I think tamagotchis were originally intended for girls, but the later versions seem to have been generalised for both genders.
Initially Digimons were meant to be the virtual pet for boys, with tamagotchis being for the girls - mostly because Digimon required less care and have capability to battle each other.

Some of what you say is true Blue_angel, but you are forgetting one thing :P

They are both japanese inventions, and I know that the culture their is one type of unisex :P
Alot of boys/men there do some of the things girls do, like wear furry suits, watch romantic animes, play with tamagotchis,
and the like. Japanese people tend to think differently than we do, so they didn't mean for it to be a girl only invention.

It just happened to be accepted that way, in america, and europe countries.

It might be more obvious for the Digimon VPs indeed, but i've had one, which was very desired
by alot of my girl friends, they even wishlisted it on various webshops, and on holidays :P

They even hinted me on various occassions to buy one for them, for lets say their birthday, or christmas.

I feel that your gender doesn't matter! :ichigotchi: I am a boy and I LOVE Tamagotchis! I just received my Tamagotchi iD L In the mail! I love it to bits! Also at my school, being different is considered cool! However i live in Australia that may be different to where you come from! <_<

Hmm...I noticed there are a lot of boys who are afraid TMGC is too girly, but I am a girl who is worried that TMGC is too boyish! There are some anime episodes that are so boyish..
Anyway, you can easily tell Tamagotchi is not just for girls. If it was, the main character would be a girl and it would be all pink and flowery and all that stuff. So, Tamagotchi is equally for boys and girls. Don't worry about it! My brothers like Tamagotchi (mostly the show) and I used to see a lot of boys with Tamagotchis.

I think tamas are for both genders... it doesn't matter. They all have fun characters, competitive games, etc. Just some people think it's for girls, because it's more geared to girls now.... maternal instincts!! lol. They have all these super-girly designs now....I only like a couple of them. It's just like GBA and NDSLite and PSP and XBox.... they can be for either gender. Tamagotchis are just different colors, and a lot smaller;.

I agree with everyone in this thread that Tamagotchis are for boys and girls. The colors/patterns/designs may not always be gender neutral, but at least there's enough designs out there that can appeal to both genders. :mimitchi: :mametchi:

I may be a girl, but I also enjoy the Digimon Tamagotchis, even though they were geared towards boys. The characters are just as fun and the evolutions are always a mystery. So, if a girl can play with Digimon Tamas then a boy should be able to play with Tamagotchis too. :)

I think tamagotchis are made for girls, but it's totally ok for boys to use them too. But most of the shell designs today are overly girly. I think Bandai originally wanted tamas to be for girls, but it's become for both genders. Now that they've made a PRINCESS Spacy iD L, it's clear that it was intended for girls, but there is nothing wrong with a male owning one of these, or any Tama! :)

Many boys at my school started to play with tamagotchis because it was about the only thing that they would be able to talk to girls about. After a while the boys actually enjoyed playing with them and they had then done it so on a Friday lunch time they would all play together and you wouldn't see any boys playing sports at lunch on Friday. :kuribotchi:

I think its funny how a company that should want as many people as possible buying their awesome toy messes it up by mainly marketing it towards one group. Oh well we don't have to buy into it.

This has been asked time and time again. tamagotchis are for everyone! the media in japan may target theirs as for girls only but western civilization has come out with many boy themed tamagotchis. Tamagotchis are for everyone no matter what race/age/gender/ we are all equal :)
