Train your own Nintendog plush

Ross Miller

As adorable as the Nintendogs could be on screen, it was only a matter of time before someone licensed them for recognizable plush toys for mass indulgence.

Two types of Nintendog-licensed plush pups will be available. The Trick Trainers include a magnetic bone that reacts to magnets of opposite polarity inside the plush toy, giving the appearance the puppy is following the bone with its eyes, wagging its tail, or reaching its paw out for a delicious handout. The Interactive Play Pups (or "Nintendog deluxe") are more robotic: they wag their tails when you touch them, bark and howl when you howl, and growl when you play tug-of-war.

The Trick Trainer and Interactive Play Pups are available on Amazon UK for £9.99 and £24.99, respectively (or approximately $20 and $48 for those interested in the US). Our search found a wide variety of available plush pets. Nintendogs was a runaway success: how many of these pups are going to get squeezed out of parents' bank accounts?
