Need any help aging yourself? What if we told you Tamagotchi is turning 25? The little digital pet is all grown up now and the brand is celebrating the big anniversary with a fun throwback product.
If you’re an older Millennial, odds are high that you owned a Tamagotchi in 1997. It was a must-have toy and countless kids sported the little plastic egg on a keychain. While the gameplay was deceptively easy: feeding, playing with or cleaning up after your little pet, the Tamagotchi were surprisingly hard to master. And yes, they definitely contributed to a lot of split attention spans in the classroom or on the practice field.
