That's a fake tamagotchi.

 

Remember, the original TMGCs only have 3 buttons. You can visit the Tamagotchi Warnings forum for information on fakes.

 

Here's some useful tips;

 

 

Some Tamagotchis do not even classify as a fake. Fake Tamagotchis are not real. They are fake if:

  • They are called Tamagotchi when they are not actually a Tamagotchi (they should not be called a tamagotchi anyway, as the word is trademarked)
  • They copy BanDai's tamagotchi design (on the egg/shell)
  • Have simular characters as the real Tamagotchis
  • Try to copy BanDai's icons
  • etc..

They are not fake if (and they are not a Tamagotchi, they are a Virtual Pet):

  • They do not look like a Tamagotchi
  • Not the same concept (ie: Not a creature from a planet)
  • No way do they copy the development of a Tamagotchi (ie: If the Virtual Pet is a dog)
  • etc..

Unfortunately, that one seems to be a fake Tamagotchi. -_-

I doubt it's a vintage fake, as it's got "Tamagotchi Connection" stamped on it, and those are the 2004 and onwards series. With that said, some fakes are actually pretty neat. I don't have personal experience with this particular one, but I wouldn't write it off w/o giving it a go. :)

Hmm. The giraffe icon thing looks a bit familiar. There's a fake with the giraffe character as the display called "Animal Imagination." http://www.aliexpres.../841733178.html

Edit: If you scroll down, the seller is selling even more fakes...
