Did you own a Tamagotchi back in the day? Did you diligently remember to feed it before they bleeped themselves to death?
Vtech have put together KidiPet Touch, a range of electronic pets that could re ignite the Tamagotchi flame all over again.
This new techy range is aimed at children aged 4 and over and comes in three colours
- Blue – Dog Version
- Pink – Kitten Version
- Orange – Pony Version
Just like the original the new Vtech KidiPet Touch has a central touch screen that shows your chosen pet and its mood.
You can interact with your KidiPet by feeding them and playing games etc; and by twisting the ring on the outside of the screen your pet can visit any one of six locations – including the vet!
Unlike the original Tamagotchi , the Vtech KidiPet helps teach children simple maths and how to stick to a budget by earning coins which they earn by treating their pet well and playing games with them. These coins can then be used to buy food for your pet.
A sensor situated on the edge of each KidiPet allows them to communicate with each other (which makes them happier) and a built in microphone allows children to train their pets to perform tricks.
Ideal size for little hands, will these be the Tamagotchi of 2013?
