About Tamagotchi Connection:
Simulating the life cycle of an animal, Tamagotchi Connection lets kids experience the fun and responsibility of feeding, tending to and caring for their digital pet. Owners can care for their Tamagotchi by selecting various controls to feed it food or snacks, play games to keep it fit, clean up after its messes, tend to its needs when it becomes sick and turn off the lights when it’s sleeping. The new, advanced technology in Tamagotchi Connection allows the virtual pet to become friends with other Tamagotchi, visit its friends to give gifts or play games, and eventually create new generations.
