Pakka pets! Do they need to be potty trained?

Now, as some of you may know, my son who is five years old, is a “gamer”.  He loves video games and he is on a first name basis with the folks at Gamestop. Well, not really but these are his “peeps”.  People who understand his attraction to all things electronic.   Frankly, I have an aversion to the smell of the place.  There is a faint hint of plastic and body odor co-mingling (yes, this is a word) that hits me when I open the front door.  I will say the people that work there are experts – very knowledgeable and helpful.  They are great for business.

But the blog has introduced me to a new game (yet to be released which is even cooler!)  And it doesn’t require a trip to the store.  It is an iphone/Android game where you raise your own pet and one of the creators and I have been communicating.  I really like this game.  It is about these cute little pets that you can feed and dress up and love.  And they don’t need to be taken out to go the bathroom in the cold weather!  I really like that.  The second thing I like about this concept are the people behind it.  They are two young entrepreneurs and who doesn’t love the entrepreneurial spirit, right?  It doesn’t hurt that they are cute, too!  Hey, I am single, I can say these things!  If I was a betting person, I would bet they are headed for great success with this venture.   Let’s put it this way, the words of Oscar Wilde were being thrown around.  Things about discontent and progress.  Good stuff.

Anyway, if you enjoy products like this you should check out the kickstarter link here:  You can donate whatever you like to the project (even $1 gets you in on the action).  And donating gets you closer to exclusive prizes like special pets, iphone cases, even some lucky backers will get flown out to CA for the game release.  How fun would that be?  Anyway, it is scheduled to be released in June and for sure, I will keep you posted. In case you were wondering, I ran this product by my committee which includes a gaming expert, a middle schooler and Meepy, a favorite stuffed animal and now, Pakka pet wannabe.  If Meepy likes it, then I know I am on to something! I guess you can all thank Meepy this time!

  1. Sounds great! By the way, I love the name of your blog. A good friend of mine said to me once, when my first son was little, “It is what it is” and it’s a mantra that’s gotten me through the past 3 years or so, as well as a second baby! Thanks:-)
