Tamagotchi On Logo


Calling all Tama-Lovers! Grab your party hats, confetti, and warm up those vocal cords because today we celebrate the Tamagotchi birthday! That’s right, the OG virtual pet is turning 24!

In honor of this big day, let us take you on a journey to where it all began.

The Rise of the Tamagotchi

After launching in Japan in 1996, the OG virtual pet immediately rose to meteoric popularity and resonated with children and teens growing up in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. I mean, let’s face it, the concept of a virtual pet pulled on the heart strings of both kids AND parents!🤣 

Check out the first ever, Original Tamagotchi device from the ‘90s!

Tamagotchi Today

Fast forward to 2020 and the Tamagotchi brand continues to thrive, showing that virtual pets have not lost their appeal! In fact, with the upgraded technology in the Tamagotchi On devices and the various collaborations (PAC-MAN and Hello Kitty to name a few) there’s a Tamagotchi for everyone!
