If you really have to throw your money away...

I readily admit that I don't get the Zhu Zhu pet phenomena. Actually, I'm pretty sure that no kid is clamoring for these things, but someone got a press release into the right hands and then overnight it became a hot toy. Consider the Amazon reviews here which are not very flattering.

However, if you are tempted to wast..., I mean spend your money on these things the best bet in town will be Walmart next week.

"From December 21 to December 23, starting at 7 am local time each day, Walmart stores will have stock of the hard-to-find Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters for $8 each. That's the lowest price we've seen for these in-demand toys. (We've only seen them for as low as $18 shipped.) Sales tax is added where applicable. Please note that approximately 20 to 60 Zhu Zhu Pets will be available per store per day. Customers will receive tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis prior to store opening. Limit one Zhu Zhu Pet per customer per day."

$8 seems reasonable for these things. They'll be flooding the dollar store by March.

Happy Holidays!
