THE TAMAGOTCHI IS BACK

by: Catalog

Back in the '90s, were you one of those kids who weren't allowed to have a pet dog, cat, or even fish? Chances are, the only pet you ever had was the Tamagotchi — which wasn't really a bad thing since pretty much everyone had one (or two) and it gave all of us a taste of responsibility without the guilt.

THE TAMAGOTCHI IS BACK

First launched in Japan in 1996, and then taking the whole world by storm a year later, the Tamagotchi is back in time for its 20th anniversary! If you want a piece of childhood nostalgia, now's your chance with all six characters re-issued in a smaller sized version.

But before you head out in search for one, just a head's up: It's only available in Japan at the moment, so you might want to ask a friend in town to take a break from all the Hanami festivities to hunt one down for you.


If you can't get anyone in Japan to get one for you, you can purchase it from Amazon Japan here
