I went traveling last weekend, and visiting a toy store I saw these interesting toys, looking similar to virtual pets, but not quite, like the Littlest Pet Shop toys.
They're made by Radica, so I'm not too sure about the quality of them.
They're little cubes with screens on them, on the screen is a stick-man. With the buttons you can play games with the stick-man, or, because they come in packs of two, place them together (doesn't appear to have any connectors on it) they interact. It boasted 'over 100 animations'.http://www.radicagames.com/cubeworld/index.php

Anyone seen/own these things? I wanted to buy a pair, but they were $30, money I needed for food.
