I found this pet on ebay, http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item3a5f8abf90

It looked like it would be cute and fun, but it isn't. It's one of those really cheap pets that resets if you press a button too hard. I'm going to try it with stronger batteries, but my hopes aren't high. I have a feeling this one will be gutted for parts.

But at that price, it's worth a a try. Sometimes I have had to get more than one of a pet to get one that works. Sometimes it's worth the trouble, sometimes not.

Correction, I gave it another try because I was going to gut it for parts, and it came to life for me, and seems stable. I put it on my carabiner clip with the rest of my working tamas and rattle tested it as well as drop tested it. So far, so good.

It seems to follow the growth pattern of tamas. It starts out as a little tadpole and needs lots of care for an hour. It takes a nap partway through. It makes interesting sounds to signal evolution and it becomes a larger tadpole. The game is the left/right game from a P1 tama, and one odd thing about this pet is that it's missing the food icon. It's in the same spot as on a P1, but there's no picture there.
