When I was a kid, I treated my Tamagotchi pets like they were my children — and I still fondly look back on the days when caring for egg-shaped electronic animals was the extent of my worries.
Growing up, I had a pretty extensive collection of the little guys that I brought everywhere with me.
I named them, bragged about them and valued them more than my other (living) pets.
I’m not ashamed, though. I’m sure you treated your toys the same exact way.
