Zsu Zsu Pets

If you’ve read this article just now, then chances are you are one of those scampering around to get your hands on those hard to find Zsu Zsu Pets. Or maybe you were living in a cave somewhere in Afghanistan for more than a month now and just come out to know about the hottest craze among the ever-demanding 5-10 year old American consumer.

What are Zsu Zsu Pets?

Zsu Zsu pets are actually four little toy hamsters with wheels and sensors which enables them to run around, bump and make a turn, sniff, make cute squirmy noises over and over again on the floor or in their hamster habitat. These four cute furry friends are touted to have four unique personalities.

CHUNK. This laid back surfing hamster is famous for chilling out, hanging back and laying low but he’s off and running with a sniff of slamming surf.

  1. SQUIGGLES. He is the one who is always on the go to explore around. He’s been around and has lived to tell his experience. Love him, pet him and watch him go.

NUM NUMS. She is the tracker and if there’s something which attracts this cute and fussy little friend’s highly trained sniffer, she can easily tract down those munchies.

PIPSQUEAK. She is the daredevil of the group. Just give her the wiggle room and she’ll do her stuff. She may be small and petite and she’s quite a powerhouse.

If you are lucky enough to be able to get your hands on these four little pets, the kids would enjoy it more with the Hamster Funhouse, their Adventure Ball and the Hamster House Starter Set. And what would make these fun loving hamsters happier than to have their own Hamster Wheel, Carrier and Blanket, Garage and Hamster Car.

The Big Question

Where can I find them? Cepia LLC, which manufactures and distributes the Zsu Zsu line of toy hamsters, has announced that the Zsu Zsu pets are available at Toys “R” Us, Walmart, Meijer, Shopko, Duckwall, Blains and online at toysrus.com. Zsu Zsu pets are also available at Amazon.com.

But the bigger question is, “Are the Zsu Zsu pets available till now?” Of course this depends on when now is. While it is prudent not to go for overpriced finds, try explaining to your kid that you can’t find anywhere his much anticipated Christmas present. If you can’t find it in official outlets, you can always try Ebay. Here’s a tip: while these toys maybe popularly spelled Zsu Zsu pets, you can also search under Zhuzhu, Zu Zu, Zoo Zoo or even Go Go. Happy hunting!
