Russ Hornsby designed the ZhuZhu Pets for his St. Louis-based firm, Cepia LLC, which he founded in 2008. The name is derived from the Mandarin word zhzhi (Chinese: ), which literally translates as "little pig." Cepia had just 16 employees in the United States and 30 employees in China as of late 2009.

Nine distinct characters, with names such as Chunk, PipSqueak, Mr. Squiggles, and Num Nums, comprise the original ZhuZhu Pets. There are a variety of accessories available to help you create a unique hamster environment. There are two different play modes for ZhuZhu Pets: "nurturing mode," in which they coo and purr, and "adventure mode," in which they explore their environment and react to various stimuli.

During the 2009 Christmas season, ZhuZhu Pets were all the rage. They were originally sold for $9 USD, but due to a shortage, they were forced to sell for more than $100 for a period of time.
