Anyone able to identify this old virtual pet?

Recommended Posts

Without seeing a picture of it running, I can't say for certain, but my best guess here is that it's a Hitorikko dinosaur. The Hitorikko line was a series of virtual pets that took cues from the Dinkie Dino and its kin, and they even used a casing that was based on it.

 

A quick check of Google Images would appear to confirm this guess.

 

I hope that this was helpful! :)

That google search did return a very similar image but I am not able to find much more than that. Unfortunately I am not sure what kind of batteries it takes.

With very few exceptions, virtual pets and keychain-games from the 1990s used a pair of LR44 button-cells for power (though the orientation isn't always the same across different brands of virtual pets).

If the battery-compartment looks something like this, then it almost certainly requires two LR44s.

 

LR44 batteries are also known as;

 

CR44

SR44

357

SR44W

AG13

G13

A76

A-76

PX76

675

1166a

LR44H

V13GA

GP76A

L1154

RW82B

EPX76

SR44SW

303

SR44

S303

S357

SP303

SR44SW

 

You can find them for sale under any of these numbers.
