My experience with these was like the stock market back in the day.
I started with floppy frog...
traded that and two bouncy balls for salem the cat...
traded that for 101 dalmatians and compu koala...
traded 101 dalmnations for a kfc digital doggie and the original...
traded those and the koala to a collector who was missing everything but...
and got 8 of his doubles in return!!! (and a pokemon pikachu, but that is another, reallly, really, REALLY long story.. Wouldn't believe what happened at 1 million steps!)

The thing I liked most about Giga Pets was the fast aging cheat. You just kept resetting the clock to 11:59 PM, and when it hit midnight, the pet would be one year older. My frog was a big fat 20-year old in 20 minutes! Oh well, now I have this Tamagotchi Connection and I'm pretty happy with it.

I also had a Digital Doggie Dear Diary (My "D" key just broke) once....but it flat out vanished. I honestly think my brother stole it after he dropped his virtual pet in his chicken soup...not that I have any proof of that.
There used to be this weird thing with some Giga pets though, that if you you reset it and let it sit on the "set time" screen for several days, and then started it up, it would be born...large. Like, in the third stage of growth I think. It was really weird...I wonder if they fixed that in newer versions. Has anyone else had that happen?

This was one of my first pets. It always got sick, but it was the closest thing I've ever had to a tamagotchi until now. 3 different stages. Whoopee. I also have this 2 in 1 cat and dog, which is surprisingly my favorite un-tamagotchi at the moment. black evil cat and dog with bad treatment, white cat and dog with good treatment.
does anyone here have a giga pet floppy frog for sale? i really want one to care for

I hated them at first, too, for the same reason--and a lot of people felt the same way about them being too hard to care for. But then I learned that it was only because the instructions never really told us the CORRECT way to care for them.
I HATED GIGA PETS@! they were so hard to take care of.
I used to get so frustrated about how often they beeped and how fast the happiness meter would empty out, but then I found a great article that explained how the training feature affects the happiness and the truth about how the food affects the health, etc.. and ever since then, I've found GigaPets to be one of the EASIEST pets to care for.
In fact, I like them so much that I now have almost the entire collection, including the "A Bugs Life" Gigapet Plus that I didn't even know they made until I spotted one on ebay! I think the only ones I don't have are the Batman (etc) Fighters and the extremely rare "Cabbage Patch" Giga Plus.
Here's a link to that article I mentioned--> GigaPet Care Sheet

Then there's useful things like the care sheet in the post above to help out the rest of us
