I've had a couple ton of tamagotchis ruined by my cousin.

1. A 4 year old chipped my 15th anniversary iD L.
2. 4 year old rubbed off all of the silver off of my pink iD L and purple iD L.
3. Big chip in my Profy.
4. Severe chip in my V1.
5. Damaged MS 4x.
6. Put garbage in collection drawers. (It smells like banana peels and rotten cheese. :rolleyes: )
7. Spilt nail polish over MS.
8. Removed all design off black MS.
9. Killed several of my TMGOs pixels by dropping down the stairs and thinking it was a ball.
10. Nail polish on V4.5's antennae.
11. Put stickers all over my TMGOs case.
12. Took apart MS and almost bent circuit board in half.
13. Glue all over pouches.
14. Gum in package.
15. Ripped TMGO package.
16. Bent off Memetchi figure's head and arm off. ;-;|l| ---> :(
17. Paint scratched off of MS code

OCD ALERT
I usually don't let people handle my Tamas, so they can't really 'harm' them.
My counsins dropped my iD L on wood once, though. : (

I have ABSOLUTELY NO TODDLER COUSINS. They're all teenagers, lucky me, except for a few new baby second cousins. But they won't grow up to be Tama abusing types, I don't think. So I've never had any Tamas messed up by other people. Well, unless you count the time my brother traded a V4 for my V6 and he killed the V6...but that doesn't really count since the V6 wasn't mine at the time he killed it...

Also, a method for stopping people from coming in your room and get at your Tamas: When a little kid is round at your house and you don't want them getting in your room, lock the door while you're in the room, then climb out of the window, leaving it open. Enter the house again through another door. To enter your room again, climb back through the window. Hopefully the little kid you want to keep out won't actually climb through the window to get in unless they're both REALLY smart and REALLY mean! The method's worked easily for me several times and saved my collection (21 Tamas and a few accessories) from getting ruined.

D: I wouldn't climb out of my window considering it's 30 feet from the ground and my room doesn't have a lock... ):

I just don't let people play with my Tamas, and I don't spend time with anyone younger than 19 so I don't really have to worry about that problem. I've dropped my Tamas before or had them fallen off a table, which resulted with a few scuffs on the shell. No big.

What I'd do if I had younger cousins coming to visit, I'd pause all my Tamas except one and tuck them away in a drawer, and just carry the one around with you, and don't play with it while your cousins are in sight or else they'll get jealous and whiny. God I hate kids, I have such a temper so it's best to just not let them get close. XD They'll regret it.

I don't think i have ever had that many people try to 'harm' my tamas. Mainly because i have always kept them away from people, people like toddlers and some of my friends who i don't think will like tamas and may try to break them o.o.

The only time i can remember where my tamas have being in harms way is when my brother was quite young and he threw my old V4 that is now gone :( acrosss the room and it hit the wall pretty hard. Luckily all that did was leave some scratches and dents but the actual tama was fine :)

If I break it, I cry. If you break it, you die. (kidding. XD)

If I don't trust you, then you don't even have the privelage of touching my belongings.
When I was in school, I almost never let the other kids borrow my pencils and other things, because I knew they'd come back to me broken or sharpened down to a nub. XD

Children are definitely banned from touching stuff, unless I know them enough to trust that they won't be disrespectful to my property.

Sometimes accidents happen, and that really doesn't bother me.
If someone breaks something of mine due to neglect or carelessness, that's when I get upset.

Oh yes... I had a neice grab a few of my tamas I had on me... They didn't toss them or anything but they did have stuff on their hand.... Nothing too bad, just greasy. I always watch my tamas now with them around. They just wanted to see what I play with all the time and they were young... They had a excuse. It would be possible to get them into Tamas I think... But they would want the colors I have... Not happening anytime soon.

It wasn't harming them, but it did make me think a bit about it. When kids come over here, they know my room is off limits. If they are even upstairs, I am with them. They couldn't find my tamas even if they looked really hard. Har. Might find the normal digital pets, but not my tamas.

I never let people handle my tamas unless I really trust them, especially with my iD L. The only person I really let handle them would be my parents if I'm showing them how to do something and Violetchilluvr3. ;) When I was little some of my friends dropped my different tamas and got scratches on them, but Inhave made it a goal to not let anyone handle my iD L if they might drop it because that is one tama I really do NOT want dropped!

And Memetchiluva464. ;D
Nowadays I only let fellow Tama owners handle my iD L, but I would let my friends who don't play with Tamas handle a connection of mine. (As in, not a Connection of Missvioletchi's that she's letting me borrow. ;D)

Ah, YES. ;-;

1. Scratched off silver on my iD L
2.Toddler dropped my Music Star(s) into a bucket of paint, and they unexpetedly started sizzling. O_O
3.Major chip in Tama-go
4.Cousins rubbed off a little bit of paint on my Tama Profy, as well as scratching the screen

So, yep. Only a few.

Started falling over 10 times each tama. :rolleyes:

Reminds me of my brother (who is younger than me, NOT 15 like I used to say), he got into Tamas really young when I first got mine aged 5. I lent him a V3, and several Tamas went back and forth between us. He always used to follow in my footsteps and get into the same things as I did. But it got annoying, because my brother always wanted EVERYTHING I had, he wanted a go on everything I owned, and I had no version of Tama to myself because he always had everything I had. So I got a Palm Treo phone hoping for downloads to myself. But no, he comes along and sees my cool download game and asks for downloads. I can never say no, so I know what it feels like when your cousins beg you for a go on your Tama.

Well my friend got mad at something his parents said causing him to throw some magazines that some of my tamagotchis were on (that includes a music star,v4.5,15th IDL and a p2) the P2 got the worst damage it lost and recovered its sound and got its graphics messed up (you can still see the charater but theres a big black block around him sort t of) at the end hes parents got me a new p2 =P

Well, I keep my Tamagotchis safe and sound and my little 4-year-old brother isn't even interested in messing about with them. Once, though, I decided to let my 8-year-old brother use a Tamagotchi but he threw it on the floor twice due to not being able to win the jumping rope game. That was the last time I let him use it! You really ought to protect such expensive, valuable Tamagotchis, especially that 15th Anniversary iD L.

I wear my 15th iD L on a lanyard too. I originaly have some charms that have O ring attached on it, so I hook my lanyard on.

I usually don't let anyone play with my tamas. However, one time I left them on the table and my nephew wanted to see them, so he picked them up without my consent. He didn't harm them, but he started playing with them. I was a little upset that he touched them, because I didn't want him to harm them. None of my cousins in the Philippines really know what a tamagotchi is, because they don't own one.

I assure you, any cousins over the age of 9 will not harm your Tamas. I should know, I'm 10 and I have 21 Tamas myself and I think I currently take pretty good care of them. I would never ever touch an older (or younger!) cousin's stuff, no matter what it was, without their willing consent, and neither would anyone I know who is about my age. So you can definitely rest assured about that.

Also, I don't know if you realise it, but you're getting along with lots of people here and actually the average age here is probably about 14. You'll get a taste of sensible, orderly under 19s here on TamaTalk ;)

The one thing you never want to do with me is threaten my pets. That includes both my flesh and blood pets and my electronic pets. I am a fairly easygoing person and I can put up with a lot but if you threaten my pets I will snap. I have informed everyone around me that if they intentionally harm any of my electronic pets they will recieve no forgiveness. Ever. My electronic pets mean a lot to me and if someone harms them knowing how much it would hurt me then I have no use for them.
