  • There are eight unnamed Mini Boomers (apart from the two named Mini Boomers above). Each of those talks to you about his or her favorite game that is loosely related to a skill or skill magazine, like ¡La Fantoma!
  • Mini Boomers can be used to increase fame with the Boomer faction in the Malleable Mini Boomer Minds side quest by passing a Charisma check of 7 to go along with their imaginative playing, or by giving them a rocket souvenir or dino toy. It is also possible to taunt the children for negative Karma, for example, one Mini Boomer has aspirations of becoming a boxer; the player can suggest he take Psycho by passing the same Charisma check.
  • One of the children will say "Roar! I'm a Dinosaur" in the voice of a little boy but then says "Okay, See ya!" In the voice of a little girl.
