I got a yellow V3 with pink polka dots for my 9th birthday present. I still have it although the sound is ruined because I debugged/undebugged it too much. My boyfriend actually told me today that he might be able to solder the wires back on!

My first tama wasn't really mine, but I'll slap it in here anyway. My cousin and I were messing around at our grandmas farm and we found this Tamawalkie I believe. It was probably the black and pink one. We were like "What the flip are we supposed to do with this?" We pressed some buttons but they didn't really do anything, so I put it in my pocket and we went for a walk down to see the calves. We were halfway down the path and then it started beeping and we were like "what the heck?" and we were in like Texas or something. Then we bought food for the little dude (I reckon it was a Mametchi, though the details are a little fuzzy) and we realised it was a pedometer. We ended up going on this massive walk to get more points. It was pretty cool but I don't know where it is anymore.

If this isn't a disturbance, I'm going to tell the story of my 2 first tamagotchis, because they go together as my first experience with tamas :3
My first tama was a pink V1. I wanted to have one since my best friend owned a blue V1. I had so much fun with it (Only that I always got the bad care characters because I used to go to school with it, meaning that during class I couldn't take care of it :/ ) and loved it so much ! And soon all the school got a tamagotchi, both girls and boys. I remember it clearly, we all used to spend the recess time to connect our tamagotchi and play together, hoping that we could marry them...
Sadly one day I performed a dance ballet with my dance class, and I left the tama in the locker-room without any watching. When I came back after the show it had disapeared, so to this day I assume that someone stole it :/
I was very sad (and also very young, since this event I've never left my tamagotchis alone anymore) so my mother took me to the store the next day to buy me a new one. I chose a blue V1, the one with "waves" if I remember well.
I have no particular stories to tell you about this one, just that one day I got Hanatchi, and I was so happy because I thought it was a rare character (Now I know this is just a bad care result) and just the afternoon after that, my tama fell on the ground and the screen broke completely.
After that I waited for a little before I bought a V2, but I don't count both my V2 as part of my "first experience"

But I really really wanted one, especially when kids in school had them and they became popular. I saved up money and then they were no where to be found! But one of my class mates said they didn't want theirs anymore and offered to sell it to me, for like 10 bucks and it even still had the box and little battery separator tab thing! I used to play with it all the time!
It was the purple one with hot pink buttons. I still have it. I also have a few gigapets, nano pets and another Tama but I don't remember what version it is. I'll have to dig it out and see what batteries it uses and see if they all work still.

My first Tamagotchi was a P1. I remember being one of the first children in my school to have one; it was fun to be ahead of the trend!
At the time, I really wanted my parents to let me have my own hamster. I tried to pay close attention to the Tamagotchi and prove that I would be able to pay attention to a real hamster. (This is funny, looking back on it, because my parents were not evaluating my "pet readiness" based on the Tamagotchi at all. My dad had simply read a newspaper article about what a fad they were in Japan and bought me one. I had this whole scenario in my mind about how successful Tamagotchi could equal a real hamster, but no one even suggested that. When I did, eventually, get the hamster, it had nothing to do with the Tamagotchi.)
I can't remember what colour it was, but I think it was probably yellow. That was my favourite colour as a child. (I do not still have it.)

My first Tamagotchi was a version 2 that was mainly pink with some flowers around it - it looked like this. I still have it somewhere, even though I can't remember where is it right now. It was a birthday present for me when I was around five or something (at least I didn't go to school yet during that time).

Well, My sister had one but I could vaguely remember it. It was red. Mine was a v6 Music Star I got for my birthday then i expanded my collection since then.
I got a horrible care adult.

My first Tamagotchi was a yellow see-through V3 with a blue border.
I was never allowed a tamagotchi before then even though they were all the rage at school so I remember when I went down to visit my Nan and she took me shopping I decided to ask her if I could get one; she said yes (I didn't mention that my Mum had said no). We went into Argos and the yellow one was the only one left, I had originally wanted a pink one but at that point I was just so desperate to have my own I didn't even care that it wasn't the colour I wanted.
I took such good care of it, like, I never killed it. Not even once, it's on something like 18 gens and I've still never killed it.

My 1st tama was a P1 which my dad got for me when the Tamagotchi wave hit my side of the world. It was in Japanese but I loved it so much!

My first Tamagotchi was the best thing I ever decided to purchase. It was a pink connection v4.5 and I was super excited-up until I lost it. 5 years later I brought it to school and cared for it all day. I didn't know you could pause them back then so Angela went hungry for a while. At the end of the day, I took her out during AfterCare and showed her off.
As soon as I got home, she died.

My first Tamagotchi wasn't actually a Tamagotchi! In the late 90's when the virtual pet craze was in full swing, I had a Tamagotchi cousin, an orange Nano Kitty. I carried it around like it was my child, but being the irresponsible kid that I was, I would lose it constantly. Every time I lost it I would be completely devastated, but that made finding it all the more satisfying. I still have it to this day, and it is the ultimate relic of nostalgia!
I received my first actual Tamagotchi for Christmas of 2004-2005 when the virtual pets made a comeback. It was a V1 Connection with the Green Matrix design. I might have been a little older but I was no less irresponsible and I lost the instructions constantly so I never actually knew how to work the thing. Despite my lack of knowledge, I fell in love with them, and my collection grew from there. Where I live, we don't have a mall or pretty much any other store that sells a good selection of toys other than Wal-Mart, so that's where I would go to get my Tamas. It was very hit-and-miss with the Tamas since they didn't really pick up among kids in the area, so I might have went one day and they would have a lot (which I would proceed to beg my parents for), but the next day they would be gone and not show back up in the store for a week or weeks at a time. So most of my collection has come from the internet. Though I'm not an avid collector with hundreds, I have 31 Tamas, all of which I love and cannot be convinced to get rid of.
