Remember at Christmas (2009) well Zhu Zhu pets were the hottest thing on the market at Christmas. Well it seams that quite a few are dying and the little wheels are no longer moving.

zhuzhu zhu zhu pets broken toys how to fix

Ok so if your child is left looking sad with a broken Zhu Zhu pet then there is a possible fix for it.

  • Unscrew the battery access screw.
  • If the batteries are good, check the two metal contacts on the motor unit.
  • If those contacts are not perfectly aligned with the battery tray, the motor wont get power, and won't run.
  • Try bending the contacts on the motor unit and battery tray very gently, so that they make good contact.

If that doesn't work they if you have your receipt then you can take it back to the store in most cases. If you can't find your receipt then you can contact the manufacture zhuzhupets.com

Hmmm, a post about fixing a broken pet hamster directly after a post about a gay superbowl. I'm sensing a theme.

Re: How To Fix A Broken Zhu Zhu Pet Hamster

If you can hear the motor turning, but the wheels no longer move, it's most likely a broken gear box. I just dis-assembled the gear box in one of ours that broke and found that the smallest of the three gears inside was broken in several pieces. Each of the gears is critical to making the wheels turn.

I've e-mailed the company to see if they will do anything directly (like ship me just a replacement gear box) or maybe a new motor/gearbox assembly. If nothing else, at least they know about this problem.

Teaches parents who camped out for these that you get what you pay for. Do you flush it when its dead?

Nope if it wasn't in the store then I didn't get it. Besides her mom can camp out with the crazies since she is one also. There are some advantages to being divorced.
