The great success of the Tamagotchi "key chain pet" has brought many "look alikes" into the arena. Most of them are made in Asia and several may see only limited sales in the U.S. We have only "bits and pieces" of information about some of them and post what we have on this page along with some links to additional information about them. All of them appear colorful and interesting.

Most of these graphics have been "borrowed" from other web sites. We reference the original sites and encourage you to visit them for additional information. We thank those who have gathered and posted virtual pet information around the world. We are just trying to "log" the various keychain pets here.

Chicknoch and Dinopet

The chicken has a growth chart similar to some of the Tamagotchi growth charts I have seen. It is reproduced below.


This near replica of the Tamagotchi was being offered by a firm called, Unigain Trading Co. of Taiwan with and interesting disclaimer on their page, "This product is not a Tamagotchi ('virtual pet') and any resemblance to Tamagotchi ('virtual pet') is incidental."

You can see it on their website.

Pet Vet

This pet teaches you to take care of your pet and how to be your own Veterinarian. Actual toy is white with black spots. If you do not take good care of your pet, it runs away. By RandToy

8 in 1

At the beginning of the game, you can select the pet to be any of eight different pets: dinosaur, puppy, kitten, fish, butterfly, pigeon, chicken, or a crab. Having one of these is like owning 8 different virtual pets!

Kute-Pets Baby Dino

The information and photos below come from the Kute-Pets Baby Dino Page.

There are 10 different ways to look after him, such as feeding him, playing with him, putting his pajamas on before bed, teaching him to learn, etc. Of course, don't forget to take him to the bathroom. He will grow each day if he is well cared for or will die if he is neglected.

Kute-Pets Baby Dino was added 12 June 1997


This "Dinosaur Pet" has food choices (hamburger, ice tea, candy), weather (rain, snow, sunny), medicine (injections), 2 games (hi-lo and follow the dinosaur), and school functions.

This page was created 24 May 1997 as the Miscellaneous 
Keychain Pet page and then turned into Keychain Pet Page 2
on 14 July 1997.
