I just got this pet on eBay (there was only one at the time listed). I can't hardly find any information on this pet.
I was wondering if anyone's seen this pet before or has any information on it. I'm still trying to figure out all of its functions.
If anyone knows where I could find some sort of instructions on this pet that would be super!

It looks like this:

All I know is that Scholtastic doesn't do electronic pets. I'm guessing it's a fake. Can you please post pictures of the packaging? :)

I bought this off eBay and it didn't come with it's original packaging.

Here's the back, to prove it's from Scholastic:

When the pet starts up it actually shows you a variety of pets (including kids) you can have. I think it's random which pet you end up with though. I didn't select a pet (or at least I don't think I did) and I got this little guy:

It ages pretty rapidly. I've had him on for a day and a 1/2 and it's already 8 years old.

My mistake. I went to the UK website instead. The website doesn't show any info about this product,it only shows the Rainbow Magic books. I think it's a vintage spin-off product from years back. The seller might have more info,if you really want to find out.

The seller wasn't really informative. I'm just gonna play through a few life cycles and make a video, see if anyone on youtube knows what's up with it.

Sometimes someplaces you upload are like that. I am guessing youtube? Probably need to convert the .file in a video converter. Any Video Converter works well and its free. I use it constantly, You can convert music too.

What do you use to convert videos? Or what do you recommend? I don't know if it makes any difference that my computer is a Mac...

I turn the lights out on mine to go to sleep at night and then leave it on the clock screen.
Pretty sure that was the only way I could get it to work. I remember waking up a lot to it's beeping various times during the night just to give it medicine or clean it's poo up. -.-

ANY VIDEO CONVERTER
That is seriously what it is called. hehehe. I should have specified more.

I would try multiple conversions. I'm not sure if it would be different at all on your MAC.

Looked like it was only free for PCs. I looked under Mac and it said "Buy Now"

Boo... That sucks. I don't recall it had those opetions... I thought it was free for everyone. There is a "Low-Feature" one, that is the one I have. I use it to convert huge videos and take music from videos...

Thank you. I'll get new batteries and look at functions of the 4 buttons. How do you turn the lights off?

There should be a light option under the menu of things. Hopefully I'll get a video up of this thing some time soon. I just have to figure out how to compact the video so I can upload it. I haven't played with it in months because I kept getting characters I didn't like.

I actually own one. A few years ago, I bought one of the Fairy Magic books just to get the pet that came with it. I forget most of the things about it though, I haven't played with it for ages.

It's not fake. I got one, it came with a book. It was at my school's book fair.
