I have seen the commercial a hundred times... and have heard my niece ask a thousand times for one...

How hard do you think they will be to find this November/December?

4 of the stores I called are already out of them... and taking pre-orders for early December.

don't know, saw the commercial too and was wondering if they would be a BF item, maybe a special packageing, we will just have to wait and see.....they are little hamster things that run around like real ones and have all kinds of accessories

Well Walmart does not have them online, TRUS is sold out already, Target had pre-order but the shipping was $36 for my order so I did not do it. Amazon has crazy pricing as well.

I found them at my Walmart. They had the individual hamsters and a couple of the add ons. I thought I'd better go ahead and at least pick up the hamsters, so it's official, my Christmas shopping has begun.

The race begins. Both my dd-4 and ds-8 have already asked for them. Hopefully I can find them. Please let me know if anyone has seen them in South Fl.

For those whose kids want them, how many will you try to get them? 1 of each or just 1 hamster? I can't decide.

Just found the last one in Walmart.......I was sent on my lunch hour.

It isn't for Christmas. DS8 wanted one to buy with his b-day $. He didn't want anything else. If he really loves it, we will get the accessories for Christmas. I don't want to spend a ton of money now if it doesn't get touched after a month....

It would be helpful if the stores had one on display.

FOr the person who asked the price, they are suppose to retail for $7.99 for the hamsters and $5.99 to $21.99 (or more for the multi pack) for the accessories.

WOW!! Where? We got ours at Walmart. $7.99.

Our TRU sold out within hours. The salespeople commented about Ebay and its prices on these toys already skyrocketing.

It is cute. I'm just wondering how long my son's interest will stay........

I have not found any yet, but if I do I think DD would like the white and grey the best, and then some of the other accessories. I am going to look this weekend. I have relatives looking in Nevada too.

OMG! Never heard of them but checked them out and my kids would LOVE it! In the past really hot, hard to find toys before BF won't be on sale for BF but they will have some stock of them. Good luck to all of us that want some! ;)

I did manage to pre order some through Target. They are out of stock on the individual hamsters now, but if anyone is interested you can preorder the starter house, which comes with one of the hamsters for 19.99 still through Target. It's a little steep for shipping, but still cheaper than ebay.
