I remember when TJ was younger “virtual pets” were just becoming popular. I recall that whenever I went out somewhere I saw kids with them. I thought they were neat and wondered if they were just another passing fad. Here it is ten years later and Tamagotchis are still popular.
Earlier this year Bandai released Tamagotchi Connection V5, the newest version of the virtual pets and the most technologically advanced. The line offers a redesigned look, new characters that have never been seen before and collectible souvenirs that are stored within the toy. The new feature I think is the neatest is that can now raise a family of multiple characters in one toy. The toys still have built in infrared for toys to link up with others. Tamagotchi users can access a virtual world called TamaTown for free, and V5 users have access to the new Tama & Earth Expo. Some of the things visitors to the new area can do are explore foreign areas, learn about the environment, find activities and play games.
Tamagotchi Connection V5 retails for about $14.99 and is labeled for ages 8 and up. For more information about Tamagotchi, please visit www.Tamagotchi.com.
