Where can Zhu get a hamster?

Given their popularity, it can be a bit tough to get your hands on those oh-so-popular Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters. They’re not super expensive off the shelf. The Toys “R” Us and Walmart Web sites have them listed at $10 and $8, respectively, but, as of early last week, neither online store had any in stock.

And good luck finding them in physical stores. They can be had at places like Walmart, but they don’t last long. Toy hunters know Tuesday morning is typically when new shipments are shelved at stores. But there’s been some word that shipments of Zhu Zhu Pets have been random and sporadic.

They’re up for grabs at eBay, but you’ll almost certainly pay through the cute little pink nose. You can also get them through Amazon.com, but they can run upward of $40 or $50.
