Giga Pets are a series of virtual pets. They were first created and released in 1997 and re-released in 2006 by Tiger Electronics, now a division of Hasbro. They were one of the first virtual pets to be released in the United States.
The first Giga Pets included the Bit Critter, Compu Kitty, Digital Doggie, and Micro Chimp. Baby T-Rex and Virtual Alien were added shortly after, with Komputer Koala and Floppy Frog following. When Tiger Electronics decided to release a new line of pets, they called them Giga Friends. These included such pets as the Salem the Cat giga pet, Looney Tunes, Giga Farm, and various Star Wars characters, among others.
