Zhu Zhu Pets: Finally A Mess Free Pet!

Mommy Niri’s Win Zhu Zhu Pet’s Contest closes on October 11th.

I have a huge love for dogs and so is my hubby, but since we live in New England which is known for its snowy winters, we never owned a dog for fear of the messy home. Fast forward a few years later our home is as messy as can be with our 2 little girls yet the thought of adding more work with a pet is a scary idea. Still we yearn for the fun and frolic of owning a pet. When the folks over at BSM Media asked me whether I wanted to host a Zhu Zhu Pets toy party, I thought “toys” and “parties” are two of my favorite words so “heck yeah”. I mean, wouldn’t you? What is a Zhu Zhu pet you wonder? Ah well to state it simply it is an electronic hamster. But actually that is too simply put, it is not just a hamster that scoots around. It has some smart intelligence built in that I am yet to totally decipher (hard for a software engineer to just accept things at will) but the movements seem pretty calculated.


I was lucky to get the entire habitat for the hamster including the car, wheel, ball and slide so I could see the hamster totally up to its antics. It was great that I also got a bunch of hamsters to give to the kids at the party. The children were super excited as were my 2 little girls. The cuddly sensation of the hamster along with the cute squeaks (not like a mouse) they made were a winning combination. The fact that they were not smelly was a doubly awesome factor.

The toys were listed as for 4 years and above and I would recommend sticking to that. Also as with all locomotive toys keep away from hair, as my little daughter will attest to (thank heavens my girls have an abundance of hair). You may want to stock up on the batteries too. The best feedback I got on the ZhuZhu pets? My friend’s son who does not love animals at all in the house fell in love with his ZhuZhu pet. This is a keeper.

UPDATE 05/22/2010:

    By :RE: RE: Duh, the stimulus wkored. You guys are a few tools short of a full shed. Look at it this way- let’s say I make $75,000 a year (year 1) as a janitor at city hall and I spend every penny of it. Then the budget crunch (recession) comes along and my hours get cut to 35 hour a week ($65,000/yr) from 40. It’s my own personal recession! But lucky for me stupid banker china-guy comes along and lends me $25,000 dollars! So in year 2 my spendable income as a practical matter is $90,000!!! And what do I do? I spend it! Like Obama, I give all my friends treats like dinner out (bail-outs), free golf, and we all stay in the cabin I rent at the lake for two weeks. Spending is up! GDP is up! Many jobs at the restaurants and golf course have been added or saved because of my good stimulus fortune and stupid banker’s lack of math skills. Yup, this stimulus is a success!Now what happens in year 3? China-guy won’t lend me another $25 large because I really only make $65,000 a year as a janitor in city hall. Since I won’t be going back to the golf course, cabin, or fancy restaurants those jobs that were added or saved are now gone again, perhaps for good. Because you see, now I have to make at least the interest payments on the $25,000 I borrowed, so my real spendable income has actually gone down. What???!! Yup, interest doesn’t get me anything in terms of lifestyle, but it does make chinese-guy happy- until I stop paying. . . But that’s another story. Is the light starting to go on for any of you stimulus nuts, or is this a lost cause?you really don’t know how stimulus works. the stimulus wkored. deal with it. the CBO study shows it. so does the moody’s study put out by former mccain economic advisor mark zandi. Now what happens in year 3? China-guy won’t lend me another $25 large because I really only make $65,000 a year as a janitor in city hall. beacause you spent the earlier money you don’t need to borrow another 25k because you jump-started the economy. but your analogy doesn’t really work because a person doesn’t get the benefit of higher revenues like a government does.stimulus=higher revenue=lower debt.
