What dinosaur virtual pet was this?

Recommended Posts

Hi! New here (I might make an introduction post later).

I've been trying to ID an old Virtual pet and thought someone here might be able to shed some light.

 

When I was a kid I was given a Dinosaur virtual pet. I remember the shell being red. I seem to remember it being chunky like a dinky dino, only when I looked into info in the Dinkie Dino it seems like it wasn't the same. I remember my dino would change into different things depending on how you cared for it, like a Pteranodon or a Sauropod (whose sprite was so big you could only see its neck and head) and I don't think Dinkie Dino has those kinds of evolutions so I wonder if maybe I had something different? It would be interesting to know if other people had this vpet.

Tamenagerie has some oddpets listed.

Was it perhaps a gyaoppi dinosaur or an MGA dino?

Yes, that's it! It must have been a Gyaoppi Dinosaur. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! They seem pretty rare, I should have kept a hold of mine. Darn you, past me!

There are a couple up on Ebay for a decent price. I feel your pain though, should have held onto my supper gyaoppi as well.

I wonder how the heck I had one in the first place. Aren't these Japanese only?

During the heights of the virtual pet craze in the 1990s, there were plenty of places that imported them, including ones that you wouldn't otherwise expect to do so.

 

I remember being able to pick up a Tamagochan from a local general store, back in the day!

      Hello! 
       
      Recently I've been debating on purchasing a AngelScope virtual pet. Whenever I look up any information on it though, there's very little on it. One being from this site many years ago stating that it's a fortune teller? So I was hoping to make a more recent post on it and see if anyone has anymore information on it! Any bit helps! 
      One of my own personal questions is, what is the purpose of the three holes on the side of it?
       
      Thank you!

      So I recently got a QT Rabbit Pet! All the pixels work, it's cute- but sadly there's two things wrong with it. 🥺 It's touch screen yet it doesn't work at times and sometimes it does if I'm lucky. It's also suppose to play music, which I'd like to try and fix too, but if not I would really like to get the touch screen working.
       
      I was wondering if anyone here would be able to help/suggest anything! Thank you in advance!
       
      ALSO! Sorry if this is the wrong area to post this in- I didn't know where else to go and ask this and thought this was my best bet!

      I remember owning a penguin virtual pet around 10 years ago, but I have no clue what it's called and have had zero success finding it online. It was white and the shape of an igloo, I believe about 4 inches long. It had a fairly large screen and a few buttons below the screen (I think there were 4 or 5?) I'd love to know if anyone owns one of these or knows what I'm referencing! I don't have a photo of it unfortunately.

      So, back in 1998 or 1999, my mother had gotten me this virtual pet from Avon - I know nothing about it, besides what it looks like [sadly I don't know where it is at the moment, so I can't take a reference image].

      It was blue and green, round, and came on a rubber wrist strap, that made it look like a chunky watch made to resemble the earth at first glance.
      I don't remember much about it, besides the fact that it could evolve either into a T-Rex or a Pterodactyl, and the discipline option was particularly disturbing to me as a child, because it showed a person shouting and shaking a wand of some sort at the dinosaur xD.

      I know this isn't a lot to go off of, but has anyone else ever encountered one?
      I've done some googling and couldn't find a trace of this particular virtual pet anywhere online, although there are so many in existence that I'm not terribly surprised.
