I didn't have to sneek any of my Tamagotchi's into school until Grade 6. In Elementry school Tamagotchi's where VERY popular and the teachers didn't care as long as you paused it or it wouldn't distract you.

In Grade 6 I snuck my V3 into class and got caught several times, but for a weird reason I never had it taken away from me.

Then during a Grade 6 field trip to the theatre, we were watching "Shrek Forever After" and some kid dumped my V3 into his ice cream...I got mad because that was my very first Tamagotchi!!! > :(

I brought in my V4 to school, I had to put behind my teacher's desk only once. My teacher was so confused on how to take care of it, so I showed her how. weird, huh? and that was last year!

Man, this brings back memories.. when the first batch of Tamas came out, I was 11. Sneaking them into school wasn't a big issue for me. I'd just put it in my trouser/skirt pockets (I'd make sure my skirts had pockets. I still do that, haha) and sneakily check it during class. Or pretend I'm looking for something inside my desk or something like that. A lot of people had them back then. Our teachers never complained about it, though. Come to think of it, that's kinda weird, haha! Maybe it's because I live in a town (I grew up here too) and people are just more open-minded?

Then they became less popular (and harder to find) around here, but I kept playing. I was the only one though, everyone else was being all "we're gonna grow up as fast as we can, get married to our current boyfriend, have kids, and die.", and most of them have. But I couldn't be happy like that.. I wanna be alive ;) so I kept playing Tamagotchi until it eventually died on me for good. The buttons were completely worn down and.. well.. I couldn't play anymore. So then I got the V4, and loved it SO much I got 3 more XD all V4s :P

Now I'm 26 and I've got my iD L running and a Hanerutchi2 on the way, so.. Not giving up my tama-mama-ness any time soon ;)

I just play with mine at break time and pause it during class. I always have it one mute at school time to. :lol:
But since i'm a senior (grade 12) and have lots of study classes, i sometimes turn it on in class. This is only when i finished my set work and have nothing else to do till the bell gose.
I find pencil cases are good places to stash them, and you can still play with them without anyone noticing. Make sure you keep you eye site even, as in, don't look at it to much. B)
If you do use it in class, don't play games. Just give it a check up.
Its also true that looking after babies in class is hared then adults. But that's why you have a pause button XD :P

I'm in college so it's not a big deal really for me, however I don't pull them out during class since usually we are very busy from start to finish of the class. I don't normally bring them, though, and just end up pausing them and leaving them at home as to not have a repeat of losing them or getting them stolen.

Well now it's not a problem since I'm in uni, I usually just put it on the desk beside me. It's not that big of a deal and no one cares. I don't really play with it during a lesson though since it's usually "go, go, go" in lectures.

But I remember the last I had them with me at school: grade six. I remember having one of those desks with a pocket? If that makes sense, it's right beneath it, so you could store your books and stuff. I usually just had it there. Otherwise I'd be sneaking off to the bathroom a lot to feed/play with it.

I'm in college now but I remember my first tamagotchi and how much of a hassle it would have been for my teacher to take all of ours away from us. He was cool, so he let us play with them during quiet work time and of course lunch and recess. I was in 5th grade and almost everyone in my class had one. Some people got bored of them really fast and I begged them to let me take care of theirs. I used to have them all lined up in my pencil shelf in my desk. Later through middle school I had them taken away a few times though. Now that I'm I'm college though I just have one going and it's attached to my key lanyard. I usually have it either in my pocket, checking it every hour or so, or I let it sit on my desk and I carefully play with it. Some people have thought it was cool that I had one, even. :)

I usually keep my Tamagotchi in my bag (wrapped up in a bandanna because I hate it when the screen gets scratched!), and go to the bathroom during break-times to feed it and check its stats. To be honest, I'd rather have my Tamagotchis hidden from the rest of my classmates (apart from my close friends), because I honestly can't stand it when people make fun of stuff I love.

My science teacher let me keep it on my desk after a big test. And I sneak it during math and ELA. Social studies is a big "NO-NO" so to speak.

