The realm of liquid crystal creatures, somewhat cheaper than the more tangible interactive robots only an Arab sheik could afford, is just a step beyond. Tamagotchi was created toward the end of the nineties, under the laudable pretext of educating children about the responsibilities of taking care of people (although it isn’t even a thing). The toy is as charming as it is absurd. And in its early versions it caused a great deal of controversy. Instead of making kids more responsible, the Tamagotchi just generated a lot of unnecessary stress.

The little creature that lives in these plastic eggs needs to be regularly fed and washed, played with, and appropriately rewarded… And all this at any time of the day or night. If you do a good job, the little character grows up to be cute and friendly… But if you just leave it at God’s mercy, it becomes a dirty, repulsive and terrifying little monster that won’t stop harassing you until it finally kicks the bucket like a noisy brat. It’s easy to see how this might overwhelm and traumatize a child. Their schedules were also messed up from taking care of their Tamagotchis and chaos soon reigned in the schools.

To avoid even graver perils the toy’s newer versions (V5), haven’t just added more characters- the Familitchi- they can also be put on pause and left on silent mode. Another improvement is that the creature we raise now has a longer life, so it can go to school and even look for work...

Nintendogs made for Nintendo DS are a little more consistent with the realities of life. They’re the perfect gift for only children and other beings condemned to solitude. You adopt a virtual dog, part of some wonderful breed, and then raise it and train it as best you can. If you don’t take proper care of it, the dog doesn’t die, it just runs away and forgets all about you.
