Hi everyone, I'm new here at TamaTalk. I recently found an old pet of mine that I played with in the late 90s. I'm not even sure if it's a tama, or if it works, but if anyone knows what it is please let me know. I would love to buy it again if at all possible, or find out what kind of batteries it takes so I can find out if this one still works. It has a light pink see-through shell and it used to have a rubber head on the right side, but it broke off long ago. I can't remember the type of animal unfortunately. Here's a picture!

Yeah, I guessed it probably wasn't a real tama. But I loved it when I was a kid - do you by chance know where it came from?

Looks like a really bad fake. Im surprised that it works at all.

The pink at the bottom looks melted.

Any matter, I would guess a dino pet. If it was a 90's pet, most common battery for small electronics like this were LR44 batteries. (if it happened to say like A76 or 352, the LR44 should work fine)

I haven't tried playing it since I was a kid, but yes it did work very well actually. It's what my parents got for me and I loved it. It's already been established that it's a "fake", so your comment is useless.

It's not melted, just really old and ratty looking - that is one thing I didn't like about it, is the rubber on the bottom. Anyway, you've been the most helpful so far, so thank you very much!

It's definitely a type of Dino Pet just as SailorRosette said.  

There are similar dino pets that look like this: $(KGrHqVHJDME90wT,HRiBPhj,f8F9Q~~60_35.J

Rubber? Now that is different. Slime type of depiction? If something hits me I will come back. For some reason a ticket prize type of thing comes to mind though...

I say melted only because I had a pink watch that color sorta melt that looked very simmilar. It turned an orange color and anything touching whatever made it melt took on the same color. (the orange/pinkish color)

The rubber has definitely turned a yellowish colour, not sure how that happened. This pet has just been kept in an old drawer until I found it recently. The rubber looks to have some black spots on it, though, and it did used to have a rubber head on the side. For some reason I'm thinking it was a dog, but that wouldn't really make sense if it's a dino pet. It's clearly just a cheap knock off, but I'm still curious as to what it could be. I'll have to get some batteries and see if I can get it to work, though it's probably too damaged. :(

I got my pet to work! The buttons are a bit stiff, but it works just fine otherwise, to my surprise. I still have no idea what he is, he looks like a little pumpkin at the moment. The icons seem quite similar to the Tamagotchi's, but the animations are very basic. I uploaded a short video on Youtube so you all can get a better idea of what it's like. I filmed it vertically - sorry about that!

I think this is meant to resemble a tamagotchi, but not to be a fake. Hundreds of small companies created similar stuff that retailed for dirt cheap prices.

Judging from your video, it's very poorly made and is definitely far from a tamagotchi. Still doesn't mean you can't have fun with it!

My sister actually had one of those! This might sound a bit off, but it is actually a dog virtual pet. The rubber head that belonged to the side should've been a dog!

 

I believe it starts off as a little blob (as seen in your video), and then it begins to grow a tail. I don't remember what it grows into next. 

 

Unfortunately, I don't recall the exact name of it, and I can't find any pictures of it. But I'll post in this topic as soon as I find it!

It is indeed a dog! I was a bit surprised when it evolved into one considering how it looked as a baby. And now that you mention the rubber head being a dog, I do remember that! I hope you can somehow find out what it is, I would love to know. :P

 

It is very poorly made, but I do love it nonetheless, mostly because I loved playing with it when I was a kid.
