The OG Tamagotchi Is Getting Re-Released So We Can Re-Live Our ‘90s Dream

1 min read

And redeem our pet-parenting skills. 

There are bad dreams and teenage dreams and wet dreams. But the best dreams of all, if you ask us (which you’re probably not), are ‘90s dreams. 

Now, don’t give us that look! Don’t be judging. Just think about it for a second. 

The 1990s were THE time to be alive. There was double denim and the Backstreet Boys AND S Club 7 and The Spice Girls and Butterfly Clips and stick on earrings and Gameboys and Furbies and you get the idea. There were lots of cool things. 

Now one of those cool things is getting re-released: Tamagotchi. 

That’s right, the OG ‘90s virtual pet is coming back in its original colours and style. 

A remake of the original 1997 Tamagotchi was released late last year, and JB-Hi-Fi has announced the beloved toy will be making another return in July this year. 

The first-generation re-releases come in a variety of colours and styles, including Unicorn, Red Glitter, Galaxy, Blue Silver and Mermaid. 

They’re selling for $34 which is a little pricy for a plastic pet we’re probably going to neglect. But you can bet we’re going to spend the money on it anyway. 

We might even buy all seven colours.
