my question is if you are over the age of.... lets say 10, why do you stil play with tamagotchi's. don't take me the wrong way. i LOVE my tama's and i think it's an awesome toy, but a lot of people would be very mean to older people who still play with tama's.
so my first question: (remember this is all for people who are older than 10) has any one ever said anything mean to you about having tama's?
my family has. they didn't want me waisting my money on something that i would put in a draw and not use (i still use all my tama's!)
my second question: what do you say to these people?
i proved to them that to me it wasn't a waist of money.
my 3rd question: why do you still play with tama's?
for me it calms me. i can only play with tama's on holidays as when im a school i can not take care of them. when im at school i am angry and short tempered. when i am on holidays i am calm and i am a fun person to be around.
merry cristmas every one!

Nope! Or perhaps I'm lucky.

my second question: what do you say to these people?

If I have someone say that to me, I'd probably tell them that it was a hobby that I enjoyed. Self pride, I guess?

my 3rd question: why do you still play with tama's?

I enjoy it. I like to keep one or two "main" Tamagotchis. On my breaks (like holiday break), I'll be home more and probably start another. I enjoy seeing what characters I'll end up with, and that alone is fun enough for me to use one.

:)

1. Nope
2. N/A
3. Because the Tamagotchi anime is amazing and it makes me want to play with Tamagotchis forever!

Well, I'm 11, and these are my answers:

Has any one ever said anything mean to you about having Tamas? Yes, a lot of people. Everyone who isn't my friend except for people who don't know I like Tamas or don't even know me, and most of my family sometimes do. The only exceptions are my grandparents.

What do you say to these people? If they're family members, nothing because I don't want to get into trouble. If they're people at school, I usually say something like "do you even know how to spell Tamagotchi?" or "if you think you know so much about Tamas, how many buttons do they have?" People usually answer them wrong so I can prove they don't know a thing about Tamagotchis.

Why do you still play with Tamas? I don't usually, just sometimes when I'm bored. Mostly I draw Tamas and collect them, and post on Tamagotchi forum sites like this one.

Question 1: No not really! My little brother sometimes, but hes just a pain and to me his opinion on tamas doesn't matter :D
Question 2: If someone does say something mean, i usually ignore them or say "whatever you shouldn't judge them before you try them" That usually shuts them up!
Question 3: Because it is a very fun hobby of mine and i enjoy it. They are like my children so of course i have to take care them and give them some love <3.

I felt compelled to answer these questions. :)

1) Not many people have said mean things to me when I have my Tamagotchi. I remember in year 4 I was picked on for having a Digimon, but that was after they were banned from school (everyone had them, so I don't know why they picked on me). My parents don't care, my boyfriend doesn't care, in my adult life no one has really picked on me. Maybe one friend has called me a nerd, but... yeah.

2) I don't really have people say mean things to me about Tamagotchi. When I'm at Uni, people usually ask "Oh, what's that?" and I explain to them that it's a Tamagotchi. Most responses are "Oh, that's so cute!" or "Oh, I remember those!" I openly have them out on my desk and carry them around the lecture hall/tutorial class/library etc. for everyone to see - and frankly I don't care.

3) I guess I still play with them because I genuinely love them. I never owned one of the originals when I was little, so when they were re-released...I went a bit crazy and bought a few. I currently play with a Tamagotchi iD L English, and just... I don't know. I was 6 when they were released (P1 and P2) versions, and I've grown with them. It's nostalgic. ^_^

1. My mom, my dad and my little brother.
2. " Umm... Its okay right? I just loved tamagotchi and they're adorable. Tamas actually had interesting features."
3. I think they're adorable, had interesting features, and its fun to play it.

No matters what's your age for play tamas. I'm 13, my friends like tamas too. Umm.. This question bring back my memories when I collected Tamagotchi over 5 Tamas ( the reason why I collected Tamas are I lovd Tamas , they're cute. Another reason is, my Tamas are can't be used. I forgot to took out my Tamas in my pocket, and my Tamas found in the wash machine )
