Hamusuta Hamster

Lil Find: Hamusuta

Like man, every child needs a best friend. But right now having a pet dog isn't an option in my home. And, before I go out and buy my daughter an animal of appropriate size, I'm thinking about spending $12 for a Hamusuta.

Hamusuta the Happy Hamster runs inside (or outside) his exercise ball with a realistic rodent scurry. I can hardly wait to get one to see my wee one's reaction. And there's no food or poop scooping required — just three AAA batteries! I think Hamusuta might become my best friend.

Does anyone else have an "alternative" pet?

I have one of these and my jack russell terrier goes nuts over it. He bats it around and whines. :)

One of my daughter's friends has a animatronic cat that is creepy real. It purrs, blinks it's eyes, tilts its head, screeches if you pull its tail etc.

My daughter would love this (and it would give the dogs a break from her)

If I wasn't so repulsed by rodents, I'd love this.

I actually have one of these and she was my class' honorary pet last year (I was teaching Kindergarten at the time.) They kids loved her and named her after the new baby elephant at the St. Louis Zoo. Very fun and CLEAN :o)
