Zhu Zhu Pets™ Becoming Global! And Even a Cartoon!

Good Morning, Zhu Zhu Hunters!

On Monday, February 15th, it appears that the Zhu Zhu Pets™ will make their retail debut in New Zealand!  According to the article, it seems as though it will be the original 4 hamsters (plus Patches), along with the original accessories/house pieces.  Retail for hamsters will be $29.99 each. 

Remember when Mr. Squiggles was in Japan a few weeks ago?  I think I might know the reason now!  Sega Toys in Japan recently licensed the rights from Cepia to sell ZZP's in Japan and all over Asia!  It appears that they will start showing up in retail shops in April of this year. Sega is also working to develop a manga (comic book) version  to be out sometime this year. 

Most exciting??  Well... they plan to broadcast an animated version of Zhu Zhu Pets™ sometime around Spring 2011!  Japan animation, known as anime, is my absolute favorite type of cartoon, so I am very excited about this.  Anyone remember Hamtaro?

They could almost pass for Mr Squiggles and Chunk!  LOL
