Tamagotchi is back in app form

Tamagotchis were the hottest craze when they were introduced to shelves in 1997. The game is back in action with the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app which was released this past winter.

The hand held digital pet was created in Japan in 1996. According to Wikipedia, as of 2010, over 76 million Tamagotchis have been sold world-wide. 

If you were feeling deprived of your favorite childhood game, fear not. Tamagotchis are back in action at the App Store. The Tamagotchi L.i.f.e app is available as a free download for iPad or iPhone.

I personally never had one, but I remember Tamagotchis being such a huge craze that teachers would have to take them from students because so many students would play with them in class.
