A craze for an electronic ?pet bird? has swept Japan and the toys are selling on Tokyo streets for almost #200.
The egg-sized Bandai bird has been snapped up by parents eager to satisfy their babies who want the digital toy. According to reports, it is self cleaning unlike normal birds. One delighted buyer said: "When you clean up its droppings, it jumps up and down and looks happy, so you stop thinking of it as a picture." Bandai representative Tomio Motofu said the company sold 350,000 units in 38 days. The bird is obviously a goer.
