If you are looking for a top Xmas present for 2011 and something that can fill up those stocking then you cannot do much better than checking out the Zhu Zhu pets. These strange electronic pets have become a real craze and they are set to be one of the best selling toys of Christmas 2011!
One of the most popular Zhu Zhu pet hamsters this year will be “Num Nums” the hamster.
So What Do The Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters Do?
Well they are battery powered and behave like a real hamster! In fact they have over 40 different sound effects depending on where you put them and the environment that they encounter. They take 2 AAA batteries so make sure that you pick some battery’s up to go with the toy as they do use batteries up quite quickly.
You also get a “cuddle mode” and this means that the Zhu Zhu Hamster will lie still and make cute noises very few minutes asking for a cuddle! Then you have the “Try me” mode and if you switch this on the Zhu Zhu hamster will make a noise when you push his nose even when he is switched off.
The best mode for the Zhu Zhu hamster’s though is the “Play mode” and as the name suggests this mode is fun!
You will be able to switch on the play mode and the hamster will shoot off for an adventure! Be warned though the wheels that the hamster runs on are quite strong and if you put the hamster on someone’s back it will be able to run up them!
In play mode it will run off and you will hear it make all sorts of noises there are over 40 sound effects but it will make a different noise depending on where the hamster is and what he is doing!
The only downside is that the Zhu Zhu hamsters ARE well built but because they scurry off so fast sometimes you just need to be mindful that they don’t fall down the stairs because they are breakable!
Also another thing to keep an eye on is very young children as they do have working motorized parts.
We recommend that you give to children ages 3+!
The Zhu Zhu hamster pets are the perfect Xmas present and the best thing is that you can buy one of these for pretty much anybody it does not have to be for kids. If you want to go the extra mile you can buy a couple of them and have fun as they race around chasing each other.
Just make sure you keep an eye on where they are going, there are no falls down the stairs and also that you are armed with enough AAA batteries as the downside is these little hamsters use up a lot of power!
Well worth checking out this Xmas 2011!
