I got this odd pet in a lot, and it initially didn't work, but after disassembling it, I found that one of the capacitors on the board had come loose and the metal part that connects the two LR44 batteries together was missing.
It comes in a dinkie dino shaped shell, and from the sprites, I think that this pet is a gyaoppi variant called the 'cute pet' listed on tamenargerie's odd pet page (links under the spoiler).
There are 4 buttons, the first scrolls through icons, the 2nd and 3rd seem to have the same function, which is to select options and bring up the clock screen. The 4th button is the cancel button. The sound is quite loud, I've tried pressing combinations of these 4 buttons, but haven't found a way to turn off sound or reset the clock.
The hatching animation showed a volcano erupting, and then a screen with a pulsating egg. Strangely enough, my pet hatched sick, with a skull icon above it's head.
There are 10 icons, in order they are:
Food (two options, a rice bowl? and seeds?) Lights Game Exercise (I've also seen this exercise animation on the cyberpet) Medical cross (brings up an animation of an ambulance, increases health bar but decreases happiness, can be used even when pet it not sick) Toilet Status Book (decreases happiness) Attention icon (non-selectable) Door The stats screen displays your pet's age, weight, hunger, EQ, happiness, health and IQ.
Selecting the Education and Door icons doesn't seem to do anything, maybe they only work when the pet calls for them. In the game, a heart flashes between two boxes and you have time your press to 'capture' the heart in a box. You can easily win by spamming the 1st button, as the heart will always spawn in the left box first. Winning increases both happiness and IQ.
Edit: I tried the door icon today, and a box/door appeared onscreen, which the character went into. Maybe it acts as a sort of daycare function, as I now cannot do anything to the pet with the exception of checking the status. Clicking on the door icon again does nothing.
Has anyone heard of this pet before? (Images under the spolier)
I haven't found much info on this virtual pet made by M&D, so I started a topic hoping to catalog some of the characters I get.
There a guide for this pet by Melissatchi on Instagram: https://www.dropbox.com/s/n43ymdhgaqssc1f/NANA MOON FAIRY-PET GUIDE.pdf?dl=0
Alongside raising your pet, you're tasked with gathering the '7 magical treasures'. Treasures 1-5 can be obtained by purchasing and using items from the in-game shop. Treaasure 6 is a telescope item which had been theorised to be unlocked by connecting to another maxi 10 times, and Treasure 7 may have something to do with inputting a passcode when you've obtained 6/7 treasures.
Here's what I got from my first run:
I'll update as I unlock characters, but I'm mainly creating this topic to gather info from others who've run this pet.
As you guys might be aware, when the GigaPetsAR line launched in late 2018, as mentioned back in this thread by @Eggiweg, several animals aside from the in-production trio of puppy, T-Rex, and unicorn, were shown on the site, implying that they would be future releases - these apparently-upcoming animals included a monkey, a lion, and, of the most interest to me because it's one of my collecting-focusses, a penguin.
I've been checking the official website periodically since then, and recently found that it's gotten a bit of a refresh - and the other animals that were previously shown on the site are now gone.
There is now an FAQ page, and I couldn't help but notice this question on it;
The Pixie, Star Cat, and Baby Bigfoot were not mentioned or shown on the original version of the site, which makes me suspect that the list of upcoming GigaPetsAR releases may be quite different from the line-up of animals that the site originally showed!
Whilst these fantastical creatures sound plenty interesting, hopefully the more normal animals that were shown before will still be released at some point - I was really looking forward to the first dedicated penguin virtual pet in years!

Hello! When I was about 10 years old, maybe younger, I saw a digital virtual pet/device in Target for pretty cheap... I think it was $10 or less. But anyway, I only saw it ONCE and the next time I went to Target, it wasn't there. I've never seen or heard about it since then, and I even looked through some of those oddpet websites but I don't think I found it... I'm not sure if it was even a pet, maybe just some other random animal-related device.
But anyway, I remember the toy or packaging being mostly red. It was rectangle-shaped, with only two buttons, and it was at a 45-degree angle in the packaging. I thought it was called "My Pet Shop" or something similar, but I googled that and couldn't find anything accurate. I think there was a building on the packaging, presumably a pet shop, and there were some pixelated animals including a bat.
Does this pet ring any bells? I doubt it, but it's worth a shot asking.
