I agree. yes, its a toy, but its there, isn't it?
No, I don't think so. A lot of the time I feel like my Tamagotchies are my best friends ... they'll always be there, especially when nobody else is, and they don't care who you are or what you look like or what you're interested in, they love you anyway, and they express it. When you don't need them, you can just put them down, and then when you really need a friend again, you pick them back up. They're amazing. My Tamagotchies were my only real friends back when I was in primary/elementary school, and some of high school. I used to be mocked a lot for it too, but it didn't put me off them, it added to the fact that they were the only ones that were there for me.
Over obsession is a little bit too harsh a description for being 'friends' with your Tamagotchi, I think. There are much worse cases in the world, lol. I'm not even gonna go into that. xD
I consider my Tamagotchies - all 14 of them - to be my children. I love them so dearly. I carry at least two of them around with me at all times - usually my two TMGC+C, sometimes my Music Star. I can't go anywhere without them or I feel horrible about leaving them behind where they'll get hungry and feel all alone.
I'm in my second year of university, too, by the way. I have many real friends and even a boyfriend, and they're still very dear to me.

Isnt important if he's a real, true or pure friend, it's part of our daily life
for me they're an entertaining electronic pets, but they have the power to take your time and be part of your real life. I think this is good enough for a "toy".

School starts in 2 weeks, and I know many people will make fun of me for playing with a tamagotchi, but I will do my best to ignore them. Some people just don't understand me and my interests.

I guess it's because I've never been able to get a real pet, I craved something that needed my care.
I do grow unreasonably attatched to them. I've had at least one attatched to me since I was 7 and they first came out- I've never grown out of them. Now they are familiar and comforting because they remind me of my childhood. And when I'm worried, or stressed out with work, I look at the little blob rolling around on the screen and it sort of reminds me that there's a lot of nonsense in life, but sometimes a carefree attitude is best
Another thought I had when I was a teenager was about Biology class at school. You learn that in order for it to be classified as alive, a creature must do these things: grow, respire, move, consume and excrete. The only thing they don't do is respire (breathe), so I guess they are 80% alive XD

Tamagotchi = friend.
A friend who's dependent on you, but doesn't drag you down. A friend who listens to all of your problems, but never interrupts. A friend who can be there by your side when you are ill, but never once worries about catching what you have. A friend that's always willing to play a game, but never grows tired or weary of simplicity. A friend who will let you have your distance when you need it, whether the stillness of the distance lasts a day or a year, but is absolutely more than willing to take you back when you are ready. A friend who will always be there for you no matter what the circumstance. A friend who doesn't judge, but instead loves you for who you are - whoever you are.
Go ahead, hold it up to your ear. Close your eyes and listen.
Tamagotchi = friend.
Friend that has a heartbeat just like you do.
