Almost two years ago we held our first Zhu Zhu party. We had Zhu Zhu’s to give to everyone that came to the party that day and even had some left over. Of course, that was even before they were a top selling Christmas gift that was hard to find. I remember seeing them on sale on the internet for outrageous prices because they were so darn popular. What’s not to love, from a parenting perspective it’s a pet your child can have that the only maintenance needed is a new battery or a detangling. My daughter got her hair stuck in the wheels the first year. Now though, she’s old enough to know better and for one of their expansion sets. The Zhu Zhu Newborn Nursery!
The Newborn Nursery is among slew of Zhu Zhu spin offs. You can find Zhu Zhu Puppies/Pets, Zhu Zhu Princess, and Kung Zhu which is really cool for boys. I saw them at BlogHer and they are very manly for hamsters. The Zhu Zhu babies are an easy sell for little girls. First it’s a pet, all little kids want a pet they can play with. Well this pet is ok if they forget to feed it, or talk to it or love it. It’s also ok if you lose some of the many little pieces. They’re just FUN. Each Zhu Zhu Baby comes with a little crib, a baby blanket a bottle and a little toy, so you can play with it, pretend to feed it and soothe it. The size of the Zhu Zhu baby is about 1/4 of the size of a regular Zhu Zhu pet but 100 % of the same fun, just geared towards what little girls like to do. Dress up, imaginative play, and sharing and trading with friends.
The interesting thing is that they do kinda roll around. Check out the bottom of the Zhu Zhu baby. There is a metal ball in the bottom that makes them kinda rolly.
