Yuruppy By Takara Tomy – The Strokable Touchscreen Pet
Were you guilty of watching your Tamagotchis die?
Did you go for the upgraded everlasting colour version?
Well I think you may want to put it down (not in the sense of killing it! Just to one side) as Takara Tomy brings you the Yuruppy.
The Yuruppy isÂ a virtual pet that lives inside a small touchscreen.
You get to choose from a puppy, a kitten and a chicken(!?).
All you have to do then is pet them by rubbing their fingers on the screen – no other care required!
Takara Tomy has also thrown in 14 mini games.
Japan is naturally the first port-of-call for the Yuruppy and it will hit the stores in June – no doubt other countries will then get the touch-pet later.
The standard version will retail for $21, while the Yuruppy deluxe costs $38 and has a larger screen.
