Did we need to road test them? Not really, because we already know that we love Zhu Zhu Pets. But it was good to try out some new play sets.
We've got a small family of Zhu Zhu Pets and have on numerous occasions introduced them to other families in the form of birthday presents.
They are cute and the interactive side of them just makes them so much more fun to play with. And age is not a barrier, you're never really too young or too old for a Zhu Zhu pet. And in our otherwise pet free home this is as good as it's going to get.
For the rest of this month Hunter Products have an awesome promotion going on. You can get $110 Zhu Zhu Puppies Play Pack for just $35 + postage (flat rate of $12)

Now onto books. I'm not the best reader, not that I can't read, but more so that I don't. One of my new years resolutions was to read books in 2012.
Knowing that reading a book is not my strong point, it's extremely important to me, to positively steer my children toward books. I want them to love books and love reading. Despite the fact that I struggle to find time, I do understand the importance and joy a good book can bring.
Recently I was given a Billie B. Brown book from Hardie Grant Egmont.
She is a character created for girls, who are keen to read and are looking for something bold and exciting.
The author Sally Rippin states children will recognise their own lives reflected in Billie's 'real world' adventures of having a sleep-over, playing soccer, learning ballet and more.
This statement couldn't be more true.
We read Billie B. Brown The Soccer Star.
Lulu has only just started school this year and is only now learning to read. So she is probably not quite ready for this book. That said I thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce her to 'chapter books' encouraging her to pick it up each night and read the next chapter.
More fool me. She would not have a bar of this 'putting it down' business I talked of.
Never mind, we managed to get through the whole book as well as discussion in about half an hour.
We've now put it up high on the book shelf where it will be re-read when the time is right.
From a parents perspective I thought the book was great, I loved the story line, the characters and the length of the story itself. There was nothing offensive and the target age group of 'first chapter book readers' is perfect.
