The original tamagotchi is back
Calling all 90's kids...
20 years since the original release, the original Tamagotchi is back!! Bandai, the Japanese Toy manufacturer has re-released the first edition of the Tamagotchi (Including all six original pet characters). The egg shaped toy resembles its former self but has shrunk to half the size of the original.
If somehow you managed to miss the hype growing up or you were born in the 'noughties', Tamagotchis are simply digital pets. The users have to keep these digital pets alive by completing daily tasks such as feeding them. Although, it may seem trivial, these toys are highly addictive and very hard to keep alive.
The newly released Tamagotchi is retailing at $13.55 but at the moment, it is only available in stores in Japan. If you can't wait to get your hands on one, you can buy one for a slightly marked up price ( $17.36 ) on Amazon Japan. Happy Gaming!
