Formal press release received from Bandai regarding the Golden Tamagotchi giveaways sponsored by Bandai...

Bandai America Sparks a Gold Rush with New Limited Edition
Golden Tamagotchi® Connection® “Virtual Pet”


Exclusive Golden Tamagotchi Not Available in Stores;
Fans Can Win One Via “Golden Month” Fan Celebration at Tamagotchi.com

(Cypress, CA – September 28, 2006) – For the first time in Tamagotchi history, Bandai America Inc. – inventor and pioneer of the worldwide “virtual pet” toy phenomenon – has designed and manufactured a special edition Tamagotchi to reward fans of all ages for their support.  Dubbed the “Golden Tamagotchi,” this limited edition toy will never be sold in stores, and only 2,000 units have been handcrafted and individually numbered for distribution in the United States. 

“What better way to thank our loyal fans after all these years than by creating the first limited edition Tamagotchi for the U.S. that can either be played with or left in its special packaging as an exclusive collectors item,” said Michael Riley, vice president of marketing, Bandai America.  “With a toy with this kind of exclusivity, there’s going to be a tremendous gold rush among kids to get their hands on one.” 

To score a Golden Tamagotchi, kids can log onto Tamagotchi.com throughout October to participate in “Golden Month,” a month-long celebration being thrown by the Tamagotchi King.  After correctly answering the fun trivia question of the day, fans will qualify for a daily random drawing.  Over a 30 day period – October 2-31 – a total of 300 Golden Tamagotchis will be awarded, with a list of the winners posted on the site at the end of each week. 

In addition to the Golden Month festivities, kids can increase their chances of claiming an elusive Golden Tamagotchi by tuning in to Radio Disney through the end of the year and participating in their call-in contests (check www.radiodisney.com for local station listings).

Quick update on the Golden Tamagotchi giveaway... The contest at Tamagotchi.com has ended now. There were some technical difficulties which prevented them from posting more of the winners names but (we are told) the names should be coming up soon.

Hope somebody was lucky enough to win one of these! :)
