Zhu Zhu Pets review and giveaway. (closed)

Looking for the perfect pet for your kids? One that's all fun and doesn't leave behind a mess for you to clean up? This pet doesn't even need to be fed. Well let me introduce you to Zhu Zhu pets. They're adorable toy hamsters that my kids instantly fell in love with, well my three oldest ones. My 1 year old was a little bit afraid of the rolling wheels that keep it moving and it took a little bit of warming up for him. There are also many accesories that you can buy to create a whole little world for your Zhu Zhu pet and I like the fact that they're made to connect to each other.

I have to tell you the funniest story. My children were at my sister's when my husband and I decided to open our new Zhu Zhu pet. We let it run around and watched as it kept up the cute little noises that it does. It would run into the wall and then back up and turn and run another way. Well, we took our eyes off of it as it kept going, and it came up missing, just like a real critter does. It eventually shuts itself off to preserve the battery life, so not making the little noises made it really hard to find. I looked all over, so I thought, and ended up giving up for the night. The next day I decided to look underneath the couch again and this time I pulled it away from the wall and somehow it had gotten behind an extension cord that was under the couch. Guess I should have kept it in it's little hamster ball LOL. That way it would not have come up missing so easily.

As you can imagine, when my older children returned home they were excited to meet our new pet. I had to stop them from arguing over who was going to get to hold it. My 3 year old even took it to bed with him, but ended up dropping it behind the bed sometime during the night.
