I'm 19 now. Apparently my aunts got me several original tamagotchis when they came out, but I don't remember that.
I started playing them again around 12 years old? Maybe 13. I started with a v2.

I stopped after the tama go's and music stars, but I recently got back into it.

27 and I have had an on again off again relationship with Tamagotchi since 2007. Before that I was pretty obsessed and ran a few at a time. I usually start up a tamagotchi once a year now. Hoping to change that though, I ordered a tamagotchi iD l tonight and have plans on ordering a Tamagotchi P in the future.

19. :) I don't think anybody is ever too old for them...I think it's okay for everyone to have hobbies regardless of what they are and I don't think age should determine anything. :)

26 and just got back into them a few months ago :) I'm married have a 6 month old son, pay bills and have a full time demanding job and still love these little guys. A lot of people assume that when you have kids/get married/start a career that you are too old for toys...but I want to stay as young as I can and enjoy these things so I can enjoy them with my son when he is older. I'd rather be buried in a pile of GI Joes, cars and dinosaurs playing with my son than rambling on with a bunch of talking heads about politics :) i hope my son can enjoy my collection as much as I do when he gets a little older. My husband just shakes his head and says I'm cute when I get excited about tamagotchis or virtual pets lol. I find it interesting that a lot of people our age have recently been getting back into toys of our childhood. I bet there is something interesting psychology behind it.

AGREED! I will be 24 in july and I have two sons and a husband, im working two jobs and going to school full time right now and I LOVE tamagotchi's,video games I have every gaming console out there,i plai table top war games such as warhammer and forgeworld...my husband and I collect and paint the minatures. in fact they are all over my house haha my husbands and mine bedroom is Nintendo themed for the most part haha....to be honest I wouldn't trade any of it for the world! I always say that you should enjoy your life as much as you can,and just because you are grown doesn't mean your DEAD!

I think I might take the cake on this one, LOL. I am 26 and married and still play!  SO there is hope for everyone :)  I kept my collection going ever since I was a little kid when the first ones came out and over the years I'd buy a handful of each new version so my collection is getting pretty big, at least for me because I think last time I counted them all there were nearly 30 or so and there is about one from each version still in the packages.  I used to get embarrassed when someone would make fun of me for playing but I'm over it.  Matter of fact, last weekend we went on a family camping trip and when my brother and his gf laughed at me when I pulled one out of my tent I threw another at each of them and got them to start playing too!

I'm going to be buried with my Tamagotchis. They are a permanent part of my life. They'll be with me even when I'm old and in a nursing home.

Love my tamagotchis. They still give me that rush when I first discovered them in 1996/7. I'll be 28 in a month and some change.

Definitely. I'm in my mid-twenties and still love them to pieces. And actually, my younger brother (who's also above 16) loves them as well. I do sometimes get comments from strangers when they see me playing with it in public ("You're too old for that," etc), but to be honest, most of the comments I get are very positive. A lot of people talk about how much they used to enjoy them and think they're adorable. Some mention that they still play with them. So I don't think it's nearly as uncommon as some people (the negative ones) would make you think. Tamagotchis are downright cute and fun; what isn't to love about them?
