I live in a tropical climate so it is difficult to keep things nice over a long period of time.
All white plastic will eventually turn yellow here. My tamagotchi had this happen.
Is there any way I can reverse the damage?
How can I prevent yellowing on my new tamagotchis?
Also, I noticed on eBay and through various pictures that the straps on entamas and uratamas tend to turn yellow. Here is an example (this is not mine):
How can I keep the strap on my new uratama looking new?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Also, here's a 2-part youtube video about why plastic yellows (it's a chemical reaction) and how to reverse the yellowing (by another chemical reaction).
Thanks to -Ra- for the youtube links.
Since both methods involve liquids, if you're going to try either, the Tamagotchi should be disassembled, so the circuit board and screen doesn't get wet.

As for keeping them from yellowing... I would keep them in a card board box. That or a thermal lunch box might help too. I'm sure the thermal would help since those are fairly common. (Like a fabric lunch box or fabric water bottle container)
