Zhu Zhu Pets Complaint - Beware Zhu Zhu Play Sets

Review by child4eva on 2011-01-19
We purchased first the storage container...the top is ok, but a little hard for an ADULT to open, much less a 4 year old...the bottom that holds 4, has to be taken completely apart to open it and put them in or get them out!!! And it is VERY difficult to get it apart...we brought it back and got the Ballroom...they're supposed to sing and dance...well...the singing was about 2 seconds long if that, the dance?

Forget it...we sent THAT back...and in taking it apart to put it in the box, it was so difficult, I got a pair of scissors to pry it and tore my hand open to the tune of 8 stitches...the zhu zhus are cute...the add ons?? Most STINK

man..it's reviews like this that make me realize how out of touch with everyday life I really am... what the F is a zhu zhu pet?!

Anyway, I understand what you're saying about packageing - they get engineers to design efficient packaging and completely disregard the customer experience.

Inat, being out of touch isn't always a bad thing. A zhu zhu pet is a battery operated hamster, that moves and makes sounds.

Right jkt, no cage to clean, no "Why isn't your hamster moving, did you feed it this week?"

ok, so i think i've officially hit middle aged (is 34 middle aged?) b/c I have no understanding of why someone would want a automaton-ic hampster... my kid is only 4 mos old so I am guessing that soon enough,I'll be seeing this through kid's eyes again...

No, Inat, 34 is not middle aged, lol.

Inat, you little whippersnapper, somebody ought to take you over their knee...34 is not middle aged like singsing said. If that were the case, I'm ready for the home.

Your age is whatever you feel it is.

trmn8r, then I feel about 102, lol ^_^

My nice did get a few of these things, though. Her Mum is really allergic to anything with real fur and these are kind of a subsitute pet until they can get one of those hairless cats.

Zhu Zhu Pets were the biggest thing Christmas of 09. Everyone wanted them and they were sold out everyone. Now you can buy them everywhere. They are pretty cute.
