Zhu-niverse Tour this weekend! (9/17-9/19) & $5/$25 TRU coupon


In early July, I blogged about the Zhu-niverse Tour coming to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in late September. That time is now here!

This has become “Zhu Zhu Pet” week in our house.

We kicked it off on Sunday with a combined Zhu Zhu Pet Wild Bunch Prankster Party and Zhu Zhu Flo Dance Party where several children and their moms decorated outfits for their new Wild Bunch pets… Sweetie the Bunny, Rocco the Raccoon, Stinker the Skunk and Zuzu the Hedgehog.

Most of the girls were drawn to Sweetie the Bunny, but my daughter selected Stinker! She had a difficult time choosing just one, but decided that Stinker was her favorite. They are all cute, but I am partial to Zuzu.



Here are some of Zhu Zhu pets in their new outfits:

I made little “base outfits” in white, blue and pink that the kids decorated with fabric, jewels, paint, ribbon and more as well as hats and skirts, as modeled below by my daughter’s Kung Zhu Seargent Serge!



This is my daughter’s own design, which is fun to look at when the Rock’O is spinning in circles!

Zhu Zhu Pets sell outfits, but my daughter really got into making her own! It was a fun craft project that we plan to do again.

At the party, we also played a few games, including “leaving their mark” – a hide and seek game where the kids drew Zhu Zhu Pets Wild Bunch birthmarks with chalk as clues.

The kids followed the birthmarks to find the hidden Zhu Zhu pet posters (the playground was still wet from the storms we had last week, so I didn’t want to hide actual toys for fear they’d get muddy!

We learned the Zhu Zhu Flo Dance that we will perform at the Zhu-niverse Tour stop at Grapefest this weekend!

Zhu-niverse Tour at Grapefest

Everything I’ve read about the Zhu-niverse Tour on various blogs makes it sound like a lot of fun. We’re looking forward to it!

You can visit the Zhu-inverse area at Grapefest for FREE until 5PM on Friday, otherwise you must buy Grapefest tickets to gain access this weekend. Tickets are $8/adult and $5/child (6 and older). Children 5 and under are free.

Zhu-niverse Tour Stop at Toys ‘R Us in Irving

If you can’t make it to Grapefest, there’s an indoor version of the tour that is going to be at Toys ‘R Us in Irving (7730 N Macarthur Blvd) on Thursday, September 16 from 12-5PM. And it will be air-conditioned and free!

If your child loves Zhu Zhu Pets, either of these events would be a fun outing!

I also received a $20 gift card to Pizza Hut to supply pizza to the party attendees as well as a Kung Zhu hamster for including the Zhu Zhu Flo Dance at the Prankster Party. I also received 10 free tickets to Grapefest to take a group to the Zhu-niverse Tour to perform the Zhu Zhu Flo Dance and enjoy the tour stop. And finally I received a $25 gift card to Toys ‘R Us for registering to attend the Toys ‘R Us event in Irving on 9/16. My daughter LOVES Zhu Zhu pets, so this has been a fun week!
