Tamagotchi and other awesome 90s toys that we miss!
For its 20th anniversary, toy maker Bandai is re-releasing its iconic 90s gadget that became the hit go-to fad in the school playground back then – yes, we’re talking about Tamagotchi, the handheld digital pet, which was one of the biggest toy fads of the 1990s and early 2000s.
However, there are catches. The re-release will be just slightly smaller than the 90s version, and it's only being released in Japan for JPY1,900 yen (USD22).
Released in 1996, the Tamagotchi game begins with an egg hatching into a character that players must look after through tasks like feeding it and cleaning up its droppings. Also, it will die if the tasks are neglected – how dramatic!
Do you remember some other nostalgic toys that were the craze in the 80s and 90s?
Here are some that we remember.
