I the first time hmmm.... I don't really remember. I'm to young for memory loss!!! :D Ok I can't remember the first time I saw one, but do remember the first time I heard about one. I was in the car with my father and he started talking about them to my sort of stepmom. I wanted one after that.

i was in 4th grade and lotsa people in my class had them... i went out and bought one, but of course it didnt stay at just one. it was a huge craze at my school and i had about 20 all chained together in a big blob of plastic eggs hahah. then the school banned them (as they did for everything that got popular, tamagotchis, pokemon cards, yoyos) and the crazy sorta winded down. i lost interest in my tamagotchis and I think i sold my string at a garage sale for a few dollars. Bummer! Now i wish I had kept them. :D

LOL! Nice way to leave a legend behind :D My school did the same thing, though I didn't have one at the time.

I can't remember where I first saw one... probably at school.. I just knew I wanted one. :)

I think my older sister told me about them, then we bought one for each of us, I don't really remember because I was in fifth grade then and I have never been the best at remembering things like that.

Um... lessee. I never knew about the original Tamagotchi. (We didn't go shopping much). I got started on the fad when the Angels came out. I BEGGED my mom to buy me one. After whining and arguing, she gave in. I also got the little pouch to carry it in and the Game Boy Color game. So yeah. Then I went to school and my friend Nicole was like WHOA, I have one of those too! (hers was a Gen 2)
I remember the McDonalds toys that they gave out, lol. Nicole had the blue light-up one, and I have the Kutchipatchi "which direction" one.

I first saw it while I was in line with my mom and younger sister to buy one from Liberty House (when there was one). I don't remember how we heard of them, but I remember being near the front of the line, and my cousin and Aunty being somewhere in the back. We had them come up next to us. :lol:

They didn't let us choose the color of our Tamagotchis though. ;) That sucked. But I got a decent-looking one! ^_^
