Zhu Zhu Pets – The Toy Craze of 2010


We have all seen electronic pets on TV, read about them in science fiction stories and seen the amazing (but expensive) products being developed in Japan. Now the rest of the world wants an electronic pet, and not one that exists on a handheld electronic device, but one that is physical and that you can interact with like Roboboy or the robotic animals depicted in the Hollywood movie AI. Every year we are getting closer to having life-like toys that act just like their real-life counterparts in the animal kingdom, minus of course the care and attention that is needed for the real-life animal not to mention having to clean-up after them.

Over the years we've seen many companies release electronic toys, some good and others pretty bad but unfortunately the cost of producing highly interactive, life-like animals is still prohibitive for most companies and what is available is out of reach for most families. But there is one toy this year that is sure to be a winner with a lot of youngger kids (ages 4 and up) and their parent. Best of all, they will not make a mess so you do not have to worry about cleaning up after them.

What is this pet? It is the Zhu Zhu Pet Hamster (also can be spelled as Zoo Zoo or Zhu Zhu). This toy is ranked # 5 on Amazons category "Electronic Pets" and is competing against dozens of other products. The consumer toy market is also highly competitive, so any toy that can rank so high is seen as a winner in most parents eyes.

The Zhu Zhu takes electronics to the next level, depending on the environment that they encounter will make over 40 different sound effects. This toy has also been featured on Good Morning America, how many other toys can make that type of a claim? And for those parents that know the largest cost is now batteries, rest assured that the manufacturer has even thought about that and provides 2 triple-A batteries to get the kids started with their Zhu Zhu.

Zhu Zhu is not just a pet, they also come with a whole range of accessories that any hamster would need (and even some that they would not). Take for example the Zhu Zhu Pets Adventure Ball – real-life hamsters love this toy so their robotic counterpart also enjoy their freedom while giving you peace of mind. Zhu Zhu should not be left in the toy box, or shelf but in their own Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster House Starter Set and you can extend that by purchasing the Zhu Zhu / Go Go Pets Hamster Funhouse.

There are more accessories available Zhu Zhu Airport and Plane or Zhu Zhu Carrier, and all are very well priced to keep even the most avid fan satisfied.
