From Cabbage Patch Kids to Tickle Me Elmo, there's always one "it" toy of the holiday season. Desperate to please their youngsters, some parents contemplate breaking the budget or throwing elbows to get the coveted toys. The hot item of 2009? The Zhu Zhu Pets. Topping the list of many boys and girls, these hyper-popular electronic hamsters normally retail for around $10 but the craze is causing their price to sky rocket.
