I know what the Tamagotchi looks like and i still bought a fake one, since the picture on the Ebay auction was that of the real bandai version :rolleyes:.

My advice is to always ask the seller in front if it is a real Bandai version. Don't buy it if the seller doen't respond. Also check if the picture is taken by the seller and if the tama looks like the colours released. I've collected the available colours at my site.

Some people can't buy Tamgotchi in their country, like me (T_T), so they have no other options than to buy it online. Here are some reliable Ebay sellers:
- Jason
- DMP88
- Jenny

Yep, Nanos are really great. I like to take one out once in a while and see how long I can keep it around. They are quite long lived and predictable pets.
I have played with the Nano Kitty the most. I really like him. :)

I like the Nano Double. I seem to have the rarest ones--Double and Dino. My Dino lost its back, though...so I have to tape the batteries in.

The Bandai website also dedicated a page to fake Tamagotchi it's in Japanese though, but the pictures might help out.

Fake tamagotchis are EVIL, or at least the people who sell them are. If you buy them on ebay, they're usually disguised :P
