Hi everyone!! It's my first time posting here and I would like some help :)

 

I've just purchased this Version 3 Tamagotchi on Ebay. The seller has 100% positive feedback ratings but I'm just a little worried as I can't find this shell design on the internet anywhere? The packaging looks legit but the Tamagotchi itself does not have the logo on it. What do you think? Is it a region specific design or something?

 

Thank you!!

That's a cute shell design! I have only seen it once before. I think it's a European Version 3. Some countries do not have the "Tamagotchi" logo on the shell designs. Also, different countries have different packagings. It's not fake. Fake Tamagotchis usually have weird spellings and/or lack the Bandai logo on the packaging.

Yes :) The "Bandai" on the packaging should tell you that it's a real tamagotchi because if a company were really to use that logo on a fake product you can bet that they'd be in trouble...

Good luck with your new V3!

Yep--it's legit.  I saw this too, but lost interest when I saw that it would not ship to the US.  Very pretty shell.  My keitai is similar.
