I bought a Tamagotchi at a garage sale several years ago, never opened it though. For the life of me I cannot figure out if it is a real Tamagotchi or not.

I have included pictures. According to my cousin (who has the same kind), there is no pause function, and the time does not change once set. This alone makes me think it's fake, but at the same time, if it IS real, I want to keep it in the box for collector's value.

Here is the front packaging, the back packaging, and a close-up of the actual Tama. Apologies for the large pictures and the low quality. The letters A, B, and C are above the appropriate buttons. Please also note the "v2" sign paired with the v3-like antenna on the Tama.

Is it a fake? I'm pretty sure it is but I want to know for sure.

Actually, not no. no means it's real. Jayny, yes, it is very fake. JD is a company that makes real-looking illegal knock-offs of Tamagotchi. It's not worth a breath.

That's about as fake as they get x_x
To be positive it is the real deal, look for the Bandai logo.
If the Bandai logo is nowhere to be found then it's not worth anything.

Good thing I only paid $1.50 for it then, huh? :) Oh well, thank you all for replying. I'm probably going to take it out of the package sometime and point out all the differences to myself just for the heck of it. Ha.
