My Tamas haven't made much progress because I have been sick for the past couple days and they have been paused a lot. I'm still sick, but I'm well enough that I can keep them off pause today.

My V5 has spent way too much time on pause the past few days. That ends now. I don't know how far they are from changing form because I don't know how being paused effects the growth. I have to admit I've had them paused for so long that I half expected to come back and see that they had left. I've had other Tamas do that after spending a couple days on pause. My V5 guys are loyal, I'll give them that.

My guys changed into their teen forms today. They are a Chamametchi and a Mamekatchi. I'm surprised because even though I've done nothing different in caring for this generation they changed into totally different characters than their other selves did. Does being second generation unlock additional characters? I don't know. Either way I'm happy with the results. I can't wait to see their adult forms.

 

My collection may be growing by leaps and bounds soon. I was introduced to a way to use paypal without having to link my bank account to it. If the world of Ebay is open to me there is no limit to what I can get. If this works I'll be able to rebuild my old Tamagotchi and Furby collections. But first on the agenda? A Tamagotchi P's. Stay Tuned.

Last night my Tamas and I watched Puss In Boots. They seemed to enjoy it but I've seen better. After that I put them to bed and I watched Poltergeist. It's one of those movies everybody's seen and loves but I never got around to watching. It was a great movie. The 80's may have been a crap decade for animation but the movies were top notch. Good thing the Tamas were asleep. Horror movies might not be the best thing to subject growing Tamagotchis to. But then my electronic pets need to get accustomed to them. I watch them all the time. Besides even if they had been awake I doubt it would have bothered them. They're made of sterner stuff than that. And considering they're always hanging around my neck while I'm drawing gory pictures for fun they're used to seeing violence depicted.

My V5's chain broke yesterday. I considered retiring it but I realized I'd miss the little fart if I did. It looks like the chain may be fixable. My guys are still the same as usual. When they reach adulthood I'm thinking about leaving them as adults longer before putting them through the reincarnation process that is dating. This is mostly because getting the bonding level up is a pain in the butt even with cheats and I want to put it off a while longer. They're still in the teen stage right now and they still have a bit before they grow up.

 

In other Virtual Pet news I may have found a way to acquire some vintage Furbys. Not entirely sure if it'll work but I'm hoping it will. If this works I may also be able to score vintage Tamas for cheap as well,.

My plan to acquire a few vintage Furbys fell through. I'll probably end up trying to order a P's in a week or so. At least I hope I'll be able to. I'm not 100% sure it will work out to where I can.

 

My Tamas are fine. Their growth has been a bit stunted because they've been paused a lot. They missed a good movie last night. I caught The Avengers on a free preview thing but the gotchi's were asleep/paused at the time. It came on right about the time my Tamas turn in. My white Furby watched it with me though.

 

I'm surprised how long the battery has lasted on my V5. It's still going strong after over a month. I have a spare battery for when the current one runs out. When that one runs out I may retire my V5 for awhile. Hopefully by that time I'll have a P's. But I've spent more time with my V5 than I've ever spent with a Tama before so I'm kind of attached to it. It's special now.

I have not been well lately so my V5 has spent a lot of time on pause. I have no idea when they are due to change. I also don't think I'll be getting a P's after all. I've decided I don't want to start ordering online again and I'm not even sure if the card I planned to use would even work on Amazon. So it looks like unless Bandai releases new Tamas stateside my collection will remain at four. My V5, My V3 and my two TamaGos.

Another day with no change. I know it's because they've been paused so much.  I've decided to go ahead and try to order my Tamagotchi P's when my check comes in. Amazon took the card when I put the information in that add a payment method section. Of course I immediately removed the card afterward. There's no money on it yet, but I still don't like leaving card information online. I've never done this. I just punch in all the information manually at the time of my order.

 

If I am lucky enough to be able to actually order a P's that means I'll eventually have two Tamas going. The P's and my V5. I have one more battery for my V5 and once both batteries run out I may retire it for awhile and concentrate on my P's. But my V5 will always be special because it's the Tama I've spent the most time with out of all the Tamas I've ever had. It's in my personal virtual pet hall of fame right alongside my first Furby, Toh Loo Kah, my Tiger Striped Furby, Optimus, my Aibo and my Gizmo Furby.

