After much hype and anticipation, we finally got mr squiggles today. The kids played with him for about 30 secs. and he was put down. I think this product was a little oversold. As far as I can tell, it does nothing but run though its toys making farm animal sounds. It also has a function where it doesn't run, it just makes cooing noises. I really don't see the "personality" on display. If you buy this for your child for christmas, make sure you have a back up gift. This will probably not be a big hit by christmas afternoon.

This is a great toy and my little ones love them, I am angry that all these vendors are selling them for so much, be patient and go to Toys r us or Walmart, they are priced at $8.00. Because they are not in stock every where these greedy people are taking of advantage of Parents looking for the perfect gift!

Got this today for $8 at Walmart. Super fun and cute for my 2 1/2 year old twins BUT within 20 minutes they removed the heating vent cover and dropped it in my duct work where it is now running around..so keep away from the vents HA! And don't spend this much $$ on them...

I had never heard of this toy till recently and lucked out by stumbling upon them at TRU. It's really a cute toy, but the sounds the hamster makes are a little strange: rooster crowing, cow mooing, etc. Strange noises for a hamster, lol. My daughter really loves it, and it is adorable as it runs around on the floor. As the toy's warning states on the bottom, do not get this near your hair because it will wind it up on the back wheels. Also, it picks up fuzz and animal hair on the floor so you will periodically need to get some tweezers out to get all the crud out so it can resume normal speeds. Haven't gotten any of the accessories for this rodent because they can't be found.

That said, the stores do need to put a limit on how many you can buy then more families will be able to buy for their children rather than eBay sellers out to make a profit. When I got this one, I bought two - one for my daughter's bday and one to hold for her Christmas present. However, the store had a limit of 4. I think that's excessive in light of them being in such hot demand and short supply.

I hope I'm not in the minority who refuses to pay more than $[...] for these things (which is what I paid). Parents are nuts if they pay $[...] for this. It's not worth that much money, and your child will be just as happy with something else. Seriously.

I ordered the Zhu Zhu pets and some accessories from the Amazon vendors because my daughter wanted them for her birthday and our local Wal-Mart wasn't going to have them in-stock until after. My bad! What cost me $179.00 for some Zhu Zhu pets/accessories and shipping would have cost about $30.00 had I waited for Wal-Mart to stock them. I've always been pleased with what I've purchased from Amazon, but this was a MAJOR disappointment. The toys are great. My daughter loves them. But they were totally overpriced. Don't buy these on Amazon!

We had been looking for one of these for our daughter (age 7) since she asked for a real hamster just a week or so ago. I finally found some of the accessories at retail, and decided to try to fight what has been termed here the "price-gouging" of these toys on Amazon by offering them at my cost to other parents. Not so straight-forward as it might sound, as it turns out.
Well...my COST (for example, the medium-sized ($18) accessory) was retail price plus sales tax (=$19.62)
Amazon charges a base fee of $0.99 PLUS 15% of an item's sale price PLUS the shipping allowance (yes, they even take a commission on the shipping charge, which in this case is $5.99) So, Amazon's commission fee is $0.99 + 0.15(23.10 + 5.99) + an additional amount I haven't figured out yet. On this particular sale, Amazon's commission would be $6.88 (as quoted by Amazon on the "sell an item" page).
Wait...it gets better. Due to the high cost of postage, $5.99 doesn't even begin to cover what it costs to mail the item to someone in PA, CT, FL, etc. Actual cost via USPS is $11-13 priority mail, and even more via parcel post (as if that makes any sense)! The least expensive way I could find to ship it was FedEx Ground at $9.04-$9.53 depending on the state.
So, to BREAK EVEN on the purchase and try to get the toy to someone else who can't find one, I would have to sell the medium-size ($18 retail) toy for $35-36! (Twice the retail price)
That was a bit unexpected, since I was convinced these sellers were taking people to the cleaners.
Obviously, most sellers aren't going to go through all the hassle of buying, listing, and shipping for no profit, so I can now see why these crazy toys cost so much via 3rd party sellers on Amazon.

It's interesting to see how idiotic people can be. I mean, giving this toy only one star because the only thing it does is scurry around (in unpredictable directions) and make funny noises (40 different) - which incidentally is what it was designed to do - is like giving a Barbie also 1 star because all it does is just sit there. What does people expect it to do, hold an informed conversation? Tell good jokes? Write e-mails? Tell stories to your kids? Come on, get real! Sorry to hear you paid $50; I only paid $13 for mine. I bet your kids never enjoyed a teddy bear, as mine sure did.
