After getting back into the hobby via the 20th Anniversary Tamagotchi Mini, I have a small collection of virtual pets right now;
20th Anniversary Tamagotchi Mini
Tamagotchi Connexion V2
Tamagotchi Connexion V4
Cyber Pet 168-in-1
The P1 is not my original from back in the day - it's just one that I picked up on eBay recently, because my original is unfortunately missing (the V2 and V4 were eBay buys, too, because I couldn't find my original V4, either). I'm sure that I kept it, along with all of my other virtual pets from back then (including a Nano Puppy, and a watch which I think was named My Virtual Pet Puppy in the UK, which was sometimes known in North America as "Poochie Puppy"), though, and I hope to find them all again at some point. If I do, I'll add them to this log. I also have a Chuppi (a Gyaoppi chicken virtual pet) on the way from Japan, which will also be added to this log when it arrives.
I decided that I may as well start logging, though updates might not always be super-frequent, and there might not be many photographs.
Right now, I'm running the Dinkie Penguin, the Cyber Pet 168-in-1, and the 20th Anniversary Tamagotchi Mini. So, I'll get started with a look at their current progress;
Dinkie Penguin: After completing a run of the fish/pizza growth-path, immediately followed by one of the apple growth-path, today I've hatched another penguin and will be taking the watermelon/ice cream/noodles growth-path. He's still just a hatchling right now, though. Today, he's been fed several times, and has taken a shower when he got his feathers dirty. I must be honest, though I find this feature cute when Dinkie Penguin gets older, I find it a little weird when he's just hatched, since penguin hatchlings are covered in non-waterproof down, and getting wet isn't a great thing for them. I know that this is because the Dinkie Penguin shares the same program and features as the Dinkie Dino, but I still find it a little odd nonetheless. In the end, I'm just happy to have a penguin virtual pet, though! (I only wish that I could find more.)
Cyber Pet 168-in-1: This virtual pet, which cost me just £3.25, is less of a virtual pet simulation, and more of a simulation of a virtual pet. I've been running it since December 23rd 2017, and the virtual pet promptly forgot the time shortly after I started it up. It puts itself into an automatic sleep-mode every now and then in order to save on battery-power, during which time it does nothing. When I bring it out of this state (by pressing the cancel button), all it does is poop. A lot. It's currently home to a penguin named Bob (as chosen from the tiny list of names that the unit presents you with after you've chosen a pet), who is quite a boring creature. He spends his days sliding around the screen, completely unanimated, and transforming into a rotund chicken when he's expressing happiness or sadness, or changing into a Babytchi when he's pooped. He stopped aging a long time ago - he's still 4, and probably always will be. I've been raising his weight to the maximum to see if it'll actually cause anything to happen, but it didn't, and he still keeps eating afterwards, with no further effect on his weight.
20th Anniversary Tamagotchi Mini: After giving it a break for a month or so in order to focus more on Dinkie Penguin, I hatched a little guy on this virtual pet just after hatching another penguin on Dinkie Penguin again. He's currently a Marutchi, and isn't currently doing much. I'm going to try to get a Mametchi last time, after having gotten Nyorotchi and Kuchipatchi on my previous runs.
As you can probably guess from the above, it's my preference to only run one or two virtual pets at a time (this is the opposite of what I did when I was younger, when I would run a lot of them at once), with one of them being a regular type of virtual pet, and the other (or, right now, others) being an undemanding type.
