Were you a fan of those beeping crying, endlessly entertaining Tamagotchi's that were the bane of teachers nationwide? I know I was, but as with all childish things (braces/snap bracelets/platform shoes) I discarded my beloved toy in favour of more adult things. Well now this little toy has got all grown up, with a nifty new makeover which includes an oddly shaped house antenna and a range of new game designs and play for the maternally minded. Yup, your Tamagotchi can now connect with other devices via infra red, and find its soulmate and wed, even create some nice Tamababies for you to keep an eye on. Work on your parenting skills as you manage up to three kids and if it all gets a bit much for you, you can now join the international Tama community online, for tips and tricks on how to look after those pesky kids.
