For many of us who grew up in the '90s, our greatest concerns were what the Spice Girls were going to do next and keeping our candy-colored Tamagotchi virtual pets alive.


The adorable little pets couldn't do anything by themselves – you were responsible for feeding them, cleaning up after them, and making sure they were happy. If you faltered, even one day, you'd come back to a little Tamagotchi angel. You remember that incessant beeping, right?


Relive those moments from the '90s with Merchoid's fun new Tamagotchi: Feed Me Heat Change Mug, albeit without all that annoying beeping. The standard-sized drinking mug comes clad in a pretty blue "shell" with an adorable Tamagotchi creature on the front, accompanied by the three buttons you'd normally use to take care of it.


As you pour hot liquid like life-restoring coffee into the mug, you'll see your digital pet "wake up" and come to life. That's a lot easier than painstakingly feeding it and playing with it every hour or so, right?


Just add hot coffee, sip, and wait for your Tamagotchi to come to life. It couldn't be easier. Now for the hard decision: Backstreet Boys or *NSYNC?


The Tamagotchi: Feed Me Heat Change Mug is available to order here:
