won't you take me to TAMAGOTCHI TOWN??
When J10, S8 and M4 went to stay at Aunt Mim's while F and I were gallivanting around Europe last month, they twisted auntie's arm up behind her back to get some Tamagotchis. These little electronic critters can be fed, played with, buy stuff from the shop, and have their poop cleaned up.
You can *visit* each other, and you can even go to... Tamagotchi Town !!!
(and if it "dies" you just programme in another one. M4 was in deep distress yesterday when he accidentally called his new one "Rax" instead of "Rex". We had to go looking for a screwdriver.)
