As the Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters currently available (well when they're not sold out), Chunk, Pipsqueak, Mr Squiggles and Num Nums are becoming very well known. However, there are other little toy hamsters out there waiting for their moment in the spotlight.
The first of these is Patches, the least known member of the Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster clan. Patches is already available, but only as part of the Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster House Starter Set or the Funhouse Set with Hamster. You can't get him via an individual hamster pack or any of the other combo pack. If you really want him, you're going to have to buy one of these sets.
Also, the official Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster blog has said that there are more Hamsters coming:
There are some amazing new characters coming out in the future for everyone to enjoy! You may have seen them on the back of some packaging that is in stores now. There is a great new girl named Jilly, who is sporting some pink and white. There is also a dark brown hamster named Scoodles, a black and white buddy, who goes by the name Winkie, and last but not least, Nugget!
The same post also give a little more information about the new pet hamsters, when talking about their birthmarks (the patterns on their backs):
Jilly has cherries (she is sweet and happy!), Winkie has a footprint (he is a world traveler!), Scoodles has a nut (he loves nuts and being nutty!!), and Nugget has a butterfly (she is a daydreamer and loves chasing butterflies!)
I think I'm going to be a Winkie fan!
Anyway, there are definitely going to be more pet hamsters coming. Counting the current four, plus Patches, plus four new hamsters, that means there will be a total of 9 hamster toys. I wouldn't be surprised if Cephia LLC (the company who make the Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters) were keeping a few more their sleeves as well!
Also, I'd extremely surprised if there weren't some new accessories to come as well. If Cephia have been clever enough to keep some new hamsters up their sleeves, to be released a little closer to Christmas, you can be sure that there will be some super accessories coming as well.
Of course, the logical extension of that is that there'll be some new packs coming out as a result of these new pet hamsters and any new accessories that do materialise. Just what combinations they come up with for their packs is anyone's guess.
Cephia do seem to be very clever marketers, so I'm thinking that there will be some great, must have Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters packs coming out in time for Christmas. Whether the new products actually stay in stock is anyone's guess. I'd recommend try to buy the Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters online.
