One of the best toys I have got for my kids this year are Zhu Zhu Pets. My kids just love them!
I also loved that they were on special at Big W and I got them at a really cheap price.
They are as close as we are going to get to real live hamsters, which I just don't have the time to look after at the moment. They have over 40 different sound effects, come in different colours and my girls love it when they say 'Holla'.
My boys also love to chase them around as they glide across the floor and watch as they change direction when they encounter a wall or other obstacle. I have found that it keeps my kids busy and even though this toy makes noise, it does not annoy me too much at all!
I am pretty selective on the toys I get my children and we have really enjoyed this little pet in our home. It is small enough to be put in a bag for an outing and even small enough to sleep under a pillow or next to them in bed.
Who knew something so small would bring so much fun!!
