Take your virtual pets everywhere and then plug them into your TV when you get home to explore a new world of adventures! This cute virtual dog can go everywhere you do, when you get home just put the Vmigo into the telepod console and connect to your TV then you can watch your pet appear on your TV screen where you can play games and interact with other pets. When you're ready to go back out the console saves and changes to your pet.
