The World Of Zhu-Zhu
Review & Giveaway
Have you met The Happy’s?? We have and if your kids have anything to say about it, you will too, very soon!
Brought to life by the same creators as Zhu-Zhu’s these soft, cuddly, plush pets do much more than sit there and look super cute. They are motorized and interactive. Think Zhu-Zhu mixed with pillow pet. The Happy’s interact with each other, their accessories and your child. Each Happy comes with a “treat”, but the treats can be used with all the pets. Using the treats, your child is able to get their pets to do tricks and even train them.
Parenting In Northern Kentucky was sent a box of The Happy’s to review and we had a blast with them. Our first challenge to enjoying The Happy’s was getting them out of the box. They are packed in their boxes so securely, you will need a screwdriver to get them out. Hang on to the screwdriver after they are out because you will also need it to open and close the battery compartment (2 AA batteries not included). My youngest (not for children under 3) squealed with delight as she watched Mittens and Chance jet around and try to climb the walls. I had to laugh, because just like a real pet, I had to keep reminding her to be gentle and not pull their tails. Even funnier, she called for the dog and he came straight to her. The makers do not claim the pets do this. It was just cute timing. Then my 9 year old son wanted in on the action. He brought their treats over and had them doing the tricks written on each treat. He even got them to come to and follow him. These little guys do take some patience to figure out. I would suggest starting with just having one pet out at a time. When your kids get the hang of how they work, add more and accessories. Again, think Zhu-Zhu’s.
We took The Happy’s to a birthday party with kids of various ages and they had the best time. As I said, it takes patience and a little time to get the hang of interacting with them. It was chaotic with 4 pets and a bunch of kids running around. I wouldn’t suggest these for a large group of kids who have never played with them before. For kids that have mastered interacting with their pets, the more the better! The pets love to interact with each other and their accessories.
The Happy’s are fun for all ages above 3. Different ages seem to play with them in different ways. The younger children had fun watching them run around while the older children had a great time interacting with them and their treats. Even the adults had fun with these pets. In fact, my aunt wanted me to give you her seal of approval; “This 80 year old thinks The Happy’s are just adorable and wants to get one or two for herself”. The Happy’s Chase and Play Ball was super fun. The Happy’s were attracted to the ball. They love to chase it and push it around.
These guys really are super cute. I have a feeling they will be the “toy to have” this summer. The next time you are at Toys R Us, Justice, Walmart, or Target, stock up. It’ll make the job of finding the perfect gift for that next birthday party much easier.
