Zhu Zhu pet hamsters are furry little toy hamsters that come in a range of colors. They are battery operated and have their own unique sound and voice. When they are switched on, they have two different modes.

There is the loving mode. The hamster will squeak just like a real hamster and your child can pet it just as they would a real life pet.

These used to by known as Go Go pets and but the company changed their name to Zhu Zhu, which I think is a much nicer name.
