Everyone is going crazy for Go Go pet hamsters
on 9 December 2009
There was so much hype surrounding these little hamsters I wanted to get hold of one for my 3 year old son. I was lucky and bought mine from Amazon for under the RRP with free delivery. We recieved Num Nums the grey hamster. My son hadn't asked for this but as soon as he spotted it he got excited. Removing it from the package is a bit of nightmare with an over excited child stood at your side the ties are really difficult to remove and I was worried I was going to damage the hamster but I did manage in the end.
It is simple to operate press the nose for various sounds or the head or press it back and put it on the floor to get it to run around. I feel the manufactors claims of them been realistic is slightly miss leading have you ever heard a hamster moo or sound like a car horn well Num Nums does. It is very random but my son loves it.
He is chuffed to bits with Num Nums he follows him, laughs at the noises and uses his imagination creating tunnels for him to go through with his legs. It is very amusing to watch the hamster run over to my baby son on the floor he laughs and laughs at this crazy hamster. Over all it is fun I wont bother trying to get hold of the other bits which seems almost impossible at the moment. Hopefully in the new year stock will arrive and I'll see if my son is still showing any interest in the hamster by then. As an adult I feel even at the RRP price it is over priced so I feel so sorry for anyone who has paid silly money for them.
They are fun and have some advantages over real hamsters as they don't poo, need cleaning out or die.
