Zhu Zhu Pets Big Hit on Cyber Monday


It's a good time to be an owner/investor in the St. Louis-based toy company Cepia LLC.

Internet searches for the company's Zhu Zhu Pets is off the charts today -- Cyber Monday -- the biggest online shopping day of the year.

By late this morning Google labeled Zhu Zhu Pets as "on fire" after thousands of users punched the toy's name into the search engine, making it the fourth-most searched phrase today.  

Now the bad news for parents and even the folks at Cepia LLC: the toys are out of stock everywhere.

So kiddies, how 'bout a Cabbage Patch Kid, instead? Those, too, were insanely popular. Once upon a time.
