I think Bandai should've made more Tamagotchi videogames. I really enjoyed Tamagotchi connection corner shop (I like the dentist game xD) and it's sequel.

There are many, many tamagotchi video games out. Well, on Japan. :)

I'm a 21 year old female & I would not buy any of that stuff.
It could just be me but I think they're going about it the wrong way if that is their target age group.
I don't like graphic tees- I can't wear those to work & I wouldn't wear them out & about. Personally, I've just never liked graphic tees & I try to keep a more professional/tastefully stylish look most days. Why would I want tama make up? If I were a kid & wanted some play make up- yeah, sure. But I'll stick with well established brands whose whole "life" (no pun intended) is cosmetics. I also wouldn't buy tama furnishings for my house. That isn't the direction I'm trying to go with my home decor.
Maybe I just take myself a little too seriously or something, but I like Tamagotchi for the Tamagotchi. None of that stuff holds a place in my life.
Key chains & stuff would actually be pretty cool, I like key chains (I currently have a Hello Kitty key chain). Any little knickknacks that tastefully add a little fun & tell someone about your personality: I'm game. But as a professional adult in their target age group, I'm not interested in most of that stuff.
I'm pretty disappointed.
But that's just my 2 cents.

I completely agree.
Who would buy TAMAGOTCHI clothes? They normally go to the shops in the local shopping malls - I don't get who will buy Tamagotchi clothes. Plushes, keychains, Tamagotchis themselves are all whats in Tamagotchi. Before this project came in I didn't even think (even for a moment) that it was going to be about clothes. I'm sure it would of been fine if there were some Mametchi Clocks, Memetchi Pencil Toppers etc. Although I think clothes - well, its gone too far.

Could you just imagine having Tamagotchi furniture in your house?

This fake optimism really makes me sad.

BanDai America has nothing to do with this, they aren't making another toy probably. And if they are, it'll be based on the vintage series. Which quite frankly, I don't care about it.

Why can't it be based on what japan has been doing? :( I mean, the anime, arcade games.. But no, we won't be seeing any of that! Just more vintage crud! Cause you know, EVERYONE grew up with those and not the connection era or even the modern era! NOPE!


Without "that vintage crud" you wouldn't have the aspects of Tamagotchi you DO like. Keep that in mind. Without the success of the original there would be no connections, no anime, no new merchandise period.

Yes, and all of that stuff I do like from tamagotchi are stuck in Japan, which is where they innovate with each release. BanDai America's releases gone stale, and then they decided to go the cheap easy way and just market retro crap, cause you know, that's what IN right now!

You do make a good point. I do wish Bandai America would concentrate on improving Tamagotchi rather than just release a bunch of retro merchandise. Merchandising should be used to help make people aware of the product not replace the product entirely. Why have Tamagotchi clothes and furniture when actual Tamagotchis are nowhere to be seen on store shelves? I'm still hoping that an actual Tamagotchi is in the cards though. If it is it probably won't be announced until Toyfair early next year.

-_- There better be a new tamagotchi! I really don't want tacky furniture invading my room. All that Bandai is into is making money. I think I'd better start stocking up on tamagotchis before the prices go
BOOM!

Haha, I feel the need to feed it.
Maybe even walk it. Wipe the cushions.

That's some needy furniture.

Even releasing old versions is better. I would buy old versions if they were in stores, why can't they just do that?

I wonder why Bandai/SB has stopped releasing information about this line of products, considering they've participated in the Licensing Expo several months back?

Bandai seriously needs to do a customer survey to see what people ACTUALLY WANT.

Not some random bull about kids' makeup and furniture....

Obviously, there hasn't been any other information released about Tamagotchi LIFE.

Also, Tamatown is down.

Just what could Bandai be doing? At least they should've said something on their blog to keep us updated.

I actually really like the jacket, it's very retro (I'm almost 27). The other clothes look totally normal to me, too, and yes, appropriate for my age (maybe we live in different worlds? lol). But I wouldn't be able to tell it has anything to do with tamagotchi, actually, more with Atari and general early 90's pop culture.
Sounds like Bandai is scared of releasing actual toys. While I'm not in the US so Idk how things are there, guess they don't see demand for the virtual pets much. They closed Bandai Entertainment too which released dvds, manga, etc who knows what they're planning now. I was hoping those Aquapets would inspire them to release pet stuff outside of Japan.

I wish Bandai would create or bring back to life some of the older Tamagotchis but refreshed. How about a Devilgotchi and Angelgotchi Connection? They grow and you connect them to battle perchance? Good vs. Evil Posted ImagePosted Image

With the new Furby appearing on Christmas hot toy lists it wouldn't surprise me at all if Furby's success inspires Bandai to get off their butts and release a new and improved Tamagotchi. I mean these are the two hottest electronic pets ever made. It'd be great to have them both on store shelves again!
