For a child, Tamagotchis & Giga Pets were more than enough responsibility. They needed to be fed, have play time, be cleaned up after, punished, praised, et cetera. Essentially, this was the preview to the movie for all of the girls and boys who now have babies. While care is required to maintain good health for one of these toys, real children are a whole new ball game. See, digital poop and virtual tears on an electronic toy can be turned off or thrown to the bottom of a toy chest but real kids require a little more care — unfortunately, some of the parents I’ve seen in action didn’t get that memo.
