What is it that makes these new virtual critters the coolest, and cutest things ever?
Well, not only do the Tamagotchi Connection V5 virtual pets still have all the cool features of the V4.5 toys, from games to gifts, connecting to your friends and hooking up to Tama Town.com, they also have an entire Tamagotchi family inside them!
The new Tamagotchi family mode is called Familitchi and puts three to five Tamagotchi, including kids, together.
As self-appointed arbiters of what's in and what's out, it is our sworn duty to inform you that Tamagotchi Familitchi are going to be the most sought after electronic gizmos since…well, since all the other waves of Tamagotchi. Tamagotchi Familitchi are shipped in random colours so we cannot guarantee which colour of Tamagotchi you will receive.
And that, dear friends, is exactly why you should get ordering immediately. Unfortunately we are unable to offer a colour choice with this product.
Tamagotchi fans get ready: In January 2008 there's a new kind of Tamagotchi on the way - the Tamagotchi Connection V5 virtual pet!
Just as we predicted, the Noughties relaunch of Tamagotchi has been a rip-roaring success.
So say konichiwa to Tamagotchi Familitchi, an all new wave of the world's favourite handheld virtual pets.
For anyone who's spent the past twenty years with their head submerged in porridge, Tamagotchi (Japanese for lovable egg) are pocket-sized electronic gizmos containing an animated pet that 'lives' on a little screen. ) owners hatch and then raise their pet by pressing buttons throughout the day.
The more your Tamagotchi matures the more games you can play and the more areas of Tamagotchi Town you can visit on the web.
You can even travel to foreign destinations, visit your Tamagotchi parents and meet the Tamagotchi King! What you probably don't know is that you can now raise up to three family members on one screen. Just like the last wave of Tamagotchi these smart units allow your pets to interact with other Tamagotchi via a nifty infra-red connection.
And depending on how you raise your pixellated pals you can generate seven fun families. What's more there are four new mini games, 65 characters and loads of fun animations.
We'll even throw in a bonus Tamagotchi mini keychain mascot.
Online content: As if that wasn't enough you can also access new passwords in Tamagotchi Town and earn Gotchi points to shop for special virtual items (food, travel tickets, toys, make-up, clothes etc).
