Hello, i thought that i would post here to show a list of actual FAKE Tamagotchis, im going to put picture of the one to avoid, and what to look for to identify a fake, because im tired of people posting items in this section of things that arent trying to pass themselfs off as Tamagotchi's, but are in face their own product :) ;)

Pics of fakes:

What to look for to avoid and identify fakes:
  • Look for the BanDai logo, if it is on the package, its likely a REAL Tamagotchi!

This is the BanDai logo (and the one likley to go on future Tamas):

:D
If you see any other logos such as:

or anything else, then its FAKE!


Now that you know what to look for, if its not trying to sell itself as a "Tamagotchi" than DONT POST IT IN THIS SECTION!

You are missing some V2, V3, V5 and V4 designs...I own the following:

Translucent purple V4 with cobwebs and yellow buttons - bought in UK, 2006
White V4 with pink flowers/green leaves and pink buttons - bought in UK, 2006
Pink/purple camoflauge V2 with pink buttons - bought off eBay, 2011
Light green V3 (design worn off) with dark green buttons - bought in UK, 2006
Yellow with Tama characters V5 and green buttons - bought off eBay, 2011
(Friend owns this) Pink V5 with light colour chalk design and white buttons - bought off ebay, 2011

I don't own any fake Tamas, they all say BanDai on the back. Please note that the V5s are both Oceania V5s, since the codes for Oceania V5s work on them.
