Parents need to know that the Wappy Dog is both a tech toy and video game. The video game functions similarly to most other virtual pet games -- players can feed, groom, and pet the dog as well as play mini-games with it. What sets this game apart is the physical robotic toy dog that comes with the game. The toy connects wirelessly with the Nintendo DS, allowing communication between the two (for example, the toy dog makes barking sounds, which the game "translates" for players). The robotic toy stores information from the game and changes over time, making it appear as though it becomes more familiar with the player and adjusts its attitude accordingly. The game can also be played without the toy nearby.
