Hey remember these toys from years ago? MicroPets by Tomy. Voice activated and they'd interact with each other. I love these guys. They freak the cats out.
I've had them packed away in my "toys" box for a while now, and every time I accidentally bumped into the box, they'd turn themselves on (the little power button is right on top of their heads). All of a sudden there'd be little electronic barks and meows and clickity clicks and squeals and whines for a good 10 minutes. Whoopsie.
It looks like they're still available in Japan. Why does Japan always get the cool toys??
Also, this reminds me...I need more toys for this shelf. It's lacking.
