The Zhu Zhu Universe (or should I say Zhuniverse) has just gotten a lot bigger! Cepia's latest toy is Zhu Zhu Puppies, each with its own name, breed, personality and of course accessories:
Yorkie puppy Loolah
Maltese puppy Sabrina
Dachshund puppy Murphy
Husky puppy Dakota
Dalmatian puppy Howser
ShiTzu puppy Miss Priss
Check out this video with The Pea showing what these little Zhu Zhu puppies can do:
Truth be told, they're not much different from the original Zhu Zhu pet hamsters. They're the same size, and they do pretty much the same things: scoot, turn around when their noses bump into something, and make adorable noises. The one big difference is that their heads are perched on top of their bodies as opposed to the hamsters whose heads are integrated into their bodies. They look as cute as plush puppies can look, except of course they can scamper around like all Zhu Zhu pets!
We received Sabrina the Maltese puppy and Miss Priss the ShiTzu puppy, and my kids couldn't be happier. They love using the brush that comes with the puppies to comb out their long, silky hair. Personally, I'm just glad they don't shed like real dogs-- and like all our Zhu Zhu pets, you don’t need to feed them, to walk with them, and to clean after them :) If your child is a dog lover, she'll welcome the chance to enter the world of Zhu Zhu with these cute little puppies!
Along with the new puppies come lots of new accessories like dresses and hats and carriers and beds, and of course playsets. Here are the initial five:
- Hot Dog Puppy Push Along Playset
- Bow Wow Puppy Buggy Playset
- Puppies Bark De Triomphe Play Yard
- Puppies Bark Park Playset
- Posh Puppy Playhouse
We received a Bark de Triomphe Play Yard to review:
My kids are thrilled because they've seen the real Arc du Triomphe in Paris, and it tickles their fancy to add such a famous monument to their pretend games. I like that it's compatible with the existing Zhu Zhu pet, Zhu Zhu princess and Kung Zhu playsets, so you can connect everything to make one gigantic hamster/puppy/pet playset. These cute little puppies and their accessories are a great new addition to my kids' pretend play!
