1. Plug your Pixel Chix™ car into your Pixel Chix™ House (making sure that one does not depress any of the buttons on either component.) This will trigger the Pixel Chix™ Pal in the car to disappear. 2. Push the any button on the Pixel Chix™ car. Once a button on the car is pressed, your Pixel Chix™ Pal in the house will open the door, close the door behind her and say “Bye”. The lights in the house will go out as if she is not home. Footsteps will sound and the Pixel Chix™ Pal will be seen approaching the car. She will get into the car, shut the door, put on her seatbelt and say, “Let’s go!” Please note the software does not have the ability to change the pals’ hair in either the house or the car, therefore should you have a Pixel Chix™House with a blond haired Pal, and a Pixel Chix™Car with a brunette, as the blond Pal leaves the house and enters the car, the Pal’s hair will change from blond to brunette. 3. Disconnect car from house and begin to play with car. The house will remain asleep until a button is pressed on it. Please note that normal play on the car will begin even if car is still connected to house. While the Pixel Chix™ Car is in play mode and connected to the house, you should avoid pressing any buttons on the house. Pressing buttons on the house will activate the house and negate the activities in the car.
When the Pixel Chix house is not connected to the Pixel Chix Car, the two components will operate independently. When the Pixel Chix Car is plugged into the Pixel Chix House your Pixel Chix Pal that was in the car will disappear. At this point, the car and the house know that they are plugged together and are waiting for input from the user. The Pixel Chix Pal that was in the house continues to inhabit the house, but now owns the car and can leave the house to go for a ride in the Pixel Chix Car.
Note: that buttons on the house will be disabled as soon as the car is connected to the house.
The software does not have the ability to change the Pals’ hair in either the house or the car, therefore should you have a Pixel Chix™ House with a blond haired Pal and a Pixel Chix™ Car with a brunette, as the blond Pal leaves the house and enters the car, the Pal’s hair will change from blond to brunette.
As you nurture your Pixel Chix™ Pal, you will move up to higher levels of play. As you reach a new level of play, your Pixel Chix pal will appear in a puff of smoke, trumpet fan fare will play and she will yell, “Whoo-Hoo!” With each new level, you get more fashions, more food, more places to go and more games to play. The more you play with your Pixel Chix pal the faster you will get to each new level. As you neglect your Pixel Chix™ Pal, she will show attitude and you will go down in levels of play. If you continue to ignore your pal, she will leave her home and you will have to reset your Pixel Chix™ House. You can reset your house by looking at the back of the component above the slot on the bottom left hand corner, and using a pen or pencil to press the reset button. This will start play gain at level one. Be sure to pay attention to her! Below is an outline of the additional activities that become available as the game progresses and new levels are reached: Level One: • Clothing options: Night Gown School Girl Trendy • Game options: Phone TV • Food options: Bowl of soup Submarine Sandwich popcorn • Places to go: School
Level Two (in addition to above options): • Clothing options: Work-out Swim Suit • Game options: Magic 8-Ball Fish bowl • Food options: Banana Soda • Places to go: Beach Gym Level Three (in addition to all above options): • Clothing option: Rain Coat • Game option: Dog Cat Radio • Food option: Chicken leg Hamburger • Places to go: Out in the Rain/Storm

Level Five (in addition to all above options): • Clothing option: Tutu Party • Game option: Roller blades Karaoke machine • Food option: Orders out for pizza • Places to go: Dance Recital Date
The Pixel Chix Car™ does not have levels of play. At any point (being played with independently or with your Pixel Chix House™ ), the Pixel Chix Car™ will maintain at the same level of play with the same amount of activities.
To play with the Pixel Chix™ Pal in the house, the Pixel Chix™ Car should be unplugged. Leaving the car and house connected while playing with the Pixel Chix™ House will prevent the Pixel Chix™ Pal from responding as intended. House buttons are disabled when car is plugged in.
If you connect a Pixel Chix Love to Shop Mall™ to a Pixel Chix Car™, the only play that will occur between the two toys is for the pal to leave the Pixel Chix Love to Shop Mall™ and enter the Pixel Chix Car™. The Pixel Chix™ pal in the car WILL NOT BE ABLE to leave the car and enter the Pixel Chix Love to Shop Mall™.
To have the pal leave the Pixel Chix Love to Shop Mall™ and enter the Pixel Chix Car™, be sure they are firmly connected and press any button on the car. Note: The hair color of the Pixel Chix Love to Shop Mall™ pal leaving the Pixel Chix Love to Shop Mall ™ may change to match the color of the Pixel Chix Love to Shop Mall™ pal who lives in the car.
This is simply an aspect of design in the toy. The idea is that only one Pixel Chix™ pal can work or shop in each store at a time, so when one Pixel Chix Love to Shop Mall™ pal comes to work or shop, the other is taking a break.
The main goal of play in the Pixel Chix™ Love to Shop Mall™ is to work and earn money, and then use the money to buy fun things. Each Pixel Chix™ pal can work and shop in any of the 4 available stores. Every time you buy a new item, you unlock new animations/games that will play when you select that item in the money/stuff screen. There are also games that you can play with your Pixel Chix™ Love to Shop Mall™ pal just for fun while she is shopping. These games can be played by pushing the smiley-face button (fun button) while shopping in any store.
