So October 11th was a pretty picture-heavy day, as I finally had time to read up more on the characters' happy items and try for them.  I was on the go again so forgive me if some of the pictures appear a bit blurry.
 
Spaceytchi's happy items - king's crown, curry rice, and ice cream:

According to the happy items project page over at Tama Zone, another one of his happy items is the modeling clay.  When I tried it, however, he just made a model, but no happy sign!  How strange!  I wonder if anyone else out there who has had Spaceytchi can confirm with me.

I didn't realize that this happened at the time, but I also earned the final happy sign (being an adult for 72 hours, if I remember reading correctly) a while back.  This completed the clover for Spaceytchi.

One of Neenetchi's happy items, the tiara:

In addition to the tiara, Neenetchi also likes cream stew and ribbon one piece.  (For a more comprehensive list that's being currently updated, I've been visiting this page.)

Completed clover and the book icon!

Some thoughts that I recorded on the fly as I did a little more research and finished up my first generation on my 4U:
  • Small detail, but I really like that I can see all 6 hunger bowls on the status screen.  One of the things that always bothered me on previous color versions was that there were 2 "hidden" hunger bowls.  I'd rather know right off the bat exactly how much I need to feed my Tamagotchi.  
  • Snacks eaten at the restaurant now fill up hunger bowls too (rather than just filling up the happiness meter)
  • The clover pictured under the status icon doesn't change appearance and "complete itself" until all 4 happy items are collected.  I was expecting a similar picture to the puzzle pieces interlocking to make a whole, but that's not the case on the 4U.  On that same screen as the clover, what I'm assuming (because I can't read Japanese) is a list of happy items obtained to complete the clover also appears.  Something new and different, I like that.
  • Clothing and accessories are located under the bathroom icon.
  • The baby-sitting feature (which I'll cover in a later post) is a complete dream for a full-time employee like me.   :)
  • To use the NFC feature 4U to 4U, you only need to activate the connection icon on one of the Tamagotchis.  Many thanks to Camii and the helpful connection topic that was posted!
  • The exception the rule happens when you marry two 4U though.  According to the video in that same connection topic, looks like you have to select MARRY on both to get them to marry.  I still don't know what all the options in the menu after selecting MARRY means but hopefully I'll figure it out soon.
Last, but not least, here's what happened on my +C on the 11th: Young Mametchi had evolved into Kuromametchi and when the time came, he went to the matchmaker where he and Furawatchi were married.  They had a baby boy, who evolved into Kuribotchi.

That's all for now.  Stay tuned!

Tamagotchi 4U
I got impatient trying to figure out how to marry my two 4U, so I took them each to the dating place instead.   :D  I prefer my Tamagotchis to evolve earlier in the day, hence my decision.  
 
Over on my white 4U, Spaceytchi married Meloditchi.

When you obtain all the happy items for a character and you go to the date place/get married, a cute animation plays where your Tamagotchi character's life plays like a movie before your eyes.  It's like a reflection on all that happened.  Pretty neat little feature!
 
2014-10-12095436.jpg 2014-10-12095441.jpg 2014-10-12095454.jpg
 
I recorded a video of my girl's marriage sequence on my blue 4U.  By the way, I am SO sorry about my dorky giggle fits in the video.  My husband was in my periphery and he was making me laugh.   :P
 

 
A girl hatched on both my blue and white 4U.  Darn!  Going to have to try out the connection marriage some other time.

October 12, 2014 (continued)
 
Both my white 4U and blue 4U characters later evolved into the adorable tofu teen character.

The rest of the day, I tried to keep a close eye out to try and potty-train my gals.  It worked!  It took 3 tries each this time around.  I didn't miss any in between.
 
Thinking about it...
 
2014-10-12140825.jpg 2014-10-12140834.jpg
 
Getting praise and remembering the training...
 
2014-10-12140837.jpg 2014-10-12140849.jpg
 
Success!

Now, to pay attention enough to earn the other skills...
 
TMGC+C
Kuribotchi evolved into Kikitchi.  Such an adorable character!

That's all for now, dear readers!  More updates to come!

October 13-15, 2014
 
This will be a shorter update during the aforementioned time period because I was at work.
 
Tamagotchi 4U
It turns out I missed the calls for clean up because I woke up one morning to a huge mess on the screen of both 4U, with no thought bubbles.  Nothing else to do but clean it up.  I didn't know it then but I also missed the calls for teeth-brushing/prepping for bed.  Better luck next time!
 
2014-10-14074613.jpg 2014-10-14074621.jpg
 
As I mentioned in a previous entry, the baby-sitting feature on the 4U is GENIUS.  
 
2014-10-14074716.jpg
 
It doesn't line up perfectly with my schedule (I'm a weirdo who works the night shift, what do you expect? :P) because it's only activated during the day time and "turns off" at night, and so when I come home from work some time after 7 am (i.e., after the Tamagotchis wake up), and after eating, showering, and getting settled down myself without touching my Tamagotchis, the characters go some time without care but I'm not complaining!  It's pretty darn close. That baby-sitter takes care of most of the day for me. I still haven't quite figured out yet if activating the baby-sitting function affects evolution time but perhaps when I have more time, I'll sit down one day and monitor things more closely. 
 
