Virtual Pet Review: Fluffy Poop from Happinet Toys

This is another pet that I found while browsing around on AliExpress, and although I was intrigued and wanted to try it out, the shop page didn't have any info about the original manufacturer, and it was pretty expensive. It took me a while of looking and searching the internet, but eventually I found out where this little toy came from. The Fluffy Poop toy from Happinet Toys (Official website) seems to have only been released in Japan and doesn't have much marketing in the rest of the world, so I ended up buying it from Amazon Japan for about $40. While I had to wait a while for it to arrive, it was cheaper paying for the extra shipping than it would have been from AliExpress, where they're currently charging about $80.

The pets you'll care for with this toy are all shaped like poop emojis, and your goal will be to raise as many different kinds as you can in order to collect all the different poop characters. These characters are all care based, so if you want to get them all, you will need to vary how often to check on them and respond to their calls. After the poop dies, or gets too old, you can raise another and try again! I ran this for about a week and have had a lot of fun with it. While it's a bit more simplistic than my other pets, the animations are cute, and there are enough differences to make it really stand out in my collection.

A look at my homemade cassette tapes

Currently Feeling: creative

I've talked a few places before about how I really like to collect physical media, and one of those types of physical media is cassette tapes. I have a lot of nostalgia wrapped up in these little magnetic records because as a kid, I wasn't really allowed to buy popular music. The reason for why is another story for another time, but the restriction made me learn how to make my own tapes, which I did using a little black Citizen cassette player with a radio, and I recorded all of my favorite pop songs late at night when I wasn't able to sleep. I wish I still had that mix tape today, although my tastes in music have changed since then. Instead, I've scratched that itch by making new mix tapes using music that I feel best belongs on the medium.

A group of my home-made cassettes: from top left to bottom, WaveRace64 soundtrack, Pilotwings64 soundtrack, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time soundtrack, Super Mario 64 soundtrack, Ghostly Swim Vol. 1 bootleg, Warm Cup of Tea mixtape, Kalax self-named album bootleg, Sims Favorites mixtape, Floral Shoppe bootleg, Sleepercatcher bootleg. Also bonus cat.

I don't have any clear-cut criteria for this, really, it's just based on my own gut feelings, really. I've always really loved making playlists, so choosing a theme or mood, finding the right songs, and then cutting them down so everything will fit, is a really fun task that leaves me with something special afterwards.
