Tamagotchi turns 25 with a nostalgic wearable pet #WearableWednesday
Before tik-tok could fly, Tamagotchi had to crawl. Many millennials got their first dose of digital addiction caring for these ever needy pets. To mark the 25th (😱) anniversiary Bandai is releasing a wearable version.
We knew it was due for a comeback, then it was indeed updated in 2018, then later again. Today, the company marks the anniversary of the original digital pet with the release of the Tamagotchi Smart, a wearable Tamagotchi first announced in June and the next addition to the brand’s dynasty. Here’s the ad from Bandai which gives you a look at the device.
