Kung Zhu: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis The new Kung Zhu products by Cepia will be tons of fun and provide a twist on my girls’ favorite Christmas toy.


Thanks to Mom Select, we received a generous box of the most popular Kung Zhu toys inlcuding the Battle Arena, battle hamsters, battle armor, buzzsaw tank, and many other accessories.  About Kung Zhu:

kungzhu2 “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.

results Last Christmas, I lost my mind and decided to stand in long lines in the wee hours of the morning to buy a $10 hamster that my daughter had her heart set on.  And I was not happy about it.  At all.  But, it turns out that it was the best $10 that “Santa” spent this year because both of my daughters still play with their beloved Zhu Zhu Pets almost daily.  Our Zhu Zhu family has grown to include some accessories and a few more “pets” but nothing like what showed up on my doorstep last week.


The cute little Zhu Zhu Pet hamsters have turned into lean, mean, fighting machines…..Kung Zhu!  Two hamster groups (the Special Forces and the Ninja Warriors) can don armor and fight it out in training grounds and ultimately in the battle arena!  Undoubtedly an attempt at attracting more boys to their customer base, I was worried that my daughters would not be a fan (after all, NONE of them are pink.)


We joined a friend and her two sons for a little Zhu Zhu party and all four kids went to town playing with the Kung Zhu sets!  My daughters jumped right in and battled with the boys and had an absolute blast.  The track was easy to set up and the battle armor snaps right on.  Once the armor is on, the hamster transforms from cuddly to courageous and his personality becomes one of a warrior!  My daughter’s favorite part?  The buzzsaw tank!!

hypothesis This June, Cepia launched a new line of Zhu Zhu Pet, called the Kung Zhu!  These hamsters transform from lovable pets to sparring warriors when dressed in armor and placed in the battle arena.  While the set appears to be geared towards boys, my daughters had no problem jumping into the middle of the playset and becoming part of the competition.  You can find the Kung Zhu line for sale at Toys R Us now!
