Apparently, Cyber Monday is all about the Zhu Zhu Pets. The Zhu Zhu what, you say?
A Zhu Zhu Pet is an electronic hamster. Yep, that funny looking thing right there. According to the website, a Zhu Zhu Pet is an interactive pet with over 40 sounds (and of course plenty of accesories to go with it).
Kids have gone Zhu Zhu crazy. The Zhu Zhu Pets even had their own Twitter Party a few weeks ago.
I think you know how this story goes -- the Zhu Zhu Pets are now basically impossible to find and parents are getting crazy.
But this year, moms and dads aren't waiting in long lines outside of Toys R Us and WalMart stores -- the battle for Zhu Zhu Pets seems to be taking place online. There is even a Zhu Zhu Pet tracker site that alerts frantic parents when this popular little hamster becomes available.
So live it up Zhu Zhu Pets -- today is your big day. I hate to tell you this -- but in just a few short months, you'll be forgotten in a toy box. And not too long after that no one will be tracking your availability or paying three times your normal price.
Don't believe me? Just ask those now-ancient Cabbage Patch Kids.
Here is a look at the Zhu Zhu Pets and their many accessories as well as popular toys from holiday seasons past.
