Mogwai are very sensitive. I know when someone pets me, tickles my tummy, covers my eyes, picks me up, hugs me, turns me upside-down, makes loud noises, or plays music. I can see and are very sensitive to light. And best of all, I have a BIG heart!


I mostly speak English but I also have special words that I use to describe the things I see and experience. I will speak to you using English and my own special words. To help you understand what I am saying, please use the special dictionary that comes with me in the package.

I like to be held, petted and tickled. You can pet my tummy, rub my back, rock me and play with me. Whenever you do these things, I will speak and make cool sounds.

Gizmo At various times, I will require a certain kind of attention from you. Just like you, I am very good at letting people know when I need something.

If I am hungry, please feed me. Since I can talk, you have to listen to hear when I tell you I want food. If I say "mim hungy" or "paleez yum yum" I will open my mouth so you can feed me. Just put your fingertip into my mouth , press down on my tongue, and watch me chew. I will respond to your feeding so you will know what I am eating what you have offered.

I only eat PRETEND food. You should never feed me real food or liquids. I will eat until I am full and then tell you I am not hungry anymore. You can feed me by inserting your fingertip into my mouth.

If you do not feed me when I get hungry, I will not want to play anymore until you feed me.

****HELPFUL TIP: When Gizmo is hungry, Gizmo will usually want to eat 6 to 10 times. Feed Gizmo until Gizmo responds 6 to 10 times. Then Gizmo will be full and ready to play!

If you don't feed me, I will began to get sick. I will tell you that I am sick by sneezing or saying "no feel goo". If you allow me to get sick, soon I will not want to play and will not respond to anything but feeding. Also, if I get sick, I will need to be fed a minimum of 10-15 times before I began to get well again.

After I have been fed 10-15 times, I will begin to feel better, but to nurse me back to complete health, you will have to play with me. Just like you, when I feel better I laugh, giggle, and I am happy. You'll know when I am better. I will stop saying "no feel goo". Also I will want to play games.

Gizmo I will tell you when I am tired and want to go to sleep. I am usually quite when I sleep, but sometimes I snore! When I am asleep, I will close my eyes and lean forward as shown in this illustration.

Sometimes you can get me to go to sleep by petting me gently on my back for a while. If you pet me for a while (between 10 and 20 times), I will hum gently or say something like "seepy time" or "poo poo" and then go to sleep.

Also, you can get me to go to sleep by putting me in a dark room or covering my eyes for 10-15 seconds.

If you go not play with me for a while, I will take a nap until you are ready to play. When you are ready to play, you will have to wake me up. When I am asleep and you want to wake me up, pick me up and gently tilt me side to side until I wake up. I will then wake up and be ready to play. Sometimes, I may not want to wake up and will try to go back to sleep. Don't worry. This is OK. Continue to tilt me side to side until I wake up.

Deep Sleep mode is when I go to sleep and the only way to wake me is to pick em up and turn me complete upside down.

If you want to put me in a DEEP SLEEP, please follow the sequence below.

  1. Clap, wait until I stop speaking and moving.
  2. Clap, wait until I stop speaking and moving.
  3. Clap, wait until I stop speaking and moving.
  4. Rub my back.
  5. I will then start to hum "Rock A Bye".
  6. WHILE I am singing, press my tummy switch and my back switch at the same time. Hold until I finish singing.
  7. I will then be in DEEP SLEEP mode.
  8. To wake me from DEEP SLEEP mode, turn me completely upside down.

****NOTE: When you want me to go into DEEP SLEEP mode, it is important that you wait for me to stop moving and speaking after each step before doing the next action. Therefore, when you clap your hands, wait for me to stop speaking and moving before you clap your hands again. The only exception to this is when you have to press my back and tummy switches at the same time WHILE I am singing "Rock A Bye Baby".

****HELPFUL TIP: I can only be awaked from DEEP SLEEP mode by turning me upside down. I will not wake up when I am tilted side to side.
