If you grew up in the 90's you might remember the Tamagotchi - a virtual pocket pet. It quickly became one of the hottest toys to have. As of 2010, the company had sold over 76 million units worldwide.

Now they are coming back!

In celebration of the Tamagotchi’s 20th anniversary Japanese toymaker Bandai has released an almost to the tee replica of the original. At the moment, they sell on Amazon Japan for 2,000 yen or $18.

You no longer have to worry about paying $130 for an original device, but keep checking Amazon (America) for it to be available here in the states.

The newer version will be half the size of the original and will have the same six original characters. So, here is your chance to relieve your childhood once again and this time, make sure your virtual pet doesn't die!
