messy cages to clean out.

** Thank you to Mom Select for providing the entire Zhu Zhu Pets set up for review**

    These things are so cute. As an odd pet owner, my pets are odd, not me (2 birds and a hedgehog) I always like quirky pet toys. I love all of the hamsters and would have problems picking between them. The ball and the habitat are awfully cool as well.

    Blogged about it.

  63. Alyssa says:

    We love Num Nums and Mr. Squiggles. I want all of the sets, as they just look like so much fun! If I could find them, I would start with the funhouse and attach the garage and the hamster wheel. I would then go ahead and try to find the rest and create one great hamster hangout! If my daughter had her choice she would pick the skateboard; she just keeps begging for a pet and that skateboard.

    Thank you so much for offering this up so that we may have a chance at getting one. We really appreciate it!!!!
