Escape of the Zhu Zhu Pets!

Posted by Santa Claus on November 30th, 2009

A lot of kids are asking for Zhu Zhu pets this year.   They look like little hamsters.  The elves have been very busy making them.

Mrs. Claus is not sure if she likes them or not.  She is a little afraid of small furry things.

As I said, the elves have been very busy making them.  They have made a LOT of them.   After they make a pet they put it in a special box.  It is a VERY big box.  It is a VERY full, big box!

Well, Clumsy the Elf had to move the box.  Do you know what happened?   Can you guess?  Well, you will not believe it!

Clumsy moved the box and… nothing happened.  It was safe!  But then… the box fell over!

There were furry little Zhu Zhu hamster pets everywhere!

They like to run. Oh, my. They really like to run!

They ran under shoes.
They ran under chairs.
Why, one bunch of pets,
Ran thru elf underwears!

Then I ran in,
To see what’s the matter.
And Poor Mrs. Claus,
Was stuck on a ladder!

She was yelling out loud,
“Shoo, pets, shoo!”
And I laughed so loud,
My belly shook too!

But we picked them all up.
We put them away.
Safe and sound,
(We hope :) )
Until Christmas Day!

(OK, that was a silly sort of Santa rhyme wasn’t it!)

Well, we did not find all the little hamsters.  So I hope no one is too upset with us if we cannot bring them their Zhu Zhu pet for Christmas.  It is most likely still playing at the North Pole. Somewhere!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S. Now, Mrs. Claus calls them “shoo shoo” pets!  Do you have a pet?   (You can leave a message for me.  Or, scroll down to see what others have written!).

    I think little kids should ask for real hamsters instead of Zhu Zhu Pets. A real hamster would be a lot more fun to play with and so many animals need homes.

    My friend Tyson said:

    Dear Santa,

    If you have any problems with your Zhu Zhu pets, like a real hamster, set out some carrots or yogurt so the Zhu Zhu pets will go towards it and start eating it. It’s not Clumsy’s fault they fell over and yesterday I was a little bit clumsy myself! I broke the toilet paper holder in the bathroom! And I almost broke a candle when I was walking upstairs I kind of slipped and knocked it off the shelf!

    What is a Zhu Zhu pet? Well, it’s me again, the Vegan, and I am here to add another hippie mark to my record. I have no TV, and have not seen the ads.
    It doesn’t really surprise me that I haven’t heard of them; most their advertising was probably done on TV, a child’s strongest influence. I know that’s true of my aquaintences. So why would anyone bother to put ads anywhere else?

    The best way to make sure your wishes get into Santa’s book is to email Santa. They go straight in that way! If you put them on this blog then someone might forget to add them :(
