The pizza shop is pretty well as pictured - though like all these sets it doesn't actually come with a hamster, but it does come with a rather fancy blue pizza delivery motor delivery vehicle (not pictured) and 5 mini plastic pizzas. The two LR4 batteries required to run the set - they light up the pizza oven- are included. There's a bit of minimal set up when you get it out of the box - the tunnel in front of the parlour has to be slotted onto the front of the shop and the pizza sign put on top. To give you some idea of size the actual shop itself is about 20cm long and 18cm high. The set could be used as a stand alone item but is, clearly going to be more fun if incorporated into a run of hamster track and tunnels.
In play it's quite good fun - even if the idea of pizzas being delivered by hamsters seems a bit strange to an adult, my kids, aged 5 and 8 seem to love it, it's probably their favourite part of their track and was bought new to go with various pieces picked up second hand. When a hamster goes into the tunnel, a little track triggers them to make a noise, depending on which hamster it is, from a "go!" to cheesy Italian music. The hamsters will then go further on along the track and power a conveyor belt which comes out of the pizza oven and will deliver pizzas into the delivery motorbike side car, assuming the child has put the pizzas into the oven via a slot at the back before play. When the child turns a lever the hamster will go on to get into the motorbike and "deliver" the pizzas around the room. This really is as amusing as it sounds.
Though the set isn't of the best construction - it's hard to slot together and the stickers are pretty shabby quality (this is zhu zhu after all), overall it works well and there's no denying its play value. The hamsters don't seem to get stuck in the set too often and more often than not everything works as intended, though we have had a pizza blockage before now, and sometimes the delivery boy will fail to start the bike - which is hamster powered. Yes, the plastic is of a quality you'd expect to find being used to package mushrooms, and you can't help but feel that the designers wanted to torture parents who will find they have to put the set together as there's no way a child could, but it's still a good toy.
Overall I, or more importantly my children, would recommend this set for any zhu zhu fan.
The only slight issue is that you need to have a zhu zhu hamster at the gate with a fair amount of battery power in to make the pizza move along the conveyor belt, but once the girls knew that it wasn't a problem.
They really love the pizza delivery car that comes with this set and it moves really well on our wooden floor.
I would recommend this toy for both girls and boys.
