My home is under attack! Kung Zhu Review & Giveaway!

But never Fear Kung Zhu is here!!
Introducing the hottest new line from Cepia evolving from of Zhu Zhu Pets...Kung Zhu Pets! These warrior hamsters are far from being the cute and cuddly Zhu Zhu Pets that everyone fell in love with. But make no mistake, these ultra cool, tough pets will be a sure competition to the original Zhu Zhu Pets! With eight original characters split into two battling groups called Special Forces and Ninja Warriors, Kung Zhu Pet owners will have the thrill of training each character to transform fighting, battling warriors. While these Kung Zhu hamsters may start of as "cute" and "mild-mannered" once they are sent into their main training grounds, smart chip technology will actually allow you to hear a distinct personality transformation of fighting ninja and warriors.

Zhu Zhu Pets, the whimsical motorized hamsters that conquered during last year's holiday shopping season, are coming back strong in 2010. Really, really strong: Meet Kung Zhu Battle Hamsters, the militant hamster arm of Zhu Zhu, loaded with elements that appeal especially to boys.

The new line will feature Special Forces, Ninja Warriors, Rangers, and the Skull Tribe Battle Hamsters, along with armor/battle gear, vehicles, and training arenas.
Training arenas? Prior to their "training," you might mistake the Kung Zhu squad for a traditional Zhu Zhu Pet. They dart around, scurry from place to place, and coo and squeak based on the unique environment they encounter. But all that changes when the hamsters encounter the magical "Tablet of Zhu," a special training ground that transforms the Zhu Zhu Pets into Kung Zhu Special Forces or Ninja Warriors, ready to do battle against each other.

Look For Kung Zhu Battle Hamsters to be out in June!


 The super fantastic and completely amazing people at MomSelect and Kung Zhu selected me to host a Kung Zhu Party! And luck would have it that the box arrived on the day of the kiddos' graduation! Boy did I have a surprise for them! The kids all loved the toys and had a blast playing with them. I was pleased to find everything very easy to assemble. Simple picture instructions accompany every single item, making it very fast to put it all together. I love the fact that everything can only go on ONE way, so you can't do it wrong. I also like the the Kung Zhu's work right out of the box - no additional batteries needed.  There are 8 different warriors, on four different teams. They meet in the Battle Area and battle it out for victory. It was awesome that each kid got to pick a different one to call their own, and then send them into the battle arena. On their website - http://www.kungzhu.com/ - you can read a bio for each of the Battle Hamsters and see some cool videos about the whole line of toys. What I especially like about these is that while you can get all the stuff to play with them, they also just work on the ground too. The totally random movements and sounds keep the kids occupied for quite a while! This was so much fun for the kids and the parents.
Disclaimer: Although I did receive the Kung Zhu Party Pack from MomSelect and Kung Zhu, I was in no other way compensated for this review.

I am gonna win these for Olivia!!!

She keeps asking for the playset for her birthday so if I win it that would be awesome.

We already have 6 of these things running around our house including 2 of the new KungZhu guys. The worst part about them is not being able to turn them off when the kids take them into a movie theater and getting hair stuck in the wheels but eliminating another animal to feed and clean its cage=priceless!!

I would love to win this for my nephew! He discovered Zhu Zhu's about 6 weeks before Christmas, when the only way I could find one was to pay $50+ on eBay. Couldn't afford that! So the little guy has been hamster-less. We see the commercial for Kung Zhu whenever he's over and he gets excited every time. This would be an awesome gift for his birthday in September, I'd just have to find the Battle Hamster! Thanks for the chance to win!!!
