Ive checked all over our Toys R Us and found nothing, all they would do is point me to the neopets... >_< Maybe some one else will have better luck

i've talk to ppl at livejournal and they said that's where they found them near the neopets.

Darn darn darn! I went to my local Wal-mart and looked for tamagotchis but didn't find any. I asked the guy working in the toy department if they'll sell them in the next week, and he said he didn't think they had even ordered any! <_< Just my luck. Must try Toys R' Us now (I just happen to be going around that area tomorrow, though I doubt they'll have any). This is what I get for living in a hick state.

Thank you very much; that was kind of you to say. :lol: I hope I do, because on the 15th I'm moving onto my university's campus, and I won't have a car or anything, and there aren't any stores within walking or busing distance that will carry them (unless K-mart starts selling them...).

I've been thinking: how can Tamagotchi's (North) American release date be a Sunday? (The 15th's Sunday, right?) Isn't everything closed on Sunday?

usually mall stores are open on a sunday, at least in canada. some stores aren't open, but the larger department stores (walmart and even toys r us) will probably be open. check their opening and closing times.

Nothing's open here in Nova Scotia on Sunday. Well, drug stores and stores under a certain square footage... not even grocery stores. Yeah. Point is, everybody in Nova Scotia who's waiting for Tamagotchi Connection (that means, like, me and that other guy) won't be able to get them on the 15th unless we leave the province.

I forget that normal places of business operate 7 days a week in stupid normal places...

Here in the states, most everything is open on Sunday but close early (usually around 5 or 6 pm). The only places that are closed on Sunday are privately owned shops and Chick-fil-A (though that may vary from state to state). All other franchised businesses, malls, restaurants, etc. are open.

We're somewhat opposite here in Nova Scotia. Restaurants are open, some smaller businesses and bookstores, but not malls, large stores, or malls. (I like the part where I mention malls twice, makes me look smart, like I really want you guys to know malls are closed. So, I'm not editing that because it's funny.) We're so redneck...

Yeah, so, I guess I'm not getting a Tamagotchi Connection until the 16th on the Monday. Yearrrg I bet I'll work all day long and not be able to run out and get one, too...

God I hate NC! Today I was at the mall and went to KB Toys to see if they happened to be selling them yet. I asked, and they said they had never heard of tama connection (though they said if it's coming, they'll definitely have it before Christmas... oh boy! :) ). Then I drove to Toys R' Us and wandered around the store, then finally asked if they'd be selling them soon. The girl said that she hasn't seen them yet, so they probably won't have them any time soon (basically, every place I went to doesn't know what I'm talking about, and to make things better, I got myself lost on the way home from the store... I ended up 30 minutes north of my house and had no clue how to get back LOL what a great day!). How come you guys got so lucky?! *is jealous*

Yay, apathetic Wal-Mart employees! I went to one yesterday after reading this thread, and tah-dah! I guess I hadn't really appreciated that the US wasn't getting a blue one, though... Green is good enough, I guess. I've been to two other Wal-Marts in the Columbus, OH area since then, though, and I guess the stockers there are a little more attentive because neither of those had them. (I collect Transformers, so I spend a lot of time in Wal-Mart.) One of those was a really new one, and the other one is pretty nice. The one that had them out is kinda trashy and they're in the middle of remodelling, anyway, so they probably had other things to worry about. So, um, if you're in the Columbus, OH area, try the Hilliard Wal-Mart.

Wow you people who found the tamagotchis in Walmart are lucky. My boyfriend works at Walmart- so I asked him to keep an eye out for me. He did more than that. He asked the manager of the toy department if they were in. She said "no". He asked her when she would have them- and you know what she said? She said that she's not ordering them PERIOD. So, anyone's who's wondering, the Walmart on Route 22 in NJ, will not have tamagotchis any time soon. :) Those of you who did find them at Walmart-- did you go to a SuperStore? I know that we don't have any SuperStore's in NJ... maybe that's it??? I don't know... lol.
