Zhu Zhu Pets

Manufacturer: Cepia LLC
Price: $9.99
Ages: 4 and up

You may remember Zhu Zhu Pets from last year, especially if you were stuck with the frustrating holiday shopping task of trying to find the little hamsters on store shelves. This year, they won't be quite as likely to sell out at your local toy store, says Gottlieb. Cepia has introduced a host of new models, including Kung Zhu Battle Hamsters aimed at boys.

Like other collectible toys, new Zhu Zhu Pets will work with any Zhu Zhu Pets and accessories your child already has, giving them a little more play value. This is one way toys can provide value: If they get children playing with last year's toys, then you've effectively extended their useful life span, says Byrne.
