What's Tamagotchi Actually All About?
If you’re completely new to this (and slept through the 90s), Tamagotchi is actually a really fun handheld digital pet that was first released by the Japanese toy company Bandai way back in 1996 (pre Y2K!).
The Tamagotchi is a small, egg-shaped device that has a small monochrome screen and typically just three buttons. When you turn it on, an egg appears on the screen, which hatches into a virtual pet. Yes, that virtual pet.
Your cute little pet needs to be fully taken care of, like needing to be fed, cleaned, and played with in order to keep it healthy and happy. If the pet is neglected or mistreated, it will become sick and eventually die. Yep, that’s a real thing.
There are various types of Tamagotchi pets, each with their own unique look and personality. For example, there are pets that look like cats, dogs, birds, and even dinosaurs. Some Tamagotchis also have special abilities or features, such as the ability to connect to other Tamagotchi devices and play games or exchange items.
The Tamagotchi craze was so popular in the late 1990s that it led to a variety of merchandise, including clothing, accessories, and even a cartoon series. The toy was also updated over the years, with new versions featuring color screens, more advanced gameplay, and additional features. We’re going to get into all the newbies below.
Today, the Tamagotchi is still available for purchase and remains a popular toy among children and adults alike. It is considered a classic toy of the 1990s and is often viewed as a nostalgic item by those who grew up with it.
