Xia Xia Pets Review and Giveaway – CLOSED

I am so excited to tell you about Xia Xia Pets a new line of colorful hermit crab toys by Cepia the same company who brought us the Zhu Zhu Pets. These new collectible toys are already on the Hot Holiday Toys for 2011 list.

I was recently given the opportunity to check out these little Robotic Hermit Crab toys and I am going to tell you all about them and even give you an opportunity to win one.  How cool is that?

Let me start by telling you what they are. Xia Xia (pronounced Shah-Shah, rhymes with Cha-Cha) consists of four colorful, collectible hermit crabs that love to dance and play.

Each one comes with a removable shell and a little friend inside it. Just like real Hermit Crabs you can change their shells. The shells easily come off and can be replaced with one of the 12 collectible shells you can purchase in many fun colors and designs . Each one of the additional collectible shells contains two little friends!

With me so far?

Here is the Xia Xia Crew there is Bimini, Tobago, Trinidad and Turks. I have a feeling if these take off there will be many more in the near future, but for now there are 4 Crabs to start.  The Xia Xia Pets have a switch to turn them on on the bottom and when you press its claw it will Skitter around. They kinda remind me of the Zhu Zhu Pets the way they move around.

Here is a look at some of the other Xia Xia Shells that are available. Each one is completely different and some even sparkle. Remember inside of these are 2 little friends that can be taken out to play with.

Of course these Xia Xia Pets need somewhere to play right? Currently there are three different habitat playsets available – The Xia-Xia Rio de Trio Village Playset, Xia-Xia Confetti Cottage Play Set and the Xia-Xia Copacabana Playset.

You can find the Xia Xia Toys in stores and also online here at Amazon.

Here are some pictures of our hands on review. The girls thought these were very cute and I think what they liked the best was changing the shells and the little friends that come inside. My BIGGEST concern was the size of the little friends – they are TINY.  I think these are a major chocking hazard if you have younger ones in the house and I can see them being lost easily if not stored well – so keep that in mind.

While these did not hold the interest long for the older girls, my youngest tester loved them and got to take them all home to play with later.

I think these will be a hit with the younger kids and they will love to play, collect and change the shells. They are also fun to watch skitter around in the playsets and on the floor. I also personally like all the bright fun colors of these toys and the little friends (even though they are TINY) they are really adorable and fun ( I kept a few of them for myself – Shhhhh -lol).

Now onto the Giveaway Deets !!
