How to Do the Hamster Dance

Have you ever wished to dance like a hamster? It sounds funny but there is a proper Hamster Dance that is equally famous among kids and adults. It is also called the “Hamster Dance.” It was basically put up by an intelligent Canadian arts student Deidre LaCarte from a Geocities page. This wonderful dance consists of few rows of animated (energetic) hamsters along with another group of rodents, boogieing in a variety of moves to a sped-up sample from Roger Miller’s song “Whistle Stop.” It then took no time in touching the skies and became famous all over the globe.

Doing the ‘Hamster Dance’ is not only easy and fun, but a terrific activity to keep your body in shape. Hamster Dance’s hilarious moments make it an entertaining activity for children, keeping them engaged for a long time.

Zhu-zhu pets Interactive hamster - "The pet is still not real, but cheerful"

Good day everyone!

My daughter was presented with an interactive hamster, as she had long wanted just such a pet. We already have a mouse with a remote control, but we wanted an independent animal. Kitten and rabbit from Fix Price quickly fell into disrepair, although the alternative is excellent.

Zhu zhu pets 21300-1 are hamsters - the heroes of the popular cartoon "Zhuzhiki".

In Russia, these charming rodents became known only recently, in April 2017. However, this did not prevent them from becoming the favorites of millions of kids from all over our vast country in a short time. According to the plot, a kind and helpful girl named Frankie is friends with 4 talking hamsters. Pipsquik, Mr. Squiggles, Num Nums, Chunk - that's the name of her furry comrades

We got Chunk - a hamster with blue fur and a sun on his back.

It is this sun that serves as the pet's activation button. And in order to properly understand everything and find out how the hamster comes to life and what it can do, there is an instruction with images in the kit.

And this is how the "legs" of the animal look like.

The batteries are already installed, but the instructions tell you how to install them correctly.

The functions of the interactive hamster are quite complex, making it look like a living hamster (except for the wild colors).

The hamster can run and squeak and make various other sounds at the same time. I read somewhere that there are 60 of them, but I counted only a dozen. I was especially surprised by the sound of the car signal and the whistle of the locomotive. And the squeak is really cute.

Pet changes direction when it encounters an obstacle. He can also just stop and win back or turn to the side. In this mode, the hamster can move for 4 minutes, after which it will stop if it is not turned off by pressing a button. Also, the hamster can be stopped by turning on its side. At the same time, he may continue to make sounds for some time.

The hamster also has 2 functions - petting and dancing. The hamster has a funny tuft in which a button is hidden.

Press and the pet makes a sound, again - a new sound. Imitation of stroking.

Everything turned out to be more difficult with dancing. In order for the melody to sound and the hamster to start moving under it and spinning, you need to press and hold the power button on the back. The child cannot function. When you press the button, the hamster starts to run and you need to keep him from escaping and continue to hold the button.

Only 2 melodies for the dance. After the dance, the hamster is in a hurry to go somewhere again. But dancing is fun.


On the first day, when they brought home, they played continuously for several hours, and even lay down to sleep next to each other. But I removed it from the room so as not to start squeaking in the middle of the night.

Runs funny, sometimes jumps a little and tries to climb walls. It's interesting to watch. You can roll small stable figures. We don’t have tracks and wheels, we launched it along a plastic chute from the track - it runs. Generally very passable, runs on the carpet, on the sofa.

Over time, the toy has become less interesting, but occasionally turns on and plays.

Quite an interesting toy for a child dreaming of a pet. But this is not a replacement or training. Just an opportunity to play for time before buying a live pet.

Why don't elephants dance, or will the hamster break?

Perhaps you have never asked yourself these questions. But a scientific institution called the Royal Institution of Great Britain still has an answer to them.

Have you ever wondered why they never show elephants tap-dancing in the African savannas or dancing tango in Thailand, even on TV? Meanwhile, this is one of the issues that this year's traditional Christmas lectures of the Royal Institute are devoted to.

Such lectures have been held by the Institute since 1825. And this year, their organizers - among many problems - wondered how much the size affects the behavior of animals.

Specially for the BBC this year's lecturer, Dr. Mark Miodownick, a physicist from the respected King's College London, has decided to answer questions you probably haven't thought of asking yourself yet. But if you suddenly want to do this, you will already have a ready answer.

Why can't elephants dance?

These giants are very charming. But on TV shows like Dancing with the Stars, they won't last long.

The African Elephant is the largest animal living on earth today. Despite its size, it can run at a speed of 40 km/h. However, his legs are too heavy, so that the elephant is not able to quickly change direction. It turns out that graceful steps are beyond his power.

For the same reason, elephants can't jump, so pirouettes aren't up to them either.

Can a hamster escape from an airplane?

No parachute needed!

The size of an animal determines its chances of surviving a fall from an airplane or skyscraper.

Smaller creatures fall to the ground with a force proportionally less than their weight.

Therefore, a fall from an airplane is fatal for a person. However, a hamster - like, for example, a spider - will not even feel the blow.

Is an ant really stronger than a weightlifter?

Until now, ants have not managed to win a single Olympic medal, but in relation to their size they are indeed extremely strong creatures.

The strongest ants are able to lift 100 times their own weight. In terms of human capabilities, this can be compared to a weightlifter lifting an African elephant. In fact, an Olympic weightlifter is able to lift twice as much weight as his own.

The reason is that ants are so light that they use very little muscle power to support themselves, leaving the rest to lift weights. Well, the larger the insect or animal, the weaker it is - in proportion, of course.

Can a person walk on walls?

Based on the gecko's paws, which have the smallest hairs that allow lizards to run along vertical walls, scientists have created a special coating, which they called the gecko film.

Thanks to the hairs, the gecko's paws greatly increase the area of ​​contact with the surface, creating the so-called van der Waals forces (after the Dutch physicist who discovered them). These forces are sufficient to ensure that the surfaces seem to stick to each other.

Now scientists are already working on the creation of gloves that will "stick" to glass. In theory, this should allow ordinary people to crawl on walls, and astronauts to reliably grab the things they need in space.

Can the TV repair itself?

Imagine electronics that heal themselves. No more calling electricians, no more lugging your favorite appliances to the shop...

A self-correcting TV sounds fantastic, but materials with the ability to self-assemble (or repair themselves) have already been discovered.

For example, an epoxy surface can be regenerated when cut. In the same way, at the site of a cut, a special film forms on living skin, which then disappears. So in the foreseeable future, it may well happen that your TV, having broken down, will take and fix itself.

Is it possible to build an elevator to the moon?

What was that?

We quickly, simply and clearly explain what happened, why it's important and what's next.


The End of the Story Podcast

Writer Roald Dahl has already sent an elevator into space (in his children's book "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator"), but for this to actually happen, you will have to build a tower more than 380 thousand kilometers high .

This requires a material that is both extremely strong and incredibly light. Today's cement, steel and aluminum are completely unsuitable for this: they are too heavy, and the force of gravity will inevitably bring down this structure.

Even carbon fiber, the strongest and lightest material we use today, can build a tower no taller than 9 kilometers.

But recently new carbon-based materials have been discovered that are incredibly strong and light.
