  1. Never thought of that! Sounds neat. Maybe you could create a new thread about this, where we all could try and post what we get?
  2. I probably would not play with one of them, just the other one. It's fun to have something unobtainable in one, I think.
  3. I usually don't even use a guide, finding out where everything is sometimes is part of the fun Though it's still good to use one at some point to make sure you're not missing out on some function, since some things might not be obvious.
  4. Most people who have the colored versions don't know Japanese, language is not a barrier at all since you don't need to know the language to enjoy the toy. I mean, how much do you look at what's written on the tamas you have? It's just a matter of memorizing the menus which isn't too hard.
  5. The connectors might be faulty. Try wiping the figure's connectors (I believe they are heart shaped) with some rubbing alcohol.
  6. Also, I feel like I shouldn't speak about this issue since I'm white myself, but I've noticed that a lot of times it's just caucasian people who buy these kits to try to "prove that they're not 100% white"- they think that just because they're like, 1/36 African it suddenly means that they have authority to speak about what is and isn't racist or something. Of course that's not everybody but it is what I've seen.
  7. Giochi preziosi is an European importer of toys, so yes, it is legitimate.
  8. None of these is in English nor has too exciting gameplay (in my opinion, meetses and mixes are all about the genetic mixing and not much else and the 4U gets bland fast without an expensive compatible device). They are fairly easy to use though, as all tamagotchi versions are.
  9. It's a very old render from the TamaTown era I believe, yes. It is interesting that it is being reused!
  10. These test kits are kind of dangerous since they are automatically put into a crime database... It's safer to go to the city hall of your birthplace and ask for a genealogy tree there honestly. Genealogy is indeed interesting but I'm not that interested in mine, even though my immediate family is very, very small, since I don't know my father or my father's family side.
  11. It was released, in Japan.All releeases are in Japan first. It will be released in the US sometime later. So I doubt there are plans for a connection yet, not until Japan does it first.
  12. I’d say that unless it’s a person that’s known and trusted in the community, I’d be wary, but probably as long as you use paypal it should be alright.
  13. Sadly it doesn't prove anything. We've been told to wait and see with wink faces for years now, though before that it was always through email. I don't think they will do a connection re-release at least until Japan does it, though Japanese connection are so different from English connections it would be more difficult. Except for the v1 since those are pretty much identical.
  14. Isopropyl alcohol is your best bet, though vinegar also works.
  15. I mostly play Cookie Run nowadays.
  16. I don't think there are money codes, I think games are the only way to make money. Could be wrong though but I think codes are only for buying items in the version. Your character gets an allowance every time they grow up.
  17. In Sims 4 it’s more like same gender couples can have babies, not same sex. Sex and gender are separate concepts, in Sims 4 sims with custom gender are emulating experiences of transgender people. While I’m a trans guy I do think that being transgender would be a bit too much to include in such a simple toy for kids though, so let’s stay within the same sex scenario. While humans in real life cannot reproduce on same sex basis without scientific help (it’s possible for two cis female individuals to have biological offspring via bone marrow but it’s costly and still experimental), a LOT of animals can: -All animals that have some sort of hermaphroditism (snails) -All animals that can change sex at will (a lot of fish, including clownfish) -Animals that just happen to be able to reproduce despite being of same sex (mexican whiptail lizards are all female- males do exist but they are „useless” as its the females who mate and reproduce. Yes they do need to mate, they don’t produce eggs asexually) -Animals that do not adhere to the human perceived gender binary, like bees. We think that all bees except drones are female but scientifically speaking, it’s more accurate to say that every „inherent role” in a bee’s world is a whole separate sex. All of this is 100% scientific, biological, supported by facts and non-political. Tamagotchi creatures are nonhumanoid aliens that lay eggs, and after all the toy DID treat the whole gender thing very loosely in the early versions. I think getting rid of the gender marker would be the best possible option, and not impossible- Gudeta in Sanrio Mix is genderless! Japan is pretty accepting of the idea of genderless characters, you can see them quite often even in media for children. A lot of people complain about male characters in the color versions, especially one where mixing is an option, are „ugly”, so making all characters gender neutral would be the best bet for this problem.
  18. Tamagotchi +Color has no downloads functionality though. iD, iD L and P’s have IrDA while 4U and 4U+ has NFC.
  19. Sometimes used ones with a pierce go for 70+s on japanyouwant, but on ebay you can only get prices in 100s pretty much.
  20. Yes you can only have a limited amount sadly, that's why you can delete some entries.
  21. I am personally against letting children take care of pets until they are over the age of 13 and really do a lot of research regarding the pet (though parents should also do that to not let the children "experiment" with the experience), unless said pet is large enough to be the whole family's responsibility like a cat or dog. A lot of pets that are considered "entry level" for kids are actually not all that easy to take care of and require a lot of care to be happy. For example, hamsters actually need quite HUGE cages, a "perfect" cage for a golden hamster (just one! They are solitary animals!) is a whooping 100x100cm. A bare minimum is one that's at least 100cm wide on one side. The hamster wheel needs to be quite large to prevent back injuries, the food has to be good quality (no budget food!), proper diet has to be mantained (mostly grain, fruits and vegetables only as an occassional treat since they're not healthy for hamsters, also since hamsters are omnivores they need some bug protein from time to time). Then there's daily cleaning, understanding that a hamster can bite you, etc. I'm speaking from my own experience as I've had pets since I was a young child and when I realized that a lot of my first pets have been vastly mistreated still eats at me to this day. Goldfish are a whole another story too - aquarium keeping is NOT an easy task! But at the same time I know that children are not stupid and know a difference between a Tamagotchi and an actual pet, and just because a child can take care of a Tamagotchi doesn't necessarily mean they'd be a good pet caretaker, and even vice versa. But if there's no other way, it's definitely better to offer them a Tamagotchi rather than an actual pet. Though I personally think that parents should never 100% give children full responsibility of an animal, unless they are sure the child is doing a good job at it, they should be responsible too.
  22. When I say that I like tamagotchis people usually answer that with "...what? they still exist?". Poland is one of the countries that sadly did not get the mini or vintage remakes so people are still pretty much out of the loop even about that, but then again we didn't get any vintages back when they were first released either. The first bandai tamagotchi that actually got released here was the v3, and the last was tamagotchi friends. But when they do they are usually quite pleased and are like "wow, cool".'
  23. A vast majority of the characters are from Osutchi and Mesutchi so you can try these too, granted they’re less advanced than a v2 but have a lot of exclusive as well as known characters.
  24. There's no Japanese v2, no. It seems like a lot of characters from it are either from the vintages or the Osutchi and Mesutchi, also some debug characters from v1.
