One way to teach kids responsibility and learn to take care of others is to get them a pet hamster.
Pets need a lot of nurturing and care and take a lot of work each day to maintain them.
This is now different. They don’t that much attention.
There is a new type of pet to hit the streets. They are called Zhu Zhu Pets.
Unlike real pet hamsters the mechanical Zhu Zhu Pets can be operated by the kids to perform certain actions thereby making them more entertaining and interactive and best of all they are pet hamsters without the mess.
These loveable toy pet hamsters come in two different sizes the smaller 4.5 x 2.2 x 2.5 inches and the larger one almost double the size. These cuddly creatures are ideal to suit kids of different ages.
And yes they do run out of energy. And instead of feeding them you simply recharge the batteries.
The second reason for my fondness of the toy pet hamster is that my little girl is asthmatic so I’m more sceptical about her cuddling up to a furry pet. Zhu Zhu Pets are hypoallergenic which gives me peace of mind knowing she will have the joys of a pet hamster without worrying about her getting sick.
There is one snag with Zhu Zhu Pets. Like real pets you have to play and interact with them directly if you expect them to behave like real pets. There is no one flip the switch in order for them to play continuously through the day.
Zhu Zhu pets can interact in 2 ways. If you want to hear them chatter and squeak like a real hamster, then set this to the loving mode.
And if you want them to zip around, dance and scurry across the floor, then set this to the Explore mode.
And if you want to hear them chatter all night before they go to bed, just pet them behind the ears. They will chirp and make soothing sounds continuously.
And the really cool part if you want to put them to sleep and watch them yawn then all you have to do is press these furry creature on their back.
Toy Critics are already wondering if the Zhu Zhu Pets will become the next Cabbage Patch Kids.
