Because everything old is new again. Welcome back, 1990’s, welcome back.
If you remember how much you loved your Tamagotchi from yesteryear, well, your kiddos are going to love this new release so much more. Truth be told, we love it so much more too! Introducing the brand new Tamagotchi On. Your My Tama is about to do all sorts of things it could never do before. Here’s everything we know so far!
What is Tamagotchi On Actually All About?
Back just in time for the upcoming holidays there are currently 4 different ones you can collect, nurture, and love.
These are so much cooler than the ones we had because, first off, they’re bluetooth enabled and can connect to their free app where they can get even more characters, play a ton of games, earn points, get ‘married’ and so much more! Each of these must-have virtual pets needs to be totally taken care of. Your kiddos will have to feed them, clean up after them, help your My Tama make all sorts of new friends, get a TamaPet, travel around, go on shopping sprees, and so much more!
This time around you’ll also have to get him or her married so they can start building their family tree. Once married, your My Tama is suddenly born and the real fun will begin! What’s cool about your new My Tama is that is can look like both its mom and dad. Whose features will it get is totally part of the fun surprise.
What Does the App Do?
If you decide you want your kiddos to download the app, it can do all sorts of fun things like enable them to:
- Connect with other Tamagotchi friends and go on play-dates.
- Give gifts to others.
- Play all sorts of fun games.
- Earn points to buy food, accessories, and other cool items.
- Get married, meet up with other friends, and so much more!
How Much Will It Cost?
Great question. This one is a bit more of an investment but, honestly, is going to provide them with months upon months of fun. The suggested retail price is $59.99.
When is the Release Date?
Just in time for the hunt prior to the holidays, the official release date of the Tamagotchi On is August 15, 2019.

If you’re looking for some of the older Tamagotchi’s from last year, read on!
That’s right, you heard correctly. Your ‘favorite’ toy from the 90’s, Tamagotchi, is officially back and is already almost impossible to find and buy online. Go figure! They’re coming up on their 20th anniversary so the company, Bandai, thought it made sense to re-release these little interactive pets into the wild. But this time, they’re a bit new and improved and, more importantly, they’re going to be sold right here in the good old USA!
From what we now know, you can by these new Tamagotchi Friends in 6 different varieties. But don’t worry, they’re still the classic egg-shaped keychains… although they are a little bit smaller than the originals. And, well, they’re much easier to keep alive since this time around since you only have to feed them and keep them clean for the most part. The old days of disciplining them Judge Judy style is a thing of the past. We’re relieved because we were never really sure how to do that anyway. Plus, they’re still little pixilated blobs that really give it that retro feeling we’re all longing for. Your kids will be confused by the lack of sophistication at first but, let’s be real, if they’re ok with Minecraft this will be right up their alley.
Here’s everything you can do with the new Tamagotchi Friends:
- Feed them (give them treats until they’re full)
- Clean them (you literally have to clean up their poop on the screen – goodbye stink marks!)
- Care for them (show them some love so they don’t die!)
- Carry them around with you (they can work on your keychain or belt loop just like in the 90s)
- They’ll give you that much-need nostalgic feeling and you don’t have to worry about connecting them to an app, your smartphone, or bluetooth anything because that’s not part of this at all! #ThanksSimplerTimes
