Sorry for making topics with a lot of questions, but I'm thinking about buying some more Tamagotchi's after I get my Mothra one (Not right away though! I will give it some time before buying others.) I'm not really interested in the Connection ones or whatever the new ones are called, I'm mostly interested in the older ones, but I have a few questions about them that I haven't seen answered elsewhere.
This one looks very interesting to me, it did when I was a kid too, but all the commercials made it seem like it was only for girls so I didn't buy one (I thought that the people who made Tamagotchi didn't want boys to buy it.) anyways now I'm older (twenty three now, I was like eight or nine when they came out.) and I'm still interested in it, but I'm wondering if it would be better to buy a Japanese version? is there anything in the American version that is different from the Japanese version? I heard some of the characters got taken out or something.
This one also looks VERY interesting to me, but from everything I've read it is very VERY difficult to take care of, apparently it can be killed off by Polar bears? but is that the only reason it is difficult to care for? or is it also really demanding, what I mean is there more to it being hard to take care of besides the polar bears.
Also I see the secret character in the Japanese version is a mermaid, is it different for the english version? if I do get it which one is better?
Mori No Tamagotchi:
I've always loved insects so this one is also very interesting to me, but would the people here recommend it? is it hard to take care of? I heard you have to save them from Frogs, and Feet.
The only thing about this one is the price, the only place I've seen them is on Ebay, and they seem to be hundreds of dollars, which if it's under $300 I might be willing to pay that much, but I'm wary about dumping that much money into a Tamagotchi, and I've seen a lot for even $500!
Anyways besides all that one last question, is Ebay the best place to buy them? or is there another site with a good selection and prices? I've already checked Amazon, but they don't seem to have much in the way of the old Tamagotchis.
Thanks for any help!
