As a Just Like You Accessory
Coconut was released in 2000 and marketed as a boy. He came with a wicker dog bed with a blue polkadot cushion lining, pretend dog biscuits and a rawhide chew toy for $16.
The next year in 2001, Coconut was marketed as a girl, and sold with a removable collar and leash only. She had been modified to have a magnet near the location of her mouth so that items could be "held" by her. The price of $16 remained the same. This was also the first year dress up sets were released for Coconut.
Licorice was released in 2003 and could share Coconut's clothing and accessories.
Coconut was given another rerelease in 2005. This bundle included a new collar and leash, magnetic tennis ball toy, and a certificate. Cost went up to $19.
Coconut was also available for purchase at bookstores.
In 2009, Coconut was rereleased with a new collar, no leash, and no magnet to hold items. She also was paired up with new pets after Licorice was retired: Ginger, Sugar, and Honey. All four pets came with a collar and pet journal. Coconut's new collar is hot pink and orange, and the cost was increased to $22.
Sugar, Toasty, Ginger, and Praline were retired from the lineup. Chocolate Chip was bundled into the Service Dog Set and made unavailable as an independent purchase.
Items for Coconut
Coconut has several accessory sets that include clothes and headgear to dress her in and play items. Many of these corresponded to various Just Like You outfits. Since 2009, all dress up sets have been retired and Coconut is treated more like a pet than a second character.
Coconut sometimes came bundled at various bookstores with the book Coconut's Guide to Life. This version was originally not sold with a magnet and only with the collar; it now comes with the leash.

- As of 2012, Coconut and her friends have no gender specification so that the owner can decide on the gender of their pet. However, it can be assumed that the pets are females because Sugar, Coconut, and Honey have pink accents such as a collar or bow. Ginger and Praline have a purple collar. Chocolate Chip has an orange collar. Pepper, Toasty, and Meatloaf have blue collars of varying shades.
- As of 2012, Pepper, Chocolate Chip, and Meatloaf are the only pets explicitly identified by AG as males.
