Looking through the reviews here it doesn't seem very encouraging. I'd proceed with caution.

 

Ra,

its actually a great page. They sell monster high on it which is another fandom of mine and has hundreds of great reviews from members on our facebook and forum pages. I have ordered from it. the only downside is it's like ebay so look at peoples feedback. and becuase its an asian page it comes form places like hong kong and such and there for shipping takes a while/

Looking at what Ra has posted and what Ciara has said, it seems like you should make sure you only buy from sellers with good feedback since it seems like the website itself won't refund you or anything since people where saying "No buyer protection, etc"

I would be quite cautious about this as Ra has provided a very detailed and disturbing review. <3

Would it be worth having a look around to see if you can find those vpets on another (more reliable) auction site?  It wouldn't hurt to wait a while and search around would it? :) ;)

I purchased my English IDL from Taobao. I found them to be thorough and efficient.

Ooooo I'd want the bunny one. o.o But I wonder how it's cared for? Or if it's just a watch with a pet on it sorta like a screen saver?

I've had experience with both, they're just like ebay. just make sure your seller has positive feedback

it looks like you care for them to a certain extent...if you look at the link I originally posted and scroll down you can see images of them and looks like you can play with them and put them to sleep maybe and feed them

Oh i didn't see those pictures. Hm, I might get all 3, they look adorable. I really want the bunny and dog, but if I get the cat, too, I have the collection.

I am not experienced with the site you mentioned .But i know how to check a site is legit or not ..Use the site Whoisxy.com to get the detail of the website.If the result shows all the details of the site (such as owner,location,etc) means it is legit site, heck the review of the site in Google .I checked it .According to me it is a formatted good site.You also check it ..

Wat. That Aliexpress web site has heaps of fake Tamagotchis. XD Taobao would be the best to use.
