Okay as a family who has tried despretly to be responsible pet owners we just don’t have the time patience whatever. My kids love pets, but I am tired of being the one taking care of them so have banned pets until the children are a bit older. So for my children I am hoping this will be a somewhat pleasing replacement for the time being.
One of the pluses of this toy is it’s price. With kids toys getting so expensive these are $10 or less! Yea you can go overboard on accessories now or buy a little at a time as a reward and to encourage the kids to continue to “care” for their zhu zhu pets!

If it fits in the palm of my hand and poops it’s not allowed through my front door. I have allready purchased ZHU ZHU pets as Christmas gifts for my kids they really really cute I can’t wait until my kids open them.

LOL! I like the finding it under their bed by December 29th bit; more than likey true.

And I don’t think either of them are sick… it’s a toy; not that big of deal. One of which my daughter is getting for Christmas too. :)

It is a shame many people actually do see pets as “toys for their children”. Do not expect your child to suddenly become a responsible being because you gave it a pet to take care of. It will not happen.
