1990s electronic pet craze Tamagotchi returns as a mobile app for Android devices

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tamagotchi is re-hatching as an app. Bandai Co and Sync Beatz Entertainment are hoping to revive the electronic pet craze of the 1990s with a new mobile app launching on Thursday for Android devices. The app duplicates the egg-shaped plastic toy that became a must-own sensation like Beanie Babies, Tickle Me Elmo and Furby after it was first released in 1996 in Japan.
