Question by Landon: which zhu zhu pet accessories to get?
My friend’s little girl is having a 3rd birthday party, and I have a zhu zhu pet for her. I was also going to get 2 accessories to go along with it, but I know nothing about them. Is there a certain one that is the “main” one and the rest are attachments; or do they all go together? Also, which 2 do kids seem to like the most?

The main Zhu Zhu Pets accessory is the Hamster Funhouse. It runs about $ 32 and comes with an additional Zhu Zhu Pet. It can be had for around $ 25 if you don’t want the included hamster. All of the Zhu Zhu Pet accessories attach to this Hamster Funhouse. Without the Hamster Funhouse the pieces (accessories) will not connect, though some of them can be played with individually. There is also a Hamster Starter House that is slightly cheaper than the Hamster Funhouse. The add ons will attach to either the Starter House or the Funhouse.
The Hamster Mobile and Garage attaches to the Funhouse, but the car can be played with with/without the Funhouse. The Skateboard and U Turn is really made to only work with the Funhouse. The Hamster Wheel only works with the Funhouse
In terms of accessories that can be played with without purchasing the Funhouse, I highly recommend the Adventure Ball (a hamster ball) that the hamster runs inside. The Surf Board with Sleep Dome can also be used independently without the Funhouse, but I don’t think it’s as fun as the ball. The pet bed and blanket can also be used without the Funhouse or Starter House but it’s not much to play with, as can the Pet Carrier that includes the blanket.
If you plan to buy additional accessories in the future, then I would recommend the Starter House or the Funhouse and the Adventure Ball as the first choices to purchase. Most of the accessories will NOT work without one of the houses to attach the pieces to. If you don’t plan to buy the Starter House or Funhouse, then I would recommend the Adventure Ball and the Surf Board with Sleep Dome at the top choices.
In terms of popularity, the Adventure Ball provides the most enjoyment as far as accessories go, and most children enjoy seeing the hamster race thru the tubes on the Funhouse.
