The Tamagotchi V5 is the newest virtual pet toy from Bandai. I remember when these first became popular when my oldest child was just a baby. She was too young to play but I remember my younger cousins LOVED them. Well, the kids still love them.
In this new and improved version, you can raise a whole family instead of just one character – with new characters from previous versions! How kids raise their Tamagotchi family with differing personalities, taste, and hobbies will help determine what their character grows up to be – a celebrity, model, athlete, paparazzi or a royal family! You can link to other users with its infrared technology. Users also have online access to TamaTown. My children also enjoyed playing the games on the CD included with the Tamagotchi V5.
To get started, you name your family who starts as eggs. After they hatch, you feed them, clean them, play with, entertain, help to meet friends, and MORE! When your family needs something, it beeps to let you know! (ha, ha, just like in real life!
They recommend this for children Ages 8 and up. My 4 year old enjoyed it with help from me. It is small enough to fit in your pocket so you always can have it when your pet needs to be fed! They retail for around $14.99.
