Early in the Fall, AOL posted the ten hottest toys for the season and I immedistely went on line and ordered 2 with a couple of the add ons. I later found out that the only thing my granddaughter wanted for Christmas was a Zhu Zhu. I am the greatest grandparent ever!

These toys are going to be played with for about 20 minutes and then tossed under the bed and forgotten, which is why we aren't getting any. My kids haven't even asked for one. I think this is a case where adults are getting hyped up over these things because the media is telling us it's a must have. This reminds me of the furor the media stirred up over the H1n1 vaccine, making that extremely hard to get, too.

Aren't they only like 8 bucks? It would be worth it then.

Your right! I was around for the 80's Cabbage patch hysteria...A WASTE of money and time. People do be fools and fall into this media blitz

hey its a better alternative for people who can't take care of the real pets that the little brats beg for..they should come out with zhu zhu bunnies at easter, it might save countless bunnies from torture and ultimate abandonment once the kiddies forget all about them..im trying to find these things for the kids that i know. and please, gillian williams, dont get your kid a real hamster for christmas just because they want it, unless you research how to fully care for it. the shelters are already inundated with small animal surrenders.

I was lucky to get my hands on 2 pets, fun house and attachments all this past week. I'm sure it will get old quick but my son will be happy Christmas morning and that's what it's all about. Besides, our real hamster died about a month ago and I'd rather deal with these than get another one. No mess, no smell :) Happy hunting everyone!

Usually you see a name like Zhu Zhu involved in a drive-by shooting.
