Patches... where ARE you??

Hello, Zhu Zhu Lovers!
So... have you been able to track down Patches the hamsters?

Patches certainly is the sneakiest of the bunch! Here is another question that the fine people at Cepia, LLC. answered for us inquisitive Zhu Zhu Pets™ fans!

Q: Is the starter set (that includes Patches the hamster) exclusive to Toys R Us? Will it be available for sale in other stores, as well?

A: The Giant Hamster City Playset is exclusive to Toys R Us... Patches is included in this set as well as the starter set.... This hamster is ONLY available in the sets and not sold separately. The Starter Set with Patches will be available at "select" Hallmark stores, Shopko, Duckwall, and Meijer.

The Giant Hamster City playset is currently on Toysrus.com with a list price of $84.99. It is still notated with the "NEW" icon, and I personally have not seen it in stock yet. This set includes the funhouse, wheel, sleep dome, adventure ball, and Patches and Mr. Squiggles hamsters. (It is unclear whether it also comes with the surfboard or the tiny play ball that go along with the sleep dome and adventure ball when purchased seperately). You won't save too much money buying this set rather than the individual pieces, but it might just be worth it to grab multiple pieces in one set!!

The Hamster House Starter Set retails for around $19.99. In addition to the stores listed above, I was told by a fellow webber that they were able to preorder this set from Target. Although I personally did not see it on Target's website, I do believe them. It is possible that Cepia is making changes to their distribution plans and unleashing of new products because of the intense interest in this line of toys!

Happy Hunting! And keep those Zoolert pages on your screens... my rooster was crowing all day yesterday, as TRU.com seemed to be haphazardly adding hamsters and accessories thoughtout the day.

Zhu Zhu Pets™ and "Black Friday"

Hello fellow Zhu Zhu Pets™ Hunters!

The good people at Cepia, LLC. recently answered a few of our most talked about Zhu Zhu Pets™ questions! I would like to share one of them with you now. ☺

Q: Should we expect any special packaging/promos for the Day-After-Thanksgiving ("Black Friday") sales blitz?

A: We do not have any "special" packaging for Black Friday... but we should have 4 new characters available in December.

So just when you thought you only had 4 impossible-to-find little hamsters to track down, 4 more get thrown into the mix!! LOL If you have been lucky enough to find some of the accessories, you would have noticed this picture on the back of the package:

So according to Cepia, these additional hamsters should be available to purchase by December. Anyone who has been checking Toysrus.com lately may have noticed these new items added to the Zhu Zhu Pets™ products today:

Look familiar? Although they are not for sale yet, they are notated with "New"... so potentially these 4 new characters could be rolled out sooner than planned to help with the current supply-and-demand issues! Keep your eyes peeled and keep those Zoolert pages up and ready!

Happy Hunting!!

Zhu Zhu Pets™...on-line....for RETAIL prices!

Finally! After several weeks of waiting, the Zhu Zhu Pets™ and accessories have started showing up in bulk on Walmart.com, Target.com, and Toysrus.com!!
Of course, they are out of stock now when I just checked all of these sites. One great tool for you to use is www.zoolert.com. It refreshes automatically every 2 minutes, and when your needed item (in this case, Zhu Zhu Pets™) are available at any online retailer, you will get an alert in the form of an animal noise! Just minimize the pages on your computer and go about your business.

Keep in mind that Walmart.com has the lowest prices (online or in stores) for the Zhu Zhu Pets™ and accessories...plus you can get free shipping if you use the Site to Store option. But for those of you who are having an extra-hard time tracking these critters down, a few extra dollars at another retailer is much better than paying inflated eBay/Amazon prices.
Happy Hunting!!!

Welcome to Zhu Zhu Pets™ Hunters!!

Hello! My name is Randi, and I am a mother of two girls, ages 5 and 3. If your kids are like mine, they are running around the house singing "All the fun without the mess!" over and over again.

Yes, they are Zhu Zhu Pets™!! Interactive, robotic hamsters that are sooo entertaining to watch. And definitely poop-free. If your little (or not-so-little) ones are planning on asking Santa for Zhu Zhu's, you better start grabbing now! Already they are flying off stores shelves, sometimes in a matter of minutes. My intention for starting the fanpage is to give people an outlet to talk about the Zhu Zhu Pets, as well as to give hints/tips on when and where to find them at retail. Please do NOT support price-gouging on eBay and Amazon!
