Have you every heard of this?

I have to admit, this is a part of pop culture that I was never aware of.

“The Tamagotchi (たまごっち, IPA: [tamaɡotꜜtɕi]) is a handheld digital pet that was created in Japan by Akihiro Yokoi of WiZ and Aki Maita of Bandai. It was released by Bandai on November 23, 1996 in Japan and on May 1, 1997 in the rest of the world, quickly becoming one of the biggest toy fads of the late 1990s and the early 2000s.”

Just as crazy as a lucky rabbit foot.  Remember those on a key chain and fur dyed? Or maybe the fur was fake. That was a 1960's fad. Even as a kid, I was abit creeped out by that.

Our youngest daughter had one. Not quite sure of all the details, but she or one of her friends found one in storage and it was still "alive"!  They were talking about it on social media. I guess there is an app you could move the "life" to and care for it there if I understood correctly.
