This is what Littlest Pet Shop pets are SUPPOSED to look like. I loved these little pets!

Miniatures have always fascinated me and I remember getting my first ever Littlest Pet Shop pet when I was almost 3. It was 1991. My little brother was just born and I was in the hospital with my family and my grandparents gave me the Chameleon. It was a simple little green lizard, but if you squeezed him, the heat from your fingers would change his dark green color to a bright, almost-yellow green. 

And thus began my collection of nearly every single one of the pets they made. 

GIGA-PETS!!!

SUCH a ridiculous commercial, but SUCH an awesome toy!

I totally had the Koala that flashes near the end of the video. LOVED it so much.

Did you ever have a Giga-Pet?
