The holiday’s are approaching and some kiddos at my house dream of getting more pets. It’s already chaotic comedy at our house and the request is not for another cat, they want things like cheetahs and zebras. Crazy kiddos! Being the Super Mom that I am, thanks to the Zhu-niverse, those dreams are going to come true. Have you seen the new ZhuZhu Pets line, Zhu-Fari Pets? Oh, they are ferociously cute and far less expensive than a real pet, plus I’m not worried about the kiddos forgetting to feed them.
Still the size of a hamster, and though these don’t look as eerily life-like as hamsters, they are similar in weight. Press the paw back button and they are lightning fast, just like a real hamster. For me, the original ZhuZhus are a tad too life-like. I still squeal when the kiddos set me up for their pranks with them. The Zhu-fari is a different game. They are adorable!
Time to Play recently announce the nominees for the third annual People’s Play Awards and Zhu-Fari is a nominee in the Girl’s Category. Don’t let that lead you to believe these are girly. They are adorable but they have a wild side worthy of any child!
Like the other pets in Zhu-niverse, Zhu-Fari characters are as unique as kiddos. Each has its own name, birthmark, birthday, and special collector’s number. The fun begins by pressing their back and watching them zip and go. They move as unpredictably as their other Zhu-Zhu relaties, however, Zhu-faris make silly jungle-themed noises that even after a hundred times of hearing them, I’m still saying, “Awe”!
The selection is amazing. I’m in love with Jack the Lion, he’s the leader and it’s well-deserved. Not only do these zhu-fari pets come in the traditional single pet, but they are offered as a Zhu-Fari Deluxe assortment, where adorable baby characters are accompanied by a parent. Here’s a glimpse at the entire Zhu-Crew:
Baako the zebra: A natural explorer, Baako is brave and strong.
Zuri the leopard: A wise huntress and tracker.
Wharton the elephant: A clumsy cutie, Wharton is always tripping over his trunk.
Zulu and baby Button the giraffes: Zulu and Button love to explore, and due to their tall stature they can always be on the lookout!
Jack and baby Wilder the lion: Jack is the noble leader of the Zhu-Fari crew; he’s always looking after his fellow animals, especially baby Wilder.
Ozzy and baby Banana: These two monkeys are the entertainers. Ozzy loves to entertain Banana with music!
While as pets these critters are wild and fun, the Zhu-niverse would not be complete without habitats in fun Zhu-Fari play-sets and Accessories. Even more fun is that all the play-sets connect for hours of adventure and fun!
- Lion’s Park Playset: A playground for Zhu-Fari characters, the Lion’s Park Playset is an excellent environment for mommy and baby ZhuZhu’s. ZhuZhu Babies can slide down the slide, swing on the monkey swing, and play peek-a-boo.
- Lion’s Rock Playset: Watch as Jack the lion watches over the Zhu-niverse with this playset.
- Jiggle-Bug Jungle Playset: Zhu-Fari characters frolic through the set as jiggle-bugs magically fall from the tree. There’s even a special spot for a baby located at the top of the tree!
- Zippity Zip-Line Playset: ZhuZhu Babies fly on zip-lines through the Zhu-niverse in this playset! You can even use the zip-lines to connect different sets!
