When I first heard that the Tamagotchi was making a come back I wasn’t really surprised. It was after all the favorite virtual pet of the late 90’s. For the past number of years toys from days gone by have been on trend for the holiday season. It’s as if the kids of the 80’s and 90’s now have children of their own or something. Let’s face it, we all want our kids to experience the same magic of our own childhoods. So when a toy company brings our memories into an updated version we are hooked. And the modern children across America can’t complain as they are quite happy with the arrangement. They get fun toys that the parentals have been raving about for years. It’s a win-win for all involved!
Favorite Virtual Pet Tamagotchi
Now I have to admit that I was never the owner of America’s favorite virtual pet. I’m not as young as I seem. Seriously. I was actually in college back in ’97 when these first hit the shelves. But I know there are some Millennials (namely my sister-in-law) who are ECSTATIC with the come back! I also know that my own children are going to love these things. What kid wouldn’t?
