So long Zhu Zhu Pets. Zibits might be the next "big" thing
moving into your house. The tiny remote control robots, sold at
Toys "R" Us for less than $10 each, were a hit with the kids we had
give them a test run. The remote control is easy to operate and the
sounds and lights from each of the 12 robots add to the fun. For

Iron-Ons, 15 sticky labels, eight shoe labels and two bag tags.
