Tamagotchi is the childhood of many ’90s and even early 2000s kids. Many years later, it remains a reminder of a time much simpler than today.
Two years after its official re-release, the iconic digital pet is presenting itself in another form: a heat-sensitive and color-changing mug.
In a now-viral tweet of Tamagotchi Mom, the virtual pet—who first burst into the toy realm back in 1997—looks as if it wakes up and eats when you pour a hot beverage into the mug.

Aptly named “Feed Me Heat Mug,” the officially licensed Tamagotchi product features the classic egg-shaped design, pixelated LCD charm, and the recurring need for TLC via your hot coffee or cocoa.
Netizens quickly took to Twitter to express their nostalgic feelings over the discovery.
*grabby nostalgia hands*

The mug is available online for $19.99 or around P1042.56, with free shipping for most countries.
Will you purchase this mug for yourself?
