Tamagotchi is back and this time a special someone will help you raise your animated character to adulthood.

The Hello Kitty Tamagotchi combines two big components of your childhood in a pocket-sized game. The friendly character helps players raise the Tamagotchi from egg to baby to Adult. She’ll give it milk or apple pie and help tidy up its space. Like the true friend she is, Hello Kitty will also play the Piano Game or the Balloon Game with the Tamagotchi character.

Fans of the two brands can pick up the Tamagotchi in December or preorder it now for $19.99. It will be available at hobby shops, GameStop, and Amazon. You can choose between two styles that house the Tamagotchi-fied Hello Kitty. A white shell has Hello Kitty’s red bow and whiskers, while a red shell showcases some of her favorite things.
