Do you Zhu Zhu?

In all of the holiday hustle and bustle, I almost forgot to post about what my kids are begging for this Christmas.  I'm sure that some of you may be in the same predicament.  Last year, the hottest thing around were Zhu Zhu pets.  In fact, they were so hot that I was unable to snag any for my children.  I had almost forgotten about them until my daughter came home requesting them for her birthday.  Unfortunately it was too late as her birthday gifts were already purchased and wrapped.  So, I kept this request at bay for Christmas.  Now the younger siblings have also requested them!  Fortunately, they are still in hot demand and this year I had no troubles snagging them up.  I did seem to have a bit more trouble getting the accessories, such as the houses, hamster wheels, cars, etc.  But, we managed to find them all after a few trips to the store.

The hottest items this year in the Zhu Zhu world are Kung Zhu Ninja Warriors with battle armor accessories. (Pictured Below)

Kung Zhu hamsters start out as mild-mannered pets that dart around, scurry from place to place, and coo and squeak based on the unique environment they encounter. However, they transform into battle-ready warriors once they are properly “trained.” Simply swipe them across the Tablet or Zhu, and watch in amazement as an entirely new set of skills and sounds are unlocked. Just snap on armor and they’re ready to go to the battle arena (pictured below) to test themselves against worthy opponents! While the winners bask in the glow of victory, the defeated must re-acquire their skills through another round of training. Also new this year, the Kung Zhu Battle Arena! Accessories such as a battle arena, battle armor, vehicles and training areas, room, traps and more are available to bring the action to life and create a custom hamster habitat.

The innovative technology that makes Kung Zhu so diverse and unique is a coding system that tells the hamsters where they are in the tracks of training grounds and battle arena. The configuration of the tracks in the playset allows the intelligent warriors to properly navigate sections of the track to lead them to the battle arena for some ultimate Kung-Zhu fighting.

If you have a little boy on your Christmas shopping list, these toys are sure to be at the top of his! Kung Zhu™ is available at Toys“R”Us, Wal-Mart and other select retailers. All Kung Zhu™ hamsters and accessories are sold separately.
