There wasn't any fun parts. Like Tails said, it was mostly a status symbol and a fad.

A shame it died down, though. It was an excellent didactic tool for teaching responsibility and such. Cheaper than buying some of those baby dolls that cry and wet their diapers, right? Not that we use those here.

I got one of those stupid electronic pets my first semester in college. It starved to death because it wanted to eat early in the morning, and I wasn't going to get up and feed it. I turned the sound off before I went to bed because it would wake me and my roommate up.

I hated it.

On one hand, you could have just bought a goldfish.

On the other hand, you probably would have starved the goldfish to death.

I wanted a tamagotchi but that sort of thing wasn't allowed in my household.

I built some random thing out of an LED, an old cigarette lighter and various other parts and pretended that was one, instead. Yay, imagination.

I lost a goldfish that way in college to a roommate Smiley: frown

Goodbye, nameless five cent feeder goldfish I originally bought for an art project...

Smiley: dubious

In an age where adult males proudly admit to being fans of Pokémon and My Little Pony, having a digital pet in 8th grade just seems a bit of a stretch?

Fair enough. I guess I'm just looking at it how I viewed that in 8th grade. I was probably making fun of those people. Hope I didn't emotionally scar anyone.

Today, yeah, but today we've got mp3-players that could hold entire Tamagotchi civilizations on even the smallest of flash drives. Back then, though... man, was it hi-tech. A video game -- well, sort of -- that could fit on a key chain. It was amazing. And it was just like a real pet.

Not many people realize it, but a lot of people from my generation learned how to take care of pets and babies by having a Tamagotchi. Which, thinking about how many Tamagotchis that died, is slightly frightening.

I had a goldfish on my computer screen; it swam around and you could feed it. Best pet ever.

You do remember that when I was in 8th grade, it's entirely likely you weren't even alive, right?

If I wasn't alive, how could I possibly remember it?

It's also possible that in my old age, my memory is failing me and these weren't even around when I was in 8th grade...

Yeah, freaking everybody had those things... It was mostly a girl thing, but there was quite a few of the popular guys who had them too. I actually kind of want to get another one, so I could actually get to experience what it's like to have one for longer than a week lol.

If we take our time, and we stick together, everything we do, will go our way. And if we try, now and forever, no matter what comes next, we'll be okay.

In 8th grade I was more concerned with finding the widest-leg JNCOs I could. I didn't have a digi-pet or whatever.

I would save up to buy new pairs. They were so expensive, too.

I don't remember the entirety of my 8th grade.

Dissociative Amnesia is cool like that. Also, I didn't like to bring it up in the happy baby thread, but I was totally a rape baby. Sadly I cannot comment on tamagotchis. AFAIK I've never seen one. However, I'm the only person I know who has never EVER killed a sim. I still don't get why people do that. It's inexplicable. O_o?

You're not the only one Ari, I don't get it either. I know it's just pixels, but I don't see what's fun about killing them off.
