This is a perfect item for any game collector or for those who missed out on getting an official Bandai Tamagotchi in the 1990s. This is a NEW and SEALED product that has been sitting in storage as a collection piece. Although this is from Japan, the display is English. The battery that comes with it has not been used so it likely does not need to be changed. As with all Tamagotchi, they come with a small beaded chain attached so you can affix it to a strap or bag.