Ironically yesterday (this is my only incident) is my embarrassing moment. I was getting ready for work, which is a part time til the end of the year, and I made sure that my tamagotchi v6 was paused so that I didn't have to worry about her when I was dealing with customers. Well, right in the middle of cleaning up the area for close, I heard my tami chirp and my face flushed. I pulled her out and repaused. My co-worker didn't say a word since she didn't see it (thank goodness). It was just a close call. But hey, what can you do when you can't find a babysitter?

On occasion me and my friend will sneak our tamas into school, althrough since we are allowed to use all electronics in the halls, and at lunch, we don't really have to be sneaky about it. On occasion, we will sneak them into gym class, or study hall, but we always have the sound off, and quite honestly, i'm kind of seen at the goody-goody kid, so my teachers wouldn't think twice about it if I said it was my watch.

My embarrising tama story was:
Okay, so we're reviewing math and taking notes, my teacher gives us 3 problems, I finish early and he starts passing out our school's newsletter, and I was playing with my tama, sound off'n all. I was playing the Shoot the Bug game because I'm trying for a good care, he sees it and looks at it, and tries to play it, my teach was pretty lax about it and just told me to put it away. Also, I'm running my tama with my best friend Sara, and we're in computer lab taking the NWEA, a VERY important test , and since I didn't have the back, Sara was pressing it against her leg too hard, and it reset. In front of our teacher. He thought it was a computer. THANK CELESTIA.
See if you can ask for help running the tama with a close friend if yoave u are very bad at hiding things.
SOUND OFF. Yea, pro-tip.
Try and have the back.
If you can, try not to bring it unless it's like a good-care adult, the hearts don't run out fast.
If you have a desk you don't open, play with it inside your desk.
If you have a teach who goes to the washroom, play and feed it.

I've been sneaking my tamas to school since Year 6. Going into Year 13 this year would make about 7 years. Every single tama I've ever owned has been to school with me. Even the Tama-Gos. Smaller tamas (e.g. the ones before Tama-Go), I put in my skirt pocket. Tama-Gos, I put in a small bag and then put that bag in my school bag, as I'd look a bit silly carrying a small bag around as well as my school bag, but I don't want them getting lost in my school bag. If I check them in class I make it look like I'm looking for something in my bag. With the smaller versions, I always keep it under my desk when checking in class. I care for them properly at interval and lunch time, and this is the only time I actually take them fully out of the pocket/bag, as my friends all know I play with tamagotchis. I have yet to get in trouble for having tamagotchis at school

Summary of my tips:
  • You can keep ONE, I repeat ONE, small tama in your pocket if you have one. Pockets generally don't have room for more than one, especially if they're like the one on my skirt, where if you put in a second tama it's noticeable.
  • Put your Tama-Gos, and any other small versions you have, if you bring more than one, in a small bag, and put that bag in your school bag. You can also use this for any version at all if you don't have pockets/pockets are already occupied by other stuff.
  • If you absolutely MUST check on them during class, make it look like you're looking for something in your bag/keep the one you're checking on under your desk if it's from a pocket. Also, if you're making it look like you're looking for something, don't take too long or people might get suspicious.
  • Check on them properly during breaks. Make sure there are no tattletales/people you don't like/people who don't like you around.
All the other tips I've seen are good too.

i usually keep mine in a small pocket in my pencil case(so it doesn't get damaged). during advisory, i put it on my book so it looks like i'm reading, but i'm actually playing with my tama. i always keep my sound off. during skills my teacher lets me take it out when i have nothing else to work on.

When I was at school, I would keep one or two of my Tamagotchis in the inner pocket of my blazer and check them on breaks.
I was always terrified that somehow one would call for attention (even though I kept the sound off) during chapel...

I never used them in front of other people when I was in school, but now that I'm out of school I feel differently. My co-workers know about/see me checking on the one I bring to work with me. It's funny how the environment you're in changes your perceptions and self-confidence. I was never enough at ease in the high school environment but since I've left it's been much easier to embrace any quirks and differences. You spend your years at school trying to assimilate, whereas in the real world, being a bit alternative can really put you ahead.
