Every childhood dream of the 90s is about to come true, because JB HI-FI will soon be selling the classic childhood toys, Tamagotchi.
A Tamagotchi is a digital pet that you keep in your pocket and was released by Bandai in Japan in 1996 and finally made its way to the Australian coasts.
The popularity of the egg-shaped digital pet spread like wildfire to all corners of the world, as more than 82 million models were sold after it was first launched.
Now the retailer relies on the nostalgia of Gen Ys and millennials to boost sales – and their latest version will cost you $ 34.

This classic model has none of the trimmings that other models have developed later, but it offers customers everything they remember from the original version.
As in the days of their youth, owners will have to feed, water and discipline their Tamagotchi to keep it alive.
The toy comes in eight different styles, some of which are the classic that everyone knows and loves, as well as some new ones.
At the time of writing the JB HI-FI message on Facebook announcing the release, more than 5,000 likes and 25,000 responses were collected.

Many commentators could not resist sharing memories of the fact that they had a Tamagotchi as a child.
& # 39; Remember how devastated I was when I was eating soup with my Tamagotchi around my neck on a string and it took a dive? & # 39 ;, a woman said.
& # 39; The only thing I cared about in year 5 was the Tamagotchi that lived around my neck at the end of a safety line. That was my child, & another one said.
Just like in their childhood, owners will have to feed, water and discipline their Tamagotchi to keep it alive
Others said they remember their parents keeping their Tamagotchi alive during the day because they couldn't bring it to school.
Some visited their lunch breaks with their mothers who worked in their school canteen to give their & # 39; baby & # 39; to check.
& # 39; Can't wait to kill my Tamagotchi, while all my friends have real babies, & # 39; said a commentator.

& # 39; Sometimes I just gave up and let it die and restarted it and therefore I would be a terrible mother, & # 39; another said.
Some people who responded to the message voted against the price tag.
& # 39; With $ 34 each, I think I'll stay with my childhood memories for that price, what a rip off! & # 39; said one.
& # 39; Do you want to add a price tag of 90s to it? & # 39; someone else responded.
