With cute and cuddly names like Pipsqueek, Num Nums, Mr, Squiggles and Chunk, what kid wouldn't want these adorable little critters?
Zhu Zhu Pets are just like having real hamsters to care for, except they don't eat, poop, smell, make a mess or die. If the batteries die, just buy more!
Zhu Zhu Hamsters have two modes. A Loving Mode: Pet them, love them, hear them purr and chatter. And an Explore Mode: Let them scoot and scamper
across the floor.
