So I'm getting a V-Migo and it'll be here on July 11. What should I know, especially...
--all about batteries
--can it clip to a lanyard like tamas can
--should i order the tv console? i can get it on amazon for eight bucks.
--what's the difference of golden retriever and chihuahua--is it just the breeds?
--does the pedometer really work?
--does it bark much at night? i used to have a tama v2 and it was REALLY annoying at night. lol.
--is it REALLY fun? ive been researching it for a long time and it looks awesome i cant wait to get my hands on one!
PLEASE reply!!!! :)

Stock on AAAs. Its worse then the tama-go sucking up batteries. I have a dog one.... the batteries lasted for 3 days, with NO sound. IT should come with a clip. (I didn't use the clip because I didn't trust it) You can hang it on a lanyard I think..... If you want to extend your play, I'd get the console, but I don't have one and you are on your own for that.... The difference is the breeds. I guess the Pedometer works... I never had an issue with the dog at night but I did have the sound off 100% of the time.

I enjoyed it for the time it was on but I REALLY suggest to get some Chargable batteries for the V-Migo. If its as much of a battery hungery dog as mine... The price for the rechargables is much worth it. Otherwise, Its a great toy... Besides the battery sucking vampire dog.... (Joke, no vampire dog... )

Depends on where you are in the world... Battery chargers vary... I normally see them with a pair of AA and AAAs. They are about $10... but someplaces have the price higher. How to charge them is so simple. When you buy a charger, you place them inside and boom, done. They are pretty simple to work. Let them charge for however long the instructions say and when they are ready... you can place them inside the V-Migo and they will work like a normal battery. They will also die like a battery would except you don't throw them out, you just put them back into the charger for another go. Normally you get tons of charges out of the batteries so it would in the end save you tons on the V-Migo...

You might need another rechargable AAA (separate pack....) because I think they take 3 not two... that and the charger only charges 2 of each at a time... That or another Charger so you have enough and they both can charge... I don't know... I'm too lazy to go check my V-migo for how many batteries. I think it is 3 though.....
