If anyone tells you that Tamagotchis are super difficult to care for and that it takes hours if your life away, they’re lying. This is all it takes. Just feed it, play with it, clean its poop, and give it medicine when it needs it. If you check on it once an hour, you should be fine.

And yet, I hear about so many people struggling to care for them, and for the life of me, I can’t figure out why.
