I had the really old Tamagotchi 2 from 1997, I think it was. It was green with black and yellow on it. I bought it myself. That Tama has been long gone for ages, but I have some of the newer ones, now.

I sure do! It was a magenta V2 with purple and yellow hibiscus flowers. All my friends had been playing with tamagotchis for 1 or 2 years, and my friend gave me this V2 when she didn't want it anymore. I was thrilled, and played with it every day, until I lost it  :(

I bought my first Tamagotchi from KB Toys in the summer of 1997, right after I finished 6th grade. Thinking back to that time now, I can honestly say it's one of my favorite memories from my childhood. I loved my Tama so much and I still love it today. The full story behind my almost two decade obsession with virtual pets is on my blog.

 

Here's my Tama, along with its receipt (that I'd kept for reasons of future nostalgia). As seen in the photo, it's dated 6/27/97. :wub:

It's been sitting safely inside its original box for many years. I only recently took it out of the box for these photos.

My first virtual pet was a Dinky Dino.  I still have him somewhere around the house.

I was a bit late on the whole Tamagotchi thing. I got my first one from my bestfriend when I was 17. I've had it for 3 years now :) It's a V3

This year marks my 7th "anniversary" since getting my first Tamagotchi; it was Christmas of '06, and I was 7 years old. The one I got was the yellow-with-stars V3, which, to my dismay, is long since lost at this point.

Oh dude, I remember getting some double pack when I was probably nine because it was cheaper than to buy two separately, one for me and my sister each. It was like light blue with these weird stripes and honestly really ugly. I wasn't that bright of a kid (which never changed) and would but it in a fuzzy sock then in the refrigerator. It actually didn't break or anything.

So like I was all happy getting specific characters on it and stuff, and then one day when I joined Tamatalk, people ridiculed me for getting such "low level" characters. Yeah I'm just not very likable on Tamatalk. Ever. But I'm happy now which is what truly matters.

Man, nostalgia...

I remember this day so clearly! 
I think I was four or five at the time, my family lived in the US back then and one day we'd gone to Toys 'R' Us to buy some... well, toys.
I was sitting in the shopping cart and being pushed around by my mom, I think my cousin was there with me too. Anyway, we were lining up to pay at the cashier when I noticed that there was a series of egg-like keychain things hanging from the stands they have next to those checkout counters... I found the coolest design and asked my mom if I could buy it, and she said yes. That's how I got my first tamagotchi (which is currently MIA. I think it got lost when we were moving - *tear*). I thought it was the coolest thing ever, and I carried it the whole time - wouldn't let them put it in the cart, hahaha.
It was this one, in case any of you were wondering:

My first Original Tamagotchi was a P2 that I got from Ra some time ago. ^^

Ahhhh, I remeber my first tama with delight and squee. It was christmas season 2005, when the V2 had stormed in with popularity. I remeber playing with my friend's V2, and she got a not-so-good care character (Hanatchi). My friends literally treated their tama's like it was nothing, and it made me so sad! I vowed to take amazing care of my tama, and I did. I ended up getting a :pochitchi: which I read is good care! She was so cute, too. I never wanted her to leave, but she got married and had a baby boy.

 

When I looked under the tree christmas day, I found a red hearts V2! I literally cried, this tama was PERFECT. I took her with my everywhere, even annoyed my mom a bit because I paid so much attention to her! I promised to myself I would find out how to properly take care of a tama, hence me lurking tamatalk. I was so upset after about 6 months, when someone broke my tama. I cried for a few days. And now at age 16, I vowed to myself to get my red hearts V2 Back.

My first Tama wasn't really mine. I was at my Grandma's farm with my cousin last year and I was looking for something to do. I was looking for a DS stylus at the time but instead came across a Tamawalkie. My cousin and I are 20 days apart agewise so we have similar interests. I asked if it was hers. She said that she had gotten it for her birthday but hadn't any idea how to use it. We carried it around when we went on a walk to a field on the farm. Sudddenly we heard a series of bleeps and it said we had arrived in Tokyo. We worked out that it was a pedometer based Tama. We later found V3 Tama I think.
