The 2020 Tamagotchi
Marc Gordon - July 1, 2020

Summer is officially here, and it’s the very perfect time for your nostalgia to peak more than ever before. And that’s mainly because a brand new Tamagotchi is being released by Bandai America. Yes, we know that you’re going crazy right now (we are too, honestly), and can’t believe your eyes that a Tamagotchi has actually been released in 2020, just when you thought this year couldn’t possibly surprise us anymore.  You’ll also surely be thrilled to know that while this new version will of course have some exciting modern updates, it will still without a doubt contain the nostalgic goodness that we’re all familiar with and forever appreciate. 


Just like the original version from our childhood days (sold at Target), you’ll still be able to take care of your tiny battery powered pet by playing with it and feeding it through the simplicity of pressing a few buttons. The 2020 version however also now offers the options of a library and dressmaker for your Tamagotchi.  The new toy is known as Tamagotchi on Wonder Garden, and that’s because your pet has also been given a modern update to its land, allowing the two of you to explore more than ever before.  It’s a truly unforgettable experience that will take you back to the good old days within seconds, while still feeling like a grown-up. 

The all-new toy is available in two unique colors, lavender and turquoise, and we will surely be getting one of each as soon as they’re available for purchase.  Pre-sales can be made through a few super-stores online including Walmart, Target, Amazon, and GameStop, and will be available for official sale as of July 26th. We’re counting down the days already! Our love and appreciation for Tamagotchi has been strong since the ‘90s and is still definitely here to stay.
