Hey ’90s kids, your prayers have been answered: Tamagotchi are back

Don't let it starve to death (again).

Pour yourself a can of Surge, slip on a jean jacket only Uncle Jesse would love and relive some monster raising nostalgia with Tamagotchi.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Tamagotchi is coming back for a limited run. Hatch your very own digital egg and raise it into a cute and well-behaved monster. Feed it! Play with it! Clean its poop! Scold it when it’s naughty.

Yes, monster rearing can be quite a chore sometimes, but it’s rewarding when done right. Plus, you can make up for all those Tamagotchi from your childhood who died buried in their own poop. I can’t be the only one with digital blood on my hands.

This round of Tamagotchi is available in six colors on Amazon starting at $25.
