Do little boys really like Those little zhu zhu hamsters

my funds for christmas are limited and want to be sure to buy stuff he will surely like rather then have them sit around.. are these little things a big hit?
They are on sale for dirt cheap this week.. BTW my son is 6 and he has never really said anything about them.

  • I can't say if boys like them or not but my daughter does. I hope they are a hit, I get where you are coming from. I have been laid off since February and my hubs just got laid off so our Christmas is not going to be much either.

  • my kids love them (7 yr old boy and 5 yr old girl) but they are both animal lovers and arent allowed to have real hamsters or guinea pigs becuase our dog would eat them.

  • Our neighborhood is mostly boys. Last summer they would all drag them out and have zhu zhu battles. Today my girls brought out their track for their zhu zhu and the boys next door ran in and got their hamsters. They've been a hit from my perspective.

  • My son is getting a couple for Christmas this year, they have the Khung Zhu battle ones this year. You can even buy "armor" for them.

  • I got some for my son last Xmas (he was 4 years old) and he loves them. He doesn't play with all of them all the time, but he really really loves the little gray one, more than any of his toys.

  • my sons say they do, but they never talk about it unless they happen to see the commercial for it

  • My son is 9 and is mad that his sisters have them and he doesn't.  I'm going to get him one for Christmas.  If he was younger I'm sure he's really play with it.
