Found these, they're obviously fake but the seller says they're "Not Bandai Brand" so I am guessing they're calling them tamagotchi's because its an easy relative term for digital pets. I rather like the shell designs and the neat clip though, if they had 3 buttons I'd have bought it just to swap a real one into the shell.

 

Has anyone tried these?

Not worth it.

$5 new.

 

MAYBE $5.

I understand why sellers of off brand pets use Tamagotchi in the item description. It's the most recognizable digital pet brand and a lot of people who collect Tamas also collect off brand pets. But it's still a bit annoying to have to wade through fakes while shopping for a real Tama.

Wow those look unusual. I wonder what that clip is about? Even though they are fakes I think they look pretty cool. :) Still would not get 1 though since they are fakes and does not look like there is much to do on it either.

These suck sooo much. They are completely boring.  :o I do have the little zipper chain though - it's kind of cool. It unzips and you can use it like a lanyard to hang around your neck. I never used it but.. haha.

if you want one with a similar case you should check the ones from dealextreme they are CHEAP and the shipping is free (and maybe you find worth palying with them untill you use the buttons or else as replacement parts)...

Theres also several rip-offs in dealextreme besides this couple:

Pd: They are atm sold out but they usually refill their stock.
