I got my Tama-Go from Amazon for a pretty good price. It was under tweny dollars and the shipping was pretty good. I've been having quite a bit of fun with it. It's larger than the average tamagotchi, but I honestly don't mind as it makes it easy to hold while playing the games, and it sits up on its own. As a general rule, I'd be wary of anything coming out of China due to the ammount of knock offs. Generally, eBay or Amazon are good bets. There are a lot of recommendations on the forum for reputable sellers that have been proven trustworthy.

That's really cute that you want to order some when you have kids!
In general, I have purchased all of mine from eBay. It's really important to check feedback of the seller, as well as to know what you are looking for and the general price.
Some sellers on eBay may not ship to your location, but it never hurts to ask if they can or not.
A few personal favourites for me are: hhh_mz1, japanyouwant, and webwebo. That said, shop around. Some people recommend just going for 'Buy It Now' listings, but I have won a lot of cheap Tamagotchis through bidding.
I have gotten a Morino for $5.50 through hhh_mz1, 2 OsuMesutchi pairs for $40 through webwebo, and a vintage P2 from japanyouwant for $10. You have to be lucky!
