Xia-Xia Review & Giveaway

Do you recognize this crab? If your children watch any television, than I bet you do! My kids have been asking for these for awhile - but there not even in stores yet! They're called Xia-Xia (that's shah-shah) and they are hot stuff!

First of all, let me just tell you that they are made by the same company that makes Zhu Zhu pets and those guys know how to make hot toys for kids. Remember how crazy zhu zhu pets were a few Christmas' ago??!!

My kids got one zhu zhu for Christmas that year and it was a miracle that we even had one! And as miracles would go - they got to try the Xia-Xia hermit crabs before they even hit stores.

They loved them. They traded shells back and forth - filled them with little "surprises" and built them houses. They do come with their own playsets like the Cocacobana playset here:
or the confetti cottage playset here:

My kids were not that "into" the playsets. They did use the cottage for storing shells, but they spend so many hours building forts and castles it was just natural to incorporate the Xia-Xa into their usual creations. 

The Xia-Xia are crazy. They are colorful and wild. They dance and skitter about. They can all share shells - they all fit on any crab. And the shells can hold things. That was the biggest draw for my kids. That and the "little friends." They are such little hoarders collectors.

And of course, they brought them on the bus and got everybody jealous. Now moms are calling me wondering where we got them - they've looked everywhere and can't find them. Watch out around the holidays! 

They are due to hit shelves in November, but you have the chance to win (1) Xia-Xia and (1) Shell here! This contest is open to US residents 18 and up. Enter by filling out the form below:
