Zhu Zhu Pet Hamster Fun - Adults Can Have Fun With Zhu Zhu Pets, Too!

by Pool Builders on 01-19-2010 in Articles

Ok, I have to come clean and tell you that with all the buzz about those little Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters, I got curious and I went looking through the stores to see if I could find any.

I mean, you see ads all over the place selling the hamsters and their play sets and that's all the kids have been talking about lately. Zhu Zhu pets with names like Chunk and Mr. Squiggles and Winky and they have these great toys that accessorize them. I saw one that was a pool area. Talk about fun looking.

So, my husband and I went walking around the local Wal-Mart last week and, by golly, they had a few of the toys in stock. My husband is as bad as I am, we pushed little noses to hear what the sounds were, touched the soft fur, and oohed and aahed over how cute they are and generally just looked over everything that came with them.

That's when we saw that there wasn't only one big funhouse that came with them, but THREE VERSIONS!

Can you say adorable?

There is a Disco room version that has a dance floor area complete with DJ desk, chairs and couches on the side and a disco ball right there in the room. With the way that these little critters scoot n' scurry around, it's a perfect place for them to play.

Then there is a Movie room version (pink top) with a big old comfy chair with cushions to sit on, side tables, and a big old TV area that most guys would envy in their own living room. Again, plenty of room to wiggle and bump around in.

Then, we finish with the Swimming Pool version (blue top). OMG. It comes with little floats and lounge chairs, a little diving board and a potted plant to the side. A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! I guess you could say we went "gaga" over that version as something about it just grabbed us like we were little kids.

Now I have to tell you, our "baby" is 20 years old! We weren't looking at these for anyone else but us! I know, can you believe it? Two grown adults and we spent over 30 minutes in the Wal-Mart toy aisle looking over what the Zhu Zhu pets had to offer.

I'll come clean; we walked out with two pets, Mr. Squiggles (a beautiful tan color) and Winky (black and white), the slide that attaches to the play set, and the swimming pool version of the funhouse. Oh, and I almost forgot, my husband HAD to get a little set of swimming clothes for HIS pet so he'd match the swimming pool.

We got home and, of course, had to put it together (you never know when kids might come over and want to look at it, right? Even though we don't have any grandkids? Hmmm) and then we had even more fun watching our cat pounce around the toys like he wanted to get in there but wasn't sure what was going on.

Both hamsters were moving around and making the cutest noises, bumping into the sides of the funhouse and whirling around making our cat pounce and then stalk to a different spot and watch those little intruders in HIS house.

Yes, these Zhu Zhu Pets are fun, but they aren't only for the "short kids", they are also fun for the "tall kids" and probably any "real pets" you may already have in your home.

Anyways, we now have "toys" available for when we have small children come to visit our house.

At least, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it!:)
