  • According to the manufacturer, recommended for ages 4 and up. ..... Age rating of 4+. Zhu Zhu Pets™ are designed to be enjoyed by a wide range of ages both boys and girls and can be expanded to fill the imagination. They are not recommended for children younger than 4 years of age. . It is strongly recommended to follow the age rating set by manufactures on any product.
    • CAUTION: All motorized wheel toys have the potential for hair entanglement. To prevent entanglement, keep hair away from wheels. If a child’s hair gets caught by winding around a wheel, simply stop the wheel by firmly grabbing it. Next, press the back or head button once to stop motor from running

  • the reason i ask is cause i haven't actually seen them out of the package. So I am not sure if they come with little peices or what?

  • I don't think there is one. We bought them for my five year old daughter for her birthday, and my daughter who is 22 bought some for herself!

  • I think they say three and up on the package. The only thing I would watch out for is their hair in the wheels- there is no off switch and if a girl with long hair held one up to her face and turned it on, it would be easy for the hair to wrap around the wheel and I think you'd have to cut it out!

  • My 3 yr old has one. It didn't come with any little parts but I do have to remind her to keep it away from her hair. She loves it!

  • I don't know but my almost eleven year old twins and three year old son have all requested them:) I thought they seemed fine for my three year old.

  • Watch out for their hair. There is a hazard of children's hair (especially long hair) getting caught up in the wheels of the Zhu-zhu pets wheels, which are battery operated.
