Great Game Mar 13, 2007
At first, when I saw this dock in my Christmas stocking to go along with my Giga Pets hand-held, I put a fake, cheesy grin on my face and humored my parents by pretending to like it. Honestly, I wouldn't have been caught dead playing a game with the word, "explorer" in the title.
A few months later, though, when I was cleaning out my room and giving various things collecting dust to Good Will, I came across this game, and decided to give it a try before totally giving up on it. I gathered up the four AA batteries required, took the cover off of the bottom with a screwdriver and plugged the yellow and white docks into the matching colored outlets on my TV.
I then proceeded to pick out my pet, and noticing that there wasn't a dog in the variation of colors that I desired, I turned the game off and reset the game, pleased greatly that when I tried again, my dream dog was there. I had initially plugged my Puffball Gigapets Handheld into the dock and didn't realize that it would not give me the option to "ZAP" it into the game unless I plugged it back into the dock when I was already playing.
I did so, and was surprised to find that my once-strictly-2D Puffball was now a noise-making, color-changing ball of fur that followed my pet around wherever I went. I also was enabled to visit an Island that without my Minipet, wouldn't have otherwise gotten to do so.
In conclusion, this toy may look like a Fisher Price twinky toy from the outside, but if you wait to play it, you'll notice that it is fun for all ages. There are numerous goals and new openings to go through depending on how many quests you complete (so that there won't be another Animal Crossing disaster), and once you have explored all of the land there is to explore, just hold out and there will be aliens that can change your color.
Now at thirteen years of age, I am still playing this game on a small, old TV with USB docks that doesn't get channels or cannot play movies otherwise, and play a little old-school by using this T.V. (that has surprisingly-great picture and sound!) to play my game almost every day.

A Great Game! Dec 28, 2006
This toy was a real surprise! The hookup to the tv couldn't be easier, first of all... You can be playing the game withing seconds of taking it out of the package. My 6-year-old daughter got this toy for Christmas and loves it. She takes the mini pet (a hamster) everywhere--and loves to see her hamster following the pets around when its hooked up to the tv. The level of play is perfect... She played for two hours last night and never got frustrated... she just laughed, a lot! I found myself begging for a turn to play. This game is pure fun, but not without its educational benefits either. I'm happy to see my daughter interested enough to work through difficult words she comes across while playing. I recommend this toy for anyone.

Truly AWESOME Feb 19, 2007
I just bought the Giga Pet Explorer today! I am 12 (almost 13). It hooks up very easily, and I would SO recommend it to any kid who likes interactive virtual pets.
The "quests" are very fun, they are simple, yet entertaining. I really like it. Also, it's fun collecting "halos" and "pitchforks" to create you personality. I like to decorate my house, too.
The controllers work great and are easy to work. The menu is simple to move around, YOU SHOULD SO BUY THIS! I would never get rid of this game!

Very very fun!! Sep 24, 2006
I got this 2 days ago and it is great! I love going on the quest and zapping my mini pet into it. Its like a continuing adventure every day. The quests are not that hard and not to easy. Its great for kids who don't have pets, because they have to take care of their own gigapet on the T.V.
