ZhuZhu Pets (Mandarin pronunciation: [tʂú tʂú], formerly known as Go Go Pets in the UK) is an American line of plush robotic hamster toys created by Cepia LLC in 2008.
History with the Macy's Parade
In 2011, the ZhuZhu Pets debuted their float in the Macy's Parade, called the "Zhu-niverse" float, which was used to promote their first-ever CGI animated movie, The Quest for Zhu. The float featured a giant inflatable "Zhu-nivere", which showcased the many adventures that took place in the movie. One of the most unique features of this float is its use of a slide. Throughout the Parade, many kids dressed as hamsters would slide down this colorful pink slide. It also featured giant statues of the film's characters, such as Pipsqueak, Mr. Squiggles, Chunks & NumNum. At the front of the float, a blue swirl-like area was set for the float's performer. This float was retired after the 2013 Parade.
