Tamagotchi the UK's number one selling toy in 2005 and 2006 from Bandi has, according to its makers, just got better.

The toy that sees you control and nurture a virtual pet has become Tamagotchi Jinsei, which promises to bring exciting new ways to play with Tamgagotchi.

Now, Tamgotchis don't just grow up, make friends and have babies, they grow up to have fun careers - if they are rasised right.

Of course as before, how you treat them will have an affect on how they turn out.
