I decided to create this website for my daughter who is currently hooked on Tamagotchi! I'll be compiling resources about this cute little toy!
The Tamagotchi is a handheld digital pet. It is basically a small, egg-shaped computer with 3 buttons (A, B, and C) which you to select and perform activities such as:
- Playing games
- Cleaning up after the Tamagotchi (yes, poopoo shaped like a Hershey's kiss)
- Disciplining (like a child)
- Checking its age, discipline, hunger, weight, happiness and other stat levels.
- Connecting to the computer
- Connecting with other Tamagotchi
According to Bandai, the manufacturer, Tamagotchi literally translates to "small egg" as it combines:
- the Japanese word tamago which means "egg"
- the Japanese word chi as in chi-chei which means "small"
