Giveaway: Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster and a thank you to Cepia, LLC!

Thanks for visiting - this giveaway has ended!
It's the hottest toy this holiday season and they are really cute! You can read my previous review about Zhu Zhu Pets, but I'm guessing that you already know that your kids want one this holiday season or you wouldn't be reading any further! Before all the rules about the giveaway, I just wanted to send a huge thank you to Cepia, LLC, the makers of Zhu Zhu Pets, for providing a hamster and spiral slide to raise money for charity! Through a raffle at my small company, we have already raised $150 selling $1 tickets and still have a week of selling tickets left!

Okay, so how can you win a Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster (Num Nums to be exact) for your kids this Christmas? Well, I just happen to have Num Nums the hamster sitting on my desk to give away to one lucky reader so make sure you enter this giveaway!

(Please include your e-mail so it's easy to contact you. It's no fun to determine a winner and have no way to get a hold of them! If you're new to this whole blog giveaway thing - check your profile, your e-mail may be hidden!)

(If you're great at Twitter, let me know what I'm missing! - I can't get Twitter to shorten the html tonight, so I am giving up!)

Good luck! This contest will end on December 17, 2009 at approximately 9:00PM Central. A winner will be chosen at random, and e-mailed shortly after their name is chosen! I will also post the name of the winner within this giveaway posting. The winner will have 48 hours to e-mail me back with their contact information, or a new winner will be chosen.

I really want to give my nephew a Zhu Zhu pet but I don't want to spend a fortune on his present.

Janelle Thursday, December 10, 2009 at 10:12:00 PM CST  

Both of my girls are begging for these, and I've looked everywhere I shop, but I have yet to actually SEE one! I've never seen them in stock at all. It would be wonderful to win one for the girls! Thanks for the chance. :)

I decided early on that I wasn't going to spend the month leading up to the holiday chasing these little critters. I'd love to win one. My daughter would be so surprised, because I've been preparing her for disappointment.

I really need to get a Zhu Zhu pet for my granddaughter who has been talking non stop about how her friend has one. I would love to surprise her with her own.

I'd like to give one of these to my 12 year old. we haven't been able to find them anywhere. We even traveled an hour away to a toys r us since the local stores weren't placing limits on them. No luck

Its cute and cuddly - and it doesn't require cage changing like the real thing - my son would flip over this


Nicole Sunday, December 13, 2009 at 11:22:00 PM CST  

I have a 3 1/2 year old who saw this Zhu Zhu pet and now asks Santa for one. However, Santa is cheap and won't pay the outrageous markup on ebay just to get one. Hope you can help 'Santa' out. :)

my daughter has been asking for this. I stood in line at TRU only to be told there were none left. I have been trying to win one!

I have many nieces and nephews...I know at least one of them would love one of these.

pixie13 Monday, December 14, 2009 at 9:32:00 PM CST  

My daughter wants everything she sees (she's 4) but this is the only thing she keeps telling me she wants. You can't find them at the store & I'm not buying them online for forty bucks. Thanks for the great giveaway!


Angela Monday, December 14, 2009 at 10:35:00 PM CST  

My kids have been asking for these and I had no clue what they were. I looked at the stores and nothing. Someone said "check ebay" and lo and behold they were $40-$60. Yikes!

Angela Monday, December 14, 2009 at 10:36:00 PM CST  

I added myself as a blog follower.

For twitter urls. You can go to and it will shorten your url for you. Twitter used to do it before the updates maybe a month ago. Good luck. :)
