So I`ve gotten a few questions about the whole new Tamagotchi thing so I thought I would let you know now that I am not going to be buying one here nor at home. I want you all to know that not buying one is a deliberate decision i am making.

And if you know me you know that I`m always ready to jump on the bandwagon of a new trend like this – I have two tamagotchis from the first time around and really enjoyed them.

But the fact of the matter is, I have been in Japan, interacting with children, for just under two months. And the first time I saw one was last weekend at Toys R Us (they`ve been around here since March). There`s no way they`re cool! If they were, you would see them everywhere – on trains, at camp etc.

So if its not cool enough for the kids here, it`s not cool enough for me. I`ll stick to Kitty-Chan thank you very much.
