  • A ZhuZhu pet....

    Honestly I think age 4 is too young for her own pet. A shared pet where you are helping to take care of it and make sure it is safe though is fine. I thought I read gerbils were great first pets. I think they bite less then hamsters. Not sure though. I am sure someone can chime in and help.

    I was about 7 when I got my own hamster and it was a good age to learn to be responsible about cleaning the cage, feeding etc...We had to learn and read up about what we could and could not do with our pets.

  • I would adopt an older dog that has experence with children. They are more tollerent of children then puppies.
