What do you get for the Tamagotchi lover who has everything? New Original Tamagotchi designs! Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America is giving the virtual pet egg some new looks with three new outer shells in Tama Universe, Memphis Style, and Garden Poppies themes.
Recommended for kids ages 8 and up, the Original Tamagotchi is a digital pet that lives inside an egg-like device meant to take on the go. It features the same Generation 2 programming from the 1997 device, including a numbers game. Kids can feed, nurture, discipline, and play games with their virtual pet to help it grow from a baby to an adult. How players raise their Tamagotchi character will determine which of the seven adults it will grow into.
The Tama Universe design features a purple shell with planets and outer space icons on it, the Memphis Style design features a white shell with colorful abstract graphics, and the Garden Poppies design boasts a blue shell with pink and white flowers.
The three designs are available to preorder on Amazon for $19.99 each with an official release date of March 12. There are also more than 50 other Original Tamagotchi designs to choose from on Amazon.
