I try not to be too embarassed when I buy one...
I mean, why should the care if you buy one? They're getting your money. Also, who said it was for you anyway? Maybe you're buying one for a younger sibling, or a friend.

It's nice to know that I havent had the cashier say anything rude though... even if I buy pink tamas and I'm a guy...

I do get the feeling that Bandai is trying to exclude a lot of people from their target audience, and that's just silly. If they gave Tamagotchis a wider appeal, they'd have more people buying them! I'm female, but I do feel very awkward being a 23 year old going into the toy aisle. I once saw them for sale at a Gamestop, and felt much better purchasing one there. It shouldn't bother you, though. Don't be afraid of what you enjoy, even though I admit sometimes I am.

Tamagotchis are definitely unisex.. that's why they have so many different colours and designs!

And as far as i'm concerned the age rating says 6+.. so it's ok for anyone above the age of 6 to have one! :) [even if they are like 40]

there is no need to be embarrassed when going in the GIRLS isle! if you really want a tamagotchi, you should not care about other ppl. Even my younger brother nags me to bring him to the GIRLS toys section instead of a BOYS one.

Even though where I buy Tama's (Target) and they put them in the Electronics section, its kinda embarrasing still because its like right in the open and anyone walking buy can see you. And buying one when the cashier is the other gender and older and its kinda okward.

That is one of the reasons why I only buy Tamagotchis online (their Japanese). Tamagotchis were unisexual back in the vintage days, but it seems that it has transformed completely since then.

I think that it has gone from all ages down to 9-12 year olds. In girls. [no offence]. I think that Tamagotchi are now to make kids get embarrassed going to the girl aisle. I went to Toys R' Us and the GIRLS' aisle had the Tamagotchis. A boy in a pink girl aisle! I'm tired of this nonsense.

yah. there's a topic about something similar like this . I understand where your coming form though ( expression )

Tamas are for anyone, no matter how old, or what gender anyone is!! I'm female, 52 years old, and I prefer the blue or green or grey or black Tamas. The only possibly "girly" color I have is a totally white Akai that I bought on ebay. There is no reason for anyone to be embarassed to buy one in the store. The store people DON'T CARE!! And they shouldn't either. It's none of their business. B)

Actually who said in the first place tamagotchi's were for kids anyway I'm 16 male and I collect alot of them. Growing up when they were making V1's it was very popular and most of my male friends had tamagotchi's and the girls that I knew didn't even have any scratch that they didn't even know about them.

To tell the truth I don't really like how they have the tamagotchi's in the girl aisle either. I am a girl but a 14 year old walking down the same aisle they have baby dolls and stuff is quite embarrassing. the WalMart where I live has moved them to the section with the games and stuff so it's not so bad anymore ;)

Tamagotchis are for everybody. Not just "little kids". I'm 15 and I collect Tamagotchis and I love them.

don't let that get in your way. If you really like tamas, then you wouldn't care no matter embarrassing it is to buy one. If anyone asks, just say"lots of people like tamagotchi. It doesn't matter if they're for girls".
