I always say that the ’90s is the best decade ever. The Giga Pet contributed to that considerably.
A Giga Pet was essentially a virtual pet that you had to tend to throughout the day. you to do things like feed, pet, clean, etc. The life span of your Giga Pet was based on how well they are treated.
Nowadays schools are trying to keep cell phones out of the classroom, but that’s how Giga Pets were treated in the late ’90s. There was some parent that looked at Giga pets as a way to teach young children responsibility.
You can find Giga Pets on eBay or Amazon from anywhere between $80 to $150.
