Product Review and Giveaway: Go Go Pets!

My girls, Rachie (4) and Alli Cat (3), were so excited when I opened the box sent to us by Maria Bailey at Mom Select. Inside were all the parts needed to create a hamster wonderland. Real hamsters? No… Go Go Pets! All the fun of hamsters with no mess!

At first I was a bit overwhelmed with the task that lay before me in assembling our test toys. But as each section was assembled, the girls were getting more and more excited to try it out. By the time I finished… I was excited too!

The Go Go Pets Hamsters make the cutest sounds as they scuttle around their home of tubes and slides and wheels. Their sounds seem to correspond with the area of the house that they are in. For instance, in the bedroom area the Go Go Pet seems to pause on the bed and then an alarm clock rings. It makes my girls giggle and scream “wake up”!

I admit… I was having fun watching the Go Go Pet do his tricks. It moves around the house unassisted and plays with the various toy attachments. My favorite to watch is the hamster wheel. It climbs in and runs around and around before coming to a stop and climbing off all by itself!

I found that using the Go Go Pets on a hard surface, such as my kitchen floor worked best for when the hamsters came down the slide or took a drive in their cars. The set will work on level carpet too, but you may have some issues with the Go Go Pet rolling properly if you have an attachment that allows your pet to escape, such as the car.

All in all.. we love our Go Go Pets. My girls have played with it daily and we’ve had it over a week now. It’s just like watching a real hamster, but there’s no feeding or cleaning up!
