It looks like it could be a Japanese Entama - the beads on the key chain look like that on the Entama - and on the V4 Asia/Pacific tamas - they had beads on their key chain too. Here's a link to a tamablog - looks like they have a design just like it: http://www.blogagotc...ji and Ian.html

There were a huge number of different shell designs launched in different parts of the world for the V4/Jensei/Entama - if you google images you'll begin to see just how many different designs were produced - it's amazing.

Can you tell us what made you think it was a fake Tama (just out of curiosity)?

Actually, TamaMum, the shell design is actually a Japanese design, which most Europe designs are made to look like/similar to the Japanese designs, and the Japanese package of the EnTama is different the the Jinsei V4.

That's the European version of the V4.. It's a rare TA Jinsei.

I know this is real but MagicBoa...do you know there's some really stupid people out there who use the Banda logo just to earn hundreds of dollars?
Just wanted to tell you that..
Hee hee
But yes, the Bandai logo pretty much tells you most of the time that it's a real tamagotchi!
