I think that many people remember, and most were kept small virtual pets and fed them, watched them grow. I had no Tamagotchi, but several days had the opportunity to care for a dinosaur, unfortunately he had no chance to survive.
I'm so imagined that the characters and Tamagotchi did not die, they have not sat down and the battery did not forget about them master. What if it all the time for them properly cared for and fed, and they became very real family.
How much would they be now?
