About those Zhu Zhu pet hamsters...

Below is a partial list of must-have toys we’ve overpaid for during past Christmas seasons:

Cabbage Patch Kids
Tickle Me Elmo

This year it’s Zhu Zhu the robotic pet hamster that is taking over the world -- well kid’s world’s anyway.

Are Zhu Zhu pet hamsters the Furby’s of 2009?

Their names are Patches, Chunk, PipSqueak, Mr. Squiggles, and Num Nums and they coo, purr, explore their surroundings, and respond to various stimuli.

You can even buy accessories for them. Don’t worry, they also have a sleep mode.
