i'm going into 10th grade in september, the only thing i did to this that was remotely close was attach my poke walker onto the inside of my jeans. XD
but this year, if i use my locker, i'll probably bring a tama and keep it in there for the day and check on it between classes. i would love to just keep it around and bring it to classes with me but that's also just asking for me to get made fun of. DX :mellow: :angry:

Hey, hope i'm not bumping but,

I wouldn't really suggest you guys really hide your Tamagotchis in schools. Honestly your putting your V - Pet in risk of taking it away for the day, which means if you dont care for it, it could die or you could end up getting a character you dont want, etc. Or just get it taken away forever/end of the year. Plus, you shouldn't even should be having tamagotchis in schools, they're mostly considered electronics. Electronics arent allowed in school (other than phones but you need to place them in your bookbag) so you really dont wanna risk getting in trouble with your teacher and/or principal. But if your really concerened, just store them in your backpack and just check on them during recess or afterschool. Other the less, I wouldn't suggest bringing your tamagotchi, just put it on pause/sleep before heading out for the day.

Hey, hope I'm not Bumping but,

I haven't had any problems taking my tamas to school, my primary school allowed them. Now, in high school, I always ask the teacher at the beginning of every lesson if it is okay to just check up on them. If a teacher said no I'd try my hardest at the work for a month or so and wouldn't ask any more of it, then when you could see an improvement in my work I'd ask again, they’d usually say yes. It works with most teachers, but not all. Also you have to keep your work at that level or higher so it's not the most popular one to do.

If I don't want them to be seen by some people I just put them in a hollowed out book and pretend I'm just reading. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for playing games with them or any harsher more noticeable movements. Another good one is to use a decoy phone; make sure your tama is always in the same pocket as the fake/old phone because when the teacher comes over to take your tamagotchi off you, just take the decoy phone out and pass them that. But, once you've done it once that lesson you can't do it again.

You can also use your real phone but at my high school the lessons are 90 mins long and you have to have a parent/guardian collect your phone out of school hours so it's less hassle using a decoy phone because you can leave it there and get another one.

I think that I have some helpful advice for bringing your Tama-Go to school
Yeah... I don't know what you could make it look like..maybe a pencil sharpener that you never use?
On a more serious note though, to make your pet seem less girly if that is what you are worried about, make a custom faceplate like I did. I made a Sherlock Holmes one and my friends though it was cool.
Also I have no problem putting my Tama pet on pause. Personally I would want to be around to keep it healthy instead of worrying all day. And your pet will grow eventually!
Don't worry about putting your pet on pause unless you really want to grow it fast.

I hide it in my Pencilbag, its very Ideal, but since im in 7th grade, some DUMBUTTS (I cant say bad words here ._.) Think that my little Mimitchi is Pikatchu, and they say that my Tama sucks because it is 8Bit. Does anybody hate that?

The fact they don't like something that would be 8-bit means they don't have good taste to begin with, in my opinion. There are plenty of 8-bit games that are absolute classics.

I'm lucky enough to be in a situation where as long as I'm not playing with my Tamagotchi and it doesn't interrupt the lesson I can keep it on my desk. The newer Tamagotchi's can be paused by pressing buttons A and B at the same time so if you're starting on a baby Tama and you wanna take it to school there's no worries about letting baby go hungry or wallowing in its own poop. If you have a laptop bag keep it in a compartment where it won't be damaged and only take it out before and after the lesson ends. If you own a v1 Tamagotchi you can pause it by keeping it on the change time setting. If your teachers are less strict check it after the teacher has finished speaking and you're absolutely sure she/he isn't looking. It's a lot easier to get away with if you're short and the person who sits in-front of you is taller, like me. (4'10". very short for a 17 year old.)
I hope this helps to keep your teachers and your tama happy :)

Oh god, embarrassing tama stories. I was in year 10 (9th grade) and I had my V4.5. I loved that one. I had raised it to 10th gen. I took it out before Japanese once to check the time and my hawk-eyed teacher spotted it. I got it taken off me and I was so upset I cried for the rest of the lesson. I got teased so much by my classmates. I didn't get it back for weeks because at my school, they have a safe to put confiscated items into, and your parents have to collect them. I went in and asked a month later, and they gave it to me, thankfully. But even though I paused it, it had died. My poor little Hidetchi. I was so mad at my teacher for unpausing it.

Oh, yeah, and that time in year 7 (6th grade) when my V4 got mail and I forgot to turn the sound off. Everybody stared at me. But thankfully my teacher was a deaf old bat and she didn't even notice. *whew*

Reading this topic brings back awesome memories of sneaking Tamas into easier schools than my current one. At this one, all the girls (it's a girls school) are really annoying and they have to know EVERYTHING about you. When I had a cold and needed to blow my nose often, whenever I walked to the bin with a crumpled tissue everyone started asking me why I was going there. And they stare at me whenever I make the slightest noise...so who knows what would happen if I started playing on a Tama.

I've never had one of those Tama beeping incidents, but a similar thing happened with my phone during maths. It's happened to two of us so far. At least mine was only on vibrate, whereas the other girl's was on top volume ringtone.

I just take them to school and play on pauses, but still I rather hide them. Year ago I showed them to my class and they were cool with it, some of them ignored it and few of them checked it out, some wondered where are their ones and one guy played with it.
Now I'm less confident.

I remember some beeping accidents, but nobody noticed.

Tamas came out when I was 10 years old, and the school pretty much got swamped with them, every kid had at least one, and if someone didnt have one you could trade for one because they were like baseball cards at our school. I got mine by taking broken ones and fixing them. The teachers were overwhelmed with all the tamagotchis and confinscated them (TONS OF THEM) but many didnt know how to turn them off, my teacher personally put them all in a bag and muffled them under a pillow when she got frustrated with us, eventually kids learned how to 'pause' them by going into the clock and opening it to edit the time which was basically pause for us.

I bet my old elementary teachers had a small fortune in tamagotchis but threw em all out x.x

Here's an embarrassing tama story: I snuck my V6 into the front pocket of my book bag with the sound off before my dad got home or my mom got downstairs. When I got home from school, I sat down on the stairs, slid my tama under a book, slid it out, and checked on it. My dad said it wasn't there before. I convinced him, but barely... -_-

I was in like grade 2 and I brought in a digi pet or something like that and it was in my desk and it beeped and the Teacher (yes the Teacher comes into this one as well LOL) took it of me and said I can have it at the end of the day so I could not wait till the end of the day. But @ the end of the day, the teacher gave it back 2 me and I found it dead! :( But I do not have the digi pet now, but I have learnt my lesson to NEVER EVER bring it in to school! :rolleyes: Wise decision @ my school is to not even think about sneaking in Tamas and I learnt that at a VERY young age! -_-

In 3rd grade, there was a PJ party at school! All the girls bought their Tamagotchis, so nobody had to sneak theirs in. It was more like a Tamagotchi PJ Party..Lol.

I wouldn't dare bring my tama to school since I'm 18 and in high school, and imagine the embarrassment if I got caught with it? :P I just leave it paused at home and then unpause it as soon as I get back. :)
