MicroPets

First released in 2002, TOMY MicroPets had a pretty great run in the states. They stand a little under two inches tall and made it into the Guiness Book of World Records for being the smallest sound-activated self-powered toy at the Tokyo Toy Fair that same year.

Basic Instructions
Wake up your MicroPet by pressing the button on it's head.
Talk to your MicroPet to make it react.
If you repeat the same command over and over, it'll ignore you.
Hold down the button on it's head for three seconds to make it sing a lullaby and go to sleep.

Note
MicroPets do not understand what you are saying, but they do understand word length and combinations of words and sounds.

Micro Pets-i

Released in 2010, TAKARA TOMY Micro Pets-i was supposed to be a hit that year, but I think it went a little unnoticed. The original MicroPets were undoubted popular, but sadly, Micro Pets-i didn't last as long. To be honest, I like the design of the older ones better, but I haven't had the chance to see one of these in person to comment on their behavior.

Songs
Clap your hands three times to have it sing "It's a Small World."
Clap four times for "Ten Little Indians."
Clap five times for "Electrical Parade."
Be sure to wait for the MicroPet's nose to light up between each clap.
Micropets can sing in unison, too!

Program Mode
To program your MicroPet, turn the MicroPet off, then press the button on top of its head six times. Your pet will light up and make three small beeping noises. Wait one second and the pet will light up again. Press the pet's head button now if you want to program the "Go Forward" command. To program the "Turn Right" command, wait for the pet to light up twice, then press the head button. To program the "Turn Left" command, wait for the pet to light up three times, then press the head button.

When you hear three beeping sounds, the MicroPet has finished programming and will perform the commands. You can program up to five commands in a row. When in program mode, your pet will not respond to your voice commands or sing songs. To go back to the normal command mode, turn the MicroPet off then back on.
