In a way, you can say that this was my first Tamagotchi and I still consider it a part of my little collection.
Anyways, when I started to grow more interested in Tama as a whole, I tried finding out what the toy was.
It came with little candies inside, and the back of it says © BANDAI 1997 TOYZ 'N TREATZ MADE IN CHINA
I always figured it was from a kids meal or something, but I haven't been able to find anything like it online.
Here are some pictures... (the cover art has seen better days)
It's had a homemade keychain attached so that I could hang it with my others.

Wow... I really don't know what that is. I've never seen a tamagotchi with candy inside. I have an angelgotchi, and the icons seem the same, but the shell is definitely different. And the screen is obviously not real, since there appears to be no room for a circuit board and all that. (I'm sure you know that though. xD) Maybe some kind of promotion toy? Like one of those ones they gave out at McDonalds? Or maybe it's fake..?
I've tried searching for McDonalds Tamagotchi toys... the only similar ones I've found are these -
I don't know about like Burger King or anything though... other food chains may have done something similar. Except their logo isn't anywhere on the toy... usually it is.

Those were just a Tamagotchi Candy toy - They came out as a promo for Angelgotchis. The "toy" was actually just made to look like an Angelgotchi and hold (what I assume anyway) were pez-like candies. In the Angelgotchi Tama you give your Tama candies and I think that's where the idea came from.
They were packaged on a card with a plastic cover over it that you pealed off and that's about it.... People still sell them sealed, but why would people want like 16-17 year old candy??? XD

these are the ones i found on ebay. they are brand new. its a set of 5 for $35 plus shipping. not sure if someone would pay that much for 5 cases that hold candy in the shape of a tamagotchi though.
