Earlier this year, '90s kids were hit with a bittersweet news: Tamagotchi was making a comeback... in Japan... ONLY.
Lucky for us and because dreams come true, the original Tamagotchi is now making a comeback in the United States, celebrating its 20th anniversary.
“For many Generation X kids, the Tamagotchi device can be considered America’s first and favorite digital pet,” said Tara Badie, marketing director for Bandai America in a press statement. “The enduring power of Tamagotchi is its clear expression that nurturing and love never goes out of style. It’s such an honor to bring back one of the most beloved toys in a way that captures the magic and joy of a generation while embracing the sensibilities of new generations.”
For those non-millennial kids, this small gadget released in 1997 entailed of a digital pet that you had to feed, clean after, play with, and put to sleep.
