Nano Babies Go Up Against Tamagotchi and Giga Pets

Even the virtual world has its pecking order; Playmates Toys will test the waters with its new entry.

To compete with the virtual pet craze spawned by Bandai's Tamagotchi and Tiger's Giga Pets, Playmates Toys will bring out its own version later this month. Called Nanos, they can grow from an infant to a child, kitten to cat, or puppy to dog. The toys will sell for a retail price of $14.99 to $19.99, about the same price as Bandai's Tamagotchi. Neglecting or mistreating your Nano will make the game end by having your pet run away.
