ZhuZhu Puppies - Review

If you are a parent, I can almost bet you've heard of ZhuZhu Pets by now. Since the interactive hamsters have become available, they've been a hot hit with kids. The newest and latest release from Cepia, LLC, makers of ZhuZhu Pets, is ZhuZhu Puppies. Like the original ZhuZhu Pets, all ZhuZhu Puppies have their very own unique personality and sounds. They also have their very own selection of playsets, outfits, and accessories.

My children were able to look at and test some items from the newest line of ZhuZhu Puppies. Already familiar with the hamsters, they were elated to see the line branch out with a different animal. ZhuZhu Puppies work along the same concept as its predecessor. Included with each puppy is a small brush. They're cute as can be with their different looks and personalities.
Currently there are a number of ZhuZhu Puppy breeds available ranging from a dalmation and yorkie to a maltese and husky. With so many breeds of dogs, I think ZhuZhu Puppies could go far with the number they bring forth.

The outfits for ZhuZhu Puppies are easy to place on and they stay put. My 8 year old step-daughter seemed the most interested in ZhuZhu Puppies. My boys judged them to be neat as well, but thought they seemed to be more for girls.

There are a handful of playsets available for ZhuZhu Puppies. One is the Bark Park Playset that has a green lawn with bushes, trees, and entrances. With this playset is a blue bridge that extends out and the puppies give new sounds and movements when crossing the bridge. Another playset is the Posh Puppy Playhouse with feminine designs and a circle area for puppies to move around in. Also included is an extended bridge. The playsets can be played with alone or connected together to make it larger.

My only concern with ZhuZhu Puppies, or any ZhuZhu Pet for that matter, is the possibility of becoming tangled in a child's hair. The motorized wheels can cause entanglement if not properly used.

I'm joyed that Cepia, LLC has come out with this new line and can't wait to see what they add to it. The other kids can't either.
