What It Is
What It Is
Since Zhu Zhu Pets were introduced in 2009, the "Zhu-niverse," as they call it, has continued to expand. This year the electronic hamsters get girly with the Zhu Zhu Princess line. One of the main playsets in the line is the Magical Princess Castle. Place a hamster at the entrance to the castle, press down and watch the hamster scurry inside to explore the castle.
The castle connects to the other main playset in the Zhu Zhu Princess line, the Magical Crystal Ballroom, which is sold separately. There are other accessories, such as the Carriage and Enchanted Outfits, to further the play and they are also sold separately. However, Zhu Zhu Princess products are fully compatible with other products in the Zhu Zhu Pets line, so kids can build and customize their own unique Zhu Zhu world using Zhu Zhu Pets hamsters and playsets they may already own.
Why It’s Fun
Girls who are into pretending to be princesses will like this new extension for their Zhu Zhu Pets. The Magical Princess Castle is a catalyst for great imaginative play. Kids love to fantasize about their pets in different settings, and this lets them do that, without getting a disgruntled or confused live hamster.
Who It’s For
The Magical Princess Castle is geared toward younger kids. Girls, ages 4 and up, will like it best because it's all about playing prince and princess. Whether they're already Zhu Zhu fans or are new to the toys, this is a colorful, fun and self-contained playset.
What to Be Aware of
This playset does not come with any Zhu Zhu Princess hamsters. They are sold separately.
Also, assembly is required, so set aside plenty of time to put the castle together. It helps to have all the parts laid out and to carefully read through the instructions. If you are giving this as a gift, you might want to consider giving it fully assembled.
