- How long will my tamagotchi work if I never drop it or do anything to it? Will it last forever as long as I take good care of the case, make sure it doesn't get wet, and replace the battery, etc.?
In general, connexions are extremely sturdy pieces of tech. They're made out of rock hard plastic and have really thick screens. They are a childrens toy, so they need to be prepared for rough and tumble! Most people seem to wear Tamas around their neck or carry them in pouches. I would avoid putting them in pockets, because they get bumped a lot in pockets with no padding and the fabric can scratch off cute shell designs! They should last a verry long time, even after a lot of drops and bumps.
Colours are something to be more careful with. People have a lot of problems with colours not working properly in extreme temperatures, after minor bumps or drops and lots of other things. Be extremely ultra-careful with colours! Obviously they're also more expensive too, which is even more reason to be careful with them ;b. That all said, my iD Le hit a solid stone floor once and it still works fine, even though iD Les have trouble with the wires to the screen disconnecting after bumps.
- Where are the places I can find older tamagotchis? Ex: v3, v4, v4.5, etc. I only own one (all I've managed to find) and that was a few years ago at Walmart.
eBay, occasionally Amazon, flea markets and trades on Tamatalk or Tamazone.
