Each season brings us new styles and outfits. You don’t wear the same things in the winter that you do in the fall, so neither should your Tamagotchi! Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America has dropped three new designs to keep collections fresh this winter. 

Designed for kids ages 8 and up, the Tamagotchi is an on-the-go, egg-shaped toy that kids can use to raise and play with their own virtual pet. As kids feed, nurture, and discipline their Tamagotchi, their decisions will impact which adult their Tamagotchi grows into. 

The new shells include a denim-style look with iron-on patches, a pink-and-black striped shell with Tamagotchi written in English and Japanese, and a punchy “Mimitchi Comic Book” pattern. The Japanese Ribbon and Denim Patches designs are both Generation 1, while the Mimitchi Comic Book shell is Generation 2. With more than 40 designs in Bandai Namco’s Tamagotchi collection, there’s a design (or three) for everyone!

If you’re looking for more than a visual upgrade, Bandai Namco also dropped a new Amazon-exclusive Tamagotchi. The Tamagotchi Original Celebration has a translucent rainbow shell and neon yellow frame and buttons. The Tamagotchi also has two neon yellow exclusive charms and includes an exclusive character game in which players can guess which direction their virtual pet will go. The Tamagotchi Celebration is now available for preorder for $25 and is expected to ship on Feb. 2.
