Kung Zhu Review and Giveaway (Closed)

I have fallen in love with the original line of Zhu Zhu Pets.  Now Cepia, LLC has introduced a new line of Zhu Zhu, Kung Zhu.  These new "battle" hamsters are geared for boys aged 4-10. 

Kung Zhu Hamsters have 4 Modes, Talk Mode, Explore Mode, Sleep Mode, and Power Up Battle Mode.  The Talk, Explore, and Sleep modes are the same as the original Zhu Zhu Pets.  The Power Up Battle Mode is new!  In the Power Up Battle Mode, the Zhu Zhu will change both its sound and behavior when it reads one of the codes that come with the armor and the battle arena.  Kung Zhu's battle for about three and a half minutes then will go to sleep to save the battery.

Kung Zhu's have the same playfulness as the original Zhu's, but different in that you get to "Train, Transform, and Battle" your Zhu for combat in the battle arena.  Your Kung Zhu will train as it goes through the training ground.  Once it get through that, you can put on the battle gear to transform your Pet.  Finally, you send your Zhu Zhu into battle, where only the strongest will survive!  The first set of hamsters are the "good" hamsters.  They include the Ninja Hamsters, the Delta Forces, the Rangers, and the Dragon Tribe.  The "bad" hamsters are called the Bad Skull Tribe. 

Instead of  clothes for these hamsters, these battlers have battle gear to wear.  This is sold separately from the Kung Zhu Pet.  You can also purchase the Battle Arena, Training Arenas, and the Special Forces and many other accessories to build you own, unique play set. 

Like the original Zhu Zhu Pets, the Kung Zhu's are innate to imaginative play.  Kids will spend hours arranging and rearranging the play sets to create new battle scenarios. 

Check out Kung Zhu  online too at .  You will find  Hamster Bios,  Fun and Games, News and Events, Info and Instructions, and much more!  Kung Zhu Zhu Pets sell for about $9.99 each and accessories like battle armor, retail for about $7.99.  Additional play sets will retail from $9.99 to $29.99.

Here are the Bios I found online:

Kung Zhu Pet Battle Hamster Toy Stone Wall Special Forces:
Stonewall: Loud, crazy, and no one really knows what he’s saying. Pretty much if there’s a fight, just point him in the right direction and when the dust settles, you’ll find one happy hamster..
Likes: Battles, Wrestling and Ladders.
Dislikes: Checkers, Capes, and Ladders.

Kung Zhu Pet Battle Hamster Toy Sgt. Serge Special Forces:
Sgt. Serge: Sgt wants nothing more than a great day for everyone, and if that great day doesn’t happen, then by golly, he’ll know the reason why.
Likes: Warm apple cider, apple pie, and folk lore. (Johnny Appleseed.)
Dislikes: Cloudy days, swings without kids swinging, and hamsters who play with the idea that it is okay to swim before the allotted 30 minutes time frame for digestion.

Kung Zhu Pet Battle Hamster Toy Rivet Duke Special Forces:
Rivet: Master of demolitions and leader of the special forces, Rivet loves a good explosion, so much that every 4th of July, all the Zhu Zhu’s that can make their way to his house always love the amazing fireworks show.
Likes: Good jokes, tasty brats, and tough obstacle courses, not in that order, but doesn’t mind if they happen at the same time.
Dislikes: the color red, cold pizza, and snails.

Kung Zhu Pet Battle Hamster Toy Rock O Special Forces:
Rock-O: Some call him noodle ‘cause he has the biggest brain in the bunch. Rock-O is in charge of communications and technology. If he doesn’t know the answer to your question… he’ll Zhu-ogle it.
Likes: Video Games, Potato Chips, and Sky Diving.
Dislikes: the lack of knowledge.

Kung Zhu Pet Battle Hamster Toy Drayko Ninja Warrior:
Drayko: a JONIN in his clan, Drayko is a fast learner of the ancient art of stealth, and he still has a lot of power to tap inside. Drayko will stop at nothing to be the best dragon he can, and leaving his clan to help the world is one way he sees best in helping him become SHOGUN.
Likes: his family Katana, the code of the dragon, and pudding.
Dislikes: the skull clan, tape and pop rock candy… it doesn’t help with being stealthy.

Kung Zhu Pet Battle Hamster Toy Thorn Ninja Warrior:
Thorn: no one knows where he came from, or what he wants. He truly is zhu-vil. He’s rough, tough and isn’t afraid to cheat.
Likes: maybe Azer knows, but he won’t tell. Thorn is the Zhu of mystery.
Dislikes: we’re pretty sure it’s everything… literally.

Zhu Zhu Pets - Kung Zhu Ninja Warrior - YAMA the Hamster:
Yama : only a student in the dragon clan, Yama is the best friend of drayko, and well never leave his side. Some might say he’s too loyal. Yama might not be the fastest ninja, but he’s definitely the strongest. He’s the only hamster in his clan that can use the boars head, the ancient war hammer of the dragon clan.
Likes: moving mountains, changing the course of rivers and reading.
Dislikes: birds.

Kung Zhu Pet Battle Hamster Toy Azer Ninja Warrior:
Azer: the older brother of Drayko, Azer was raised in the dragon clan. He left the clan to better himself, and joined the kung zhu forces. But when his best friend Duke beat him in the arena for title of Lieutenant, he knew he couldn’t take it anymore. He left kung zhu, but couldn’t return to his clan because of shame. He created the skull clan, and so far only has one member, and the two of them will stop at nothing to bring about the worlds not so happy day.
Likes: spoiled milk, baseball and the katanas of fire (his personal swords)
Dislikes: sunny days, ice cream and Sgt. Serge
