So far, so good
on January 24, 2011
My son picked this out with his allowance money and the first thing we noticed was how easy it was to put together. My husband put it together, but he thinks an 8-10 year old would probably be able to do it alone.
Here is how it works: The Zhu Zhu walks up one tunnel and goes into the elevator where his nose hits a button that activates the elevator. The elevator only works for going up. To descend, it has to be pushed down manually, which could be seen as one drawback.
My son helps the ascent up the tunnel from time to time, but apparently one of the things about the Zhu Zhu pets is that they have a "random" element to their behavior. This toy kept my (5 year old) son occupied for several hours, so we feel like he got his allowance money's worth. The price also seems reasonable.
We are looking forward to hooking this piece up to other components of the Zhu Zhu "world."
