As long as you want. As long as you still like them, that's what really matters.

My interest in Tamagotchi has waxed and waned over the years since I bought my first one in 1998, but right now, I'm 22 and I still play with them and find them interesting. :ph34r: I think as long as you still find them enjoyable, it doesn't really matter how long you play with them or when you stop playing with them, if ever at all.

well when you think about it, the people at bandai arent children. Theyre adults and the make and create tamas. so that kinda proves there is no age limit <_<

Exactly. I don't know about you (as in everyone), but tamagotchi's aren't my whole life. I have priorities, and they're called family, school, friends, and pretty much life.

But I would never stop playing with tamagotchis. Ever. There's no age limit. After all, it says "For ages 8+." The + never ends!! :hitodetchi:

im10 this girl teens looked at my tamas and they were like hey the tamagotchi the worlds funest virtural pet i hade one but i lost it mine was so cute
so that kind of takes away the teens not playing with one

As a 20 year old wife I can definitely say that tamas are appropriate for any age. You can toss them in a purse or pocket and play a few quick games while waiting in lines at the store, or waiting for a bus, or waiting for water to boil. They are a great way to distract you if you get really angry or frustrated about something.

I got my first tama in the 90's and played with them for several years. Then I stopped playing them throughout much of my teen-hood but then one day a friend and I were talking around in target and saw the tamagotchis and we both HAD to get one, if only for 90's childhood nostalgia purposes.

Since then I've collected three tamas. My most recent one is a tmgc+color, and I am actually use it to keep up with my japanese practice.

My husband, when seeing how much fun I had with my music star, got one for himself and proceeded to become VERY competitive with me (seeing who could pass the audition first, who could max out their stats fastest ect) and it was pretty fun to be goofy with him and play with our little toys.

Anyway, I think they are fun and relaxing and yes, a little bit silly, but who doesn't need some silliness in their life?

I agree with MrsDrake. One can never get too old to play with Tamagotchis...as long as you still find the joy in it, that's all that matters. Your story sounds very similar to mine. :( It's fun when you find other people to be silly with you.

I stopped using them when I turned 20, this year.


I dunno, I just feel kinda awkward holding one now.

I started playing with them when they came out in '96 when I was 10. I stopped once i hit high school and started up a bit over a year ago. I don't play with them as much as I used to but my collection seems to keep growing.

So from a collecters perspective you can never be too old. Look at people who collect comic books. That has no age limit.

Oh.. you should definitely stop playing with tamas immediately you turn 12yrs old :P


:P Nah... growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional ;)

I agree!
I vots with "However long you want"
When I was 12, I got bored, and then eventually lost them all. This was when I had my ipod, phone, Nintendo DS ect.
Last year, I completely regretted it losing them. I bought a bunch more, and have been playing them ever since!
(Im 14)

I don't think there should be an age limit. I'm 23 [and pretty cool & awesome I might add], and I still collect and play with Tamagotchis. In fact, I got a Tamagotchi for my 23rd birthday, haha. I see nothing wrong with it. A lot of older people are into childhood things [Example: Disney & other cartoon characters]. Nothing wrong with that at all. Just don't get all crazy with it :)
