Seriously. I own Tamagotchis, Digimon, Neopets, Scoozies, Furbies, Nano pets and this is by far the worst virtual pet I have ever purchased, and where I got it it was three bucks!
They reuse the graphics for multiple pets, they reset spontaneously, but the worst feature is that they appear to run on their own clock. I tried keeping my little bat alive for more than a day but it would go through a cycle of sleeping and waking up every FOUR HOURS! Every time I had to sleep it would die from lack of food, or sitting in its own filth!
Finally after the thing reset itself in my political sciences class and wouldn't stop beeping, I got wise to the little hellspawn and scrapped it for the batteries! BTW if you find a three pack of these for $5 it's actually much cheaper than buying the batteries by themselves. I used them to power my Micropet which is a much better use for them!
Avoid at all costs!
You how they say ... Nothing better than the Original ? Well, for this Virtual Pet keychain I would say that quote applies. I purchased a Three(3) pack from a Big Lots for $5 and I thought it might be fun to play with since my Tamagotchi collection all need NEW Batteries. But after 1 day of playing with this Virtual Pet I got sick of it. It's Life span isn't very long. You cant put it down for a few hours and expect it to be alive the next time you pick it up cuz this virtual pet dies easily and definitely requires like 24-7 around the clock attention. It's constantly beeping for something whether it's Poo clean-up or just plain attention. Tamagotchi's are relatively quiet and only beep when they need to. I would say for the same price as this ... just go out and get yourself a v4.5 Tamagotchi or even an older version the v.3 or v.4 ! Dont waste your money on this replica.
First of all, your not getting 49 pets as indicated on the package. Your only getting 36. They reuse the same graphic for supposedly different pets. Here are a few examples of the pets included: (these all use the same graphic) monkey/gorilla/chimpanzee/baboon rat/mouse lion(I suppose they mean sea lion)/seal/sea otter donkey/horse/mule sheep/lamb Oh and this is one my favorites - fish/goldfish What? I felt a bit cheated. Not to mention that they seem to spontaneously reset often. I bought the three pack at oddlots for 5 bucks and all three had this problem. There's nothing more frustrating than taking care of one of these pets for three days only to have it reset and have to start all over again. Other than that they get boring quick as the pets never do much and the games you play with them are a joke. I eventually just pirated the batterys and threw the units away. Do me a favor, if you still wish to try buy one of these, don't over pay for it.
