What's with these mechanical guinea pigs? Zali and Jett didn't really take much part in the pokemon thing as it swept the school apart from a few home-made cards we made on the computer (with unbeatable powers heh heh heh) so for them to suddenly come home and ask for Zhu Zhu pets as a reward for their recently finished tick chart was quite surprising - I'd never heard about them before! Of course now I know WAY too much. I'm especially surprised as they don't do that much apart from scurry about and make random noises. But they are handily small, they don't come with bags of little bits (although Jett's has some Kung Zhu battle armour) and on the scale of annoying pets or toys, these rate really low.
Apparently they took the US by storm in 2009 (we're so behind here in tassie!) .
