Hi!

I'm looking for one specific virtual pet from late 90's. I hope someone here can help me! I had one like this when I was a child, and I would like to find one now, for my collections.. There's is only one problem. I don't have any info about this pet, no name, no pic..

The pet had 2 pets in 1, one was a dino and other was a dog. You could choose between dino and dog right away first when the batteries were put in. The color of the toy was turquoise/blue/green (transparent) and it had white buttons. There was also a palm tree on the casing. If I remember right that palm tree even glowed in the dark. It had all basic functions as normal virtual pets have and in addition for that there was also a weather function. So when it was raining in the screen, i had to give my pet an umbrella, and when it was sunny, I gave him a hat (baseball cap) to wear. :D It was just a really nice pet, lived long if was taken care of properly and there were many different variations for dino and dog figures how they looked like when pet grow older.

If someone happens to know anything more about this kind of a like pet, I would be very appreciated! :ichigotchi: Even knowing a right name for this pet would help a lot.

It reminds me of something like a Dinkie Dino or something like a Yuki Penguin. I am not sure, but you could search for simmilar toys to that....

Good luck finding it!

Have you visited www.tamenagerie.com ?

This is a really cool site if you are looking for vps.

The multi pets page might have a pic of one similar to your pet: http://www.tamenager...Multipets1.html

There are a lot of interesting pages to click through there!

There is also a guy on ebay - chickeneater - who specialises in selling older VPs from way back when : http://myworld.ebay.com/chickeneater/
you might find a pic of the VP you remember in his store.

Good Luck :)

Hi. Thank you! :kuribotchi: Noup, it's not a Dinkie Dino :( I have Dinkie and if I remember right, Dinkies don't even have a weather-functionality. I have never played with Yuki, but I assume it is much similar to Dinkies?

Hi! Thanks for good advices! :ichigotchi: Tamenagerie and chickeneater are both familiar to me, actually I have visited their sites often and tried to find that special VP. And never seen anything just like it.

Couple of days ago I found Micro Pet Baby Dino (http://www.tamenager...om/oddpets.html) and this is the most similar to this pet I've been looking for. Games look the same, icons and functionalities look mostly the same, pet graphics and casing are different and there is only dino available, not a dino and dog. Maybe I should try to buy one Micro Pet Baby Dino and hope it would be somewhat I'm looking for... or at least a nice pet. :D

This oldie virtual pet I'm looking for must be a super rare stuff these days I guess. :(
