Kung Zhu Madness!


Can you believe all that stuff? It arrived on our doorstep yesterday. And it was FREE!!!


Have you heard of “word of mouth” marketing? I’m a big fan of it – basically companies will send you free stuff just to try out and spread the word. Sometimes they’ll even send stuff for your friends, too! That’s the case with the Kung Zhu Pets. We were sent the entire product line plus a bunch of Kung Zhu Pets to share! We’re going to have a Kung Zhu party and our friends will be able to take home one of these cute toys for themselves!! Kung Zhus are the newest hu Zhu electronic hamsters but with a twist – they come with battle gear and have lots of training arenas and vehicles. There are four types of Kung Zhus: Special Forces, Ninja Warriors, Rangers, and Skull Tribe Battle Hamsters. Jamie and Richie are over the moon! They love their Zhu Zhu pets but they really love these Kung Zhus!


Stonewall is in his battle gear on the right – that’s his Buzzsaw Tank on the left. Cute! Awesome!

I will post more in the future about word of mouth marketing, including my favorite programs. For now, visit – that is the site where I registered to host a Kung Zhu party!

MomSelect offered the option of hosting a Kung Zhu party (which I chose) or blog giveaways.  Here are a few blogs I found that are offering Kung Zhu giveaways:
