Two toys I wanted as a kid but never got.

The Furby

      The main reason for their popularity was because of apparent "intelligence", reflected in their ability to develop language skills.
Furbys can communicate with one another via an infrared port located between their eyes. Furbys start out speaking entirely Furbish, a language with short words, simple syllables, and various other sounds, but are programmed to speak less and less Furbish and more and more English as they "grow".
There was a common misconception that they repeated words that were said around them. This belief most likely stemmed from the fact that it is possible to have the Furby say certain pre-programmed words or phrases more often by petting it whenever it said these words. As a result of this myth, several intelligence agencies banned them from their offices.



Tamagotchi / Giga Pets

      Giga Pets are a series of virtual pets. They were first created and released in 1997. The first Giga Pets included the Bit Critter, Compu Kitty, Digital Doggie, and Micro Chimp. Baby T-Rex and Virtual Alien were added shortly after, with Komputer Koala and Floppy Frog following.
Virtual pets such as Tamagotchi and Giga Pets, are sold on a self-contained, palm-sized computer. The egg shaped cases of the Tamagotchi, a small screen has an image of the pet, while buttons on the case let the user perform different tasks, such as .

   Feeding the Tamagotchi a piece of food or a snack.
   Playing games with the Tamagotchi.
   Cleaning up a Tamagotchi's waste.
   Checking its age, discipline, hunger, happiness and other statistics.
   Connecting with other friends

   Dissatisfied pets can emit beeps and sometimes "die"
