Xia-Xia Pets -- Review & Giveaway


***CLOSED***CLOSED***CLOSED***

Congrats to random comment #45!





Have you seen these cute little crabs???



If not...then meet the Xia-Xia Pets (pronounced Sha-Sha)
from the makers of DaGeDar and Zhu Zhu Pets.



These new colorful, collectible creatures combine the loveable charm
of a real hermit crab but add a twist of imagination. Each Xia-Xia comes
with a candy colored shell in which kids can fi­nd a little friend hidden
inside. Additional shells can be purchased so children can style their
Xia-Xia in their favorite fashions. For an added bonus, each additional
shell contains two little friends. Xia-Xia have colorful playsets, bringing
alive a world of color, magic, and imagination for kids to enjoy!



We recently received one each of the cute little crabs, some 
extra shells and three fun playsets.  They really are too cute,
and kept us giggling as they scooted around their "habitats".
And, tho, they appear fragile, they can certainly handle the 
fingers of a 3-year old, plus the occasional fall.  Love that!


The tiny friends that come in the shells were a big bonus
for my kids, too.  And, I personally, loved the packaging
for the crabs and shells.

These fun pets are predicted to be a big seller during the
holidays, so I'm really happy to announce that I have one
crab and shell to give away!  Wanna win them?



Just leave a comment below telling me what you
like best about this new toy.  That's it!  Oh, and
if you're a follower, you can get a second entry.
(Please leave a second comment.)



***This giveaway will end at 9PM on October 31st.***

Let me tell you what I like best bout this today - I love that really act like hermit crabs with out all the mess and feeding of REAL live Hermit Crabs.

Seems my Hannah adores hermit crabs and well the real live ones do not thrive well at our house. :( I wonder if this may fix her hermit crab bug with out getting more reals ones. ;)

Oh fun. I have not seen those. They are so cute. Boyd would especially love them. He has been asking lately, why do crabs pinch?? I have no idea why he is asking, but it's funny. :)

They are adorable and will keep my little one busy for hours. Trinidad is my fav. I am liking the fact that they are not REAL. :)
