Give me a Commodore 64. Much more interactive.

Is it still blue if you hold it against a different color backdrop?

Looks like they took the hook out of a fishing lure. Bandai has lost it this time.

My son got his Magic Pet quiet a few months ago. They are quiet fun to watch and move around.

Disappointing - I thought it was Cthulhu in a jar.

What happens to the jellyfish if you let the bottle sit still?

So it never stops moving? If that's the case, I'm curious how they accomplish that.

Maybe I'll get one to keep my Sony Aibo company.

Not sure how they move, my son got his while I was away. So only seen it inside the bottle. He will kill me if I disect it.

BTW, ours is the white one they also come in red.

You can make these yourself. No need to fork out the dough.

Some little kid is gonna try to drink from the bottle and choke/die on this thing... not too swift.

it only moves when the pressure in the bottle changes, i.e by gripping it or pressing lightly on it.

How can you make this yourself? If it moves all the time, have Bandai invented a perpetual motion device (i.e. the holy grail of science)?

Don't real jellyfish sting?? So now children will think the cute little guys that are at the beach are fun too!

The little kurage moves when u squeeze the bottle even a tiny bit.. the bottle is soft plastic and so just holding it with enough pressure that you do not drop it will make him move and wiggle his arms ^_^ if you sit the bottle down then he goes 2 the top. The more you squeeze the bottle, the deeper down he goes.
