I took out one box at a time, so as not to overwhelm. We first opened "Madame Zhu." (Her magic counterpart, "The Great Zhu" is also available.) She comes with a magician's wand, that she obediently follows, and 3 Magician cards. Using RFID and IR technology (no, I don't really know what that means either, but it's cool!) Madame Zhu can "read" the cards and react to what's on them. For example, one is a picture of a cat. Poor little Madame Zhu shrieks in fright and runs to hide. Very cute!
Next we tried the Amazing Zhus High Dive. Tricky to put together (the instructions left out how to attach the running track!), we did eventually figure it out and again, Madame Zhu impressed. She acts afraid at first, inching back and forth a couple of times, and then makes the 30 inch leap.
