Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

The pet rock mentioned above is good too, but is there no love for Sea Monkeys? They were awesome when I was a kid!

My first pets were a couple of gold fish but maintaining an aquarium is too much work for young kids, and you can't really play with fish so I might say a small rodent is better for little kids. Just have to be sure to set some rules for taking care of the animal and safe play.

Ditto on the dog. Doesn't have to be a Great Dane, but give 'em something that will respond back to them.

I live the way I type, FAST, with a lot of mistakes.

My almost-four-year-old has two imaginary lambs. They're small enough to fit in his hands, and they spend a concerning amount of time standing on the top of my head, high-fiving my feet.
