My Old Toy: Tamagochi

I owned one...

I remember when I was small, I love playing with my Tamagochi.

The Tamagotchi (たまごっち Tamagotchi) is a handheld digital pet, created in Japan by Akihiro Yokoi of WiZ and Aki Maita of Bandai. It was first sold by Bandai in 1996 in Japan. As of 2010, over 76 million Tamagotchis have been sold world-wide. Most Tamagotchis are housed in a small egg-shaped computer with an interface usually consisting of three buttons, although the number of buttons may vary for different variations.

Ok, so 1996, I am not so young then but sure I am small. LOL!

I remember I had a Dinosaur Tamagochi, I bought it for I think about Php1,000+. A toy like that in year 1996 is expensive.

Tamagochi is a virtual pet that you need to feed, clean and play with so it won't run away or die.

Today, there is a newer version of Tamagochi and it's called LITTLEST PET SHOP Handheld Toys. And my daughter owned 2:

It's my baby's old toy, in fact she is not playing with these anymore. Well, I can't blame her she's 15 for pete's sake! LOL!

How about you Cute-rs what is your old favorite toy?
