To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Tamagotchi, a Japanese brand has recreated a spot-on replica of the weird-yet-amazing toy. This version has all of the features you knew and loved, but the device is slightly smaller than the original. Go buy one and see if two decades of passing time have made you any more responsible. Seriously, though. Those things are SO needy!
