from a far-away planet comes a new friend!

Welcome to Evolution!, the TFL-approved fanlisting for Bandai's line of virtual pets that took the world by storm and changed as it did -- to the point of becoming a generic name referring to ANY digital pet, the very addictively cute Tamagotchi! A portmanteau of the Japanese word tamago, "egg", and the English "watch", the first version of the Tamagotchi burst onto the scene in Japan in November 1996, and made its Stateside debut in May 1997, quickly becoming THE must-have toy of the year, and one many of us have warm nostalgic feelings for. If you're a fan of the best in electronic pets, won't you join the fanlisting? ♥

You're viewing version 1 of Evolution!, spring stripes, based on and named after the colour scheme of the "Spring Stripes" shell of the Tamagotchi 2021 re-release, which your webmistress may or may not own herself ♥ It should be able to be viewed on all devices at all resolutions, but if this isn't the case for you, please do take a screenshot and send it to me, and I'll see if I can fix it ASAP!
