This review is from: Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster Mr. Squiggles - Light Brown (Toy)
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 am literally laughing out loud!! I have a picture in my head of a lil hamster zooming around duct work... I just cleaned my 5 year old's REAL hamster cage, so this was very needed! Thanks for the laugh.

You do know these are for ages 3 and up right? O_O"

Your post cracked me up because I can easily see this exact scenerio happening in our home! Our youngest sons are proteges of Fred & George Weasley, age 8. I thought Zhu-Zhus would be a perfect solution to their "We want hamsters for Christmas" wish, but now I'm not so sure (their older brothers had real hamsters until the two critters got out, disappeared into our walls and died -- ugh!) On the positive side, there wouldn't be an "oder" after the batteries died, would there? <G>

I'm sorry that happened to you, but the visual you created of these mechanical hamsters racing around in the ductwork made me laugh. Thanks for the chuckle.

I hope that when you turn the heat on, it doesn't cause the batteries to explode and cause a fire inside the ductwork!!! Better find a way to get it out of there!

Good one, I assume your we're kidding. Residential heating units are not capable of producing the temperature necessary to vaporize the water in the electrolytic mixture in the battery to increase the pressure and cause the battery to explode, so you shouldn't worry. You would probably need several hundred degrees Fahrenheit of ambient temperature, since your not directly introducing energy through the terminals.

I love it! Thanks for making me laugh and taking some of the stress of Chrsitmas shopping online off my shoulders!

Do those ages really matter? My sister is 10 with art sets that say 12+, and it doesn't seem like anything in there needs another 2 years experience.. Do little mechanical hamsters really need another 6 months?
