Among the Top 10 items being sought and sold out for 2009 at Walmart Stores are the Zhu Zhu Pets'. Zhu Zhu Hamster, a robotic hamster that's available as five different characters: Patches, Chunk,PipSqueak, Num Nums and Mr. Squiggles.
The little creatures are scurrying from store shelves as fast as retailers can stock them. The neat thing about Zhu Zhu Hamsters is they don't eat, they don't mess their cages and they don't die (and their batteries can be replaced)!
In addition to the five hamsters, there are multiple Zhu Zhu Pets accessories available for purchase, allowing kids to collect and connect them all to create their own customized hamster habitats, according to their Web site.
These accessories include the hamster funhouse, hamster wheel and tunnel, hamster-mobile and garage, spiral slide and ramp, adventure ball, surfboard and sleep dome, skateboard and U-turn, pet bed and blanket and pet carrier and blanket. (Buy here.)
