Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (6 ):

For kids caught in the Zhu Zhu Pets craze, the site is fine for an occasional visit but it doesn't offer much in the way of education or interaction. It offers a few amusing, age-appropriate games, information about the ZhuZhus, and a few ideas to spark offline fun like coloring pages and cutouts. There's some YouTube videos here of real kids playing with Zhu Zhus while an offscreen adult prompts them to say what they like about the toy. This odd way to add video advertising to the site seems like an unfortunate attempt to put unmarked ads on the site without kids recognizing them as such. Of course, all of this fun is under the goal of selling more Zhu Zhus, even if you cannot buy directly from this website.

Online interaction: There are no opportunities to interact with others on this site.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
