Tamagotchi was one of the coolest childhood gadgets any child could have in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The digital device shaped like an egg housed a virtual pet that the owner was tasked to take care of.

So nostalgic.

Tamagotchi On

After more than 20 years, new Tamagotchi devices called Tamagotchi On have been announced -- in four colours with a coloured screen, no less.

The Tamagotchi egg case comes in Fairy blue, Fairy pink, Magic purple and Magic green.
