I am not even playing my tamagotchi much. Maybe they should make the audience 6-9 years old. That may get more applause. 1997 tamagotchis I would say could be for all ages. Even people of their 40's and 50's would enjoy it much more than the others. Apparently, Bandai won't be getting much money out of the boys if they keep on making it girly.

The V1 was a PET. Since then it has became a cult, really. ( which is good in some ways ) It used to be a creature that you fed, watched, exercised and loved. Now tamagotchis have jobs, are more like humans, and are so advanced that they require far more care. These things gave Bandai a chance to become more age and gender related. Just look at the V4 character chart! I'd say that 7 or 8 of the 52 characters looked like humans. It isn't much, but it started out as none. And all of the human-like characters were introduced in V4s! Bandai really went gender related in V4s.
When I see what V5s have, my reaction might be , , or . It's all possible, I just hope Bandai does the right thing.

A cult? How? Tama's aren't taking over a bunch of people, brain washing them and then telling them to drink poison. o.O

I wish they were portrayed as a 'big kids toy' a little more if you know what I mean. People always give me wierd/funny looks when I tell them I play with tamagotchies. Lol. It doesn't stop me from playing with them, but it'd be nice if they were considered 'normal' for teenagers to be playing with them.
Ah well, BANDAI does what it has to do.

I guess "cult" isn't the perfect word. Lifestyle makes more sense. I used to be completely addicted to Tamas, and now they aren't quite as interesting to me .
A Tama geared to teens would be good. Heck, in 12 months I'll be a teen, and I might not like the things Tamas have anymore ......
I used to see 15 year olds with Tamas, but they were V2s. Like I said before, V1s and V2s were more like pets. They would appeal to anyone of any age. But now......
I would like to see a Tamagotchi Teen ( well, that's not QUITE the right name ), a Tama That would appeal to older kids and adults. I know that Bandai couldn't go back to V1 like things, because every version of tama gets more complex, and going back a few steps wouldn't make sense. This is why I think they should branch out.

I also find this disappointing...V1 was for evry1!!! And V2...and V3....there were girlier ones, camo ones, silver ones...yellow ones...etc. They werent focused on children but adults as well! Before if u had a tama..u were kool! Or you just had a tam..so wat? But now if u hav one u are looked upon as childish! This is wrong! TAMS SHOULD BE 4 EVRY1!!!

Tamagotchi was originally made for children so I don't see anything wrong with the age limit and except it. The designs sometimes bother me, for the most part when they consist of childish ones. *sees self now walking around with a lipstick V2* (never in my life!) Like quite a few of the V4.5 designs though
Bandai has defiantly been aiming at girls buying tamagotchi from the start in 2004 with the femine designs. Seems like very few male designs have been made since then. I personally believe its whatever floats your boat. Doesn't matter by gender or age just by what interests you.
