My dad continued the obsession ^-^ Every time a new version came out (I didn't go online to check) my dad would go to Toys R Us and buy me the version and when I went to bed I'd find it under my pillow But yeah after v5 my dad stopped buying them for me because 1. I'm "too old" to buy more and 2. I didn't like Music Star....I still play my Tamas though

So...you're a Tamagotchi fan, right?
Otherwise you wouldn't be on this site.
Anyway, how DID you come to like Tamas? How did you find out about them? Why did you want them, and how did you get your first one?
With me, it's a loooooong story. There was this new magazine I like called Little Angel. I got the first issue when I was 7 years old. I liked it. I got all the issues after that until something caught my eye. The CUTEST critters in the UNIVERSE! It was an article about version 2 and it showed characters like Mametchi, Young Mimitchi, and Ichigotchi and they were SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute! I wanted one! But Mama said to wait until they were cheaper.
Then version 3 came out but I never got a chance to get that...then v4 came out when I was almost 8.
I KNEW Mama was getting one for my birthday! I could hardly wait. So I got it a day before my 8th birthday.
It was a blue one with Mametchi on it. I loved it. It was so fun. I spent every waking hour tending to my virtual pet. I got Tensaitchi!
From that day on, I bought every Tama version and stuff that was released. And I bought every Little Angel issue after that, for making me a Tama fan, even though it's not in the magazine anymore.
Here's what it looks like:
I still have it. It's broken to bits. I remember when it stopped working, I cried and cried...I will keep it forever...

Wow...I got my first Tama in the exact same month as you...

Ironically... It wasn't until they came Back as Connections. I got my pair and wanted a new one each time I saw a new version.... I like that I have one of each connection atleast. So, now I just watch for new versions (Or in Bandai's favor now-a-days....) or patterns I don't have or like. In some cases... I figure I can paint them if I do end up with doubles. (Like Music Stars, most of the ones I have I see in the stores if I do at all...)

Then I moved to another country, and my Gotchi started collecting dust. I found it last year and bought a new battery for it, but sadly, it doesn't seem to work anymore ;___; I'm still a Tama fan through and through.

I was one of the little kids who went psycho over the 1996/1997 release of the Tamagotchi in Australia. I was 6 years old and I can't really remember how I even came about discovering what a Tamagotchi was. I remember seeing kids have them at school, I'm guessing I just went along with the craze.
I do recollect that I had asked my Mum for one, perhaps on a Thursday afternoon (I have a photo of myself in my sports uniform with my digital pet, and sports day was Friday) and she took me down to the Toy Store to choose one. I ended up getting one of those fake ones, as Mum was not going to fork out a heap of money for something I was only (supposedly) going to play with for two minutes. I had the choice between the fish pet, or dog. I chose dog.
I remember having this digital pet, thinking I was the coolest person on the planet. That night, my Mum, Dad and I went out for dinner and I remember sitting at the table and looking across - there was a guy who was at least 20 years old playing with one. I remember the dog pet was incredibly hard to keep alive - and it died when I got home. The natural response of a 6 year old? I cried. Dad did come to the rescue, helping me understand how to feed it, etc.
My friends and I used to love showing our pets off. But at lunch time, we never played with the pet - we used the clock on it to time ourselves running!
The craze died down. My friend received a proper Tamagotchi from her Mum when she was in year 4, after a trip overseas. My friend and I just laughed at it most of the time, because she kept getting the same character ALL the time. Unfortunately, the little thing got put through the wash. We were pretty devastated, it was a good spare time activity when class was boring.
I ended up getting a few Digimons over the years, they were pretty cool. ^^ I loved those.
In 2005, I remember Mum bringing in the catalogues from the mail. I opened a K-Mart one - and they were advertising the new Tamagotchi Connection V1. I freaked. They were being released as part of the massive K-Mart toy sale they do every year. I asked Mum to buy me one, and handed her the money. I told her that she needed to get there early because they might go like crazy.
As luck would have it, I woke up the morning of the sale, sick. Sick = day off school = me actually going down town to buy one. Finally! I had my own Tamagotchi!
I kept collecting from that moment. Sure, I've had some pretty massive breaks in my collecting phase, but we will see what happens.
Sorry for the long post. ^^
