Calling all 90s kids! Classic virtual pet Tamagotchi is back with a limited edition release on its 20th anniversary!

Originally launched worldwide in 1997, these portable pet keychains were a hit with kids the world over as they had a first dose of responsibility without the risk of actually killing something.

Now, they’re back and I am so ready for virtual pet responsibilities (because smartphone pet apps just don’t do it for me).

Tamagotchi is back in 6 styles

The 2017 Tamagotchis comes in six styles and they’ll be smaller, simplified versions of the original ones.  Pre-orders for the cute devices start today with November 5 pegged as the release date.

Tamagotchi re-releases aren’t particularly new since they’d been in Japan earlier this year, but it doesn’t make it less exciting.
