Seriously speaking, I think even Nintendo was surprised by the unprecedented success of its DS handheld console, and this achievement was made capable due to the creative games that were released for it. One of them was Nintendogs, giving everyone the chance to dote on their own virtual mutt without handling the mess created in real life. This title went on to sell millions worldwide, and we now have Nintendogs Beanies to flesh out your virtual pets for just £5.99 a pop. You can choose from a dozen breeds including Dalmation, Chihuahua, Toy Poodle, Labrador Retriever, Yorkshire Terrier, Golden Retriever, Jack Russell Terrier, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Pug, German Shepherd, Boxer and miniature Pinscher. These mutts come with a plastic collar and a Nintendogs button behind – pressing their left ear will make them whine and bark, similar to sounds found in the DS game.
