Your Boopimal may come fully or partially charged out of the box, but we always recommend that you give her a nice full charge when you first receive her. A hungry Boopimal is a sad Boopimal!
You can charge your Boopimal by plugging her into a USB port on your computer, laptop, or USB hub. She comes with her favourite USB cable in the box, but you can also plug her into one of the older types of phone chargers, if you have one around!
Once your Boopimal is fully charged, press the little round button on her bum to turn her on. She's now ready to be booped!
Every Boopimal is a little bit different, so it may take some time for you to find the best way to boop your new friend. Don't be afraid to try different types of boops - she's soft and smushy and pops right back into shape if you boop her too hard!
You can also boop the table beside her to turn her on and off, or even pick her up and lightly tap her on the base. Your Boopimal is triggered by a motion sensor in her base, which detects light impacts. A gentle touch won't do it, but a boop will!
On the first boop, your Boopimal will glow with a soft warm white glow.
On the second boop, she will glow with a stronger warm white glow.
On the third boop, she will start cycling through all the different colours of the rainbow.
On the fourth boop, she will stop cycling and stay on the colour you've chosen.
When it's time for her to go to sleep, give her one last boop to turn her off. Or, you can just leave her on until until her battery runs out, and give her a fresh charge in the morning.
If you're not using your Boopimal for a while, we recommend turning her off using the button her the base. This helps to keep her battery in good condition, so that she can be your friend for many years to come!
