So there is no age limit in Tamas just like there is no age limit on your heart and soul!!!

PS- In Japan this would not be an issue...

i really like how you said that! :)
i have a firm belief in never growing up.
A reason why i love japan's culture so much is you can be a woman and openly like cute and fun things and it's not a problem.
i am looked at weird even when i just wear a hello kitty shirt here in america, but in japan hello kitty is popular with females of every age.

@kikasbombshell.....yes, so true about it not being an issue in japan! same goes for music, i couldn't understand why backstreet boys kept going to japan to release cd's n stuff, then one day i saw what their pop music is there and most of it is still girl and boy groups! hehe where as here i just get picked on for liking something that should have been a 'teenage fad'.

You can't get too old for tamagotchis unless you want to. I play with mine everyday, as I have been doing so since I was 5. My parent totally supports it, since it was half of my childhood. My mom sometimes even takes care of them while I'm at school. XD

I'm going to be fourteen soon, and I have been obsessed with Tamagotchis ever since I got my first one at the age of seven. I don't plan to ever stop taking care of my 'gotchis. I believe that nobody is too old for them (^u^).

I played with Tamas since I was EIGHT! And I still play with them! I hope I can live with tamas forever. I will die with them on my heart.

If you read on the packaging on the Tamagotchi (well im reading the music start packaging) it says "8+". it doesnt say "8-14" or anything like that. But you can never give up anything that makes you happy

There is no specific age to play on a tamagotchi. Some people on these forms are over 20. Everybody can enjoy tamagotchies. Nobody is TOO old for them.

Umm I am 15 and my dad says I am too old for tamagotchis. I got soo pi**ed at him lol I yelled at him and told him he was to old to be acting like he's in his 20's Renting a room and avoiding responsibility for his son so Now he doesn't say anything *cough* Loser*cough* sorry my dad is not a subject I can talk about without going on, anyways I don't think you can be too old if you love it do it, as long as you take care of your responsibilties, A.K.A Taxes, Work, School, Rent, or Children. If you take care of all those things You can play with those big baby legos for all I care, lol. seriously If you do right by those things then your anadult in my eyes.

is there an age where you are just too old to play with your tamagotchi? is it just a matter of growing out of it like a phase?

i dont think that the tamagotchi is too young for anyone but with that said it might be a little weird for a fourty year old to still play with one.

what do you think

I don't think that there's and age limit to playing with tamagotchis because many adults keep child hood toys such as a teddy, so having a tamagotchi would be fine to have.

This has been asked time and time again. tamagotchis are for everyone! the media in japan may target theirs as for little girls only. Tamagotchis are for everyone no matter what race/age/gender/ we are all equal :)

So long as you don't neglet your responsibilities as an adult, I think it's totally acceptable for adults to use tamagotchi. Personally I wouldn't use my TamaGo in public simply because it looks a bit silly, but I carry my v4 in my purse most of the time and have no problem being seen with it. Similarly, I have several friends in their 20s who still play with legos, so there are several toys adults can play with without it being weird.

I must confess I find it a bit troubling when someone is SUPER obsessed with them regardless of age, but that applies to pretty much any toy or hobby. I think playing with one casually, having a small collection and being a regular on a forum like this is no big deal.

I wish I knew more older people with them though, I'm 20 and I'm the only person I know who uses them! T^T

I'm 26 and I starting playing with Tamagotchis again a few months ago. There were years and years when I completely forgot about them. Now that I'm older, I started collecting and it's so much fun! Like, I remember when Tamagotchis first appeared in 1997, I got to experience them at their prime and now there's all these color ones. I'm glad I got to witness the evolution of the awesome little gadgets. It doesn't matter how old you are, as long as you love it. :)

i'm turning 27, and just got an iD L. I've always loved these virtual pets when I was in primary school,
i wanted to get one a few years ago when I saw the tamagotchi connections, but I didn't.
Seeing the colored tamagotchis made me really want one because I can't resist the design
and the colored screen! I don't take it out when i'm in public, haha.
