Kung zhu pets review and giveaway

Give away Ended-Winner Saundra Post 3

Last Christmas you may recall the zhu zhu pets rage with our children. My kids were given several of them as of course it was the hottest toy. Sadly though it was my youngest son who enjoyed them the most. My oldest two played for a little while. It may be because we didn't get them the accesories though.
Just recently I recieved the new Kung Zhu pets. Now in this lots I was sent several accessories. To paint you a picture of how the evening started ( and continued) my oldest two nearly ripped all of thr boxes to get these toys out. My boys had already seen the commercials for the Kung Zhu pets. I believe for my boys the main attraction to the pets are because they battle. I'm sure one of thr biggest things that appeal to boys is anything that fights.
With the pets we recieved some accessories to go with it. The battle Center, and some shields and armor. They had a blast for that evening with these.

My boys are ages 6 1/2, 4 and 18 months old. My oldest was interested that evening, and played for hours before bed time. Longer than he does with some toys. He has gotten into the age of video games though, so toys don't appeal to him often, or for very long, despite how we now give him a time limit on television or movie watching and video game playing. He would never move from the couch if it was his choice. Now my 4 year old did continue to play with the toys, although it wasn't as much fun for him after his older brother stopped playing with them.
And of course my 18 month old has a ball pushing the button down and making them go. He gets giddy every time. He was also the one who enjoyed the regular zhu zhu pets.

Now my point of view on the Kung Zhu Pets. My boys have transformers, power rangers, and play swords and play guns. Now here's my take on these things. I tried to keep these type of toys away from my children, however it didn't take. I think my oldest son had a foam sword by the time he was 18 months old. And watched Power rangers by age 15 months. He was a early developer.

The Kung Zhu pets, are harmless in my opinion. The battling, is very much light and although it encourages fighting to a small degree. I'd prefer these over Transformers.
So in my book. They get an B +.

The Kung Zhu pets would be a great gift for a child around the ages 3 to 4 because there are small parts to the armor. I would think most kids over the age of 5 may find them a bit young for them depending on their interests of course. You can find these pets at Toys R Us.

Now you can win it for your son (or daughter). A great gift for a summer birthday.
One lucky mom or dad can win a Giant Battle Arena, two battle Hamsters, Two battle Armors, a ninja training ground and a missle attack tower. (approximate value $110)
