Check out this site GoGrabber.com, it's saving my procrastinating butt! lol
I know other mom's are having trouble finding them, so I wanted to let everybody know how I got one.
I've seen some posts from Moms that are wating outside Toys R Us for new shipments to try and get one, but frankly, I live in New England and it's COLD at five AM!! I wanted to buy from Amazon.com because they have free shipping on like, everything, but the only ones they had were being sold (at WAY marked up prices) by third parties.
HOWEVER, one of my girlfriends told me about gograbber.com, which is a free website that will "watch" items for you on Amazon and let you know when amazon has them in stock at regular retail price. It was so awesome! I was just doing the dishes, I heard the gograbber alarm go off on my PC, hopped on and bought the zhu zhu pet! It worked so well I now have gograbber watching a whole bunch of stuff for me! Lol! Good luck everybody!
I bought DD's a few months ago because I knew I wouldn't be able to find them at Christmas. Just a little warning though for all you mommas that bought them for your kids...DON'T let your kids get them near their hair!!! Yesterday my DD was hollering for help and when I got in the kitchen her hamster was stuck in her hair and there was no getting it unstuck...bye bye chunk of hair...and right before Christmas pictures to, DARN!
I found a site similar to gograbber, it's called zoolert.com This place is amazing!! It has trackers for all the hot toys, I was able to get a starter set w/ patches from shopko.com for 30 bucks!! In fact shopko.com has the starter set still in stock right now. But, seriously zoolert.com is a great place to find the hot toys!
