We got one each. Tabatha got a pink girl. Kelly got a blue boy.
For starters, they can now communicate.
The new models allow you to “bump” two Tamagotchis together. This involves holding them back-to-back so they can give each other presents, hang out in the same screen and text each other.
This meant our Tamagotchis went to the park together. OMG.
1. We encountered our first problem when our Tamagotchi eggs hatched.
Tabatha’s turned into a girl. Kelly’s turned into a duck. Not wanting to be set back, we abandoned hope of ever having grandchildren and just prayed that a girl could fall in love with a duck.
“Never mind,” we thought, feeding them their 95th loaves of bread. “We’ll just head to the pub.”
4. No matter how much we fed them or took them to the park, they were never happy.
We thought maybe they just wanted to be together.
So Kelly’s Tamagotchi jumped on the bus to Tabatha’s Tamagotchi’s house.
5. The next morning, when we crawled out of bed hungover, our Tamagotchis were starving.
And lonely. And bored. And they really needed the loo.
We played games with them to make them happier.
But it wasn’t enough. Or rather, we got bored too soon. By this time, things were pretty bad.
