I cannot really think of any reasons for becoming uninterested in Tamas. Even if there are other things that someone enjoys more, they can still have many different interests, including Tamas. :)

I don't get "uninterested" per se. I just have a phase where I get bored of them or I have other things to do, and don't have the time to take care of my tamas.

I just kinda grew out of them. No particular reason really.

I haven't lost interest yet though, but one thing, my V4.5 takes 2 weeks just to raise 1 generation. ):

My loss of interest was due to the fact that I was just a 6 year old, and it became hard for me to take care of Tama's. They taught me responsibility, I see now, and recently I have gotten back into the tamagotchi's and Tama-Go's. I am SO glad I did! :D

I was obsessed with v-pets for about 10 years. I lost interest because a few things.

1.Tamagotchi got to be to much like a game in newer versions instead of a pet for me.
2.I burned myself out on V-pets, I remember having four going at once when I was younger.
3.Maturity has some part in it to though. I still like to start up my v-pets once in a while but not as much as I used to.

Tamagotchi used to be unisex, and for people of all ages! But now it's just for little girls.

Princess Spacey. What a unisex, mature name! :D *sarcasm*

Well, I NEVER EVER lost interest in Tamagotchi in the least, and it baffles me that there are so many people of this site who do not constantly run at least three Tamas... but I guess that's just me. ;)

Anyway, I don't know about "losing interest", but what's really irritating is how all the new, girly characters are overtaking everything (Lovelitchi, Moriritchi, Melodytchi, and Kizunatchi). I definitely prefer Mametchi, Memetchi, and Kuchipatchi... I'm sick of all these new characters. XD

I am not uninterested... I just lost interest in US tamas after TAMAGO. I can not stand this version... it is so SOOOO dull compared to Music Star which I loved.


Hence I have switched my interest in Japanese versions. :3

School. I have no chance of being able to look after my Tamas in term-time, my school days are too long. So I paused 'em and left them in a box, and i kinda forgot about them. Now, though, I'm on summer hols, so I remembered my Tamagotchis (a V5 and a V6) and decided to do a scientific-style research project on them - I'm really into science. That's what rekindled my interest in them and now I'm hooked - I managed to get my 1st pure family on my V5 today :-)

I think I get uninterested because I mainly run them for cool characters.
v4.5 must despise me because Ive raised many generations and still NO tamas in the uramame family.... <_<
v4....meh. Ive had almost every character and a ton of universals.
I really want a v3 because that was what I had when I was much younger...I loved watching them sleep and seeing the idle animations :D

Hmm, I get tired of the Tama-Go when I have a character I don't particularly like. Right now I have a Pipotchi, and she's not one of my favorites, so I tend to neglect her a bit.

However, I simply can't put my Music Star down; I have a Kuromametchi on that one right now, and he's won two No.1 Ranking awards from the Gotchi King for jazz and latin music! Really, I just find the Music Star to be a fun version. I haven't gotten bored of it, yet.

My reasons for losing interest in Tamagotchis? Good thread, Well back when Tamas first came out my sister had a school trip to America, Tama's weren't over here in the UK yet (1997) so everyone was talking about them, She brought me back one so that i had a Tama before anyone else, It was so awesome!
After a couple of months all of my friends had them, we were all in the last year of primary school (Not sure what the American equivalent is but aged about 11) After the summer holidays had finished we all went to high school, with the long break of summer holidays and the more "grown up" world of high school Tama's seemed to just fade away.

It wasn't a lack of interest, it was merely a part of growing up, new times, new places, new people, new things, all of these factors contributed to my own disconnection with my Tama, and i'm pretty sure the same basic reasons apply for most people here.
Great thread btw

(P.S. I just realise you'll be able to work out my age from this post lol)
