This is the only known "Digi-Interactive" Digimon toy for Digimon season 3 to be produced.

It (he) is a 20" tall electronic figure of the character Guilmon in Digimon season 3 of the television program. I have a whole boatload of Digimon plush (stuffed critters), a D3 digivice (season 2), a digimon analyser (a small computer-like device), a scanning D-Tector from season 3, two Digimon games for my Gameboy Advanced, a music CD with music from the movie and the TV series, and all of the episodes from seasons 1 through 5 on DVD -- but this is the only truly interactive Digimon toy I have in my possession (so I'm 45 and I like Digimon...so sue me!!! ).


Here's some proof...this is a large Ikkakumon plush (stuffed critter) that I have.


Here's more...this is me holding an Agumon plush in ~2001.


And more...this is a Digimon music CD that I obtained early this century...the original became lost in a move I made in late-2004, so I wasted no time in purchasing another.


And finally there's this:
Three large Digimon plush on the back of my electric wheelchair.
To this day (02-21-10), they're still there.

The Interactive Guilmon may hunger for a bit of power when you first receive him...here's how to satisfy that hunger:

On the bottom of the product near the tail, you'll see a battery door secured with a screw. Using a small phillips screwdriver (the #0 with a 2.40mm shaft diameter from my set of jeweller's screwdrivers worked like a charm here), loosen the screw until it stops moving outward. This screw is captive, and should not become lost unless you make a concerted effort to remove it.

Lift the battery door off, turn your TV on to Digimon, wait until they show Guilmon, and throw it at the screen so that he blasts it with a Pyrosphere...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

In the chamber, you'll see a gold colored battery carriage. Remove it, and dispose of or recycle the four used AA cells from it as you see fit.

Insert four new AA cells into this carriage, orienting the cells so that their flat-ends (-) negatives face the springs for them in each chamber.

Insert the now-full battery carriage back into the compartment, orienting it so that the two metal contacts on one end go in first and are facing Guilmon's head.

Finally, place the battery door back on, and tighten that screw. The threads in the screw receptacle are metal, so the chances of stripping the screw hole are reduced.
Aren't you glad that you didn't huck that battery door at your television set now?





Guilmon has two sensors in his head that can tell if you're nearby (wave your hand in front of his face if being there by itself elicits no response), he speaks more than 13 phrases, and he can move his jaws, arms, and legs.

He has a three-position switch:
Position 1 is "off".
Position 2 is "try me" where he speaks several phrases but does not move his body ("try me" mode requires you to press & release a small button on the opposite side of his body each time you want Guilmon to say something; his jaw moves but not his arms or legs).
Position 3 is "on" -- where he speaks all of the phrases he comes with, and moves various body parts during & after speaking.

Guilmon originally came with a plastic "bone" that he could gnaw on after he said "I'm hungry!", but that became lost in a move I made in late-2004.

The only thing that pisses me off about this toy that he doesn't use Guilmon's real voice, and he's missing some rather key phrases like "Guilmon bread" and "Takatomon".

Here, let's let the following video clips do the talking:

TEST NOTES:
Unit was purchased on Ebay many years ago -- possibly in 2000 or 2001.

Digimon is a registered trademark () of Bandai.

It is not known where the product was manufactured.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I wanted to publish it on this web page.


UPDATE: 12-31-10
I had a comment posted on my YourTube video; the visitor said that this toy sounded an awful lot like Veemon from season 2, and come to think of it, he's absolutely correct here!!!

This will probably be the last update I make to this website in 1990...er...2000...uh...this decade anyway.
