Earlier this week, we received a "Flat Stanley" from a little friend in the U.S. (one of those cut out paper dolls that travels around the world & is photographed in various places).

My daughter (age 6) wants to do something similar with Zhu Zhu pets, one of her current "passions." Here is what she requested on my Facebook page:

"This is Sphinx. Please take a picture with your Zhu Zhu pet and tell me where you live. I am going to make a world map with all of the Zhu Zhus on it to share on my news day at school."

So...if any of the kids in EB Land have a Zhu Zhu and wouldn't mind sharing a picture (and geographic location), my daughter would be delighted to receive them either on this thread or via PM.

I promise that these pics will go no further than Mrs. G's Grade One class in suburban Sydney!

Thanks so much,

(Zhu Zhu Pet Stage Mother)

Will try to get onto it today (if we can catch the little critters! We have a pile of Zhu Zhu puppies and guinea pigs and when they hit our big tiled floor area they scatter!)

laughing2.gif R2, your photo made me laugh because my daughter also did poses with the zhu zhu on her head AND on her shoulder (except she went cross eyed in those ones).

You need to upload it to a hosting site like Photobucket or Flicker.  You then copy the IMG code and paste it into a post.

Try and resize it though before you upload it or it will end up massive (mind you that doesnt always work )


Posted 25 February 2012 - 04:43 PM

I so wish we had a ZhuZhu pet so we could add to your collection of photo's! They're all so darn cute!

Would love to see a pic of the map when it's done original.gif
