Thanks for the advice. It may come in handy if I ever do find a secondhand FurReal dog.

Yeah having a cat pretty much ensures you can't have any rodent pets. I once saw one of our cats tossing some kind of mouse in the air and pouncing on it when it landed. I'd hate to have that happen to one of the pet rats I had back in the 90s.

I get what you say about not buying the Zhu Zhu Vpet until you see someone else play with it. No sense wasting money on something you may end up hating.

No prob. I haven't used the Bleach for colors myself, but my mom has. She said if I come home with another used plush to use it.... Perferb in the washer.... Which I won't be doing because then I have to put it in multiple pillow cases rubber band... so the plush doesn't loose shape. Most of the time I would say they are electronic too... The Green stuff I have works good though, smells like apples.

I couldn't have a mouse of any sort because of my parents... hehehe. I think I found a baby snake once too. I let them go once I played with them for a little bit. I was young, they were interesting. Nobody knew of me playing with 'em. Of corse I hand washed my hands like crazy after messing with them.

I think the only good point I know of so far about them... Is that the pink one has a game simmilar to DanceDance Revolution with hand controls on it. It one of my favorite games. I do have a Muchiz Bratz toy with a dance game on it, I rarely play that though.... I got it for $3, new in package, color screen... clearance. I figured it was worth a laugh or two. I'm not, nor was I, into the Bratz dolls...etc.

I'm not very good at DDR type games. Usually if a game introduces that style of play at some point I can't get past it.

For $3 I don't blame you for buying it. $3 won't even buy a decent meal at Burger King. If you can find something that may provide a little entertainment for $3 I say go for it.

That Bratz toy was weird cause part of the clear part is buttons too. Took me the longest time to figure out it went to the dance game. I figure the cat and dog muchiz have the same button part on them. I think those have been going fairly cheap online. Not that fun though. I knew someone with a cat one. I know the site is gone now though.

So was there a Bratz dog VPet? Much as I hate Bratz if there was a dog VPet in the line I'd have to bite. I can't resist dog VPets no matter the line. If there was a Barbie dog VPet I'd go for it.

I think there was a Barbie one YEARS ago... But it was pratically the same as a Giga Dog... The purple one... I remember someone having one and they told me it was barbie. There was a cat, why not a dog. Now the Bratz thing was one of the bratz girls... They dont have pets in them either.

I know some of the newer versions on the Giga pets had two dogs... Well one was a normal looking dog and one I think was the puff ball... They have a School fature on them for during the day or work. They get sick more often then other pets. I had a fairy one.

I'm a completist in so much as I can be. I'd want all versions of the Giga Dog including the barbie one. I never saw the newer Giga pets around here. Of course I haven't seen the TamaGos around here either. Maybe my local Wal Mart has a hate on for these kinds of pets. FurReal Friends and Zhu Zhu Pets are plentiful.

The last gigas were bigger then the original. They are more like a handheld over a mini pet. They came out 3-4 years ago I think.... Someplaces could still have them. I see them every once in a while here. I don't know why, but I do. Normally its the big TV game with the giga pet.... White thing...

To save you some money... If you go for the older giga dogs... Just get the purple one. The dalmation one isn't really different. Just more rare and expensive... and dalmation dogs that are completely random. They look directly like the purple giga dog though... except with spots. But if you want them both, I wouldn't blame you. I have both... But I'd play with my purple one because its less rare and has a bit of scuffs on it because it was a pre-used pet I got. But I won it with a tama too though... I wasn't aiming for it, just the tama. It just worked out that way winning tht set in a bid.

If I weren't opposed to using Ebay I'd buy one of every dog Giga. It doesn't matter that they're all pretty much the same. Poo-Chis are pretty much the same too but I'd want every different color I could get. It's just how I am. The only reason I won't use Ebay is I don't want to get mixed up with PayPal which seems to be the only payment method offered these days. If it wasn't for that I'd Be on a Poo-Chi/FurReal Friends/Giga puppy buying binge as we speak.

