Virtual Cyber Pets

One of the most popular battery powered toys is a virtual cyber-pet, commonly referred to as hatchimal. In this type of powered toy, your battery-operated animal is born and you raise it like you would raise a normal pet. You have to feed the virtual pet, take it for toilet breaks, ensure that the cyber-pet gets enough sleep in the day. If all of this is not done, the cyber-pet can get sick and die. These virtual cyber-pets were very common in 1990s. Today, some parents introduce virtual cyber-pets to their kids before purchasing a real pet for them so that the kids understand the responsibilities that come with having and raising pets.
