If you grew up in the '90s or '00s you're probably familiar with the mini digital pets, Tamagotchi. But we can almost guarantee you've never seen any as cool as these 3D concepts of new Tamagotchi's based on famous fictional pets, made by toy website, The ToyZone. 

There are seven concept designs in the collection, featuring pets from the shows like The Simpsons and Futurama, as well as Harry Potter and even Super Mario. We love the novelty of looking after our own famous pets, and we also love the nostalgia of the Tamagotchi – it's a win-win for us.

TheToyZone has even created 3D model gifs for each of the designs, meaning you can have a good look at all the details in the designs, from the individual shape inspired by the fictional pet, to the packaging. We personally love the Lunar design; it's purple, it's cat-shaped and there's a moon on it – what's not to love?

We know that these are only concept designs, but we are keeping our fingers crossed we'll soon own our very own Gary the snail.
