The Virtual Pet is back...Tamagotchi returns..

It is hard to believe that it was 17 years ago that the Tamagotchi virtual pet was unleashed into the world by Bandai. Don't remember the Tamagotchi? You need to get out more. Described by manufacturer Bandai: "Tamagotchi is a tiny pet from cyberspace who needs your love to survive and grow. If you take good care of your Tamagotchi pet, it will slowly grow bigger, healthier, and more beautiful every day. But if you neglect your little cyber creature, your Tamagotchi may grow up to be mean or ugly. How old will your Tamagotchi be when it returns to its home planet? What kind of virtual caretaker will you be?"

 The Tamagotchi took the world by storm between 1997-2003, with several version updates and special editions since. By 2010, 76 Million of the egg shaped, virtual alien pets had been sold. And to celebrate the amazing culture the Tamagotchi created and it's birthday, Bandai is updating the line with the Tamagotchi Friends line. Curiously, the line goes on sale December 26th, AFTER everyone has already opened all their presents. Get prepared to feed, play with, love and clean up the virtual poop of your own little adorable space alien again.  This newest edition comes with new characters to raise. Also, when two owners bump their Tamagotchi Friends against each other, their pets can go on play dates, and they can interact in-game. Check them out in EVERY STORE on the planet (almost!), or at their new website HERE!
