Zhu Zhu Pets
Zhu Zhu Pets
To satisfy that hankering for a live hamster, Zhu Zhu Pets are about as close as it gets. The cuddly battery-operated hamsters have two modes: they coo and purr in nurturing mode and explore their habitat in adventure mode. But the best part is that these high-tech pets are extremely low maintenance.

Lucy Barr, 5, says: "That's cute. The hamster would be fun -- I would share that with [my brother] Brian."
Ava Kronman, 5, says: "I love these hamsters, they are more adorable than my friend's real ones and you don't have to feed them."

Suggested retail price: $7.99 each/Ages 4 and up
Maker: Cepia
