they stopped selling tamas back in the 1990s in Hungary (where I live - I think the reason was exactly what you said: most people think they are childish. or at least that's the most common reaction I get when people see me playing with tamas), so I can more than understand you
Yeah they stopped selling them years ago here in the UK. It's a shame really. I guess people here think it's too kiddy but I disagree. I just had to order a new tamagotch from an international seller from Japan costing me at least £50. Disappointing.
all my new generation tamas are from abroad, most of them found by luck at flea markets or - if new - bought years after their release, at a reduced price (I just don't have the money to order new ones, shipping&handling usually costs more then the tama itself )... I wish they came back here, but I doubt that's going to happen, partly for the above reason, partly because they are too expensive for the average local pocket.

Though, I don't think spamming them with emails will necessarily resolve the issue. They probably aren't selling them for a reason - and if it's in the UK - I'm sorry, I probably wouldn't be much help cause I'm in the US so sadly if I said I would buy one somewhere in the UK locally, that would be lying.... :<
If it's something else, I would try and help in any way I can though. But like I said, I'm not sure what this is about and I don't think spamming would help.

When they reply to what, exactly? Tamagotchis are no longer discontinued in the UK, and there isn't too much evidence of discontinuations elsewhere.
tell us when they reply (if they do)

Bandai is being really ridiculous about their markets. It seems as if enough people have interest about Tamas in the UK (I'm from US) Also, they won't give TMGC+C to the US, for unknown reasons. BUT there have been enough complaints already, so I don't see why they won't do it. There really shouldn't be a problem with translation, it isn't that hard. Its a bit unfair that Japan gets the latest and greatest stuff, and all the other countries get completely separate stuff and Bandai probably hasn't done enough market research. EVERY person I have talked to that isn't in Japan who likes Tamas has said that they would love a colour tama. I don't know about you people, but I would most definitely fork over however much just to get a colour tama.
Agreed - I would also hope they wouldn't d**k us around in any way by making it a fortune plus arm & leg to purchase.
I'd much rather have it only be $30-$40, maybe even $50-$60, as I know it would be highly worth it. But, ... it might be a little too much to ask for, haha.
