ICYMI, ’90s nostalgia is definitely having a moment. The latest blast from the past? The return of Tamagotchis. The virtual-pet keychain that originally came out more than two decades ago (yep, we feel old, too) is now available again at Target, Walmart, Amazon and more.
For those of us who need a reminder, Tamagotchis are basically two-inch, battery-operated keychains that you treat like a living pet via a series of digital actions. You know, feeding it when it’s hungry, comforting it when it’s sad, picking up its virtual poop… (Yeah, digital animal ownership isn’t for everyone.)
For a retail price of $20, you can now relive your high school days via the tiny chirps of your hungry Nyorotchi. Because we all need another distraction in our lives, right?
