Yesterday Jude and I braved the hot and humid North Carolina day to attend the Zhu-niverse tour stop at the Toys R’ US in Cary, NC. I’ve heard a lot about Zhu Zhu pets and Kung Zhu but never really knew what they were. Jude is a little too young to know about these type of things, but through all my blog friends I was aware that these are hot toys for elementary school age kids.
I was excited to check out these toys and see what all the buzz was about. Jude immediately went to the demonstration table for Kung Zhu and knew exactly how to play with them. He spent a good 20 minutes around the table checking out all the different Zhus. There were a lot of fun interactive things for kids to do while visiting the Zhu-niverse tour. You can take a quiz to determine which Zhu you are, and even become a Zhu Pet yourself. Then there is the Giant Hamster trail where you collect coins like in the Zhu Zhu Pets video game. Then you can go through the Kung Zhu training grounds. (Jude loved the gong at the end.) And finally the gaming tent and Zhu tables where you can try out the toys and games.
We had a great time running around dancing to the music, trying out toys and playing with other kids. Now that Jude and I have seen how fun Zhu Zhu pets are I’m sure Jude will want one now. I also met some other local blog moms who were attending the event which was a lot of fun.
