Zhu Zhu Pets™ Easter Baskets, Series 3 Hamsters, and Twitter party TONIGHT!

Hello, Zhu Zhu Fans!

Thanks goes to Rebecca for giving me this heads-up: you can order Zhu Zhu Pets™ themed Easter baskets from Build-a-Bear's website!  These may also be available in stores...can anyone confirm or deny this?  There are 4 different versions to choose from, consisting of a hamster, outfit, automobile, $5 B-a-B giftcard, basket, and candy.  Prices are $30-35 each.

Series 3 hamsters have arrived!  They were available on TRU.com several days ago, but out of stock right now.  As you can already guess, tons have shown up on eBay.  If you have a TRU nearby, you may be able to grab Spottie, Rocky, Moo, or Tex for your Easter baskets.  TRU is running a "Buy 2 get 1 free" ZZP special online.... or a free ZZP with any accessory $12.99 and up....so this may also be available instores!

Last but not least:


There will be a St. Paddy's day ZZP Twitter Party tonight from 7-8pm EST.  Remember, there WILL be prizes!!  Last time I won a Winkie and red coupe!!

Are you ready for another fantastic Zhu Zhu Pets Twitter party with Mom Select? I love to party with hostess @MomTalkRadio and the ladies of Mom Select, but we're even more excited than usual because this party combines our favorite furry friends with the fun of St. Patrick's Day!

Instead of leprechauns and pots of gold, we'll be chasing those lovable hamsters as they Zhu-Zhu-Zhoom into the twitter-sphere. With new hamster friends coming out all the time, there's

more Zhu Zhu Pets than there are colors in the rainbow! Join the party for a chance to win great prizes and get a head start on your collection.

Grab the kids and settle in for a green-themed Zhu Zhu

extravaganza! Make sure you brush up on your Zhu Zhu knowledge by visiting the

hamster blog on http://www.zhuzhupets.com/. These critters may be small but they have huge personalities and lots of unique facts, including their own symbols, birthdays and collector numbers! Party attendees will even have the exclusive opportunity to share their thoughts on creating the NEWEST Zhu Zhu Pet. Now, that's luckier than a four-leaf clover!


Series 2 Zhu Zhu Pets... $5.99 this week at Aldi!

Hello, Zhu Zhu Maniacs!

Here is a huge heads-up... this week at Aldi stores, Zhu Zhu Pets™ are advertised for $5.99 each!  Special purchase items are generally available on Wednesdays, but our store often puts them out the afternoon/evening before.  Although I am not sure which ones will, in fact, be in stock, Series 2 hamsters are the ones pictured in the paper ad and on the website.  I plan on stopping by our Aldi store after school.  We are making a couple of Zhu Zhu Pets™ baskets for our school's big fundraiser, and I will give you a guess who is in charge of them!

You may have noticed that Walmart has RAISED the prices of the large hamsters to $9 each.  This is after they have been on rollback to $7.44 for at least a month.  If you have an Aldi store near you, Walmart will match the $5.99 price.  However, our Walmart has only had Series 1 hamsters in at this point.

A little birdie told me that some Series 3 hamsters are starting to show up!  More about that tomorrow....

Fluffy the bunny is HERE!

Good Morning, Zhu Zhu Fans!

The above photo was posted on my local Hallmark chain's Facebook page just a little bit ago!  Fluffy is finally here!

They have already shown up on eBay... of course!  It appears that the retail price is $12.95.
