A "death" in the family... Answered
#2 son dropped his "Tamagotchi" in the toilet this morning (fortunately before use!).
I fished it out, opened it up, took out the battery and left the whole lot on the CH boiler to dry.
When dry, I put it all back together and the screen showed, as expected, an egg.
Unfortunately, this evening it is still an egg. Apparently this is not supposed to happen. It should have hatched by now. The reset button has been no help.
Does anybody have any ideas on how to kick-start the wee cyber-beastie into hatching, or do I have to sneak out to the toy shop and buy a replacement?
