The '90s Are Officially Back! Tamagotchi ls Making a Comeback @balleralert The ‘90s Are Officially Back! Tamagotchi Is Making a Comeback - blogged by @miss_binky ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Look around Everywhere you go it’s pretty obvious – the 90s are back and in full effect So for a generation that’s re-embracing Tommy Hilfiger FILA and Super Nintendo it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear that the Tamagotchi is making a comeback too ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s right the Japanese “virtual pet” will hit store shelves again in November just in time for the holidays Originally released in 1997 the toy had millions of kids addicted to feeding and cleaning up the poop of a pixelated “pet” and drove parents and teachers alike crazy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surprisingly the re-release of the Tamagotchi will not have any real tech upgrades The only difference between the 2017 and 1997 version is that it will be about 20% smaller Bandai America the company behind the toy is banking on the love of nostalgia to fuel sales of the virtual pet ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to marketing director Tara Badie “For many Generation X kids the Tamagotchi device can be considered America’s first and favorite digital pet The enduring power of Tamagotchi is its clear expression that nurturing and love never goes out of style” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So the question is will kids raised on smartphones and iPads see the allure in a colorless pixelated blob the same we we did in the 90s?
