If you have been a follower of ToBeThode for awhile, you know how much we have grown to love Zhu Zhu Pets, the Happy’s, and all things Cepia, LLC. I was even given a chance for a few years to give the gift of Zhu to local charities. My kids play with them all the time. So, when I found out Cepia, LLC came out with a new product, I had to know more. I couldn’t wait to see what The Amazing Zhus were all about!
We received the products mentioned for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are those of my family and in no way compensated.
The Amazing Zhus showed up on our doorstep one afternoon. My husband and I dug into the box while the kids were busy (don’t judge) and I was so excited to get everything out. My problem was this…
I thought “holy cow… this may take awhile”… and set it aside when I knew I would have more time. I couldn’t have been more wrong though. What you see above is the Amazing Zhus High Dive and, while it looks intimidating, it really wasn’t. I took a few minutes to set it up when it was just Jemma at home and was surprised to have it up and ready in less than 5 minutes.
So, what are the Amazing Zhus?
The Amazing Zhus™ Magician Pets are motorized pets that will amaze your friends as they perform magic tricks and gravity-defying stunts. The Amazing Zhus™ Magician Pets can correctly guess the answers to the Magician’s Cards – without even looking, follow the Magic Wand wherever you lead them, or predict the pea’s location in the Shell Game trick – every time. They even magically find their own way home to the Magician Houses! These talented pets can also perform stunts – including the High Dive and High Wire acts as well as the disappearing box!
The Amazing Zhus™ Stunt Pets perform astounding acrobatics and gravity defying stunts! They can plunge over 3 feet from the High Dive into a bucket below, brave a Tightrope, run around on Circus Balls, and vanish in a Disappearing Box!
I think the fact that this little Zhu (similar to those my kids have loved for years) was doing stunts was enough to get them excited. But, when they saw that the High Dive was 30 inches tall, they were speechless (and that is quite a feat for my kids). They couldn’t believe that the Amazing Zhu would be able to go all the way down the track without falling off.

We received a Stunt Pet, name Dynamo and the kids loved him from the beginning. These don’t have the fur that the Zhu Zhu Pets had and instead. They have two buttons that perform different ways.
The Disappearing Box Trick was a bit advanced for Jemma but she did have fun with it. Johnny and Joley did really like to perform “magic” with the Amazing Zhu though. Basically, it is a trick box and the directions are simple for kids to figure out.
The Amazing Zhu makes an adorable “ta da” sound after it comes out of the box and the kids thought that was hilarious.