My V5 has not changed. Today I ordered a yellow Tamagotchi P's from Amazon. It should be here Tuesday and I can't wait! I'll be running it alongside my old reliable V5. I think in the coming months I'll be spending more on Tamagotchi than Furby. The newest Furbys are rumored to be over $90. I can't afford that so I'll start trying to expand my Tama collection instead. I'll probably buy another P's next month.

My V5 guys just reached adulthood. I was on the phone when I heard that familiar changing sound. I now have a Mametchi ( again ) and a Chantotchi.  I'm going to leave them as adults for awhile longer this time. Mainly because I hate raising bonding. Even with cheats it's kind of a pain in the but. But I also want them to be fairly easy to care for in the coming days. My P's will be here Tuesday and since I don't read Japanese I'm going to have to take a lot of time to figure things out. I won't have as much time to concentrate on my V5. I'll marry my V5s and begin the whole reincarnation process again after I've mastered my Tama P's.

Not much to report on regarding my V5 guys. They're grown now and I'm going to keep them grown for awhile. In two days I'll have a P's. This log should become fairly interesting then. I don't read Japanese and all I know about P's is the stuff I've read online. I'm sure it may take awhile for me to get the hang of it. That's part of the reason I'm waiting so long to move my V5 on to generation 3. I want to be able to devote most of my time to my P's and I don't want to have to worry about raising an infant V5 or building bonding points while I'm learning the ropes of the P's.

Apparently the card I have works on Paypal. That means I can start buying up older Tamas for cheap on Ebay. I'm at the point where I like Tamagotchi slightly better than Furby and I'd like to build a large collection.

I had a bit of a scare this morning. My P's went missing. Amazon claimed they shipped it out and UPS said they never got it. I spent awhile back and forth on the phone. They said it was delayed and wouldn't be here until Wednesday. But my package was still missing. Finally, they found it, and once again it's supposed to be here tomorrow. I'm a bit confused about the whole thing. But I hope they're right and it does show up tomorrow. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

 

My V5 is still the same as usual. Still adults. Still easygoing. Still loveable.

I got my P's today. I had a bit of difficulty figuring out how to open the battery compartment and get him started. And it took me a bit to get it started. I might still be figuring things out without the help of my fellow TamaTalkers. Thanks guys!

 

You may be wondering what I think of him. Well, this may be my favorite electronic pet of all time. Even over Furby and Aibo.  I had a hard time putting him down in order to type this. The color screen is beautiful. And despite my trouble figuring out the battery compartment I love it! No more worrying about stripped screws!

 

I got him over his needy stage. Boy did he poop a lot then. Right on the carpet too. That carpet's going to have more spots than a dalmation. Now he's a little turtle. I love the jump rope game. It's very easy to win. I'm thinking of buying a second P's next month so they can interact.

I accidently reset my P's trying to learn how to get the battery cover on and off. He's a baby again. The battery cover is a bit frustrating. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to get it back on once you get it off. You have to line everything up just right and it's a bit difficult. After repeatedly taking it on and off I think I have a general idea how to do it but I forsee changing batteries to be a massive pain in the butt. I hate that battery cover. Still worth it though. The P's is still great.

I finally got my P's out of the needy stage again after accidently resetting him like an idiot. He isn't a turtle this time. He's a ladybug looking thing. I bought him a ball to play with. He had fun with that. Now that he's out of the needy stage again I can relax a bit.

I retired my V5 for awhile. I want to concentrate on my P's. My V5 has served me well and it will always be special to me. It made me remember how great Tamagotchis are. Someday I will activate him once again.

 

As for my P's he's doing fine. I bought him a ball, a robot and a computer plus some cleaning supplies. He has a little over 5000 Gotchi Points. The jump rope game is incredibly easy but fun. Just what a Tama game should be. The P's games aren't as stingy with the Gotchi Points as the V5 games were. It's fairly easy to rack up the points.

 

I noticed that the P's go to bed fairly early. My guy passed out at 7:00 last night and was awake at 7 AM this morning. I've been using the clock set pause trick to pause him at night in case I oversleep. I don't want him to be awake unsupervised.

I kept my P's up past his bedtime last night by changing the clock. I spent about two hours playing the rope game to earn Gotchi points so that I could deck his house out in the outer space design. After that I spent a bit earning extra Gotchi points. He now has 24,170 gotchi points.  A nice sum. The reason I have so much is that when I took him outside he got a notice for double points at the game room and I was earning 400 points for every game won. I want to try to max out his Gotchi points but that may take awhile.
