Tamagotchis are back, and... furry

Furry Tamagotchis

The Japanese have a way of introducing, and continually re-reviving, nauseatingly cute phenomena that will not die. The next wave may be (though we hope it's not…) the Tamagotchi, who keeps evolving in the hopes of seeking out new life forms and new civilizations, or at least replace the already dead virtual pets in the households on the life forms it's already touched (soiled?). In this incarnation, the tiny needy gadgets have gotten a coat of fur. Other than that, they appear to be maddenly identical to their shorn counterparts of yore. They'll sell like hotcakes.