TMGC+C
Kikitchi evolved into Mametchi.  I wanted to buy Kikitchi's happy item and use it before he evolved (it's a Hero Set that transforms him into the Monkey King...very cute) but alas, the weather did not permit me to visit Tama Town.  Maybe next time!
 
2014-10-15131430.jpg
 
My next update will be significantly longer - it'll probably be a 2- or 3-part entry.  Until next time, TamaTalk!

Hello, dear readers!  It's been a while since I last logged.  A lot has happened and so I'll try and catch up as best as I can (I hope I can remember it all)!

I last left off before logging the events of October 16-17, my aforementioned probable 2- or 3-parter.   :D

Tamagotchi 4U
Both my gals evolved into Neenetchi (again…well, in the case of my blue one :P) and if I recall, I married them both off as soon as they evolved into adults, one to Kuchipatchi and the other to Kuromametchi.

 

2014-10-16084816.jpg 2014-10-16084931.jpg

 

Of course, I realized after the fact that I had not achieved all happy items for Neenetchi on my white 4U before, but oh well.  Chances are, I’ll be getting her again so if it does happen on my white one, I’ll take a little extra time to earn her happy symbols and have her character stored under the book icon. 

 

Boys were hatched on both my blue and white 4U.  Wonder if the stars will align again so that I may have a boy on one and a girl on the other.

They both evolved into the male jellyfish character.

October 16-17, 2014 (continued)

During this rebellious stage, I trained both boys to go to the bathroom as best as I could. I kept track this time and they each called about every 2 hours or so. I managed to successfully toilet-train my blue 4U within my 2 days off and it took 6 unmissed calls. That certainly took longer than last time! I missed one call on my white 4U but as with my blue 4U on the second day and SEVEN tries, he became potty-trained. Phew!

I also managed to train them only once each for both the cleaning up skill and getting ready for bed skill, the latter of which seems to happen around 7:00 pm. Cant remember what time the clean-up skill happened but it was in the evening time around the same time as getting ready for bed.

Unfortunately, I wasnt able to earn the 2 skills for them because on the second night of their rebellious stage, I was busy and so I was unable to watch for their second call (Im assuming that all it takes is two successful praising opportunities because it seems like they happen once a day and the rebellious stage only lasts for two days) for these skills.
 
Thats all that happened during these two days on my 4U.

TMGC+C
Mametchis special item: the lab coat.

On the 16th, Mametchi and Furawatchi married each other and had a baby boy. He evolved into Ahirukutchi after the hour of care.

Thats all for now. I worked on the 18th, so Ill log events occurring on the 19th and on next time. Until then!

Hello, fellow TamaTalkers!  It's been a while!  Though I often go through periods of inactivity Tamagotchi-wise due to work and other things going on in life, you can count on me to be lurking, to still be making purchases here and there, and to come back to logging.   :D  For those of you still following along, and to new readers just joining in too, thank you so much!
 
It's a nice, relaxing, rainy day off for me today and I was overcome with an immense urge to catch up on logging.  Originally, I thought against backlogging because there are quite a bit of things to talk about, but I think I can do it, and it's fun to share these pictures anyway.  Just give me a bit of time though because my work schedule is never the same week to week so my updates will be irregular.  I will cover the rest of October.  If I recall, I stopped running Tamagotchis in the beginning of November.  After I catch up, I may begin running a Tamagotchi again.
 
As I mentioned above, despite my hiatus from running Tamagotchis, I still made some purchases.
 
I received my Aikatsu touch card and cover for the 4U from HLJ.

My latest batch from Japan arrived.  I was pleasantly surprised because one of the sellers had included a bunch of free items, such as the guide books you see, and the 3 loose Tamagotchis pictured.

I get pretty excited about all my virtual pets but this newest addition is even more exciting to me: I finally tracked down a boxed Tamagotchi Restaurant for a decent price!

My Tamagotchi 4U guide book!

These as well.

I've got to make an updated collection picture/video one of these days.  

Anyway, I left off last time getting ready to log the events from October 18 (I worked that day so pictures were limited) and on.  I'll log the events on October 18-19 and will probably stop there for this post.
 
Both my 4U characters evolved into Orenetchi, a character I've obtained before.  Looks like I have to study the character charts a bit more closely (and not neglect my Tamagotchis so much :P) so that I can start getting new characters again.  I changed the icon background on one of my Tamagotchis to distinguish them a bit.

Cute animation of Orenetchi bawling her eyes out when she was disciplined.   :P
 
20141019_172901.jpg
 
On the TMGC+C front, my guy evolved into Nemutchi (not a big surprise).
 
20141019_172758.jpg
 
That's all for now.  I'll be back soon!

It was my mom's birthday on this day and I was quite busy, so I only took pictures here and there.  I don't think I even took pictures of my +C, but Nemutchi was still there, no changes.
 
Orenetchi's happy items - 
 
Omurice

20141020_151141.jpg 20141020_151147.jpg
 
Another happy item of hers is the pair of swirl glasses, which is a little harder to obtain than just purchasing it from a store, so I waited on that for a little while since I was busy.
 
I must have been busy with work and other things during the following days because I'm showing in my pictures gallery that I didn't take pictures again until October 28.  I'll stop here for now and resume a little later.  Until then!
