Right now, there are four different characters to choose from. With the popularity of this new toy though, it is hard to imagine that they will not be adding more characters in the very near future. Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters seem to be taking on a life of their own and with Christmas less than two months away, the popularity of this sudden sensation is only going to grow.

Chunk is one of the funnier ones of the bunch and is loaded with personality. If you get the whole set or only end up buying just Chunk, the surfboard accessory is a must. You can put him on his board and let him ride the table waves until the surf goes flat. When the day is over, it is almost expected to see him sit back and say, "chill dude."

Pipsqueak is just as mischievous as Chunk, but a little more petite. If you think she is going to stand down to anyone, you are sadly mistaken. Loaded with personality, she is just as rambunctious as a real hamster would be, but at least she can be put in loving mode and to let her settle down.

Not all of the Zhu Zhu Pets are looking for trouble though. Numnums and Squiggles are a little easier on the nerves and are more about the home life. Squiggles still wants to get out and about, but has seen it all and needs something of a challenge to get him motivated. Numnums is perfectly content to be held and hugged.

As you can see, there is a personality for everyone. To see them at their best though, there is nothing like the four of them together. It's like The Odd Couple meets Laverne and Shirley. The whole family cannot help but have fun with Zhu Zhu Pets.