I know wht you mean. I wish the simple Buy it Now section was still there. I use Ebay when I do buy stuff, and paypal. Its not that weird... But to get most of the stuff I import too, I need paypal. Then I don't need to worry about the money conversion and such. I would do Amazon, but I would get myself into trouble there.

Paypal in short is a "We will pay for the item you want... Now" and then take the money from the place you charge or whatever from when processed. Otherwise, I don't think its a bad thing. There is a one time fee of like $2. But that isn't bad at all. I've had one for years... I shouldn't but I do. Oh and the probable one week wait for your card to be put onto the account... and say it was like your bank... You would need the card... then a few other things which it will tell you. Most of it is pretty straight forward though once you get going. You can make one just to see what it is but you don't need to load a card at the beginning. You can leave it blank.......... but alas the $2 fee... Nyam.

I would SO love to buy more things on Ebay. Probably right now... I try to limit it to one thing a month, If anything at all. Otherwise I wait til the next month.

I just wish Ebay would allow an option to use the same method you use at places like Amazon. I'm not comfortable going the Paypal route. I've heard too many horror stories.

Horror stories? Humm. I know there are people who really don't know how to use it... Then get into issues. People also tend to forget about the conversion charge if you were uying from outta country with different currency/money. There are so many ways people *can get into issues... But it works just like a charage card in the store... just virtual..... But... I haven't ran into issues... But if I were to start selling, I would need to change my account... ETC. Because they have a few types.

I wish people would add that option back like Amazon's. I loved that, I used to be Amazon only user... But they got educated on paypal. (Read, learned... confirmed.... etc)

The stuff I heard was more about accounts being hacked. I just don't want to take the chance on anything like that happening, especially if I were to link it to my bank account. I'm disabled and on a fixed income. If someone hijacked my account and drained my bank accound I'd have no choice but to starve for the month. I have no additional income.

Humm true. That would 100% suck. Nobody would want that to happen to anybody. There are a few places I wouldn't trust putting my card on.... The Playstation for one.... (My ps2 for instance) the Wii.... easy things to hack guess....

Have you found a touch pet? They are like a Cube-World toy, but with pets. They are white and a bit bigger. I know they have a cat and a dog version... I think they have a dual one too (With both) I think I saw a bird too. But not in any of my stores. Those are kind of interesting with the little things it can do. (I have a cat) Then they don't die, they get sad, but I think that is a good thing. Then they have like a information bar graph on them... It weird. I might turn my cat on again. Sounds like a real animal to me. You don't need a stylus, only a finger to interact.

I have a hunch more non tama-pets are comming... What? I don't know, but I know summer is comming. Those ZhuZhu dogs might be out in stores more. I think I saw some more Snugga-mals out. I think they do a bit more then the privous. I didn't have anything to take a good picture with of them.

Touch pet sounds interesting. If I see a dog one I'll pick it up.

I didn't know the new snuggimals do more. I have five of the original. I may have to check the new ones out too.

I didn't play with the snuggamals yet to see if they were different.. But they looked different. I saw some a different Nintendo dog too... But I don't think it was new. They looked like they were in a different package.

The touch pets I think are still in Walmarts.... I think that is where I still see them. They might have them elsewhere. I like play with the one I have. It takes some AAAs batteries I think. I haven't played with it and my 3 Tama-Go are probably why. You can turn the sound off too, although one game turns it back on while you play it. The look of the dog reminds me of the Big headed dog/cats... They had bigger eyes too. Humm... Oh... "The Dog" or "The Cat" things... But I've only seen the sticker protectant dog pixels, not in use. The cat/dog I think connect too. I am not sure what they do together... They have connectors on the sides.

I've seen the square ones (cat and dogs) but I haven't seen the angled one. I've seen a larger retangle one too... I'm not sure how different it is compared to the other ones. Seems like there is another one out there that is just named different, probably in another language too. Like Rupuppy or something like that.... I think roughly translated, Your puppy....) I'm unsure about a cat in another language but I bet there is.
