The Tamagotchi virtual pet is back for 2019

Children of the nineties – we have some good news.

The Tamagotchi is back.

Yes, that’s right, you can have a little virtual pet in your pocket once again – perfect for the millennial flat share where there’s no room for an actual cuddly cat or dog.

Oh the nostalgia of desperately trying to keep those tiny pixels alive.

23 years on from the launch of Japanese company Bandai’s original invention, a new range for 2019 has been released.

The brand released a 20th anniversary edition in 2017 but the new range for this year is widely available in the UK.

And as technology has come pretty far since the 90s, life had improved for the digital pets, who can now go on playdates and get married. And you can see them in colour.

Of course, if you are wanting to relive your childhood, you are probably now a fully-grown adult with a job and responsibilities so you can send your pet to a hotel where they’ll keep it alive for you.

It still comes in the egg shape, with tiny buttons and a key chain – though you’re much more likely to have keys to attach it to these days.

The 2019 range comes in a range of colours and varies in price depending on the design.

You can pick up an original translucent blue one for £18.88, the lowest price, but the highest price one in the range is the tiger print, which costs £35.

The 20th anniversary range is also available from The Entertainer Toyshop for £10.

Now, go out and welcome the new addition to your family.
