Introducing Xia-Xia

Meet my personal favorite Xia-Xia.  What is a Xia-Xia? The most perfect answer to the never ending query "Mom can I have a pet?".  Xia-Xia are Hermit Crabs.  They were created by Cepia, LLC (the master mind behind ZhuZhu Pets® and DaGeDar™) and I think they are destined to be at the top of many holiday wish lists.

A Little Bit More About Xia-Xia:
From a far away land where the Carnivale runs all day, Xia-Xia are crazy crustaceans, who love to dance and play. Costumed in wild and wacky shell fashions, Xia-Xia love to change their shells for their festivities. Press their claw and the parade begins; Xia-Xia have a wacky Xia-Xia shuffle that is tons of fun to watch.

These new colorful, collectible creatures combine the loveable charm of a real hermit crab but add a twist of imagination. Each Xia-Xia comes with a candy colored shell in which kids can fi­nd a little friend hidden inside. Additional shells can be purchased so children can style their Xia-Xia in their favorite fashions. For an added bonus, each additional shell contains two little friends. Xia-Xia have colorful playsets, bringing alive a world of color, magic, and imagination for kids to enjoy!

What Did The Kids Think?
  • They all loved the packaging! 
  • Emma played with one for three hours Friday night and brought Crabbie to bed with her.  She played for two hours on Saturday Morning and partied with her friends for almost 3 hours.  She took her crab and the playscapes with to share on another playdate. 
  • Her crab has survived! And she keeps telling me how beautiful Crabbie is. 
  • All of the kids were easily entertained for hours at our Xia-Xia playdate.  No one pouted, tattled, or had a melt down.  Everyone was tired and slept well (most with their new Xia-Xia pal!)
What Did The Moms Think About Xia-Xia?
  • We all loved the fact that we could relax, chit-chat, and enjoy the play date.  The toys did the entertaining! Three Cheers for Xia-Xia!!
  • We all loved the boutique/handbag packaging!  Very cool!
  • They are just adorable and we all agree just looking at them made us smile.
  • Our only complaint is that a few of them needed minor surgery (large front claw popped off of two of them a time or two).  They did snap back together fairly easily and all of them continue to tolerate lots of play time.
  • The Play Sets have been very durable and they are easy to assemble.  
  • Baby Claire was entertained watching the big kids play with their crabs, extra shells and tiny creatures! 

I have a lot more to share about Xia-Xia, but for tonight I will end with a contest!  One lucky reader will win one Xia-Xia and one Accessory Pack (extra shell with two creatures).  I will select a random winner Monday October 24th at noon!  Good Luck!!
